C 7: IX. The Extension of the Kingdom, P 3

IX. The Extension of the Kingdom, P 3

3 The extension of God’s Being is spirit’s only function. Its fullness cannot be contained, any more than can the fullness of its Creator. Fullness is extension. The ego’s whole thought system blocks extension, and thus blocks your only function. It therefore blocks your joy, so that you perceive yourself as unfulfilled. Unless you create you are unfulfilled, but God does not know unfulfillment and therefore you must create. You may not know your own creations, but this can no more interfere with their reality than your unawareness of your spirit can interfere with its being.


This paragraph is very clear. My only function is to extend God’s Being, and this is true creation. The ego blocks this function and so blocks my joy and I am unfulfilled. But, God does not know unfulfillment and so I must create. This reminds me of the Introduction to the Course which tells us that nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal can exist.

The ego mind resists this logic but Jesus tells us that we must create. He tells us in other places in the Course that we are creating. We are unaware, but that does not interfere with reality. I have ways to think about this, stories that I tell myself to make it easier for me to accept. But I don’t really understand, not with my ego mind.

There is a part of me, however, that knows the truth and this knowing is stronger than the not knowing. I accept that I am still as God created me and that nothing I believe in can change reality. I am, right now, creating as God creates. This is true even though I am not aware of it. I don’t want to sleep through this anymore. Wake up, Myron, wake up!
