Another clear 'zinger' of a message from ACIM about right mindedness (true health) and miscreation (which is what everyone is afraid of - the belief that something unlike God can be created).
Our mind is powerful beyond comprehension. Learning to direct our thinking is essential to have peace of mind and therefore stay aware of Who we truly are.
"True denial is a powerful protective device. You can and should deny any belief that error can hurt you. This kind of denial is not a concealment but a correction. Your right mind depends on it. Denial of error is a strong defense of truth, but denial of truth results in miscreation, the projections of the ego. In the service of the right mind the denial of error frees the mind, and re-establishes the freedom of the will. When the will is really free it cannot miscreate, because it recognizes only truth." (T-2.II.2.)
To practically apply this teaching, when any fear-based thoughts arise, including any body thoughts involving concern - deny that these thoughts have any power over you. See them for what they are - fear thoughts arising. And make your decision immediately to deny these thoughts are true.
Our mission is to deny the belief in an external cause in order to have our mind aligned with Truth; with the all pervasive, omniscient power of God. For many, the training happens to involve a virus in this moment - but this profound teaching is applicable always - regardless of the form the thoughts are about. Our master psychologist is teachings us to free our mind. Now is the time to dive into this 100%. Nothing less will do. Put your cape on! Our super power is forgiveness! Go for it with denying that ego thoughts have any power... and then... as gently as if blowing seeds from a dandelion... may all fear and doubt gently be absolved... resolved... dissolved... from your holy mind.
With love and blessings,
