"Now this is the bridge to peace,
and I WILL cross over it into Another World,
where my home will be prepared for my safe return.
They have told me this is so."
BRIDGE TO TRANQUIL END
Sunday, March 10, 2013
Today daylight savings time has returned, the coming of spring; spring forward.
And today is 3/10/13; 3 +1 +13 = 8
Or 3/10/2103; 3 + 1 + 2+ 1+ 3 = 10
The number 8 is the symbol of harmony and balance; the number 10 is the symbol of completion.
A cycle has been completed.
And today I begin a new Lesson that reads, “What is the Holy Spirit?”
Now the Lesson reads,
“The Holy Spirit mediates between illusions and the truth. Since He must bridge the gap between reality and dreams, perception leads to knowledge through the grace that He has given Him, to be His gift to everyone who turns to Him for truth. Across the bridge that He provides are dreams all carried to the truth to be dispelled before the light of knowledge. There are sights and sounds forever laid aside. And where they were perceived before, forgiveness has made possible perception’s tranquil end.”
I am Told today of a bridge, that I cross over, have crossed over, will cross over again, that returns my mind to truth; an exchange of my perceptions for His. I want my home returned to me, the heaven from which I think I have been exiled. I want my Home returned to me, the Heaven from which I think I have been exiled. It is the same thing.
It is the return of my mind that I am not separated from love or truth; that Heaven is here now and can be no other place. And so I have never left my home. I have never left my Home, and this remembrance returns me to it/It.
Today His gift is a tranquil end to my perceptions of exile from my home.
Now the memory of a story comes to me.
It occurred to me this morning a story about Jesus, when they took him to the cross. They had all rejected him, and stripped from him his cloak, his only last possession, and gambled on it, to figure out who would win the cloak and claim his possession as their own. They took his last possession for their own use, and rejected him and his message. They cared nothing for him or his message. They only cared for his possession, the cloak off his back.
Now I think of possessions I left in my home when I was asked to leave. What happened to them? They all agreed I must be exiled; I must be removed. Not a single one stood in my defense. Not one of them.
When I was told I had to leave my home, and when my home was given to another, all my possessions were taken and distributed among them, casting me out of their world and keeping my possessions. And now they live with my possessions in their homes, the comfort provided to them FREELY. And what was my reward for this? Not a single one stood in my defense, and yet every one of them wishes to be comforted, protected, in their respective homes. Can one wish for exile for another but demand comfort for themselves?
No one came to my defense. They all agreed that I should be removed; they whispered about how I wanted someone’s money, and even removed the possibility of my ever returning to my home, first by placing a price too high to pay, and second, the news after the fact, a guarantee I would be permanently removed from my home/Home.
And yet they all share my possessions in their homes, distributed amongst themselves, wanting what I have but wanting nothing of the truth, a truth His Bridge reveals to me now, today, a truth I dared not to admit to myself, nor to others. But here it is. They cast away my home like they cast away me and my possessions; how valueless it has all been to them.
Now this is the bridge to peace, and I WILL cross over it into Another World, where my home will be prepared for my safe return. They have told me this is so.
It is the symbolism that is important to me, the metaphor; the translation of my memories and world to His. They did not care about Jesus or his truth, or his message, a message of Another World. They only cared about his cloak and distributed it among themselves.
And they did not care about my message, but only my possessions, and they distributed them among themselves. I am pleased the energy of my world and my possessions brings them comfort. I do not care about the possessions now. But I do care about this insight He is giving me today. And whether there is any truth to it or not, I cannot deny that this day of Harmony and Completion has brought forth this message I will leave in the world. Let they who discover do so according to His Wishes.
They always spoke of how I was taking advantage of another, and today I discover they only tried to take advantage of me, and when they were done, cast me aside like a possession of no use. But this is not bitterness that flows from my veins and mind and fingers. Nor will any one of them ever possess me.
I have crossed a bridge today. He is giving me this bridge to cross. His grace lights my mind with this knowledge, and I am lighter. The remnants of sickness are shed. I have this peace and tranquil end, because I also know they can take nothing from me, nor can they give me anything, nor can they decide where I will live or with whom. For my exile has been their own wish for themselves, and I wish them well with it.
Today it is done in me, that there has been no exile from my home. Spirit asked me to leave and I did willingly.
I was asked to leave my home to experience and delivery the message of the bridge to a tranquil end.
And I was asked to leave my Home, to carry the Message across the bridge to other worlds/minds.
Today my memory is corrected, because the Great Sacred Spirit and Mediator translates the false into truth, and that is what this message demonstrates. Let no mind misperceive, nor be bitter by what their eyes fall upon today.
We share the bridge to discovery now, today. They all have made it possible. And I wish them well.
It is good.
It is so.
