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 always one or the other. As you perceive a brother through judgment, you’ll project and judge on that brother until you perceive the results back. Once those results are perceived, you’ll use perception repeatedly to project and judge them even more.
Unfortunately, this uses both sides of the ego wrong mind and compounds the initial error until the facts are well hidden. Handing over judgments for correction (forgiveness) stops the cycle.
The ego uses special love and hate relationships, and also specialness (being different), to keep the illusion of separation going. Usage of these kind of relationships as cause, is also the ego mind as cause; and the effect would be to continue separation between brothers because they’re in line with the original separation. Remember cause and effect: The mind you choose from, as cause, can lead to the corresponding consequences (effect).
This is simply not about you needing to be alone or avoid relationships in life. It is, however, all about how you enter and use them within the mind.
The choice that will set you free would be to choose to have your relationships be Holy Relationships. You need to be the person practicing forgiveness in every of your relationships, even though 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 because it is not real.
Form and Content:
A TRAINING COURSE in Miracles (ACIM) is very clear that form does not matter. There is nothing in ACIM about behavior so when you judge a brother on his or her behavior, this is the same side of the ego mind. They may be acting from the ego “wrong” mind; but you are judging from the ego “right” mind. To the ego, one judgment is equivalent to 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) will not matter. However listed below are two questions to ask yourself:
When I acted, did I act from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
Is my interpretation of my brother from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
You won’t have peace unless you can answer “yes” to both. Choose again if you need to. It really is never too late.
There is ONLY 1 of Us:
Once you judge a brother, you are using the ego mind as cause for that judgment to become a real effect. This is why we emphasize that everything you see in another has to be forgiven in yourself first. Here’s why: (1) You cannot see fault (judgment) in another unless you chose from that portion of the split mind to begin with; (2) You cannot judge everything you don’t already believe to be true as 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 are choosing to utilize the ego mind. un curso de milagros en espanol It really is where you are still keeping fear and guilt instead of choosing correction (forgiveness) for the reality.
Absolutely anyone who turns up and you with to be able to heal your mind is really a gift you can utilize. Turn it into a Holy Relationship. This is how you will return your own mind to God, and how others eventually see it for themselves. Hold the light of forgiveness gives all minds an opportunity to create 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 demand love, or forgiveness, which is joining. The more determined you are to know the reality about yourself and a brother, the more you’ll choose against 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. Other times, you may want a boundary or even to take some action. To respond with love, you absolutely should be practicing forgiveness and utilizing the Right Mind to turn over-all attack and judgment. The Holy Spirit will provide you with a solution if you completely turn compared to that Right Mind for help. “Completely” may be the key word.
Eventually you see no attack (error) occurred and that is to know the truth about you and your brother. There is absolutely no defense necessary (“defenselessness” on the Split Mind diagram). Once you share your willingness never to see error, you have shared what you would like to keep and learn on your own. What you share you find you have.
Sharing means to allow yourself to give to another what you want them to possess. Your only reason behind doing this is because it is what you need to have for yourself. You’re teaching them what you want to be yours. Teaching is instruction of ideas and principles. Do this and you will find you have it because you’ve literally said, “Surrender if you ask me what I’ve taught you.”
