Guidance from Elder Brother

as Received and Transcribed by Sun~Rose*


TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You.  

When You see the word 'YOU'  capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.   


Questioner: Please, more of what You were saying as I was listening to Lesson 56 about the Real World lying behind what I see.


ELDER BROTHER: Here let us speak.  

"Beyond all my insane wishes is my will united with the Will of my Father. God is still everywhere and in everything forever. And we who are part of Him will yet look past all appearances and recognize the truth beyond them all." Lesson 56, Review of Lesson 29

"Truth is beyond Your ability to destroy but entirely within Your grasp. It belongs to You because You created it. It is Yours because it is a part of You, just as You are part of God because He created You."  ACIM-OE.TX.5.46


Yes. It is as You were getting. The word 'reflection' is only accurate in the dream, as You see Yourselves as so-called gods - each one of You - and the reflection of what You have quasi-created (and for those who have not looked up or don't know the word 'quasi' means: 'seems like but isn't') ...


Again, the reflection of what You have quasi-'created' is reflected back to You on the lens of the perception You invented and that blocks the Real World - the Kingdom of Heaven - from Your view,  although it is right here.


So You look out from Your so called mind - through the lens of distortion - and see no further than the lens, as the distortion mirrors back to You! And yet, right on the other side of the lens of the distorted vision lies Reality, so close that You could reach beyond and see It, reach out and feel It at any moment! That's where Your Perfection lives.  


Questioner: I feel Your smile.


ELDER BROTHER: Oh yes indeed. There isn't anything else here. And only self-will -  covering all the 'selfs' of justification, indulgence, determination, love so-called, aggrandizement - blocks the Vision of the Dreamers.


So now You see the path to Vision, another "journey without distance"'.


Questioner: I love You.


ELDER BROTHER: Likewise, I'm sure! [laughing] I am just as delighted as You are.  


Questioner: I can feel it.


ELDER BROTHER: Now that You listened [good girl].


Questioner: Ha Ha


ELDER BROTHER: And read what Miguel posted. Put it here and let's continue this.


It draws a circle, infinitely small, around a very little segment of Heaven splintered from the whole, proclaiming that within it is Your kingdom, where God can enter not.  ACIM-OE CH 18.72


ELDER BROTHER: Let us continue so You all can clearly see where Reality is not. And now You understand how apt the 'bubble' is as the lens. The bubble is self-will, including all the other 'selfs' we spoke about above. And this is the lens through which You see, and hear, and feel, and smell, and taste, and keep Yourselves 'asleep-ing' still.  


The Bible truly says: "oh taste and see that the Lord is good." And the Dreamer reaches for another cream puff.  Everything - every Holy Thing of God - is identifiable through all the senses, and not through consumption. It is like Your mode of saying: To drink in the beauty of the sunset. Or: "A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring. There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking largely sobers us again." [Alexander Pope, 1688-1744 Essay on Criticism. Part ii. Line 15]


I think You've got it. It is as I've said and now we'll take it to all the senses. As we walk the precipice together, not only are You blind but deaf and dumb as well, and numb so You cannot feel and neither can You taste or smell.  And so in Your absolute helplessness to understand anything, You must reach out to Me, as I have set the Holy Spirit free for You to see: as You, as Me.  


The response of holiness to any form of error is always the same. There is no contradiction in what holiness calls forth. Its one response is healing, without regard for what is brought to it. Those who have learned to offer only healing because of the reflection of holiness in them are ready at last for Heaven. There, holiness is not a reflection but rather the actual condition of what was but reflected to them here. God is no image, and His creations, as part of Him, hold Him in them in truth. They do not merely reflect truth, for they are truth. ACIM-OE CH 14.45
