Here we go again . It looks like the world economy is going into another collapse and the media is going into a mass panic . I have noticed the so called experts giving advice where you should put your assets . Some say you should put them in gold or cash or property, but you may as well buy grains of sand, as it ain’t going to save you this time round and you shouldn’t want it to .
We believe our physical assets will keep us safe from what we fear above all and once these defences are threatened, we start going into panic mode . But what it is we are using these illusory objects to defend ourselves against ? It is nothing more than the “Love of God” and our ego which wants to continue our separation from God, encourages us to believe these physical assets have value .
Our ego is terrified of God and his verdict on us . The Last Judgement will be God’s judgement of us and scares the ego as it will be the end of the separation . The ego tells us God believes we are guilty and we should be scared of Him ( the ego God is always male ) . In truth, it is we who have declared a verdict of Guilty on ourselves and the Last Judgement from God will finally undo this self inflicted sore, as the verdict is and always be – Innocent . The ego uses the physical world against God and the same tricks time and time again .
They won’t work this time . If the recent past is anything to go by, it’s going to be dramatic and we are going to shake, rattle and roll for a few more years but the financial turmoil has reminded me of two quotes from A Course In Miracles, which are worth knowing in times of apparent difficulty . ( I, often, quote from A Course in Miracles, I know but it says what I want to say better than I ever could ) :
- All things work together for good . There are no exceptions except in the ego’s judgement . ( To explain my views on this, I don’t see every murder or war as ” God’s Work” but each event can be used for forgiveness)
- I am sustained by the Love of God . Here is the answer to every problem that will confront you, today and tomorrow and throughout time . In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything but God . Your faith is placed in the most trivial and insane symbols : pills, money, protective clothing, influence, prestige, being liked, knowing the “right” people and an endless list of forms of nothingness that you endow with magical powers .
All these things are your replacements for the Love of God . All these things are cherished to ensure a body identification . They are songs of praise to the ego . Do not put your faith in the worthless . It will not sustain you .Put not your faith in illusions . They will fail you . Put all your faith in the Love of God within you, eternal, changeless and forever unfailing .
Remember, you are always safe .
