But there will also come a time when you will begin to realize that what you believe is yours is nothing and that it has only held the illusion of value. In this realization, you will begin to give willingness to see differently. Through your willingness, your sight will be changed. As you begin to recognize true value, you will let go of the valueless, because it is value that you seek. So do not be afraid. Be willing, and give Me what you can. In your gratitude for what you gain through giving, you will be willing to give more.
(v 31 - 34) Your understanding of what I teach will seem to come to you a little at a time. That is because understanding is the gift of willingness. As more willingness is given, more understanding is received. With full willingness comes full understanding, and then fear will be no more.
(v 35 - 43) The symbolism of the story of the blind beggar who received sight is clear and easy to understand. The beggar had willingness. The crowd seemed to represent fear, since they were fearful for Jesus to see this blemish-of-a-man within their midst. But the beggar did not believe their fear, for his willingness was greater than their fear. So his voice was heard above the noise, and the gift of his willingness was sight. And so it shall be for you.
NTI Luke, Chapter 19
(v 1 - 10) The world of form is a preoccupation for you, because you believe form has meaning. You make comparisons and judgments and decisions based on what you experience or witness within form. I tell you that the world of form has no meaning whatsoever. It is completely meaningless. Any meaning that you think it has was completely made up within your mind. And because it was made up, independent of God's meaning, it must be illusion and it cannot be shared.
The meaningless is illusion, for it is not shared. And what is not shared cannot exist within the Mind of God. This means that your meaninglessness, to which you have given meaning, does not have meaning within the Mind of God. And so this means that it cannot exist.
This is great news for you, if you will accept it. This is the truth that will set you free. For this means that all meaning that you have applied that determines sin and guilt and fear to be real is in reality meaningless. And so this also means that sin and guilt and fear are completely meaningless and do not exist in reality, for any meaning that seemed to make them real is only the meaning of illusion.
Within this thought, the past is completely obliterated, for all meaning that you thought it had, it had not. The sinners have not sinned, and there is no cause for guilt. And this is why Jesus can look at one who seems guilty and see guiltlessness. Because he does not apply meaning where there is none. This is why you can seem to be transformed in an instant of recognition. The realization that all that you thought had meaning is utterly meaningless brings freedom and meaning and peace to all that you see and experience.
(v 11 - 27) If the minas in this story represented willingness, then this story would be at least partially correct in its representation. For the one with the most willingness would receive the most through his willingness to receive it.
But this is not how this story was intended as it was written down. And so, this story is in error, as willingness is all that is needed in order to receive.
Let us look at the error that is captured within this story and learn from it by looking at it another way. Error is upside-down from the absence of error, so by flipping this story over and looking at it again, we will see everything helpful that is here that we cannot see when we look at it with error.
The minas are meant to represent works. So if we turn that upside-down, it must mean that one receives through no works. And what can that mean? It can only mean that receiving the knowledge that is the kingdom of God is an inheritance that is given you because of who you are without any expectations contingent upon the giving. In other words, the gift is yours to realize freely merely upon your choice to accept it by accepting yourself as one with it.
(v 28 - 44) This is why you cannot judge, and your judgment, when you make it, does not serve you. It is because the world is written upside-down. Everything that you see and perceive is the opposite of truth. If you see it, and judge it, and make it real for you, then what is real for you is the opposite of what is truth. And so, you have invested your belief in illusions.
This is the symbol represented by the story of Jesus riding on a donkey. For the world would not show a king in such a way! But through this ride, it is symbolized that what the world would tell you is not so.
You must be willing to lay down what you think you know and sing praises to Heaven for what is given. You must be open to receive what you do not expect.
(v 45 - 48) This is a time when you must be alert to the thoughts that have made themselves at home within your mind. I tell you, these thoughts, which sing the praises of the world within the temple of your mind, do not belong there, because your mind is the temple of God.
Rest with Me now, that you may see the thoughts that you believe, and you may also see that since these thoughts are upside-down, the truth must be their opposite. And then remember that only the truth is true, so in reality, it can have no opposite. -That must mean that the thoughts you think and believe can have no meaning in God. Their only meaning has been given by you to uphold your belief and investment in illusion.
When you see how your thoughts do not serve the truth of you, you must extend your willingness to look away from them as the meaninglessness that they are.
