I have been working diligently at ascension. Ever since I took that webinar by the Rev. Jennifer Hadley Living a Course in Miracles, it has been getting easier and easier to make progress. I am blessed at this time to be able to focus much of my time and energy on this process.
Today’s reading of the Text (p. 544 in my edition of ACIM) II. Many Forms; One Correction was particularly edifying and I wanted to share it with you. The teaching for today is just so all-encompassing, so liberating, so miraculous – you just have to want it to be true!
It is not difficult to understand the reasons why you do not ask the Holy Spirit to solve all problems for you. He has not greater difficulty in resolving some than others. Every problem is the same to Him, because each one is solved in just the same respect and through the same approach. The aspects that need solving do not change, whatever form the problem seems to take.
How amazing is that! All my problems look the same to the H.S. They are neither small or big to Him, just little issues that can be resolved easily by Him. I cannot see them that way or resolve them myself but He can. This is just another reason to make a holy offering of all your problems, life challenges, resentments, judgments against brothers and sisters, all attack thoughts. No matter how large and impossible to solve they seem to you, they are nothing to the H.S. who can heal anything you give Him. Wow!
The Holy Spirit offers you release from every problem that you think you have. They are the same to Him because each one, regardless of the form it seems to take, is a demand that someone suffer loss and make a sacrifice that you might gain. And when the situation is worked out so no one loses is the problem gone, because it was an error in perception that now has been corrected. One mistake is not more difficult for Him to bring to truth than is another. For there IS but one mistake; the whole idea that loss is possible, and could result in gain for anyone. If this were true, then God would be unfair; sin would be possible, attack be justified and vengeance fair.
Think of all the problems you have in your life now: relationships, unemployment, health issues. Now think of all the problems the world has: terrorism, mass shooting sprees, rape and murder, nuclear Armageddon looming on the horizon, environmental catastrophes, etc. Now read that paragraph above again.
The only question on our minds now should be, “How can I believe in the truth of those statements?” That is your challenge: change your mind about how you see the world and find your bliss.
