Use this video to find a space of questioning within yourself. “A Course in Miracles” remind the mind of wholeness. Are you a separate individual body, or are you whole, complete, unified awareness? Comparison is an ego device for maintaining the separation. People accept the world with which they’re presented. You must question the world and the core ego beliefs underneath it, such as comparison. All education in this world is based on comparison. Comparison is a defense mechanism against Love. A mystical experience is an experience of no judgment, no comparison. Desire love.

You made the ego by believing in it. The ego IS the big bang! An experience (beyond the ego) will come to end your doubting. This will not be another theological concept. It will be an experience.

You can’t grasp “The script is written” (W-158.4:3) until the end of the ride. The ego has tricked you into believing in linear time to keep the mind guilty. ACIM daily lessons are designed to help you see that everything is in the past. Everything is the same. There is no hierarchy. You see only the past which is a false construct of repeating patterns. When you are ready and willing, you will experience simultaneity and abstract oneness.
No private ownership. Share everything. Shared bank account. These ideas are scary to the small-self that believes it lives in the world! The ego uses possession to organize images: “My arm, my leg, my phone, my money, my child, my husband, my wife.” The idea of possession and ownership is at the core of the illusive world! Love does not possess. Let go of your possessive ways. Possession is a cult of the mind. The good tidings are: Freely you have received, now freely give. Let go of possession of “your” thoughts and memories.

Be in touch with your feelings and be willing to talk about them. When you shift from attack to love, love is extended and comes back to you, drawing witnesses to love. It just takes willingness to practice. Don’t let the ego dissuade you.
Inspiration 5–10 mins, Attachments, Desire, Gratitude, Pleasure, Specialness, Theory vs Experience, Transcendence, True Joy
As soon as we value anything of this world, we have put an attachment and expectations in front of our love. The mind is so powerful, as soon as we want something from this world, the world will want something from us. Specialness is a substitute for this divine love. This is not a path of renunciation, but rather just diving into the joy we’ve always known.

Open your heart to love and start to feel that God is within you. Receive his gifts by listening to and following what is given. Meet those who have given their life over to the Course. Allow yourself to fall apart and come undone. The struggle comes from identifying with the self. Accept the gifts that are in front of you and surrender!

The body is part of a self-concept we could call “the doer.” The spiritual journey is a transition from being identified with the “the doer” to the experience of being “done through” by the Spirit in order to experience one’s Self as Pure Being. Trying to meditate your way to this state can be “tedious and very time consuming,” (T-18.VII.4:7-8,11) yet the willingness to be “done through” allows the Stillness to re-enter instantly and effortlessly. Such is the gateway to Joy and Pure Being!
