“Chaotic and contradictory beliefs commit identity theft, giving matter the identity of Mind.” 21st Century Science and Health, 3rd edition, page 202.
Identity Theft is a crime in which an imposter obtains key pieces of personal information and uses them for their own personal gain. Identity Theft can be a nightmare, therefore people take measures to keep their privacy; however, while we take measures to protect ourselves, we must be careful not to become isolated, because isolation and loneliness will steal the identity of all-present Mind and cause us to spend too much time on the defense.
Don’t be intimidated by beliefs. Fearlessly stick to what you know is true, God’s identity is one, is good, and is manifest as Us. Don’t give human authoritarianism, time, idleness, or vanity the identity of God.
What are some of the ways identity theft occurs?
- The belief of good and evil impersonates spiritual being to further human mortals as God’s child.
- The beliefs of sickness and depression steal the identity of Life, God, to give themselves an appearance of life.
- The belief of inferiority or superiority imitates the allness and oneness of God to exact a human status-quo.
- The beliefs of infatuation or hate mimics all-present Love to advocate self-loving agendas.
Think about it: beliefs work subtly and can easily take us on a downward spiraling ride unless we stand protected by manifesting Godlike wisdom.
Ironically, an effective prevention measure can be traced back to the 10 Commandments when Moses felt as though God promulgated, You shall not take my name in vain. (Exodus 20) Ultimately, we can’t steal God’s identity and use it for our own personal gain or agendas.
Protect your privacy smartly, in other words don’t keep your knowledge of God private, but preserve spiritual knowledge by sharing it forward.
Gross. Yes, gross is the best word to describe the fallen hair I’m surrounded with lately, whether it be in the bathtub or all over the floor. Cleaning up burgeoning clumps of hair gives me the eebeegeebees. However, the gross factor short-circuits and the hair-balls become ridiculous because I am mindful of where all that hair is coming from. Our daughter, and her boyfriend are visiting, both of whom have prodigious hair. However, because we love each other so much, irksomeness never settles in, and we clean up after one another.
The hair affair has confirmed two lessons:
Lesson #1. Reasonable expectations make for better relationships. Unreasonable expectations serve as a wedge between people. Reasonable expectations are akin to spiritual hope. Unreasonable expectations assumes certain human circumstances will bring happiness. Reasonable expectations are affordable and collaborative. Unreasonable expectations are considered obligatory. Reasonable expectations are an offshoot of Love, Principle, and they are powerful enough to dissolve the unreasonable.
“Relationships are fortunate or unfortunate, according to the expectations it fulfills or the disappointments it involves.” (Science and Health)
Lesson #2. I need to hide my hair clips, or they WILL disappear.
I’m reading a very interesting book, The Empathic Civilization, by Jeremy Rifkin. The author entertains the idea of “a collaborative and caring world.” Rifkin states that, “a distributed, collaborative, non-hierarchical society can’t help but be a more empahtic one.”
Sutdies reveal that empathic sensibilities are reconfiguring the definition of human beings, not as self-interested beings, but as people interested in promoting good-will. Rifkin wrote, “The dream is an acknowledgment that one doesn’t thrive alone in autonomous isolation but, rather, in deep relationship to others in a shared social space.”
P.S. Yes, the book does have 688 pages, but worth a perusal. Have a happy day!
