a new year of freedom and joy

It’s a new year, a new day, a new you!

Symbolically, the mid-Winter darkness represents primary ideas and powerful forces that bind the ego-body-mind to the unconscious darkness of the separation. In quietness, silence, we hear and understand what keeps us exiled from Heaven and there is internal movement as we process through. Here we are changed as we look at the obstacles to realizing our true nature in God. This can be a seminal moment, a transformative emergence into the light and power of holiness to enter a higher, energetically determined commitment to a Singular Reality. It’s a new year, a new day, a new you! Fresh possibilities appear, opportunities emerge, new vistas open up that lead us on to follow Him and find the freedom and joy of being alive and awake as a Saviour of the world.

There is much to do, and we have been long delayed. Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening.

“You have never given any problem to the Holy Spirit He has not solved for you, nor will you ever do so. You have never tried to solve anything yourself and been successful. Is it not time you brought these facts together and made sense of them?

This is the year for the application of the ideas that have been given you. For the ideas are mighty forces, to be used and not held idly by. They have already proved their power sufficiently for you to place your faith in them, and not in their denial.

This year invest in truth, and let it work in peace. Have faith in Him Who has faith in you. Think what you have really seen and heard, and recognize it. Can you be alone with witnesses like these?

T-16.II.9

“There is much to do, and we have been long delayed. Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening. Make this year different by making it all the same. And let all your relationships be made holy for you. This is our will. Amen.”

T-15.XI.10


“The way to God is through forgiveness here. There is no other way…
God is our goal; forgiveness is the means by which our minds return to Him at last.”

The Illuminate Mind Foundation aims to be a vital resource for the enlightenment of mind through the extraordinary gift to all mankind that is A Course in Miracles. It is a continuing forum for the joyful re-discovery that you are now and have always been a complete, continuous and whole part of all the Love, Light and Joy of Eternal Life.

The divine mind-science of A Course in Miracles presents a curriculum for the complete transformation of identity, through ‘true forgiveness’, to the discovery of perfection and holiness as the original nature of mind in God. This enlightened self-realization we recognize as the singular eternal solution to the existential problem of false separation from God and the condition of suffering inherent in the world.

“You are as God created you. There is nothing else to learn, nothing else to know, and nothing else that has any value. For in this one idea is everyone set free along with you.”

Now is the time!- This is an invitation to join in the adventure of awakening, to step into the great transition to Truth, to take the “journey without distance” from the limited, fearful condition of the human ego-identity, to the freedom of recognizing the eternal Self as perfect, healed and whole in the transcendental light of Christ; the illuminate mind “that knows its Source, its Self, its Holiness.

The posts published below are expressions of Charity as a way of living in this world.  Charity is an act of faith amongst equals that demonstrates the continuing miracle of the forgiving mind; our love for one another, our need to learn to “give all to all” and to be “truly helpful” in all ways at all times and to all.
