2-33. All that you thought was wrong was but a shadow of an error. You are already perfect, just as you were Created. Be as you are and know Peace.
To the ego, all that is real is only error for the ego itself is an error of perception, a mad desire to make real that which is eternally illusionary. As such, it should not be at all surprising that the ego will present to you an endless litany of reasons why you should believe that you are in some way imperfect. But this is not True. There is no part of that which you are, in Truth, that is imperfect or possessed of error in any form. But this is truly the antithesis of the ego and so it is rejected wholeheartedly by the ego time and time again, forever relegated to the realms of your mind in which the Memory of God still remains, utterly unacceptable to the ego for in the acceptance of this simplest of Truths is found the eternal unwinding of the ego’s madness in favor of the sanity of the Light of God. The ego stands as the original error, the first and most egregious assumption upon which an entire world of beliefs were founded, all standing upon a base so fragile and slippery that they might as well be balanced on the sharp end of a pin for all of the stability and certainty that they contain. The ego stands as a blockade against the Return of the Light of Truth, attempting to cavort with you endlessly, presenting the baubles of illusion that it believes will entice you to turn away from the pure Light and to instead accept the ego’s empty offerings as what you might truly wish to elect as being both desirable and real. Do not accept this bargain, for as real as it may seem, it is as empty as the night in which the ego lives, an endless void of nothingness in which all that is Real is forgotten in favor of that which is eternally temporary. The ego is a masterful liar, forever devoted to presenting to you that which it believes you wish to hear so that its loud voice might drown out the subtle but unmistakable Voice of God, a Voice which forever Sings to you, calling you gently Home to the Light of Love. The ego knows that it will inevitably dissolve and be reduced to the nothingness from whence it arose when your body perishes, for the ego is of the physical form and God is of all that is Eternal. Accept that all that is physical has utility but no everlasting value, for all that is of this world serves purposes that will end when your Soul alights from the physical frame that it occupies, returning to the formlessness of God and finding its eternal Salvation in the Grace of God. You are here, in this world, because you dreamed of a world in which it might be possible to forget God. This statement is ultimate. There can be no equivalence to anything that this world can offer that even begins to approach the Truth that is contained in this simple admonishment of why you find yourself here, in a world that can at times appear to be hopelessly confusing and fraught with difficult at every turn. To forget is not to lose, for all that is of God is of you as well. You can remember the Truth of Love at any moment. There is no difficulty involved in this process of releasing all that is illusionary in favor of that which is Eternal, for the Gifts of God are ever present in your heart and they are eternally accessible to you just as soon as you are willing to set down the childish playthings of the ego in favor of the Light of Love that is your Home, now and forever. But this is not to imply that the vast majority of Souls now occupying bodies and roaming the surface of this world will find this journey Home to be exceedingly easy or simple. This is because the ego will battle with you at every turn, attempting in any manner it can conceive to turn your awareness away from God and back to the illusionary reality that the ego uses to blind you to the simplicity and beauty of Love. The shadows that play out when the ego attempts to stand between you and the Infinitely Perfect Light of Love are not real. But they will be real to you to the exact extent that you are willing to invest your personal energy and attention in their illusionary presentation. You choose this, even when you are either unwilling or when you truly believe you are unable to look away from the darkness of the ego. Because you have chosen this presentation of shadows as an acceptable substitute for the Light of God, you will see exactly what you expect to see – a world of pain, suffering, loss and death. But this is not the Real world. It is merely the playground of the ego, forever attempting to distract you so that you will not be willing to release all that the ego offers. Because you can always choose, you have in every moment an opportunity to choose again, giving up that which the ego offers and accepting instead the Light of God. This Light is forever available. It is found in acceptance. Acceptance of your own True Nature will catapult your mind to ever higher levels of awareness, washing away the darkness of the ego’s madness and replacing it with the Light of Love that has forever dwelled, quiet and Safe, at the center of your heart. Your Path back to God and back to Truth runs through your heart. It is not found in this world, for this world is not eternal… but Love is. You were Created. When you were Created, although the use of the word “when” is not wholly appropriate as your Creation occurred outside of time as it is understood in this world, you were Created without any flaw or imperfection whatsoever. You have always been, are now, and will always be Perfect, just as you were Created, for God is Perfect and all that God Creates is Perfect, too. This Perfection cannot be altered by the insanity of the ego, no matter how much you have been driven down in the pit of despair and illusion that a blind acceptance of the ego will cause in your mind. You need only be as you have always been and the ego’s shadows will gently fade away, slowly at first perhaps, but with ever increasing swiftness as you become more and more willing to first See and then accept the infinite Ocean of Peace that you will encounter when you release ever deeper levels of the ego’s delusions. To be just as you have always been is an effortless process of release, an acceptance of the Peace that is the center of your heart and a gentle transition from a perspective of limitations and isolation, back towards the eternal connection that you share with God. God has not abandoned you, no matter what you may believe. This has never happened and it will never happen. But your choice to Return to Love is wholly in your hands, for your Free Will cannot be countered by any force, energy or desire on the part of any other Child of God. You must walk this Path back to God alone, in a sense, for while others may walk with you and rejoice in the changes that they will be unable to deny as you progress farther back towards the Light of Love that is the Home of your Soul, they cannot carry you down your Path. Acceptance, above all other choices, will hurry you along on your journey, causing all of the walls of the ego to fall before the Light that forever stands behind them, lighting your way with eternal clarity. To find Peace while still existing within the framework of this world, be as you are. You do not need to do anything, change anything or learn anything new, for all of the knowledge of the Certainty of God is already within you. You need only accept that you can find your way Home and the Gates of Heaven will open again for you, releasing the brilliantly Perfect Light of Love. This Light will be all that you will ever need to know that you have found the way to Return to God, forever Safe in the Light of Love and now freed of all that you held against God, and by intractable extension, against the Perfection of your own heart in equal measure.
