One of many biggest secrets we try to help keep is a sense of autonomy and pride. The concept or feeling that you are important in certain special way, that you are loved by a special person, that somebody is providing you special attention, these are a few of the ego's very subtle secrets. We are attempting to hide our Divine Self and are playing each one of these different games, which appear to be very upsetting. It is pretty depressing and it really doesn't go anywhere, so we try to obtain scraps of special love, attention and recognition to prop ourselves up.Acim
We work so very hard at becoming “better people”, at gaining greater intelligence and more skills. We wish to be liked more and be more popular. The whole self-help industry is dedicated to improving the self to help you become a better you. That's another trick we secretly play on ourselves, thinking we have to help keep spinning our wheels attempting to become better. This self-improvement game is another secret we can to understand to let it go of. It is very relaxing once you start to appreciate that you don't need to become any benefit than you already are. You're created perfect. It is not through self-improvement that you discover peace but through self-acceptance.
As I worked with A Course in Miracles, I could see that there is an anxiety about divine love within my mind. I realized this is the ego's anxiety about losing itself. The ego is afraid to be exposed and being regarded as a puff of nothingness. That's driving a car of intimacy. We discuss this fear in relationships, which is sometimes projected as anxiety about sexual intimacy, but it's really an anxiety about dropping our persona, our mask of individuality. It is driving a car of getting swept away by a glorious love, a love so powerful that none of us can also imagine something as glorious and powerful!
For me, those are the big secrets, because it doesn't start with this great awareness. It always starts with feeling like you've done something very wrong, whether you've masturbated, stolen something, mistreated somebody, or there's something in your head that you've judged as so hideous that that you do not even want to face it, you only want to forget about any of it and push it out of awareness.
Underneath those memories and thoughts, is the belief that individuals are separated. This is the “secret” we hide. It really is an impossible belief, but we believe it is true; We have judged it as horrific and have pushed it out of awareness. All unconscious guilt arises from this belief in separation. And as you truly give yourself over to the miracle, you're feeling those hidden beliefs and secrets are increasingly being washed away and you finally face this hidden belief in separation!
A Course In Miracles is a book which brings you tools to reverse all fearful thoughts and beliefs. Using these tools afford them the ability to find the complete sense of freedom and peace you've always been yearning for.
