Does A Course in Miracles Teach That I Need a Holy Relationship in Order to Awaken?
I do want to ask you by what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one single the main book it covers “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds like you will need another specific person to be able to awaken a course in miracles. Therefore, I believe I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS could possibly be the connection that reflects enlightenment in my experience, and I to them! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you really need to have another to help you awaken?
I appreciate your time so much and thanks for your help in my experience and others. I thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for your openness and your willingness to check 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.
The human body and the entire world are always the focus of ego’s perspective, for this seeks to create real problems and struggles in the world and to prevent the inner Healing Correction of the Holy Spirit. The ego’s distorted world is the item of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief that it’s possible to create an identity which God didn’t create. The ego is this identity problem and it absolutely was Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it seemed to arise. This one problem could possibly be described as an authority problem or even a confusion in who is mcdougal of Reality. The mind that believes in the truth of the time-space cosmos has a control issue, for this believes so 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 with this unveiling.
