Choosing Right-Minded Perception

Spirit is the Thought of God which He created like Himself. The unified spirit is God’s one Son, or Christ.

In this world, because the mind is split, the Sons of God appear to be separate. Nor do their minds seem to be joined. In this illusory state, the concept of an “individual mind” seems to be meaningful. [Mind] is therefore described in the course as if it has two parts; spirit and ego.

Spirit is the part that is still in contact with God through the Holy Spirit, Who abides in this part but sees the other part as well.

The other [ego] part of the mind is entirely illusory and makes only illusions.

Right-mindedness listens to the Holy Spirit, forgives the world, and through Christ’s vision sees the real world in its place.”

Wrong-mindedness listens to the ego and makes illusions; perceiving sin and justifying anger, and seeing guilt, disease and death as real. (A Course in Miracles, C-1.1:3-3:1;4:1;5:2;6:1)

If we align with the ego, we are in the wrong mind; we believe we have separated ourselves from our Creator and Source. Our belief makes this separated world seem real to us. The ego’s filters block the unity of Love from our awareness by only accepting what aligns with our beliefs.

Yet denial cannot make real. Though we may be wholly engaged in the illusions made by the ego’s denial, the unity of Love continues on unabated and eternally. Our right mind remembers this. The Holy Spirit is in our right mind to guide us out of wrong-mindedness and back to the recognition of reality of unified Love. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we learn to forgive the misperceptions and false beliefs and accept the Life we live in Love.

Today we choose right mindedness by stepping back from our perceptions and welcoming the Holy Spirit’s vision of Love’s oneness.
