I am ‘doing’ a couple of online acim courses… all free and I really suggest, if you haven’t looked into these… do… they are great!!!
And with these courses, I had a bit of an Aha moment today… just wanted to Share…
“You are already pure – so purification is nothing more than becoming aware of what you already are!”
There is nothing to let go of. Nothing.
“Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” ~ACIM, T-21.7
And this mind control comes from turning ‘my mind’ over to the function of spirit… for everything of ego is ‘out of my control’! My Only Choice to extend Love, the Love of God. I am the arms of this extension.
Really feeling into this…
Anytime I see something outside of me that will make me ‘happy’ or ‘sad’, I am in dangerous ‘mind waters’. I am allowing myself to be run by the ‘dream’, the illusion.
The only True Loving solution, to turn to God and seek, ‘What is this for?’… And the True answer is always not from ‘my desire’. That is how I Know, I have connected to Holy Spirit. There are NO Problems… except one… ‘me’ thinking sourced from attack, pain or pleasure. And Only One solution to this thinking, returning to Loving All .
“Preoccupation with problems set up to be incapable of solution, are favorite ego devices for impeding learning progress. In all these diversionary tactics, however, the one question that is never asked by those who pursue them is, ‘What for?’ This is the question that you must learn to ask in connection with everything. What is the purpose?” ~ACIM, T-4.V.6.6-9
Living this appears to be my current ‘function’. And what a ride it is!
Trust is all there is… lol… I am either trusting or not… I need not change anything… Nothing… Just Love that which is in front of me.
And an interesting note… The word ‘surrender’ Never appears in ‘A Course in Miracles’… surrender has been a constant companion so far on this journey. And I have really sat with this one, as the word does give me pause.
With saying it, I feel that I must give something up. And that just is not what A Course in Miracles is about… NO SURRENDER! There is Nothing to Give up… or change. I Need just to be transparent. Allow that which already is to just come through.
And my little ego based mind LOVED that idea… ACIM will never ask me to give something up!! I am finally learning how to work with ‘my fearful child’… I never need to surrender anything…
I just need to let that which I Am… Shine Through!
“Holy Spirit, Help Me to Love, no matter ‘how I think I see’…” … lol… Amen.
