Social media marketing is like anything in this world, i.e., projected thoughts with all the content of the ego wrong mind. Online attacks locally for any Course in Miracles (ACIM) are through the many comments, quotes and also other postings wherein we answer our interpretation which becomes the justification for the response (T-12.I.1) or our cause of posting, etc. All students have a basic confusion between form and content along with just what it methods to join how about we not sugar coat it: Social networking is forms (projected content in the ego wrong mind) from joining with the wrong mind. Therefore, through the outset it is just a series of attacks until we forgive and initiate identifying (joining) with the proper mind.
Even during this course, many of us sit around online with a few type of an electronic device mindlessly doing our ego thing. Okay, some might be standing, leaning or lounging:
Sitting around and speaking about this course is not the same task as doing the difficult work of checking text and putting the principles into practice to discover what are the Course means (Kenneth Wapnick, Rules for Decision).
Inside the same Rules, Wapnick also says, “What increases the ego its power is your having merged with it, your identification by it.” Forms are projected like a defense from the opposite and they are only with the ego wrong mind thereby they don’t matter.
Since social media is focused on forms that happen to be fragmented projections with the ego, were then perceiving the Sonship as fragmented that makes the mistake real. Specialness is valued as a possible idol placed ahead of the Love of God and the ones perceived differences take care of the separation inside the mind. Absolutely any fragmented attribute we judge in another online (or anywhere) should be seen in all of the Sonship since we’re really One in reality. That’s the reason attack isn’t discrete and has to be relinquished (T-7.VI.1).
Discrete means, “Individually separate and distinct.” All attack of any type is the same and is designed to divide the whole lot with the Sonship as it attacks (fragments) the Sonship via differences rather than sameness. Hence, we are able to discover why Wapnick would state that it is silly to utilize the Course as being a weapon when it’s clearly a training course situated in unity.
Finally, let’s add two other word symbol definitions since these are used during the entire Course:
Demonstrate: Clearly show the existence or truth of something by offering proof or evidence.
Reminder: Something which causes a person to remember something.
Within the Course, “To teach would be to demonstrate (M-in.2) and we are always teaching, or demonstrating the ego or God every moment, i.e., the content mind in which we have decided to join or identify. For contrast, the content from the ego is many projected and various forms; and also the content in the right thoughts are unity, sameness, i.e., Love (no projections). There isn’t any exceptions. It’s one or other.
Our brothers are a part of us. They are the ones who teach us who were for your learning is a result of what we should have taught them (T-9.VI.3) – the ego or God – always. Since the dreamer in the dream (T-27.VII.), our dream figures (those online with us and our brothers) are performing that which you are dreaming they are doing based on what we’ve taught (demonstrated). Therefore, they are innocent as it is our dream. We taught separation or possibly a murderous attack thought against God and so we all demonstrate said attack in several fragmented forms. Yet as we forgive ourselves for we now have taught (chosen) as opposed to attacking, look for who we are through our brothers who’re exactly the same.
When we’re posting quotes, comments or use Course language “at” another we have been really attacking (unloving reminders). If we consider how “at” feels we know we feel in separation and differences. The commands or demands from the ego have to be answered “at” a separated fragment (brother) and then we still demonstrate our original attack thought and repress our guilt. Course students then go and acquire online with one of these many ideas of specialness as well as their unloving reminders which fragments your brain and maintains the separation (the other of unity) which is problem.
From your social media platform to non-public pages, online friends and groups, forms will be the concentrate on social media marketing. Forms don’t matter. Whenever we say they do, we will automatically demonstrate the ego and become unloving and unkind, i.e., we harm others.
Surely periodically a reminder might be loving and helpful, but frequently it’s not at all. Again, you should always use being normal as being a criterion. Normal people the existence of somebody that is sick (and then any mind that believes it’s separate is sick), especially a friend or member of the family, are kind. You don’t have to become spiritual giant or understand stand the main difference between non-duality and duality to understand that when someone is sick along with pain, kindness ought to be agreed to see your face. When i have already been stressing, once you don’t have a look at fear or guilt, they will be pushed down with your unconscious, and merely as automatically will be project out – always. Inevitably, then you certainly turn out judging and attacking others (Kenneth Wapnick, The Healing Strength of Kindness: Vol. 1, Kindle location 149, underline and parenthesis addition mine).
I wouldn’t have believed them even existed within the so-called Training in Miracles community. Having been initiated into this community, I quickly begun to consider it a family that necessary to practice abdominal muscles Course it claimed to believe in (Gary Renard, Your Immortal Reality, Kindle Location 466).
To convey this differently, social media marketing belongs to the dream about devastation, a murderous thought against God. It’s the seeking without (in forms) to prevent looking within which is very heart of social media:
Looking implies you are not whole within and fear to look upon your devastation, but choose to seek outside yourself for which you’re (T-29.VII.4). What if you looked within and saw no sin? This “fearful” question is one the ego never asks (T-23.IV.3).
A loving reminder has not even attempt to use forms because it is exemplary kindness of mind which vision is of sameness and unity – One. If there is nothing different, there is nothing to address for just one is at home with God during this world and sees only Christ in brothers. You are likely to demonstrate something quite unique:
(2:1) To them [those who are sick] God’s teachers come, to represent another option that they can had forgotten. Your only function is to be a stern reminder to others they can result in the same choice learn about – definitely not through words, but through the love and peace you imply to them. (2:2-3) The straightforward existence of an instructor of God is a reminder. His thoughts request the ability to question exactly what the patient has accepted as true. The sufferer – really most of us – has accepted the ego’s thought system as true.
To continue doing this important caution, quite often you’d never the words, “The same choice I make you may make, because the brain is one.” Love’s presence which is outside the ego’s thought strategy is what teaches, not by your words, but with the teacher you have selected in your mind, the presence within you. You could be teaching ACIM and obtain every theological point correct, but if there is no love inside your heart, you aren’t teaching ACIM (Ibid Kindness, Vol.1, Kindle Locations 396-399, underline mine).
A teacher of God is anyone who has accepted their function, which would be to teach and learn forgiveness… We teach might know about are learning and, as we train it to say, we learn it (Just what it Ways to Be considered a Teacher Of God, Part 1, FACIM, Kenneth Wapnick).
God’s peace is recognized at first by simply another thing: In most way it really is totally unlike all previous experiences. It calls in mind nothing that went before. It brings with it no past associations. It’s a new thing entirely (M-20.2).
The ego commands action (like posting comments, quotes and using language “at” others). The Holy Spirit doesn’t command. It merely reminds (T-5.II.7). Remember, it’s either, i.e., an unloving or loving reminder. – always.
Within the Appendix of, “The Healing Strength of Kindness: Vol. 1,” Wapnick reprinted, “Do No Injury to Anyone.” It is just a short essay on implementing the Hippocratic oath in to the practice of ACIM, i.e., a fairly easy reminder for all those students of the Course in Miracles who are looking for to make use of its principles to moving into the globe (Kindle location 678). He explores the way you must to get a close and honest study of how we previously being using others inside our lives to satisfy our desires and requires, and exactly how it can be harmful because we have no regard to the welfare of others. Using people for our needs is definitely an attack to them which engenders guilt in us (Kindle location 699). A “eureka” moment occurs – I finally realize Personally i have tried the written word for attack (Kindle location 709, underlining mine).
Harm will be the result of judgment. It is the dishonest act that follows a dishonest thought. It’s a verdict of guilt upon a brother, and thus on oneself. It’s the end of peace and the denial of learning (M-4.IV.1)… (as an unloving reminder in the attack shown to others thereby ourselves)… Thus, Jesus is explaining to us how our judgments of other people are preceded by our judgment of ourselves (M-4.IV.1, and Ibid, Kindle location 729). It states unequivocally – fairly at the beginning of his training – that the student of an Course in Miracles must learn that harmfulness has to be totally undone or he’d never learn the Holy Spirit’s lessons (M-4.IV.1:8-11, Ibid, Kindle location 739, parenthesis addition mine)
While we are not kind (no harming no attacking) we cannot learn nor comprehend the kind principles of the Course because we’re not putting them into practice. We’re justing sitting around talking online with all the ego via unloving reminders as attacks all of which are forms of precisely the same murderous thought because we refuse to look within and also perform the forgiveness work.
