Use this video to find a space of questioning within yourself. “A Course in Miracles” remind the mind of wholeness. Are you a separate individual body, or are you whole, complete, unified awareness? Comparison is an ego device for maintaining the separation. People accept the world with which they’re presented. You must question the world and the core ego beliefs underneath it, such as comparison. All education in this world is based on comparison. Comparison is a defense mechanism against Love. A mystical experience is an experience of no judgment, no comparison. Desire love.
Worldly joy comes and worldly joy goes. The Holy Spirit utilizes all things the dreaming mind has made, including emotion. Nevertheless, the Holy Spirit knows these states and emotions are not the complete peace of God, and so He reminds us not to get caught in the trap of chasing niceties. They will be given when needed and go again when their usefulness is complete.
In “A Course in Miracles,” Jesus provides 365 Workbook lessons for mind training. Each lesson contains a specific thought to be used as instructed throughout the day. The ACIM daily lessons are replacement ideas for your ordinary, everyday, repetitive thoughts. Your thinking is generally stuck in the past or future. Disturbances can be approached differently through practical application of ACIM principles. As you advance in your mind training, you begin to use “The Rules for Decision” that Jesus presents in the Course (T-30.I) as a way of re-interpreting everyday occurrences.
We think that if we expose our feelings, especially the guilty, unruly, jealous ones, that they will come back to haunt us. But the truth is, this is the beginning of true healing. And at some point, one realizes that it is the only way. “How could I ever think that withholding or hiding these feelings could ever serve?” one eventually asks. It is the most difficult at the beginning, but rather than take stands for, or against, ideas of right and wrong, be honest instead and the way will become very clear. We will open to new ways of being and seeing while the old way begins to be seen as literally insane.
You can’t grasp “The script is written” (W-158.4:3) until the end of the ride. The ego has tricked you into believing in linear time to keep the mind guilty. ACIM daily lessons are designed to help you see that everything is in the past. Everything is the same. There is no hierarchy. You see only the past which is a false construct of repeating patterns. When you are ready and willing, you will experience simultaneity and abstract oneness.
Can I stop judging myself, other bodies, and situations? How can I stop judging when it feels so automatic? It can seem like trying to stop judging is like trying to stop a runaway freight train. Impossible! In the Manual for Teachers book in “A Course in Miracles,” Jesus addresses the question “How is judgment relinquished?” (M-10) What a great question! David Hoffmeister shares that in order to be free from the stress and pressure that comes with the thought, “I need to stop judging,” we need to become clear on our true identity.
With regards to the body, ACIM is very clear. “A Course in Miracles” teaches that the body is neutral. ACIM daily Lesson 249 carries the thought, “My body is a wholly neutral thing.” (W-294) It does not need special attention in any way. You are not a body, you are Spirit. As you give yourself over to this, there is a lack of interest in the body. It is all about your thoughts! You are working with Jesus and the Holy Spirit to clear your mind.
The ego made the world. All miscreation comes from the belief in separation from God. Forgive the belief in separation. See that you have a perceptual problem. You have had a major break with reality, which is psychosis. If you’ve ever noticed the thought, “I feel crazy sometimes, what’s wrong with me?” then you are becoming aware of the insanity! You are hallucinating. Pray to the Holy Spirit to show you, convince you, of the truth.
