Teachers of God,

Lesson 258

Let me remember that my goal is God.

All that is needful is to train our minds to overlook all little senseless aims, and to remember that our goal is God. His memory is hidden in our minds, obscured but by our pointless little goals which offer nothing, and do not exist. Shall we continue to allow God's grace to shine in unawareness, while the toys and trinkets of the world are sought instead? God is our only goal, our only Love. We have no aim but to remember Him.

Our goal is but to follow in the way that leads to You. We have no goal but this. What could we want but to remember You? What could we seek but our Identity?

We're finishing up Chapter 21 with talking about faith, truth and who we are and how we want to behave in the world. We're going to be talking about the reliability of REASON and TRUTH to help us make good decisions that bring us happiness. Bring a love offering. WE're gonna sing and laugh and share ourselves with the world.

Explanation of Images: We have confirmation bias. We look for things that support our way of seeing things. We overlook what contradicts our beliefs and so does everyone else. We have a choice to open our minds and experience reality or reinforce our own misconceptions. We base our choices upon who we think we are. If we think we’re little, fragile and limited we choose one door of experience. If we believe we’re the children of gods we go through another door and experience a difference reality. The reliable way to know which door to choose is reason. Our egos and do not understand it, but we do. We can reason a good decision, a good outcome by relying on what is true; matching means and ends. Faith in what is not true will never make it true. Relying on faith only works when we believe in and act on our truest nature. Reason is in our nature and is reliable. Cultivating reason is a useful skill to practice. Just like a DJ constructs a logic stack to make sure everything works together as she wants, we can use reason to experience as much reality as we can handle.
