In the last segment we discussed how most of us are unwilling to give up our miscreations that we, as ego mind, have made even though we have been told they are made from fear and are the blocks to our awareness of love’s presence.

Fear and love make or create, depending on whether the ego or the Holy Spirit begets or inspires them, but they will return to the mind of the thinker and they will affect his total perception.” (T-7.VI.1:5-6)

We, as wrong-mind, begat the ego which then begat the self we made to replace the Self. This self is comprised of the atheist and the martyr which in my case, this time around, I, as mind, named Tim. Tim is a puppet of the ego as the ego is ultimately a puppet of the wrong-mind.

The ego (the self, Tim the puppet) cannot afford to know anything. Knowledge is total, and the ego (the self, Tim the puppet) does not believe in totality. This unbelief is its (the ego’s, the self’s, Tim the puppet’s) origin, and while the ego (the self, Tim the puppet) does not love you (as mind) it is faithful to its own antecedents, begetting as it (the ego, the self, Tim the puppet) was begotten. Mind always reproduces as it was produced. Produced by fear (the wrong-mind’s fear), the ego (the self, Tim the puppet) reproduces fear. This is its (the ego’s, the self’s, Tim the puppet’s) allegiance, and this allegiance makes it (the ego, the self, Tim the puppet) treacherous to love because you (as mind) are love. Love is your (the mind’s) power, which the ego (the self, Tim the puppet) must deny. It (the ego, the self, Tim the puppet) must also deny everything this power (of love) gives you (as mind) because it (the power of love) gives you (as mind) everything. No one who has everything wants the ego (the self, Tim the puppet). Its (the ego’s, the self’s, Tim the puppet’s) own maker (the mind), then, does not want it (the ego, the self, Tim the puppet). Rejection is therefore the only decision the ego (the self, Tim the puppet) could possibly encounter, if the mind that made it (the ego, the self, Tim the puppet) knew itself (its real Self). And if it (the mind) recognized any part of the Sonship, it (the mind) would know itself (its real Self).” (T-7.VI.4:1-12)

If the ego makes babies (little puppets) for the “adult” puppets those babies (little puppets), in addition to not being real, are also made from fear. They are not little bundles of joy. They were made to attest to, witness for the truth of misperceptions or lies we might believe such as we are bodies, we are not our Self, there is creative ability in matter and we have the ability to usurp the power of God among others. These misperceptions or lies we may believe come to us in the whisperings of the ego/devil which most of us then accept into our minds.

The Garden of Eden, or the pre-separation condition, was a state of mind in which nothing was needed. When Adam listened to the “lies of the serpent,” all he heard was untruth. You do not have to continue to believe what is not true unless you choose to do so. All that can literally disappear in the twinkling of an eye because it is merely a misperception (a lie you may believe).” (T-2.I.3:1-5)

Whatever lies you may believe are of no concern to the miracle, which can heal any of them with equal ease. It makes no distinctions among misperceptions (lies you may believe).” (T-2.I.5:1-3)

The Bible tells us that we are born spiritually dead. We are children of Adam, who having sinned or having declared his independence from God, attempted to cleave himself from Spirit. This could not happen because it is not God’s Will but we can believe it did.

Babies are made not created. These little puppets the ego made are “born” spiritually dead because they must believe as their maker does, that they are self and not Self, that they are bodies not spirit, that they are separate from God, that they are alone and that they are guilty, unworthy of love and deserving of punishment even if that belief system is hidden behind a tiny face of innocence. The only reason we believe in the “reality” of other babies (self, little puppet) is because we want our own baby (self, little puppet) to be true.

Your self and everyone else’s self are a block to love’s presence. They are a defense against the truth. They are used by the ego mind as testaments to the reality of the separation, autonomy and specialness. There is only one reason to believe that anyone else’s self is real. Because the reality of their self testifies to the reality of yours. It is a selfish act. There is no love or God in it.” (This is from our booklet The Advanced Course/Becoming an Apostle.
