YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND UNIFIED MIND WITH SEPARATED MIND, EGO CANNOT UNDERSTAND GOD
A COURSE IN MIRACLES CONCEPTS LIKE DEFENSELESSNESS AND FORGIVENESS ARE BEYOND EGO UNDERSTANDING
For years now I tried to understand A Couse in miracles teachings on forgiveness and defenselessness; clearly, the book asks folks to forgive all wrongs done to them and to be defenseless to attacks; it says that defenselessness is the means to awakening to Christ state. I tried to make sense of these ideas and simply could not.
My eyes show me that if you do not defend your body with food, medications, clothes, shelter your body will die; if other people attack your body and you do not defend against the attack they will inflict injury to your body and you will die; empirical evidence shows me that we must defend our ego self-concepts and bodies to live yet this book keeps telling me to be defenseless.
I have concluded that we cannot use our current separated minds, ego minds, to understand defenselessness and forgiveness. Our ego minds also cannot understand love, union and unified state.
Ego separated minds understand the separated world, understand separated things; the separated mind cannot understand unified things; only unified mind, God can understand union, love, forgiveness, and defenselessness.
Albert Einstein (and other scientists) tried to use his ego separated mind to unify the four forces of nature, gravity, electromagnetism, strong and weak nuclear forces and failed; this is probably because the separated mind cannot understand unified things.
The mind that conceptualizes things in this separated world can only understand concepts, that is, divided things but cannot understand unified things; only God can understand unified things and since I am not God and do not understand unified things, I give up trying to understand certain spiritual concepts that only God can understand.
I imagine that most people are like me, and as such, are unable to use their ego separated minds to understand God and that some crooks would then claim to have experienced God hence understand forgiveness and defenselessness. Religion deals with the unknow so it tends to have many sociopaths, crooks exploiting people’s desire to know while not knowing.
Charles Buell Anderson (1926-2008), the guy who started the Endeavor Academy in Wisconsin, appears very knowledgeable about the course, but he claims to be God realized; I do not have any way to verify his claims and since I am not a mere believer, I remain skeptical, just as I am skeptical over Hindu claimed God realized people.
IF MY MIND PROJECTED OUT THIS WORLD AND CAN REMOVE IT, IT ALSO PROJECTED OUT THE WORLD OF LIGHT FORMS AND ALSO PROJECT OUT WHAT MYSTICS CALL UNIFIED EXPERIENCE; THAT IS, THE GOD EXPERIENCE IS PRODUCED BY ONE’S MIND, AFTER ALL THERE IS ONLY ONE MIND IN THE UNIVERSE
If my mind produced this world, it also produced the world of light forms and will produce the unified world, the God realization experience; only my mind produces everything that I see, experience and know.
God is in my mind, with that God mind in me I will produce the God realization experience; so, it is silly expecting an external God to give me the God experience.
I should keep quiet, and my higher mind will produce the world of light forms and finally produce the formless unified world.
