Getting through tough times is something everyone has experienced.
We all have been down on our luck before and had to make the choice to either rise above the troubles that bound us or to simply give up and continue to live in darkness.
But when getting through tough times often the darkness begins to define who we truly are, it brings on more darkness and serious problems usually accompany.
Learn how the power of the mind, the Oneness of the Mind of God—the Light you truly are, is there to fulfill the life you truly want to live while in this world.
Your own ego-based perceptions are choices you make of what you wish yourself to be, the world you wish to live in, and the state in which you think your mind will be content and satisfied.
This is why the ego likes to judge a book by its cover.
This judging of others dictates how you feel safe.
It reveals yourself to you as you would choose to be, which makes the ego feel in control and leading to getting through tough times.
How to overcome personal challenges by more clearly understanding the subliminal mind:
However, ego perceptions always reflect confusion and indecisiveness, which keeps the ego holding the reins to separation and where getting through tough times seems what you’re always caught up in.
Does this make sense?
Look at it this way:
You are the means for God’s Will, which is your true free will; not separate, nor with life apart from His.
His Life is revealed in who you truly are.
The holiness that you are is the frame for each aspect of your Creator.
You and your brother/sister (every human being who ever existed, here now, and yet to arrive) are these aspects. One frame surrounding one portrait.
There is a radiance that shines through each body the ego cannot recognize. This radiance is seen by others who will accept it or allow their egos to turn away in confusion.
The ego, because it is confused, wants to hide the light and puts up a veil to keep it separate from the face of Christ.
Since you believe you are separate, Heaven presents Itself as separate too.
It even is seen as having a gate, to add further to its separateness.
With this separate understanding, the link that has been given to you may not reach you, and getting through tough times seems like a way of life.
This is why I urge you to seek out mindfulness meditation exercises.
God, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are One Mind, and all of your sisters/brothers join as the Son, and in truth.
Christ and God have never been separate, and never will be. Christ abides in your understanding in the part of you that shares God’s Will.
The Holy Spirit links the other part; the mad little desire to be separate, special, and different from Christ.
This linkage is very important, because it makes oneness clear to what really is one, as you and your sisters/brothers lift the veil. In this world of separation this is not understood, but can be taught.
(Please note, here’s a related article you may revert to for how to overcome the feeling of being trapped and how to escape the darkness:)
The Holy Spirit serves Christ’s purpose in your mind, so that the aim of specialness can be corrected where there is error. It’s what keeps you swimming, so to speak.
Because the Holy Spirit’s purpose is still one with both God and the Son, the Holy Spirit knows the Will of God, and what you really want.
Events will then start being arranged, and getting through tough times will be gone.
But this is understood by the mind aware that it is total Oneness, and so is experienced as truth and knowledge.
It is the Holy Spirit’s function to teach us how this oneness is experienced, what we must do and where we should go so it can be experienced—for example the circumstance that caused you to come upon this book, and the message you are receiving.
Regardless of whether or not you were aware of the Holy Spirit’s workings, you did experience Its message.
All of this takes note of time and place, as if they were discrete, while we think that part of us is separate.
It is apparent that a mind so split could never be the teacher of oneness, which unites all things within Itself.
Therefore, what is within this mind, and does unite all things together, must be its Teacher.
All of this can simply be reduced to a simple understanding, as A Course in Miracles teaches us: “What is the same cannot be different, and what is one cannot be separate parts.”
Keep moving toward everyday miracles in your life. If you can’t sleep, what you gonna do?
