Let your sleeping mind be reminded of the very important awareness that you are complete and healed and whole, and let nothing convince you otherwise. If you reacting to a situation in the world by feeling upset, you are reacting to something that is already over and gone. Only false interpretation is upsetting, and you have the power to accept the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of the world instead.
In this radical episode David Hoffmeister extends the message that, if you judge the world or yourself, you are not seeing with unified perception. In this case, you need to admit that your mind and therefore, the world, is cracked! Feeling guilty comes from this perceptual problem of duality; the belief that there is an inner and outer. The purpose of the Workbook of A Course in Miracles is to train your mind to see that this is not so.
The power of forgiveness is alive and ever-present! Those who have gone before us have paved the way. We simply need to keep on moving! Look closely and take responsibility for your state of mind. This is the way out of the personality-self.
One of the early ACIM lessons is, ‘I have invented the world I see.’ W-32. Everything in this linear world is a projection from the ego. When we perceive murder or victimhood, it is an attack thought in the mind, projected out onto the world. Listening and following the Spirit is the way to transforming the wrong-minded thinking into right-minded thinking. There is one problem, and one solution!
The Holy Spirit guides you through roles the ego made to unwind you from them. When you are playing a role (mother, teacher, boyfriend, etc.), you want control as a “doer.” As you follow Spirit’s guidance, you allow the grip of control to loosen, and move from doing into being. You are not here to take on a spiritual role. Instead, all roles are concepts in the mind to be undone with the Spirit.
