The sole responsibility of the Teacher of God, or miracle worker, is to accept the Atonement.
A clip, from the May/June 2010 retreat at the Living Miracles Monastery, looking at the metaphor of “the script is written” and freeing the mind from the belief in choice in form in order for the mind to relax into stillness. “Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” (T-21.in.1:7)
“Salvation” is for the sleeping mind. God would not give us the means of Awakening without the assurance that the plan would succeed. And we don’t have to save the whales, or the forests, or the planet. No rituals or holy relics are needed; we are not into spiritualizing matter. In 1160, the Cathars were a Gnostic group who actually knew all these things. They taught the same principles that ACIM teaches. These symbols of transcendence keep repeating down through the corridors of time until we finally awaken to Truth.
Do you ever notice depressed thoughts in your mind or feel suicidal? Spirituality takes the stigma off of suicide because you realize life is not of the body. The body never lives or dies. “A Course in Miracles” is taking us into a state of mind in which we see that hell, upset, and the death wish are synonymous with wrong-mindedness. Joy, peace, happiness, and clarity are all synonymous with right-mindedness. The important decision is who am I aligning with: the Spirit or the ego? You realize heaven is reached through the choice for life. Expose the valueless death wish and choose resurrection of the mind. Everything is the result of a decision, the outward picture of an inward state of mind. Choose a miracle!
Any upsetting thought is just a thin veil drawn over intense rage. Death is a decision. What happens to you, you have asked for. Atonement is accepting the correction that has already been given. Forgiveness is a life wish. The ego is a death wish. The prerequisite for accepting the correction is to see the death wish as in your mind. First you must understand that your problem is always a perceptual problem; you are seeing something that is not there. Once you admit this then you can accept the answer, the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The solution is never a choice in this world; nothing in the world needs to be saved; only the mind can be salvaged. Face your darkness, your belief in lack. You are worthy of moving through it to perfect happiness. God’s plan for you cannot fail. The world is escaped through life.
