From The End of Death, Volume One
Listen to the AUDIO VERSION here
Through Jesus’ resurrection and Atonement, He has already collapsed the ego’s dream of death. All we’re seeing and experiencing is the echo of our own free ego will, or personal will. We will to see only the ego’s dream, because our unconscious attraction to guilt as self-punishment has been too great. This is the only reason we still appear to witness a world of suffering and death. As our own deep-rooted fear of Love is brought to light and healed, the ego’s echo, along with its interpretation of the 3-D world, will fall away to reveal the Real World of unopposed Love and joy.
Jesus was the first to overcome the ego’s central dream of physical death. He dispelled the grandest of all illusions, this nonnegotiable ego belief in, and attraction to death in all its forms. He realized our belief in the ego’s dream of death keeps us from the embodied knowledge of our self as the Christ. In His resurrection he proved no illusion, not even death itself, is more powerful than a healed mind.
In His demonstration of miracles, He reversed the ego’s paradigm of cause and effect. In doing so He proved indisputably that the mind is cause and the body/world are purely effects seen externally, yet recognized exclusively as being within the mind. He overlooked the ego’s laws, and lived out only from God’s Laws. He encourages us to do the same.
This world, our body and the Real World exist only in our mind. While they appear to unfold in time externally, they are caused first within the mind, and occur there simultaneously with the outer projected experience. The same is true of the ego’s dream of death. The so-called death realm is not a place; it’s simply a state of mind. As long as death remains an experience we unconsciously desire, we continue to manifest the death realm within our mind.
The body is the hero of the ego dream. Without the body there can be no ego, for without the concept of the body’s physical death, the ego cannot survive. The ego requires a body to enforce its beliefs and manifest its fear paradigm. The body, you see, is our greatest repository for guilt—so into the body we must go to undo the dream of death. This dream of death includes all forms of sickness, pain, conflict or scarcity, all of which play out through the body. How can we possibly transcend the illusion of death without the body?
“The body is the central figure in the dreaming of the world. There is no dream without it… It takes the central place in every dream, which tells the story of how it was made by other bodies, born into the world outside the body, lives a little while and dies, to be united in the dust with other bodies dying like itself. In the brief time allotted it to live, it seeks for other bodies as its friends and enemies. Its safety is its main concern. Its comfort is its guiding rule. It tries to look for pleasure, and avoid the things that would be hurtful. Above all, it tries to teach itself its pains and joys are different and can be told apart.” T-27.VIII.1.
“This single lesson does [the body] try to teach again, and still again, and yet once more; that it is cause and not effect. And you are its effect, and cannot be its cause.” T-27. VIII.3:4-5 Thus are you not the dreamer, but the dream.” T-27.VIII.4:1-2
The body must be totally surrendered to God’s purpose, if we wish to facilitate a comprehensive reversal of the world’s thinking, and welcome the Real World into our perception. The body is meaningless in itself. It is neutral. All meaning arises from the purpose we have assigned to it. Who is in charge of and responsible for our body? Is it the ego or Spirit?
As long as I still believe the body can attack and be attacked, and while I attempt to meet the body’s illusory needs independently from Spirit, I must believe I am a body and not the incorruptible Holy Self. If that is the case, I will surely believe in, and therefore live out from the ego’s unholy laws.
Yet if I’ve given my body’s purpose to Spirit, I will know my perfect guiltlessness—which translates literally to my perfect immunity under God’s laws. And that includes the body’s immunity! But if I believe in the body as myself, the certain outcome is death. As long as I continue to believe in the ego’s laws instead of God’s laws, I make the body real and give it status more powerful than God’s Love.
Jesus’ is not teaching immortality of the body. That would be pointless, as the body is seen to hold no special value or importance, once perception has been healed. It will last as long as it is seen to be useful, and then be gently laid aside without regret.
His teaching is designed to help us overcome and undo the body/world’s ego purpose. It is here to give the body/world the Holy purpose of forgiveness. Forgiveness is the undoing of guilt, heralding the return of the Holy Self and its Real World to our awareness.
“The real world was given you by God in loving exchange for the world you made and the world you see. Only take it from the hand of Christ and look upon it. Its reality will make everything else invisible, for beholding it is total perception. And as you look upon it you will remember that it was always so. Nothingness will become invisible, for you will at last have seen truly.” T-12.VIII.8:1-5
As long as we still believe we are victims of the body and world, the body is believed to be more powerful than our mind. It is stronger than God’s Will. And, simply put, if this is so we will not awaken from the ego’s dream. Sickness, pain, conflict, depression, scarcity and death are blocks to the awareness of Love’s presence. Thus they are manifestations of our resistance to awakening to our Holy Self as God’s Will. We are the Will of God. We are the Kingdom of Heaven.
