There is no death. the Son of God is free.
Glory, glory hallelujah, hosanna in the highest! It feels like Christmas every single day. The re-coming in consciousness of Christ. Its Light dissipates the ego’s darkness. See It freeing every mind from dimness, Christ’s Vision bringing clarity to All.
1 Death is a thought which takes on many forms, often unrecognized. It may appear as sadness, fear, anxiety, or doubt; as anger, faithlessness, and lack of trust; concern for bodies, envy, and all forms in which the wish to be as you are not may come to tempt you. And ‘death’ is the foundation that supports the dream ongoing. Without it is gone the opportunity to exit a life that’s gotten tiresome and boring. Therefore, it is but crucial to the dream. And in its many forms it does give spice to endless dreaming.
All such thoughts are but reflections of the worshipping of death as savior and as giver of release. (From a single dream, but not from dreaming.)
2 Embodiment of fear, the host of sin, god of the guilty, and the lord of all illusions and deceptions, does the thought of death seem mighty. For it seems to hold all living things within its withered hand; all hopes and wishes in its blighting grasp. All goals perceived but in its sightless eyes. The frail, the helpless, and the sick bow down before its image, thinking it alone is real, inevitable, worthy of their trust. For it alone will surely come. What You believe in and do rely on has become Your god.
3 All things but death are seen to be unsure, too quickly lost however hard to gain, uncertain in their outcome, apt to fail the hopes they once engendered and to leave the taste of dust and ashes in their wake in place of aspirations and of dreams. And ‘death’ is so reliable. Who could not count on it to finally end the pain of so-called ‘living’? And standing behind its unholy relief is the promise of a brand-new dream! Oh what frabuous joy! Another opportunity to dream.
But death is counted on. For it will come with certain footsteps when the time has come for its arrival. It will never fail to take all life as hostage to itself. Make no mistake, it is Your petty god, for You are surer of it than You are of God Our dear Father and Our Mother.
4 Would you bow down to idols such as this? – Yes, apparently! – Here is the strength and might of God Himself perceived within an idol made of dust. Here is the opposite of God – which is Life Itself – proclaimed as lord of all creation, stronger than God’s Will for life, the endlessness of love and Heaven’s perfect, changeless constancy. Here is the Will of Father and of Son defeated finally and laid to rest beneath the headstone death has placed upon the body of the holy Son of God. Ringed about with rituals considered ‘sacred’. Consider funerals in church. The message that ‘matter’ is the arbiter of so-called ‘life’ because it can ‘die’. What utter nonsense. What bizarre beliefs; the Son of God has fallen in a spell, engendered by His love of willfulness.
5 Unholy in defeat, he has become what death would have him be. His epitaph, which death itself has written, gives no name to him, for he has passed to dust. It says but this: “Here lies a witness God is dead.” And this it writes again and still again, while all the while its worshippers agree, and kneeling down with foreheads to the ground, they whisper fearfully that it is so. Can You deny this? You know that You can’t. Your minds are full of foolishness, again, engendered by Your selfish willfulness. You have not yet been willing to improve Your mind enough to set free Your Brothers from these delusions.
Will You now commit to Join with Me, this time permanently?
6 It is impossible to worship death in any form and still select a few you would not cherish and would yet avoid while still believing in the rest. For death is total. Either all things die or else they live and cannot die. No compromise is possible. For here again we see an obvious position which we must accept if we be sane; what contradicts one thought entirely can not be true unless its opposite is proven false. This is what I ask You to commit to: the understanding that Life is All there is for God is Love. This understanding will abolish sickness, sin, and dying. By ending nightmares, it ushers in the happy dream. From there it is but one simple step to Heaven, Your Holy Freedom.
The Universe, dancing in joyous anticipation, does await Your happy, Holy Homecoming!
7 The idea of the death of God is so preposterous that even the insane have difficulty in believing it. For it implies that God was once alive and somehow perished, killed, apparently, by those who did not want him to survive. Their stronger will could triumph over His, and so eternal life gave way to death. And with the Father died the Son as well. Such are the beliefs fixating on crucifixion rather than the Resurrection. Hence the peculiar term ‘good’ Friday. What’s ‘good’ about it?
Do You see how many things in the dream that You mindlessly accept as ‘givens’?
8 Death’s worshippers may be afraid. And yet can thoughts like these be fearful? If they saw that it is only this which they believed, they would be instantly released. And you will show them this today. There is no death, and we renounce it now in every form for their salvation and our own as well. Ask Yourself this and notice Your own answer: does ‘dying’ promise You Your freedom? Does it offer You an ‘out’ when this ‘life’ seems beyond bearing? If so, this means that You have fallen prey to ego thinking.
Don’t get depressed! The remedy is simple. Just change Your mind. You’re free to do that.
God made not death. Whatever form it takes must therefore be illusion. This the stand we take today. And it is given us to look past death and see the light beyond. Say: ‘No thank You!’ to all thoughts of ‘dying’ and just walk on by. And You will see the Light right here and now.
9 Our Father, – Giver of all Good – bless our eyes today. – Help Us be aware that We are so blessed – We are Your messengers, and we would look upon the glorious reflection of Your Love which shines in everything. – We long for eyes of Love to see as You. –We live and breathe in You alone. – You are Our breath and breathing. As Paul said in the Bible, We live and move and have Our Be-ing1 not just in You, but as You. Our Real Life is You. – We are not separate from Your eternal life. There is no death, for death is not Your Will. And we abide where You have placed us, in the Life we share with You and with all living things, to be like You and part of You forever. We accept Your Thoughts as ours, and our will is one with Yours eternally. Amen. Dear God! You have not just a little, but all My willingness!
[Thank you Dear Brother]
