Littleness Versus Magnitude

 “Be not content with littleness, but be sure you understand what littleness is, and why you could never BE content with it. ”

“Everything in this world is little, because it is a world made out of littleness, in the strange belief that littleness can content you.” *


Littleness versus Magnitude

Excerpt from A Course In Miracles Study Group 2009-01-24




To start Home involves your reaching outside yourself in one way or another, including something else that you’re willing to lean into or lean upon. And it happens when you say, “Help!” It happens when you reach out to the Father, God, the Creator, the Builder of the Universe, however you want to conceive it, whatever you want to call it. But you’ve got to break the isolation.

To hold your magnitude in perfect awareness in a world of littleness is a task the little cannot undertake. Yet it is asked of you, in tribute to your magnitude and NOT your littleness. Nor is it asked of you alone.

I have often told people, that the moment they turn their attention toward their Guide—once they know they have one—and they reach out to their Guide, they may know that their Guide has been waiting . . . waiting patiently for this moment. And the moment you reach out to connect with your Guide, your Guide is reaching out to connect with you. And so, you’re not doing it all by yourself. You’re no longer doing it alone. And it’s important to know this.

To be alone is hell. To be alone is a suffering experience. Now it’s not asked of you to do this alone. The power of God will support every effort you make on behalf of his dear Son, meaning you and meaning your brother—if it’s done on behalf of your brother—but right now it’s you.

The power of God will support every effort you make on behalf of His dear Son.

. . . or Daughter.

Search for the little, and you deny yourself His power.

Now, understand this:

God is not willing that His Son be content with less than everything.

 … …

It’s this sense of isolation, it’s this sense of separateness through which you look at the world and see separateness, that denies you the experience of your magnitude and denies you your experience of your Father’s Mind, which is yours, which is, as long as you are opting for an ego frame of reference, is held in trust, as what we’ve referred to as the Holy Spirit—hasn’t gone anywhere hasn’t left you, but you’re just not opting for it, which would be magnitude— because it teaches you from magnitude itself.

Every decision you make is for Heaven or for hell, . .

. . . it’s for Reality or for unreality—every decision . . .

. . . and will bring you awareness of what you decided FOR.

So … decide for magnitude. Stop deciding for littleness. And when I say, “Stop deciding for littleness,” I mean stop opting for the right to become angry with yourself for not having solved the problem of life. Stop being angry with your spiritual teachers because you haven’t learned what they were teaching yet and there’s not enough time left, according to the scenario you’re making up, the story you’re weaving right now.

Stop opting for littleness. Stop opting for hate. Stop opting for self-righteousness or just plain old righteousness. Stop opting for the right to have a thought about your brother or your sister that you enacted or created without bothering to join with the Father to ask the Father or your right Mind for the truth about your brother. You see?

Thinking for yourself, by yourself, is opting for littleness.

The Holy Spirit can hold your magnitude, clean of all littleness, clearly and in perfect safety in your minds, untouched by every little gift the world of littleness would offer you. But for this, you cannot side AGAINST Him in what He wills for you.
