The Healed Relationship

“The holy relationship is the expression of the holy instant in living in this world. Like everything about salvation, the holy instant is a practical device, witnessed to by its results.”
(My notes: Jesus really packs it in with these two sentences. An expression of living in this world is a holy relationship and its device is the holy instant, which is witnessed by its results.)
“The holy instant never fails. The experience of it is always felt.”
“Yet, without expression, it is not remembered.”
(Does this translate to; “It’s just another day for the Holy Spirit, but for man it is a giant step in perception?" Actually, when our ego recognizes that it has witnessed a holy instant, it cannot disregard the memory of the expression or its experience with its occurrence.)

“The holy relationship is a constant reminder of the experience in which the relationship became what it is. And the unholy relationship is a continuing hymn of hate in praise of its maker, so is the holy relationship a happy song of praise to the Redeemer of relationships.”
(Who or what might it be, this maker that gathers all continuing hymns of hate?)

“The holy relationship, a major step toward the perception of the real world, is learned.”
(Jesus is telling us that we must learn how to perceive a holy relationship; and the learning device should be the holy instant.)( This also precludes our ego from attempting something it cannot do.)
“It is the old unholy relationship transformed and seen anew. The holy relationship is a phenomenal teaching accomplishment. In all its aspects, as it begins, develops, and becomes accomplished, it represents the reversal of the unholy relationship.”
“Be comforted in this__the only difficult phase is the beginning. For here, the goal of the relationship is abruptly shifted to the exact opposite of what is was . This is the first result of offering the relationship to the Holy Spirit to use for His purposes.”

(Whenever we re-read the text; as I first read it, it was like eating ice cream, cool, smooth and creamy……so much that I could not find much to argue with, and it seemed so natural that it had to be good, and it was. Yet, to attempt a relation of what says to another; well now that was a different story all together. Just like this short transcription, I just opened the book and looked down at the page. Hmmm…………I thought, how neat; as having had a holy instant experience this makes more sense in the reflection of my own results, versus just words. Words without an expression are forgotten.)

Love to all and enjoy the Course; remembering that it was written for our egos, and with our egos learning something that exists without their control, well in the humility of that recognition then our Self, that Christ Self opens to pass the peace of Christ with Its Light into the world drawing unto Itself another egocentric soul waiting for forgiveness and love.

“that Christ Self opens to pass the peace of Christ with Its Light into the world drawing unto Itself another egocentric soul waiting for forgiveness and love. Lightdrops”

I seem to have a different understanding. It is not my function to tell a brother he is wrong, but I would ask for clarification. Christ and Self are two orders of reality. Christ being all inclusive and Self being a separate part. Christ Self seems to be a contradiction in terms.

To draw in an egocentric soul would mean there was something separate to draw in. If you are referring to the part of your mind that thinks it is an egocentric soul, then you are asking Christ to acknowledge an illusion. The Ego can not know the Son.

One in Christ, David
