    不要不敢承认,整个牺牲观念都是你自己编造的。不要为了想要保护你自己而在没有安全的地方寻求安全。对于你,你的兄弟和你的圣父已变得非常可怕。你会为了很少的特殊关系而和他们讨价还价,你认为你在这些特殊关系中看到了一些零星的安全感。不要再试图把你的想法与上帝赋予你的神圣思想分开。当你把它们放到一起,并看清它们的所在时,在它们之间作选择就会变得非常简单,就像当你睡够了之后就会轻轻醒来,睁开眼睛看见阳光一样。
    圣诞节的标志是一颗星,黑暗中的一点光明。不要将它视为在你自己之外,而是在你内在的天堂中闪耀,接受它,把它当作基督时刻已经来临的标志。祂一无所求而来。祂不要求任何人作任何牺牲。在祂的神圣临在面前,整个牺牲观念会失去全部意义。因为祂就是上帝的居所。而你只需邀请祂,祂实际上已经在那里了,你只要认识到祂的居所是神圣一体的,而与祂的神圣一体性格格不入的任何想法都无法在其中与祂共处。用以欢迎祂的爱必须是完整的,因为神圣性的临在会创造围绕它的神圣性。恐惧无法靠近这居所,在基督时刻,祂看护着上帝,因为这居所就像祂所保护的完美纯真一样神圣,而完美纯真的力量也保护着祂。

    这个圣诞节会把伤害你的一切都交给圣灵。让你自己得到完全的疗愈,这样你就可以和祂一起去治疗,并通过和我们一起解救每一个人来让我们庆祝我们一起获救。什么也不要遗漏,因为解脱是全然的,而当你已和我一起接受了解脱,你就会和我一起去给与解脱。所有痛苦、牺牲和渺小卑微都将在我们的关系中消失,这关系就像我们与我们圣父的关系一样纯真,一样有力。痛苦会被带到我们面前,并在我们面前消失,没有了痛苦,就不可能有任何牺牲。而没有了牺牲,就必定有爱的存在。
    如果你相信牺牲就是爱,那你就一定会认识到,牺牲就是与爱分离。因为牺牲会带来有罪,正如爱会带来平安一样。有罪是牺牲的先决条件,正如平安是你觉知你与上帝关系的先决条件一样。经由有罪,你把你圣父和你兄弟排除在你自己之外。经由平安,你把他们邀请回来,并认识到他们就在你邀请他们前来的地方。你排除在你自己之外的一切看似可怕,因为你赋予它们恐惧,并试图把它们丢出去,尽管它们是你的一部分。谁能认为自己的一部分是讨厌的,却又能安然处之呢?谁能试图抛弃天堂、把地狱的属性加给天堂来解决他内在的天堂和地狱之间的“矛盾”,而感觉不到自己的不完整和孤独呢?
    只要你把身体视为你的真实存在,你就会认为自己是孤独而匮乏的。而你也会把自己视为一个牺牲的受害者,这就使牺牲他人变得顺理成章。因为谁能丢弃天堂及其神圣创造者而没有牺牲和失落感呢?而谁又能承受牺牲和失落之苦而不想要让自己重获天堂呢?但如果你的努力是基于你对匮乏的信念,你又如何能靠自己重获天堂呢?匮乏会导致攻击,因为这是相信攻击是合理的信念。而只要你想要保持匮乏,攻击就会成为拯救,牺牲就会成为爱。
    于是,在你寻求爱的整个过程中,你是在寻求牺牲,并且会找到牺牲。但是,你不会找到爱。否定了爱的本质,还想要认出爱,这是不可能的。爱的意义就在被你丢弃在你自己之外的一切中,离开了你,爱就毫无意义。你愿意保留的才是毫无意义的,而你想要远离的一切却含有宇宙的全部意义,并且其意义令宇宙保持完整。除非宇宙结合于你的内在,否则它就会与上帝分离,而离开了上帝,也就失去了意义。
    在神圣一刻,爱的条件得以满足,因为心智不受身体的干扰而结合在一起,而哪里有交流,哪里就有平安。平安王子生来就是为了重建爱的条件,他的教导是:只要你不把身体视作交流的必要手段,即使身体毁灭了,交流依然畅通无阻。而如果你理解了这一课,你就会认识到,牺牲身体就是牺牲虚无,而因为交流必定属于心智,所以交流就不可能被牺牲。那么,牺牲又在哪里呢?我生来要教导的、并且依然会教导我所有弟兄的功课就是:牺牲并不存在,而爱无处不在。因为交流会拥抱一切,而在它所重建的平安中,爱会自行到来。
    不要让圣诞节的喜悦被绝望所遮蔽,因为没有了喜悦,基督时刻就毫无意义。让我们一起庆祝平安,不再要求任何人作牺牲,因为这样你就会把我给你的爱回赠给我。还有什么能比认识到我们一无所缺更可喜的呢?这就是基督时刻的讯息,我把它带给你,这样你就可以把它带给别人,并把它交还给圣父,是祂把它给了我。因为在基督时刻,交流得以恢复,而祂会和我们一起庆祝祂圣子的创造。
    上帝会感谢愿意迎接祂、让祂进入并居于其中的神圣居所。而经由你的欢迎,祂就会欢迎你进入祂内在,因为当你欢迎祂,你内在的一切就会回归于祂。当我们欢迎祂进入我们的内在,我们只是在庆祝祂的神圣完整性。那些接受圣父的人们,就会与祂合而为一,成为创造他们的圣父的居所。经由允许祂进入,对圣父的记忆就会和祂一起来临,和祂在一起,他们就会忆起他们所拥有的唯一关系,也是他们想要拥有的唯一关系。

    此时,新的一年很快就会诞生于基督时刻。我对你有全然的信心,你会完成你要成就的一切。你会一无所缺,你会变得完整,而不会去破坏。那就这样告诉你的兄弟:
    我将你作为我自己的一部分交给圣灵。
    我知道,你会获得解脱,除非我想要用你来囚禁我自己。
    以我的自由之名,我选择释放你,因为我认识到,我们会一起获释。
    因此,新的一年将在喜悦和自由中开始。有许多事要做,而我们已延误很久了。那就在新年开始之际,接受神圣一刻,并回到你在伟大觉醒中空缺已久的位置。这样同等地来度过这一年,让它变得截然不同。让你所有的关系都为你而变得神圣。这就是我们的心愿。阿门。

    Chapter15: THE HOLY INSTANT



    XI.Christmas as the End of Sacrifice

    1 Fear not to recognize the whole idea of sacrifice as solely of your making. And seek not safety by attempting to protect yourself from where it is not. Your brothers and your Father have become very fearful to you. And you would bargain with them for a few special relationships, in which you think you see some scraps of safety. Do not try longer to keep apart your thoughts and the Thought that has been given you. When they are brought together and perceived where they are, the choice between them is nothing more than a gentle awakening, and as simple as opening your eyes to daylight when you have no more need of sleep.

    2 The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within, and accept it as the sign the time of Christ has come. He comes demanding nothing.No sacrifice of any kind, of anyone, is asked by Him. In His Presence the whole idea of sacrifice loses all meaning. For He is Host to God. And you need but invite Him in Who is there already, by recognizing that His Host is One, and no thought alien to His Oneness can abide with Him there. Love must be total to give Him welcome, for the Presence of Holiness creates the holiness that surrounds it. No fear can touch the Host Who cradles God in the time of Christ,for the Host is as holy as the perfect Innocence which He protects, and Whose power protects Him.


    3 This Christmas give the Holy Spirit everything that would hurt you. Let yourself be healed completely that you may join with Him in healing, and let us celebrate our release together by releasing everyone with us. Leave nothing behind, for release is total, and when you have accepted it with me you will give it with me. All pain and sacrifice and littleness will disappear in our relationship, which is as innocent as our relationship with our Father, and as powerful. Pain will be brought to us and disappear in our presence, and without pain there can be no sacrifice. And without sacrifice there love must be.


    4 You who believe that sacrifice is love must learn that sacrifice is separation from love. For sacrifice brings guilt as surely as love brings peace. Guilt is the condition of sacrifice, as peace is the condition for the awareness of your relationship with God. Through guilt you exclude your Father and your brothers from yourself. Through peace you invite them back, realizing that they are where your invitation bids them be. What you exclude from yourself seems fearful, for you endow it with fear and try to cast it out, though it is part of you. Who can perceive part of himself as loathsome, and live within himself in peace? And who can try to resolve the "conflict" of Heaven and hell in him by casting Heaven out and giving it the attributes of hell, without experiencing himself as incomplete and lonely?

    5 As long as you perceive the body as your reality,so long will you perceive yourself as lonely and deprived. And so long will you also perceive yourself as a victim of sacrifice, justified in sacrificing others. For who could thrust Heaven and its Creator aside without a sense of sacrifice and loss? And who could suffer sacrifice and loss without attempting to restore himself? Yet how could you accomplish this yourself, when the basis of your attempts is the belief in the reality of the deprivation? Deprivation breeds attack, being the belief that attack is justified. And as long as you would retain the deprivation, attack becomes salvation and sacrifice becomes love.

    6 So is it that, in all your seeking for love, you seek for sacrifice and find it. Yet you find not love. It is impossible to deny what love is and still recognize it. The meaning of love lies in what you have cast outside yourself, and it has no meaning apart from you. It is what you prefer to keep that has no meaning, while all that you would keep away holds all the meaning of the universe, and holds the universe together in its meaning. Unless the universe were joined in you it would be apart from God, and to be without Him isto be without meaning.

    7 In the holy instant the condition of love is met, for minds are joined without the body's interference, and where there is communication there is peace. The Prince of Peace was born to re-establish the condition of love by teaching that communication remains unbroken even if the body is destroyed, provided that you see not the body as the necessary means of communication. And if you understand this lesson, you will realize that to sacrifice the body is to sacrifice nothing, and communication, which must be of the mind, cannot be sacrificed. Where, then, is sacrifice?The lesson I was born to teach, and still would teach to all my brothers, is that sacrifice is nowhere and love is everywhere. For communication embraces everything, and in the peace it re-establishes, love comes of itself.


    8 Let no despair darken the joy of Christmas, for the time of Christ is meaningless apart from joy. Let us join in celebrating peace by demanding no sacrifice of anyone, for so you offer me the love I offer you.What can be more joyous than to perceive we are deprived of nothing? Such is the message of the time of Christ, which I give you that you may give it and return it to the Father, Who gave it to me. For in the time of Christ communication is restored, and He joins us in the celebration of His Son's creation.


    9 God offers thanks to the holy host who would receive Him, and lets Him enter and abide where He would be. And by your welcome does He welcome you into Himself, for what is contained in you who welcome Him is returned to Him. And we but celebrate His Wholeness as we welcome Him into ourselves. Those who receive the Father are one with Him,being host to Him Who created them. And by allowing Him to enter, the remembrance of the Father enters with Him, and with Him they remember the only relationship they ever had, and ever want to have.

    10 This is the time in which a new year will soon beborn from the time of Christ. I have perfect faith in you to do all that you would accomplish. Nothing will be lacking, and you will make complete and not destroy. Say, then, to your brother:


    I give you to the Holy Spirit as part of myself.
    I know that you will be released, unless I want to use you to imprison myself.
    In the name of my freedom I choose your release, because I recognize that we will be released together.


    11 So will the year begin in joy and freedom. There is much to do, and we have been long delayed. Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening.Make this year different by making it all the same. And let all your relationships be made holy for you. This is our will. Amen.
