Right now in our world it may seem that there’s a lot of sicknesses, a lot of illness, and that it’s increasing. I understand that this is how it looks if we look at it from the perspective of being a body. But we are NOT a body. And we never will be.
From a spiritual point of view, there’s a healing that is taking place. The healing is happening in our belief system, in our mind, and in our perspective.
If we look at what’s happening with the death and illness from Covid-19, we’ll see the only loss. When our loved ones lose their lives in this world it sure does seem like a loss, but there IS something greater occurring if we’re willing to see it – and we cannot see it if we believe we are a body.
Now is the time for us to remember that we’re not separate, we’re One with each other. A Course in Miracles calls this “accepting the Atonement.”
Miracles Principle #25 from the Text of ACIM is “Miracles are part of an interlocking chain of forgiveness which, when completed, is the Atonement. Atonement works all the time and in all the dimensions of time.”
We have a spiritual obligation to be WILLING to see past separation and accept that it never was, nor could it be.
If we’re willing, our mind will be released from believing in separation.
Right now, there’s a powerful remedy to separation thinking that’s occurring in our human experience by means of this virus. Every day we get to clearly choose between fear and compassion. Those who are choosing fear are obvious because they are not choosing compassion. Those who are choosing compassion are obvious because they are not choosing fear.
Compassion is a loving understanding. Compassion is an expression of Love that heals.
Fear binds, Love liberates.
You can tell what you’re choosing by how you feel – tense or peaceful.
Interestingly, one way for us to best survive this virus is to separate but not to see ourselves as separate. We must keep our bodies separate, but we must unite in choosing to care so much about our brothers and sisters that we’re willing to do what it takes to keep the virus from killing the most vulnerable of us.
We must unite in order to “do the right thing.”
We must be of one mind in order to accomplish this healing with the greatest ease and grace.
We can succeed best by recognizing our connection with all beings. Fires, floods, plagues. These experiences are forcing us to recognize that we are interdependent and not independent.
We cannot survive by saying “me first.” We must say “WE first.”
It takes a great willingness to set aside the consciousness of separation we’ve all worked so hard to cultivate. And we can either choose to be pushed by the pain or pulled by the vision.
Most of us choose some of each. We’re here to be truly helpful and being TRULY helpful means helping people to see clearly the difference between choosing pain and choosing Joy. So, we must work with our minds to eliminate our attraction to painful choices.
If we’re willing the Higher Holy Spirit Self will heal our minds and that will enable us to see, know, and feel clearly the truth that liberates us from the perspective that is painful.
Today’s the perfect day to double down and deepen our commitment to know the truth that sets us free from fear and suffering. Today’s our kind of day!
