I want to ask you by what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one the main book it covers “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds as though you will need one other specific person to be able to awaken acim. Therefore, I think I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS might be the relationship that reflects enlightenment if you ask me, and I in their mind! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you actually have to have another to assist you awaken?
I appreciate your time so much and thanks for the help if you ask me and others. I thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for the openness and your willingness to appear deeply at what is 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 world are always the focus of ego’s perspective, for this seeks to produce real problems and struggles in the world 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 it is possible to produce an identity which God did not create. The ego is this identity problem and it absolutely was Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it did actually arise. That one problem might be described as an authority problem or even a confusion in who’s mcdougal of Reality. Your brain that believes in the truth of the time-space cosmos has a control issue, for this believes that it can produce 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 a great example of this unveiling.
