I have a memory of being born in a cocoon of light and love. An ancient memory of God’s love in creation… my ancient time of birth and of unspeakable joy, light, love and beauty. God wanted one more little child and so He thought of me. I am so loved.
In one sad instant, I made a crazy decision to experience time and distraction. I eroded my truth by straying and identifying with distraction. My ancient truth degraded through eons of time. But the good news is my ancient truth remains if I accept it. It will instantly return and overthrow all my illusions and distractions. It will instantly take its place as my sole reality as if nothing happened.
To help with that, I look within and see no sin because I reason with True Reason (reason is the act of carrying out sane premises in a logical way to yield sane conclusions… only this is done with spiritual reason). I reason that on the day I decided for time and separation God had a plan for my salvation. God does not will apart from me so I accepted and received as God’s Son His plan for my happiness. God’s Will is my will. I am co-creator and a co-willed creator with God. This happened instantaneously and is eternal. The instant God willed the Plan, I joined with it and it is in me eternally.
The Holy Spirit has also been there since this beginning and has also been part of God’s plan for my salvation. There is a place in me where I received and joined with Holy Spirit and is given to me all the way up to my present moment. I implicitly accept this and this leads to a logical conclusion — True Reason — I am One with God and the Holy Spirit and eternally safe in God’s love and light. By accepting True Reason I remember my ancient truth of unspeakable joy, light, love and beauty. I am loved.
