2-39. All minds will return to Balance. This is Certain. The time you believe you will require to reestablish your balance is wholly in your hands.
The time that you will require to return to Balance is actually no time at all, for this process of release and redemption will unfold outside of time itself, occurring within a space of infinite possibility. But you may believe that you will require time to rebalance your mind, releasing all that the ego has offered in substitution for a Truth and a Light that is immeasurably vast and infinitely bright. The assumption that time is required to release all that appears to restrict the Light that occupies the center of your heart is based on the processes of contemplation that this world requires, a system of observation and reaction that is grounded within the assumption that time must be linear in nature. It is not. Time is not linear, for time is not at all what this world regards it as being. Time is indefinite in nature, for within Infinity, all of time is contained as well as so much more than that which could ever be captured within the concept of time itself. To return to Balance is but to return to yourself, allowing your original mind of Peace to arise and be remembered in place of the mind of conflict that is the foundational premise upon which the madness of the ego builds its castles of sand. To the ego, conflict is necessary for there is much that the ego perceives as being real that is not at all actually Real at all. The ego sees only endless separation, an isolation from all else that lives and a presumption of danger where there is none. What danger could there be in a world in which all that lives is but One Life everlasting? What madness can be accepted as truth when it attempts to substitute that which is forever True for that which is the barest of illusions, a proposition with no basis in reality and an assumption with no foundation? The ego knows nothing of Truth, for the ego is not real. The ego is a formulation of your body, a judgment that your body must constitute the the summary whole of all that you are and as such, that which threatens your body must also threaten all that you are, for the ego is nothing other than a projection based on physical existence that cannot be justified when it is regarded from a higher perspective. The ego presents lies as truth and illusions as reality. You may accept these mad utterances of the ego as being requisite components of your mind for as long as you might wish, for your Free Will allows you to elect whatever it is you wish to believe as being real for just as long as you desire it to be so, and you will act and think in a manner that reflects that which you believe to be the nature of reality for as long as you desire to remain within that framework of consciousness. But there is more than this, Child of God, so much more than simply the banality of material existence at its necessary temporariness, fated to dissolve into its component constituents when its time has passed, as must all that is material will disintegrate for it can do nothing more than be rent asunder when its utility has faded. What is more, what is higher and what is greater than the littleness and minute isolation and desperate loneliness that a belief in separation will bring is the connection that you share to all else that lives, a connection that can be ignored but that cannot be broken no matter how much you might wish to turn away from it and see another world, a world that you have created in the ego’s image instead of God’s Truth. This Truth is that you are One. You are not separated, damned to live in a little prison of flesh, to grow elderly and weary and exhausted and then to perish, loosing everything to the apparent darkness of death. This is not your fate, for there is no fate in this world, there is only the opportunity in each and every moment to release all that appears to hide the Light of God’s Love from your awareness. To return to Balance is but to accept that which is True in place of all that you have created for yourself that has had no justification or reasonable basis, regardless of what the ego has been so desperately attempting to tell you is the true nature of your existence. There are no barriers between the center of your heart and the Heart of God. There are no walls that exist that hide the Light of Love from you. It has always been, and it will always be, but it is your choice to deny that which is eternally Real, accepting in its place that which could never be real. Why do you do this? Why do you attempt to diminish yourself to virtual nothingness when you are All, not a fragile being of flesh but an Infinite Spirit of Love now occupying a vessel that is an appropriate container for your Soul but one that must, by its nature, be forever temporary? There is no need to spend endless amounts of time contemplating this inquiry, for release from illusions will not be found in the consideration of the reasons for your self-enforced imprisonment - release will be found when release is accepted by you, for you. You have this choice. You have always had this choice. You will always have this choice in all of the fragmentary moments to come. You can return to Balance when you wish, but you will not do so if you believe that this transition is a change at all. It is not an alteration of your consciousness or a transcendent transformation into some new form that you do not already occupy. The present moment contains all of Infinity. There is nothing that is Infinite that is not accessible in each and every present moment. There are no barriers between yourself and all that you actually are in Truth. You are not required to become something that you are not. You are merely asked to release the illusions that have for so long crowded into your mind, attempting to obliterate the Truth of Love and replacing it with fear and darkness. This darkness is of your own creation, and so you alone must be the one to release what you have created so that the Infinite Light of Creation can be found again, dwelling at the center of your heart, waiting for you to let go of that which you believe has the power to bind you in darkness to a lie that has no basis whatsoever. Your return to Balance and to Peace is Certain, for it is the Will of God that you release all that you have accepted in the place of your Gifts. Your Gifts are Eternal and they are readily accessible to you once you are willing to admit that you are infinitely worthy of that which God has already Given. Do not accept what the ego offers as truth, for it knows nothing of Reality because the ego is not Real at all. Accept instead that there are no barriers, no restrictions and no limitations that could ever prevent you from finding all that you will ever have need of within the perfect center of your heart. Your return to Balance is of your volition only - no other mind can or will restrict a process that must be completed, for just as God has asked it of you, so shall you complete it, when you are ready to accept the mantle of Light that is the Gift of being an infinitely blessed and eternally Loved Child of God. Accept your True Nature so that you can return to Balance and know that when you do, the Infinite Love of God will be your Love, too.
