Ch. 12. VIII. 1 – 4. Jesus: “Do you really believe that you can kill the Son of God? The Father has hidden His Son safely within Himself, and kept him far away from your destructive ego thoughts, but you know neither the Father nor the Son because of them.
With your ego’s judgments you attack the real world every day, every hour and minute, and yet you seem surprised that you cannot see it! If you seek love merely in order have something to attack, you will never find real love. For if love is is experienced in sharing, and it surely is, how can you find it except through sharing? Offer it for the sharing and it will come to you, because it is drawn to itself. But offer attack in any way, and love will remain hidden, for it can live only in peace.
God’s Son is as safe as his Father, for the Son knows his Father’s protection and cannot fear. His Father’s Love holds him in perfect peace, and needing nothing, he asks for nothing. Yet he is far from you whose Self he is, for you chose to attack him and he disappeared from your sight into his Father. He did not change, but you did. For a split mind and all its works were not created by the Father, and could not live in the knowledge of Him.
When you made visible what is not true, what is true became invisible to you. Yet it cannot be invisible in and of itself, for the Holy Spirit sees it with perfect clarity. It is invisible to you because you are looking for something else. Yet it is no more up to you to decide what is visible and what is invisible, than it is up to you to decide what reality is. What can be seen truly is what the Holy Spirit sees.
The definition of reality is God’s, not yours. He created it, and He knows what it is. You who knew have forgotten, and unless He had given you a Way to remember you would have condemned yourself to oblivion.
Because of your Father’s Love you can never really forget Him, for no one can forget what God Himself placed in his memory. You can deny it, but you cannot lose it or destroy it. A Voice will answer every question you ask, and a new vision will correct the perception of everything you see.”
