Mission

“Souls cannot rest until everyone has found salvation.” (ACIM, COA ed., T-1.27:3)

Here Jesus says something that I read a long time ago in Edgar Cayce. (Jesus mentions Cayce in the complete edition of A Course in Miracles.) Edgar indicated that certain souls came to earth to rescue other souls who had lost the light and were trapped here. In this quotation, Jesus seems to be saying that we have a mission, to save souls. Of course, we aren’t encouraged to save souls if the people having those souls are not open to hearing from us. We wait until God’s Voice has spoken to their hearts.

I think that this statement of Jesus goes a long way toward explaining the heralding of the elevated Self of form in A Course of Love. We need to inhabit a physical body to fulfill our mission. A Course in Miracles had focused on the ethereal so much that many of us just wanted to be rid of the earth, to get on with a better place on the Other Side. But we are needed here.

Each day we might ask the Holy Spirit or our deeper Self what the miracles for the day really are. As we know, we don’t make this decision. We ask how we might best express love in our daily round. We ask, and we are told. Then we act.

    1. Many people believe that Jesus channeled both A Course in Miracles (via Helen Schucman) and A Course of Love (via Mari Perron). The statements in the “Mission” blog post were taken from A Course in Miracles, and the reference is given right after the quotation. The quotation is from the Circle of Atonement’s complete and annotated edition of ACIM.

      Thank you for your question, so that I could clarify.

      Love, Celia

  1. I love what you are sharing and in this blog how you remind us that our human form is as much a part of this journey as the Spirit. What I’ve seen missing is that whereas the human form was to be tools in the hands of Spirit, it has been the other way around. And, it is on this return to our source, our origins of being, when we remember, really KNOW we are Spirit, then the true collaboration of Spirit and Wo/man will function as intended in accomplishing our “individual Assignments from YHWH or Holy purposes”. I first got into a Course way back in 1982 … not readily available in Canada then I had to order it from the good old US of A!

  2. In Chapter 18 of the Text, there is a section entitled “The Happy Dream”. In that section it talks about “the plan to change your dreams of fear to happy dreams, from which you waken easily to knowledge.” I see this as very connected to the idea of the “elevated Self of form” as discussed in A Course of Love.
