WEEKLY MESSAGE FROM
SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR, NICKI WOLFF
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This month we are exploring “reflections” or secondary causes, so that we might understand more clearly their “tricks” and so move into more authentic and joyful lives. The Science of Mind teaches us that secondary causes are the thoughts of man, based in fear and egoic motives. These thoughts, as all thoughts do, move into the Universal Creative Medium and produce conditions that reflect back to the thinker his exact level of thought.

Relationships can get a little “tricky” at times and we always, as students for God, need to “treat” them with care, especially our relationship to our Creator!

I have been intrigued by the new movie, Gone Girl, based on a book written by Gillian Flynn. I have yet to read the book or to see the movie, but I have read great reviews and would like to share with you some insights coming from a statement the Director made about the movie’s message.

David Fincher, the Director, states in a recent interview in Time magazine: “What was important to me was this idea that we create these narcissistic projections of ourselves and use them to great effect in seducing the people we wish to see ourselves with, and that we sometimes lose track of the fact that that may be being reciprocated. What happens when one or more of the parties that enter into this agreement decides they can’t keep up the façade?”

This statement is very thought provoking. How many of us have been shocked by the apparent reversal of loving behavior by a loved one, or even of ourselves towards a loved one? My guess is most all of us! What Fincher has tapped into, is what he describes as a modern relationship dilemma. While it is a symptom that has been present throughout history, perhaps it is finally coming into our awareness as a destructive self-protective defense that most of us fall prey to in our culture. All secondary cause projects this defensive stance, and in most cases, hides itself until it wants to explode out in anger and revenge, wearing different masks as it does.

Eckhart Tolle, in The Power of Now, calls it the pain body, emerging from its secret hide away and going into a frenzy to feed for more pain. A Course in Miracles describes it as the special relationship. It states that “the special relationships of the world are destructive, selfish and childishly egocentric…The world uses its special relationships as a final weapon of exclusion and a demonstration of separateness.” Indeed, in my experience, and maybe yours, physical and/or emotional separation is the result of living our lives in secondary cause. Ultimately it is a problem of not remembering who we are in God.

Ernest Holmes writes that the world is tired and has had enough of suffering and pain. Inwardly we have the drive to come into Oneness and Love, which is First Cause. Putting our attention and lives into the realm of First Cause, the loving embrace of Universal Spirit, immediately causes unification instead of separation! We do this by bringing our reflections and narcissistic projections to the One, even if we don’t know what they are, because if we are suffering in relationship, we are in secondary cause.

Using the Law to our benefit comes with meditation and spiritual mind treatment. With that, our meditations and treatments move the Law to wash us clean of mere reflection, defense and suffering, and bring us fresh into authentic, loving relationship with one another. We find our true nature here, in the Love that made us. We don’t need to know why we suffer, for it is usually based in our past, personally or collectively. We just need to proceed to Love, and set a new direction of authenticity, leaving behind all defense, and never looking back into that reflection. It’s not real!

 Namaste
