A Course in Miracles has certain teachings that Jesus says will take a lot of willingness and a lot of determination, over what will seem like many years before it starts to come over the horizon and into your awareness.
One of the concepts that Jesus talks about in ACIM is the unhealed healer. It’s very tempting to pick up this book with all this great metaphysical wisdom and to start to assimilate it like you would as a human being and then say,
“Hmm, okay, I got the goods now, I can heal.” And then you’re looking around and trying to find somebody to heal, with all this new metaphysical wisdom that you’ve got.
Basically A Course in Miracles is saying that it takes a really full transfer of training to go from the unhealed healer, which is coming from a place of still seeing errors in people and the world, and thinking that you are sent there to offer the answers because of this book that you’ve read. Jesus says, ‘no actually to forgive you have to get so aligned with the Holy Spirit in your mind that you don’t see the error at all.’ You’re just happy, you’re just joyful, and that happiness and that joy will be the inspiration that heals them.
When other people are around you they will feel relaxed, they will feel like ‘wow, this person’s really happy and they’re not judging me, I can relax and be myself,’ and then that’s how the healing occurs when you feel relaxed. Generally people like to be happy, and gravitate towards happy people and if you have a happy state of mind then that will be a perfect ignition of healing, in fact that’s the whole healing. When you’re happy the whole world is healed along with you. “When you’re smiling the whole world smiles with you,” there it is, it’s A Course in Miracles. So that’s one that’s pretty common.
