1-60. No mind can ever be shackled by another. But your beliefs can serve as unbreakable chains, until you are ready to release them.
There is a belief in this world that is horribly restricting to your eternal Free Will and so utterly corrupt in its falsity that is appears to capable of nearly annihilating any possibility of feeling Joy. This concept is effectively summarized in the proposition contained within the phrase “you made me mad.” Indeed if you were to take this concept to its logical conclusion you might be driven mad from your attempts to give away your Free Will to the whims and dictates of others. It is quite unfortunate that this concept is taught to children and engrained in their consciousness from such fragile ages that some may never be able to lay it to rest as the lie that it is. No one has the power to make you mad. There is no anger switch in your mind that they can access. They do not have this power. Do not attempt to give it to them. In doing so, you only trade Truth for illusion and you trap yourself in a vicious cycle of impossibilities until such a time as you are ready to set down this childish notion. Bodies can, and indeed have been, shackled and chained throughout much of history. This bondage has forever been one solely of the flesh. All of the mental slavery that arose from this process was solely accepted on the part of those so captured. It was a choice that they made, a choice to believe that their stolen freedoms in some way had the power to restrict their minds and to prevent them from being forever free to choose how they wished to react to the conditions they were forced to endure. A similar captivity can occur in the mind of any Child of God who attempts to believe that the opinions of others must require any reaction. Other people are free to think as they believe is best for them. You are forever welcome to enjoy the same freedom. Nothing in this universe can stop your mind from believing anything that you wish to believe to be true for you. You forever can choose how you react to what any other person says or does, no matter how hurtful or horrendous their choices may be to you at the time you first encounter them. Great manipulations have been effected using a deep understanding of the reactive nature of so many people. Many have supplicated themselves to the wills of others, attempting to elicit the perceived rewards of approval from those they believe have some bizarre and illusionary form of power over them. This will not do. For you are forever Free, just as you were Created. For you, as a Perfect and utterly unique Child of God, to believe that you are in need of any particular set of behaviors or reactions from another person, for any reason whatsoever, is not at all true. You do not. You cannot force another person to do anything that they are unwilling to do or believe. Neither are they able to cause the arising of any set of behaviors or actions from you unless you are willing to believe that they can actually accomplish this impossible feat. This cannot be, for you are forever Free and utterly capable of deciding for yourself what it is you wish to think and feel, without limitation and without restriction. Do not try to give away your Free Will. It cannot be accepted by any other person. They cannot take away your dignity, self-respect, kindness or love for any reason, ever. It is not possible. To believe that it can be done is to attempt to conceive of a world in which that which God has Created could be in any way imperfect. From the perspective of all that is forever True, this is clearly an insane belief that has no merit and that is utterly devoid of all value. It has no basis in Truth. It is not real. There is only you, the gorgeous and Perfect Child of God that you have always been. And there are all of the other Children of God, some Awakening to the Truth of Love and some still sleeping so soundly that no glimmer of the Light of Love can possibly pierce the veil they have chosen to pull over their own eyes. Allow them to sleep. Await their Awakening when it becomes time for them, each at the exact moment when they are ready to Awaken from the dream of being separated from God. For in the Glory of their emergence from the suffocating cocoon of their beliefs in isolation and spiritual desolation, you will witness the Glory of all Creation played out in the Miracle of another Child of God Arising to the Truth that they are forever Loved. Perhaps your time is drawing closer. Perhaps there have been glimmers, growing ever stronger as you have progressed closer and closer to Truth. Perhaps even now you feel something that you cannot explain, a certainty in a Truth that must be Experienced to be known in all of its Infinite Beauty. Remember that all that you have elected to believe as being true for you will continue to bind you to that which is forever an illusion until the exact moment that you are ready to give all that restricts you back to God. In giving to God all that you have chosen to believe in any way prevented you from knowing or accomplishing anything at all, God will gently wash away all that was forever untrue, revealing the Perfect Truth that has forever underlain all of the illusions that this world has attempted to teach you. That which you believe will bind you, now and forever. But that which you release will also free you in equal measure. Seek to be free of all that was forever untrue, when seen from the Perfect perspective of all that is forever Real, which is only Love. Only you can employ your Free Will to make new choices, learning from all that has come to pass to assist with developing your powers of discernment, giving you the clear vision to separate Truth from illusion. God desires nothing, for all that God has Created is already Perfect. All that you have laid upon the Perfection of Creation can in no way alter its Glorious Beauty. You are an integral part of a Whole, a continuum of Love that has no beginning and no end, forever Perfect and utterly Complete, needing nothing for it is already everything and so much more. Release all that restricts you from seeing the Light of Love and knowing it as the Home of your heart. Seek no longer to believe that it might be possible that there could be any part of your Creation that was imperfect. Accept that you are always just as you were Created. Give up your dreams of separation, loss, pain, fear and regret. Accept instead that you are already Safe. Allow yourself to Experience the Light of Love and know that within its Perfect Light all will be seen just as it has always been and will always be. Nothing more than Love will you ever need to serve as your Guide to find your way Home through the darkness of the ego and into the Light that will show you that because you are Loved, what you are in Truth, is Love Itself.
