I wish to ask you about what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one the main book it discusses “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds like you’ll need an added specific person in order to awaken acim. Therefore, I do believe I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS might be the partnership that reflects enlightenment to me, and I in their mind! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you really have to have another to help you awaken?
I appreciate your time so much and many thanks for the help to me and others. I many thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for the openness and your willingness to check deeply at what is underneath these topics and issues. A Course in Miracles teaches that the split mind contains both the situation (the ego) and the Solution (the Holy Spirit). When they’re brought together, only One remains.
Your body and the entire world are usually the focus of ego’s perspective, because of it seeks to produce real problems and struggles on earth and to steer clear of the inner Healing Correction of the Holy Spirit. The ego’s distorted world is the item 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 did actually arise. This 1 problem might be described being an authority problem or perhaps a confusion in who is the writer of Reality. The mind that believes in the reality of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, because of it believes so it can create 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 an excellent example with this unveiling.
