Mind and Heart Can Heal Just as the Body Can

“Atonement, or correction, is not of you but of God. You might think of this in terms of nature and look upon nature’s ability to correct itself. You are a part of nature. Your body can correct or heal itself, and so can your mind and heart. . .if they are allowed to do so.” (T3:14.12)

We can heal much as nature heals. This is a new idea from A Course of Love, not given in A Course in Miracles. But, like, ACIM, this message from A Course of Love emphasizes that atonement, correction, is of God. In a sense, we have to get ourselves out of the way. We have to let God do His work in us.

We already know that our physical body can heal itself. Here we learn that our mind and heart can heal as well. And we get out of ourselves, and into God, and then the healing occurs.

We will not have to wait long. One good thing about both A Course in Miracles and A Course of Love is that Jesus never tells us that we have to wait to experience blessings from God. Even if the healing of the separation will take millions of years (which he says in ACIM), still they can be happy years for us, living the elevated Self of form, and ministering to others who are coming to know what we have come to know.

The future looks bright for us. Once begun, the ending is sure. We will experience atonement, and we will experience Christ-consciousness, and we only need a small willingness to walk into those experiences.

Let us give the Self that small willingness today.

  1. I really like this post even though I am still not a strong believer on God and religion in general as I havent yet found my own faith. But I really support the thought of power that our minds and bodies have, detached from everything else.

  2. Thank you. Your post inspire me.

    Brownie Ware, who was working as a palliative care nurse, wrote in her book “5 regrets of dying” that every person she accompanied had found peace before they left. Every single one of them.

    If we could do that in our last moments, could we possibly do that a little earlier too? Could we find peace sometime sooner and live in peace? I do see possibilities. Perhaps it is indeed up to our willingness as you wrote in this post.
