- Miracles are examples of right thinking.
Reality contact at all levels becomes strong & accurate, thus permitting correct delineation of intra- and inter- personal boundaries.
*As the term, ‘intra’ means ‘within’, so the communication that takes place within a person is called intrapersonal communication. On the other hand, the term ‘inter’ means ‘between’, so when the communication occurs between two or more persons, it is said to be interpersonal communication. https://keydifferences.com/difference-between-intrapersonal-and-interpersonal-communication.html
*Delineation = the action of indicating the exact position of a border or boundary, or describing or portraying something precisely.
*Projection on the other hand blurs all boundaries. I am grateful for this sentiment because it establishes in my mind that boundaries are acceptable even in the Oneness that we are in Christ.
As a result, the doer sees the truth as God created it.
32. This is what meant by the point on “perspective adjustment.”A miracle is a correction factor introduced into false thinking by ME.
*Here I would say the ME is Christ, who is also the one who brought the false thinking into being initially, so it would be His to remove. Do not be confused here. The Christ is the Whole that is in each of us. Jesus is simply the identity he used here with Helen so she would have context for who she was dealing with.
*I have found as I have grown in this Course that The Christ is something that I am able to identify more and more. And as my false ego calms down or becomes quieter as I train my ear to the Holy Spirit I am not afraid of losing my identity as an individual and my joy is increased exponentially.
It acts as a catalyst, shaking up erroneous perception and snapping it into place.
This correction factor places man under the Atonement principle, where his perception is healed.
Until this has occurred, perception of the Divine Order is impossible.
True depth perception becomes possible only at the highest order of perceptual integration.
The Spiritual eye is the mechanism of miracles, because what the Spiritual eye perceives IS truth.
*This is revealed through the power of the Holy Spirit, connected to and referred to by many as intuition or insight, even gut feelings. When we justify behavior or make excuses for behavior of our-self or others we separate ourselves from this “sight”. Jesus spoke of it on earth, “He who has eyes let him see”.
The Spiritual eye perceives both the Creations of God AND the creations
Among the creations of man, it can also separate the true from the false by its ability to perceive totally rather than selectively.
*In the Mormon church I knew this as discernment. In my walk in the Course I find I must ask and wait for confirmation, but my instincts are proven correct more often than not. It is not always pleasant to be privy to such information. I hear this often among those who have had near death experiences who are able to see clearly the motivations of people and even know their thoughts. Without understanding the full benefit of the Miracle, they do not have the ability to “perceive totally” and this causes a distinct burden that some feel very heavy to bear.
*Perceiving totally has to do with recognizing Christ in everything and understanding that any chaos is caused by His confusion which is possible to correct.
It thus becomes the proper instrument for reality testing, which always involves the necessary distinction between the true and the false.
*Truth being that which is of God and the false being that which was brought about by the guilt and shame Christ felt when He thought He had separated from God, The Father.
*It sounds like Christianity doesn’t it. It is not though. Christianity is based on shame, guilt, punishment, sacrifice, death, and suffering. It is based on sin and separation. Truth does not have any of those things.
*Make God IS as the only truth you will accept and those other things simply have to fall away and the path for the recognition of the union of God and humanity is undeniable.
May this serve us as we walk with the Wakening Christ.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
