Lesson 183 – Just call me God

‘I call upon God’s Name and on my own.’

God’s name is holy, but no holier than yours. To call upon His Name is but to call upon your own. A father gives his son his name, and thus identifies the son with him. His brothers share his name, and thus they are united in a bond to which they turn for their identity. Your Father’s Name reminds you who you are, even within a world that does not know; even though you have not remembered it.

Repeat God’s Name, and you acknowledge him as sole Creator of reality. And you acknowledge also that His Son is part of Him, creating in His name.

I went for a run after reading this lesson, and, as my mp3 player is broken, was forced to find that stillness recommended from yesterday’s lesson. In that space I grappled with the fact that I am the same as God, that there is nothing in my life, nothing that I see, hear, touch, taste, smell and experience in every other way, that I did not create.

It make me look at all my relationships, the ones I’ve deemed successful and the ones I’ve perceived as failures. I was able to see how I’ve created all of them to help me experience the things I’m in this body to experience.

The holographic nature of the world I move around in stays with me. The game like quality of this physical world leads me to see all the people in my life as avatars that I have created. To this one I gave these qualities, so that I could learn from them certain lessons. When I’d learned the lessons I created another avatar with different qualities, and so on. I therefore cannot blame anyone for anything. If they moved me to anger, its because I wanted the experience of anger. The same goes for disappointment, resentment, anguish, loss and all the other fear-driven negative emotions I have or continue to experience.

These lessons, and the David Icke book Remember, Remember, Remember, where and who you are, are constant reminders that if the car is the world, I am the driver, I can take the car where I want it to go, its not the other way round. Now here’s the BIG thing. THIS IS A MASSIVE RESPONSIBILITY. Interesting too that all prayers to God, becomes prayers to myself. I tested it out with my daily prayer; the bold version is me as God, as co-creator.

Dear God, I give you this morning
Dear Predencia, I give you this morning

Please take away my despair of yesterday
Take away your despair of yesterday

Help me to forgive the things that caused me pain and would keep me bound
Forgive yourself the things that caused you pain and would keep you bound

Help me to begin again
Begin again

Please bless my path and illuminate my mind
Bless your path and illuminate your mind

I surrender to you the day ahead
Surrender to the day ahead

Please bless every person and situation I will encounter
Bless every person and situation you encounter

Make me who you would have me be, that I might do as you would have me do
Be who you are, and do as you will

Please enter my heart and remove all anger fear and pain
Remove all anger, fear and pain from your heart

Renew my soul, and free my spirit
Renew your soul, free your spirit

Thank you God for this day
Thank yourself for this day

I am blown away with the enormity of it. This could be a very challenging way to live.
