“What keeps the world in chains but your beliefs? And what can save the world except your Self? Belief is powerful indeed. The thoughts you hold are mighty, and illusions are as strong in their effects as is the truth….”
Don’t underestimate the insanity of the human condition. An unhealed healer will tell you not to worry about it because the world is not real. And this is just the sort of “new age” crap that kept me away from gurus and such. I felt the pain of this place and believed it was very real.
“…A madman thinks the world he sees is real and does not doubt it. Nor can he be swayed by questioning his thoughts’ effects. It is but when their source is raised to question that the hope of freedom comes to him at last.”
You always have to get to the Source of the matter. Reasonably, if God created sickness, pain and death, then I want no part of that god. And if not God, then who’s responsible??? Now we are at least looking in the right place.
“We have constantly referred to miracles as the means of correcting level confusion. In reality, all mistakes must be corrected at the level at which they occur. Only the mind is capable of error…”
Since only the mind is capable of error, then maybe there’s some hope. Notice how Jesus uses the term “mistake;” that’s because a mistake can be corrected. We need to start to question all the beliefs we have held about ourselves and the world.
“…The body can ACT erroneously, but this is only because it has responded to mis-Thought. The body cannot create, and the belief that it CAN, a fundamental error responsible for most of the fallacies already referred to, produces all physical symptoms.”
“The mind can make the belief in Separation VERY real and VERY fearful. And this belief IS the devil. It is powerful, active, destructive, and clearly in opposition to God, because it literally denies His Fatherhood. Never underestimate power of this denial. Look at your lives and see what the devil has made. But KNOW that this making will surely dissolve in the light of truth, because its foundation IS a lie.”
You’ve been a liar from the start. The whole foundation of a world of separation is nothing more then a belief, in the mind, that needs correction. And here is where I would direct your attention to the mind training lessons of A Course In Miracles.
