Have you been tricked into believing that the future is different from the past? Let your ideas about time be retranslated! The whole of A Course in Miracles brings home one central teaching. Much like a kaleidoscope or a fractal, this teaching might be said with thousands of different words, and in a thousand different ways, but the core remains the same.
Script Is Written
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 belief in separation is actually the belief in impossibility. The ego created the world. God did not create the world. You can’t connect a God of Love to a distorted perceptual world where there seem to be so many problems. We have a belief in the concept of duality. This is an error. This very error has to be exposed. We have to look at this error together and expose its falsity. This whole world was made as a giant hiding place. Duality is in the mind, not in the world. When the mind decided to take the idea seriously (forgot to laugh) the whole cosmos was created as a giant fig leaf to cover up the belief in shame and guilt. You have to look within and see and expose the shame for the nothingness it is instead of trying to project it into time and space. The problem is not time and space, it is in your mind that made up the belief. We need to release the error and realize that it has no consequence. The instant the error seemed to arise the Answer was given.
“… seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” (ACIM,T-21.in.1:7) Explore one of the most talked-about A Course in Miracles quotes: “The script is written.”(W-158.4:3) You do not have control over the script, but you do have control over your state of mind. Healing is of the mind. You made everything that your perceive with the body’s five senses in order to imagine yourself separate from God. The mind is reminded of this through many A Course in Miracles quotes, including, “Everything you perceive as the outside world is merely your attempt to maintain your ego identification,” (T-12.III.7) and, “Do not believe it (the world) is outside of yourself.” (T-12.III.9)
As A Course in Miracles teaches, the happy dream of non-judgment is the goal; not God. As we release our beliefs and see through forgiving eyes, the Holy Spirit will provide everything we think we need. As we let go of judgment, the Spirit will work through us in a very beautiful and joyful way! We will experience the happy dream!
We are often tempted to choose where it’s not really possible. Most of the choices we make in this world are of the same order, and the questions we typically ask make no sense in Reality. Choices become easier when we follow the Holy Spirit (Peace); we will feel in harmony and flow with life. Ask only one question in any situation: “What is it for?” That’s very different from the ego saying, “What are the pros and cons here?” A mind in turmoil is not an inspired place from which to make decisions.
David Hoffmeister talks about the need to let the Holy Spirit undo the ego and its false “responsibilities” by developing trust in the Holy Spirit.
Since nothing is accidental, it can never be said that change is real. You cannot say, “that wasn’t supposed to happen,” for instance. To say “the script is written,” means simply that all of perception is about the past. The future, too, is just a deceptive loop of ego thought. The future is not different from the past. All choices in this world are the same choice. Find out what is truly different. In fact, free will does not involve choice. There is no choice in Oneness. Ask only, in every situation, “What is this for?” The purpose you give anything is your only choice.
Only the thoughts we think with God are creative and have no form components whatsoever. There is no Holy Spirit’s script, only the ego script, and as long as the mind is invested in the past and wants to hold on to it, history will seem to keep repeating itself and we seem to make the same mistake over and over again.
