The world you see is an illusion

The world you see is an illusion of a world. God did not create it, for what God creates must be eternal like God.

This Instant is the Only Time There Is.

I have conceived of time in such a way that I defeat my aim. If I elect to reach past time to timelessness, I must change my perception of what time is for. Time’s purpose cannot be to keep the past and future one.

The only interval in which I can be saved from time is now. For in this instant has forgiveness come to set me free. The birth of Christ is now, without a past or future. Christ has come to give the present blessing to the world, restoring it to timelessness and love. And love is ever-present, here and now.

Thanks for this instant, God. It is now I am redeemed. This instant is the time You have appointed for Your Children’s release, and for salvation of the world in them.

Why would you believe you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in peace eternal?

The extremes that we are talking of leaving behind are extreme of reaction to a chosen lesson. What you are being asked to leave behind is the need for such lessons. 

If you have learned the curriculum, what further lessons are needed? What quite knowing cannot come to you in peace?

Why would you believe you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in peace eternal?
