Fundamental Shifts

As you forgive, there will be fundamental shifts that will be taking place in your unconscious mind, and eventually your experience will start to change. You'll gradually shift from the experience of being a body to the experience of being what you really are, which is love, or pure spirit, which in the Course are synonymous, because at the level of spirit they are exactly the same as God. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One   Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

Forgiveness Releases People

True forgiveness releases people because they haven't really done anything, because you're the one who made them up in the first place. What you're seeing is YOUR projection of a universe of time and space. You've taken responsibility for making it up, not in a bad way but in a powerful way. Now you're coming from cause and not effect. This is the thought reversal that the Course is talking about.

Forgive the Bastards

I used to think it would take a tremendous amount of work to forgive the world like J did. But what I'v learned more and more as I go along is that it actually takes more time to judge people than it does to forgive them! I mean, you you go along, forgiveness becomes so much a part of you that eventually you won't have to think about it as much. It will become more and more automatic. So the amount of time it takes to do it decreases over the years. But you spend your time judging people, now you have to make up some story about about why they're not worthy of your forgiveness. It would take less time to just forgive the bastards. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One  Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

It's Not a Religion

A Course in Miracles is not a religion. It's not something you have to believe in or proselytize for. You don't have to convince anyone it's the right way. At the end of the day, spirituality is a personal thing. It's something that's done between you and the Holy Spirit or Jesus or Y'shua or whatever you want to call it. It doesn't matter. In the end, it leads to a personal experience of our intimate relationship with God. It's like a perfect, cosmic orgasm that can't possibly be put into words. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One   Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

Spiritual Sight

The Holy Spirit doesn't think in terms of separation. It sees wholeness everywhere. And by "sees" I mean that's the way the Holy Spirit thinks. It's the way you THINK that constitutes spiritual sight. It doesn't have anything to do with the body's eyes, even though you can see symbols of spirit in the world. They're still just symbols. Reality cannot be seen with the body's eyes, but it can be experienced by the mind.

If you want to return to spirit, think like the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit overlooks the body, which is a false image, and thinks of the truth that is beyond the veil of illusion. This truth is perfect oneness and innocence, exactly the same as God. And thinking of other people that way IS spiritual sight.

Contrast

The ego loves differences. How can you have judgment without differences? How can you have war and murder and violence without differences? So the ego wants you to think that all this separation you're seeing is true. That's what makes it real for you - your belief in it. That's what gives it its power. That's what gives it power over you. The ego craves contrasts and cons you into believing in them in the world, but the Holy Spirit sees sameness. Yes, the Holy Spirit will contrast its thought system with the thought system of the ego. But that is the proper use of contrast, because one is true and one is not. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One    Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

In Your Natural State

In your natural state you're no different from God, and it's not arrogance to think that. It's arrogance to think that somehow you could be separate from God. The truth is you can't be separate from God, except in dreams, which is why you could say that the Course takes the idea of the universe of time and space being an illusion and further refines it into the idea that this is a dream you will awaken from, and that awakening is enlightenment. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One   Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

No Namaste for You

There are many in India who practice an idea that we’ve (Americans) have borrowed from them. You see and hear it at a lot of Unity churches in this country. It’s the idea of Namaste, which means, “The divinity in me bows down to the divinity in you.” That’s certainly a step in the right direction, but, it doesn’t go far enough.

When you say, “The divinity in me bows down to the divinity in you,” you’re limiting that person to a tiny speck of time and space. You’re making individuality real. You’re also making the two of you separate, like a subject and an object. What J did was overlook the body. It’s not that his body’s eyes didn’t appear to see other bodies. But he understood that he wasn’t seeing with the body’s eyes and that he wasn’t actually in a body. He knew what he was seeing with was his mind. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One

Seeing Others

When people get into this kind of work, they often focus on the fact that life is an illusion, which is NOT the thing you want to be focusing on. That's because if it's true that as you see them you will see yourself, and it IS true, then if you go through life seeing people and the world as an illusion, then you will eventually think of yourself in your own unconscious mind as an illusion. You'll feel empty and meaningless, which will leave you depressed.

Remember, your unconscious mind will translate whatever you think about others to be a message about YOU. That's because even though you're not aware of it, your unconscious mind knows everything, including the fact that there's just one of you that thinks it's here. That's why everything you think about others is really a message from you, to you, and about you. And that's how your unconscious mind will think of it. So you definitely don't want to think of people as illusions, or that's what you'll think you are, too. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One   Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

You're It

People may appear to be separate because what they're seeing is a projection that's based on the idea of separation, but that's a trick. No matter how many times the ego appears to divide, it's just an illusion. There's really only one being that thinks it has separated itself from its Source. Yes, it's appearing as many, but there's really always just one, and you're it. Yet the mind appears to keep dividing. then it projects those divisions, which results in more and more people appearing to be here in the projection. But it's all smoke and mirrors. There's always just one ego no matter how many different images you see. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One    Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

The Terminator

The one real problem is the idea that we've separated ourselves from God, and the one real solution is to undo the idea of separation and go home. In order to lead us home, the Holy Spirit gives us the simple truth in the face of the ego's complexities. But the ego won't quit. It's like the Terminator - it just keeps coming. But the truth that undoes the ego will win in the long run, because the Holy Spirit is perfect, and the ego isn't. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One   Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

Projection Follows Denial

A psychologist will tell you that projection always follows denial. That's because when you deny something, it has to go somewhere. Now once something is denied, it becomes unconscious, and the Course speaks volumes about denial. So you forget that you denied it, and then when it's projected outward, you think the projection you're looking at is reality. You forget that you made it, because it's been denied! So it's your projection, but you're not aware of that. And then the Course teaches that "projection makes perception." That means you actually made what you're looking at, but then you forgot, and you take it as as reality. You forget that's it's a mis-creation of your own making.

As J puts it, "Is it not strange that you believe to think you made the world you see is arrogance? God made it not. Of this you can be sure. What can He know of the ephemeral, the sinful and the guilty, the afraid, the suffering and lonely, and the mind that lives within a body that must die? You but accuse Him of insanity, to think He made a world where such things seem to have reality. He is not mad. Yet only madness makes a world like this." ~ Love Has Forgotten No One

The Answer

A Course in Miracles is teaching that the full awareness of the Atonement "is the recognition that the separation never occurred." In other words, the separation is a delusion, a dream, a projection of a universe of time and space. And the answer to that delusion cannot be found on our own with just our intellect, which the ego often uses to keep us seemingly stuck here. The separation is a false experience. And the REAL answer to the separation is to replace it with a true experience, which is the awareness of perfect Oneness with God. In that condition, you are o longer a separate being, but one with all creation, and that experience IS the Answer to what we call life. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One  Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo

You're Not a Victim of God

The first thing you gotta do is top being a victim. For example, if this world was made by God, then you would be a victim of God. You would be the victim of a force that is outside of you that did it to you. But the world was not made by God, and as one of the early Workbook lessons in the Course puts it, "I am not a victim of the world I see." ~ Love Has Forgotten No One   Facebook.com/DWMJF/photo
