IV. Healing as the Recognition of Truth, P 2
2 The Holy Spirit must work through you to teach you He is in you. This is an intermediary step toward the knowledge that you are in God because you are part of Him. The miracles the Holy Spirit inspires can have no order of difficulty, because every part of creation is of one order. This is God’s Will and yours. The laws of God establish this, and the Holy Spirit reminds you of it. When you heal, you are remembering the laws of God and forgetting the laws of the ego. I said before that forgetting is merely a way of remembering better. It is therefore not the opposite of remembering when it is properly perceived. Perceived improperly, it induces a perception of conflict with something else, as all incorrect perception does. Properly perceived, it can be used as a way out of conflict, as all proper perception can.
I remember when I joined a Unity church I was told that God is in me. This was a new concept for me but I embraced it. Later when I began to study A Course in Miracles I decided that really, I must be in God. I felt that was true but couldn’t fully wrap my mind around it. That was because I still saw myself as a body and separate and as if all things are separate.
Slowly as I allowed my mind to be healed more and more, I realized there is no separation. Separation is just an illusion, a magic trick. Very realistic, but still just a trick. Then I could accept more completely that I am in God, as is all living things. I have no problem with this idea now. The shift that is occurring for me now is that the idea is moving from the head to the heart. It is becoming something more than a concept.
Just as I had to ease into the concept, I have had to ease into the actuality of it. The way this is done for me is that I experience God moving through me. I ask for clarity and it comes through me. I ask for words to explain this clarity and they are given to me. I ask for the perfect way to help someone and the help comes through me. This is an intermediary step toward the knowledge that I am in God because I am part of Him.
As I feel that I am part of God, I naturally let go of the idea that there is an order of difficulty in miracles. I forget the rules of the world which dictate that everything is ordered by size and position, by difficulty and ease. That law used to be so self evident to me, and now it is an artifact, a relic of a belief left behind through no effort on my part, just as a natural progression as I open more and more to the truth.
In the world, forgetting is the opposite of remembering. But the Holy Spirit uses it differently. I must set aside what I now believe so I can make room for the truth. I forget the laws of the world so that I can fully remember the laws of God.
