Message from God: book 1/102
You cannot resist something to which you grant no reality. The act of resisting a thing is the act of granting it life. When you resist an energy, you place it there. The more you resist, the more you make it real, whatever it is you are resisting.
What you open your eyes and look at disappears. That is, it ceases to hold its illusory form.
If you look at something, truly look at it, you will see right through it, and right through any illusion it holds for you, leaving nothing but ultimate reality in your sight. In the face of ultimate reality your puny illusion has no power. It cannot long hold you in its weakening grip. You see the truth of it, and the truth sets you free.
There is nothing in your reality to hold onto. Yet if you do choose the illusion of your life over ultimate reality, you may simply recreate it, just as you created it to begin with. In this way you may have in your life what you choose to have and eliminate from your life what you no longer wish to experience.
Yet never resist anything. If you think that by your resistance you will eliminate it, think again. You only plant it more firmly in place. Have I not told you all thought is creative?
If you cannot not think about it, then do not resist. Rather, look at whatever it is directly, accept the reality as your creation, then choose to keep it or not, as you wish.
Who and What you think you Are dictates your choice. And Who and What you choose to Be.
This dictates all choice, every choice you have made in your life. An ever will make.
The word renunciate holds such wrongful meaning. It truth, you cannot renounce anything, because what you resist persists. The true renunciate does not renounce, but simply chooses differently. This is an act of moving toward something, not away from something.
You cannot move away from something, because it will chase you all over hell and back. Therefore resist not temptation, but simply turn from it. Turn toward Me and away from anything unlike Me.
Yet know this: there is no such thing as an incorrect path, for on this journey you cannot “not get” where you are going.
It is simply a matter of speed, merely a question of when you will get there, yet even that is an illusion, for there is no “when,” neither is there a “before” or “after.” There is only now; an eternal moment of always in which you are experiencing yourself.
The point of life is not to get anywhere; it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. You are, always and forever, in the moment of pure creation. The point of life is therefore to create, who and what you are, and then to experience that.
