Jesus says, “I need devoted teachers who share my aim of healing the mind.”
The Course Immersion is not for everyone. But it could be very helpful if you want to teach Jesus’ message of the resurrection of the mind. By teach we mean demonstrate, not teach a class.
In Part One of the Course Immersion, which begins January 13, 2016, our curriculum focuses on becoming skillful in making the one change of mind that changes the way we see everything. If you hear the call to make this kind of change you are among the very few that choose to hear.
The following article is excerpted from a post I made on the School For A Course In Miracles website at SFACIM.org …
A Course in Miracles is about healing the mind and nothing else.
In the Manual for Teachers, Question #9, ARE CHANGES REQUIRED IN THE LIFE SITUATIONS OF GOD’S TEACHERS?, Jesus replies: “Changes are required in the minds of God’s teachers.” The emphasis on the word minds is Jesus’, not mine.
The confusion of the mind with the brain is an error made by even the brightest scholars throughout history to include present day. It has taken the mind of Jesus– a mind that is free of illusions– to teach us the distinction between mind and brain so that we can avail ourselves of a power that will change our destiny from one that always ends in death to one of resurrection of the mind and eternal life.
Life is in the mind, and only the mind. There is no world and there are no bodies! They only appear as real to us by our desire to see them. If we are willing to learn they are imagined we would never be affected by either of them.
This may seem an impossible task and yet Jesus assures us that it is not only possible but that it is simple. The difficulty lies only in our resistance. In spite of our enormous suffering, we want to be right about who, what, and where we think we are. We think we are children of the ego, the home of “evil, darkness and sin”. We think we are bodies, born of other bodies. And we think we live in a world that can affect us positively or negatively.
