Self-Created Experience

Until you fully decide to come into life as the presence of Christ, as the presence of Love, and to own each moment of your experience as wholly self-created, for no other reason than that you have chosen it from the perfect and infinite freedom of your unlimited being, life has not yet begun.  (“The Way of the Heart,” The Way of Mastery, Lesson 6, Page 79)

Have we truly been living?  Or have we merely been existing?  This is not an unimportant point.  We have been creating our reality, and we haven’t known how to do that very well.  We have often seen ourselves as victims of others, as victims of our experience in life.

This attitude is not accurate.  We have been making the decisions that brought our experiences in life to us.  We have been doing the manifesting.  Just because we didn’t know how to do this very well is no reason to blame anybody else, to blame others.  It has all been our fault.

Now Jesus is showing us the way to manifest, to truly own each self-created moment.  He is teaching us how to live.  We will not truly live until we know what we are about.  Until we stop blaming others for our plight in life.

We are the instigators, the manifesting entities.  We need to look with fresh eyes upon our experiences, knowing that in forgiveness of others lies our reward.  They have not done anything, for they have acted in innocence, in illusion.  True reality has not been affected.  The harmony, joy, peace, mellowness are still here for us to dwell in.  But to get to that height of passion, we need to recognize that our brothers and sisters have done nothing to us, in reality; they have just been pawns in a larger game.

Forgive our experiences and the people who seemed to perpetrate them.  Forgive and thereby be free.
