Who can remain with a disturbance but convince himself he is forgiven?
Only a fool, caught in the trap of denial, would make such a claim.
The Great Lie Hidden In The Words, I am forgiven.
Friday, November 06, 2009
Today I think of he who claims to be forgiven and will investigate such a statement.
It seems perplexing to me for a being to say, I am disturbed by a thief, and I do not need to look inside myself as to why this bothers me, and in the same breath say, I am forgiven. Are these two opposing concepts not clearly contradictory?
To say, I do not need to look inside myself as to why this bothers me cannot be less than the demonstration of a fearful mind, a closed mind, that thinks its desire to claim I am forgiven is sufficient to bring about a healing TO the disturbed mind.
Who can remain with a disturbance but convince himself he is forgiven? Only a fool, caught in the trap of denial would make such a claim.
How convenient for a being to not go into his disturbances regarding thieves, but retain the idea he is forgiven. In such a manner, one never has to LOOK AT his disturbance.
And so it is suppressed, pushed down into the subconscious mind, to rot the soul. It is the dirty secret that is placed into the closet of the closed mind. And placed on the door OF the closed mind that keeps hidden this disturbance is a clichι, an affirmation, a sign, a clever and cute slogan such as I am forgiven that keeps the mind deceived ABOUT its unsettled disturbance.
Yet to merely recite and repeat words do not make them a truth.
This being is disturbed by thieves. He is bothered by thieves. What does the thief reflect FOR him ABOUT himself?
Is not he who says, I am forgiven a thief? Does he think he can steal forgiveness from the Heavens for his own personal use?
Does not Father forgive them imply that only the Father can forgive? How can the ignorance of man use the Gifts of the Unseen for his own perverted end?
So the thief is disturbed by thieves?
He who claims, then, I am forgiven while remaining disturbed and refusing to look AT his disturbance is a thief. He has attempted to steal the Light from the Other World for his own personal gain.
He is deceived to think that mere words are truths by which he lives. And to reveal these things to him will bring ANOTHER disturbance. But no worry; he is forgiven.
If a man is to say to himself, I am a mouse, does this make it true for him? Is it true for a man to say he is a mouse, while being something else?
In much the same way, to say, I am forgiven, while resenting the thief is a lesson in self-deception. And he IS a mouse if he scurries into darkness each time a disturbance is brought to his attention.
The one who finds thieves disturbing does not see he himself is a thief who has attempted to steal Grace from the Higher Realms for his own personal use.
Until he can see that he is a thief, and this is WHY thieves disturb him, he will remain a thief, remain unforgiven, but convince himself otherwise.
I am forgiven means nothing to a disturbed thief. It does not make a mind forgiven, or healed, or corrected of its misperceptions.
I am a mouse does not make one a mouse, unless of course one wishes to live AS a mouse.
Now I wonder if he who thinks he is forgiven will not be disturbed by this message the Unseen sends to him today?
What Forgiving Source would place these words into this beings hands today?
If I am Asked to use time and attention to write this, would he who is forgiven take the time and attention to study it?
After all, he who says, I am forgiven should be elated by such discoveries. Perhaps he can share them with another?
Today my Lesson reads,
"The conscious choice of Heaven is a sure as is the ending of the fear of hell, when it is raised from its protective shield of unawareness, and is brought to light."
