C 7: III. The Reality of the Kingdom, P 5

III. The Reality of the Kingdom, P 5

5 God has lit your mind Himself, and keeps your mind lit by His Light because His Light is what your mind is. This is totally beyond question, and when you question it you are answered. The Answer merely undoes the question by establishing the fact that to question reality is to question meaninglessly. That is why the Holy Spirit never questions. His sole function is to undo the questionable and thus lead to certainty. The certain are perfectly calm, because they are not in doubt. They do not raise questions, because nothing questionable enters their minds. This holds them in perfect serenity, because this is what they share, knowing what they are.


Everything about the ego mind is the opposite of reality. In the ego mind we question everything. Nothing is absolute. Everything is unstable, doubtful, and uncertain. The more “advanced” science becomes the less we actually know and with each advancement we feel the sand shift beneath our feet as we wake up to discover what we were told yesterday is not longer true today. We seem to get smaller and more insignificant as we discover the vastness of the universe.

But there is in our mind a Light. We never lose that Light because it was placed there by God and so it is what we are. In this Light there is Knowledge that is certain and unchanging. Here questioning is unheard of because there is nothing to question. Here we have no doubts and so we have no fears. In the Light, doubt and fear are unknown. In the Light we are the vastness in which the universes exist.

What incredibly powerful beings we are that we can block from our awareness the brilliant Light that we are, and block it so completely that we must be taught what is already known. And so like not very bright students we muck around in our classroom, our eyes tightly closed against the obvious, pretending we have questions that need answers. The Holy Spirit answers us with the truth: There are no answers because there are no questions.

We will not be taught to make sense of the nonsensical. We will simply be led out of our delusions into Reality. In the end, the only thing that happens is that we open our eyes (metaphorically speaking) to what is right here. We spend all our time learning that there is nothing to learn. We already are what we seek. Sometimes I giggle when I think about this. Imagine how we will laugh when the truth finally dawns on our mind.
