The ego runs on the selection of predictable patterns because the basis of its thought system is judgment whose origin is due to sin, fear and guilt. Judgment is definitely one or the other. As you perceive a brother through judgment, you’ll project and judge on that brother until you perceive the outcomes back. Once those results are perceived, you’ll use perception repeatedly to project and judge them a lot more.
Unfortunately, this uses both sides of the ego wrong mind and compounds the initial error until the truth is well hidden. Handing over judgments for correction (forgiveness) stops the cycle.
The ego uses special love and hate relationships, and specialness (being different), to keep the illusion of separation going. Use of these types of relationships as cause, can be the ego mind as cause; and the result is to continue separation between brothers because they are 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 not about you needing to be alone or avoid relationships in life. It is, however, all about how 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 must function as person practicing forgiveness in all of your relationships, even if you are the only one. It is “special” and soon you turn it “Holy.” To see another as a brother, a prerequisite to going home, is True Perception which shines a light of truth you both. The ego cannot prevail against Oneness since it is not real.
Form and Content:
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is quite clear that form will not matter. You’ll find nothing in ACIM about behavior so 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; nevertheless, you are judging from the ego “right” mind. To the ego, one judgment is the same as any other.
What the Course says is that content matters. Content may be the mind. ACIM concerns itself with you knowing that you can pick the Holy Spirit Right Mind as your internal Teacher thereby creating a different cause and effect.
Everything you or another does in form (behavior) does not matter. However here are two questions to consider:
When I acted, did I act from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
Is my interpretation of my buddy from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
You will not have peace if you don’t can answer “yes” to both. Choose again if you want to. It really is never too late.
There is ONLY 1 of Us:
Once you judge a brother, you’re using the ego mind as cause for that judgment to become a real effect. For this reason we emphasize that everything you see in another should be forgiven in yourself first. Here’s why: (1) You cannot see fault (judgment) in another unless you chose from that part of the split mind in the first place; (2) You cannot judge everything you don’t already believe to be true since it is using the mind you chose from; and (3) Judgment about another is a statement of the guilt retained in your mind from the initial separation because you opting for to use the ego mind. It really is where you are still holding onto fear and guilt instead of choosing correction (forgiveness) for the truth.
Absolutely anyone who shows up and provides you with to be able to heal your mind is a gift you may use. Turn it into a Holy Relationship. This is how you will return your own mind to God, and how others eventually view it for themselves. Contain the light of forgiveness gives all minds an opportunity to make a different choice. Judge plus they run and hide further into darkness and error.
A Call for Love:
Attack is a conscious mind behavior predicated on projection, judgment and perception. The ego’s point would be to protect separate identity and for that reason, all attack is often a call for love, or forgiveness, which is joining. The more determined you are to know the truth about yourself and a brother, the more you’ll choose contrary to the ego’s attacks and only correction (forgiveness) from the proper Mind.
Responding with love often means a lot of things and sometimes, it could even mean no response. un curso de milagros Other times, you may want a boundary or even to take some action. To respond with love, you absolutely should be practicing forgiveness and using the Right Mind to show total attack and judgment. The Holy Spirit will give you a solution in the event that 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 help keep and learn on your own. What you share you discover you have.
Sharing methods to allow yourself to share with another what you want them to possess. Your only reason for doing this is basically because it is what you would like to have on your own. You are teaching them what you would like 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 if you ask me what I’ve taught you.”
