The Fellowship of Awakening October 15, 2015
Teachers of God;
We're in the section "What is the Holy Spirit" and this is what the Course says: "The goal the Holy Spirit's teaching sets is just this end of dreams. For sights and sounds must be translated from the witnesses of fear to those of love." Are we learning to trust who we are and rely upon our inner guidance to steer us toward that experience?
We're going to finish up Chapter 25 the Justice of God with a chapter called the Justice of Heaven. It's very important to let self expression tell us how to share with others. What blocks it is comparison among other things. What do you think Justice is? Why is that such a big deal the course? Could it be that we have to change our thoughts about it? In what ways do we participate with justice?

Explanation of Images: It is essential to understand what the nature of Justice is. Every culture has a god or goddess dedicated to it. In the Aztec is was the god of Creation, Quetzalcoatl, in Hindu the god is Zuma, the god of death. The laws of Justice are our nature. It’s something each of us operate from. Little children say “It’s not fair!” when they don’t get what they want. We get confused early about how justice operates in the world. It’s synonyms are Truth, Right, Equality, etc. It’s an essential characteristic that allows for sharing with others. God is constantly sharing these characteristics with us. We receive them equally, but it doesn’t always look like that. Our willingness to act like we have enough and the world is safe insures that we’re able to experience greater and greater periods of the strength. Acting on Justice is our nature.
