The Relinquishment of Attack

This post is part of a series entitled: Reflections from A Course in Miracles. We are currently reviewing Chapter 6, section III. The Relinquishment of Attack.

This chapter starts with a review reminders for us:

1. Every idea begins in the mind of the thinker.

2. Wisdom comes from the spirit, it does not require the approval of the sense perceptions of the human body, “It is known”

3. Each of us has direct access to spirit, this is the universal consciousness and is not effected by the perceptions of the ego

4. Spirit is eternal and perfect and cannot be defiled in any way

5. Judgments of exclusion always come from the ego

6. By teaching an idea to another, you reinforce your belief in it. It is important to only teach ideas that are whole and inclusive, every lesson you teach, you are learning.

“Teach only love, for that is what you are.”

By teaching love, you learn to love. By teaching inclusion, you learn to include. As you teach, so you will learn.  Whatever you project, you grow and whatever you reproduce, you believe.

While Jesus was tortured during the crucifixion and his body was brutally injured to the point of death, his spirit was not harmed. On the third day, he rose again. The lesson here is that we cannot be harmed and we are divinely perfect as spirit. Only the ego bases a decision on fear. Fear seeks to exclude, because it perceives differences, spirit is inclusive and sees only equality.

“The only way to have peace is to teach peace. By teaching peace you must learn it in yourself, because you cannot teach and dissociate. “

“Teach only love, and learn that love is yours and you are love.”
