When I, perceiving myself as separate and ”individual” attempt to change “my” mind, only my story of being separate and different is affected. When I recognize that my story is only a different version of all stories, then ask our God Self to use my intention to change our consciousness, that change will affect all of consciousness because His Vision of me is as a part of the whole. Using my perception to change the way I see does nothing to free anyone from the idea that separation is real. But all change implemented by the God Self affects the whole consciousness because that is His intention for it. Our function is to bring the egos intention to Him, desiring the change but trusting him to make it for us all.
