Does A Course in Miracles Teach That I Desire a Holy Relationship in Order to Awaken?
I do want to ask you by what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one the main book it talks about “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds like you will need another specific person to be able to awaken what is 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 for them! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you actually need 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 problem (the ego) and the Solution (the Holy Spirit). When they are brought together, only One remains.
Your body and the world are always the focus of ego’s perspective, because of it 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 product of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief that it’s possible to produce an identity which God did not create. The ego is this identity problem and it had been Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it appeared to arise. That one problem could possibly be described as 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 get a grip on issue, because of it believes so it can cause itself. This ego mind also thinks it is in competition with God, although that 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 with this unveiling.
