As we lay down the scepter of the self-will and take up the Divine Will, we step into the borderland.
The borderland is a transitional period that ushers in Truth’s living thought-system, replacing the thought-system of illusions/lies that made up our embryonic dreamworld. It’s a mental, spiritual and physical transformation from what isn’t to what is, so that what appeared real shows itself to be unreal, and Truth’s reality is revealed. As we advance through the borderlands, life moves into the outer reality, as Truth’s divine potentials are expressed from the Present Moment’s pre-creative space. This movement extends the living thought-system established by Truth’s Living Voice from our inner chamber into the outer realm of consciousness, where thoughts transmute into experience and expression.
Once our mind receives a comprehensive understanding of the seven sacred truths from the Spirit of Truth so that it’s able to receive and give divine thought, it becomes a living gate by which Truth’s divine potentials are outwardly expressed. In this divine, inner awakening the mind no longer keeps the two opposing thought-systems separate as it once did while the living thought-system was being constructed, because the Life in the living thought-system is ready to be expressed. Therefore the mind, which expresses what it believes to be true, reaches the point when it takes what it now knows is true and pushes it into the outer reality, which it now realizes reflects antiquated, faulty judgments.
In this illuminated state, the mind no longer accepts the outer appearances as conveying truth, but knows they reflect an illusion built on lies despite the illusion’s seeming realness. Is this not the definition of an illusion or a dream, an experience in which our senses cause us to believe something is true that isn’t?
As the living thought-system encounters the thought-system of illusion in the outer realm of consciousness, Living Light reveals belief in faulty judgments, so that the mind can release these judgments and become an open door, giving expression to divine potentials. By displacing these beliefs with Truth, the mind pushes the Living Light through the outer veil of illusion. As a result, the thought-system of empty assumptions and blind acceptance that upheld the illusion breaks down. While we slept unaware of who we are and how we create, we readily accepted that what the outer appearances conveyed was “true”. We didn’t recognize they were illusions created by our own false judgments, making us the creators of the illusion. Now we know.
We’ve come to the point when we are no longer content nor able to remain in the shell. It’s during the borderland experience, between time and timelessness, that the blockade preventing Truth’s expression falls away. ALL the faulty, discordant judgments we placed upon ourselves, others and reality return to nothingness from which they came. As our attention and willful intention shifts to the Holy Present, which holds the ever-present Truth, our mind opens and Truth’s divine potentials are expressed, changing the landscape of our feeling world and reality.
The encounter of the two thought-systems within the borderland, in which Living Light invades and overtakes the darkness, manifests a monumental shift in creative energy, causing reality to turn right-side up and inside out. Reality’s creative source shifts from being created by a vast multitude of conflicting self-wills to being expressed from a singular point of perfection, the Divine Will of the Mighty I Am Presence. As all begins to flow from one, perfect Source, the harmonious and eternal expansion of Life commences with the experience of frictional energy inherent in change. This disruptive energetic atmosphere is the beginning of creation’s birth into the expression of its Creator and the experience of Absolute Truth.
The borderland is the pre-creative experience of this divine thought:
Mighty I Am Presence, You are my highest thought and my highest thought reflects Your thought of me.
