I do want to ask you by what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In a single area of the book it covers “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds as though you’ll need one other 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 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 time so much and many thanks for your help to me and others. I many thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for your 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 situation (the ego) and the Solution (the Holy Spirit). When they are brought together, only One remains.
The human body and the planet are always the focus of ego’s perspective, for it seeks to create real problems and struggles on earth and to prevent 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 create an identity which God didn’t create. The ego is this identity problem and it was Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it did actually arise. This 1 problem might be described being an authority problem or perhaps a confusion in who’s mcdougal of Reality. Your brain that believes in the fact of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, for it believes that it can produce itself. This ego mind also thinks it is in competition with God, although this 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 great example of the unveiling.
