Social media is like anything nowadays, i.e., projected thoughts using the content of the ego wrong mind. Online attacks in the neighborhood for the Course in Miracles (ACIM) are via the many comments, quotes and other postings wherein we react to our interpretation which then becomes the justification for response (T-12.I.1) or our cause of posting, etc. All students have a basic confusion between form and content and also what it really way to join why don’t we not sugar coat it: Social media marketing is forms (projected content with the ego wrong mind) from joining with the wrong mind. Therefore, from your outset this is a group of attacks until we forgive and initiate identifying (joining) with the right mind.
Even during the Course, most of us sit around online with a few form of an electronic device mindlessly doing our ego thing. Okay, some may be standing, leaning or lounging:
Chilling out and referring to the program isn’t the same task as doing hard work of studying the text and putting the foundations into practice to learn exactly what the Course means (Kenneth Wapnick, Rules for Decision).
Inside the same Rules, Wapnick also says, “What gives the ego its power is your having put together with it, your identification by using it.” Forms are projected like a defense against the opposite and so are only with the ego wrong mind and therefore they just don’t matter.
Since social media is all about forms that are fragmented projections of the ego, were then perceiving the Sonship as fragmented making larger than fifteen real. Specialness is valued being an idol placed prior to Passion for God the ones perceived differences keep up with the separation in the mind. Absolutely any fragmented attribute we judge in another online (or anywhere) should be affecting all of the Sonship since we’re really One inch reality. That is why attack isn’t discrete and has to be relinquished (T-7.VI.1).
Discrete means, “Individually separate and distinct.” All attack of any type is similar and is designed to divide the entirety of the Sonship since it attacks (fragments) the Sonship via differences instead of sameness. Hence, we are able to see why Wapnick would claim that it can be silly to make use of the Course as a weapon if it is clearly a training course situated in unity.
Finally, let’s add two other word symbol definitions website traffic are used through the Course:
Demonstrate: Demonstrate the existence or truth of something giving proof or evidence.
Reminder: An issue that causes a person to remember something.
From the Course, “To teach is to demonstrate (M-in.2) and we’re always teaching, or demonstrating the ego or God every moment, i.e., the information mind which we have decided to join or identify. For contrast, this content with the ego is many projected and other forms; along with the content of the right mind is unity, sameness, i.e., Love (no projections). There isn’t any exceptions. It’s either.
Our brothers certainly are a part of us. These are the ones who teach us who were for our learning is a result of what we have taught them (T-9.VI.3) – the ego or God – always. As the dreamer with the dream (T-27.VII.), our dream figures (those online along with us and our brothers) are going to do what we should are dreaming they are doing determined by what we’ve taught (demonstrated). Therefore, they’re innocent as it is our dream. We taught separation or a murderous attack thought against God and so all of us demonstrate said attack in numerous fragmented forms. Yet whenever we forgive ourselves for the purpose we have taught (chosen) instead of attacking, look for who were through our brothers that are precisely the same.
When we are posting quotes, comments or use Course language “at” another we are really attacking (unloving reminders). If we take into consideration how “at” feels we know we presume in separation and differences. The commands or demands in the ego have to be answered “at” a separated fragment (brother) therefore we still demonstrate our original attack thought and repress our guilt. Course students go and have online with these many ideas of specialness along with their unloving reminders which fragments mental performance and maintains the separation (the other of unity) which is the problem.
Through the social networking platform to non-public pages, online friends and groups, forms will be the focus on social networking. Forms do not matter. Once we say they do, we’re going to automatically demonstrate the ego and turn into unloving and unkind, i.e., we harm others.
Surely there are occassions when a stern reminder may be loving and helpful, but often it’s not. Again, always use being normal as a criterion. Normal individuals the use of somebody that is sick (and then any mind that believes it really is separate is sick), especially a buddy or loved one, are kind. You don’t need to to become spiritual giant or understand stand the difference between non-duality and duality to know that when someone is sick plus pain, kindness should be provided to see your face. While i have been stressing, once you tend not to examine fear or guilt, they are going to be pushed down in your unconscious, and just as automatically will probably be project out – always. Inevitably, you then end up judging and attacking other individuals (Kenneth Wapnick, The Healing Power of Kindness: Vol. 1, Kindle location 149, underline and parenthesis addition mine).
I would not have believed these people even existed inside the so-called A training course in Miracles community. Having been initiated into this community, I began to refer to it a household that necessary to practice the Course it claimed to believe in (Gary Renard, Your Immortal Reality, Kindle Location 466).
To say this in another way, social media marketing belongs to the dream about devastation, a murderous thought against God. It is the seeking without (in forms) to prevent looking within which is very heart of social media marketing:
The hunt implies about to catch whole within and fear to take a look upon your devastation, but prefer to seek outside yourself for which you are (T-29.VII.4). Suppose 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 employ forms since it is exemplary kindness of mind which vision is of sameness and unity – One. If absolutely nothing is different, there’s nothing to address for starters reaches home with God while in this world and sees only Christ in brothers. You are likely to demonstrate something quite unique:
(2:1) In their mind [those who’re sick] God’s teachers come, to represent another choice that they can had forgotten. Your only function will be an indication to others that they’ll increase the risk for same choice you did – not necessarily through words, but over the love and peace you imply to them. (2:2-3) Be simple presence of a tutor of God is a reminder. His thoughts obtain the right to question just what the patient has known as true. The sufferer – really all of us – has accepted the ego’s thought system as true.
To repeat this important caution, most of the time you would never repeat the words, “The same choice I cause you to will make, because our minds are certainly one.” Love’s presence that is away from ego’s thought strategy is what teaches, not by your words, but with the teacher you have selected in your head, the presence inside you. You’re likely to be teaching ACIM and have every theological point correct, in case there’s no love in your heart, about to catch teaching ACIM (Ibid Kindness, Vol.1, Kindle Locations 396-399, underline mine).
A tutor of God is individuals who have accepted their function, which is to teach and discover forgiveness… We teach what we are learning and, even as train it to say, we learn it (What It Way to Be described as a Teacher Of God, Part 1, FACIM, Kenneth Wapnick).
God’s peace is recognized to start with by only a very important factor: In most way it really is totally unlike all previous experiences. It calls under consideration nothing that went before. It brings with it no past associations. It’s a new thing entirely (M-20.2).
The ego commands action (like posting comments, quotes and ultizing language “at” others). The Holy Spirit doesn’t command. It merely reminds (T-5.II.7). Remember, it’s one or the other, i.e., an unloving or loving reminder. – always.
Within the Appendix of, “The Healing Power Kindness: Vol. 1,” Wapnick reprinted, “Do No Harm to Anyone.” This is a short essay on implementing the Hippocratic oath into the practice of ACIM, i.e., a straightforward reminder for those students of A Course in Miracles who seek to utilize its principles to living in the world (Kindle location 678). He explores how you must to experience a close and honest examination of the way we being previously using others inside our lives to satisfy our desires and requirements, and just how it’s harmful because we have no regard for that welfare of others. Using people for the needs is an attack in it 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 will be the results of judgment. Oahu is the dishonest act that follows a dishonest thought. It’s a verdict of guilt upon a brother, and thus on oneself. Oahu is the end of peace along with the denial of learning (M-4.IV.1)… (being an unloving reminder from the attack considered to others thereby ourselves)… Thus, Jesus is trying to explain 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 at the beginning of his training – which a student of the Course in Miracles must discover harmfulness have to be totally undone or although never learn the Holy Spirit’s lessons (M-4.IV.1:8-11, Ibid, Kindle location 739, parenthesis addition mine)
As not kind (no harming and no attacking) we can’t learn nor see the kind principles from the Course because we aren’t putting them into practice. We’re justing sitting around talking online with the ego via unloving reminders as attacks all of which are types of exactly the same murderous thought because we refuse to look within and actually perform forgiveness work.
