A very common-place belief is that you choose something at one moment in time, the "change" is implemented at that time, and then you stop making any changes. It then seems that the effects that you choose are on a kind of auto-pilot, just carrying over from the past, as if you are not making any decisions NOW that are. . .
Let's talk a bit about this notion that all you have to do is transcend "what's happening" in order to be at peace. The major assumption here is that stuff is happening "on its own". The world is ticking over, events are occurring out of nowhere, no-one is necessarily responsible for making anything happen, attack thoughts pop into the mind. . .
Someone said to me that they do not believe it's possible to walk on water. The simple response to this is, you are unlimited and there is nothing your holiness cannot do. Your beliefs are your CHOOSING. If you want to believe something is not possible, it's not because it isn't possible, it's that you're CHOOSING that it not happen. . . .
Yesterday was quite a breakthrough. After making a video about immortality and writing a long post about how fear is self attack, Holy Spirit invited me to "practice" the ideas during a visit to a doctor. Usually at these visits (for another person) I pick up all kinds of anxiety and have reactions and fear thoughts. So what I did. . .
When you are a people pleaser, it means that you hide yourself from others. You do this by putting a mask or "persona", a facade or "face" over the top of yourself, showing to the world only what you want them to see. You present yourself to them as all smiles, nothing going wrong, everything is great, as if you're. . .
"Any split in mind must involve a rejection of part of it, and this is the belief in separation. " What is a WHOLE mind? A whole mind is at least as large as the universe. As Jesus states, "both heaven and earth are in your mind" and "you maintain the world in your mind with your thoughts". Realize that your. . .
"The mind, being sane, heals the body. " "The mind makes this decision as it makes EVERY decision responsible for the condition of the body. " "Sickness is a defense agains the truth. " "If you arrest the extension of the mind, it fosters separation and induces illness. " "A damaged body is PROOF the mind has not been healed. " When the mind is. . .
“Free will is the attribute of the mind, NOT the Soul. The Soul always remains changeless, because it never leaves the sight of God. ” "The Creation of the Soul is already fully accomplished. The mind, if it votes to do so, becomes a medium by which the Soul can create along the line of its own creation. If it does. . .
All of the course’s METAPHYSICS is based on perfectly clear, black and white, impeccable logical reasoning. REASON is the attribute of a sane mind. Through reason, you can literally SEE SENSE. What makes perfect sense is true. “The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. ” (something which is everything, leaves no room for anything. . .
When you are having true perception. . . . "M-8. 6. The body's eyes will continue to see differences. 2 But the mind that has let itself be ***HEALED*** will no longer acknowledge them. 3 There ***will be those who seem to be "sicker"*** than others, and the *******body's eyes will report their changed appearances as before*******. 4 But ***the healed mind*** will put. . .
"God's teachers choose to look on dreams a while. " "The dream says otherwise, but who would put his faith in dreams once they are recognized for what they are?" "Awareness of dreaming is the real function of God's teachers. " *****"They watch the dream figures come and go, shift and change, suffer and die. "***** "Yet they are not deceived by what. . .
"The world IS perception. " "The world you made. " Some people believe that they are just a little mind inside a little body. And based on this premise, they think they peer out onto an outside world, and "perceive it" or interpret it. They think perception is entirely this act of looking out upon the world that's there. As if false. . .
1. DUALITY - is the idea of "real opposites". That there really is good and evil, black and white, up and down, male and female etc. The differences of objects are believed to be "real" and a first-hand reality. That when you see these things you are looking at reality. They I really am my body, that you really are. . .
“Because He did not will to be alone, He created a Son like Himself. ” It was not His Will to be alone. And neither is it yours. ” There are two thought systems, one is God’s system, the other is of the ego’s system. God’s thought system produces Creation/Heaven, the ego’s thought system produces hell/earth. Both systems run on impeccable logic. . .
"There IS a wariness that is aroused by learning that the body is not real. And there ARE overtones of seeming fear around the happy message "God is Love. " Yet all that happens when the gap is gone is peace eternal. " Jesus talks about "a gap". What is that? Originally there was wholeness. A single complete something. And then the. . .
Sometimes what “the secret of salvation” reveals is not pretty. It very simply means you do everything to yourself. On purpose. Deliberately. That reveals some sometimes shocking and hard to accept truths. Such as that, if I am not at peace *I* must have chosen not to be at peace. If I am sick, I must have made myself sick. . . .
The "one mind" or "one mindedness" is the mind of the soul in total union with all of creation. The "right mind" or "right mindedness" is the same as miracle mindedness, the Holy Spirit's mind of atonement, a state of true perception, and the end of the dream. The "wrong mind" or "wrong mindedness" is the same as false perception. . .
One of the simplest but biggest lessons is learning that people are not bodies. And nor are you. The human body is an illusion which is bring projected by the minds of those who seem to inhabit them.
