T. 16. VI. 1 – 4. Jesus: “The search for the special relationship is the sign that you equate yourself with the ego and not with God. For the special relationship has value only to the ego. To the ego, unless a relationship has special value it has no meaning, for the only love the ego perceives is ‘special’ love!
Yet such a relationship cannot be natural, for it is unlike the relationship of God and His Son, and all relationships that are unlike this one must be un-natural! For God created love as He would have it be, and gave it as it is. Love has no meaning except as its Creator defined it by His Will. It is impossible to define it otherwise and understand it!
Love is freedom! To look for it by placing yourself in bondage is to separate yourself from it. For the Love of God, no longer seek for union in separation, nor for freedom in bondage! As you release, so will you be released. Forget this not, or love will be unable to find you and comfort you!
If you would have the Holy Spirit’s help, there is a way in which the Holy Spirit asks your help. The holy instant is His most helpful aid in protecting you from preserving the attraction of guilt, the real lure in the special relationship. You do not recognize that guilt is the special relationship’s actual appeal, for the ego has taught you that ‘freedom’ lies in it. Yet the closer you look at the special relationship, the more apparent it becomes that it must foster guilt and therefore must imprison.
The special relationship is totally meaningless without a body! If you value it, you must also value separation and the body. And what you value you will keep in your mind. The special relationship is a device for limiting your self to a body, and for limiting your perception of others to theirs.
The Great Rays would establish the total lack of value of the special relationship, if they were seen. For in seeing them, the body would disappear because its value would be gone. And so your whole investment in seeing it would be withdrawn from it.”
