Chapter 3: The Godself
An excerpt from You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey of Self-Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy by James Blanchard Cisneros.
Truth is. Like you, it is changeless and eternal. However, the vehicle that you use to remember it might differ from that of your brother or sister. The words and feelings that will trigger the recognition of your Godself will probably differ from those that will trigger the same recognition in your brothers and sisters.
You honor your brother and sister by acknowledging that the choices they make within the illusion will assist them in their removal from the illusion. Trust this one thought, and respond with unconditional and uncompromising love toward your brother and sister. Know full well that these choices are bringing them out of their illusions. Belief in this one thought will save you years of judgment, resentment and pain.
Keep in mind that this vehicle, the idea that there is a process that you need to go through to awaken, is in and of itself a creation of the ego, and thus an illusion. Yet, as is the case with all illusions, its only value lies in recognizing that it is an illusion and nothing else. You are already awake. You are already complete and whole. You are truth and love. And you are the perfect expression of the mind of God. The truth of who you are, your Godself, is already in you, and it is well aware of itself.
But what use does a vehicle have once you realize that you are on a journey without distance to a place you have never left? Love is who you are, have always been and will always be. Peace of mind and joy are natural expressions of love. When you extend your natural self, peace of mind and joy are manifested, experienced, shared and enjoyed.
There is a sameness within all of us; this sameness is the expression of God. When truth is expressed through this vehicle, you cannot not be heard. When truth is expressed through love, the sameness in all of us awakens, the fog of forgetfulness is lifted and the spirit shines. When you extend your natural self, the rebirth of light illuminates all it comes upon; joy and peace are once again reflected, manifested and experienced.
This book, that you have chosen to pick up, will trigger some of these moments of recognition. I say this with confidence, because it is my belief that it is not by chance that you are reading this sentence. It is my honor that you have chosen to experience this book, and it is in gratitude, humility and love that I offer it. To be a small part in your remembering process fills me with great joy.
