My mind holds only what I think with God - A Course in Miracles
At a certain stage of the journey, probably a few times over, you will have the following question: what comes from God or Source, and what is my own ego talking?
The answer to that question is “my mind HOLDS only what I think with God”. The key word there is HOLDS.
If Science had to finally map the particles of everything down to their smallest elements, they’d find out those smallest elements are thoughts, or words.
Words of faith - that’s what the world is built on: the words (thoughts) we choose to believe in. So it’s almost fair to say that a thought is a word you have faith, or believe, in.
So the whole of the morphic field (reality as we know it), is basically a swirling mass of everyone’s combined thoughts.
Everyone’s combined thoughts… and there’s some cray-cray stuff going on in people’s heads lol ;)
As you move about in the morphic field (we call this being alive, so no you can’t avoid the field lol), you are exposed to all these many thoughts.
As you advance, you’re even more exposed to thoughts, because you become more adept at reading the morphic field. Without fail, as you advance, you tap into the morphic field more. Tapping into a higher level of the morphic field is what advancement actually is, in fact.
So you become more sensitive to thoughts that are floating around out there as your intuition kicks in - which means these weird thoughts can often arrive out nowhere.
At the same time these thoughts are drawn to you because you’re advancing in the morphic field, because you’re meant to process and reconcile them so that they aren’t fears that can be used against you later. Also because your higher level in the field means that you now have the processing power to be able to deal with them.
So, with all these many thoughts that you can’t escape out there, how do you know which are the ones coming from God.
There’s good news and bad news…. the good news is that the answer is simple, the bad news is that the answer is patience.
This is a lesson of patience and self control.
Yes, all these thoughts arise, and you need to look at and deal with them, and reconcile what is yours to reconcile, but the ones that stay? The thoughts that your mind HOLDS? Those are the thoughts you share with God.
When you implement this belief (word with faith behind it, i.e. you buy into it and accept it as real) of “my mind HOLDS only what I think with God,” then it becomes about patience and self discipline, and it is in self discipline that a Master first shows himself.
So, once you’ve had the shift, and dropped the mirror, you wait… in fact after anything happens, you wait. Once time has passed (think between 72 hours and six weeks), then you can see if this is fleeting or if it’s something that sticks, i.e. a thought you share with God.
You wait and see. Reconcile what is yours, and give it time to discover what sticks in your mind.
The ideas that stick? The ones that come back on their own - without you having to check those notes you scribbled down - those are the ideas you share with God. Those are the thoughts you share with God.
