A refusal to look upon the darkness and what the mind believes it has done leads to a fantasy world of complexity, confusion and sophisticated defense mechanisms. The belief in separation runs so deep that it constantly draws forth witnesses of victimization. Guilt and attack thoughts are projected onto characters and scenarios as a way of keeping them from awareness. Unconscious guilt is like a tape running in the mind, spinning stories as a defense against the truth.
While the world is willing to play out the fantasy, it is also ready to assist in the dismantling of the delusion under the care and guidance of Spirit. Everyone is playing their assigned role, and all it takes is a willingness to question every belief one holds. Admitting the guilt is a first step in healing. Forgiveness for what you believe you did (separate from God) will release the guilt. The world as you know it is a made up projection. Through a fractured lens, what’s perceived through the body’s eyes are witnesses to beliefs in the mind. Being willing to look upon the darkness is a step towards letting it go.
