Daily Reflections, Day Sixty six, Liberated from the prison of the ego


Day Sixty six
Liberated from the prison of the ego

“All learning was already in His Mind, accomplished and complete. He recognized all that time holds, and gave it to all minds that each one might determine, from a point where time was ended, when it is released to revelation and eternity. We have repeated several times before that you but make a journey that is done.” W-169.8:1-3

What is heaven like? What is the world of the Spirit? It always was, is now, and ever shall be. Eternity, after all, is eternity. It’s a hard idea for our little minds to grasp.

And yet this passage from A Course In Miracles, it tells us that God is…….. Always was……….Always will be. God is “accomplished and complete.” God has no need for time and time means nothing to God. With the revelation time for us is ended and “released to revelation and eternity” where time stands still and is no more. Time has no meaning in revelation. There is no time. There is no time like the present and there is nothing else.

Life is like a hologram according to A Course In Miracles which teaches that what seems to be each part encompasses the whole. And so, we, in the world of the ego seem to make a journey which is already done. We are here to become conscious of the world of the Spirit which has always existed and continues to exist even as we ignore it and forget it.

These metaphysical ideas are very hard for the mind to grasp and yet we sense their truth.

Today, I will take several moments and surrender my ego to God. I will willingly turn my will over to my Higher Power. I will “let go and let God” as they say in Alcoholic Anonymous. In this surrender to the Will of God comes great freedom to be who we are created to be, no longer captured and constrained by the chains and prison of the ego. We are liberated at last to rest in joy and bliss of the revelation.
