I want to ask you by what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In a single part of the book it discusses “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds as though you will need another specific person to be able to awaken what is a course in miracles. Therefore, I believe I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS might be the relationship that reflects enlightenment in my experience, and I for them! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you actually have to have another to help you awaken?
I appreciate your own time so much and thank you for the help in my experience and others. I thank you and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for the openness and your willingness to check deeply at what’s 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’re brought together, only One remains.
Your body and the entire world are usually the focus of ego’s perspective, for this seeks to produce 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 merchandise of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief it is possible to produce an identity which God did not create. The ego is this identity problem and it was Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it did actually arise. This 1 problem might be described as an authority problem or a confusion in who’s mcdougal of Reality. Your head that believes in the reality of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, for this believes that it can make itself. This ego mind also thinks it is in competition with God, although this 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 of this unveiling.
