The correction lies in accepting what is true in YOURSELF, by bringing ALL that you are into light. (Helen fearful of writing next part.) Cacey was wrong about Possession, and he was also wrong about hurting himself. One of the major problems with miracle workers is that they are so sure that what they are doing is right, because they KNOW it stems from love, that they do not pause to let ME establish MY limits.
While what he (Cacey) did came from Me, he could NOT be induced to ask me each time whether I wanted him to perform this PARTICULAR miracle. If he had, he would not have performed any miracles that could not get through constructively, and would thus have saved himself unnecessary strain. He burned himself out with indiscriminate miracles, and to this extent did not fulfill his own full purpose, and was also subject to the Scribal error I mentioned at the start. The Disciples were also prone to this.

The answer is NEVER perform a miracle without asking me IF you should. This spares you from exhaustion, and because you act under direct communication the trance becomes unnecessary. Because miracles are expressions of love, it does NOT follow that they will always be effective. I am the only one who can perform miracles indiscriminately, because I AM the Atonement. You have a ROLE in Atonement, which I will dictate TO you.

A miracle is a correction factor introduced into false thinking by ME.
It acts as a catalyst, shaking up erroneous perception and snapping it into place.
This correction factor places man under the Atonement principle, where his perception is healed.
Until this has occurred, perception of the Divine Order is impossible.

My part in Atonement is the cancelling out of all errors that you could not otherwise corret. Whe you have been restored to the recognition of your original state, you naturally become a part of the atonement yourself. (Niina's: As to Atone is to Undo the Absence of Love, to me this passage means "Place love to where there is too little. Love those who have been wronged to atone the lack of love left by other's physical thoughts and actions.")

The soul is in a state of grace forever.
Man's reality is ONLY his soul.
Therefore,man is in a state of Grace forever.
