Trust in Holy Spirit Shatters Our Limiting Illusions

Byline: FROM HEART TO HEART By Chikur Cameron and Aloha Heart For The Register-Guard

In our relationship as partners, the Holy Spirit is our teacher leading us home to God. Through his teaching we learn a new way of relating to one another and to all of life.

`To have, give all to all.' - A Course In Miracles

An important tenet of relating is that we do not use our relationship to deny love for ourselves or anyone else. In our individual search for God, we began studying "A Course In Miracles," which teaches freedom from identification with the limited self.

As we are experiencing moments of greater openness and trust with ourselves and others, we are opening to an expanded "self-identity" with God. Our lives are dedicated to serving this purpose. Forgiveness provides the stepping-stones. Forgiveness is the practice of seeing through the illusion of apparent separation from everything and everyone to the loving truth that we are one.

Nothing outside of self (the Divine) can ever provide love. Only God can serve that function and God can only be recognized in wholeness. We cannot join with God while still remaining apart from anything or anyone. Our shared commitment to God has shown us that we can trust Holy Spirit to use every situation to heal our minds of illusions that we hold about ourselves and each other.

Knowing this we can unmask our darkest thoughts and fears to one another; we trust in the highest outcome. It helps free us from jealousy, competition and other fantasies of separation. Whenever self-limiting ideas of anger, guilt or fear surface, we are committed to bringing them to light so the Holy Spirit may heal us.

Honesty and self-examination quicken this process.
