I want to thank Jason, and everyone at the Monastery again for welcoming me with such openness. I’m still amazed that I was granted this opportunity to see shining examples of the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and for the first time in a long while, I do not feel alone.

Part of me wanted to stay longer, but beneath that desire was the thought that I would be doing so for the wrong reason; as a way to avoid my problems. The stronger feeling was, and is, that my travels will continue.

Before I left, Jason asked if I had had any insights acim. What I’m about to share was not yet clear at that time; only on the drive away did it coalesce.

That morning, several lines from a Vance Joy song kept running through my head, “I never should have told you, never should have let you see inside. Don’t want it troubling your mind, won’t you let it be?” This confused me as I could not think of anything that I had said that I felt regret for.

Eventually, the phrase, “don’t want it troubling your mind” stood out. This reminded me that the most prominent fear I had in coming to the Monastery was that I would somehow interfere with its residents’ peace of mind, simply by my presence alone. This belief that I could negatively affect other people’s state of mind has been with me for many years, and has colored many of my past experiences and relationships.

This fear left my awareness soon after I arrived. On the drive away it rose again, but I remembered David saying in one of his videos that minds cannot attack. I cried and laughed, and now feel as if the belief is being (has been?) released.

There are other things that happened that felt important, but I can’t think of them right now.

While the majority of us have now been mentioned to trust that prayer requires pleading to Lord to simply help, save yourself, fix problems and provide people things nowadays, that’s not true prayer or its purpose. Prayer in A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is quite different and very beautiful. Higher than a song, it’s wondrous trade of Love and thanks between God and His Designs that employs the forgiveness process to fix your head before the Prayer Music is all that remains. It’s the admission house so understanding correct prayer, and forgiveness, may be worth the amount of time in retraining the mind.

Prayer is changing (sharing) a Track of Love and Development or judgments of the pride predicated on what you require (agree with) in the mind. There is no other way. In the Course, your brain (content) is separate between God and the vanity; and you are picking constantly with an area as reason for effect.

Types (all points of the world) are miscreations highlighting the ego’s judgmental believed system. We’ve managed to get up (miscreated that world) and may give it up any time by improving the mind (forgiveness). True prayer needs that correction of the mind as God has nothing regarding forms.

What Prayer is Not:

Since you are always choosing, that which you ask for when you hope is what counts. When you plead in prayer to own Lord fix a questionnaire trouble with yet another form problem, you’re asking the vanity mind for support (not God). These types and needs are regarded more important than God’s Enjoy that will stay concealed to their education you select the illusion.

All external points (forms) are needs. Different brands are needs, desires, position, problems, nausea, human enjoy (special relationships), gifts and targets in this world, etc. They are what you choose as replacements for God’s Enjoy and the confidence may pose the purpose of prayer by with them to help expand the illusion. Therefore, prayer can not be about “forms” or “needs” in just about any way.
