Our Poor Little...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Watercolor and pencil by: Mary Pohlmann

 

When our minds don't mine

We have a monkey mind

And a monkey mind

Is a mindless mind.

 

And a mindless mind

Is a mind, that never mines,

As its swings from here

To there, then everywhere.

 

As, it then pounces

on this thought!

 

Then jumps on

that though!!

 

Then getting so upset

with those thoughts!!!

 

That it starts

JUMPING ALL AROUND!!!!

 

Yes, our poor little monkey mind

gets so upset,

with its own little world...

 

When our minds

do not mine.

 

Gentleness

 


 

Here's a good video on meditation and our Monkey Mind.

Dear friends,

There is a need which is providing only one option, and that is to ask for help in meeting it. Contributions have dropped off significantly in recent months, to the point where Paul has been unable to draw a salary for over a month in order to pay bills which are barely keeping things functioning. At the same time, he is having to find the means to cover the expenses of preparing both homes to be sold in order to pay off a lien and then find new quarters in which to live and carry on the work. 

This is that request, and it is extended with gratitude for any help that can be given. Thank you for the part you play in Brotherhood! It is the threshold of Atonement!

With love,

Rajpur

____________________________________


THE LEADING EDGE OF FANTASTIC!

 

~~A Conversation with Raj~~

_____________________________________



 

PAUL: Good morning, Raj.

 

RAJ: Yes, Paul. Good morning.

 

PAUL: I need you to talk to me about my letting you respond to everything; about giving voice to the Voice for Truth, and never again for me — or a "self" I think I have or am. I don't know if I will allow myself to hear it, but may we try.

 

RAJ: Let's do it!

 

PAUL: Okay.

 

RAJ: First of all, just try to remember that it is the needed response.

Like the game "Mother May I?" you have to remember not to slip, and speak without asking . . . except in this case you are asking “what to say.” The purpose of doing so is not to discount you, but to remind you that there is another way to look at everything . . . different from the way you have been conditioned to look at it.

 

It is unnecessary to interpret this shift of emphasis as a judgment on you, because what you are shifting it from is just a negative bias applied to something entirely neutral. It is as ridiculous as saying, "Only a fool, idiot, or ignoramus would still be using an iPhone 11!" You see?

On the contrary, you watch for every leak, every newly uncovered detail you can find regarding an upcoming upgrade!  And you do it with great anticipation. Now, you tell me! Do you do it because you don't want to be a fool, or because you want to be on the leading edge of fantastic?

 

So . . . without the bias, another way of looking at it would be, "Give voice only to the Voice for Truth because you want to stand constantly on the leading edge of the miraculous . . . of "behold, I make all things new!"

 

Now, this does not mean that you will suddenly give voice to the Voice for Truth fluently in all settings on all subjects—and this means those you don’t consider to be spiritual—any more than you spoke fluidly while giving voice to my words in the very beginning on things which were spiritual.

The point, however, is for you to be aware of 1) my presence with you, and 2) your attention with me . . . whether you are awkward or not. As in all things, practice begets trust, together with diminishing self-consciousness (self-doubt). 

 

The miracle lies in this: It is the conscious joining, the conscious partnership—even if it is in silence—which constitutes the fullness of the holy instant, and therefore the experience of Wholeness in form. It is the "partnership" which is the avenue of manifestation for "behold, I make all things new," and not “what” is known as a result.

 

I did not not say, "Ye shall know the truth, and what you know shall make you free." No. I said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the Truth shall make you free." When you know the TRUTH, it is because Truth has been revealed, and it has been revealed because you’ve set your will aside and brought your attention to me, or the Holy Spirit.

It is in the presence of revealed Truth that sudden shifts of perception occur because in the holy instant nothing stands in Its way. But when YOU know the Truth, you are not in the holy instant and you are in the way. This is very important because it makes it very clear where your attention needs to be given.

 

Now you know that it is your Function to experience Revelation.

Now you know that Revelation is not for the special few.


Now you know that being co-creator with God is what "being conscious" means.

Now, instead of finding a better and more powerful truth to exercise against error, or greater skill at using the truth you already know—like a cross being held up in the face of a vampire to save your puny little vulnerable "self"—you know that your salvation lies in not slipping and forgetting to ask, Brother, May I . . . know what the Truth is here . . . with you?"

Now you know that your salvation lies in Brotherhood, in union, in a complete absence of independent authorship. It involves joining with the Holy Spirit, which is nothing more than your right mind.

 

I am going to end by reasserting that it doesn't matter whether you succeed in every moment of the day at hearing my response to everything. What matters is that while you're learning to hear me respond to what you would call secular things, you experience the awareness of being with me and of my being with you--because at the bottom line problems are the manifestation of looking at everything by yourself and coping with everything by yourself--and then, do it with me because you want to be on the leading edge of "fantastic"!

ACIM Study Group with Raj (excerpt)

 

p66Never believe that any lesson you have learned APART from Him means anything.

(p67Literal, absolutely literal. But where does that leave you? You get up in the morning or you sit at the table or you start to get up to go to the car to go shopping … how do you do that with innocence, without bringing along with you all your prior definitions regarding every step you go through. How … how do you … how do you do what you don’t know how to do without relying upon the past?

(p6 Well, it’s simple. It’s called the two-step; it’s the practice of the holy instant. You ask, “What do I need to know?” You be still, attentively, but ever so quietly for insight. And you keep doing this over and over until you have it and then seem to lose it. And you do it until you have it again. And you keep doing it until having it becomes easier.

(p69You have one test, as sure as God, by which to recognize if what you learned is true. If you are wholly free of fear of any kind, and if all those who meet, or even think of you, share in your perfect peace, then you can be sure that you have learned God’s lesson, and not yours.

(p70Well, that’s a pretty tall order. Sounds impossible. Why even try? Because it’s not impossible. And only in giving your attention there like any other endeavor can your capacity be revealed to you, be uncovered as You.
