Japanese A Course in Miracles trainees. She said that perhaps there was a seriousness that is available in to the technique.
Where is it that the vanity is getting in to this practice?Well, the vanity is very identified with the body. It informs you that you
have actually left God as well as now you are on your personal. It informs you Paradise and also Bliss is
not your home any longer; now your home is the body. So it informs you making the
best of the body. But in fact also, the vanity requires the body since it requires
something to relate to. And so, not just is the vanity understood the body
yet all its past behaviors and also future actions. It intends to sidetrack away
from your mind.
The vanity made this globe and also this body so you would certainly be meaningless. It made the brain approximately replace the mind. It informs you that the brain thinks.

So this is why we should relax while we are exercising A Program in Miracles everyday lesson(s). You have to permit lightness, for wit. You need to also allow that you can have fun with your spiritual method. That is what people inform me when I go around the globe. They claim, David, you are very lively. In some cases I will break out and sing in the middle of my workshop. I want to pretend that I am simply freely moving around the world and just having a good time.
