What is Enlightenment?

Thanks for wondering the issues that can come to the mind, even though they seem "instead peculiar" to you. In Enlightenment all observed pain has faded, for what but wrong-mindedness appeared to make the misperception called pain.

Suffering was the dream that Christ could leave a Supportive Creator's Mind. "If pain is real there's no God. If God is real there is no pain."(W-190.3) The latter holds true because Lord doesn't have opposite. Enlightenment entails no suffering or displeasure about ANYTHING, for Enlightenment a course in miracles  is Pure, Regular Happiness, Peace, Freedom, and Joy. Being Continuous, Enlightenment knows perhaps not of change. The illusion of susceptibility and fluctuating thoughts has gone as well. There is no ego to fall "straight back into." Soul Abides in mild Love. All pain is finished Now and nothing stays but a benefit of Stillness.

The Holy Soul is the note that Life is Eternal. The Present Time is the gateway to Eternity. The planet of pictures was a full world of illusion. Pictures are thus simple to the Holy Spirit. They were "neutralized" the instant they did actually arise.

What does this mean with regards to the second question? You can't kill what's never existed, and in the Holy Spirit's Perception of forgiveness harm is impossible. Figures were never born and never die because the world of images may be the past. It is impossible to find beginnings and endings in a script that is presently published and over long ago. There's no life in images. This is the meaning of "Hold no graven images prior to the Lord Thy God." All photographs were built to hidden the Truth from attention, and they are able to only be understood as one illusion. If illusions could possibly be divided up into living and lifeless, normal and inorganic, animate and inanimate Enlightenment could be impossible. For what's Enlightenment but Real Oneness, far beyond the possibility of section of any kind? The split brain was the illusion. Seek not to challenge the separate mind to forms and contact some forms alive and some types dead. God knows maybe not form. The split mind seemed to be the "killer" illusion, yet the Sacred Soul tells the sleeping brain that what's full and unified cannot BE split. In Paradise Mind is One Spirit, and even regarding that world forgiveness shows this Oneness. The forgiven world recognizes the unity of the relieved brain and considers that there is nothing "outside" with this single mind which desires lightly a happy, light dream. The goal of ACIM is always to desire lightly of a sinless world. This aim is significantly more than possible, it's inevitable!

For my seeming diet, "consume what is served" may be the Guidance I was handed from the Holy Nature a long time ago. Join with your brother and let no principle come involving the Love you share. This Advice has not changed. "Dinner" is obviously a backdrop for sharing the Pleasure of the Residing Moment. What the planet calls "breathing" and "eating" and "drinking" and "sleeping" are really yet in the Enlightened State. The Healed Perception considers the sameness of things since they all reveal the exact same Purpose: forgiveness. This Perspective is not "personal," for in single notion nothing is personal. God is no respecter of persons. I practically can not "take" an animal's "life" since Life is Nature and can only be extended or Provided as God Gives. "Take" does not have any indicating within my mind and because animals have not "lived" it is difficult that they could "die." The belief stated in thinking "privately take an animal's life" has many underlying assumptions which can be false. In right-mindedness it is evident that ideas are increased since they are provided away or shared, and "taking" a "life" or anything more has no meaning. All that I provide is fond of mySelf, and in giving there is number loss, no sacrifice, and nothing is ever recinded from wholeness and unity. The teacher of God does not want something that cannot be provided away. Such could be the Joy of wonders! Thinking seeds appear to be flung every-where, yet there is never even a glance back again to see where in actuality the seeds land. The vegetables are never for an "other," and since providing and receiving are the exact same the mind gets the gifts it gives. This is really the feast you find for beneath the ego's questions.

The only real problem that require be asked is just a issue that is not really ridiculous at all: Am I prepared to know that God's May and My Own are the Same? God's Will for Me is for Great Happiness. And what but that May may be the Can of Christ? Cheerfully, nothing may change Timeless Love. Thank You Lord!
