After listening to a wonderful youtube presentation by Tim Wise and Lyn Corona, (see the link below) I realize how addicting the ego voice is. We are in “ego mode” when we search for and MUST find something or someone to blame. We want to blame the pain and fear on something! The source of inner pain and even bodily pain is from listening to the ego…believing this faulty thinking is right and then choosing to be in ego mode. All depression, anxiety, worries and guilt are caused by believing the ego.
We are all addicted to something, alcohol, sex, TV, News, gambling, food, air, gossip, but everyone is addicted to one thing: the inner voice we hear in our minds: the ego. The false voice. We also ALL have an alternative however.
Right now we have the coronavirus circling the world. Who are we going to blame? Some foreign people, the military, all the Politian’s? It is the ego part of our mind doing the blaming and we believe it because we want to! We need to blame and project onto someone so we can feel better.
The ego is attracted to pain because it means the body is REAL, the world is REAL and we are important. It keeps us trapped in the dream of being a body in the illusion. We are a puppet of the ego when that happens.
When we decide we are tired of this blame game because of the pain it causes, we look within and see, according to the Course that our only problem is the separation we feel from God. That is impossible. We cannot be separate from God because we are In God at this very moment, but we don’t think we are.
If we choose blame, we are continuing the separation from God because that is what we did to Him when we chose the ego. Yes, the “tiny mad idea” in the Course tells us we chose the ego to be separate from God. If we blame ourselves or feel guilty from separating from God we are still listening to the ego mode and we are in the blame game.
The solution: We take a deep breath, step aside from the ego in your mind, take the hand of Jesus – the Holy Spirit that connects us to God and say: “I am as God Created Me, help me see this differently.” See A Course In Miracles, Workbook Lesson 110.
We insist on finding a “bad guy” to blame because we don’t want to take responsibility for the decision to separate from God. We do it every time we blame someone and make them the guilty one. We do unto them, what we did unto God. But we also do it to ourselves.
You are NOT separate from God because that is impossible. But in this dream we “believe” we are. To get out of the dream of pain ask Jesus:
“I am stuck, take my hand, help me see the way you do. Help me let go of this judgment and blame I place on ______ as I let go of my projections, believing the ego’s lies that hurt me.”
The tiny mad idea that we can be separate from God is just that…..a mad idea! An idea is not real. You are not a puppet. You are a Mind, an innocent Son of God with the power in you to follow the loving kindness in your heart, holding the hand of Love and going home to Heaven where you really are and have always been.
