The chakra system is not mentioned in “A Course in Miracles,” for it is merely another set of symbols that can be used by the Holy Spirit or by the ego, depending on one’s purpose. Used by the Spirit, the chakra system could be a helpful stepping stone in one’s journey towards getting in touch with one’s mind. Used by the ego, it can be a delay maneuver that keeps the mind believing there is causation in form.
Every symbol and image that you see with the body’s eyes is a reflection. When you look at a child, you can see the child as a mirror of your mind. Any grievances and limits you see in the child are within your own mind. If you are practicing ACIM and raising children, you see what is taking place in your thoughts. As children go through grade school and into high school, you can look at your own beliefs about authority, normalcy, education and success.
Enjoy this video with Enlightened ACIM Teacher David Hoffmeister. Filmed in Bryce Canyon, Utah, David descends the canyon as a metaphor for descending into the mind and shares his inner path to Enlightenment. This video contains teachings and music and nature scenes that inspire you to awaken in joy. Set to a backdrop of natural beauty, the adventure inward is made plain and simple and accessible. David uses beautiful Bryce Canyon to illustrate the journey into the mind that leads to the remembrance of God.
The devil is causeless, therefore it doesn’t exist. The world was made by the ego mechanism. If you can’t heal what isn’t real, then there is nothing to heal. Only God is Cause, and Christ is the Effect, and both are united in Heaven. Instead of seeing as if there are seeming causes in world and trying to figure everything out on the screen, take them to the internal feelings, following them down into the inner domain.
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.
David Hoffmeister shares how important it is to let the dark feelings arise in awareness so they can be released. What follows from mind training is the healing experience of inner peace and reflections of love in perception. David shares some of his miracles parables about the man behind the counter at McDonald’s and the holy encounter at the Midas Muffler shop.
