hero worship

Make No Man a God

There are men in the world who can fix a furnace or a car or a tooth. And you accede a certain power to them. You give over to them. You pay them for the talent and skill they ascribe to themselves, and for the time they give on your behalf. It is a business arrangement, and what you are exchanging is clear.

Open the Universe

Others' thoughts are your doubts. Your doubts aren't your own. You absorb them from others. Others would put their definition of truth on you to uphold. They want you to uphold their boundaries, for their definitions are boundaries. All definitions are boundaries.

Give Up Hero Worship, Part III

Hero worship is giving up your freedom. It is giving responsibility for your welfare to another. That makes you responsible to another rather than to yourself or to Me. But they will not be responsible to you. They will be responsible to themselves, and that is how you allow yourself to be used.

I will use you. I will use you like a wand that swirls light as it is waved. I will use you for the betterment of all, not just for one or another. And I never leave you out or forget you or pander to your weaknesses. I don't take advantage.

Seek fame and glory with Me, no other.

Give Up Hero Worship, Part II

When your feelings get hurt, you are believing in what someone else says or does, and that is hero worship.

When you envy someone, that is hero worship.

When you assume that someone knows more than you, that is hero worship.

When you give your power away to someone or anything, when you take someone else's advice without letting it go through your heart, that is hero worship.

When you try to please another, when you try to make another love you or value you, that is hero worship.

When you try to live up to someone else's picture of you, that is hero worship.

Give Up Hero Worship, Part I

When you are not so involved in the events of your life, you do see its circumlocutions as parts of a dream. When you wake up from your dream, you see that all your beliefs were only wisps of dreamery. You have shoveled your dreamed beliefs of life and piled them up around you. And others shovel fast as well, and the dirt spills over. And so your dreams blend, and you think you live the same one, and so you do share your illusions.
