Today’s lesson is really subtle. It’s an important lesson. It’s also a lesson that the ego can’t understand. Let’s look at it carefully and slowly so it can be understood and digested beyond the ego mind.
“I am one Self, united with my Creator.” If this is true (and it is true), can I do anything apart from my Creator? In order to do something apart from my Creator, we’d have to be two, wouldn’t we?
This means that if I forget the lesson for a few hours, or if I remember but I have too much resistance to give 5 minutes to practice, that I am forgetting or resisting WITH my creator.
Yep. This may not seem right to you, but if it doesn’t seem right it is because you are still thinking of your creator as something other than you.
Remember The Code. The entire world experience, including every thought that comes into your mind and every feeling that comes into your body, comes from our oneness and how we cast attention. Our oneness is the creator. So if we are distracted from remembering the lesson, where do those distractions come from? My creator of which I am a part. And if I have too much resistance to practice, where does that resistance come from? My creator of which I am a part.
When the ego mind thinks it understands this, it thinks, “Then I don’t even need to try because everything is God.” That’s not a right understanding. Again, remember The Code. The code that we create has different vibrational levels in it. When we choose the highest level available to us, we raise higher in vibration.
Look carefully at today’s lesson again. Look at paragraphs 8, 9 & 10. Can you see how those paragraphs are teaching you to make higher choices so you raise yourself in vibration?
~ If you forget, forgive yourself.
~ Overlook your lapses/failures; don’t give them any power.
~ Try again to remember with regularity.
All three of these choices will pull you up in vibration. Their opposites would keep you down.
Paragraph 8 says, “The Holy Spirit is not delayed in His teaching by your mistakes. He can be held back only by your unwillingness to let them go.” Translation: Choosing to believe a lower vibration thought/feeling cannot keep you down; only continuing to believe lower vibration thoughts/feelings can keep you down.
So when you make a mistake, correct it as soon as possible by choosing the highest vibrational thought available to you now. That is, forgive yourself, don’t give power to ideas like failure or guilt, and try again.
Also, look at paragraph 14. We are the creator, which means as you choose to raise yourself in vibration, you also raise the world in vibration, and “each time you do so, someone hears the voice of hope, the stirring of the truth within his mind, the gentle rustling of wings of peace.”
“I am one Self, united with my Creator.” With this knowledge, I choose the highest vibration available to me today.
