Does A Course in Miracles Teach That I Desire a Holy Relationship in Order to Awaken?
I wish to ask you about what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one part of the book it covers “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds as though you need one other specific person in order to awaken what is a course in miracles. Therefore, I think I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS might be the connection that reflects enlightenment to me, and I in their mind! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you really have to have another to assist you awaken?
I appreciate your own time so much and thanks for the help to me and others. I thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for the openness and your willingness to look 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 are brought together, only One remains.
Your body and the entire world are usually the focus of ego’s perspective, because of it seeks to produce real problems and struggles on the planet and to steer clear of the inner Healing Correction of the Holy Spirit. The ego’s distorted world is the merchandise of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief that it’s possible to produce 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. That one problem might be described being an authority problem or a confusion in who is mcdougal of Reality. The mind that believes in the truth of the time-space cosmos has a control issue, because of it believes that 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 this unveiling.
