Subject: Orinda, there have been references to reflection and mirror that have stood out . . .


. . . as I listened to gatherings these last few nights. I wanted to share a few. NOTE: I added the bold highlighting to those word references.

 Raj Excerpt - Nov 23, 2003

Everything you see is capable of responding to and reflecting the Mind of God without being bound by anything other than the Father’s Intent. And that is why as you abandon a sick sense of yourself, a diseased sense of yourself, there can be instantaneous reconfiguration. 


Raj excerpt - May 4, 2008

Now, I gave you a practice for the coming two weeks. And this practice is very practical because it truly provides you with the opportunity to experience the Atonement in the only place where it can be experienced, which is in your Mind and is constituted of your shifting your valuing from your thinking to listening to the Voice for Truth, listening for God’s Mind, listening for what God Knows. And letting that experience provide you with the real definitions of you—the holy one that you really Are and the holy one that your brothers truly Are. 

It’s going to happen as you shift from second gear to first gear. And when you do that shift, everything—the world, the universe, everything—is going to reflect God. Everything will be recognizably God Being All. Your brother will be transformed. You will be transformed. Everything will be transformed. That’s what you say you want. And that truly is what you want. But you’re going to have to use a little self-discipline. 


Raj excerpt - July 27, 2008

In this world you can become a spotless mirror, in which the holiness of your Creator shines forth from you to all around you. You can reflect Heaven HERE. 

Well, what did we say last week that Heaven was? 

Heaven is awareness. Awareness that is not distorted by or colored by thoughts occupying awareness that do not reflect reality, that do not reflect the truth, that do not reflect your function. 

So, you can reflect Heaven here. You can be that undistorted pure conscious awareness of reality as it is right here, not in the sweet-bye-and-bye after you die. Your function has always been to be conscious of the truth here, now, as you put it, in this lifetime. This lifetime is just eternity imagined as something having a beginning and an end—a birth and an up-coming death. 

But, as you make this shift of consciousness, called Awakening, you’ll find that the experience of birth will disappear. It will not be a part of your memory. And an impending death will also disappear. And you will remember wholeness. You will remember eternity, if I may put it that way. And you will not labor under a false impression that there are beginnings and endings. 

You can reflect Heaven HERE. Yet no reflections of the images of other gods must dim the mirror that would hold God’s reflection in it. 

Well . . . the reflections of the images of other gods . . . [chuckling] it’s a nice poetic way of speaking about your thoughts. All the thinking that you have done, all of the imaginative intellectual creativity you have gone through which you have placed upon the altar in you, which you have filled your awareness with and preoccupied yourself with. 

Yet no reflections of the images of other gods must dim the mirror that would hold God’s reflection in it. Earth can reflect Heaven or hell; God or the ego. 

There it is right there. Heaven is God. Heaven is equated with God. Heaven is equated with first gear—you in your right Mind. 

Hell is the equivalent of second gear, where you have engaged in this self- assertion that brought you into existence as a concept you had of yourself that you insisted in bringing into manifestation—into recognizability. That’s all there is to Hell. All there is to Hell is your mind cluttered up with your thinking—cluttered up with your preoccupation with what you have created out of pure imagination. Of course, all you could create through the use of your mind would have been a distorted perception of that which already existed of Creation Itself. 

So Hell is nothing more than your active misperception of Heaven right here and right now. It’s not another place, it’s not a place you go to. It is you insisting on defining Creation, Heaven, in your own terms and getting others to join you in agreement as to what those terms mean. 

So Hell is an ongoing constantly re-energized misperception of the Kingdom of Heaven. You could say, it’s a distortion of that pure awareness which is your mind, which is God’s Mind Presencing Itself right there where you are, as all there is of you. That’s Heaven. 

You need but leave the mirror clean and clear of all the images of hidden darkness you have drawn upon it. 


Raj except - July 27, 2008

You need but leave the mirror clean and clear of all the images of hidden darkness you have drawn upon it. 

God will shine upon it of Himself. 

God will shine upon the mirror. God is shining upon the mirror even though your thoughts are obscuring what’s shining on the mirror truly. God is shining upon the mirror

God will shine upon it of Himself. Only the clear reflection of Himself can BE perceived upon it. 

You see. Your hidden darknesses can’t really be perceived on it. 

Reflections are seen in light. 


You see, God’s thoughts reflected on the mirror are themselves the Real thing. They’re not concepts of the Real thing applied to the Real thing after the fact. 

The reflection of God NEEDS no interpretation. It is CLEAR. Clean but the mirror, . . 

. . . again, by ceasing thinking. 

Clean but the mirror, and the message which shines forth from what the mirror holds out for everyone to see no-one can FAIL to understand. 

This is your function. Your function is to value the silence, to value the absence of your thinking enough to abandon the thinking so that you might find yourself in the silence, which could be equated with the clean mirror in which that which is Real is being reflected and because there is now nothing to obscure what is Real that is being reflected, you can see it. What is Real becomes your experience. And when what is Real becomes your experience, That becomes what you express. That becomes what you communicate: The message on the mirror . . . 

It is the message that the Holy Spirit is holding to the mirror that is in him. 

. . . the one who is looking for truth. 

He recognizes it . . . 

In darkness they are obscure, and their meaning seems to lie only in shifting interpretations, rather than in themselves. 

. . . the seeker . . . 

. . . because he has been taught his NEED for it, . . 

. . . I am teaching you of your need for it. Your suffering experience is teaching you the need for it. You will recognize it because you have been taught your need for it . . . 

. . . but knows not where to look to find it. 

What it actually says is . . . 

He recognizes it because he has been taught his NEED for it but knows not where to look to find it. Let him then see It in YOU and SHARE it with you. 

Let the Holy Spirit . . . 

. . . see it in YOU and SHARE it with you. 

. . . because that is the Holy Spirit’s function, and that is the way you come back into your right Mind. But again, in order to experience this influx of revelation you must de-value your capacity . . . your so-called capacity to think. And you must abandon practicing it. 

Could you but realize, for a single instant, the power of healing that the reflection of God, shining in you, can bring to all the world, you could not wait to make the mirror of your mind clean to receive the image of the holiness that heals the world. 


Raj excerpt Aug 10, 2003

You are mirrors of truth in which God Himself shines in perfect Light. To the ego's dark glass you need but say, “I will not look there because I KNOW these images are not true.” Then let the Holy One shine on you in peace, knowing that this and ONLY this must be. His Mind shone on you in your creation . . .   

God’s Mind shone on you in your creation.

. . . and brought YOUR mind into being.  

Not as a separate thing.

His Mind still shines on you, and must shine THROUGH you.
