the decision and the power of your mind that you can employ at this moment, will show you instantly that any idea of joy or happiness or peace or love that you have ever had, is available to you at this instant. In other words, everything is an idea and all ideas are in your mind right now.

This week's featured video download from the Master Teacher Of A Course In Miracles bears the startling title, "How To Heal the Sick And Raise The Dead," and underscores the necessity for the individual to recognize the true power of the mind.
As Jesus Christ often repeats in A Course In Miracles, "The mind is very powerful, and never loses its creative force. It never sleeps. Every instant it is creating. It is hard to recognize that thought and belief combine into a power surge that can literally move mountains. It appears at first glance that to believe such power about yourself is arrogant, but that is not the real reason you do not believe it. You prefer to believe that your thoughts cannot exert real influence because you are actually afraid of them. This may allay awareness of the guilt, but at the cost of perceiving the mind as impotent. If you believe that what you think is ineffectual you may cease to be afraid of it, but you are hardly likely to respect it. There are no idle thoughts. All thinking produces form at some level."
In the video the Master Teacher serves as an agency of transformation, forthrightly declaring, that he is "a healing image in your own mind, offering you the wholeness and perfection that represents the entirety of the universe." He offers the assurance that "the decision and the power of your mind that you can employ at this moment, will show you instantly that any idea of joy or happiness or peace or love that you have ever had, is available to you at this instant. In other words, everything is an idea and all ideas are in your mind right now."
The Master Teacher clearly demonstrates, as Jesus says in Lesson 152 of A Course In Miracles, "No one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision. No one suffers pain except his choice elects this state for him. No one can grieve nor fear nor think him sick unless these are the outcomes that he wants. And no one dies without his own consent. Nothing occurs but represents your wish, and nothing is omitted that you choose. Here is your world, complete in all details. Here is its whole reality for you. And it is only here salvation is."
The video is not for the casual viewer. Those who are genuinely determined to experience life beyond the confines of limited human consciousness will be richly rewarded and will welcome the light of real communication offered by the Master Teacher and experience for themselves the truth of such statements as, "You who perceive yourself as weak and frail, with futile hopes and devastated dreams, born but to die, to weep and suffer pain, hear this: All power is given unto you in earth and Heaven. There is nothing that you cannot do. And as Jesus continues, "Why is it strange to you that faith can move mountains? This is indeed a little feat for such a power."
"I raised the dead by knowing that life is an eternal attribute of everything that the living God created. Why do you believe it is harder for me to inspire the dis-spirited or to stabilize the unstable? I do not believe that there is an order of difficulty in miracles; you do. I have called and you will answer. I understand that miracles are natural, because they are expressions of love. My calling you is as natural as your answer, and as inevitable."
The sick are healed as you let go all thoughts of sickness, and the dead arise when you let thoughts of life replace all thoughts you ever held of death.
