T-6.II.6. How else can you find joy in a joyless place except by realizing that you are not there? 2 You cannot be anywhere God did not put you, and God created you as part of Him. 3 That is both where you are and what you are. 4 It is completely unalterable. 5 It is total inclusion. 6 You cannot change it now or ever. 7 It is forever true. 8 It is not a belief, but a Fact. 9 Anything that God created is as true as He is. 10 Its truth lies only in its perfect inclusion in Him Who alone is perfect. 11 To deny this is to deny yourself and Him, since it is impossible to accept one without the other.

Jesus states in ACIM:

I have made it perfectly clear that I am like you. and you are like me, but our fundamental equality can be demonstrated only through joint decision. You are free to perceive yourself as persecuted if you choose. When you do choose to react that way, however, you might remember that I was persecuted as the world judges, and did not share this evaluation for myself. And because I did not share it, I did not strengthen it. I therefore offered a different interpretation of attack, and one which I want to share with you. If you will believe it, you will help me teach it.

As I have said before, ‘As you teach so shall you learn’. If you react as if you are persecuted, you are teaching persecution, This is not a lesson a Son of God should want to teach if he is to realise his own salvation. Rather, teach your own perfect immunity, which is the truth in you, and realise that it cannot be assailed. Do not try to protect it yourself, or you are believing that it is assailable. You are not asked to be crucified, which was part of my own teaching contribution. You are merely asked to follow my example in the face of much less extreme temptations to misperceive, and not to accept them as false justifications for anger. There can be no justification for the unjustifiable. Do not believe there is, and do not teach that there is. Remember always that what you believe you will teach. Believe with me, and we will become equal as teachers.

Whether a song is from Steely Dan or Black Sabbath, the message can be interpreted as a call to awaken.

In every situation we have a choice – to see it as the world sees it or to see it with the eyes of Holy Spirit.

Today we discuss random things.

Actually, there is no such thing as ‘random’.

Everything is a divine choice made on the level of the Christ Mind.

What appears as ‘random events’ is merely lack of knowledge of their cause.

Steely Dan’s Dirty Work

I remember when Steely Dan’s “Dirty Work” was released.

Stationed in Fort Leonard Wood Missouri with my first wife Anita and my newly born son Adam, I was driving my green Ford Fairlane 500 towards the trailer park where we lived in St. Roberts.

Thoughts of recording and mixing were running through my mind.

“How did they get that sound?”

It was so cool!

Of course, “Reeling in the Years” was the big hit… but I loved “Dirty Work” for some strange reason.

I thought I was an engineer then. Now I know I didn’t have a clue… but I had immense desire.

What I lacked in knowledge back then, I made up for in desire. What I lack in desire today, I have replaced with knowledge.

I loved that time in my life… when Steely Dan was something I looked up to.

A standard to reach for and surpass if possible.

Then everything was recorded onto analog tape machines and there was a sense of urgency…

Humans were required to do every step of the process (not counting the physical act of recording).

How different was the recording process compared to today…

Now, humans need only offer their opinions to the machines. They do the work for us.

Perhaps, this is why music is not valued today as much as it was then.

Everyone has the ability to make music themselves. And they do… good and bad.

The fact that there is so much bad music out there does not seem to deter writer’s willingness and desire to make it.

Is that good or bad? Should there be a ceiling to an artists’ endeavors?

Back then, music was a special event… something of value, an education and an experience; a pinnacle.

Today, music is a side show; an after thought. It is everywhere. And it all sounds the same.

Maybe this is is only the ramblings of an older man who has lived the many phases of music’s existence in the 20th century.

But maybe it is at the very least, a version of the truth we all share.

For now, it is my ‘Dirty Work’ to share this with you!

All the best to you!
