Here’s a simple reflection to put in perspective Lesson 15 of ACIM’s Workbook for Students. Please read the lesson first (here) then my reflection.
My thoughts in Plato's Dark Cave Mean NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! My keepers and I Made them all up. They are no more than Chimera, ILLUSIONS, I'm told On a dank moss-covered wall Where nonsense penumbra flicker Ceaselessly From opaque flat screens, Computers, and vagrant iphones. It's all mirrors and smoke Shadows Projected by cruel and powerful Prison guards Who lie through their teeth. That our country is somehow Sovereign Free and virtuous, That our borders are sacred While those of others Must be kept open To the plunder Of those same manipulators Who (we're told) Are just doing business Waging "just wars" To keep us all Prosperous and safe. But that's just a lie Don't you see? We've bought their images Slurped their Kool-Aid Worshipped their projections Blinding us To the truth That "America" is "The world's greatest purveyor" Not of prosperity, But "of violence." The lies masquerade As common sense Only to free our captors Whose "work" Transfers (i.e. steals) resources From the world's Captive workers Whose brave resistance Is demonized As socialism, communism Terror And illegal immigration. All those shadow projections Propagandize everyone Deceive us But stand 180 degrees opposed To God's honest truth That sees no separation No borders No impoverished enemies No attacks From people oppressed By "American" crimes -- Not even from Muslims Or China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, Nicaragua, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Ethiopia... Think on that Please, today. Then see how many "Light episodes" Follow.
