What is the Christ?
Yesterday we saw that seeing Christ-consciousness in the world is “the symbol that the time for learning now is over, and the goal of the Atonement has been reached at last.”
Our special theme continues by saying, “So therefore let us seek to find Christ’s face and look on nothing else.”
This sets the goal. Just as the instructions for Loving Consciousness Meditation ask us to love our consciousness and ignore everything else, our special theme asks us to seek Christ-consciousness in everything and look on nothing else.
That doesn’t mean that we should repress anything else that we might see. It means that we should practice the Loving All Method with it.
This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take action in the world if we would normally take action. It means we should practice the Loving All Method with anything we perceive, anything we experience, and any action we take.
Let’s review some of the instructions from the Loving All Method:
Love every thought you have exactly the way it is.
Love all your emotions exactly the way they are.
Love your body exactly the way it is.
Love the objects you see exactly the way they are.
Love the people you see exactly the way they are.
Love your actions exactly the way they are.
Love everything you feel, think, say or do exactly the way it is.
Love everything you see, taste, touch, smell or hear exactly the way it is.
Love everything other people do, feel, think or say exactly the way it is.
Love everything that happens exactly the way it is.
Love every activity exactly the way it is.
Love every experience exactly the way it is.
Love everything exactly the way it is.
If you don’t understand how to practice the above instructions using the word “love”, you can substitute the words “emotionally allow” for the word “love” in the above instructions.
After practicing everyday for one month using the words “emotionally allow”, you can substitute the words “emotionally accept” for the word “love” in the above instructions.
After practicing everyday for one month using the words “emotionally accept”, you can go back to the original wording of the instructions, just as they are, using the word “love”, and then continue using the word love from then on.
No changes in your external behavior are required.
For example: if a vase falls and you would normally try and catch it, you will also try and catch the vase while you are practicing the Loving All Method.
You do not allow the vase to fall because you are loving the falling.
If someone were to try to punch you in the face and if you would normally duck, you will also duck while practicing the Loving All Method.
You also love the fact that you are ducking to avoid being punched.
The Loving All Method is about emotional acceptance.
The Loving All Method is not about changing your actions.
If someone says something mean to you and if you feel bad emotionally because of what they said, then love your negative emotion and love yourself for having the negative emotion.
Love as much as you can love.
What you wish to change, you will still change.
The Loving All Method is developing a new feeling habit.
The Loving All Method is developing the habit of feeling love towards everything you perceive.
What limits can I lay upon God’s Son?
“God’s Son” is a synonym for consciousness.
Our lesson says, “Today let me give honor to Your Son, for thus alone I find the way to You.”
The way to remember our source is to remember our truth. And the way to remember our truth is to continually focus on awareness (consciousness).
It is as Nisargadatta Maharaj said:
How do you go about finding anything? By keeping your mind and heart in it. Interest there must be, and steady remembrance. To remember what needs to be remembered is the secret of success. You come to it through earnestness.
