a significant inner journey

 

"We must go into the discomfort in order for this transformation to occur.

We must have this psychic change, which is a permanent change,

and not just convince ourselves we 'love' ourselves and we are 'good' people

and all this other horseshit that people speak."

THE APPROPRIATE THOUGHT

 

March 15, 2013

     Today I begin a new Lesson.

 

 

I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts.”

 

 

   

       How appropriate is THIS?

 

    

     This seems very appropriate considering the past several lessons I have written.

 

 

     He speaks of my thoughts that hurt me. So I poured out all of the thoughts that I felt were hurting me. Bear in mind this Lessons follows the theme, “WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?” in which it is said that He is the Great Translator of fearful thoughts to those of Love.

 

 

     So when I use my power to harm my mind, this is called “ill use” of power. It brings “illusions” and fearful dreams.

 

 

     When I am willing to give ALL MY THOUGHTS to Him to show me the correction, then He restores my mind to right thinking, what is called inspiration, which cleanses one.

 

 

     We must go into the discomfort in order for this transformation to occur. We must have this psychic change, which is a permanent change, and not just convince ourselves we “love” ourselves and we are “good” people and all this other horseshit that people speak.

 

 

     So while I am telling Him of my hurtful thoughts, of the ideas that seem to be impossible to me, He tells me, “These thoughts of impossible conditions are causing you hurt and pain”. And so again, whatever I perceive to be impossible, that causes me pain, must be false, as He retranslates these thoughts to His Perception.

 

 

     This is the same as I previously written:.

 

 

 

Truth will set me free.

I am not free because I am a prisoner to this disturbance.

Therefore, this disturbance is not part of truth and cannot set me free."

 

 

 

     I am not free but caught in the pain and hurt of my thoughts, and so the peace His Thoughts would offer me I ignore. But in order to have the peace of His Thoughts, I must be done with the thoughts I keep that hurt me. And so I release to Him the thoughts that cause me hurt and pain, because they are not true. They are lies.

 

 

     If I think, “This is an impossible situation with no answer,” and this causes me pain and hurt, then it is up to me to give these to Him to retranslate to truth, and that retranslation must bring inspiration and joy, happiness, peace and release. This is why the lesson yesterday He offered me was, “I place the future in the Hands of God,” because on a DAILY BASIS the energy OF the Unseen is constantly shifting me and moving me higher and higher out of the false and into the true. It is the appropriate way TO think. It is the appropriate thought I think today. It is not mechanical and made up. It is His Gift Given TO my sacred mind.

 

 

     If it is possible that my thoughts alone cause me pain, then it is possible in correction OF them my thoughts alone will cause me peace. This is what he calls “the happy dream”, whereby He says all that I think and experience in my earthly journey will be transformed, because the power of the mind cannot be contained and confined to images of fear and discontent.

 

 

     So He may say, “If you think of impossibility that causes you pain, then you do not see the possibility. You make the possibility impossible and this causes you pain. You make in your mind the possible that is too far to reach, and this causes you grief. But whatever IS the possibility, it will not be part of this discomfort and the conclusions you have drawn about yourself and your life and your journey and your function in this world.”

 

 

     So today I offer Him the power of my thoughts that keep me heavy with uncertainty, and remember that “The things that seem impossible with men are possible with God, “ and that, “There are no laws but God’s. I am under no laws but God’s”. I do not have to know outcomes. I only know, based on past experiences, and from hindsight, that every perceived difficulty He has ever walked me through has led me to freedom, peace, successful outcome, and profound experience indescribable.

 

 

     This means that Spirit, not man, is in charge, and that there is unlimited possibility and potential in ANYTHING I think that has kept my views limited, myopic and restricting.
