To Change Your MindFeb 06, 2022
“Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” ACIM T-21.In.1:7
For those of you that are A Course in Miracles students, what does this passage mean? Well, the world of form is a projection of the belief in separation, the ego-mind. And so, when you try to change the world, you continue to operate from the ego and the belief in sin, guilt, and fear.
Jesus is so poetic, and the beauty that Helen showed to scribe his words has demonstrated a deep love, affection and trust. I smiled within at Jesus' simplicity when I began to wake up and the true meaning of his words dawned upon me. You see, to change your mind, as Jesus guides, is to change your mind from the wrong mind of ego to locate the right mind of peace and love that has been concealed deep within the darkness of the subconscious mind.
To change your mind is to not try to maintain a level of peace and positivity with your awareness in the brain, for the wholeness of holiness and the truth of peace and positivity belongs to the right mind buried within. You will never know the true meaning of the Course whilst bound to ego-identification. How do you know you are still aligned to ego thinking and thus interpreting the meaning of the Course as the ego allows? Your awareness is in your brain, and you have separating thoughts of judgment and attack swirl through.
Many years ago, I was listening to an interview with Eckhart Tolle as he was describing his awakening process. He mentioned the complete stillness that is beyond the ego that the awakened know. At the time, I ached to have his experience, for I was filled with thoughts of self-doubt, not good enough, and feeling undeserving and unworthy. I did not understand at the time that this belongs to the false self that is home to littleness, lack, and lovelessness. When my ego-mind finally cracked open through trauma, and my awareness fell deep within, which is where The Treasure Map takes you, I located the right mind of peace and love. I found the inner voice that we share with Jesus, from where Helen scribed the Course.
And there it was, the true meaning of this passage that has been misinterpreted by the ego. To change your mind is to move from the wrong mind to the right, that leads to One-mindedness, awakening. Of course, this is true, for you must move out of bodily-identification to find your being of Perfect Love before you wake.
Remember, the right mind is not you being all peaceful and positive from the wrong mind (ego thinking, brain), but to locate the right mind of being that has been hidden within the subconscious. I remember when I first explained this to an ACIM group and a man rushed in to condemn and laugh at me. I smiled within, which is what the Course speaks of. For the ego shadows cannot touch those that are safe with God, which is the truth of holiness that belongs to the right mind of peace and love.
Change your mind today, by forgiving within to locate the right mind, and as you purify your thinking from fear to love, you will change your world from dark to light, as what is within is seen without.
Much love, peace, and Truforgiveness,
