“A Course in Miracles” is about making your mind ready for revelation which comes from Spirit to Spirit. Everything in this world aims at the experience that the past is over and can touch you not. This world is only an experience of your mind, and is not apart from it. The straight and narrow path is non-judgment. Let go into the experience that all form is an image in the mind. If you see magnificence in the world you’re simply coming into the experience of your own magnificence. History and studying this world is really much ado about nothing and your daily experience can always be of happiness, joy, and welcoming. “The holiest spot on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love.” T-26.IX.6:1 Prepare for the undoing of what never was; take it easy and learn to laugh. In the end it takes Jesus to reveal the meaning of forgiveness and the real world to you and there is nothing you must do.
In your complete willingness to forget the things you think you need, Heaven can finally be remembered. True prayer is described by Jesus in The Song of Prayer as having many levels, like rungs on a ladder, which lead from the early forms of praying for specifics to more advanced forms of prayer. The highest form of prayer is what Jesus calls “true prayer,” which involves a total willingness to “forget the things you think you need.” S-1.I.4:1 For, “You have sought first the Kingdom of Heaven, and all else has indeed been given you.” S-1.I.3:6 Pray only to serve God’s Will.
A Course in Miracles teaches: “You have but two emotions, love and fear.” T-13.V.1 Ultimately the only thing we are afraid of, is Love. The ego would have you believe that there are other, specific things in the world to fear, because it wants to protect itself from being exposed to the light of truth: the things it wants you to fear are actually just distractions to keep you from the awareness of your desire for God. Under the Spirit’s Guidance, miracles occur absolutely involuntarily; every person, every place, and every situation will be used for the healing of your mind.
The body cannot be sick nor healthy! David Hoffmeister goes deeply into the ideas behind the “ordering of thoughts”, explaining clearly the difference between the ego’s thoughts and God’s Thoughts.
Guidance is the Holy Spirit’s use of judgment. Our judgments are not true and never have been true. Jesus points out in the Course that, “I do not perceive my own best interests” (W-24), and “Everything is for your own best interests.” W-pI.25.1:5 It is a fundamental perceptual problem to break everything into situations. You can control the direction of your thinking and have it aligned with the Holy Spirit. In that lies your salvation, joy, and happiness.
