“The Holy Spirit is the highest communication medium. Miracles do not involve this type of communication, because they are temporary communication devices. When you return to your original form of communication with God by direct revelation, the need for miracles is over. (T6)”
1 – Turning to the Holy Spirit
Here is the reason that we are to turn to the Holy Spirit for guidance. He is the “highest” communication medium. When we turn to Him, it even seems that miracles are not as necessary or important to our daily life. We have gone to the highest when we listen to the Holy Spirit.
2 – Christ-Consciousness
Only in the next step, Christ-consciousness, do we move beyond the Holy Spirit and His time, and into the time of Christ (a tenet of A Course of Love). This is the state after Awakening, and there has been no general movement in our world toward Awakening for everyone.
3 – A View from Eckhart Tolle
Eckhart Tolle addressed this point in a CD entitled, “Even the Sun Will Die.” He is an awakened individual (author of The Power of Now and A New Earth) who is now a teacher without to a specific religion. But he does quote from A Course in Miracles in his writings. He believes that the Awakening is coming for more and more individuals, and he notes that he hears from many who have experienced Awakening. They turn to Eckhart when they cannot understand their own experiences.
4 – Miracles
Miracles, a different type of communication, do show us the way when our understanding is limited. We will be buoyed by miracles in a way that we miss if we try to depend upon ourselves alone. We always make mistakes. With miracles, a way is shown that will lead down the pathway of truth.
5 – Direct Revelation from God
Finally, we see direct revelation from God. It is likely that ACIM is here speaking of the Awakening, though elsewhere Jesus speaks of occasional revelation that reveals the end (T16).
6 – This ACIM Passage One of the Best
Nowhere are there greater promises in A Course in Miracles than in this brief passage, quoted above. It reveals the pathway from Holy Spirit to miracles to direct revelation.
I would welcome Your involvement to bring me closer to Awakening. I have long intuited the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and in recent times I have felt a inner assurance that may (or may not) be evidence of the Christ-consciousness that comes intermittently. I would sustain the Self of form, the Christ-consciousness. But You must show me how. I turn to You in humble request today that I might use all that You grant to me in the service of Your cause for our world.
Be with me when I am tired today, when I do not feel Your presence. And help me to relax into Your guiding care. I trust You completely to lead me home, not through death, but through making everythin in this world fresh and clean.
Thank You for guiding me through another day.
