I wish to ask you in what A Course in Miracles means by Holy Relationship. In a single part of the book it talks about "entering the ark" together, and it almost sounds as though you need another specific person to be able to awaken what is a course in miracles. Therefore, I think I approach each new person with the expectation that maybe THIS might be the connection that reflects enlightenment if you ask me, and I to them! Am I taking this too literally? Or do you actually have to have another to help you awaken?


I appreciate your time so much and many thanks for the help if you ask me and others. I many thanks and I thank God for you. Namaste.




David Hoffmeister: Thanks for the openness and your willingness to look deeply at what is underneath these topics and issues. A Course in Miracles teaches that the split mind contains both the issue (the ego) and the Solution (the Holy Spirit). When they're brought together, only One remains.


The body and the entire world are always the focus of ego's perspective, for it seeks to create real problems and struggles on the planet and to prevent the inner Healing Correction of the Holy Spirit. The ego's distorted world is the merchandise of identity confusion, an outpicturing of the belief that it is possible to create an identity which God didn't create. The ego is this identity problem and it was Answered or forgiven by the Holy Spirit the instant it appeared to arise. This one problem might be described as an authority problem or perhaps a confusion in who's mcdougal of Reality. The mind that believes in the fact of the time-space cosmos has a get a grip on issue, for it believes that it can make itself. This ego mind also thinks it is in competition with God, although that is pushed out of conscious awareness. This unconscious ego thought system is exposed in the A Course in Miracles Workbook lessons, and for reference Workbook Lesson 13 contains a great example of this unveiling.
