"What are the world's goals that seem
to be more worthy of a Higher Seeing?
They could be the need for material possessions,
for money, for a job working for a corporation,
they could be saving money for retirement and having a nest egg
you think you will be able to enjoy in your declining years,
it may be the desire for a family, to be a father, a mother a whatever,
it may be some pious goal like wanting to be a priest,
or thinking one is enlightened like David Hoffmeister thinks he is..."
A WORTHY JOURNEY
Thursday, December 02, 2010
My lesson has been,
"He has need of your most holy mind to save the world. Is not this purpose worthy to be yours? Is not Christ's vision worthy to be sought above the world's unsatisfying goals? "
It says that Spirit has need of your mind. And it asks if you feel this is a worthy purpose, that is, for Him to use your mind to save the world?
'Save the world' means that you come to be safe, that your mind is not housed in fear, danger or weakness. If our mind is secure, not afraid, and aware that it is of the unlimited Spirit World, then that one mind affects all minds. That is what it means when your scripture talks about this so-called 'dying for your sins.' It means that if one person can make their mind safe, then that will affect other minds, that it will influence other people to rise up and be spirit rather than pretend to be a weak ego.
So the whole of the spiritual path is to make your mind safe, a haven for peace. And that mind 'saves the world' by not being a contributor to the dangers and uncertainties and poisons of the world that is cluttered with fear, hate, guilt, shame, egotism, pride, selfishness, etc.
So it asks if I want to participate in His Plan by agreeing to His Terms in doing what I must do to have my mind restored to how He gave it in the creation of it. When I say MIND I am not speaking about the brain. I am speaking about the source of intelligence that lies beyond the brain. The mind is not physical, like the brain is. The mind is metaphysical. It is formless, and it is boundless, but within the costume of the body it USES THE BRAIN to transmit what the mind is receiving from Spirit.
In the Lesson, 'Christ's vision' does not have anything to do with Jesus. Christ's vision is when your higher mind sees and this seeing is greater than what the body's eyes sees.
For example, if you read something written by some wise person, and you say, "Oh, wow, I see what you mean..." then that is seeing beyond the body's eyes. It is vision. It is seeing with the mind. That is what Christ's vision is. And it asks me if I think this kind of seeing, a seeing from the Higher Mind, is worthy and more satisfying than the goals the world assigns as worthy.
What are the world's goals that seem to be more worthy of a Higher Seeing? They could be the need for material possessions, for money, for a job working for a corporation, they could be saving money for retirement and having a nest egg you think you will be able to enjoy in your declining years, it may be the desire for a family, to be a father, a mother a whatever, it may be some pious goal like wanting to be a priest, or thinking one is enlightened like David Hoffmeister thinks he is, or it may be thinking one has some special message, that one has been specially selected to do 'God's work'. All these could be aspirations that the ego, or the world suggests we must acquire.
And it says, "Is any of that more important than realizing you are a Son of God, that you are the Christ but you have forgotten this?"
So it is up to us to come to awaken. Sooner or later we all must, and as the world continues to deteriorate, it is more important now than ever before to start identifying with the Other World and the truth of your Self than continue to defend this pitiful definitions we have made of ourselves as some physical object.
