Eternal Essence"The song of freedom, which sings the praises of another world, brings to it hope of peace. For it remembers
Heaven, and now it sees that Heaven has come to earth at last, from which the ego's rule has kept it out so long. Heaven has come because it found a home in your relationship on earth."

INSIDE THIS ISSUE
CIMS Bi-Monthly eMagazine

~Eternal Essence~
           This Bi-Monthly eMagazine is a collaborative effort by the students of A Course in Miracles as they share their articles, poems, music, artwork and answers to those questions we all seem to have.

           Our first article in this issue is an article written by Martin Weber-Caspers [maz] regarding a very revolutionary idea of declaring the Unity, Oneness and Equality of all life in his article, "Mind Changes ~ Earth Changes REALLY?"

             We are also happy to announce the release of the 5th Video, "ACCEPTANCE", in Carol Howe's wonderful Video Series "See How Life Works". Carol was a close friend of the co-scribe of A Course in Miracles Bill Thetford and is author of the book, "Never Forget to Laugh: Personal Recollections of Bill Thetford".    

            Next we have a beautiful, heartfelt Poem titled: "Diamond She Wrote", written by R July Tang.  July lives in Singapore and is one of the participants on the ACIM Daily Conference Call. 

            A second article, submitted by Sandy Hockridge, a long-time Course student is called, "Inspiration from Respiration" and offers a  psychological insight into Lesson 267 "My Heart is Beating in the Peace of God". 
       
             Our "Spiritually Minded Movie" selection, prepared by Carl Lammers, looks at the movie, "Revolver" described by Examiner.com as "...a story about how much someone's life can be controlled by their ego. Is your ego really who you are or is it just who you think you are?"  
  

             In our Q and A section section for this issue, Rev Reja Joy Green answers  the Question: "Is it possible in this world to be defenseless in all situations?"   

             

            ELDER BROTHER guides all of us on "Taking Awakening Seriously and JOYFULLY" in the article: GUIDANCE from ELDER BROTHER  scribed by Sun~Rose.  

 

           As a REMINDER, we have DAILY scribing by Sun~Rose of GUIDANCE from Elder Brother on our Blog and emailed each day to Course students who have joined our email list.    

 

           "The Spirit Light Outreach" program was founded by Joe Wolfe as a vehicle to aide those who are incarcerated find spiritual support. Joe's own story was published in the January 2010 issue of this eMagazine in an article called: "ACIM in Prison". This program is facilitating the shipment of copies of A Course in Miracles to prisoners who have requested them. If you feel inspired to give to this worthy endeavor, please click here.

 

           This year a DAILY CONFERENCE CALL was formed by Reverend Pamela Whitman and Reverend Reja Joy Green to give themselves and other ACIM Students the support they need in doing the lessons daily.  
An average of 15 people join together every morning to do the Daily ACIM Lesson together and share their experiences. Some of those who are on the call choose to just listen; Some choose to participate in the reading aloud of the Lesson and some share their experiences and  questions they may have. The call is FREE and available to all. Come join us!  610-214-0000 Code: 320134#   Past recordings are here  and on SoundCloud.

 

           We are also continuing to publish information regarding our TRANSLATION PROJECT.  If you are inspired to give a tax deductible contribution to these efforts Please Click Here.   

 

          MAILING LIST CHANGES: When it is noon in New York, it is already the NEXT morning in Australia. That is why we have an "EARLY MAILING" LIST for those ACIM students who would like to receive the next day's lesson at noon Eastern Standard Time the day before.

Embodied Essence  
This article starts with a question: Being Course In Miracles students, while reading the following list of statements, would we have any objection to its content, if "God Father, Son and Holy Spirit" is actually synonymous with the word symbols "Eternal Essence"?

The following is an excerpt from a paradigm-shifting official UCC [Universal Commercial Code] filing document, March 18th, 2013:

A.   Eternal essence IS, 
B.   All value that IS, IS eternal essence, 
C.   All that IS embodied, IS eternal essence, 
D.   All that IS, IS eternal essence, ; 
E.    Eternal essence's universe IS eternal essence, 
F.    Any and all existences that ARE, ARE eternal essence's
       universe, 
G.   All records BE eternal essence, 
H.   Eternal essence IS Absolute Light, 
 I.    Eternal essence IS Absolute Love, 
 J.    Eternal essence IS Absolute Truth, 
K.   Eternal essence IS Absolute,

L.    In Absolute Gratitude, with Absolute Love and Peace, eternal essence embodied does consciously and lovingly duly declare, with full responsibility and liability, the memory, experience and knowing of Absolute Truth, eternal essence;

M.    In Absolute Gratitude, with Absolute Love and Peace, eternal essence embodied does consciously and lovingly duly declare, with full responsibility and liability, the memory and knowing of Absolute Truth, eternal essence embodied in each and all manifestations in any and all existences of eternal essence's universe;  
                                                     ~*~ 
This article will probably "rock your boat" in the most positive sense. Its content rocks mine, this much I know. The above quotes will be explained in the second part of this essay. 
 
First, let us suppose that the amount of healing of our individual minds must be reflected in the world we see. The following - on the relative level of the world - does witness to this in my mind. The world must be saved by us, says the Author, but where is the evidence that it actually does meet salvation parallel to the personal salvation experienced through miracles and the Atonement principles conveyed in our Original Course?

The really great thing about Jesus� Original Course, - as it is reported by so many students through the last 13 years since its discovery on November 29th, 1999,- is its practical, down-to-earth approach which abundantly addresses our humanity, our human psyche and its levels, and the "separation ...order of reality" which is the post-separation scenario for all "separated ones". That would be us, inhibiting this earth or any other realm related to the unfolding process of Atonement. The Course says about our human history:

"The history of man in the world as he sees it has not yet been marked by any genuine or comprehensive reawakening or rebirth. This is impossible as long as man projects in the spirit of miscreation. It still remains within him, however, to project as God projected  His own Spirit to him. In reality, this is his only choice because his free will was given him for his own joy in creating the perfect. " (OrEd.Tx.2.14)

Most students are familiar with the various descriptors of our world - a place for the "healing of God�s Son", part of a "space-time belief" into which the Atonement principle has been built in, which has "another Maker" and is reinterpreted from a separation device into a means for Atonement. But we also find other radical statements which apparently deny the world�s existence or its supreme significance in our waking experience, such as "There is no world."(OrEd.Wb.132.7)

As pointed out in some excellent essays circulating in the Course community the importance of level discernment could not be more obvious than with regard to such important matters. Therefore, let us recapitulate a simple "Key to the Course", which helps to solve most of the potential confusions which occur in almost every student�s experience while learning this Course. Basically, every axiom and pivot in the Course�s thought system can be understood at the proper, respective level of discourse in order to avoid level confusion.

The levels are basically two: the abstract and the relative, plus two alternating levels which contain  a combination of those. The premises for each axiom are either true or false. This is the convenient attribute of a "radical idealism" which leaves no gray zones for guessing. Let us summarize the four levels which can each underlie any of the absolute statements made in the Course:

1.      True in Eternity - True in time (TE/TT) 
2.      True in Eternity - false in time (TE/FT) 
3.      False in Eternity - True in time (FE/TT) 
4.      False in Eternity - false in time (FE/FT)

Examples for the four levels would be:

1.      "Love is one." (OrEd.Wb.127.1)         
         This statement is true in Eternity and true in time. (TE/TT)

2.      "Unbroken and uninterrupted love flows constantly
         between the Father and the Son, as both would have it be. "
          (OrEd.Tx.14.34)
          If that was true in time, we wouldn�t need any healing or           Atonement, would we? The separation was a block in this           communication in time. This statement is True in Eternity
          and false in time. (TE/FT)

3.      "Perception has a focus." (OrEd.Wb.181.2)        
         This is definitely true in time, but there is no perception in
          Eternity, where only Knowledge abides, so it is "false" in
          Eternity. This statement is therefore, False in Eternity and
          True in time (FE/TT)

4.      "Only by His death can [God] be conquered by His Son."          (OrEd.Mn.5.2) Obviously, God cannot be conquered; not in
          time and not in Eternity.  This statement is False in Eternity
          and false in time (FE/FT)

With this in mind, let us look a bit closer at the idea that:

"We must save the world. For we who made it must behold it through the eyes of Christ, that what was made to die be restored to Everlasting Life." (OrEd.Wb.ST241.5).

Obviously, neither the physical world nor the real world are ...

The facts are we remember approximately:
        20% of what we hear
                40% of what we hear and see
                        and 80% of what we see, hear and do

When the Course was channeled between 1965 and 1972, the limitations of *cognitive therapy were not as apparent as they are today.

*Wikipedia: Cognitive therapy seeks to help the patient overcome difficulties by identifying and changing dysfunctional thinking, behavior, and emotional responses.

The best psychotherapists today realize the added value of incorporating "energy work" into their patients' cognitive therapy.  The mind, body and spirit are a single entity.

For those not familiar with the term, 'Energy work' "involves the transfer and direction of universal life force energy to help clear, strengthen and balance one's energy field." *Energy Work

ACIM Lesson 267
My heart is beating in the peace of God.

I have substituted five synonyms for "peace," all of which are used interchangeably throughout the Course.


My heart is beating in the love of God.

My heart is beating in the joy of God.

My heart is beating in the gentleness of God.

My heart is beating in the strength of God.

My heart is beating is the light of God.


By focusing on my heartbeat and placing my hands over my heart, I take a breath before and after each mantra and say the six lines either to myself or aloud:


My heart is beating in the peace of God.

My heart is beating in the love of God.

My heart is beating in the joy of God.

My heart is beating in the gentleness of God.

My heart is beating in the strength of God.

My heart is beating in the light of God.

This exercise combines activities of both the voluntary and involuntary nervous systems, encouraging left brain and right brain integration.  Thus, the exercise is wholistic (holy).

Moreover, the exercise is calming and centering - capable of reducing anxiety levels, increasing presence and a sense of connection to All That Is.

Storyline


Revolver is populated with Guy Ritchie's classic breed of fast-talking, sharp suited gangsters but with a psychological twist that your mind may not be able to handle. Starring Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Vincent Pastore and Andre Benjamin.

"It is a story about how much someone's life can be controlled by their ego. Is your ego really who you are or is it just who you think you are? It's been there for so long that it's difficult to distinguish the difference. That ego is obviously very self-absorbed, so greed becomes a factor in a very short amount of time. The Jake Green and Dorothy Macha characters are very similar, if not exactly the same. The difference is one of them gives into their ego while the other triumphs over it. The message the film portrays may vary depending on who you ask, but think of it like this Revolver is a journey that isn't about getting rid of your ego. It's about learning how to control it." --Examiner.com
  • Starring: Jason Statham, Ray Liotta
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie

Questions and Answers
In Light of ACIM 
By REV REJA JOY GREEN*

Question and Answer  
                                                                         Back to Top
"In time, with practice, you will never cease to think of Him

and hear His loving Voice guiding your footsteps into quiet ways where you will walk in true defenselessness
for you will know that Heaven goes with you."

~ ACIM  Lesson 153


QUESTION: "Is it possible, in this world, to be defenseless in ALL situations?" 

 

ANSWER:  The following article answers this question by focusing on Lesson 170 "There is no cruelty in God and none in me."
It is taken from an article appearing in the Course in Miracles WordPress Blog under the category: From The Desk of Rev Reja Joy published JUNE 2013.

 

L e s s o n  170  
There is no cruelty in God and none in me.

  

1 No one attacks without intent to hurt. This can have no exception. When you think that you attack in self-defense, you mean that to be cruel is protection; you are safe because of cruelty. You mean that you believe to hurt another brings you freedom. And you mean that to attack is to exchange the state in which you are for something better, safer, more secure from dangerous invasion and from fear.

  

 2 How thoroughly insane is the idea that to defend from fear is to attack! ACIM Lesson 170  

  

HE tells us in this lesson that "No one attacks without intent to hurt. This can have no exception." And yet we make exceptions almost immediately.

One exception might be a situation in which we would attack someone and feel justified.  And what about 'self defense'? Wouldn't we, at the very least, attack in self-defense?  How could we not? Doesn't the god of fear tell us all that if we do not defend ourselves, we could be hurt?  Doesn't the god of fear tell us that our only protection and security, from a dangerous invasion and from fear, is to ATTACK in retaliation? And so we defend ourselves  to keep what we have; or we attack another to get what we think we want. How could we possibly think that we could gain at another's loss?

   

"The whole belief that someone loses but reflects the underlying tenet God must be insane. For in this world, it seems that one must gain because another lost. If this were true, then God is mad indeed! But what is this belief except a form of the more basic tenet, "Sin is real and rules the world"? For every little gain must someone lose and pay exact amount in blood and suffering. For otherwise would evil triumph and destruction be the total cost of any gain at all. You who believe that God is mad, look carefully at this and understand that it must be that either God or this must be insane, but hardly both." ACIM CH 25 VIII  


A VISITOR to our ACIM Study Group recently shared that an incident had occurred in his home ACIM Study Group.  He described the facilitator of his Group as very non-confrontational and accepting. And he described his group demographics as all women, except himself, who were over 60 years old.

A man, an INTRUDER, joined their group and announced that he was going to be taking over. Our VISITOR told us that this man hinted that he had a weapon.

That's when our VISITOR made the decision, based on the inability of the Facilitator to protect the group and based on the vulnerability of the elderly women in the group, to proceed with a preemptive strike.  He told the man that he was leaving and escorted him out by force. As he did so, someone had already called the police and the police took the INTRUDER away.

Our VISITOR reasoned that he was merely acting out the 'dream' of the INTRUDER. The INTRUDER was 'dreaming' that it was his job to attack the group and cause a reaction.  And so our VISITOR was just giving him what he wanted. When he mentioned this, our group exploded in laughter! It seemed like a plausible scenario.  The INTRUDER 'wanted' to go to jail!

And yet is there another way to see this?

This situation in the ACIM Study Group is a symbol for the many times we 'see' attack as real and our defense as justified. We judge what is real for us in any situation and then respond. HE tells us in ACIM Ch 3, VIII:

 

"It does not matter in the end whether you judge right or wrong. Either way, you are placing your belief in the unreal. This cannot be avoided in any type of judgment because it implies the belief that reality is yours to choose from."ACIM CH 3 VIII paragraph 62  

 

When we make a judgment from the belief that we can choose what is real in any situation, we are placing our belief in the unreal. "Nothing real can be threatened and nothing unreal exists", from the ACIM Introduction. We separate ourselves into separate 'bodies' and then protect these bodies by mitigating a perceived attack.

In our Lessons we are being taught to 'see' holiness in everything. We are taught in Lesson 37: "My holiness blesses the world." In this lesson HE tells us:
 

  

"This idea contains the first glimmerings of your true function in the world or why you are here. Your purpose is to see the world through your own holiness. Thus are you and the world blessed together. No one loses; nothing is taken away from anyone; everyone gains through your holy vision. It signifies the end of sacrifice because it offers everyone his full due. And he is entitled to everything because it is his birthright as a Son of God." ACIM Lesson 37 

  

Amazing!!!  No one loses. Nothing is taken from anyone. Blessing everything and everyone with our holiness, with our sight of wholeness and perfection, is our salvation. That is why our brother is our Saviour! When we bless him, no matter what he is choosing to 'act out' from his nightmare, we teach the meaning of love.   

 

"Your holiness blesses him by asking nothing of him. Those who see themselves as whole make no demands."  
ACIM Lesson 37

How could we possibly 'bless' this INTRUDER, in this situation? He tells us "Your holiness blesses him by asking nothing of him." In any attack, there is an opponent which is needed for the attack to have meaning. When there is no opposition, the attack fails. It returns to the nothingness from which it came. Its seeming 'reality' comes only from the defense it engenders. Without a 'defense' it becomes impotent.

He tells us you teach the world by "your quiet recognition that in your holiness are all things blessed." ACIM Lesson 37  What could occur that does not warrant our quiet recognition of this holiness in all things?

Yet we may wonder how could we ever see that this seeming attack warrants our quiet recognition of 'holiness'. If we do that, won't we open ourselves to pain and suffering? Without our defense, wouldn't there be chaos? And He tells us without the ego all would be Love.

He also tells us that in our defenselessness our safety lies. Attack and defense are two sides of a dance that has been re-enacted over and over since the beginning of our illusory time.

He also tells us that "If I defend myself I am attacked." ACIM Lesson 37 The situation becomes an ATTACK only if and when I DEFEND myself.

I shared the following in my article, "Avatar and ACIM":  

  

In the book, "Creating Miracles" written by Carolyn Miller, PhD, there are many examples of those who were in the face of imminent death and yet in that moment they experienced a clarity and a peace and a sense of unconditional love and wholeness that encompassed everything, including the perpetrator. In that moment they became ONE with the perpetrator. The would-be murderer knew that they had been forgiven and released of their guilt and in that Holy Instant they were transformed.

"The strength of right perception is so great that it brings the mind INTO accord with His because it yields to His pull which is in all of you." OrEd.Tx.5.36

  

So, how could this 'situation' have been different?

  

"What could you not accept if you but knew that all events, past, present, and to come, are gently planned by One whose only purpose is your good?" ACIM L135

  

A man comes into the group and announces he is taking over control. The reaction by those who are in the group is one of surprise and then perhaps gaiety! "Welcome dear one!! We've been awaiting your arrival.  How blessed we are to have you with us today." The group knows themselves, and the INTRUDER, as whole and complete and still as God created them and from this knowledge of their wholeness they make no demands." Out of their Knowledge of Who they are and Who the INTRUDER is, they know they need only extend their love.

  

The INTRUDER is totally caught off guard and then the sinlessness in him recognizes the love that is being shared with him! He opens to the shared recognition of his wholeness and his light. Isn't that what we all want as well? Isn't that what we are all searching for?   

 

"You have no idea of the tremendous release and deep peace that comes from meeting yourselves and your brothers totally without judgment.

When you recognize what you and your brothers are, you will realize that judging them in any way is without meaning.

In fact, their meaning is lost to you precisely because you are judging them.

In the presence of knowledge, all judgment is automatically suspended, and this is the process which enables recognition to replace perception." ACIM CH 3 VIII paragraph 63

And so we lovingly bless this brother by seeing what is REAL in him. We need nothing from him. He need not be different.  From our Wholeness we see him as Whole. We see him with the eyes of Love. And as we see him, we see ourselves. This is why we came here. This is our salvation.

"Your holiness is the salvation of the world. It lets you teach the world that it is one with you, not by preaching to it, not by telling it anything, but merely by your quiet recognition that in your holiness are all things blessed, along with you." 
ACIM Lesson 37

Guidance from Elder Brother
"Taking Awakening Seriously
and Joyfully"

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE:  In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You.  

  

BROTHER:   

   

My belov�d students of the Course, do You realize that You have found a treasure that offers You great freedom from the sick ego nightmare? A holy treasure that will heal Your mind.

 

If You avail Yourself of it, You have a far better option than dying to free Yourselves from what claims to be reality, yet You may know is but a dream.   I did not come to improve the dream, but to liberate You.

 

Do You really yearn to help Your Brothers? Start the Awakening. Do starving children bring You pain? Why not wake up for them! No greater gift can You bring all Others than Your willingness to now Awaken.

 

Have You looked around Your countries and Your world today? Heard or read the daily stream of such suffering? How can You help bless and heal Your Brothers? Would You not will to waken - eschew dreaming - to heal their pain? You will be healed too!

 

Just as You would forgive a Brother for His sins in the dream, forgive Your dreaming. Then cultivate the habit of always asking Me - or Our Father or the Holy Spirit - to show You Reality. And if You don't hear, learn to persevere. The goal is worth it.

 

To see Your Brother and Your world with the eyes of Christ brings You right to paradise. (literally: near God) For the loving Vision with which You see Your Brother, becomes how You see Yourself.

 

When You see as I do, joy will fill You. You are so lovely!

    How many times have you said to yourself that you wanted to start A Course in Miracles Daily Lessons at the beginning of the year?

    Now there is a way to do that and with the company and support of fellow students.

    Rev. Pamela Whitman and Rev. Reja Joy Green experienced incredible insights while participating in the Community Miracles Center [CMC] Ministerial Program. Each day for a year they met with a lesson partner to practice the lessons together.

    The experience was so helpful and was such a powerful way of integrating the A Course in Miracles Lessons, that they decided to continue into the New Year. In order to do this, they developed a way of not only continuing but of sharing it with anyone who would like to join them.

    Rev. Pamela Whitman* and Rev. Reja Joy Green* are facilitating a Daily Lesson Conference Call which began January 1, 2013.

    The Call is at 9 am EST every morning. Rev. Pamela is Facilitator on Mon, Wed, and Sat. Rev. Reja Joy is Facilitator on Tu, Th and Fri; Sundays are facilitated by Carl Lammers.

  •         Open with a Guided Centering
  •         Read the Lesson for the day
  •         Do the lesson which includes meditation
  •         Read a Commentary from various sources
  •         Share our experience
  •         Close with a Guided Centering 


    GUEST Speakers might be invited to attend and all participants are encouraged to share their favorite commentary.
