This one is about relationships
Guess what?! This one is about relationships. Let's
get rid of all the mistaken ideas we have about what
relationships are and what they are for! Let's release
all our judgments about whether they serve your
'spiritual' purpose or fit your self-assigned
spiritual identity. Let's get to the nitty gritty of
it as they say. Let us recognize that we are merely
terrified of the Love of God for us. Let us see that
sharing our new purpose of awakening and
self-recognition with our brother is the most fearful
thing we could think of performing. Let's get over
this strong ego defense against the Love that God has
for us and all the eternal glorious gifts he holds in
store. He knows we are worthy of these gifts.
Let us not deny our creations which truly belong to us
and are actually assigned to us and have become our
responsibility, to watch over and care for. Our
precious God given brother offers us all learning
situations and all irreplacable moments for
revolutionary self-forgiveness.

Please during the preparation for this week, don't
think you know anything about relationships. Open
yourself for a whole new revelatory experience of what
a relationship really is and the unimaginable purpose
it serves within God's plan for your salvation. Give
up your illusions and fantasies about what you could
be if only he or she...
How happy you would be if he hadn't or if she would...
Find yourself with the one you are with. Enable every
situation to be one of perfect holiness and full
purpose. Go where it is uncomfortable to go and let
the change occur. Accept the Holy Spirit's purpose for
your relationship and all your relationships, which
directly and ultimately reflect your most original and
real relationship between yourself and your Creator.

You should definitely have fun with this week's
assignment. There is a lot to read in our Course about
this subject and it is really incredible to find what
Jesus says on the topic. That it may blow your mind.

Real Relationships
Time to Teach
You have been called, together with your brother, to the most holy function this world contains. It is the only one that has no limits, and reaches out to every broken fragment of the Sonship with healing and uniting comfort. This is offered you, in your holy relationship. Accept it here, and you will give as you have accepted. The peace of God is given you with the glowing purpose in which you join with your brother. The holy light that brought you and him together must extend, as you accepted it.
