Section 9. What is the Second Coming?
Christ's Second Coming, which is sure as God, is merely the correction of mistakes, and the return of sanity. It is a part of the condition that restores the never lost, and re-establishes what is forever and forever true. It is the invitation to God's Word to take illusion's place; the willingness to let forgiveness rest upon all things without exception and without reserve.
It is the all-inclusive nature of Christ's Second Coming that permits it to embrace the world and hold you safe within its gentle advent, which encompasses all living things with you. There is no end to the release the Second Coming brings, as God's creation must be limitless. Forgiveness lights the Second Coming's way, because it shines on everything as one. And thus is oneness recognized at last.
The Second Coming ends the lessons that the Holy Spirit teaches, making way for the Last Judgment, in which learning ends in one last summary that will extend beyond itself, and reaches up to God. The Second Coming is the time in which all minds are given to the hands of Christ, to be returned to spirit in the name of true creation and the Will of God.
The Second Coming is the one event in time which time itself can not affect. For every one who ever came to die, or yet will come or who is present now, is equally released from what he made. In this equality is Christ restored as one Identity, in which the Sons of God acknowledge that they all are one. And God the Father smiles upon His Son, His one creation and His only joy.
Pray that the Second Coming will be soon, but do not rest with that. It needs your eyes and ears and hands and feet. It needs your voice. And most of all it needs your willingness. Let us rejoice that we can do God's Will, and join together in its holy light. Behold, the Son of God is one in us, and we can reach our Father's Love through Him.
And God Himself shall wipe away all tears.
Father, unless I judge I cannot weep. Nor can I suffer pain, or feel I am abandoned or unneeded in the world. This is my home because I judge it not, and therefore is it only what You will. Let me today behold it uncondemned, through happy eyes forgiveness has released from all distortion. Let me see Your world instead of mine. And all the tears I shed will be forgotten, for their source is gone. Father, I will not judge Your world today.
God's world is happy. Those who look on it can only add their joy to it, and bless it as a cause of further joy in them. We wept because we did not understand. But we have learned the world we saw was false, and we will look upon God's world today.

"And God Himself shall wipe away all tears."
As we learn to open to and receive Holy Spirit's correction in perception, we are led to see that a perception of individual bodies with separate minds is false. The sight of separation comes from belief in separation. With belief in separation comes guilt and fear. Guilt and fear bring tears or the experience of lack and loss.
As we learn to undo this belief in separation with the help of our true Self, the tears are wiped away because we see that the separation we believed in is false and never happened. We see that these images of separation just came from false ideas. We quietly lay them down and no longer desire them or want to see them.
As we continue the process of laying down all our false beliefs that stem from the false idea of separation, our tears are wiped away many times. We learn to generalize the correction in our perception to every false idea we have been hanging on to.
As these false ideas gradually recede from our sight, a new world appears. God's world is the opposite of the world of separation. God's world is all inclusive. There is a total joining rather than division or separate factions. Differences fall away.
This is where we are now -- letting the false ideas fall away with Holy Spirit leading the way. As we continue to be led to God's world, we dream a new dream, one that leads to the end of all dreams.
Today I would practice being mindful of whose hand I am holding, the ego's or the Holy Spirit's. Am I seeing through the eyes of separation or seeing through the eyes of the Holy Spirit, Who always brings me to perceiving oneness? If I am holding the ego's hand, I will focus on differences, conflict and lack. If I am holding Holy Spirit's hand I will feel the peace and joy of recognizing the Spirit of God behind all forms, the abundance and joy of God behind this physical world.
Today I will practice joining with Holy Spirit in laying down the dream of separation and recognizing God's world.
It is important not to confuse God's world with the world we are used to seeing with the body's eyes. Because God Himself is formless, being Love and nothing else, there can be no forms in His world. God's world is Heaven, where all is joined in one eternal Love.
As long as we judge, we cannot know this world, for judgment requires division and separation. We experience the world of form because we have rejected or judged against God's oneness. Having rejected our Source, which means we have rejected Love, sadness and depression are inevitable. It is impossible to be happy when we believe we are cut off from Love. It is not God Who has cut us off. It is we who have denied His Love.
The judgment against God's Love has led to the perception of a world of judgment. All things are separated by some distinction. It is only through differences that we are able to distinguish one form from another. In this world we believe that judgment is essential for survival. We spend many years in training ourselves how to judge correctly so that we will be safe and be able to survive. We learn about history so that we can be more effective judges in the present.
While we believe we are in this world of forms, judgment is necessary, But it is important for us to learn a new way of judging that is not of this world if we are to escape the fearful dream of separation. We learn this new way of judging from the Holy Spirit. His judgment is simple. He knows that everything is either real or unreal, and what is unreal can have no effect.
As we learn to follow His lead and let Him judge on our behalf, He leads us to the edge of judgment. Here we stand and make our final judgment, in which we recognize that we are innocent, along with all that lives. When this is fully recognized without exception, we are free to take God's Hand as He lifts us gently into His world, where judgment never existed. There are no tears here, for there is no loss. In God's world there is only the eternal extension of Love and the joy that comes from giving and receiving with All That Is.
Today I would take the Holy Spirit's hand and let Him guide all my thoughts. I would let Him judge all things on my behalf so that I may learn to see the innocence He sees. Thus will I forgive the world and relinquish all judgment, for I desire with all my heart to know God's world.
