C 8: III. The Holy Encounter, P 7

III. The Holy Encounter, P 7

7 You can encounter only part of yourself because you are part of God, Who is everything. His power and glory are everywhere, and you cannot be excluded from them. The ego teaches that your strength is in you alone. The Holy Spirit teaches that all strength is in God and therefore in you. God wills no one suffer. He does not will anyone to suffer for a wrong decision, including you. That is why He has given you the means for undoing it. Through His power and glory all your wrong decisions are undone completely, releasing you and your brother from every imprisoning thought any part of the Sonship holds. Wrong decisions have no power, because they are not true. The imprisonment they seem to produce is no more true than they are.


In choosing separation we made a wrong decision, but God does not will that we suffer for it. He wants only our happiness and so has given us the means to correct our error. This original error is repeated over and over in our lives, appearing in different forms, but it is all the same error.

The ego is always trying to find ways to correct my errors or to project them onto others in an attempt to make me feel safer, but I am not meant to correct my errors alone because I am not alone. That is just another mistake. I have been given a Corrector and the way to make use of that gift is to turn my guilty thoughts over to Him to be undone.

I made mistakes when I was raising my children and for a long time I suffered for those errors. But then I learned that I have a Holy Spirit that undoes this error and ends my suffering. When I have guilt thoughts about parenting, I remember that God does not will I suffer for that error and I ask the Holy Spirit to remove from my mind the belief that I am forever imprisoned by a wrong decision. I ask that He release me from my fear by undoing my decision.

I made mistakes in my relationships, and mistakes as a teacher of God. I made wrong decisions many times, and all these wrong decisions were a reflection of the decision for separation. But none of these decisions, not the original error or any of the reflective errors is real and so they have no real power and are easily undone by One Who was created for that purpose. As I allow the Holy Spirit to undo these wrong decisions that I seem to make daily, I am allowing Him to correct the original error and free us all from our belief in guilt.
