2-9. If you could know Truth, it would be all that you would ever quest for in your mind. But Truth cannot be known, it can only be Experienced.
That which is to be Experienced can, after it is Experienced, be Known. But this Knowledge is forever abstract in its composition and effect. To Know is not to Experience. The River of the Mind of God does not flow from Knowledge to Experience. It forever moves only from the level of Experience, which is forever transcendent of this world, to the level of Knowledge, which does share characteristics with that which is commonplace in this world. The Infinity of the Mind of God can be Experienced. But this Infinity cannot be Known. It is much too vast to be contained, summarized, isolated, distilled or rendered into the abstractions that Knowledge, even in its ultimate and perfected form, will forever remain. Knowledge in its perfected form accurately reflects the Truth of God and of Love. But Knowledge is not everything. In fact, it is such a small part of all that is, now and forever, that to regard Knowledge as the bastion or citadel of God is foolish. God is so much more than the Knowledge of all that has occurred, is occurring, and that which can occur that to attempt to compare Knowledge to the Infinity of God is a proposition that is forever devoid of utility. What is must lead to is the inescapable conclusion that there is much more to be Experienced than all that this world offers. Indeed there is much more to be Experienced than even what the Perfect Mind of God will offer when you are ready to begin to accept the Knowledge of God. But this Knowledge does have great and abiding use. It is useful for it can serve to be an effective and reliable Guide, a source of unfailing accuracy and a vehicle for correctly discerning the right choices to make in any and all situations. This is because God will never fail to provide to you all of the Knowledge that you might ever have need of to accurately decide what are the best choices for you to make to ensure that with each moment of your life, your choices are leading you down the Path that God has chosen for you to return to Love. Were you to be able to know this Love and the Infinite Peace that it will bring to your Soul when you finally are ready to accept it as your own, you would release all else that you desire and you would pursue it endlessly. But it is not a goal to be obtained or a prize to be won. Because it was Given by God when you were Created, it is already yours. It is not that you lack the Peace of God. It is simply that you have forgotten it. To forget is not to lose. To believe that what God has chosen to Give you could ever be lost, no matter how difficult, strange, unnatural or bizarre this world may appear to be, is to attempt to cast the shadow of the ego’s doubts over the Face of God. You cannot achieve this proposition. You can not affect the Perfection of God and you cannot lose the Gifts of God. Even to attempt to quest for the Truth that you are forever Loved by God within the deepest recesses of your mind is without value, for you will not find this Truth with or within your mind. This Truth is so fundamental that it is forever accessible only through your heart in a process that goes so far beyond all that your mind, although it is Infinite, can ever possibly hope to understand, that it is absolutely and eternally a Truth that must be Experienced. This Experience will change absolutely everything. Or rather, it will appear to alter everything that you have held to be true about this world, although in Truth nothing at all has actually been altered in the slightest degree. What has shifted is not this world, for it is merely an illusion which has utility but no permanence, but rather your perceptions. Reorienting themselves to a new vision, the Experience of the Truth of Love will open new vistas that could never be found with the apparatus of your mind and its highly standardized methods of perception. To perceive is, generally, a process which entails you first deciding what you want to see, and then attempting to conform the sensory data that your body provides into patterns that acceptably match that which appears to be real in this world. This is not the way to find the Truth of Love. Surrender to the Will and Love of God instead of attempting to believe that it is possible for you to use your mind or your current set of tools of perception, so long ago learned and so closely modeled upon the propositions and suppositions of this world and what they have taught you. Faith is absolutely necessary in this process. This systematic undoing of the beliefs of this world, replacing the momentary and fragmentary systems of perception that they offer, opens a place within your heart from which the Memory of the Love of God can begin to arise and be Experienced. This may not occur rapidly. That is not to say that it cannot. Indeed it can, and for some Souls it has in a revolutionary geyser of Truth, instantly obliterating that which they previously held to be true and replacing it with the Light of Truth that is forever available to you. But this is rare and frequently it was difficult for the Souls who experienced such a rapid shift from a limited to an unlimited perspective. To say that nothing was ever the same again for them is highly accurate. But it is not necessary for your vision to be so opened and enlightened in such a sudden manner. Generally, it is preferable to allow the illusions of this world to be gently released, falling one by one to the Light of Love that is forever accessible within the center of your heart. At the core of your heart there is a place in which the Memory of the Mind of God is forever retained and remembered. This center is not accessible through the disparate presentation of opposites and the ideas of separation that so roil your mind at almost every turn. It is a quiet center, a certain place of surety in which all judgment is released in favor of acceptance. Acceptance of your own Perfect Nature and by undeniable extension, what must be the innate Perfection of all of God’s Creation. This Truth will, quite literally, set you Free. This Freedom will be a release of all that is forever held against God and an Acceptance that the Kingdom of God and the Glory of Heaven is actually, and eternally, utterly Real. Real in a manner that this world cannot accept or understand, for it needs nothing and asks for nothing. This is a Truth that cannot be perceived, for it is already an integral part of you and you can never be separated from it. Perception attempts to discern between the perceiver and that which is perceived. But in Truth, there is no separation between anything, for all of Creation is forever United by the Love that was its genesis and foundation. You already have this Truth. You do not need to seek for it outside of your own heart, for it has never been lost to you. It has simply been forgotten for an incredibly long amount of time. The Truth of the Infinite Love of God cannot be first known, and then Experienced, for it is not knowledge. It must be first Accepted, so that it can then be Experienced. It is not abstract in any way. It is forever Real. In its Reality and Certainty is all that you will ever need to recognize and remember that you have always been Free.
