I find this one a bit challenging, which is good. As I understand it, if I feel attacked, by myself or anyone else, I also feel the need to defend myself. So, if I drop my defenses, I won’t be attacked, and one of the defenses I use is sickness. If I get sick, I am using that illness to say that such things as bacteria and viruses are real, as are all the other awful things in the world. Now, this doesn’t mean that I should further attack myself with guilt if I succumb to a cold or other disease. It just means realizing that such a ploy as sickness is indeed a defense, a way to keep the world I’ve participated in making real. I will not throw the Course book at people who get sick, especially if they’re students of it. Love and compassion, for myself and the other parts of God’s One Creation, are ways to begin to wake up from the nightmare.
Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
