I wish 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 will need another specific person in order to awaken a course in miracles. Therefore, I believe I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS could be the partnership that reflects enlightenment if you ask me, and I for them! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you really need another to help you awaken?
I appreciate your time so much and many thanks for the help if you ask me and others. I many thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for the 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 issue (the ego) and the Solution (the Holy Spirit). When they are brought together, only One remains.
Your body and the entire world are always the focus of ego’s perspective, because of it seeks to make real problems and struggles in the world and to prevent 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 make 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. This 1 problem could be described being an authority problem or perhaps a confusion in who’s the author of Reality. Your brain that believes in the fact of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, because of it believes that 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 fantastic example with this unveiling.
