Thanks for asking the issues that come to your mind, even when they appear "somewhat peculiar" to you. In Enlightenment all perceived suffering has faded, for what but wrong-mindedness seemed to create the misperception named pain.
Pain was the dream that Christ could keep a Warm Creator's Mind. "If suffering is true there's no God. If Lord is actual there's number pain."(W-190.3) The latter does work because God doesn't have opposite. Enlightenment entails no pain or displeasure about ANYTHING, for Enlightenment is Genuine, Regular Pleasure, Peace, Freedom, acim
and Joy. Being Continuous, Enlightenment knows maybe not of change. The illusion of vulnerability and varying feelings went as well. There's number vanity to drop "back into." Spirit Abides in mild Love. All suffering is over Now and nothing remains but an advantage of Stillness.
The Holy Spirit is the reminder that Life is Eternal. The Present Time could be the gate way to Eternity. The entire world of pictures was a full world of illusion. Photographs are therefore neutral to the Sacred Spirit. They certainly were "neutralized" the quick they appeared to arise.
What does this mean with regards to your second question? You can't kill what's never existed, and in the Holy Spirit's Perception of forgiveness damage is impossible. Figures were never born and never die because the entire world of photos may be the past. It's impossible to get origins and endings in a script that is already prepared and around long ago. There's number living in images. This is the indicating of "Hold no graven photos prior to the Lord Thy God." All photographs were designed to hidden the Reality from awareness, and they could only be forgiven as one illusion. If illusions could be divided up into living and lifeless, normal and inorganic, animate and inanimate Enlightenment could be impossible. For what is Enlightenment but Pure Oneness, much beyond the likelihood of department of any sort? The split brain was the illusion. Find not to challenge the split mind to types and call some types alive and some forms dead. Lord understands maybe not form. The split brain seemed to be the "killer" dream, yet the Sacred Soul reminds the resting brain that what's full and specific cannot BE split. In Heaven Mind is One Heart, and also regarding this earth forgiveness shows this Oneness. The forgiven earth identifies the unity of the relieved brain and sees that there's nothing "outside" of the single mind which dreams softly a pleased, delicate dream. The target of ACIM is always to dream gently of a sinless world. This goal is a lot more than probable, it's certain!
In terms of my seeming diet, "consume what's served" could be the Advice I was given from the Holy Soul many years ago. Join along with your brother and let number notion come between the Enjoy you share. That Guidance hasn't changed. "Dinner" is always a foundation for sharing the Delight of the Living Moment. What the entire world calls "breathing" and "eating" and "drinking" and "sleeping" are really yet in the Enlightened State. The Recovered Perspective considers the sameness of all things since they all share the same Function: forgiveness. That Perception isn't "particular," for in good belief nothing is personal. God is no respecter of persons. I literally can't "take" an animal's "life" since Living is Nature and can only be prolonged or Given as God Gives. "Take" does not have any indicating in my own brain and since animals have not "lived" it's impossible that they could "die." The opinion expressed in the thought "individually take an animal's life" has many main assumptions which are false. In right-mindedness it is apparent that some ideas are heightened because they are provided out or shared, and "taking" a "life" or some thing does not have any meaning. All that I give is directed at mySelf, and in giving there is number loss, no sacrifice, and nothing is ever taken away from wholeness and unity. The teacher of Lord does not need whatever cannot be provided away. Such could be the Delight of miracles! The idea seeds seem to be flung every-where, however there's never a glance back once again to see where in fact the seeds land. The vegetables are never for an "different," and since offering and getting are exactly the same the mind gets the gifts it gives. This is really the party you seek for underneath the ego's questions.
The only question that need be asked is really a question that is certainly not absurd at all: Am I ready to learn that God's May and My Own will be the Same? God's May for Me is for Perfect Happiness. And what but that Will is the May of Christ? Joyfully, nothing can transform Timeless Love. Thank You Lord!
