Spirit will draw forth mighty companions with whom there is a feeling of safety to expose things. But this should be done with discernment, under guidance.
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.
The Holy Spirit knows what the untrained mind believes in. While one believes he is in a body in a world and dealing with differing situations, there seem to be steps towards the Atonement. The Holy Spirit knows exactly what steps need to be taken to uncover the truth of who we are. As we learn to hear this guidance and follow these steps we will be shown the way.
Resistance can take many forms. Bill Thetford was afraid to teach because he thought it would weaken him. So, Jesus told him ideas are strengthened as they are given away. And Bill did learn to extend. The unworthiness blocks must be washed away. Helen carried guilt about ancient mistakes so Jesus helped her to see that the past never happened. We are worthy to have creativity flow through us.
The pain of separation has been pushed way down in the mind and out of awareness. We need to invite what was suppressed back into conscious awareness so it can be forgiven and healed. To the ego it seems a painful process, but for true healing to take place, we must move through this darkness in order to remember the light.
A helpful video on ACIM daily lessons and how to use them! Going through the Workbook lessons of “A Course in Miracles” is a practical way to release your ideas about how this world sustains you. It takes our mind from believing it needs things in the world to observing that the mind really has no need but God. This makes things extremely easy. We’ll be given everything we need, not only to realize sacrifice is impossible but to see that true acceptance is acceptance of the Atonement.
The seeming outer world is a reflection of the mind’s beliefs. Wow! Think about that for a minute! Everything in the perceived dream world is a reflection of thought. Since the unconscious ego is a death wish, it is not surprising that there seem to be so many atrocities in the world: rape, murder, war. Underneath the horror of these apparent atrocities is an even deeper horror: the idea that we could have permanently separated from our divine Creator.
We must approach Truth through negation, not directly. We discover what it is not. Affirmations have their place but we must remove the obstacles to love’s presence. The ego uses the world to make “effects” to hide the Truth. But these effects have no real source and therefore they are not actual or real. Relationships can be fun with this purpose: uncovering the errors that hide our true nature. Hurray for everything that helps expose the ego in its deception! No private thoughts—can you dig it?
