Forgiveness now: a course in miracles & the non dual
Render our holy mind unto God, for only in God is Life and Meaning. Jesus Christ, an amazing non dual teacher, teaches resist not evil precisely because there is no “evil” to resist in God’s Creation and Oneness. In A Course In Miracles Jesus says: “Recognize what does not matter, and if your brothers ask you for something ‘outrageous,’ do it because it does not matter. Refuse, and your opposition establishes that it does matter to you. It is only you, therefore, who have made the request outrageous, and every request of a brother is for you. Why would you insist in denying him? For to do so is to deny yourself and impoverish both. He is asking for salvation, as you are.”

Share freely the Joy of the Holy Spirit! Share the Joy of ACIM as a living demonstration of Divine Love. The Holy Spirit uses the symbols of the world to lead to an experience beyond the symbols. There is no limit on the Holy Spirit’s use of symbols. It is impossible to be limited in any way. I rejoice in this experience. Peace of mind is the outcome of non judgment. Peace comes from the Holy Spirit’s Purpose and not from any “specific” outcome in form.
The ego seeks to “promote” a “plan of salvation” that requires something other than the mind to change to “in form” and “in the future.” Thus does the ego seek to make its “salvation” or “forgiveness” political or social by defining its “forgiveness” as within the dream. Yet forgiveness is simply the Perspective that sees the dream as a dream. Forgiveness does not required that anyone act differently or change in any way. Forgiveness looks and waits and watches and judges not, for from Its kind Gaze illusions are all the same. All form is the illusion of the past, and what is past and gone cannot BE changed. This is the loving teaching of A Course In Miracles.
Jesus Christ is an example or demonstration of the be-attitude of acceptance and non judgment. To take a stand “for” or “against” a form “outcome” makes the error of separation real in awareness, though not in Reality. There is nothing causative in form, yet to believe that some form “outcomes” are “better” than others is the attempt to deny that all illusions are the same. A change of purpose from a grievance to a miracle is meaningful for it is another way of looking upon the world. Yet this shift makes no demands, for the mind is thus freed from the insane wish and attempt to make things be “different” and “better” than they already are. While the ego demands that the “problem” be defined in form (ie., personal, societal, interpersonal, environmental, etc.), the Holy Spirit simply asks that the belief in separation be brought to the Light within.
The problem is not “in” the world, for there is no world apart from mind. Forgiveness is not “in” the world, for there is no forgiveness apart from mind. If forgiveness is put truly “first” by valuing the Perspective of the Holy Spirit, there can be no wish to improve the dream. For the problem was never “in” the dream. It was only a “problem” of perspective, and the “problem” has been healed.
