Star Trek and A Course In Miracles

June 16, 2009

star-trek
Gene Roddenberry first conceived of the idea of STAR TREK in 1960, and the first episode was aired at 8:30 p.m. EST, on Thursday, September 8, 1966. The initial impact was not impressive. TV Guide said, “the sky’s not the limit on this ‘Trek’,” and Variety said the series “won’t work.” Because of a write-incampaign spearheaded by science fiction writers and tenacity of loyal fans, the series lasted three seasons.

From the first episode, STAR TREK was unique and one of the earliest dramas that presented the idea of form being illusion. In The Cage, the Enterprise crew kept blasting away at a large rock formation and could not see the damage they were doing. It remained solidly intact to their vision when, in actuality, it was destroyed. Captain Pike was tortured by illusions of past horrors made to see real. Even Vina, his love interest, was seen as beautiful to him, although she was actually old and misshapen. The inhabitants on Talos IV were able to project illusions and make them real to anyone they chose to influence. NBC said The Cage was “too cerebral” for the average person to understand.

Throughout the remaining 79 episodes, this illusion versus reality theme was repeated many times. In The Man Trap, a creature who lived on salt could “become” anyone it chose and therefore, masqueraded as various crew members in order to obtain salt. In Shore Leave, whatever one was thinking while on a specific Earth-like planet, was manifested as “real.” It was an entertaining example of how our thoughts become our life situation. Of course, on the show, this place was explained away as an “amusement park,” where one could “create his own pleasure” for recreation. It still changed our perception of reality forever. Another example is Spectre of the Gun, in which the gunfight at the OK Corral is re-enacted through the projections the Malkots are able to obtain from Kirk’s memory. The key to winning was to recognize and reject the illusion.

STAR TREK was enormously instrumental in preparing mankind for future concepts (like those we recently saw on The Secret) that would have seemed too far-fetched had we not been conditioned first. Meanwhile, as this series was subtly reshaping the masses’ concept of reality and illusion, another avenue toward the same destination was being paved. When humanity is ready for a quantum leap in consciousness, prophets come in all shapes and sized to various groups.

In the mid-sixties, Helen Schucman, a Jewish conservative Professor of Psychology at Columbia University in New York, was having highly symbolic and disturbing dreams which she discussed with her colleague, William Thetford. He advised her to write notes concerning the dreams, and she was quite surprised to find herself writing, “This is a Course in Miracles,” while perceiving a form of “dictation” from an inaudible voice. Although this was completely out of character for her, she felt destined to write this work, which is overwhelmingly Christian. As each section of the book unfolded, it was typed by William Thetford and kept completely intact. No changes were made.

First published finally in 1976, the Course teaches basically that anything that is “real” cannot be destroyed or threatened, and that nothing “unreal” actually exists. Therefore, our bodies, our lives, even the Earth, itself, are illusions based on our own personal and collective expectations and projections.

Like STAR TREK, this was new stuff—a bit hard to accept and maybe “too cerebral” to understand. The Course teaches us how to cope with our illusions, but more importantly, it brings new meaning to the biblical exhortation, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” It helps shed light on the miraculous events in Christ’s life and how we can do much greater things than he did (and remember Christ, Himself, said that). It identifies Jesus as our brother who recognized the illusion, awoke from it, and was set free. It says that we are “asleep” and “dreaming,” lost in our own created fantasy, much as we “create” our nocturnal dreams. When we realize this, or “know the truth,” we will awaken to who we really are, and be set free from these projected images.

A Course In Miracles Film Festival – Barcelona, Spain

June 10, 2009

A Course In Miracles Film Festival in Barcelona
BARCELONA, SPAIN
July 3,4,5 2009 at the
Hotel Diagonal Zero
Placa de Llevant, s/n

We Meet At Last Together At The End Of This Space Time Episode… Our solutions at this event will be particularly focused and directed to a celebration of this time and place where the miraculous event will occur. Come and experience with Master Teacher of A Course In Miracles, an inevitable decision of discovering our journey without distance in the space of an instant.

AN ANCIENT PROMISE WILL BE KEPT
An exit portal from this infinitely small maze of space and time has been opened. Remember, time lasted but an instant in your mind, with no effect upon eternity. And so is all time past, and everything exactly as it was before the way to nothingness was made. The tiny tick of time in which the first mistake was made, and all of them within that one mistake, held also the Correction for that one, and all of them that came within the first. And in that tiny instant time was gone, for that was all it ever was. What God gave answer to is answered and is gone.

Walking With Jesus – Easter Sunday

HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN IN ME!!! HAPPY EASTER….

Jesus Speaks of His Physical Resurrection
My body disappeared because I had no illusion about it. The last one had gone. It was laid in the tomb, but there was nothing left to bury. It did not disintegrate because the unreal cannot die. It merely became what it always was. And that is what “rolling the stone away” means. The body disappears, and no longer hides what lies beyond. It merely ceases to interfere with vision. To roll the stone away is to see beyond the tomb, beyond death, and to understand the body’s nothingness. What is understood as nothing must disappear.

THE DAY OF RESURRECTION
The Earthquake

And behold, there was a great, earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled away the stone, and sat upon it. His appearance was as lightning, and his raiment white as snow: and for fear of him the watchers did quake, and became as dead men.

The Empty Tomb
Now on the first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, while it was yet dark, unto the tomb, and seeth the stone taken away from the tomb, She runneth therefore, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.”
Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the tomb. And they ran both together: and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the tomb; and stooping and looking in, he seeth the linen cloths lying; yet entered he not in.
Simon Peter therefore also cometh, following him, and entered into the tomb: and he beholdeth the linen cloths lying, and the napkin, that was upon his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a place by itself. Then entered in therefore the other disciple also, who came first to the tomb, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. So the disciples went away again unto their own home.

“I am the holy Son of God Himself.”
Here is your declaration of release from bondage of the world. And here as well is all the world released. You do not see what you have done by giving to the world the role of jailer to the Son of God. What could it be but vicious and afraid, fearful of shadows, punitive and wild, lacking all reason, blind, insane and sad?

What have you done that this should be your world? What have you done that this is what you see? Deny your own identity and this is what remains. You look on chaos and proclaim it as yourself. There is no sight that fails to witness this to you. There is no sound that does not speak of frailty within you and without; no breath you draw that does not seem to bring you nearer death; no hope you hold but will dissolve in tears.

Deny your own identity and you will not escape the madness which induced this weird, unnatural and ghostly thought which mocks creation and which laughs at God. Deny your own identity and you assail the universe alone, without a friend, a tiny particle of dust against the legions of your enemies. Deny your own identity and look on evil, sin and death. And watch despair snatch from your fingers every scrap of hope, leaving you nothing but the wish to die.

Yet what is it except a game you play in which identity can be denied? You are as God created you. All else but this one thing is folly to believe. In this one thought is everything set free. In this one truth are all illusions gone. In this one fact is sinlessness proclaimed to be forever part of everything; the central core of its existence and its guarantee of immortality.

Walking With Jesus – Easter Saturday

The Dreamer Of The Dream
Suffering is an emphasis upon all that the world has done to injure YOU. Here is the world’s demented version of salvation clearly shown. Like to a dream of punishment, in which the dreamer is unconscious of what brought on the attack against himself, he sees himself attacked unjustly, and by something NOT himself. HE is the victim of this “something else,” a thing OUTSIDE himself for which he has no reason to be held responsible. He must be innocent BECAUSE he knows not what HE does, but what is done TO him. Yet is his own attack upon himself apparent still, for it is he who bears the suffering. And he can NOT escape BECAUSE its source is seen outside himself.

THE DAY OF SILENCE AND SORROW
The Watch at the Tomb

Now on the morrow, which is the day after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees were gathered together unto Pilate, saying, “Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive, ‘After three days I rise again.’ Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest haply his disciples come and steal him away, and say unto the people, ‘He is risen from the dead,’ and the last error will be worse than the first.”
Pilate said unto them, “Ye have a guard: go, make it as sure as ye can.”
So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, the guard being with them.

“It can be but my gratitude I earn.”
It is your Father’s holy Will that you complete Himself and that your Self shall be His sacred Son, forever pure as He, of love created and in love preserved, extending love, creating in its name, forever one with God and with your Self. Yet what can such a function mean within a world of envy, hatred and attack? Therefore you have a function in the world in its own terms. For who can understand a language far beyond his simple grasp?

Forgiveness represents your function here. It is not God’s creation, for it is the means by which untruth can be undone. And who would pardon Heaven? Yet on earth you need the means to let illusion go. Creation merely waits for your return to be acknowledged, not to be complete.
