What is Enlightenment?
Thanks for wondering the questions which come to your brain, even though they seem "rather peculiar" to you. In Enlightenment all observed suffering has vanished, for what but wrong-mindedness appeared to make the misperception called pain.
Suffering was the impression that Christ can keep a Caring Creator's Mind. "If pain is actual there's no God. If God is true there's number pain."(W-190.3) The latter holds true because God does not have any opposite. Enlightenment entails number suffering or acim
displeasure about ANYTHING, for Enlightenment is Pure, Regular Happiness, Peace, Freedom, and Joy. Being Continuous, Enlightenment knows perhaps not of change. The illusion of vulnerability and fluctuating thoughts moved as well. There's no confidence to fall "right back into." Nature Abides in delicate Love. All suffering is finished Now and nothing stays but a benefit of Stillness.
The Holy Spirit is the memory that Life is Eternal. The Present Time is the gate way to Eternity. The world of images was a world of illusion. Pictures are thus neutral to the Holy Spirit. They were "neutralized" the quick they seemed to arise.
What does this mean in terms of your second question? You cannot kill what has never existed, and in the Holy Spirit's Perception of forgiveness hurt is impossible. Figures were never born and never die because the world of pictures is the past. It's impossible to get beginnings and endings in a script that is already published and over long ago. There is no life in images. This is actually the indicating of "Hold no graven photographs prior to the Master Thy God." All photographs were designed to hidden the Truth from attention, and they can only be forgiven together illusion. If illusions might be divided up in to residing and dead, natural and inorganic, animate and inanimate Enlightenment could be impossible. For what is Enlightenment but Genuine Oneness, much beyond the possibility of section of all kinds? The split mind was the illusion. Find not to project the separate brain to forms and call some types living and some types dead. Lord knows maybe not form. The split mind was the "killer" dream, the Sacred Soul tells the asleep mind that what is full and specific cannot BE split. In Heaven Mind is One Heart, and also pertaining to that earth forgiveness reflects that Oneness. The forgiven earth understands the unity of the relieved brain and sees that there is nothing "outside" of the single brain which desires softly a happy, light dream. The goal of ACIM is to desire lightly of a sinless world. This goal is a lot more than probable, it is certain!
For my appearing diet, "eat what's served" is the Guidance I was given from the Holy Soul several years ago. Join with your brother and allow no principle come involving the Enjoy you share. This Advice hasn't changed. "Dinner" is definitely a history for sharing the Pleasure of the Residing Moment. What the entire world calls "breathing" and "eating" and "drinking" and "sleeping" are actually all the same in the Enlightened State. The Healed Perspective considers the sameness of things because each of them share exactly the same Purpose: forgiveness. This Perception isn't "personal," for in specific understanding nothing is personal. God is not any respecter of persons. I actually can't "take" an animal's "life" because Living is Soul and can just only be extensive or Given as Lord Gives. "Take" doesn't have meaning in my mind and since creatures have never "lived" it's impossible that they might "die." The opinion indicated in the idea "individually get an animal's life" has several main assumptions which can be false. In right-mindedness it's obvious that a few ideas are increased as they are provided away or provided, and "taking" a "life" or anything more does not have any meaning. All that I give is directed at mySelf, and in giving there is no loss, no lose, and nothing is ever taken away from wholeness and unity. The instructor of Lord does not need something that can not be given away. Such may be the Delight of miracles! The idea vegetables be seemingly flung everywhere, yet there's never a glance back again to see where in fact the seeds land. The vegetables are never for an "other," and because giving and obtaining are exactly the same the mind receives the gifts it gives. This is truly the food you seek for beneath the ego's questions.
The only real problem that want be asked is a question that's not necessarily ridiculous at all: Am I ready to know that God's Can and My Possess would be the Same? God's Will for Me is for Perfect Happiness. And what but this Will may be the May of Christ? Fortunately, nothing can transform Timeless Love. Thank You Lord!
