Brought Right to That Edge . . .


God would not have His Son made prisoner to what he does not want.  He JOINS with you in willing you be free.  And to oppose Him is to make a choice against YOURSELF, and choose that YOU be bound.”

What it’s really important to understand is, that that’s where you are right now.  You are opposing Him and you are making a choice against yourself, and you are choosing that you be bound.  That’s why you seem to be governed by the laws of sin, disease and death, the laws of physics, the laws of entropy . . . you see? — the laws of constant conflict, forever remaining on the fragile balance point between each other.  That’s misery and not your Birthright.  And when you get brought right to that edge, you realize it!

At that point, you generally express innate Sanity, and you give up.  And you say, “Father, help!”  And in that act, you abandon the mutual agreements.  You abandon the brotherhood of orphans.  And you’re set free because the Will of God is still the Will of God.  It is still your Will.  And when you are undefended against It, It registers with you!

    How can you say that we are “victims” of the laws of physics!! We wouldn’t BE HERE were it not for them! Only a disembodied “entity” would claim such nonsense – in other words – AN EGO. Without this body (the result of the physical interplay of forces and elements) you wouldn’t BE HERE! You wouldn’t be anywhere!! The grace is that we can go beyond those laws – not by disparaging them, but by FULLY EMBRACING them and understanding them.
