Welcome to Episode 003 of the Your Miraculous Life Podcast!
In this third episode, I share a passage from Chapter 17 from the Course entitled, The Two Pictures.
Here are some of the main take-a-ways from this passage:
- Every special relationship occupies our mind so much that we cannot hear the call for truth.
- The special relationship has the most imposing and deceptive frame of all the defenses the ego uses.
- Remember to look at the picture. Do not let the frame distract you. The frame is our projection on to the other person or thing — its the ego’s distortion. The picture is the reality or truth.
- Our relationship with the Divine is a reflection of our relationship to one another.
So I want you to sit back and ask yourself: How do special relationships play out in your life? How is it that your ego makes other people “special”? How have you seen this play out in the past or currently in romantic relationships? Or in friendships? Or other relationships?
Then, I also want you to commit to a daily practice for yourself to improve your relationship with Source, the Divine, God, or whatever you want to call it. This can be through daily meditation, prayer, yoga, or whatever.
In the comments below, share how special relationships play out in your life and the daily practice that you are committing yourself to (whether you already have been or you want to start).
P.S. I know there’s a lot of information that I covered in this particular episode. So if you have any questions about anything I discussed in this episode that you’d like me to clarify or elaborate more, then please comment below and let me know. I’ll be happy to answer. 🙂
