Random quote: Miracles enable You to heal the sick and raise the dead because You made sickness and death yourself and can therefore abolish both. You are a miracle, capable of creating in the likeness of your Creator.~~Text

The Undoing of Separation

Posted on August 16, 2020 by Raj

SEPARATION IS THE UNRESOLVED STATE of objectification — of body identification. There is no peace there. But notice that when you are joined with the Holy Spirit in a state of peace, the body seems to disappear! Why? Because the body as you are misperceiving it — with its sickness, pain and death — loses your attention, and the body As It Divinely Is rejoins the state of Atonement in the experience of communion and the Aha! of realization which are inseparable from the holy instant.

What does this mean? It means that because the body never was objectified outside of the one Mind — which is constantly in a state of peace — and in your choice for peace, what else could possibly happen but that the body be resolved into what it can only be and what it only ever was?

The undoing of separation, on the other hand — the resolution of objectification — is exactly where peace is, because the resolution happens in the holy instant — your choice for peace and being joined . . .

. . . until you reassert your independence once again.

This reassertion is why shifts of perception are not accompanied by the permanent shift of image, which is also part of the miracle. This is why the physical complaints — the misperceptions — become objectified again!

Yes, miracles are sudden shifts of perception, but for them to endure, one must neglect to return to the assertion of independence!

The learning here is that miracles are more than inspiration and bliss which make the human condition more tolerable. They are the correction of the human condition!

However, it is an unexpected and a surprising Learning, since miracles, rather than “happening to you” are evidence only of you “happening in a new way . . .

. . . of you not asking “who” you are, but “what” you are, and
accepting the apparent loss . . .

. . . of you, saying, “Thy will, not mine be done,” and
constantly yielding to the Father, to the
Holy Spirit, and to me — to the Truth
we give voice to so that you may
give voice to It, too!

The unexpected learning is that authority is a difficult addiction to walk away from, and that you are addicted to it. It is the essence of the “separation.” It is what makes you think you are a “who” when you are not, and it causes you to return to it after just dallying in the holy instant instead of remaining there.

It is surprising learning because you didn’t dream that it would involve you so completely, even though phrases such as “laying down your life for your brother” and “being born again” clearly defined the unequivocal words, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” . . . and they apply to you!

It is difficult learning because it is hard to grasp and almost absurd to think that in addition to Listening for the voice for Truth and giving voice to It, one will no longer be able to pursue things which interest him, or which he has a passion for. It is this loss of a self “in its own right” which you had not expected. But this is what it’s all about! This is what the threshold of the restoration of your right mind is, and it is what everyone’s study of A Course in Miracles has been leading to.

Unexpected? Maybe. Difficult to accept? Maybe. Difficult to actually do. No.

More to come? Yes.
