What is Enlightenment?
Thanks for asking the questions that come to your mind, even though they seem "fairly peculiar" to you. In Enlightenment all observed suffering has faded, for what but wrong-mindedness seemed to produce the misperception named pain.
Pain was the impression that Christ can keep a Supportive Creator's Mind. "If pain is actual there's no God. If Lord is true there's no pain."(W-190.3) The latter is true since God doesn't have opposite. Enlightenment entails no pain or displeasure about ANYTHING, a course in miracles
for Enlightenment is Pure, Constant Pleasure, Peace, Freedom, and Joy. Being Continuous, Enlightenment knows perhaps not of change. The impression of susceptibility and fluctuating emotions went as well. There's no vanity to drop "straight back into." Heart Abides in soft Love. All suffering is over Today and nothing stays but a benefit of Stillness.
The Holy Nature could be the memory that Living is Eternal. The Provide Moment is the gate way to Eternity. The world of photos was a world of illusion. Images are therefore basic to the Sacred Spirit. They certainly were "neutralized" the instant they appeared to arise.
What does this suggest in terms of your next problem? You can't eliminate what's never lived, and in the Sacred Spirit's Perception of forgiveness damage is impossible. Bodies were never born and never die since the world of images could be the past. It is impossible to get origins and endings in a script that is currently prepared and over long ago. There is number life in images. This is actually the indicating of "Hold number graven images before the Master Thy God." All photographs were made to obscure the Truth from attention, and they could only be forgiven as you illusion. If illusions could be split up in to residing and useless, natural and inorganic, animate and inanimate Enlightenment could be impossible. For what's Enlightenment but Real Oneness, much beyond the chance of division of any sort? The split brain was the illusion. Seek never to challenge the split brain to types and contact some forms living and some forms dead. Lord understands perhaps not form. The separate brain was the "killer" impression, yet the Holy Soul tells the sleeping mind that what's full and good can never BE split. In Paradise Mind is One Spirit, and actually pertaining to that earth forgiveness shows this Oneness. The understood earth recognizes the unity of the healed mind and considers that there is nothing "outside" of this simple mind which desires gently a happy, delicate dream. The goal of ACIM would be to desire lightly of a sinless world. That goal is more than possible, it is expected!
In terms of my appearing diet, "eat what is served" could be the Advice I was presented with from the Sacred Soul a long time ago. Join along with your brother and let no principle come involving the Enjoy you share. That Guidance hasn't changed. "Dinner" is obviously a background for sharing the Joy of the Residing Moment. What the world calls "breathing" and "eating" and "drinking" and "sleeping" are very the same in the Enlightened State. The Healed Perception considers the sameness of everything because each of them reveal exactly the same Purpose: forgiveness. That Perception is not "particular," for in specific understanding nothing is personal. Lord isn't any respecter of persons. I practically can not "take" an animal's "life" since Living is Spirit and can only just be lengthy or Given as Lord Gives. "Take" does not have any meaning in my mind and since creatures have not "lived" it is impossible that they could "die." The opinion indicated in the thought "individually take an animal's life" has many main assumptions that are false. In right-mindedness it is clear that some ideas are increased as they are provided out or discussed, and "taking" a "life" or some thing doesn't have meaning. All that I give is given to mySelf, and in providing there's number reduction, no compromise, and nothing is actually recinded from wholeness and unity. The instructor of God does not want whatever can't be provided away. Such may be the Delight of miracles! Thinking seeds appear to be flung every-where, yet there's never a good glance back to see where in fact the seeds land. The vegetables are never for an "different," and since providing and obtaining are the exact same your head receives the gifts it gives. That is really the food you seek for underneath the ego's questions.
The only real question that require be requested is a issue that's certainly not foolish at all: Am I prepared to know that God's Can and My Own will be the Same? God's Can for Me is for Great Happiness. And what but this Will could be the Will of Christ? Happily, nothing can alter Endless Love. Thank You God!
