What is time? This discussion gives the mind a different way to perceive time, relationships, and the world that eases frustration. The sleeping mind gives a strong emphasis on changing things in form. It wants to change people, fix situations, improve the self or the world. What if you were able to change your perception and become the observer? Time is the past. You might think of it as linear, that it goes in one direction. You might think that there is a future that hasn’t happened yet. The ego says, “no it’s not over!” The sleeping mind says, “the past is not over and can be changed.” The point of coming to the understanding that time is the past is that you can’t really change it. Once you begin to grasp that, you stop trying to change and fix it. You can move back in your mind into the role of the observer and stop playing the game. It’s an illusion.
Script Is Written
Let Love be your adviser in these matters, let Love lead you day to day, moment to moment. Ask for Christ consciousness. You are the Christ and Christ is not a manager of money! ACIM is drawing us into an experience of peace of mind and the desire for that experience must be out front! We must want this experience and trust that Spirit will use everything that comes our way for that experience.
Awareness of dreaming is your function! Through “A Course in Miracles,” Jesus is teaching a state of mind: awareness of dreaming. In this state of mind, you look on the dream as a dream without needing to fix or improve it. You are aware that a plane crash into the ocean is the same as a walk in California on a sunny day; a dream is a dream is a dream. There is no difference. This state of mind doesn’t even feel stuck in the dream! It is more like a lucid dream. This is a dream!
