You understand that you are healed when you give healing. You accept forgiveness as accomplished in yourself when you forgive. You recognize your brother as yourself, and thus do you perceive that you are whole. There is no miracle you cannot give...
Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
As A Course In Miracles International Teachers of God gear up for the celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace (September 14 -23, 2012), Event Coordinator, Teacher of God and renowned author, Ray Comeau is posting daily invitations to all who have been touched by acts of forgiveness, to share their experiences in writing, as part of Forgiveness Week's Creative Writing event at the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI.
Ray Comeau, who will be conducting workshops in the segment of the September festival entitled, “Forgiveness: The Meaning, The Experience and Expression in Writing”, frames his daily invitations in unusual, tantalizing and interesting ways. In a recent blog post, for example, Comeau writes, “Of course, there is no world, but there does appear to be a world projected by the body’s eyes, while all the time there is only the world seen through the eyes of Christ.”
Comeau explains, “Jesus [in A Course In Miracles] uses rich metaphors to carry us beyond the false world to the true world, and that is the root meaning of metaphor, 'meta,' beyond, and 'phor,' to carry.
“Look at the metaphors Jesus uses to carry us beyond our false, projections in Lesson 159, I give the miracles I have received:
'the center of redemption'
'the hearth of mercy'
'Christ’s Vision is the holy ground in which
The lilies of forgiveness set their roots.'
'the store of miracles'
'the everlasting sanctity of God'
Comeau then concludes by saying, “Please write about your experience of forgiving thoughts in 600 words, or less, and Submit Your Essay, using this link:
Ray Comeau's workshops and all the events of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace aim to make manifest and celebrate the truth of Lesson 159 of A Course In Miracles wherein Jesus Christ states, “You understand that you are healed when you give healing. You accept forgiveness as accomplished in yourself when you forgive. You recognize your brother as yourself, and thus do you perceive that you are whole. There is no miracle you cannot give, for all are given you. Receive them now by opening the storehouse of your mind where they are laid, and giving them away.
“Christ's vision is a miracle. It comes from far beyond itself, for it reflects Eternal Love and the rebirth of love which never dies, but has been kept obscure. Christ's vision pictures Heaven, for it sees a world so like to Heaven that what God created perfect can be mirrored there. The darkened glass the world presents can show but twisted images in broken parts. The real world pictures Heaven's innocence.
“Christ's vision is the miracle in which all miracles are born. It is their source, remaining with each miracle you give, and yet remaining yours. It is the bond by which the giver and receiver are united in extension here on earth, as they are one in Heaven. Christ beholds no sin in anyone. And in His sight the sinless are as one. Their holiness was given by His Father and Himself.
“Christ's vision is the bridge between the worlds. And in its power can you safely trust to carry you from this world into one made holy by forgiveness. Things which seem quite solid here are merely shadows there; transparent, faintly seen, at times forgot, and never able to obscure the light that shines beyond them. Holiness has been restored to vision, and the blind can see.”
International Forgiveness Week and the Weekend of Perfect Peace will be observed worldwide on September 14 – 23, 2012.
For the ten days, A Course In Miracles International will hold special celebration events at the Miracles Healing Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI and in affiliate centers around the world.
