The Fellowship of Awakening- July 16, 2014

Teachers of God;
We're finishing up the last of our foundation. We'll mix the last review and seal them all in place and begin building the rooms or halls as I call them. We're getting more and more expansive about who we are what is reality and peace....
191. I am the Holy Son of God Himself.
192. I have a function God would have me fill.
193. All things are lessons God would have me learn.
194. I place the future in the Hands of God.
195. Love is the way I walk in gratitude.
196. It can be but my self I crucify.
197. It can be but my gratitude I earn.
198. Only my condemnation injures me.
199. I am not a body I am free.
200. There is no Peace except the Peace of God.
I can know who I am and my purpose in this place. I have Family and Friends that support and nurture me. I will choose to respond with service to my Friends and Family that I may support and nurture our Wholeness. I have before me all the conditions of awakening fully to the knowledge of my inheritance, gifts and innate powers as the Child of God.  I am confident of what is to come because I listen to the Voice for God. That Voice tells me I am wholly loving and wholly lovable. I am grateful to be me and grateful there is you. I know attach is an illusion and con only hurt myself. I instead offer gratitude to the world. I operate in a sensual world that sends me all kinds of information about what I believe. I know I am not these sensations or beliefs and use this information to better express my function in the world. When I express my function in the world I experience Peace and offer it to the world.

We're on Chapter 16: The Forgiveness of Illusions. One of the most prominent illusions is what a healthy relationship looks like. Codependency and Enmeshment are reality problems. Are we in these relations to fill the hole of loneliness or boredom or even society's expectations. What are we trying to 'get' from our relationships? Are we sharing who we are? Do we really want to know this other person or just an acceptable version? How vulnerable and open can we be? Can I ask for what I truly want? It is in this sharing that we begin to understand that we have the opportunity to have a very holy and healthy relationship if we want it. We'll look at The Choice for Completion this week to see what part we're sharing with others

Explanation of Images:
Being someone else is very painful. Forcing someone else to change so that you are safe is also painful. We want to be everything to this other person and demand that they be everything to us as well. We can’t get from God, that special love to we turn to each other. The other cannot fulfill it either. The love we seek is in union with God, not another body. God is not in the separate, secret dysfunction of our relationships it’s in the expression of our union with all that is. We are not competed in a relationship we are completed in The Relationship. Follow the path that your
leads and it leads to Bridge of Heaven where we can experience the joy and beauty of another’s presence because they expertly, unconditionally reflect our true Wholeness.
