What Shakespeare Can Teach You About A Course In Miracles
The ego runs on the variety of predictable patterns as the basis of its thought system is judgment whose origin stems from sin, fear and guilt. Judgment is always one or the other. As you perceive a brother through judgment, you will project and judge on that brother and soon you perceive the outcomes back. un curso de milagros Once those results are perceived, you will use perception repeatedly to project and judge them a lot more.
Unfortunately, this uses both sides of the ego wrong mind and compounds the original error until the facts are well hidden. Handing over judgments for correction (forgiveness) stops the cycle.
The ego uses special love and hate relationships, in addition to specialness (being different), to keep the illusion of separation going. Use of these kind of relationships as cause, is also the ego mind as cause; and the effect is to continue separation between brothers because they’re based on the original separation. Remember cause and effect: Your brain you select from, as cause, will result in the corresponding consequences (effect).
This is simply not about you having to be alone or avoid relationships in life. It really is, however, all about the method that you enter and utilize them within the mind.
The choice that will set you free would be to elect to have your relationships be Holy Relationships. You need to function as person practicing forgiveness in all of your relationships, even if you are the only one. It is “special” until you transform it “Holy.” To see another as a brother, a prerequisite to going home, holds true Perception which shines a light of truth you both. The ego cannot prevail against Oneness because it is not real.
Form and Content:
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is quite clear that form will not matter. There is nothing in ACIM about behavior and when you judge a brother on his or her behavior, that is the same side of the ego mind. They might be acting from the ego “wrong” mind; but you are judging from the ego “right” mind. To the ego, one judgment is equivalent to any other.
What the Course says is that content matters. Content may be the mind. ACIM concerns itself with you understanding that you can pick the Holy Spirit Right Mind as your internal Teacher thereby creating a different cause and effect.
What you or another does in form (behavior) will not matter. However listed below are two questions to ask yourself:
When I acted, did I act from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
Is my interpretation of my brother from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
You won’t have peace unless you can answer “yes” to both. Choose again if you want to. It really is never too late.
There is Only One of Us:
Once you judge a brother, you are utilizing the ego mind as cause for that judgment to become a real effect. This is exactly why we emphasize that what you see in another needs to be forgiven in yourself first. Here’s why: (1) You cannot see fault (judgment) in another if you don’t chose from that part of the split mind in the first place; (2) You cannot judge what you don’t already believe to be true since it is using the mind you chose from; and (3) Judgment about another is really a statement of the guilt retained in your mind from the original separation because you are choosing to use the ego mind. It really is where you are still keeping fear and guilt rather than choosing correction (forgiveness) for the truth.
Absolutely anyone who shows up and you with to be able to heal your mind is really a gift you can utilize. Turn it right into a Holy Relationship. This is how you will return your own mind to God, and how others eventually view it for themselves. Hold the light of forgiveness gives all minds an opportunity to create a different choice. Judge plus they run and hide further into darkness and error.
A Call for Love:
Attack is really a conscious mind behavior based on projection, judgment and perception. The ego’s point is to protect separate identity and for that reason, all attack is often a call for love, or forgiveness, that is joining. The more determined you are to know the reality about yourself and a brother, the more you’ll choose contrary to the ego’s attacks and only correction (forgiveness) from the Right Mind.
Responding with love often means many things and sometimes, it can even mean no response. Other times, you might need a boundary or to take some action. To respond with love, you absolutely should be practicing forgiveness and using the Right Mind to turn over-all attack and judgment. The Holy Spirit will provide you with a solution if you completely turn to that Right Mind for help. “Completely” is the key word.
Eventually you see no attack (error) occurred which is to know the reality about you and your brother. There is no defense necessary (“defenselessness” on the Split Mind diagram). When you share your willingness never to see error, you have shared what you want to keep and learn on your own. What you share you discover you have.
Sharing methods to allow yourself to share with another what you need them to have. Your only reason for doing this is because it is what you need to have for yourself. You are teaching them what you want to be yours. Teaching is instruction of ideas and principles. Do this and you may find you own it because you’ve literally said, “Give back to me what I’ve taught you.”
