If you’ve ever doubted you are truly limitless, this passage from the Course, will put that doubt to rest…LITERALLY!
“…I would not ask you to do things you cannot do, and it is impossible I can do things you cannot do…” Unless we chose to believe Jesus is lying to us…how can we possibly misinterpret what he’s saying here?
We are truly limitless.
That means we can do anything. Not anything we want (that just keeps us playing ego’s sick game) but anything He asks.
But I don’t hear what He asks, you say, so how can I do what He asks?
Who doesn’t hear?
Only the ego mind doesn’t hear…because it can’t. It’s only the ego mind that wants to do what it wants to do.
It’s like a bratty teenager who tunes out his parents good advice. The teen literally can’t hear the parent and goes off on a destructive path of his own doing that always leads to no good.
So if we want to hear what He asks, and be our unlimited selves we have to be out of our ego mind and in our holy mind we share with Him (Spirit, Higher Self, God, Creator…by any name you wish to use).
That’s why many times when we hear, “You’re out of your mind!” it’s usually something brilliant!
This whole process of healing is done by being out of our EGO mind because that’s the only place where we can tune into Him who asks and knows we have no limits.
How do we get there?
By saying yes to the call of the heart; the call of Spirit; that still small voice of love that asks us to choose it once again. In fact it’s even easier than this. As soon as we ask for Spirit’s help or even think of being with Spirit…we’re there!
Which is why A Course in Miracles, begins by saying…
This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is behind what can be taught. It does aim, however at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natal inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.
Summed up as…
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Furthermore we’re told over and over…
We need do nothing.
By saying yes to to call, the pathway, “…the removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence…” is given.
As the blocks come down, our ability to hear goes up. And just like any relationship, our connection gets stronger, while our attachment to the one we’re leaving gets weaker, like an old lover who once fascinated us until we realize he’s a phony and can’t be trusted.
Only the ego mind doesn’t trust. Only the ego mind wants what it wants instead of what is given. This is misperception. This is sickness. And we all know what that looks like: pain, fear, anxiety, depression, lack, jealousy, guilt and on and on.
Are you ready for a better way?
The way of love earns our trust by showering us with miracles. So trust. Trust that all we need for this journey back to the mind of Love is heavily reinforced by what we really want.
