I do want to ask you in what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one part of the book it discusses “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds like you will need another specific person in order to awaken a course in miracles. Therefore, I think I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS could possibly be the relationship that reflects enlightenment in my experience, and I in their mind! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you really have 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 appear deeply at what’s underneath these topics and issues. A Course in Miracles teaches that the split mind contains both the issue (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 product of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief it is possible to create an identity which God did not create. The ego is this identity problem and it was Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it did actually arise. This one problem could possibly be described as an authority problem or perhaps a confusion in who’s the author of Reality. Your brain that believes in the fact of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, for this believes so it can make itself. This ego mind also thinks it is 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 a fantastic example of the unveiling.
