What can we learn from stories about the Borg?

You remember the Borg from Star Trek second generation and Voyager. The Borg assimilated people who then became part cybernetic and all linked to the hive mind. Where does this myth come from in our minds? Let’ see. Who believes only in individuality? The Ego. Who believes joining in mind would be oblivion? The Ego. Who believes that loss of individuality would be a horrible thing? The Ego…..ding ding ding. In our minds is this fear of leaving the individual Ego state! In our minds we think we must preserve individuality at all costs! We will fight collectivism tooth and nail. We beat the Communists, didn’t we? We can beat the Borg. We can beat…….(wait for it)……………………GOD!!!!!

That is the original mistake in thought, the tiny mad idea that God’s Son could be somehow different from His Father. So let’s review what happened again. In quiet eternity where all is One and Whole. God and God’s One Son (a descriptive term for the “radiance of God’s Light/Love”) extend themselves in the spiritual universe (not this one!) that God created. For some unknown crazy reason the Son one day fell into a dreamlet in which he dreamed of standing outside the Whole and observing it. It had to be a dream state because there is nothing outside of the Whole. No part of it can get outside of it to observe it. In this little dream state of being an observer, a tiny mad idea crept into the mind of the dreaming Son that He could somehow be different from His Father. The instant that tiny mad idea came into his dream he heard two voices in His mind which commented on his tiny mad idea. The first one said, “Boy you have really done it this time. You have separated from God and you have diminished Heaven. God gave you everything and you have spit in His eye by this act of treason. You have committed a “sin” against God and the wages of sin is death.” This voice we will call “The Ego.” The next voice said to the dreaming Son, “Nothing has been done. Heaven cannot be harmed, nor could you ever diminish the Father. This is a dream. You may wake up.” This Voice we will call “The Holy Spirit.” Now for some reason we will never know, the dreaming Son chose to believe the Ego’s version of things and when He did he believed himself to be guilty, sinful and terrified of God. The Ego says, “You better hide from God really well because He is coming after you. He is going to hunt you down like the dog that you are and He is going to annihilate you!!!” The dreaming Son believes this, and in his dream, projects himself into a physical universe (The Big Bang) and as he enters this universe he shatters, splits, into zillions and zillions of stuff: light, matter, planets, suns, life-forms, and US, individual people. We are each a split of the original Son of God and like a hologram we contain the Whole within us! However, we have forgotten who we are and why we came here, thanks to the Ego who pulls the wool over our eyes with a veil of forgetfulness. Not knowing who we are and not knowing this is a dream, we protect our individuality at all costs. We (all of us together as the dreaming Son) “created” this universe and particularly bodies, as a place to hide from God. God is not even aware of this dream universe. Were He to be aware of it, it would make it real, which it never could be. God is aware His Son is dreaming but He is not aware of the dream! 

Now in Truth, we are all One Son of God and we are a part of the divine Whole. In Truth we are in Heaven in a state the Ego could never understand because it is nothing more than a mistake in thought. In Heaven, God and His One Son unconsciously flow through their spiritual universe extending the Love and Light that is all that is real. “UNCONSCIUOUS” YOU SAY!! Borg, Borg, Borg, beware! ROTFLOL 🙂 Consciousness is an illusion. It cannot exist in Heaven. Consciousness is the illusion of the “observer.” Where there is no observer than can be no consciousness. Consciousness IS THE DREAM!! It has to be! In truth, there is nothing outside of the all encompassing Whole which is the Love of God. Nothing is outside of it!! No part can break off and go outside the whole and “observe” it!!!!!! The Son had already fallen into the dream of being an observer and was therefore conscious. THAT is when the tiny mad idea came into His dreaming mind. The Son in Heaven could not have any illusory thoughts come into the One Mind! There are no illusions in Heaven!! There is no consciousness. Now try to remember an ancient state you once knew so long ago. It was not the terrible union of the Borg, it was the Love of God. Listen:

“Listen. Perhaps you catch a hint of an ancient state not quite forgotten; dim, perhaps, and yet not altogether unfamiliar, like a song whose name is long forgotten; and the circumstances in which you heard completely unremembered. Not the whole song has stayed with you, but just a little wisp of melody, attached not to a person or a place or anything particular. But you remember, from just this little part, how lovely was the song, how wonderful the setting where you heard it, and how you loved those who were there and listened with you.

“The notes are nothing. Yet you have kept them with you, not for themselves, but as a soft reminder of what would make you weep if you remembered how dear it was to you. You could remember, yet you are afraid, believing you would lose the world you learned since then. And yet you know that nothing in the world you learned is half so dear as this. Listen, and see if you remember an ancient song you knew so long ago and held more dear than any melody you taught yourself to cherish since.

“Beyond the body, beyond the sun and stars, past everything you see and yet somehow familiar, is an arc of golden light that stretches as you look into a great and shining circle. And all the circle fills with light before your eyes. The edges of the circle disappear, and what is in it is no longer contained at all. The light expands and covers everything, extending to infinity forever shining and with no break or limit anywhere. Within it everything is joined in perfect continuity. Nor is it possible to imagine that anything could be outside, for there is nowhere that this light is not.

“This is the vision of the Son of God, whom you know well. Here is the sight of him who knows his Father. Here is the memory of what you are; a part of this, with all of it within, and joined to all as surely as all is joined in you. Accept the vision that can show you this, and not the body. You know the ancient song, and know it well. Nothing will ever be as dear to you as is this ancient hymn the Son of God sings to his Father still.” (ACIM T.21.I)

You can remember. You are not a body. You are a Spirit and everything in the universe is the same Spirit. We all belong together, not as bodies, not in Borg terror, but in the Love of God which is the all encompassing Whole of what is real. So you, the little drop, when you approach the ocean of God’s love, are you afraid to join? Are you afraid you will be annihilated? Are you afraid the big ocean will dilute you to infinity until you are lost? That is the fearful picture the Ego wants to paint for you. Don’t believe it because you can remember! The fullness of the ocean of Love enters into the drop because the drop has always contained the Whole within it! Now is fear gone, as a vapor in the wind. Now is fullness come with the Love that you are and must always be. Now does the Father hear the Song of praise His Son sings to Him. Now are all illusions and dreams gone and only truth remains.♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Would you not remember yourself as this, rather than a body? In Truth we are Whole and in Heaven now. The Holy Spirit corrected the tiny mad idea as soon as it was made. All of time is a vast illusion which but spreads out the instant of correction into billions of years. “We travel only in dreams while safe at Home.” Awaken! Forgive, remember, surrender to the Love that you are and must forever be.

Amen.
