Are you escaping the body through A Course In Miracles? 💥
I have just started to share my message and connect with the wider Course community. One thing that has really stood out to me is I disagree with some of things people say about the body and feel I have an important thing to share 🙏
My journey was in reverse and not like any other Course students I have met. When I was 20 I had a powerful enlightenment experience and then got introduced to the Course a year later as a 21 year old Uni student (through DU and then buying the course). To be honest I found I understood it very naturally, as it correlated and helped explain some of my strange experiences of the year before and seemed like an old friend. Working with many teachers/masters since then has helped me go deeper and embody what happened when I was 20 much more.
AND THE BIGGEST THING THAT HAS STOOD OUT IS THE TEMPTATION TO ESCAPE ON SOME OBVIOUS AND SOME SUBTLE LEVELS
A Course In Miracles shares this body and whole world is not real. To understand this intellectually is challenging. To understand it experentially is rare. To embody this fully means the words have no meaning any longer. For me the mature and practical message about the body is this. Ultimately yes nothing in this world (including bodies) is real but to completely embody this you must explore every trauma, every desire and every aspect of the body in full open-heartedness with the intention of treating it well. Through this full embodiment then the unreality of the body becomes clear 🙏
What a paradox, what a mystery and what a journey. Thank you for reading if you made it this far and I look forward to sharing with you some more 💛💛💛
