What Is the Authority Problem in ACIM? – Issues that come up in parenting reflect the authority problem. The ego’s thought system rejects God as its Author and wants to assert its own free will, control, and authority. We are here to be givers. It is a state of mind that shares true generosity and holds the same loving attitude towards everyone we meet or think of.
Pulling the Plug on the Ego – The mind that is trapped in the ego is seeking freedom in the world. Do not attempt to understand or figure out this world. The Course teaches that “My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.” W-11 It is the mind that needs help and healing. To the degree that we do not define the problem, we can allow the Spirit to guide us to find the real problem (belief in separation) and real solution (Atonement).
What Is the Last Judgment? – The Holy Spirit’s job is to exchange the concepts in our mind and take you to higher and higher states of consciousness. He will happily use everything we believe in to help lead us out of this dream state. As each of these concepts is given over to the Spirit, we will face His Final Judgment, which simply speaks of our freedom, perfection, and wholeness! Other topics in this talk include reincarnation, true forgiveness, and the unhealed healer. Enjoy!
What is truly helpful? What can you really give? An unhealed healer is trying to give what he has not received. The alertness of the ego to the errors of other egos is not the kind of vigilance the Holy Spirit would have you maintain. The mind that perceives a problem in the world outside itself is in need of healing. The sole function of a teacher of God is to accept the Atonement for himself. The healed mind thus can share the healed perception and Christ’s Vision.
The spiritual journey demystified: Life can be full of mysticism and miracles, if you only let yourself be guided by the Spirit, step back, and receive every step when it is given. As you start to flow with the Spirit, your life will take on a fairytale-like quality. “A healed mind is relieved of the belief that it must plan.” “If there are plans to make, you will be told of them.” W-135
