Ask: Can you explain your different versions of "mind"?
“…I try to follow your descriptions when you refer to the mind but it seems there are so many versions of “mind” I wondered if you could find an easy way for the very simple person (me) to explain so I can understand? So for example in your last mind you mentioned--Universal mind--Universal split mind--hybrid mind, and simply mind. Is this linked to the ladder of the split which Kenneth Wapnick referred to?” - CL
There is only one Mind (Truth), but we experience Mind as though It is split between Truth and not-Truth. The part of Mind where the idea of not-Truth seems to occur I refer to as the one or universal split-mind. (In A Course in Miracles this is called the “Son of God”). It is this split-mind that projects the universe of form, including billions of versions (“sons of God”) of itself. You experience yourself as one of these projected split-minds. The split in you shows up as two thought systems, the Awareness of Truth (Holy Spirit) and the personal thought system (ego).
The “hybrid mind” I mentioned for the first time in last week’s article (http://acimmentor.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-hybrid-mind.html) is a recent experience for me. It is where the boundary between this particular projection and the universal split-mind fell away, at least in part. This split-mind for a while was aware of expressing not just itself but the universal split-mind.
All split-minds are part of the universal split-mind and are always expressing it. What is unfolding in the universe of form as the story of time is the Undoing (Atonement) of the universal split-mind. I sometimes refer to this story as the “flow of the universe”. The story for each seemingly-individual split-mind is a part of the Undoing, whether it seems to be or not. For those of us who manifest the Undoing and rise in consciousness (awareness, perception) it is inevitable that the boundary between the universal and seemingly-individual split-mind falls away.
I have not studied Ken Wapnick so I do not know if this is related to his ladder of the split.
