Day Twenty six
Mistakes have been made
The “miracle” as spoken of in A Course In Miracles is not magic. The “miracle” is not supernatural flim flam. The “miracle” in a Course In Miracles is changing one’s mind about the source of one’s power and authority from the body to the mind.
There is a slogan, “What you see is what you get,” which would be more accurately stated as “What you think you see is what you get.” The question has now shifted from “what do you see” to “what do you think you see and why?”
When we come to realize that we are not bodies with a spirit but rather a spirit with a body our experience of life subtly but dramatically changes and the healing of our minds, the undoing of our social conditioning, has begun.
Focusing on the body is believing that the separation is real, the separation of our ego from the Mind Of God. We are told in A Course In Miracles that this separation, which fills us with guilt unconsciously, has never occurred even though we like to think it has. It takes courage and humility to admit that we are mistaken and that, at the Spiritual level, we all are one.
Today, I will forgive myself for my mistaken ideas and thoughts that I am separate and special and acknowledge that I am in this thing called Life along with everyone else.
