In 1992, two beings did actually Gary Renard, told him these were ascended masters, and, over an amount of years, gave him their interpretation of A Course in Miracles, later to be published in his book The Disappearance of the Universe. The Course is really a profound work, almost 1,300 pages, poetically expressed and difficult to understand, that has been spiritually dictated by Jesus to a psychologist, Helen Schucman. It enables someone who studies and practices its teachings and mental exercises to gradually get rid of the ego.
In spiritual teachings, the ego is one’s false sense of identity, of who and what one really is. It is similar to an accumulation related thoughts that arises from and includes the basic, underlying believed that we are separate from God. It keeps one oblivious of the truth that they’re standing in the current presence of God. It causes us to believe we are limited, mortal beings, as opposed to unlimited, eternal Spirit, one with God.
From the ego arise guilt, fear, attachment to your body, selfishness and suffering. God and our true identity, the immortal Self, are blocked from our awareness. The purpose of the Course is always to dissolve the ego and its false ideas so that people can directly experience God, God’s extension as Spirit (also spoken of whilst the collective Son, the Self, or Christ), and Heaven. The Course contains many powerful declarations about the nature of God, Spirit, and their creations, and the reality that the seemingly separate Sons of God are divine, created in the image and likeness of God. These declarations help to dissolve the ego and its illusions and lead us toward direct familiarity with our reality as Spirit.
In the Course, Jesus speaks of God to be transcendental, beyond form and duality, in other words, beyond the planet, or universe, once we perceive it a course in miracles lessons online. To be able to dispel our illusions and heal our minds, God created the Holy Spirit to work with us on the planet, guiding and inspiring us through the “inner voice” and through divine messengers. The Holy Spirit leads us out of darkness in to the light and love of the Christ. When all our illusions are gone, we are filed with love and light, and realize our eternal oneness with God.
The Course teaches that the planet isn’t real. This is sensible if we consider “reality” in terms of the glorious, transcendental reality of God whilst the Absolute, beyond form and duality. This kind of the reality is different from the truth we ascribe to the planet since it is knowledgeable about the physical senses, brain, and ordinary thought processes. Truly enlightened beings, who through oneness with the Christ Mind are able to feel the blissful, eternal reality of God, Spirit, and Heaven, teach that the planet, as seen with the body’s eyes and the thoughts of the ego, is an illusion, although a number of them talk about it as having existence. By this they show that the illusion of it exists.
Arten and Pursah – the two beings who interpreted the Course for The Disappearance of the Universe – claim that, prior to the illusion of the planet arose, there clearly was only God and the Christ Mind (a glorious extension of God, wholly identified with God, Its Creator). Then, a tiny facet of the Christ Mind wondered what it could be prefer to be alone, in other words, independent of the rest of Spirit. From the creative power of this thought arose the ego and the actual experience of being separate from God. They’re going on to express that this tiny facet of the Christ Mind came to just accept the ego within itself and the ego’s thoughts as its own. Next, feeling guilt for having separated itself from God, it made the universe and bodies as a “hiding place” to flee imagined punishment for what it’d done, and, dividing itself into many individual minds, it entered these bodies. Since these were beneath the influence of the ego’s physically oriented, false concepts, these minds had lost their awareness to be one using their Creator and, thus, identified themselves with the physical body and its limitations. In accordance with Arten and Pursah, this is how humanity arrived to being. The whole scenario (Disappearance, Chapter 4) took devote thought only – not the truth is, as the reality is understood in the context of the Course – hence it is an illusion.
Arten and Pursah’s teachings about why and how the universe and human bodies were made are not within the Course. The Course says that the Sons of God made a world of their very own imagining, but doesn’t give any facts about the sequence of events or try to place into words the nature of the “substance” that the planet was made. However, many enlightened masters have taught that the universe and bodies were developed by God or an facet of God and infused with Spirit, and that humans, or at the very least most of them, having been given the gift of free will to believe and act because they chose, imagined themselves as separate from each other and God, and fell from grace. Some sacred writings mention that God continues to be creating and explain the nature of the Fall. Though different masters describe the Creation from different perspectives, they all concur with the teaching of the Course that the planet is unreal, in the sense that people perceive it in terms of dualities (opposites), relativity and change. From their very own, personal experience during exalted states of awareness, they’re knowledgeable about the glorious, eternal, unchanging reality of God, Spirit, and the greatest heaven – the Heaven spoken of in the Course – and they teach that, in contrast, the planet, once we experience it, is an illusion and not real. They generally talk about it as a cosmic movie or dream, projected onto the screen of human consciousness, that is unlike God, Spirit, or the greatest heaven, or even the divine light that is the substance of this cosmic dream. In addition, each person’s experience of the planet is subjective, colored by the nature and content of that person’s mind. Even time is an illusion, for, as Jesus and the masters tell us, only the eternal present is real.
