I do want to thank Jason, and everyone at the Monastery again for welcoming me with such openness. I’m still amazed that I was granted this possibility to see shining samples of the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and for the first time in an extended while, I do not feel alone.
Section of me wanted to stay longer, but beneath that desire was the idea that I could be this for the incorrect reason; as a means to avoid my problems. acim teacher The stronger feeling was, and is, that my travels will continue.
Before I left, Jason asked if I’d had any insights. What I’m about to share wasn’t yet clear in those days; only on the drive away made it happen coalesce.
That morning, several lines from the Vance Joy song kept running through my head, “I never needs to have told you, never needs to have enable you to see inside. Don’t are interested troubling your brain, won’t you allow it to be?” This confused me as I possibly could not think of anything that I’d stated that I felt regret for.
Eventually, the phrase, “don’t are interested troubling your mind” stood out. This reminded me that the absolute most prominent fear I’d in coming to the Monastery was that I would somehow interfere having its residents’satisfaction, by simply my presence alone. This belief that I possibly could negatively affect other people’s state of mind has been with me for many years, and has colored many of my past experiences and relationships.
This fear left my awareness soon after I arrived. On the drive away it rose again, but I remembered David saying in one of is own videos that minds cannot attack. I cried and laughed, and now feel as if the belief is being (has been?) released.
You will find other issues that happened that felt important, but I can’t think of them right now.
