Hello mighty companions! I posted this under my forgiveness video on Day 2 of the LTC event, and I thought I'd repost here in case it is helpful! Some time ago, I was inspired to search through ACIM for all of the references to what the Holy Spirit does FOR us. I was blown away at how many references there are that point to the many things the Holy Spirit does on our behalf. I posted this list on my website both as a blog post and as a downloadable PDF. I'll provide both links below. Here's a quick snapshot of what the Holy Spirit does FOR us: - Undoes error for us - Decides for God for us - Removes hallucinations (illusions) from our mind for us - Keeps error unreal for us - Knows our value for us - Remembers God’s will for us - Interprets for us - Accomplishes for us - Awoke for us - Remembers for us - Judges for us - Sees for us - Learns for us - Unlearns for us - Makes decisions for us... and so much more! I've found that reading through this list transports me into a state of feeling completely cared for by the Holy Spirit. We're truly asked to do so little! Here is the version on my blog: https://fromanxietytolove.com/all-that-holy-spirit-does-for-us/ Here is the downloadable PDF version of the exact same post: https://fromanxietytolove.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/All-that-Holy-Spirit-does-FOR-us.pdf I hope you love this list as much as I do! 💕 The Holy Spirit ROCKS!! 💕 And big thanks to @Elizabeth Geer for reminding me of this!
As a teacher of God (and we're all God's teachers) how do you explain or otherwise work around observed phenomena that the course says don't exist and aren't real, without also referencing or implying a duality? For example, the ACIM concepts of real and unreal are themselves a duality applied as a teaching and communication tool. Teacher and student are also Course terms that exist as polarities. Is duality the forbidden fruit of ACIM or is it just a symbollic (conceptual) framework and useful communication tool?
Hi everyone. I am really battling to get the balance between spirituality and Christianity. I have no doubt about God but I am very confused about the Jesus issue. Many of you talk about Christ consciousness as if Jesus was not actually the son of God but rather someone who understood what it meant to be one with God and he taught us very valuable lessons. I am trying to understand if what you are saying is that He was not actually the son of God any more than we are children/reflections of God. If that is what you believe, did He not rise again from the dead to save the world? If you do still believe in Jesus as the church teaches us to believe in Him, does this come back to the fact that only if someone accepts Jesus as their saviour can they share in spiritual awakening? I am getting the impression from this group and the teachings that spiritual awakening is for everyone no matter your religion. The law of one, in my opinion, makes this open to anyone who grasps the concept and lives according to that truth. This however leaves me very confused about the Jesus issue. Is He more symbolic, or was He real? If not actually the son of God, then the basis of Christianity falls flat on its face. What about all the proof. I am so ready for spiritual awakening as I have always known there is more, but I am finding it difficult to know how to move on from so much of the conditioning. If I can have the answers on how to deal with this, it would really help. I guess what I am finding confusing is that most of the teachings still refer to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and scripture is so often used so clearly you are not fighting the idea of Christianity totally but what about other religions? Any help or clarity on this would be great. Thanks to All in this community.
@Antoinette Spence Wonderful stuff! We’ve all been taught to go by the experience of others’. I realised that all that I’ve ever learned has been ‘told’ to me. So I’m spending a lot of time unlearning…and going from my own direct experience.

This came up today in the Year 1-3 Daily Lesson live via @Christian Steiner (this bro asks really great questions, ya'll). We recognize a somewhat advanced perspective, since the question would not occur to the one who still believes salvation is available within the dream. This question also marks a profound inflection point on the spiritual path. ACIM eventually lands us in the understanding that we are an extension of God, and our purpose is to enable God to experience Itself. We can think of separation and Oneness as two sides of the same coin or polarities similar to hot/cold, masculine/feminine or the yin/yang. We can't know hot without the experience of cold or masculine without feminine; each is only known by and from the perspective of the other, and neither has relevance without both. This is how we can think of separation and Oneness fitting together, and this idea extends into unreality vs. reality and dreaming vs. awake. We literally fall asleep into the illusion of separation to provide God the experience (many, many trillions of experiences) of awakening to the reality of Oneness. Ultimately, that "why am I here" breaks down into a divine mystery but whatever it is, it's no different from a surfer turning up the wave just to surf back down, or the skier/snowboarder carving left so they can again carve to the right. We get to do that forever in love and in service to God.💜 I'm reminded of a beautiful scene at the end of Wes Anderson's film Asteriod City where the story characters, who are all playing the role of actors in play (how fitting is that!), begin chanting "You can't wake up if you don't fall asleep." This is like a Zen riddle and when followed to where it points the divine mystery appears, symbolized by the extraterrestrial offering up the asteroid that is the centerpiece of the entire film. Blessings. 🙏 You can't wake up if you don't fall asleep. - YouTube
I love this post. I’m starting year 1 in Jan, so the idea of two being meaningless when also referencing hot/cold is still a bit lost on me…but we gotta start somewhere 😁 I do get that we can’t know hot, if we haven’t experienced cold and I like the analogy of the surfer/skier. Super helpful, thanks!
