“My thoughts are images that I have made.”

God is formless Love. The extension of God is formless Love. Because we all are God’s extensions, we are formless Love. This Love is all encompassing. There is nothing outside of Love. Image making, on the other hand, is the ego’s effort to make finite forms out of the infinite. In reality this is impossible. In dreams, this is the norm.

It is very helpful for me to recognize that the images I see with my physical eyes are my thoughts. This is image making. It is very helpful for me to let it sink in that these images are not real. It helps me step back and look at these images differently. It helps me return to the Holy Spirit to see what anything means. It helps me remember that these images of separation are really an attempt to replace God’s universal oneness.

This lesson reminds me that I need to step back often, because the world does appear so real and I often get caught up in the image making story. Getting caught up in the image making story does not bring me peace. It does not bring me happiness. Receiving Holy Spirit’s perceptions about what I am seeing does bring me peace. It brings me a step closer toward removing the blocks to Love’s presence. I am willing to practice seeing that the images I see are the images I am making up. I am willing to go through this undoing process. It may take years. It doesn’t matter.

No matter what illusions I am believing in in any moment, only Love is real. Truth is true and nothing else is true. My trying to make something else true doesn’t change Reality one iota. Thank goodness. Thank goodness we are all safe in God forever, no matter what images I may try to make real. I am seeing that this lesson is such a blessing. It is giving me a step-by-step process that helps me see what is really going on. It is giving me a way to return to my one Self in God.
