Let Us Not be Deceived

Let Us Not be Deceived

Sometimes I really wish that my life didn’t need to illustrate these lessons so vividly.  Real estate isn’t for sissies.  Someone or another is always on the edge of freaking out and threatening to blow up deals that don’t need to blow up.  Fear creeps in, rears its ugly head and tries to throw a bomb into the middle of peace.  It’s disheartening.  It’s soul-crushing.  It’s totally unnecessary.

The hard part for me is that I forget sometimes and allow it to undermine my confidence as a professional.  I had to call my Practitioner to remind me who I am so that I can let go of my own impulse to blow the whole thing up.  Seriously, if I let myself run with the fear, I could blow up my life on so many levels and I don’t know that I am prepared to deal with that.

Somehow, I am remembering the movie War of the Roses where Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas play a couple going through a divorce that takes nastiness to new heights as they both fight to keep their house.  I’m not certain what any of that has to do with this other than the whole escalating things.  Fear escalates things unnecessarily.

I could see peace instead of this.

Yeah, I’m in no mood to go instead fear; so I need today’s lesson:

Lesson 240

Fear is not justified in any form.

Fear is deception. It attests that you have seen yourself as you could never be, and therefore look upon a world which is impossible. Not one thing in this world is true. It does not matter what the form in which it may appear. It witnesses but to your own illusions of yourself. Let us not be deceived today. We are the Sons of God. There is no fear in us, for we are each a part of Love Itself.

How foolish are our fears! Would You allow Your Son to suffer? Give us faith today to recognize Your Son, and set him free. Let us forgive him in Your Name, that we may understand his holiness, and feel the love for him which is Your Own as well.

Ego wants to make someone wrong.  Ego wants to blame.  It is my job as a miracle worker not to go there.  Good Lord; ego is such an extremist that last night I felt suicidal and I was so glad we don’t keep guns in the house.

Really?!?!?  Over a fucking house?!?!

I think part of me is angry with my sellers for going into fear, though I get it.  This house “should” have closed weeks ago and at this point we don’t even have a close date.  We thought we did, but there are snafus that keep arising and the buyer must really love the house because he’s jumping through every hoop.  The thing that freaks my sellers out is that at this point the buyer is renting the property and instead of treating him like someone who cherishes the house, they are acting like he’s going to destroy it.

Fear is not justified in any form.  Fear is never justified.  It takes however long it takes and in the meantime, they get to collect rent at a decent rate for each day it is delayed.

I’m the professional here and it is my job to help manage their fears.  It is my job as a metaphysician to know the truth.  It is my job to know who they are; to see past the fear,  To keep them from blowing things up unnecessarily.

I’m glad I’m a metaphysician.  I’m glad I have a Practitioner.  I was allowing their fear to hijack me, and I can’t afford to do that because the ramifications would be too far reaching.  Fear is not justified in any form.

I must remain solid.  I must remember who I am so that I may see all the players as they are.  The Holy Spirit can help me, but not if I am fighting to keep my fear.  The correction of fear is my responsibility.

“Whenever you are afraid, it is a sure sign that you have allowed your mind to miscreate and have not allowed me to guide it.”

3 It is pointless to believe that controlling the outcome of misthought can result in healing. When you are fearful, you have chosen wrongly. That is why you feel responsible for it. You must change your mind, not your behaviour, and this is a matter of willingness. You do not need guidance except at the mind level. Correction belongs only at the level where change is possible. Change does not mean anything at the symptom level, where it cannot work.

4 The correction of fear is your responsibility. When you ask for release from fear, you are implying that it is not. You should ask, instead, for help in the conditions that have brought the fear about. These conditions always entail a willingness to be separate. At that level you can help it. You are much too tolerant of mind wandering, and are passively condoning your mind’s miscreations. The particular result does not matter, but the fundamental error does. The correction is always the same. Before you choose to do anything, ask me if your choice is in accord with mine. If you are sure that it is, there will be no fear.”

There is no fear when I align my mind with God’s.  It doesn’t matter that I think these sellers should know better.  I called my Practitioner so I could get over that.

Real estate ain’t for sissies, but fear is not justified in any form.  Spirit called my name at 5:00 a.m. this morning and literally woke me out of a deep sleep so that I could get up early and nip this thing in the bud.  I’m tired and I want to go back to bed, but when God calls your name, you answer.  Or at least I do.


“Let us not be deceived today. We are the Sons of God. There is no fear in us, for we are each a part of Love Itself.”

I am part of Love itself.  My sellers are part of Love itself.  The buyers are part of Love itself.  The lender is part of Love itself.  The title people are part of Love itself.  The escrow people are part of Love itself.  God is always present.

I will not be seduced by appearances.  Turn away from conditions.  And forget what I think other people should know.  Let us not be deceived.  I’m here to know it for them.

(“Only what you have not given can be lacking in any situation.”  Really! Again!!!)

Namaste, my friends, Namaste.
