We do not have to fall into the illusion that we are sinful, guilty, and surrounded by darkness. That is the ego’s fear trap. In truth, we are innocent and today we declare our freedom. Rev. Deb relates the thinness of fear’s veil as the Light of Purity and Love will always shine it away. In addition, she shares a loving-kindness practice to help you remember the innocence not only of yourself but that of others.
Fear is a trick, a sleight of hand, having us believe other than what truth is. Lately, Rev. Paul has been watching the TV show, Penn & Teller: Fool Us. He loves magic and magicians, and he was an amateur magician in his youth. Recently, we bought tickets for The Illusionists Broadway show coming to Madison at Thanksgiving. Front row seats even, and he is so very excited. But we needn’t have a front row seat to the ego and its trickery now do we? As exciting as the illusion is around us, it is still illusion. The ego pulls the wool over our eyes in an attempt to deceive us that this world is what we ultimately desire. Yet the ego’s world is full of fear.
God’s world is something different altogether. It doesn’t need smoke and mirrors to attract our attention. What is True Light needs no introduction or bait. We only need to believe and accept that we are the Sons of God. What He created can never be less than miraculous with His Love.
With all this lately of TV shows and movies about various superheroes, this is where we learn of our True Identity. We walk around this world not knowing the greatness we are, until the moment we started to awaken. Now we can tear off the superficial “clothes” of the ego, and let our “S” shine though, the Son, the glorious Child of God we are.
Superheroes do things that are not of this world, and we can do the same. Maybe not leap tall buildings in a single bound, but we can penetrate the illusion with our Christ Vision.
May we remember our Identity in God today, and not the secret one the ego made for us.
