Dr. Jeffrey Seibert
A Course in Miracles tells us that we have forgotten who we are as God’s one Son (e.g., W-281.1) and instead have made up several layers of imagined identities, reflecting disturbed thought processes, or mental illness (P-2.IV.1). Our amnesia (T-19.IV.D.3:4) begins with believing we are a single, separate, individual self and culminates in the paranoid delusion that we are bodies living in a physical world, constantly threatened by forces beyond our control. This program will explore, through readings and discussion, how and why we seem to have ended up in the world and how, when we are ready, we can return to an awareness of our true Identity as God’s innocent Son (W-252). An important step in this process of return involves, with the help of our inner Therapist–the Holy Spirit or Jesus–learning to recognize our identity as mind, outside of time and space, with the power to choose wholeness and healing rather than fragmentation and illness, as we join together with our brother (T-18.I.10-13).
