1. Individual healing sessions via Zoom

I have been giving healing sessions for over 30 years, and have now decided to offer healing sessions via Zoom. 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 Zoom 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, “all minds are joined”, so perhaps I should not be surprised. Time and space are ego illusions, not Spirit’s.

Investigating the self Michael Dawson

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God
intro,Text - A Course in Miracles


A Course in Miracles  asks us to challenge our conventional wisdom about who we think we are and what the world really is. Until we do this we are walking around asleep and suffering will be our constant companion. The above quote states that, "Nothing unreal exists", which means if something is not eternal (i.e. never born) its nature is that of a dream. In the Workbook Jesus states, "There is no world. This is the central thought the course attempts to teach." W-p1.132.6:2-3 
If it is the 'central thought', then we need to pay close attention to it.

So what does exist? A man walking at dusk mistakes a coiled rope for a poisonous snake and is terrified. He sees what appears to be a real problem that needs an urgent solution and he will not hear otherwise. It might take considerable persuasion from someone who knows the truth that there is nothing to fear in this situation. The 'snake' is a projection of the man's mind and has no inherent existence. Some Buddhist schools would say it is empty and "does not exist from its own side", and that everything we perceive or think is likewise empty or void, without any inherent reality or existence.

I believe the Course agrees with this, referring to the ego as a dream that will disappear back into nothingness when we so choose just as darkness vanishes (not hides) when the light appears. Whilst we identify with the ego we make it real and therefore we insist we exist as an individual. To maintain the illusion of individuality we need to defend against the truth by concentrating on the unreal - a world empty of any inherent existence.

So who am I? This trunk with four limbs and a head? Do I feel diminished if I trim my nails and have a hair cut? Or lose a limb? No - the 'I' thought remains. What of our thoughts and the emotions they generate? We can watch them come and go, we can stand back and observe them or their absence so we can't be them. Are we a collection of our body parts, thoughts and emotions? Again no, for if we can't be found in the parts we cannot exist in the collection. 

The thoughts of which I am aware do not mean anything because I am trying to think without God. What I call "my" thoughts are not my real thoughts. My real thoughts are the thoughts I think with God. I am not aware of them because I have made my thoughts to take their place. Lesson 51

The concept of an individual self is made up by the mind - it is just another thought taken as important. Our body, mind and feelings are just like the coiled rope and have no inherent existence. We have simply given a meaning to them or labelled them as 'me'. The early Workbook lessons emphasise this point. Lesson 1 states: "Nothing in this room means anything". In the review of Lesson 1 (see Lesson 51) it says, "The reason this is so is that I see nothing, and nothing has no meaning. It is necessary that I recognise this, that I may learn to see". In Lesson 7 Jesus uses the example of a cup saying, "What do you know about this cup except what you learned in the past? You would have no idea what this cup is, except for your past learning. Do you, then, really see it? Look about you. This is equally true of whatever you look at." This is another way of saying we label everything we perceive and give it meaning it does not possess of and in itself.

What God did not create does not exist. And everything that does exist exists as He created it. The world you see has nothing to do with reality. It is of your own making, and it does not exist. Lesson 14 

When the first letter of the alphabet was written on the board, in our first reading class as children, we did not see an 'A'. Perhaps we saw a tent or a mountain. We had to be taught to label it an 'A' and that is how we now see it. But it is not an 'A' in and of it itself but a series of strokes. Even the word 'stroke' is a label. 

Imagine for a moment that through self-forgiveness we let go of our personal identity as a man, woman, parent, child, worker, etc. Who is left to want gain, praise and a good reputation? Who is left who wants to avoid loss, blame and a bad reputation? Then we will know the peace of God and finally remember who we are - not an individual but Christ - the one eternal, formless spirit that God created in His Mind.

Collapsing time

Such is each life; a seeming interval from birth to death and on to life again, a repetition of an instant gone by long ago that cannot be relived. And all of time is but the mad belief that what is over is still here and now. T-26.V.13:2-4 

To achieve the goal of the Course we need to practise forgiveness. To understand the Course we need a knowledge of its metaphysics which includes time. Forgiveness collapses time, speeding the moment of spiritual awakening when we finally accept the Atonement - the awakening from the illusion of time and space.

Jesus states we need new ideas about time but also says how difficult it is for us to understand these ideas. Linear time is what we take as the truth, whilst Jesus tells us that time is holographic - everything is happening in one moment. However, we can at least understand time's purpose and allow our deeply rooted ideas of time and space to be shaken a little. As we proceed along the Course's path of awakening we will encounter experiences that will seem shocking and fear-provoking to our egos. It will be helpful therefore to meet these times with some foreknowledge so that awe and not fear is experienced. (T-1.VII.5). 

The ego uses time to preserve itself. It tells us that in the past we decided to separate from God and achieved this. To save us from the resulting overwhelming guilt it advised us to deny this ever happened. This imagined sin in the past is experienced in the present as guilt leading to a fear of punishment in the future. All our fear stems from this unconscious guilt from a separation that never really happened. 

In contrast the Holy Spirit reminds us that the "tiny mad idea" (see below) of separation was undone by the Holy Spirit the moment it was thought.

God gave His Teacher to replace the one you made, not to conflict with it. And what He would replace has been replaced. Time lasted but an instant in your mind, with no effect upon eternity. And so is all time past, and everything exactly as it was before the way to nothingness was made. The tiny tick of time in which the first mistake was made, and all of them within that one mistake, held also the Correction for that one, and all of them that came within the first. And in that tiny instant time was gone, for that was all it ever was. What God gave answer to is answered and is gone. T-26.V.3:1-7

In that "tiny tick of time" the whole universe was born, evolved and died along with all the thoughts we experienced. 

"All thinking produces form at some level." (T-2.VI.9:14), and so all these thoughts manifested in time and space. This is somewhat similar to parallel universes hypothesised by some quantum physicists - that all possible results of an experiment exist and the participating scientist chooses one of them to manifest. Although everything was corrected in that 'original instant' we have chosen not to accept the Holy Spirit's correction and perversely continue as if we are still special individuals separated in space and linear time. 

The world of time is the world of illusion. What happened long ago seems to be happening now. Choices made long since appear to be open; yet to be made. What has been learned and understood and long ago passed by is looked upon as a new thought, a fresh idea, a different approach. Because your will is free you can accept what has already happened at any time you choose, and only then will you realize that it was always there. For we but see the journey from the point at which it ended, looking back on it, imagining we make it once again; reviewing mentally what has gone by. TM-2.3:1-5 

To help make this a bit clearer I will use a couple of analogies. There are currently available fiction novels which give the reader a choice of which plot to develop. At the end of each chapter you choose from a choice of plots; for example, if the hero gets married or decides to say single. You are then directed to the appropriate page and the story continues based on your previous choice of plot. A multiple, but not infinite, story line. In that original instant of seeming separation we also had an enormous, but not infinite, number of stories which we now reviewing in our time and space theatre.

Dr Kenneth Wapnick, in his excellent book, A Vast illusion - time according to a Course in Miracles, uses the analogy of the VCR. The sleeping son of God or decision-maker is sitting there watching video tapes of what occurred in that "tiny tick of time". He has a choice between two huge and equal piles of video tapes - the ego tapes and tapes of their correction by the Holy Spirit. One of the correction tapes is entitled 'Atonement' in which the sleeping son of God finally wakes up and joyfully realises he never left his Father's home and that time and space are illusions. At this point he stops the pointless practice of viewing videotapes of what has already occurred. 

It is important to realise that the way of awakening, like everything else, has already happened and can't be changed.

The time is set already. It appears to be quite arbitrary. Yet there is no step along the road that anyone takes but by chance. It has already been taken by him, although he has not yet embarked on it. W-pI.158.3:1-4 

But when we decide to view that tape is not. 

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. T-in.1-5 

As the course emphasizes, you are not free to choose the curriculum, or even the form in which you will learn it. You are free, however, to decide when you want to learn it. And as you accept it, it is already learned. M-2.3 : 6-7 

That is the purpose of the spiritual path - to speed the time of awakening. As Jesus states a few times in the workbook, we could save thousands of years (many reviews of ego tapes) if we did a particular lesson correctly. Thus time can be collapsed through forgiveness. As an example, your partner may suddenly die and leave you heartbroken. In that original instant you may have had two thoughts - to turn to drugs to alleviate the pain or dedicate your life to finding a peace that no death can take away - the choice of two videos to review. If you turn to the Holy Spirit for guidance He will urge you to review the latter and so save time. 

Due to our fixation with linear time it is hard for us to realise the all our problems are solvable instantly. The correction video has always existed and we need not delay in reviewing it. 

I seem to have problems only because I am misusing time. I believe that the problem comes first, and time must elapse before it can be worked out. I do not see the problem and the answer as simultaneous in their occurrence. That is because I do not yet realise that God has placed the answer together with the problem, so that they cannot be separated by time. The Holy Spirit will teach me this, if I will let Him. And I will understand it is impossible that I could have a problem which has not been solved already. W-pI.90.3.

This also relates to the teachings in the text about the Laws of Chaos were it states there is no hierarchy of illusions, no order of difficulty in miracles. Any problem, irrespective of its seeming magnitude, has already been corrected and is simply waiting acceptance. Our job is to turn to the Holy Spirit and ask His advice on what video to review thus speeding the time to when we review the Atonement video.

To you who still believe you live in time and know not it is gone, the Holy Spirit still guides you through the infinitely small and senseless maze you still perceive in time, though it has long since gone. You think you live in what is past. Each thing you look upon you saw but for an instant, long ago, before its unreality gave way to truth. Not one illusion still remains unanswered in your mind. Uncertainty was brought to certainty so long ago that it is hard indeed to hold it to your heart, as if it were before you still. T-26.V.4

Non Dual Teachings


This part of the newsletter offers input from non-dual teachers. What is non-duality? The word ‘non-dual’ 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 “Nothing real can be threatened.”
This refers to what God created – eternal, formless, spirit. Eternal means never born and therefore cannot change or die. The Course uses the expression ‘the Christ’ 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 ”Nothing unreal exists.” This refers to everything that is born and therefore dies - the ego’s 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 – 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.

Our part in achieving world peace - Christina von Dreien GmbH


<PastedGraphic-4.png>

The situation in the world is a large-scale mirror for the whole of humanity. There are many wars going on, even if not all of them are fought with missiles and tanks.

 

If we see war in the world, this means that there is something in the consciousness of humanity that allows such a thing to come about in the first place.

 

If humanity had collective inner peace, it would not be possible for such things to come about. But humanity does not yet have this inner peace.

 

Each one of us is a part of humanity. If we want collective peace, we need to start with ourselves. We can ask ourselves:

-Where am I not at peace with myself and my life?
-Where do I not yet forgive myself or others?
-Where am I not yet at peace with my past?

Only we ourselves can decide that we want to find our inner peace. No one else can do that for us.

 

It is our responsibility to decide for ourselves what we really want. In our personal lives and in the world. It is important for us to always remember that peace is what we want. To remember that we want more love, compassion and understanding for all living beings here on the Earth.

 

If we want war on the Earth to end, we must end the war within ourselves. Only when we as human beings find inner peace will it be at all possible at some point for there to be lasting peace on the Earth. We can't force others to change. But we can change ourselves.

 

And move towards a more peaceful existence.

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.

Our mission in these times - wisdom from the Arcturians

We know that you know that inner peace is a challenge. Unconditional peace that does not require anyone or anything to change is a tall order. It is something that the spiritual master hopes to attain in a lifetime. We want you all to know that this is your mission at this time. Your mission is to be peace, to exude peace, to hold peace in your hearts, in order to be of service to the entire collective, to yourselves, and to those who are experiencing a lack of peace right now. You can be the examples and hold the vibration, and you can send that peace out to everyone and to every place that needs it right now.

You can also look within yourselves for where you have inner conflict, and you can seek to resolve that inner conflict by simply letting go of the fight. Let go of the struggle, and become one unified whole that is un-fragmented, that is ready to recognize yourself as a being of pure love and light, as all that is.

Your Mission at this Time įThe 9D Arcturian Council, Channeled by Daniel Scranton - 21/5/22

My recent 2 hour workshop “Being not Doing” is on this theme;

It's alright to make mistakes - wisdom from the Arcturians

<PastedGraphic-5.png>

We are very understanding when we witness one or more of you going off the rails a bit, having a moment where you lash out or take an action that you will later regret. First of all, you are living on a world and in a dimension that make it challenging for you to even exist in physical form. And on top of that, the most important things that you could do to make all of that easier on yourselves are discouraged by most adults when you are growing up. You are told to toughen up. You are told to be quiet. You are told not to follow your instinct, your feeling, or your intuition, and instead to do what you are told.....

It is all right when you decide that you need to turn to an addiction just to feel normal. It is all right when you find yourselves in such dire straits that you need to move back in with your parents. It is all right to have had relationships that didn’t work out or marriages that ended in divorce. Humanity is not getting further along in the evolution of its consciousness by judging yourselves and others harshly. When you experience yourself looking at another human being and saying to yourself that they should be different, they should be better, they should no longer believe what they are believing, you are essentially saying that about yourself....

Trust us when we tell you that you will have your opportunities to be of even greater service to humanity. But right now, we would like to see more of you looking to just be happy. We would like to see more of you giving credit to yourselves for continuing to exist there on that challenging in that challenging dimension. And so, we will continue to praise you, to celebrate you, and to shine our unconditional love upon you.

Relationships - Our Path Home.
- finding peace and growth in the mirror of relationships 
A Course in Miracles Zoom workshop
In English with German translation

You can enrol for all or some of the 3 parts
Zoom allows for questions, sharings, 
meeting in virtual rooms for pair exercises and sharings.

By Michael Dawson

"When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter.
As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. 
As you think of him you will think of yourself. 
Never forget this, for in him  you will find yourself or lose yourself." 
from A Course in Miracles T-8.III.4.

Our relationships can become our daily classroom of forgiveness. "Relationships" does not just refer to our partners but everyone we meet. How we react to our family, colleagues, strangers, animals, people in the media mirrors what is contained in our minds. Daily we walk around in a hall of mirrors and when we lose our peace we are being shown something unhealed, unforgiven in our minds. 

The Course seeks to take our difficult relationships and change their direction towards the goal of holy relationships in which we practice honesty and forgiveness.

As we learn to look at ourselves and others without judgement (forgiveness) we gradually remove the obstacles to the love and peace within us. Judgement is gradually replaced by compassion, and instead of separation, true acceptance, friendship and genuine intimacy become possible.

The workshop will contain exercises to help understand and heal painful dynamics found in ego-based relationships, allowing our natural state of peace and joy to be uncovered. 

(No previous knowledge of the book A Course in Miracles is required.)

Beziehungen - Unser Weg nach Hause. 

- Frieden finden und Wachstum erleben im Spiegel von Beziehungen - Ein Seminar basierend auf „Ein Kurs in Wundern“ 

"Wenn du jemandem begegnest, so erinnere dich daran, dass es eine heilige Begegnung ist.
Wie du ihn siehst, wirst du dich selber sehen. Wie du ihn behandelst, wirst du dich selbst behandeln. Wie du über ihn denkst, wirst du über dich selbst denken. Vergiss dies nie, denn in ihm wirst du dich selbst finden oder verlieren."
Ein Kurs in Wundern T-8.III.4. 

Unsere Beziehungen können zu unserem täglichen Klassenzimmer der Vergebung werden. "Beziehungen" bezieht sich nicht nur auf unsere Partner, sondern auf jeden, dem wir begegnen. Wie wir auf unsere Familie, Kollegen, Fremde, Tiere, Menschen in den Medien reagieren, spiegelt das wider, was in unserem Verstand enthalten ist. Täglich laufen wir in einem Spiegelkabinett herum, und wenn wir unseren Frieden verlieren, wird uns etwas gezeigt, das in unserem Geist noch nicht geheilt, noch nicht vergeben ist. 

Der Kurs zielt darauf ab, unsere schwierigen Beziehungen in eine Richtung zu lenken, die zu heiligen Beziehungen führt, in denen wir Ehrlichkeit und Vergebung praktizieren. 

Wenn wir lernen, uns selbst und andere ohne Verurteilung (Vergebung) zu betrachten, beseitigen wir allmählich die Hindernisse, die der Liebe und dem Frieden in uns im Wege stehen. An die Stelle des Urteils tritt allmählich Mitgefühl, und anstelle von Trennung werden wahre Akzeptanz, Freundschaft und echte Intimität möglich. 

Der Workshop enthält Übungen, die helfen, schmerzhafte Dynamiken in Ego-Beziehungen zu verstehen und zu heilen, so dass unser natürlicher Zustand von Frieden und Freude sichtbar werden kann.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTATIONS

About three times a week I send a 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. Email me at:  mdawson@acfip.org


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.
