The doer is the personal self and this self wants everything to be under conscious control. A Course in Miracles teaches us that, “Miracles are habits, and should be involuntary. They should not be under conscious control.” (ACIM, T-1.I.5:1-2.) There is no formula on how to undo the doer, it has to be under the Holy Spirit’s guidance. You cannot take personal responsibility for the seeming journey. You cannot as a person direct the undoing because the person IS the doer! Listening and following the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the practical application of the ACIM Workbook Lessons leads to experiences of peace and happiness, and that’s where the undoing of the doer occurs.
Alignment with Spirit
Nothing of the world can give you peace and nothing of the world can take it away. It is purely an intrinsic matter. You will always draw forth witnesses to what you believe, and when you call forth ego witnesses, you need merely call on the Holy Spirit to help you see them differently.
Every situation that we experience in the world is an opportunity to let go of the idea that we know what things mean. When we recognize that we have given everything we see the meaning it has for us, we can choose differently. Becoming still and receptive to the Holy Spirit’s way of seeing, rather than interpretations based on the belief in past learning, opens us to guidance in a very practical way.
In this talk, David reveals the practical tools of Awakening and how they are used to help heal our mind. He shares about his journey as a devotee of Christ, desiring only to be the living Presence of Spirit and to go wherever called. As he immersed himself deeply in the teachings of “A Course in Miracles,” allowing his mind to become empty of personal beliefs and expectations, he came to a consistent state of unified perception, the true experience of the happy dream.
Rest in your heart because everything is all right. It’s all in your mind for you to see as a miracle. The miracle is a shift in perspective. The miracle is contagious because we are all one mind. The world is a reflection of your inner state. Collect witnesses to miracles and you will be convinced.
If the goal is peace of mind and form does not matter, how do we deal with things of the world such as locking doors and taking out insurance? While we seem to be in the world, we are not asked to overthrow those laws but to follow guidance on practical matters. We don’t need to ask, “Is this spiritual or not?” These things are like props coming in to use. We need to be open and prayerful as to the use of the symbols. When we are tuned in and listening there is no problem.
To be in integrity, we must get in touch with the purpose beneath the things of form like watches, money, and lipstick. Look within and feel what is in the flow, what serves the sharing of the message. Loosen from past experience and come into alignment with the Spirit.
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.
