Does A Course in Miracles Teach That I Desire a Holy Relationship in Order to Awaken?
I wish to ask you about what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In a single area of the book it discusses “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds as though you will need another specific person to be able to awaken acim. Therefore, I do believe I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS might be the connection that reflects enlightenment if you ask me, and I in their mind! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you really need another to assist you awaken?
I appreciate your own time so much and thanks for your help if you ask me and others. I thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for your openness and your willingness to look deeply at what’s underneath these topics and issues. A Course in Miracles teaches that the split mind contains both the situation (the ego) and the Solution (the Holy Spirit). When they’re brought together, only One remains.
Your body and the planet are always the focus of ego’s perspective, because of it seeks to produce real problems and struggles on earth and to prevent the inner Healing Correction of the Holy Spirit. The ego’s distorted world is the product of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief it is possible to produce an identity which God did not create. The ego is this identity problem and it absolutely was Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it appeared to arise. This one problem might be described as an authority problem or even a confusion in who is mcdougal of Reality. Your brain that believes in the fact of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, because of it believes that it can create itself. This ego mind also thinks it’s in competition with God, although this really is pushed out of conscious awareness. This unconscious ego thought system is exposed in the A Course in Miracles Workbook lessons, and for reference Workbook Lesson 13 contains an excellent example of the unveiling.
