2-48. Release your illusions. Shadows were never where you were intended to dwell. Return to Love. Endless Creativity is your Home. Return... so you can fly.
Illusions serve only to hide the Light of Love from your perfect heart. They have no utility, value, or ability to provide you with that which you truly desire. But they can appear to have great value when they are regarded from the perspective of the ego. This is because the ego is itself an illusion. Because the ego is forever an illusion that you have created, your ego will always desire to hide your true Light from you, offering you instead a world of darkness and fear in the place of the Light that is your Home. Why would you want this? You do not, in Truth, desire this destiny that can lead only to ever greater levels of dissolution, despair and finally, inevitable death. Death will come for you, but it will not be what you think it is. Death comes for the ego, for the ego must perish when your body fails, for the ego has no life and it cannot continue beyond all that is mortal. However you are so much more than this that to fear the dissolving of your ego and the release from illusions that much accompany a transition back to formlessness is a pitiful exercise in accepting that which is unreal in the place of that which is Eternal. The release of your illusions will not hobble you, removing from you anything that you actually might have any use for whatsoever. You will give up nothing to gain Everything and so much more than even that concept can possibly contain that to attempt to conceptualize of all that actually Is becomes a meaningless quest, a desire to limit that which is Infinite into a form that your mind can easily absorb. That which is Infinite is to be Experienced, not reduced to abstractions. The shadows of the ego’s madness and its endless grief, a grief generated by the simple fact that the ego does know that it is nothing even if you are not yet ready to accept this simple Truth, does not have to be and should not be accepted as being your place within this world. You are so much more than the darkness of the ego, and the ego knows this with unbreakable certainty. As such, the ego rails against that which it knows must be its inevitable demise, for the ego desires to continue even though the ego knows that it is forever doomed to find only complete disintegration. You were not Created to suffer, Child of God. You were Created to Live. Live, now, as God has Willed you to Live, for there is no better time that this exact present moment for you to arise again as the Perfect Child of God you have always been, freed from all that the ego attempted to cast over the Love that God forever holds for you. God did not Create the ego, for the ego is not real and it is, truly and eternally, nothing at all. All that God Creates is Good in every possible sense that that word can possibly contain. Why in all of the great vastness of the material universe would you ever propose that God would Create an illusion that can only bring pain, desolation and misery to all who hold it out as having any value for them at all? God did not Create this darkness. You accepted it as you own and it is solely within your own power to choose another Path, to elect to release all that has burdened you with illusions and to put them down now, a darkness once accepted as intractably permanent yet now recognized as truly being nothing at all. There is nothing that the ego can ever offer to you that you might have any use of in any form or for any reason. The ego is an illusion generated by a belief that the physical world must be the sum total of all that is Real. It is not. There is much more to all that Lives beyond the forms that they occupy within the limits and boundaries of this world. Look not to the physicality of anything that appears to be wholly real to you and presume that what your body’s eyes report to you as being real must represent in any meaningful manner all that there is to know of that point of Light that you call another life. To do so is to ignore the enormous bulk of each life’s existence, accepting but the barest tip of their icebergs of totality that rise above the ocean of material reality for the great mass of depth that exists within levels of Truth that are not directly perceivable by the body’s senses. There is much more to Life than that what is represented merely in physical form. You are much more than just a body. You are much more than what others may or may not perceive of you. You do not need to know all that there is to know of yourself to become free of all that imprisons you in a barricade of flesh, seemingly preventing you from forming connections to others than could ever possibly transcend the limits of all that is material. Rise now, Child of God, freed of the illusions that the ego will forever hold out as being desirable, releasing all that you previously feared as being at all limiting, so that you might Remember your Home within the Heart of God. Shadows are not your home. Love, Truth and Light are you Home and they are forever accessible to you. It has always been only your choice to use your Free Will in the service of your ego rather than in honor of your Perfect Creation that has prevented you from being first willing and later able to accept the unlimited vastness and unrestricted Perfection of your Creation. Endless Creativity, boundless energy and permanent Joy form both your birthright and your Home. God has Created a Universe for you, one in which all that you will ever need has already been Given. You do not need to do anything, become anything that you are not already or transcend any difficulty to become worthy of this Universe of Love. It is already accessible to you. It waits for nothing and it does not ask you to perform any tasks to find its Light. It is already Present at the center of your heart. Look for it with a quiet and still mind, for you cannot find your true Center if you are scattered, accepting the bewildering array of lies that the ego will offer in the place of the Truth that because you are Loved by God, you are already Complete.
