Ask: Can other parts of the sonship influence us while we're dreaming?

… is my illusion being impacted by a collective illusion? … if the Voice identified as Jesus broke into Helen's dream, can other spirits or parts of the sonship also influence us while we're dreaming: i.e. so called ascended masters or channeled souls, aliens, demons etc.?... P (March 30, 2012)
            There is only one mind that seems split between Truth (God) and not-Truth. A Course in Miracles calls this the “son of God”.  This is the one mind that is “dreaming” of the universe of form, time, and all of the stories in time. And each seemingly-individual mind projected into the dream also projects its own meaning onto the universe of form. So there is an overarching, or collective, dream in which cause and effect applies. This “story” is neutral in that it has no meaning in itself. And then there is also your individual dream, which is your projection of meaning onto the universe of form. For example, if the company that you work for goes out of business then this has a…

Ask: Is it attacking my brother to file for child support?

I have a 14 teen year old daughter and her father feels that he shouldn't have to pay child support. I want to file for child support because I really do need his help. But when I bring it up to him he attacks me with his thoughts and then I feel guilty that I am attacking Christ.  Is it attack towards my brother to file for child support? I find my mind justifying my reasons and I get confused. I really want to release all attack thoughts because they bring nothing but hell to my dream. Sometimes I am confused about what is attack. – YH
            You “attack” yourself whenever you choose the personal thought system (ego) because it is not you. This is the same as attacking Christ, because Christ is the label given to the universal, eternal Truth in you. So everything that proceeds from your choice for the personal self then perpetuates your attack on yourself. This is not “bad” or “wrong”. Christ is not changed in any way by this. It is simply a mistake that brings you pain. So…

Ask: Am I missing something in the forgiveness process?

I have a boss who has been undergoing treatment for Bipolar Disorder for over 30 years, and I have all of the typical litany of “I love my job, but I hate my boss because……” issues that many of us have throughout our lives, which could let my ego be obsessed with anger and revenge thoughts, if I let it.  He has several other health issues, which I honestly believe I could help in healing if it were not for the fact that when I look within, and am vigilant of my thoughts, I know that I am not truly forgiving him, but hold some sort of deep seated pleasure at his “justifiable punishment.”  Yes, I realize that if anyone deserves forgiveness “in the world,” it is someone whose inherited and biological issues are the total cause of his hurtful actions. Yes, I realize that we are all worthy, and during or immediately after meditation, I feel I have turned it over to Spirit for healing, but either I am not truly handing it over, or I am not yet seeing the personal healing that might be occur…

Ask: Is feeling "elevated" from the world part of the process?

I have been doing the Course since three years ago, and I deeply felt I resonated with its message of Love as the only Truth…After some months of doing it, my life started to change, I felt the calling to change my way of living, to leave behind my career as a lawyer, and I started to get very in touch with "spirituality"...I have made many of the mistakes you point out in your blog...for a long time I resisted the world, tried to force the experience of the Course, and went into spiritual sacrifice, I went deeply in trying to understand my ego and others’ egos…I felt depressed, and kind of elevated from this world... instead of feeling joyfully and lovingly here on earth...I am not sure if what I lived was necessary, but I know that today that I want to choose differently...I am starting to choose what feels light, joyful, and free instead of dense and heavy…But I feel I need a guidance on this matter, because there are times when I feel I am working on something deep, (for…
