Among the biggest secrets we try to help keep is a sense of autonomy and pride. The idea or feeling that you are important in a few special way, that you are loved by a special person, that somebody is providing you special attention, they are a number of the ego's very subtle secrets. We are attempting to hide our Divine Self and are playing every one of these different games, which seem to be very upsetting. It's pretty depressing and it certainly doesn't go anywhere, so we try to have scraps of special love, attention and recognition to prop ourselves up.
We work so hard at becoming “better people”, at gaining greater intelligence and more skills. We desire to be liked more and be much more popular. The whole self-help industry is centered on improving the self in order to become a better you. That's another trick we secretly play on ourselves, thinking we've to help keep spinning our wheels wanting to become better what is a course in miracles. This self-improvement game is another secret we can to learn to let it go of. It's very relaxing when you start to realize that you do not need certainly to become any benefit than you already are. You were created perfect. It's not through self-improvement that you discover peace but through self-acceptance.
As I caused A Course in Miracles, I really could note that there clearly was a concern with divine love in my own mind. I realized this was the ego's anxiety about losing itself. The ego is afraid to be exposed and being viewed as a puff of nothingness. That's the fear of intimacy. We talk about this fear in relationships, which may also be projected as anxiety about sexual intimacy, but it's really a concern with dropping our persona, our mask of individuality. It's the fear to getting swept away by a glorious love, a love so powerful that none of us may also imagine something as glorious and powerful!
For me, those will be the big secrets, since it doesn't start with this great awareness. It always starts with feeling like you've done something amiss, whether you've masturbated, stolen something, mistreated somebody, or there is something in your thoughts that you've judged as so hideous that that you do not even want to face it, you just want to forget about this and push it out of awareness.
Underneath all those memories and thoughts, could be the belief that individuals are separated. This is actually the “secret” we hide. It is actually an impossible belief, but we believe that it is true; We've judged it as horrific and have pushed it out of awareness. All unconscious guilt originates from this belief in separation. And as you truly give yourself to the miracle, you are feeling all those hidden beliefs and secrets are being washed away and you finally face this hidden belief in separation!
A Course In Miracles is a guide which brings you tools to reverse all fearful thoughts and beliefs. Using these tools makes it possible to find the complete sense of freedom and peace you've always been yearning for.
