“The Holy Spirit teaches thus: There is no hell. Hell is only what the ego has made of the present.” (T-15.I.7)
Do any of us still believe in hell? Or fear that, in some form, it still might be true?
In some form it is true: the hellish present that the ego gives us.
And this present can indeed be hellish.
The teaching is from the Holy Spirit, Who makes no mistakes. His Way is true. His Way is accurate. And His Way is there for all of us to follow, just being true to His Word and walking a sure path into a higher consciousness.
If we were led by the ego previously, then remember that there is a time delay before events are materialized in this world. We will see that what we believed somewhat earlier makes its way into our world. And only with that time delay, a delay that is actually helpful, for it gives us time to change our minds. If our thoughts were immediately actualized, we would be in trouble indeed.
Know that you can change the hellish present into a better future just by relinquishing the egoic state of mind.
So many gifts for such a relinquishment! We are indeed blessed, with a way out of our anguish and a better way assured for us in the future.
