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
Forgiveness has the power to truly give you everything you want. The world presents all kinds of problems, such as murder, sickness, and death, but it is actually the filter through which you perceive the world that needs purification, not the world itself. When you acknowledge that you are feeling angry, sad, or anxious, it is a move in the healing direction. Allowing buried beliefs and emotions like anger to arise is the first step towards authentic healing. “I can escape the world by giving up attack thoughts.” W-23
