I wish to ask you in what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In one part of the book it covers “entering the ark” together, and it almost sounds like you will need one other specific person in order to awaken what is a course in miracles. Therefore, I do believe I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS might be the relationship that reflects enlightenment in my experience, and I in their mind! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you actually need another to help you awaken?
I appreciate your own time so much and thank you for your help in my experience and others. I thank you and I thank God for you. Namaste.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for your 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 are brought together, only One remains.
The human body and the planet are always the focus of ego’s perspective, for it seeks to produce real problems and struggles in the world and to avoid 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 didn’t create. The ego is this identity problem and it had been Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it seemed to arise. That one problem might be described as an authority problem or even a confusion in who’s the author of Reality. Your head that believes in the reality of the time-space cosmos has a control issue, for it believes so it can make 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 a fantastic example with this unveiling.
