ourselves to them just as the people of your planet may do.It is possible through meditation to totally reduce the illusion thatyou now experience that creates the separation-an illusory separation-towhat it actually is, a total illusion. We have been continuing to speakto you about meditation. We have spoken to you many times about realityand about love and about understanding, and yet you do not seem to beable to overcome the illusion.The reason for the illusion, my friends, is one that man on Earth hasgenerated. He has generated it out of desire. This illusion is useful.It is very useful for those who would wish to evolve at a very rapidrate by experiencing it and by using it while within it. Many of us whoare now circling your planet would desire to have the opportunity thatyou have, the opportunity to be within the illusion and then, throughthe generation of understanding, use the potentials of the illusion.This is a way of gaining progress spiritually and has been sought out bymany of our brothers.I cannot over-emphasize the necessity of becoming able to understand thenature of the potentials within your illusion and then, by self-analysisand meditation, reacting to that in a way that will express the thoughtthat generated us: the thought of our Creator. This was done by theteacher whom you know as Jesus. This man recognized his position. Herecognized the illusion. He understood the reason for the potentialswithin the illusion, and h I s reaction to these potentials andactivities within the illusion was a reaction which was expressing thethought of the Creator, a thought of love.Keep uppermost in your mind that the illusion that you experience is anillusion, that it is surrounding you for the purpose of teaching you. Itcan only teach you if you become aware of its teachings. It is said thatHe worked His wonders in mysterious ways. This way may seem
mysterious; however, it is the way of spiritual evolvement. There aremany souls experiencing the illusion in which you find yourself;however, there are few using this illusion to grow. They are not doingthis other than at a subliminal level because they have not availedthemselves through their seeking to a knowledge of the possibility ofdoing this.As you have by now become aware, meditation is always suggested as thebest means of attaining understanding, of progressing spiritually, and ofunderstanding the nature of the illusion and the purpose for which you areexperiencing it. Each person is involved in an illusion or game in whichwe may, if we wish, use our consciousness in meditation in such a way asto create a more rapid growth in personal evolution.But how do we bring ourselves to the point at which this process, whichoften seems very difficult, is grasped and begun?Desire, my friends, is the key to what you receive. If you desire it,you shall receive it. This was the Creators plan, a plan in which all
of His parts would receive exactly what they desire. My friends, oftenin the illusion which you now experience it seems that you do notacquire what you desire. In fact, the opposite seems to be the case inmany, many instances. It is a paradox, it seems, that such a statementshould be made and that such apparent results of desire are manifested,and yet we state, without exception, that man receives exactly what hedesires.
