Have you lost your mind?

The miracle joins in the Atonement by placing the mind in the service of the Holy Spirit. This establishes the proper function of the mind and corrects its errors, which are merely lacks of love. Your mind can be possessed by illusions, but spirit is eternally free. If a mind perceives without love, it perceives an empty shell and is unaware of the spirit within. But the Atonement restores spirit to its proper place. The mind that serves spirit is invulnerable.

A Course in Miracles . Foundation for Inner Peace.T-1.IV.2:6-11. 

The Holy Spirit, Unconditional Love, brings about the miracle which is a change in focus from the world of the ego to the world of Spirit which facilitates the Atonement which is the healing of the separation of human beings from the Unconditional Love of God. When the mind perceives without the miracle it is seeing an illusion: that is an empty shell without its Divine spark. The Atonement restores reality and this reality is invulnerable.

In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested in step eleven that we improve our conscious contact with God through prayer and meditation. AA encourages the restoration of the right mind.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person which is a view of the Atonement and this view is a miracle.

Today, how one would use the mind: in service of the Holy Spirit or the ego?
