“Thank you so much! I just watched lesson 3, and you and Coreen together are the most powerful team and amazing teachers!!! You are bringing these lessons to a whole new level.

Alexander
“After having done this “Fear of God” Exercise, I’m more than shocked! I’m almost speechless about the atrocity I had “unconsciously” believed to be “true” about WHAT it means “TRULY”, to do “God’s will” … I see now that God has nothing to do with sacrifice, pain, loss or death!” - Friedrich
"I really thank you for offering your own examples and speaking about how sickness is woven into these lessons, it really makes it so much more understandable with real everyday circumstances that we all are dealing with. “… you've saved so much time, maybe like years of struggling like most have gone through in the beginning. You really are speeding up time by having learned these lessons so well and by being able to get it across to the masses so effortlessly. Blessings and thank you from the collective! ♥" - V. Justice
Holy Relationship Journey (HRJ)
Why Holy Relationship to Awaken from the Dream?
The Take Me Truth family members are learning about Holy Relationship and we have written about it many times in our newsletters. This month we are simply offering the video from Nouk and Coreen about why Holy Relationship is so important. And we have a new teaching from Daniel Boissevain about how to communicate with a partner who is not necessarily using the Seven Keys of Authentic Communication. To see articles about the Holy Relationship Journey from December's newsletter, see below:
Although it is not required, it is highly recommended to experience the Total Transformation Course (TTC) in order to get a better understanding of the Holy Relationship Journey (HRJ), as the TTC provides us the necessary tools and practical experience which we don't really receive in "self-study" alone. The benefits of joining with mighty companions increases our trust to truly “live” A Course in Miracles.
The Light That Pierces the Darkness
Latest excerpt from The End of Death, Vol. III by Nouk Sanchez:
"Recently, when I awoke from a deep sleep, I was aware that I had been learning something during the night. As my conscious awareness rose from its sleeping state, I heard a voice. It said, “You have asked how to revoke your belief in the body and its five senses; how to reverse its seeming authority over your mind.” There was a pause as I recognized this voice to be the voice of Jesus in my mind. He then uttered a single statement, “Awareness of dreaming is your healing.” As I began to ponder this, I soon recalled more of what had been revealed to me during the night.
“Awareness of dreaming is the real function of God's teachers.” M-12.6:6 “Illusion recognized must disappear.” W-187.7:1
While dreaming that night, I saw and experienced that “I” was not in the body, but was the conscious awareness behind it. I was able to recognize that the body was actually a moment-to-moment image that was flashing in and out …"
What does it mean to be a Teacher of God? Are the miraculous healings that Jesus did 2000 years ago possible today? If someone came to you seeking help through prayer for a serious disease, would you know how to respond? If the world as we see and experience it is not Reality, is there a way to experience the Truth instead?
A concise, yet in-depth teaching on what it means to be a Teacher of God and how to extend the works that Jesus performed 2000 years ago has been given to us in the Manual for Teachers, an accompaniment to A Course in Miracles. The depth and significance of the messages given by Jesus within the Manual are often underestimated or simply not recognized. A quick perusal of these teachings will not reveal their full impact nor the healing ability they confer upon any honest student/teacher of God. In our ACIM focused global community we've found that Spirit comes through all mighty companions, especially in our online classes and makes the teachings come alive in comparison to trying to gain from them in isolation at an intellectual level. Come join Nouk and Coreen as they unpack the deeper teachings, which are nestled holographically, within this indispensable Manual.
NOTE: We estimate this online healing experience to be approximately 12 weeks long which started on February 4, 2021. We will meet each Thursday, 6:00 – 8:00 pm MST USA, 1:00 - 3:00 am UTC.
For those of you who are unable to join in the zoom room, please view the replay sessions.
The Total Transformation Course (TTC) is an awesome year-long journey with mighty companions! We dive into the deeper teachings of ACIM and The End of Death. We'll be using videos, audios, blogs, illuminating homework, and the key ingredient: sharing/joining in Holy Relationship with each other. Life-transforming!
All illusion is gone,
swept away in the tide
of this great Love.
The Atonement breathes me
and I chant resurrection’s song
for I have seen the face of God

The Scarcity Fallacy
by Sandy Newell
I’ve been thinking of the concept of “sacrifice” lately. In contemplating a move away from my family to a place where my housemates will be walking this path with me, I realize I am scared. As much as I think I want this, I ask do I really? I recognize I will be in a place without my husband and my adult son. I will be in a new bed without that warm body next to me. I will no longer be the “mother” and “wife” who makes a nice dinner almost every night. The labels I have attached to myself will fall away. There will be no wifey behavior, no mothering. And what about all the comforts of home? What about that 60-inch high definition television I watch every day from that comfy lounge chair that has a cup holder and a USB cord for my phone. I could not be more comfortable anywhere else. I have all that I think I need to exist in this dream.
When I turn to The Course, I find Miracle Principle #39 (COA page 29):
39. The miracle dissolves error because the spiritual eye identifies error as false, or unreal. This is the same as saying that by seeing light, darkness automatically disappears.
Darkness is lack of light. It does not have unique properties of its own. It is an example of the scarcity fallacy, from which only error can proceed.<79> Truth is always abundant. Scarcity leads to overeating and other false drives. Abundance eliminates these. Those who perceive and acknowledge that they have everything have no need for driven behavior of any kind.
Footnote 79: The “scarcity fallacy” is the idea that we are lacking [inside]. We try to fill this lack with things from the outside, such as food. Scarcity here, then does not refer to lack of material prosperity, but rather to the inner emptiness that fuels the search for outer prosperity.
Wow, here’s a new one for me, The Scarcity Fallacy! Okay, so this applies to me with respect to the overeating behavior. And it can apply to anyone with any addiction to drugs, alcohol, shopping, etc. But does it also apply to all these material things I think I need to be comfortable?
Well, I believe it does. When we have the Love of God in our minds and we share our mind with God, what more could we want? We know that God’s Will is that we have abundance and that we be happy, healthy, and comfortable! All these external things that bring me joy will be replaced with the ultimate joy of God’s Love. And walking this path with others 24/7 will accelerate the journey to that Love.
Now, I am not saying that everyone who walks this path should move away from their families. This idea only applies to me and my family is supportive. I am so blessed and grateful they have not taken on the “victim” mentality that they are losing a wife and a mother. I will have two homes, the one with my husband and son and the one with my spiritual family. And now what I was thinking would be a sacrifice has turned into a huge blessing of two homes filled with beings that love me. I am grateful.
A Quote from A Course in Miracles
"Peace will be yours, because His peace still flows to you from Him Whose Will is peace. You have it now. The Holy Spirit will teach you how to use it, and by extending it, to learn that it is in you." ACIM (FIP), T-13, XI, 8:4-6
A Story About Stuff
Our dear sister, Aggie, had this story come to her mind and she has agreed to share it:
We all need to cross over from one side of the canyon to the other. There's a bridge but it's not very wide and not very thick. We all come to the bridge we all say we want to cross. There's an old man sitting by the bridge on a rock. He's peeling an apple, enjoying the sun. As each of us arrives, he welcomes us. He takes a look at us and all the stuff we have with us (like those comedy movies where the tourists have 19 suitcases and 25 carry-ons slung around their necks, tennis rackets, binoculars, on and on) and he tells us "You'll never make it across with all that stuff, the bridge won't take it. You'll have to get rid of it. There's just enough tension to take just you, yourself across. And you have to go by yourself. No one else can go with you."
Well, we begin to talk to ourselves, telling ourselves what we think we can leave, what we can't bear the thought of leaving. We compare ourselves to others that show up. Who has more, who has less? We begin to pester the old man asking if we just leave the suitcases but take the carry-ons, would that work? What if we shift our packages all to one side? What if I carry them on my head? Is there some other way to get my stuff across if not on this bridge? But every time the old man says the same thing, "Just you yourself, that's all."
People congregate on the edge of the canyon, right next to the bridge. They build cities, organizations whose job it is to figure out how to get across the canyon with all their stuff. They stay there for centuries.
One day a man is attacked by robbers... they take everything he had, EVERYTHING, beaten and bleeding he crawls to the old man and says, "What am I to do?" The old man smiles and says, "Finally, one that can cross."
