Is Jesus in the real world waiting for us all to wake up?

Question: Is Jesus in the real world waiting for us all to wake up?

Answer: In "A Course in Miracles," Jesus says, "When I awoke, you were with me." So many times people think of Jesus ascending to the right hand of God. The best way to think of it is that Jesus was the first to realize the unreality of this world and to wake up from the dream. Now the Voice of Jesus and the Voice of the Holy Spirit are the same Voice. Jesus obviously was not a man. He is the Christ Spirit that reaches through the Holy Spirit to the mind that still believes in illusions. God is in Heaven. Christ is in Heaven.

The Holy Spirit, the third part of the trinity, is perhaps the most difficult to understand. There is an aspect of the Holy Spirit that is eternal. It was created by God and will remain with Christ and God forever. There is another aspect of the Holy Spirit that is an illusion. The light of the Holy Spirit seems to take the form of a Voice. In A Course in Miracles it is called the Voice “for” God, not "of" God. A very important distinction: Voice for God, representing God, not the Voice of God. God has no Voice!

So, that aspect of the Holy Spirit that seems to take on a Voice is the kindest answer to separation. It is a gentle Voice. It never commands. It reminds the mind of all the love of Christ. It offers suggestions. It does not make threats. It is very kind. That is probably the best way to think of Jesus right now.

Love, David
