I do want to ask you in what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one part of the book it talks about “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds as though you need an added specific person in order to awaken acim. Therefore, I think I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS could possibly be the partnership that reflects enlightenment if you ask me, and I in their mind! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you really need to have another to help you awaken?
I appreciate your time so much and many thanks for your help if you ask me and others. I many thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for your openness and your willingness to look deeply at what is underneath these topics and issues. A Course in Miracles teaches that the split mind contains both the problem (the ego) and the Solution (the Holy Spirit). When they are brought together, only One remains.
Your body and the world are usually the focus of ego’s perspective, for it seeks to make real problems and struggles on the planet and to prevent the inner Healing Correction of the Holy Spirit. The ego’s distorted world is the merchandise of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief it is 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 did actually arise. This 1 problem could possibly be described as an authority problem or even a confusion in who’s mcdougal of Reality. Your head that believes in the truth of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, for it believes so it can cause itself. This ego mind also thinks it’s 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 of the unveiling.
