IV. The Only Answer, P 2
2 When God created you He made you part of Him. That is why attack within the Kingdom is impossible. You made the ego without love, and so it does not love you. You could not remain within the Kingdom without love, and since the Kingdom is love, you believe that you are without it. This enables the ego to regard itself as separate and outside its maker, thus speaking for the part of your mind that believes you are separate and outside the Mind of God. The ego, then, raised the first question that was ever asked, but one it can never answer. That question, “What are you?” was the beginning of doubt. The ego has never answered any questions since, although it has raised a great many. The most inventive activities of the ego have never done more than obscure the question, because you have the answer and the ego is afraid of you.
When we decided to have an experience outside of Love, we made the ego and being made without love it does not love us. In fact, the ego is afraid of us and with good reason, because having made the ego we can change our mind at any time and it will cease to exist. This is exactly what we are doing right now. We are changing our minds. We have had our experience and now we are choosing to let it go.
For me the problem has been convincing myself that I am not the ego. I have been identified with the ego for so long that I nearly completely forgot my identity. Fortunately, there is the Holy Spirit placed in my mind for the purpose of keeping that memory intact, and so it is possible for me to recover my true identity.
I am now asking the questions that matter, but I am not asking the ego. I am asking the Holy Spirit. Who am I? What am I? But I am also reminding myself that this information is available to me and that it is actually right there in my mind where it is always available to me. So I also use a mantra; I know what I am. I know who I am. I know how I serve. (Paul Selig: I am the Word)
I remind myself that I know this because I am not afraid of finding the truth. At least I am not afraid to the degree I used to be. My desire to wake up is much stronger now and so it is happening. In each moment, I receive as much help as I am able to use, because on this one thing my will is in alignment with God’s Will. It is God’s Will that His children return their full minds to the truth, and now that I am getting in touch with my true desire to do this as well, how could I fail?
