Social media is like anything nowadays, i.e., projected thoughts together with the content of the ego wrong mind. Online attacks locally for any Course in Miracles (ACIM) are through the many comments, quotes and also other postings wherein we react to our interpretation which then becomes the justification for the response (T-12.I.1) or our reason for posting, etc. A lot of students use a basic confusion between form and content in addition to what it ways to join let’s quickly not sugar coat it: Social websites is forms (projected content in the ego wrong mind) from joining using the wrong mind. Therefore, through the outset it’s a number of attacks until we forgive and begin identifying (joining) with the proper mind.
Even in the Course, we all sit around online with a few sort of an electronic device mindlessly doing our ego thing. Okay, some could possibly be standing, leaning or lounging:
Chilling out and speaking about the program is not the same thing as doing the difficult work of checking out the text and putting the foundations into practice to discover exactly what the Course means (Kenneth Wapnick, Rules for Decision).
From the same Rules, Wapnick also says, “What provides the ego its power is the having joined with it, your identification with it.” Forms are projected being a defense against the opposite and are simply the ego wrong mind and thus they cannot matter.
Since social networking is centered on forms that are fragmented projections in the ego, were then perceiving the Sonship as fragmented which makes larger than fifteen real. Specialness is valued just as one idol placed prior to the Appreciation for God and those perceived differences take care of the separation within the mind. Absolutely any fragmented attribute we judge in another online (or anywhere) must be observed in every one of the Sonship since we’re really One inch reality. That’s the reason attack isn’t discrete and must be relinquished (T-7.VI.1).
Discrete means, “Individually separate and distinct.” All attack in any form is the same which is meant to divide the whole lot of the Sonship because it attacks (fragments) the Sonship via differences as opposed to sameness. Hence, we are able to see why Wapnick would point out that it really is silly to work with the program as a weapon when it’s clearly training situated in unity.
Finally, let’s add two other word symbol definitions because these are used through the Course:
Demonstrate: Demonstrate the existence or truth of something by giving proof or evidence.
Reminder: A thing that causes a person to remember something.
In the Course, “To teach is usually to demonstrate (M-in.2) and we’re always teaching, or demonstrating the ego or God every moment, i.e., this content mind in which we have decided to join or identify. For contrast, this article of the ego is many projected and various forms; as well as the content with the right system is unity, sameness, i.e., Love (no projections). There are no exceptions. It’s one or other.
Our brothers can be a a part of us. Those are the ones who teach us who we are for the learning is caused by that which you have taught them (T-9.VI.3) – the ego or God – always. Because the dreamer from the dream (T-27.VII.), our dream figures (those online along with us and our brothers) are going to do what we are dreaming they certainly depending on what we’ve taught (demonstrated). Therefore, they are innocent because it is our dream. We taught separation or possibly a murderous attack thought against God and so all of us demonstrate said attack in lots of fragmented forms. Yet as we forgive ourselves for the purpose we have taught (chosen) as opposed to attacking, find who we have been through our brothers who are the identical.
While we are posting quotes, comments or use Course language “at” another we are really attacking (unloving reminders). Whenever we consider how “at” feels we realize we believe in separation and differences. The commands or demands of the ego has to be answered “at” a separated fragment (brother) so we continue to demonstrate our original attack thought and repress our guilt. Course students go and obtain online with one of these many ideas of specialness in addition to their unloving reminders which fragments your head and maintains the separation (the contrary of unity) which is problem.
In the social media marketing platform to non-public pages, online friends and groups, forms will be the focus on social media marketing. Forms tend not to matter. Whenever we say they are doing, we are going to automatically demonstrate the ego and stay unloving and unkind, i.e., we harm others.
Surely periodically a reminder may be loving and helpful, but very often it’s not. Again, it is best to use being normal as a criterion. Normal people the presence of someone who is sick (as well as any mind that believes it is separate is sick), especially an associate or loved one, are kind. There is no need becoming a spiritual giant or understand stand the real difference between non-duality and duality to learn if someone is sick as well as in pain, kindness needs to be provided to that individual. While i have already been stressing, once you tend not to take a look at fear or guilt, they are going to automatically be pushed down within your unconscious, and as automatically is going to be project out – always. Inevitably, then you definitely wind up judging and attacking other people (Kenneth Wapnick, The Healing Strength of Kindness: Vol. 1, Kindle location 149, underline and parenthesis addition mine).
I wouldn’t have believed they even existed from the so-called A training course in Miracles community. Being previously initiated into this community, I began to refer to it children that required to practice the Course it claimed to think in (Gary Renard, Your Immortal Reality, Kindle Location 466).
To convey this in another way, social media is part of the dream of devastation, a murderous thought against God. It’s the seeking without (in forms) to prevent looking within the actual very heart of social websites:
The search implies you are not whole within and fear to appear upon your devastation, but would rather seek outside yourself for you are (T-29.VII.4). Imagine if you looked within and saw no sin? This “fearful” question for you is one the ego never asks (T-23.IV.3).
A loving reminder has not even attempt to use forms as it’s exemplary kindness of mind which vision is of sameness and unity Body. If there is nothing different, you’ll find nothing to attack first is a home with God when it’s in our planet and sees only Christ in brothers. You might demonstrate something quite unique:
(2:1) To them [those who’re sick] God’s teachers come, to represent another choice that they had forgotten. Your only function is usually to be a stern reminder to others they can increase the risk for same choice you did – definitely not through words, but from the love and peace you imply to them. (2:2-3) The easy existence of a teacher of God is often a reminder. His thoughts ask for the right to question what are the patient has known as true. The sufferer – really we all – has accepted the ego’s thought system as true.
To continue this important caution, quite often you’d never say the words, “The same choice I cause you to be can make, because the brain are one.” Love’s presence that’s outside of the ego’s thought method is what teaches, not because of your words, but by the teacher you’ve selected in your mind, the presence within you. You could be teaching ACIM and obtain every theological point correct, in case there is absolutely no love inside your heart, about to catch teaching ACIM (Ibid Kindness, Vol.1, Kindle Locations 396-399, underline mine).
An instructor of God is those who have accepted his / her function, which would be to teach and learn forgiveness… We teach what we should are learning and, even as train it to say, we learn it (What It Ways to Be considered a Teacher Of God, Part 1, FACIM, Kenneth Wapnick).
God’s peace is recognized at first just by another thing: In most way it can be totally unlike all previous experiences. It calls under consideration nothing that went before. It brings from it no past associations. It is a new thing entirely (M-20.2).
The ego commands action (like posting comments, quotes and using language “at” others). The Holy Spirit does not command. It merely reminds (T-5.II.7). Remember, it’s either, i.e., an unloving or loving reminder. – always.
Inside the Appendix of, “The Healing Power Kindness: Vol. 1,” Wapnick reprinted, “Do No Harm to Anyone.” It is just a short essay on implementing the Hippocratic oath into the practice of ACIM, i.e., an easy reminder for those students of the Course in Miracles seeking to use its principles to living in the planet (Kindle location 678). He explores how you must to experience a close and honest examination of the way we previously being using others within our lives in order to meet our desires as well as, and how it really is harmful because we have no regard to the welfare of others. Using people for our needs can be an attack with them which engenders guilt in us (Kindle location 699). A “eureka” moment occurs – I finally realize I have tried personally the written word for attack (Kindle location 709, underlining mine).
Harm is the result of judgment. It is the dishonest act that follows a dishonest thought. It is a verdict of guilt upon a brother, and for that reason on oneself. Oahu is the end of peace and also the denial of learning (M-4.IV.1)… (just as one unloving reminder from the attack considered to others and thus ourselves)… Thus, Jesus is explaining to us how our judgments of other people are preceded by our judgment of ourselves (M-4.IV.1, and Ibid, Kindle location 729). It states unequivocally – fairly early in his training – that the student of your Course in Miracles must discover harmfulness should be totally undone or he would never discover the Holy Spirit’s lessons (M-4.IV.1:8-11, Ibid, Kindle location 739, parenthesis addition mine)
If we are not kind (no harming and no attacking) we cannot learn nor view the kind principles of the Course because we aren’t putting them into practice. We’re justing hanging out talking online together with the ego via unloving reminders as attacks which are all forms of the identical murderous thought because we won’t look within and perform forgiveness work.
