I have had limited contact with ACIM (A Course In Miracles) as I couldn’t get past
~life is an illusion~ ~life is a dream~ ~it didn’t really happen~ ~separation from God didn’t really happen~
Of course, separation from God never really happened BUT we did experience a separation from God on the 3D Earth Plane. And this separation was part of the plan. Can you remember a time you had the thought that you knew better than the deepest part of you, that you could leave the deepest part of you behind and strike out in life on your own and be an island unto yourself? I do. I thought as a kid, “I can leave the rest of you knuckleheads behind.” That was a very real experience that helped me realize that no one lives in a vacuum and that we need each other. No one can evolve without the other. Life is about realizing the Love that we are by dancing with the elements of the Earth: blood, dirt, fur and feather. Mistakes are learning experiences that grow us upwards like stately Trees with a root system intimately intertwined if we can just let go of the true illusions that separate us, that of fear, guilt and shame.
Physical Life is a blessing, not an illusion or dream to be awakened from. Spirit knows and feels love at the deepest levels through its interface with our gritty experiences. In duality the light is seen best in the darkness. It is from immersion in darkness that we reach for the light streaming in through a crack in our world of form. We begin to prefer the warmth of the love and comfort found there then begin to create a world that is filled with light and understanding. We evolve God when we hold Spirit’s hand guiding Her to the deepest levels of the Heart. Spirit is love. But Spirit feels its love through us.
Therefore, our lives have great purpose and honor. Go ahead, feel a tree. Feel its life force saying, “Hug me. I’m real and so are you.” It’s all about energy. It’s all about vibration: Love coalescing into vibrant forms which look, feel and sound solid to us but are vibrating energy. When did vibrational energy become illusion? Holograms made from Source Energy are real. Creation in 3-D is a gift.
CREATION is not a mistake, not a fall from grace but a voyage through the seas of experience to remember ourselves and realize ourselves as Love.
