1. Individual healing sessions via Skype
 
I have been giving healing sessions for over 30 years, and have now decided to offer healing sessions via Skype. When I travel and give workshops I am often asked for a session but have virtually no time available. Recently I gave a healing session via Skype and I noticed it was effective. The client and I both felt we were in the same room together. As A Course in Miracles states, Ņall minds are joinedÓ, so perhaps I should not be surprised. Time and space are ego illusions, not SpiritÕs.

Does it take time to do A Course in Miracles?

Salvation is no more than a reminder this world is not your home. Its laws are not imposed on you, its values are not yours. And nothing that you think you see in it is really there at all. This is seen and understood as each one takes his part in its undoing, as he did in making it. He has the means for either, as he always did.
A Course in Miracles T-25.VI.6.

Undoing the world is a process, whereby we let go our attachments and fears in connection with the ego's world. Instead we start to see the world as a classroom where our teacher is the Holy Spirit or Jesus, where the activities of our day are lessons in which we can learn to change our perception and forgive. Process implies time, a journey we take. The Course tells us that we are still at home and thus our journey is without distance. On hearing words like this we can be tempted to believe we can jump in one go and realise immediately that we are the Christ. This has lead some Course students to think that we only have to say "I am the Christ" and they will instantly arrive at enlightenment. In theory that is possible and one day we will all make that step. However, this realisation comes at the end of the spiritual path and comes at the "cost" of our individuality, uniqueness, specialness and self image. Are we ready to say "I am not a woman/ man/ body/ parent/ child etc.?" Unless we are ready to release our illusion of separation our fear will always block this realisation.

It is pointless to ask the Holy Spirit for enlightenment now when he knows we could not survive the shock. The Holy Spirit would never give us anything that would increase our fear. Jesus is well aware of this when he says, "Fear not that you will be abruptly lifted up and hurled into reality. Time is kind, and if you use it on behalf of reality, it will keep gentle pace with you in your transition." T-16.VI.8.

It takes a time to go back home to God; a process is needed. However, we can make it as slow or fast as we choose. If we use the sun as an analogy for the the ever-present Christ in our mind, then obscuring clouds are like the ego thoughts - both good and bad - that block the awareness of our spiritual reality. Our task, with the help of the Holy Spirit, is to remove the clouds. To look, with acceptance, within our mind at all our murderous ego thoughts is a difficult and unpleasant task. Denial and projection seems a more comfortable alternative to the vigilance the Course asks for. If we could easily choose enlightenment Jesus would not have given us a workbook of mind training that takes at least a year to complete. And then tell us it's only a beginning!

We do not have to work at creating love, joy or truth because that is how we were created. That which is given to us by our Creator was not given in time and therefore cannot be learned. Learning implies time. God does not know of time - that is one of our miscreations so we could experience separation. Most of us are very invested in this space-time illusion and although we are beginning to tire of it, (otherwise we would not be interested in a spiritual path), it can be easy to mistake our readiness for enlightenment. Not wanting to put in the hard work involved we can be tempted, with the help of peer group pressure, to imagine we have made the jump and put on a false display of spiritual achievement. A permanent "plastic smile" can be one of the unfortunate outcomes of this illusion.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, an eastern teacher of non-duality, likened the process of growth and enlightenment to that of a fruit growing on a tree. It takes time for the fruit to ripen and when it is ready it suddenly drops to the ground, never to return. The fall of the fruit would be analogous to us being ready to let go of the ego and enter the real world. If a fruit is nearly ripe a sudden wind could dislodge it. Similarly, if a person was close to awaking from the dream of separation, an encounter with an advanced teacher of God may precipitate a sudden shift into the real world.

The Course has over a 100 references to the word step and uses the analogy of the ladder to indicate gradual progress. To climb the ladder back home does require work, effort and time even though the final state will be one without effort where we will be guided what to say, where to go and what to do. There will be no one left to make decisions, no doer of actions and our life will be one of spontaneous activity guided by an internal wisdom. To help us awaken to that state we need to put our foot on the the first rungs of the ladder back home, remembering to smile gently each time we fall off.

-------------------------------------------------------

Peace of mind.

Forget not that the motivation for this course is the attainment and the keeping of the state of peace.
Given this state the mind is quiet, and the condition in which God is remembered is attained. A Course in Miracles T-24.Intro

To do nothing is to rest, and make a place within you where the activity of the body ceases to demand attention.
Into this place the Holy Spirit comes, and there abides.
T-18.VII.7:7

Happiness is living in the space between two thoughts. Into that space the Holy Spirit is invited and guides all activities. In that space "I need do nothing". The past and future no longer exist. Memories, knowledge - once thought essential to judge and evaluate each moment - are released to let this higher power take charge of your life. Decisions are gone to be replaced by certain knowing. The ego warns that all will be chaos without its help but instead, all is peace. We are told to resign as our own teacher as we have been badly taught (T-12.V.8). How humbling, and to the ego, how insulting. "Is not all my past experience of great value?," it cries. "No", replies the Holy Spirit, for every moment is fresh and requires a unique response and only the Holy Spirit knows which one. And this response will benefit all for He can only give to all. "But how can the future be safe!" cries the ego. "Future is your concept," replies Spirit. "There is no time, only the present moment, and I can tell you exactly what you need to do to give you peace and joy. But reliance on memory-based thought must cease before I am made welcome and this includes your so called 'good thought' as well as your attacking thoughts".

As students of A Course In Miracles should we be working for world peace? Is it selfish of us to only concern ourselves with inner peace? The Course tells us that this entire universe is but a projection of a thought of separation onto the screen of space-time.

The world was made as an attack on God. It symbolizes fear. And what is fear except love's absence? Thus the world was meant to be a place where God could enter not, and where His Son could be apart from Him. Here was perception born, for knowledge could not cause such insane thoughts. W-pII.3.2.

It is built into the very structure of this planet that discord and problems must exist here. The ego is a murderous thought system, kill or be killed, and so it must be mirrored here. Just to exist at all means we must kill something to eat - whether animal or vegetable. All ideas of achieving a utopia must therefore fail. If there is a world there must be an ego projecting it. When all separated beings finally decide to let the ego go (the Last Judgement) there will be peace, but there will not be a universe left to project. So our concern is not achieving peace in the world, not sending light to troubled areas, but learning to find inner peace through daily forgiveness. When the mind attains peace the memory of God will return and we will become a healing presence in the world. Some people will be drawn to our peace and they in turn will be encouraged by our example to choose forgiveness instead of attack. We will have no motive to change and influence others, for the mere presence of a teacher of God has the potential to heal others. By being at peace ourselves the greatest good can be accomplished.

The ego mind is constantly thinking, planning, scheming, defending and attacking. This is a very effective smokescreen for obliterating the thoughts of God. We cry out "Where is God?" whilst all the time making sure we do not leave Him a gap to enter. Can we give God a gap? Or do we believe God can't hit a moving target so let's live a life of constant thought and action and then we will be safe from Him.

I am willing to recognize that my thoughts do not mean anything, and to let them go. I choose to have them be replaced by what they were intended to replace. My thoughts are meaningless, but all creation lies in the thoughts I think with God.
W-p1.51.4:6

To find the peace of God we must reach the point when we see "The world I see holds nothing that I want". (Lesson 128) Whilst we still believe we know what's best for us we will continue to scheme and plan for the ultimate relationship, career, etc. Peace, and therefore the memory of God, will elude us whilst we pursue the idols of the world. A point must come when we willingly surrender to the fact that we don't know anything about how to be truly joyful and at last step aside and let the Holy Spirit lead the way.

Only be quiet. You will need no rule but this, to let your practicing today lift you above the thinking of the world, and free your vision from the body's eyes. Only be still and listen. W-p1.125.9

Non Dual Teachings
 
 
This part of the newsletter offers input from non-dual teachers. What is non-duality? The word Ōnon-dualÕ means not two. On the first page of the ACIM text there is two line summary of a Course in Miracles. It begins with the line ŅNothing real can be threatened
This refers to what God created Š eternal, formless, spirit. Eternal means never born and therefore cannot change or die. The Course uses the expression Ōthe ChristÕ to denote this. Behind all the seeming multiplicity of the universe there is actually only one essential reality. Just as all the images on the cinema screen seem different, the light that creates them is one.
 
There is nothing outside you. That is what you must ultimately learn, for it is the realization that the Kingdom of Heaven is restored to you. For God created only this, and He did not depart from it nor leave it separate from Himself. The Kingdom of Heaven is the dwelling place of the Son of God, who left not his Father and dwells not apart from Him. Heaven is not a place nor a condition. It is merely an awareness of perfect Oneness, and the knowledge that there is nothing else; nothing outside this Oneness, and nothing else within.
A Course in Miracles T-18.VI.1.
 
The second line of the summary states ÓNothing unreal exists.Ó This refers to everything that is born and therefore dies - the egoÕs world. Thus everything in the universe including ourselves is not real according to the Course. It is like a great dream. Only perfect oneness is real. 
 
There are two forms of non-duality Š pure and impure. In the impure form God is aware that the universe is a dream and experiences itself through it - God's Leela or play as they say in the East. In the pure form of non-duality God is unaware of the universe. The Course is an example of pure non-dual teachings. A metaphor for this is a cinema projector where the lamp in the projector represents God. When the ego's film of separation is run past the light it is projected onto the screen of time and space. The light of God makes this possible, but the lamp is unaware of what is on the screen and would continue to shine when the film is taken away. To continue with this metaphor the light extending from the lamp is who we are, the Christ. ( See chart http://acfip.org/lightbulb.html)
 
You dwell not here, but in eternity.
You travel but in dreams, while safe at home. 
T-13.VII.17:6-7.
 
You are at home in God, dreaming of exile but perfectly capable of awaking to reality. 
T-10.I.2:1.

Material from ETs
 
I introduce ET material from loving, wise and non-judgemental sources in most newsletters. I realise this is a controversial subject so I want to introduce below the science behind the possibility of other life forms in this universe, some of which are far in advance of us.
 
I recently learned that the US space agency NASA has been pointing an orbital telescope at one small part of our Milky Way galaxy and found about 3000 planets to date. This led to one of their department heads saying there must be more planets in the universe than stars. 
There are trillions of stars in the universe. A trillion is a thousand billion. A billion is a thousand million. A million days have not gone by since Jesus died. This is a very big number. 
There are also trillions of moons. Are they all empty of life and the only life is all crowded onto this one planet? A few hundred years ago we thought the Earth was at the centre of the universe and everything else revolved around us. If some of this ET life is just a few thousands years ahead of us technically, they would have learned how to travel beyond Einstein's light speed barrier and easily and quickly visit us here. 
I believe many of them have much to teach us especially as some have been through our current challenges a very long time ago.

SURRENDER

There is really nothing to say. Words are superfluous.
The only reason I use words is so you can detect the silence in the words.
Silence is truth. You cannot explain truth in words.
The words become meaningless, redundant.

The truth comes to you of its own free will
when you prepare yourself through deep surrender to your Self,
giving up all attachment, giving up your body, your mind,
and everything that's important to you, to the Self.
As long as you're holding on to anything, the Reality will evade you.
The Reality only comes when you give up yourself,
when you give up your ego,
when you give up your needs, your wants,
trying to make something happen, desires.
When you give up trying to become Self-realized.
When you just give up.

Then something wonderful happens.
You begin to expand.
Not your body, but the Consciousness which you are.
You become all pervading, Absolute Reality.
It happens by itself.

from Silence of the Heart
by
Robert Adams
 

 

OUR JOB IS BEINGNESS

What the world needs now is for us to become radiators of peace, joy and love - being not doing.
 

Your job as a Light worker is to hold the Light at all times and in all situations knowing that your consciousness imbued with Light is with you wherever you go. Some around you will feel this Light and be attracted while others may feel it and be repelled but this is not your concern. Everyone's journey is their own personal journey and it is never the responsibility of another to heal, change, fix, or save them unless they reach out. 

Never attempt to change the thinking of another for contrary to what many believe, this is not spiritual work but rather the expression of a belief in separation--that some people are not one with Source and need you to enlighten them. The person you attempt to enlighten may actually be very evolved and experiencing a chosen lifestyle/lesson/ experience. Honor the free will choices of all unless you are asked for guidance or information at which time you can lovingly tell them what you know or observe. 

Because you who resonate with these messages are spiritually awake and aware, your work at this point is simply to acknowledge the Divinity of every person and life form you see, interact with, read or think about.....
We are the Arcturian Group 10/17/21 through Marilyn Raffaele

You must align yourself with the vibration of love, and all will come to you. All will thrive Ń not only your body but also your relationships, your finances, your environment, and everything. And everything will come from you. 
from ŅJesus: My Autobiography.Ó Channelled by Tina Spalding
 

Your calmness will be noticed by those with eyes to see and ears to hear and some will seek to join you. By making no outer effort to save the world, you are in reality actually doing this very thing by BEing the Light − Reality.  Arcturian Group

Sit quietly, and hold compassion and love in your hearts. Seek to have peace within you. Intend for the universe to give everyone exactly what they need, and open yourselves up to receiving the high frequency energies that keep coming in so that you can be the conduits for that energy, and let go of this need to do something.

You have to live your lives, and you have to live your lives from wherever you are. And so, if you cannot open that healing center, that you want so much to open, tomorrow, then just ask yourself what you can do to help, and let that answer be enough. If you donÕt, you wonÕt find that peace within you, and if you donÕt find that peace within you, then youÕre putting out that vibration of being unsettled. And we can all agree that what you all want to see outside of you is a peaceful world, one where others let themselves off the hook and do the best that they can. So if you want that for everyone else, perhaps it is time to allow yourselves to have it as well.
How Much is Enough? - The 9D Arcturian Council, Channeled by Daniel Scranton.
 
Be the example of peace, so that your many brothers and sisters can see there is another way, and this other way is something to desire. 
~ Channeled message from The Master Jesus through Erin Michelle Galito.
 
It is time now for a profound shift in your consciousness to take place. What is that profound shift? That profound shift is one from doing, thinking, acting, moving things around to sitting, being, meditating, accepting, surrendering, loving.
We want you to try being quiet. We want you to try peace. We want you to just be knowing that it is in that frequency that we can communicate with you. 
There are many emissaries of light now active in this region of the solar system. And there are many frequencies that we can tune you into and that you can tune into. And we want you to surrender now on a profound level into those realms of non action and surrender.
The Guardians.  Channelled by Tina Spalding.
 
We suggest that youÕll work with your heart, open it, expand it, place an intention to feel joy, love, peace and happiness, do whatever makes you feel happy and joyous. You can laugh about being a secret agent of light, but this is exactly what you do, all of you in a way, you are agents of the light, and your basic function is to bring light to wherever you go, whatever you do to whomever you meet.
 This is how you help people; you don't need a mission that is predefined with to do lists and tasks list with an annual planning, just be the light that you are.  The Arcturians
 
 In The Way of the Heart, the most primary and fundamental perception that seems to fuel ordinary human consciousness has been finally transcended. The perception of a separate Ņmaker and doerÓ has been dissolved, and once again you will understand the depth and the profundity of the simple terms in this sentence:
   Of myself, I do nothing. But through me, the Father does all things.
To rest in such a perception means that you have come to realize that the self that you are is merely a conduit, through which mystery lives itself, through which Love pours forth.
From: The Way of the Heart through Jayem.

Forthcoming Workshops on A Course in Miracles - 2022 (Zoom) and 2022 (Bonn and Freiburg)

 
 
  1. Online Zoom workshops
2. Workshops held in Bonn and Freiburg
 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------- 


    1. Online Zoom workshops
Having a Quiet Mind and a Open Heart
A 3-part online workshop using Zoom
- in English with German translation
 
- You can enrol for all or some of the parts - 
 
By Michael Dawson
 
Zoom allows for questions, sharings, meeting in virtual rooms for pair exercises and sharings. 
 
Workshop description:
Let me not think that I can find the way to God, if I have hatred in my heart. Let me not try to hurt God's Son, and think that I can know his Father or my Self. 
A Course in Miracles Lesson 246
 
There is no path to truth, it must come to you. Truth can come to you only when your mind and heart are simple, clear, and there is love in your heart; not if your heart is filled with the things of the mind. 
J Krishnamurti
 
To let this memory of God and our spiritual reality return to our awareness we need to question everything we think is true, to realise we know nothing about how to awaken to peace and joy so that we may be guided, and learn to extend kindness and goodwill to others. Insight of the mind must be balanced with compassion of the heart.
 
This workshop will explore how we can awaken to peace and joy through the healing power of insight, a quiet mind, kindness, gentleness, awareness and forgiveness.

   1. Online-Zoom-Workshops
Einen ruhigen Geist und ein offenes Herz haben
Ein 3-teiliger Online-Workshop mit Zoom
- in Englisch mit deutscher †bersetzung
 
- Sie kšnnen sich fŸr alle oder einige der Teile anmelden - 
 
Von Michael Dawson
 
Zoom ermšglicht es, Fragen zu stellen, sich auszutauschen und sich in virtuellen RŠumen fŸr PaarŸbungen und Austausch zu treffen. 
Der Workshop ist auf 23 Teilnehmer begrenzt, so dass wir uns alle auf einem Computerbildschirm sehen kšnnen.
 
Beschreibung des Workshops:
Lass mich nicht denken, dass ich den Weg zu Gott finden kann, wenn ich Hass in meinem Herzen habe. Lasst mich nicht versuchen, Gottes Sohn zu verletzen, und denken, dass ich seinen Vater oder mein Selbst kennen kann. 
Ein Kurs in Wundern Lektion 246
 
Es gibt keinen Weg zur Wahrheit, sie muss zu dir kommen. Die Wahrheit kann nur zu dir kommen, wenn dein Verstand und dein Herz einfach und klar sind und Liebe in deinem Herzen ist; nicht wenn dein Herz mit den Dingen des Verstandes gefŸllt ist. 
J. Krishnamurti
 
Um diese Erinnerung an Gott und unsere spirituelle RealitŠt in unser Bewusstsein zurŸckkehren zu lassen, mŸssen wir alles in Frage stellen, was wir fŸr wahr halten, und erkennen, dass wir nichts darŸber wissen, wie wir zu Frieden und Freude erwachen kšnnen, damit wir uns leiten lassen und lernen, anderen gegenŸber Freundlichkeit und Wohlwollen zu zeigen. Die Einsicht des Verstandes muss durch das MitgefŸhl des Herzens ausgeglichen werden.
 
In diesem Workshop wird erforscht, wie wir durch die heilende Kraft der Einsicht, einen ruhigen Geist, Freundlichkeit, Sanftmut, Achtsamkeit und Vergebung zu Frieden und Freude erwachen kšnnen.

Dies zeigt Ihnen, dass alles in Ordnung ist. Am Tag des Treffens, wenn Sie frŸh ankommen, werden Sie in einen Warteraum gebracht, wo ich Sie sehen kann. Ich kann Sie dann in den Workshop lassen. Bitte schalten Sie Ihren Ton stumm (aus), wŠhlen Sie die Galerieansicht und schalten Sie Ihr Video ein.
 
Zoom - Computer, Smartphones und Tablets
Zoom ist eine kostenlose App fŸr Macs und PCs und funktioniert auch auf Tablets und Smartphones. Auf Tablets (z.B. iPad) kšnnen Sie nur 9 Teilnehmer gleichzeitig sehen, auf Smartphones nur 4. Sie mŸssen auf dem Smartphone-Bildschirm von rechts nach links wischen, um die nŠchste Gruppe von vier Teilnehmern zu sehen. Das beste Erlebnis erhalten Sie, wenn Sie einen Computer verwenden, auf dem Sie alle Workshop-Teilnehmer auf einem Bildschirm sehen.
 
Zoom - keine Smartphones
Es ist auch mšglich, von einem Nicht-Smartphone aus anzurufen, aber das Erlebnis ist dann nur auf den Ton beschrŠnkt. Sie kšnnen trotzdem am Hauptkonferenzraum und an den †bungen und dem Austausch im virtuellen Raum teilnehmen. Die Einwahlnummern werden von Zoom zur VerfŸgung gestellt und sind hier zu finden: https://us02web.zoom.us/u/kbSEOainPd. Sie kšnnen die Nummer vor dem Treffen ausprobieren und werden dann durch das Verfahren gefŸhrt. Es ist ein einfaches Verfahren.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTATIONS
 
About three times a week I send a short quotation from some spiritual teacher or poet to people who have requested some uplifting thoughts. I have included some below. If you wish I can add your name to the email list.
 
 
How long, O Son of God, will you maintain the game of sin? Shall we not put away these sharp-edged children's toys? How soon will you be ready to come home? Perhaps today? There is no sin. Creation is unchanged. Would you still hold return to Heaven back? How long, O holy Son of God, how long?
 
A Course in Miracles  Lesson 250
 
 
The true act of forgiveness requires you to see your own judgments as the crime, the one thing that keeps you from connecting with Source.
 
Making Love to God: The Path to Divine Sex
Tina Louise Spalding
 
Do understand that you are destined for enlightenment.
Co-operate with your destiny, don't go against it, don't thwart it.
Allow it to fulfil itself.
All you have to do is to give attention to the obstacles created by the foolish mind.
 
Nisargadatta Maharaj
I Am That
 
If you hate something and you focus all your energy on it, you will get more of it! 
So watch who you hate, how you hate, and when you hate, and make a different choice.
If you invest energetically in something, then you will get more of it. Have no doubt about it.
So know that the ripples of hatred and judgment that you send out will come back to you in the form of a magnified energy of that very same frequency, and that is something to contemplate, is it not?
 
You Can Free Yourself from the Karma of Chaos 
Channelled bTina Spalding
 
One is more likely to awaken through surrender than through seeking to waken. The effort to awaken is the effort of ego, whereas to surrender is to give up all efforts and to place oneself in the hands of a vast force that is more powerful than any realization of non duality.
When one finally gives up one's futile attempts to make reality conform to one's own wishes, and allows it to unfold on its own terms, all the energy that was tied up in foolish attempts to manipulate the universe is freed up.
