Truth is restored to you through your desire, as it was lost to you through your desire for something else. T-20.VIII.1:2
When I see attack, fear vulnerability, weakness, loss and death I am seeing what I wish to see. If I wish to be separate from love then separation is what I experience.
The purpose of all seeing is to show you what you wish to see.
I desire a world where I can be on my own, a world where I can rule, a world where I am first and God is second. It is a world of fear because believing I can separate myself from innocent and love is a fearful thought.
The world was made as an attack on God. It symbolizes fear. And what is
fear except love’s absence? Thus the world was meant to be a place where God could
enter not, and where His Son could be apart from Him. W-pII.3.2
Yet there is another desire in our minds: a desire for the truth, to remember our true identity and to return to love.
What God did not give you has no power over you, and the attraction of love for
love remains irresistible. T-12. VIII. 7:10
It is wonderful to look at our desire for separation and see the desire for joining at the same time. To realise that no matter how much we wanted fear, love was always present.
When we call on love or ask for Spirit’s help it is a sign that our desire for separation is waning. Then desire to remember our true Identity grows so strong that we experience that separation is impossible. It is impossible because there is only love.
But your defenses did not let you see His loving blessing shine in every step you
ever took. While you made plans for death, He led you gently to eternal life. W135. 18:3-4
The attraction to death falls away when we experience that we cannot die. The eternal cannot die so what is the point in pretending we can?
The attraction of death falls away when we recognise that we can never be separate from life. It was only when we thought death was a real alternative that we desired it. Death is a symbol that we can have our own way. When we realise at first to our disappointment and then relief that we cannot make a world of death then are lead gently to an experience of eternal life.
