This is a clip from the May/June 2010 retreat at the Living Miracles Monastery on choosing the miracle, which is a happy, peaceful state of mind no matter what seems to be going on.
Dreamer of the Dream
Let It Be Given
Letting go of control and letting everything be given by Spirit is a radical life change. It is as radical as learning to breath liquid oxygen. You will experience periods of disorientation and come out soaring. The Course prepares you for being miracle-minded, even helping you remove the special relationship. Every miracle reinforces the awareness that life is but a dream.
Some of us have read philosophies that would say to “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative,” but we must go much deeper in the mind in order to see that the ego invented both the “negative” AND the “positive.” The “good” also needs to be forgiven along with the “bad,” since both come from the dualistic perception of the ego. When we judge things as positive or negative, it’s just making duality, and therefore separation, real. Love is beyond it all.
How Do You Heal Sickness
How do you heal sickness? You have to go so deeply within in joining with the Spirit that you actually see the impossibility of sickness. How do you do that? First of all, if this world is a projection, the problem is not on the screen; you have to get it off the screen. Sickness is not specific, it is MENTAL. When you have brought it back to the mind you are ready for the next step: Atonement, salvation, resurrection.
