FED UP WITH PERFORMING A Course In Miracles The Old Way? Read This
The ego runs on the variety of predictable patterns because the basis of its thought system is judgment whose origin is due to sin, fear and guilt. Judgment is always one or another. As you perceive a brother through judgment, you will project and judge on that brother and soon you perceive the outcomes back. Once those results are perceived, you’ll use perception repeatedly to project and judge them even more.
Unfortunately, this uses both sides of the ego wrong mind and compounds the original error until the truth is well hidden. Handing over judgments for correction (forgiveness) stops the cycle.
The ego uses special love and hate relationships, along with specialness (being different), to help keep the illusion of separation going. Usage of these types of relationships as cause, can be the ego mind as cause; and the effect would be to continue separation between brothers because they’re in line with the original separation. Remember cause and effect: The mind you choose from, as cause, will result in the corresponding consequences (effect).
This is simply not about you needing to be alone or avoid relationships in life. It really is, however, all about the method that you enter and use them within the mind.
The choice which will set you free would be to elect to have your relationships be Holy Relationships. You must function as person practicing forgiveness in every of your relationships, even if you are the only one. It is “special” until you transform it “Holy.” To see another as a brother, a prerequisite to going home, is True Perception which shines a light of truth you both. The ego cannot prevail against Oneness because it is not real.
Form and Content:
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is very clear that form does not matter. You’ll find nothing in ACIM about behavior and when you judge a brother on his or her behavior, this is the same side of the ego mind. They may be acting from the ego “wrong” mind; nevertheless, you are judging from the ego “right” mind. To the ego, one judgment is equivalent to any other.
What the Course says is that content matters. Content is the mind. ACIM concerns itself with you understanding that you can choose the Holy Spirit Right Mind as your internal Teacher thereby producing a different cause and effect.
a course in miracles What you or another does in form (behavior) does not matter. However here are two questions to ask yourself:
When I acted, did I act from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
Is my interpretation of my buddy from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
You will not have peace if you don’t can answer “yes” to both. Choose again if you want to. It really is never too late.
There is ONLY 1 of Us:
When you judge a brother, you are using the ego mind as cause for that judgment to become a real effect. For this reason we emphasize that everything you see in another needs to be forgiven in yourself first. Here’s why: (1) You cannot see fault (judgment) in another unless you chose from that portion of the split mind in the first place; (2) You cannot judge everything you don’t already believe to be true as it is based on the actually chose from; and (3) Judgment about another is really a statement of the guilt retained in your mind from the original separation because you are choosing to utilize the ego mind. It really is where you are still holding onto fear and guilt instead of choosing correction (forgiveness) for the truth.
Absolutely anyone who shows up and provides you with to be able to heal your mind is really a gift you need to use. Turn it into a Holy Relationship. This is how you will return your personal mind to God, and how others eventually see it for themselves. Contain the light of forgiveness gives all minds an opportunity to make a different choice. Judge and they run and hide further into darkness and error.
A Call for Love:
Attack is really a conscious mind behavior predicated on projection, judgment and perception. The ego’s point is to protect separate identity and therefore, all attack is really a call for love, or forgiveness, that is joining. The more determined you’re to know the reality about yourself and a brother, the more you’ll choose contrary to the ego’s attacks and only correction (forgiveness) from the proper Mind.
Responding with love can mean many things and sometimes, it could even mean no response. Other times, you might need a boundary or even to take some action. To respond with love, you absolutely should be practicing forgiveness and using the Right Mind to turn total attack and judgment. The Holy Spirit will provide you with a solution if you completely turn compared to that Right Mind for help. “Completely” is the key word.
Eventually you see no attack (error) occurred which is to know the reality about you as well as your brother. There is absolutely no defense necessary (“defenselessness” on the Split Mind diagram). Once you share your willingness never to see error, you have shared what you want to keep and learn on your own. What you share you find you have.
Sharing methods to allow yourself to share with another what you want them to have. Your only reason for doing this is basically because it is what you want to have for yourself. You’re teaching them what you would like to be yours. Teaching is instruction of ideas and principles. Do this and you will find you have it because you’ve literally said, “Give back if you ask me what I’ve taught you.”
