Difference Between the Ego and Holy Spirit's Projection
Project verb meaning is to extend forward or out. Project noun meaning is a plan in the mind. World means a natural grand division.
Projection, as defined above, referring to the verb, is a fundamental attribute of God, which he also gave to his Son. In this Creation, God projected his Creative Ability out of Himself toward the Souls which He created, and also imbued them with the same loving wish (or will) to create.
There is a FUNDAMENTAL error involved in confusing what has been created with what is being created. Man, insofar as the term relates to Soul, has not only been fully Created, but also been created perfect. There is no emptiness in him.
The Soul, because of its own likeness to its Creator, is creative. No Child of God is capable of losing this ability, because it is inherent in what he IS.
The difference between the ego’s use of projection and projection as the Holy Spirit uses it is very simple. The ego projects to EXCLUDE and therefore to deceive.
The Holy Spirit projects by RECOGNIZING HIMSELF in EVERY mind, and thus perceives them as ONE. Nothing conflicts in this perception, because what the Holy Spirit perceives IS the same.
Wherever He looks He sees Himself, and because He is UNITED, He offers the whole Kingdom always. This is the one message which God gave TO Him, and for which He must speak because that is what He IS.
The peace of God lies in that message, and so the peace of God lies in YOU. Taken from "A Course in Miracles" by Jesus Christ.
You Have Been Caught in a Trap
You have been caught in a trap from which you never could escape. Conflict, guilt and fear have come with you and never left your side. Each one of you has done this differently, yet each has come to the same place, the same impasse. And now it seems to each of you that there is no escape. For it is true that you cannot escape alone.
Your stories seem to differ, for they do take different forms. Yet their one content makes you brothers. Dwell not upon the differences or you are lost. It is in recognizing the common content; the common need, that you are save! Taken from "A Course in Miracles" by Jesus Christ.
