T. 16. VII. 8 – 12. Jesus: “What God has given you is truly given, and will be truly received. For God’s gifts have no reality apart from your receiving them. Your receiving completes His giving. You will receive because it is His Will to give. He gave the holy instant to be given you, and it is impossible that you receive it not, if but because He gave it!
When He willed that His Son be free, His Son was free! In the holy instant is His reminder to you that His Son will always be exactly as he was created. And everything the Holy Spirit teaches is to remind you that you have received what God has given you. There is nothing you can hold against reality that would prevent it from being what it is!
All that must be forgiven are the illusions you have held against your brothers! Their reality has no past, and only illusions need be forgiven. God holds nothing against anyone, for He is incapable of illusions of any kind. Release your brothers from the slavery of their illusions by forgiving them for the illusions you perceive in them!
Thus will you learn that you have been forgiven, for it is you who have offered them illusions of what they are. In the holy instant, this is done for you who still believe that you reside in time, to bring you to the true condition necessary for remembering the reality of Heaven.
Remember it is always between truth and illusion that you choose; between the real Atonement that would heal, and the ego’s ‘false atonement’ of attack, that would instead ‘destroy reality!’ The power of God and all His Love, without limit, will support you as you seek only your place in the plan of Atonement arising from His Love.
Be an ally of God, and not of the ego, in seeking how Atonement can come to you! His Help suffices, for His Messenger understands how to restore the Kingdom to you, if you will place all you would invest in salvation in your relationship with Him.
Seek and find His message in the holy instant, where all illusions are forgiven! From there the miracle extends to bless everyone and to resolve all problems, be they perceived as great or small, possible or impossible. There is nothing that will not give place to Him and to His Majesty. To join in close relationship with Him is to accept the reality still present in your relationships, and through their reality, to give over all illusions to be replaced with the reality of your relationship with God. Praise be to your relationship with Him and to no other. The truth lies there and nowhere else. You choose this, or nothing!
‘Forgive us our illusions, Father, and help us to accept our true relationship with You, in which there are no illusions, and where none can ever enter. Our holiness is Yours. What can there be in us that needs forgiveness when Yours is perfect? The sleep of forgetfulness is only the unwillingness to remember Your forgiveness and Your Love. Let us not wander into temptation, for the temptation of the Son of God is not Your Will. And let us receive only what You have given, and accept but this into the minds which You created and which You love.’ – Amen.”
