What would it be like to live in a state of grace forever? Someone compliments you, then the next moment curses you, then leaves your life forever. What if none of this had any effect on you? You simply stayed happy no matter what the passing objects did or didn’t do. The Christ Mind does not get offended. It is always content, always peaceful, always still.

The Impossibility of Duality
When you see the healing of God’s Son as all you wish to see accomplished by the world and by time and all experiences, you will know the Father and the Son. The world was made as a distractive device, and if we do anything to reinforce the duality of the world, we cover over the oneness that we truly are.
Jesus talks about the fragmented ego’s world, in which the ego wants you dead. “A Course in Miracles” Lesson 128 says, “The world I see holds nothing that I want.” Forgive it. He also talks about the real world, the happy dream. Lesson 129 says, “Beyond this world there is a world I want.” We need Spirit’s help to heal our perception and see the forgiven world.
The Authority Problem and Surrender
The world of duality has no reality. You did not make yourself and you do not create your own reality. God is the creator of Reality. You have no control over the world. Surrender your efforts to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The cosmos has kept us mindless, yet we are abstract Mind. Go into your divine Mind. Pain is a misperception. Be mindful. Face what you’re feeling and the belief underneath it; question it and forgive it.
Lessons for Going Inward
A Course in Miracles Workbook Lessons:
I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts. (W-281)
I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts. (W-23)
I could see peace instead of this. (W-34)
I will be still an instant and go home. (W-182)
Allow the darkness to come up. Don’t distract away from discomfort and it will disappear in the light. It is all a reflection of thought. Nothing in the world can stop you from being happy.
The Context of Special Relationships
The context of all relationships is egoic. All relationships start special. The Spirit can work with all things. The Holy Spirit uses your special relationships and when truth is reintroduced into them, they are used to purify the mind.
Using Relationships for Healing (Part 1)
The special relationship is a futile attempt to complete your self by adding another self. But completion can only be found within your mind. Your relationship mirrors what is in your mind. Does it serve the purpose of projection and blame? Or do you use it to help you identify your own feelings, thoughts, and beliefs so you can turn them over to the Holy Spirit?
