VIII. The Unbelievable Belief, P 5
5 Do not be afraid of the ego. It depends on your mind, and as you made it by believing in it, so you can dispel it by withdrawing belief from it. Do not project the responsibility for your belief in it onto anyone else, or you will preserve the belief. When you are willing to accept sole responsibility for the ego’s existence you will have laid aside all anger and all attack, because they come from an attempt to project responsibility for your own errors. But having accepted the errors as yours, do not keep them. Give them over quickly to the Holy Spirit to be undone completely, so that all their effects will vanish from your mind and from the Sonship as a whole.
The first sentence is in italics. I take the hint that this is important. I have no reason to fear the ego. I made it and it derives its power from my mind. It cannot exist unless I choose that it exists. The moment belief is withdrawn from ego, it ceases to exist. How can I fear something that is powerless against me?
The second very important point that Jesus is making in this paragraph is that I am responsible for the ego. I am responsible for the world and everything I see in the world. I am responsible, though not guilty, for all that I see, hear and feel. This tells me that if it is in my awareness it is there for me to heal it.
I am reminded of Dr. Hew Lin who healed an entire institution for the criminally insane through an ancient Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono. His use of this practice is a little different than the traditional method, but he proved that it worked. He healed these people without even seeing them. He read their files and healed within himself what he saw there.
This is what Wikipedia says about it: It is based on Len’s idea of 100% responsibility, taking responsibility for everyone’s actions, not only for one’s own. If one would take complete responsibility for one’s life, then everything one sees, hears, tastes, touches, or in any way experiences would be one’s responsibility because it is in one’s life. The problem would not be with our external reality, it would be with ourselves. To change our reality, we would have to change ourselves. Total Responsibility, according to Hew Len, advocates that everything exists as a projection from inside the human being. As such, it is similar to the philosophy of solipsism, but differs in that it does not deny the reality of the consciousness of others. Instead, it views all consciousness as part of the whole, so using parts of the idea of holism: any error that a person clears in their own consciousness should be cleared for everyone.
The prayer that Dr Lin uses to clear is this:
“I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”
You can read about this in Zero Limits, co-authored with Joe Vitale. There is a lot about it on the web and I write about it on my website at this link:
I agree with Dr. Hew Lin. I am solely responsible for my life and everything in it. I gladly take the next step in which as I notice what needs healing anywhere in my world, I quickly give it over to Spirit to be healed so that it will vanish from our mind.
