Teachers of God;
We've started the 9th Question. We're in the Hall of the Second Coming. So what is the Second Coming? The Introduction says "Christ's Second Coming, which is sure as God, is merely the correction of mistakes, and the return of sanity." Are we ready to operate from our sane minds at all times? Are we ready to know ourselves as sane? Can we imagine seeing our mistakes before we make them? The second coming is the realization that it's alright where we are and it's safe and fun to be ourselves and all those crazy ideas we like to worry about just go away.
The 10 Pillars of Second Coming
301. And God Himself shall wipe away all tears.
302. Where darkness was I look upon the light.
303. The holy Christ is born in me today.
304. Let not my world obscure the sight of Christ.
305. There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.
306. The gift of Christ is all I seek today.
307. Conflicting wishes cannot be my will.
308. This instant is the only time there is.
309. I will not fear to look within today
310. In fearlessness and love I spend today.
I recognize my suffering as insane. There is a reality here that loves and appreciates me and sees me as whole and completely joyful and free. I recognize this darkness and and shine my light of peace that my insanity vanishes. I birth my holiness into the world today and will not let my insanity obscure my sight of wholeness and peace. I seek only to share my peace and joy with all beings. I have only the wish to birth my passion. I choose this moment to participate with the co-creation of my experience of greater sanity and wholeness. I am not afraid because I see through my insanity today. I walk easily through my fear to the Love and Joy that are my inheritance.
We're wrapping up Chapter 26: The Transition with Section 10: The End of Injustice. Goes hand in hand with the lessons we're learning from the 2nd Coming. Are we acting on understandings? Are we ready to wake up to our best lives and best decisions? How do you conduct your intimate relationships? Is there any place in your emotional vocabulary for guilt and attack? What gets your blood boiling? What are your triggers? Do you know what 'gets your goat"? and how do you deal with that? Do you know what justice and injustice really look like? Feel like? Join us and we'll talk about strategies that bring peace and those that bring attack.

Explanation of Images:
The plot of the Good the Bad & the Ugly has three gunslingers crossing and double crossing each other to acquire a buried treasure. Each of us has the ability to either operate from our innocence or guilt in dealing with others. We can work together and participate with our wholeness or we can attack and compete with each other. We are participating with our peace or not. The truth is we are the very embodiment of innocence and cannot lose it. And neither can anyone else. Do we see the inherent futility of the game of guilt and the rewards of acting on our innocence and the inherent innocence of others?
