In the content on, “A Course in Miracles is Brotherhood,” we discussed the important thing metaphysical ideas utilized by the ego part of the split mind for separation. By viewing others as separate, and utilizing the ego to displace the love of God, we end up in special love or hate relationships. Ultimately, to see another as a brother means we should stop trying all judgments because we now choose to see the truth about them and ourselves. You can only see who your brothers are, and automatically who you’re, through relinquishing that which you judged and made true through error. Error hides truth. Seeing is knowing which reveals truth.
The ego uses many different predictable patterns because the foundation of its thought system is judgment whose origin stems from sin, fear and guilt. Judgment is always one or the other. As you perceive a brother through judgment, you’ll project and judge on that brother before you perceive the results back. Once those answers are perceived, you uses perception repeatedly to project and judge them even more.
Unfortunately, this uses both sides of the ego wrong mind and compounds the initial error until the stark reality is well hidden. Handing over judgments for correction (forgiveness) stops the cycle.
The ego uses special love and hate relationships, in addition to specialness (being different), to keep the illusion of separation going. Utilization of these kind of relationships as cause, is also the ego mind as cause; and the effect is to carry on separation between brothers as they are on the basis of the original separation. Remember cause and effect: The mind you choose from, as cause, will result in the corresponding consequences (effect).
This is simply not about you being forced to be alone or avoid relationships in life. It is, however, all about how you enter and use them within the mind.
The choice which will set you free is to decide on to own your relationships be Holy Relationships. You ought to be the person practicing forgiveness in your entire relationships, even if you are the only one. It is “special” before you transform it “Holy.” To see another as a brother, a prerequisite to going home, is True Perception which shines a light of truth for you both. The ego cannot prevail against Oneness because it’s not real.
Form and Content:
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is clear that form doesn’t matter. There’s nothing in ACIM about behavior and whenever you judge a brother on his / her behavior, that is the same side of the ego mind. They might be acting from the ego “wrong” mind; but you’re judging from the ego “right” mind. To the ego, one judgment is just like any other.
What the Course says is that content matters. Content could be the mind. ACIM concerns itself with you understanding as you are able to choose the Holy Spirit Right Mind as your internal Teacher thereby making a different cause and effect.
That which you or another does in form (behavior) doesn’t matter. However here are two questions to think about:
When I acted, did I act from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
Is my interpretation of my brother from the Holy Spirit Right Mind? (Content)
You won’t have peace if you can answer “yes” to both. Choose again if you need to. It is never too late.
There’s Only Among Us:
Once you judge a brother, you’re utilizing the ego mind as cause for that judgment becoming a real effect. This is why we emphasize that that which you see in another needs to be forgiven in yourself first. Here’s why: (1) You can’t see fault (judgment) in another if you chose from that part of the split mind to start with; (2) You can’t judge that which you don’t already believe to be true as it is on the basis of the mind you chose from; and (3) Judgment about another is a statement of the guilt retained in your thoughts from the initial separation because you’re choosing to utilize the ego mind. It is where you stand still holding onto fear and guilt rather than choosing correction (forgiveness) for the truth.
Absolutely anybody who turns up and gives you an opportunity to heal your brain is a gift you can use. Change it right into a Holy Relationship. This is how you’ll return your own personal mind to God, and how others eventually notice it for themselves. Support the light of forgiveness which gives all minds a way to create a different choice. Judge and they run and hide further into darkness and error.
A Demand Love:
Attack is a conscious mind behavior predicated on projection, judgment and perception. The ego’s point is to guard separate identity and therefore, all attack is really a necessitate love, or forgiveness, which is joining. The more determined you’re to learn the truth about yourself and a brother, the more you’ll choose contrary to the ego’s attacks in favor of correction (forgiveness) from the Right Mind.
Responding with love could mean a lot of things and sometimes, it may also mean no response. Other times, you will need a boundary or even to take some action. To respond with love, you absolutely must be practicing forgiveness and utilizing the Right Mind to turn over all attack and judgment. The Holy Spirit will give you an answer if you completely turn to that Right Mind for help. “Completely” is the important thing word.
Eventually you see no attack (error) occurred and that is to learn the truth about you and your brother. There’s no defense necessary (“defenselessness” on the Split Mind diagram). Once you share your willingness to not see error, you have shared what you would like to keep and learn for yourself. That which you share you discover you have.
Sharing way to allow you to ultimately share with another what you would like them to have. Your only reason behind doing the reason being it’s what you would like to own for yourself. You are teaching them what you would like to be yours. a course in miracles david hoffmeister Teaching is instruction of ideas and principles. Do this and you will find you have it because you’ve literally said, “Give back in my experience what I’ve taught you.”
The metaphysics are simple:
Judge – and that is that which you are sharing and expecting to own back.
Love – and that is that which you are sharing and expecting to own back.
Another solution to consider the notion of sharing is this: (1) Sharing is your choice (choice) on who you imagine you to ultimately be by the content mind you choose as cause; (2) That which you share as cause replies as the effect; (3) You teach a brother to give you that cause as your effect; and (4) You find you have it, and keep it, since it originated from the split mind as cause and is currently returned as effect.
Ideas do not leave their source. Your choice as the content mind as cause is always: (A) The Holy Spirit Right Mind for correction; or, (B) the error of the ego mind.
It’s as simple as that. Sharing is a selection of mind with corresponding results and is situated entirely on that which you think you have to be true within that chosen mind. Ego mind has limits. God mind is knowledge which is heaven and oneness.
Seeing a Brother:
By now you’ve hopefully begun to understand that you ought to be the one to improve your brain about your brothers to see them as brothers. Relinquishing judgment ends separation and reveals the light of the truth about all of us: Your brother is you.
Once you make your entire relationships become Holy Relationships, you have entered through the keyhole of an entry to freedom, love, peace, joy and happiness. Abundance lies in sharing Holy interpretations from the Holy Spirit, God’s solution in the mind. Choosing this as cause, you share along with your Holy Relationships those effects so that minds can be healed and return with their rightful place with God.
I’d like to ask you to think about this: Via a brother, you see your own personal guilt (judgments) and what needs to be forgiven in yourself because therein lies the mind you chose as cause. Sharing means giving and teaching what you would like to keep yourself and expect returned for your requirements from your brother as effect. Then, who exactly can you be doing all of this with? We perceive, judge and project and as we do, it’s returned through our brothers as they are perceived in the mind.
Could it be that every brother is a fragmented portion of your own split mind? Your brother would then be your Holy Companion. They’re you and all of us are really one. To see them as a brother is knowledge, atonement, and a finish to separation.
