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.
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.
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
David Hoffmeister shares about exactly what it takes to authentically bring the darkness to the light. With purpose out front and actively asking for healing opportunities, you can heal and you can have that healing be quick! Take control of your state of mind, asking Holy Spirit to use the symbols you have in awareness.
Allowing emotions to surface supports the release of the stories of the personality self. Healing is available now, and emotions need not be covered over or avoided. The release of emotions can seem destructive to the ego; let present trust direct the way. Clinging to the false identity, which is the belief in guilt, is your only block to the healing miracles of Spirit! When you feel guilty you project outside yourself and want the world, people, and situations to be different from what they are. Don’t compromise your healing by projecting your guilt; step back, allow the emotions to come to the light, and let healing be your only purpose.
