The ego uses a variety of predictable patterns because the basis of its thought system is judgment whose origin stems from sin, fear and guilt. Judgment is definitely one or the other. As you perceive a brother through judgment, you will project and judge on that brother and soon 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 original 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 specialness (being different), to help keep the illusion of separation going. Usage of these types of relationships as cause, can be the ego mind as cause; and the effect is to continue separation between brothers because they are in line with the original separation. Remember cause and effect: The mind 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 really is, however, all about the method that you enter and utilize them within the mind.
The choice that will set you free is to choose to have your relationships be Holy Relationships. You must function as person practicing forgiveness in all 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, holds 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 TRAINING COURSE in Miracles (ACIM) is quite clear that form will not matter. You’ll find nothing in ACIM about behavior and when you judge a brother on his or her behavior, this is the same side of the ego mind. They might 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 is the mind. ACIM concerns itself with you understanding that you can pick the Holy Spirit Right Mind as your internal Teacher thereby creating a different cause and effect.
What you or another does in form (behavior) will not matter. However listed below 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 won’t have peace unless you can answer “yes” to both. Choose again if you need to. It is never too late.
There is ONLY 1 of Us:
When you judge a brother, you are using the ego mind as cause for that judgment to become real effect. That 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 in the first place; (2) You cannot judge what you don’t already believe to be true as it is using the mind you chose from; and (3) Judgment about another is really a statement of the guilt retained in your thoughts from the original separation because you opting for to use the ego mind. It is what your location is still keeping fear and guilt rather than choosing correction (forgiveness) for the truth.
Absolutely anyone who turns up and provides you with to be able to heal your mind is a gift you should use. Turn it right into a Holy Relationship. This is one way 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 create a different choice. Judge and they run and hide further into darkness and error.
A Call for Love:
Attack is a conscious mind behavior based 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’re to know the truth about yourself and a brother, the more you will choose against the ego’s attacks in favor of correction (forgiveness) from the Right Mind.
Responding with love can mean many things and sometimes, it can even mean no response. un curso de milagros Other times, you might need a boundary or even to take some action. To respond with love, you absolutely must be practicing forgiveness and using the Right Mind to turn over all attack and judgment. The Holy Spirit will provide you with a solution if 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 truth about you and your brother. There is absolutely no defense necessary (“defenselessness” on the Split Mind diagram). Once you share your willingness not to see error, you have shared what you need to keep and learn on your own. What you share you find you have.
Sharing methods to allow yourself to give to another what you want them to have. Your only reason behind doing this is because it is what you need to have on your own. You are teaching them what you need to be yours. Teaching is instruction of ideas and principles. Do that and you may find you own it because you’ve literally said, “Give back to me what I’ve taught you.”
