Sin, disease and death are the effect of the practice of self-righteousness and the effect is on you, who is practicing it. Self-righteousness, practiced by your Brother or Sister affects them in their practice of it, not you. And so, to think that you, through the practice of the two-step, will engage in an activity that will cause your Brother to start treating you better is a misunderstanding.
Again: The human condition—the dream of existence—was the result of a mutual agreement engaged in by two Sons or Daughters of God. And Waking up is the undoing of those mutual agreements. It is the undoing of the mutuality of a special relationship in which special definitions, imaginative definitions, have been arrived at and agreed to and committed to. You see?
It’s the undoing of the relationship, which means—and this is the part that no one really wants to hear—it means that you and you alone have the means of abandoning the practice of self-righteousness and, in the abandonment of it, having your mind be healed. You see?
In a way it is totally private. It is something you must do in the withinness of your Being, without regard to your Brothers or Sisters, so that peace replaces the frustration and the self-righteous anger of self-righteousness, causing your mind to become clear, unconfused, at peace within itself, so that it is able to let the Father’s Perspective register with it—register with you—and in that Revelation be healed yourself, so that your perspective of your Brother is changed . . .
. . . not changed because you’re trying to change your Brother’s perspective, but because you’ve attended to the only thing you can attend to, which is whether you’re going to continue to practice self-righteousness, or whether you are going to abandon it by abandoning the special relationship and letting your Brother off the hook, and letting yourself off the hook by no longer saying, “My Brother will be the death of me yet.” “My daughter or my son will be the death of me yet” “Someone else in some magical way can ruin me, ruin my life.”
You cannot die from someone else’s self-righteousness. You hear that? You cannot die from someone else’s self-righteousness! You can access eternal life by abandoning your practice of self-righteousness. And in your acceptance and receipt of eternal life, you will find yourself being transformational . . . but not because you’re trying to. You will be transformational because you will no longer be participating with your Brothers and Sisters in mutual agreements that all of you believe are law and have committed yourselves to. You see?
The whole reason for looking at what self-righteousness is, and the need to abandon it, and your act of abandoning it, is because that brings forth the conscious experience of God’s Perspective in you and returns you to your right Mind, which right now is called the Holy Spirit because you’ve divorced yourself from It. And that is the process of the Movement of Awakening.
