“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.”—Niels Bohr
Are you thinking about righting that over-turned apple cart I talked about yesterday?
Not so fast.
ACIM Lesson 114 continues to emphasize that what I think I see with my eyes is nothing but a made-up illusion.
What IS REAL is the fact that I am spirit.
The ONLY surety is that I am a multi-dimensional energy field upon which no body can impose limitations. Which means anything material I see out there is temporary, at best.
This is REALLY GOOD NEWS. Knowing this fact is invaluable when wanting to upgrade your life. Any issue or problem that seems to be starring in your life story can be easily changed. This is a statement worth repeating often.
The only reason that thing you’re not crazy about seems so stubborn (say lack of money or struggling relationships) is that you keep animating it into your life with your attention.
My possibility posse last week launched a commission to over-ride some of the belief systems that hold this crazy world in place. And first thing on the agenda is declaring all apparent problems to be temporary, ephemeral.
Acknowledging that any situation that doesn’t make us feel connected and in love and wanting to break out in dance(say the political situation or societal divisions) is far from written in stone.
Again, it only seems that it is because we keep staring at it, pointing at it, pronouncing it true. Woe is us!
It will only stay “true” as long as we continue to invest our energy into it.
As Buckminster Fuller so aptly said, we can’t change the existing reality by fighting. We can only change it by building a new model that makes the existing one obsolete.
And it all starts by knowing…..it’s not real. It’s temporary. It’s on the stage of my worldview because I put it there with my belief that it’s permanently etched on stone tablets.
So bloody reassuring to know that it’s not.
