Purley Chase Ln
Mancetter, Atherstone CV9 2RQ
4-Day Residential Retreat Weekend at Purley Chase Centre
A sanctuary for the joyful re-discovery of the singularity of the Word of God and illumination of mind in Christ. The power of God’s Voice, His Teacher and Guide are the Help given us to accomplish the goal of the Atonement. Following this Guidance of our own free will leads to effortless living as we assume our rightful roles as bringers of God’s Peace. Yet It can seem very elusive and is subject to our delusions and misinterpretations of what we think we want, or need. It takes effort and willingness to listen and to accept that, to the Holy Spirit all happenings are lessons that will reinstitute the laws of love whereby our perfect happiness is ensured.
“The Holy Spirit: – He knows because He is part of God; He perceives because He was sent to save humanity. He is the great correction principle; the bringer of true perception, the inherent power of the vision of Christ. He is the light in which the forgiven world is perceived; in which the face of Christ alone is seen. He never forgets the Creator or His creation. He never forgets the Son of God. He never forgets you. And He brings the Love of your Father to you in an eternal shining that will never be obliterated because God has put it there.” C-6.3
There is great need to understand the Help established for us by our Creator-Source at the moment of the great error that gave rise to illusions. It is easily objectified, misinterpreted and subject to all kinds of wild spiritual ideas and imaginings that can lead away from the need to confront the conflict exactly as it is, within the mind. Yet, in every holy encounter, your holy relationship with your brother, God’s Helper is there, clear and evident, in plain site and impossible to misconstrue.
Your relationship with the “great Transformer of Perception” is paramount for awakening to the Eternal Self you thought was lost. We dedicate our time together, under His direction, to evolving this relationship, that we might be so transformed as to manifest His Spirit to the world. There are many beautiful mysteries to discover in this relationship with our Teacher, as His healing Voice is heard through us.
“The Holy Spirit abides in the part of your mind that is part of the Christ Mind. He represents your Self and your Creator, Who are One. He speaks for God and also for you, being joined with Both. And therefore it is He Who proves Them One. He seems to be a Voice, for in that form He speaks God’s Word to you. He seems to be a Guide through a far country, for you need that form of help.” C-6.4
“To you who still believe you live in time and know not it is gone, the Holy Spirit still guides you through the infinitely small and senseless maze you still perceive in time, though it has long since gone. You think you live in what is past. Each thing you look upon you saw but for an instant, long ago, before its unreality gave way to truth. Not one illusion still remains unanswered in your mind. Uncertainty was brought to certainty so long ago that it is hard indeed to hold it to your heart, as if it were before you still.” T-26.V.4.

“The mind that serves the Holy Spirit is unlimited forever, in all ways, beyond the laws of time and space, unbound by any preconceptions, and with strength and power to do whatever it is asked. Attack thoughts cannot enter such a mind, because it has been given to the Source of love, and fear can never enter in a mind that has attached itself to love. It rests in God. And who can be afraid who lives in Innocence, and only loves?” W-199.2
