Do Not Arrest Your Thought in This World

by Rev. Myron Jones, O.M.C.

There are two sentences in the Text, Section III, paragraph 16 that feel really meaningful to me this morning. One is that “freedom from illusions lies only in not believing them.” I love this for its simplicity. Yes, it can feel difficult not to believe in what seems so real, but then that is the purpose of the illusion, to feel real. So, when I experience the effects of believing in the illusion, I ask the Holy Spirit to remove those thoughts from my mind, the thoughts I believe that could not be real.

I felt harassed yesterday. There seemed to be too much work for one day and I felt overwhelmed. I noticed that I was projecting, placing blame on people and situations. These are illusions. They affected me because I believed them. I could easily have questioned them, but I didn’t. Normally, when I feel like I have too much to do, I ask that Holy Spirit decide for me what to do and what to let go. I remind myself that it is just a thought in my mind that I have more to do than I can do. For some reason, yesterday I didn’t question my thoughts and so I suffered until I changed my mind about that.

The second sentence that stands out to me says, “Do not arrest your thought in this world, and you will open your mind to creation in God.” When I accepted the idea that I was harassed and overwhelmed and did not question that thought, I had arrested my thought in this world. When I finally realized what I was doing and I asked for correction, the barriers that seemed to hold me hostage to my suffering fell away. I was in immediate peace and I was given ideas that corrected some of the errors I made while confused.

What I have discovered is that I can always choose to not believe the illusion. Sometimes it feels hard and I have to talk myself into letting go. Sometimes I have to ask for help over and over, not because I have to talk the Holy Spirit into helping me, but because I have to talk myself into accepting the help. But this is something that I can do.

I can, with the help of the Holy Spirit, free my mind from the belief in illusions and the process is very simple. I notice I am not happy and I ask that my mind be healed, then I allow the aberrant thought to be removed from my mind. I sit for a while as my mind is healed and I am in awe of the process that is occurring. I am deeply grateful for what is being done on my behalf. I remind myself that I am not this body or this story. I am spirit. I am the Thought of God, created by Him, like Him. This silly moment cannot be reality. Then I allow my mind to fly free of this world.
