You’ve no doubt seen that bumper sticker on the back of someone’s car which expressed two simple words that made up a seemingly obvious phrase that said, “Imagine Peace”.
Well, given the fact that thoughts do create our reality then how do we do it? Of course, this particular bumper sticker was created to get this message out in a way in which just by virtue of the person reading it and saying it silently to themselves as they are driving in their car behind the car which displayed this message, the crux of the message could enter directly into their subconscious and begin its work to get the ball rolling so that all those who read it can find a way to do it.
Perhaps that’s why I’m writing this particular article. Since first reading that first and succeeding “Imagine Peace” bumper stickers I now have something to contribute to the work of bringing about World Peace.
I began thinking about this in the shower where, by virtue of the quality which water possesses toward connecting me to Spirit, I thought about where we are in human evolution now and where we are headed in either 1000 years, 100 years or 10 years. It could happen in one of those three powers of ten years. Or it could happen within a number of other different time intervals. I don’t really know. This is something which is wholly dependent upon a whole plethora of factors. What’s most important is that we put this to The Holy Spirit and Jesus in prayer who is in charge of The Atonement, let go and have faith enough to wait for the answer.
What I have received and of which you have the opportunity and the freedom to either accept as true or not is that we must imagine world peace from the starting point which is where we are now with all of the issues, problems, dilemmas, good and bad things happening now and take it sequentially step by step through time which has been given us as a learning aid by The Holy Spirit toward any and all of its possible conclusions.
The first conclusion that I see is a world in which Human Beings live upon a garden called Earth. We Are An Androgynous Race living in total harmony with Mother Earth and all created animals things…everything. This may be hard to imagine but yes, there no longer is a need for us to be divided into male and female. Procreation was originally meant to insure our survival. We are no longer in danger because nothing can hurt us. We’ve grown beyond our need for fear which ruled us through our Ego for 10,000 years.
Things are very different now. What’s more, we no longer need to eat animal flesh or any of the plants for the protein to maintain the muscles covering our skeletal framework or the anatomy that we once needed. The food we take into our bodies comes from the atmosphere. The atmosphere is thick with all kind of intangible elements we can’t imagine right now which when breathed in gives us all we need to maintain the healthy bodies which we possess now.
We know not of want but we are a mighty people who have come into our very right as God’s Children, Son’s Of God who live on Love. We are very technologically advanced. However, it is a totally organically-based technology which never inflicts harm upon the environment. A technology that is essentially invisible with the only visible sign of our culture being a collective of harmonized peaceful, yet extremely adventurous, fun-loving people. To visitors we almost seem primitive due to how close we live with nature but upon closer observation the visitor is pleasantly surprised to learn of how amazingly advanced but stunningly loving this caretaker species of Earth really is.
Nothing Is Impossible. Since we have chosen to remove the necessity of being ruled by our ego which we needed strictly for survival for 10,000 years, everything has changed. One of which is the seemingly limited capacity of our brains. We have evolved to the point in which we can utilize roughly 30 percent of our brain capacity. With that we are able to manipulate gravity, transport ourselves wherever we wish via thought, and with the bountiful love in our hearts due to our recovery of who we are as God’s Son, manipulate this planet and any planet we choose to whatever we want to create with all of the seminal elements which make it up.
We Are Creators living as The Image Of Our Parent, God.
This is the Dawn Of A Golden Age in Human Civilization which quite possibly we could create a continuum of for the next billion years or longer until it is finally time for our Universe, this All That Is to ultimately return to itself, It’s Creator, all that we have discovered through the power and opportunity of Knowledge. With an ease that can’t be imagined now, Humans have traversed not only their own sector of The Milky Way Galaxy, but its entirety, while being reunited with many of its inhabitants one of which seeded Earth many millennia ago giving rise to our unique brand of humanoid. And it never stops there for we long ago cast away that silly notion that the galaxy cannot be conquered. It shall be because Love Cannot Be Contained. When the cup of Love has overflowed, its time to seek a larger container with which to contain it and still a larger container. Given that nothing can stand in the way of a Glorious Human Species from reuniting with its brothers and helping to promote understanding and knowledge amongst those who, like us long ago, were in their evolutionary infancy this is the logical progression of hope toward our destiny. It is at this point that we will have come full circle realizing that we are now The Creators like those who came into contact with us at the dawn of our civilization long, long ago.
It’s extremely difficult to imagine peace in a world that, by virtue of its dualistic nature, challenges us at every turn especially through the medium of television, with images of hatred, war, natural disasters and people suffering unimaginable things. As spiritually minded people who continually do good works we wonder if anything good can ever come of the effort we invest into trying to love this seemingly dark world of ours. But, we must continually remind ourselves that changes are occurring and they are actually happening at an accelerated rate right now compared to 15 years ago.
Thankfully, we have “A Course In Miracles” and many other healing modalities which when implemented (and they are as I write this) are turning back the seemingly dark clouds of fear and doubt. And even though it may seem that Jesus death on the cross 2000 years ago took him away from us, it is through his resurrection that The Christic Integrity remains a force to be reckoned with. Many of us do not understand just what happened back then and it is natural when we look at the altar in church to feel nothing but grief or even with his resurrection still feel a loss because it seems even though he rose from the dead that there is still a loss which causes us to feel alone.
We Are Not Alone. Jesus Christ lives and the utterly profound message he gives us lives through the pages of “A Course In Miracles” and He lives in our hearts and minds when we give him room. Together, reborn through the reality of The Christ Energy Of The Sonship we have the power to change our world in this way as if Jesus never died at all.
When we take what Jesus teaches, make it our own and live The Love Of God the very world we live in now is transformed into The Way It Is. The way we see it through our fault-prone five physical senses is in error and illusory. With Jesus wisdom and the lessons he gives us to put into practice this will all change and become something else entirely as if it had never gone wrong at all to begin with. The way that God sees us and our world. Perfect, sinless and as faultless as he originally created it all. It would be blasphemy for us to see it any other way and yet the Holy Spirit uses our error to help us learn that even God can’t conceive of blaming us for anything.
I have begun to practice what I’ve read in “A Course In Miracles” and that is why I have begun to understand that Imagining Peace is not only the answer but totally unavoidable for Human Beings. Up until this point we have been makers. Now, we have the opportunities of being Creators, Co-creators with God. With our little willingness, just by us calling upon The Holy Spirit for help, most of the work of restoration, including what I’ve detailed above, will be accomplished not through our toil and sweat but effortlessly, mostly by God and his 95% portion of responsibility. He only asks that we turn our gaze from the darkened glass of the ego and behold the brilliance of Love. The Love Of Christ.
In future articles I hope to speak concerning more tangible applications of “A Course In Miracles” in our daily life.
