To gain the most from A Course in Miracles Text Made Simple, we recommend that
you read the corresponding chapter and section in the Text of the Second or
Third Edition of A Course in Miracles published by the Foundation for Inner Peace.
Read ACIM Chapter 15, Section IX (pages 322-324)
The ego thought system reflects the desire to see separation rather than oneness. The ego thought system teaches that separate bodies are real and therefore separate minds are real. But we are now seeing that it is just a false thought system, a facade that is trying to hide the truth of continuous Love. We see the facade of separate things is not reality. A false thought system is just that — a false idea that could never be true. As we learn to see every separate form (the facade) for what it is, just a false idea that could never be true, we become more willing to let it go.
We are now seeing that we have been giving strength to the idea that separation is real and we just as easily can remove our support from this false idea. We can become willing to join with the truth instead of the ego’s lies. We join with the truth through the help of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that brings us the holy instant and the attraction of God.
The following is one way of moving into a state of mind in which you let the Holy Spirit help you. As you read each thought below, be with it wholly. Let it carry you to the Holy Spirit’s bridge of return to the truth.
Think of the Holy Spirit as a bus driver… And on the front of His bus the destination says, “Heaven.” You remember that the Holy Spirit can take you to the awareness of your true Identity. He knows the way to Heaven. He knows the way to everlasting happiness. He knows that in Heaven you can never experience death. In Heaven there is eternal bliss, eternal peace, eternal joy. Only God’s Love is there. It is everywhere you are and everywhere everyone is. God’s Love is the Source of our happiness. It is the Source of our joy. God’s Love is the source of our peace…
Because you would let yourself experience this, you get on the Holy Spirit’s bus… and you notice immediately how comfortable it is… It is the perfect temperature for you… The seat is the most comfortable you ever sat in… The whole interior of the bus is set up so that you can relax now… You know you are safe here… the Holy Spirit knows what will help you be prepared for taking this journey with Him and He brings that to you now…
He knows you better than you do and He knows what will be helpful to you… He prepares you personally to take the journey with Him… He helps you relax… He helps you soften… You let Him help you… He is helping you now… You are open and receptive to His help……
He is leading and you are following…
The Holy Spirit tells you He is taking you on an inner journey—a journey to the Center of your Self… But to take this journey you must be willing to relax… and let go… You are going to be carried… All your needs will be met… You are in the ultimate Expert’s hands… the ultimate Professional is taking you Home… to where you truly belong…
You trust in the Holy Spirit’s service to you… You just know you are in safe hands…
You are brought to a state of mind where there is peace… You let it in… You rest in this state of mind… You let the feeling of peace wash through you… You join with peace… You take it in… You would be one with it…
As you feel the peace you realize you really are being guided by Holy Spirit’s healing Light… Your trust that you can really join with God’s peace grows… You are proving to yourself that you can do it, that you can let your awareness of God’s peace in… and feel it… You let yourself be led deeper… into Holy Spirit’s peace… You let it soak in…
Your awareness of God’s soothing peace is strong now… You realize the Holy Spirit is guiding you to the experience of your true Home… It is a state of being the peace and Love that is your true nature… You love this experience and feel a deep desire to let your awareness of it come in even stronger…
You are aware that you are this beingness of Love… and so is everyone… You become aware of the peace and joy that are inherent in this Love that is everywhere…
You realize that you have moved past the facade of separation… past the facade of differences and are experiencing the fact that Love is all that is real… …
The facade of bodies and separate things can no longer hide the truth from you… You know better… Behind every facade, only Love is there…
You know that you want to take this awareness to your daily “life” experience. You let yourself practice being on Holy Spirit’s bus. You practice letting Holy Spirit bring you to a state of mind where you can see past the facade of separation to the truth that we are one Light. There are no differences.
