Healing and the Changelessness of the Mind

This post is part of a series entitled: Reflections from a Course in Miracles. This is Chapter 7, The Gifts of the Kingdom, Section V Healing and the changelessness of Mind, part three.

We have learned a great deal about our two minds; the primitive ego mind and the spiritual mind or intuition. We have also learned how to discern between the two. Ego always seeks its own survival and is exclusive and fearful. Spirit always seeks to include. Once we understand this concept, we can begin to be vigilant of our thoughts and begin to heal ourselves. In healing ourselves we begin to treat others in this same, healing way, which in turn helps him to heal himself.

Wisdom is innate knowledge and does not require the sense perceptions of the body for confirmation.  By teaching this, we learn it and in learning it we begin to recognize it in others. Once we have learned to police our thoughts, this vigilance grows stronger and stronger and draws more spiritual knowledge to us. Like a satellite, we send a signal into the universe that draws toward us things that will reinforce these new ideals. This gives our new thoughts credence and strengthens it further in return.

This powerful light you now carry with you comes with the ability to enlighten others.

“Your mind is so powerful a light that you can look into theirs and enlighten them, as I can enlighten yours.”

The universal consciousness is a concept I have spoken of before. To me this exemplifies the mind of God. It is when we work together as one mind that we reunite all of creation.
