A Course in Miracles tells us that “the world was made as an attack on God… [and] was meant to be a place where God could enter not” (W-pII.3.2:1,4). And yet Jesus also tells us that the Holy Spirit can use what we made to hurt “to heal instead of harm” (T-25.VI.4:12). Our willingness to choose the Holy Spirit as our teacher can allow the tables to be turned on the ego. We begin to learn that what we seem to be reacting to outside in the world is literally a reflection of our mind’s unconscious content – “your picture of the world can only mirror what is within” (W-pI.73.5:1). When our unconscious choice for the ego becomes conscious, we can then make a different choice. This theme, that “the world…is the witness to your state of mind, the outside picture of an inward condition” (T-21.in.1:5), will be explored through readings and discussion, with emphasis on its application in our daily lives.
