Any problem can be resolved with a spiritual solution. One of the most intriguing passages in A Course in Miracles suggests that you don’t have a problem: you only think you do. The opening lines of the Torah, as well as Genesis in the Bible state, “God created Heaven and Earth,” and later, And all that God created was good.” If you interpret those words literally, it’s quite clear that problems are impossible. If God created everything and all that God created was good, bad does not exist. “But,” you say, “disease, disharmony, despair and so on all appear to exist and run rampant in our world.”
When we feel separated from our sacred center, it’s easy to believe so strongly in the separation that we explain any unpleasantness as a problem. In the world of Spirit, or God, problems simply don’t exist and aren’t real. When your spiritual connection is weak, you move away from the world of Spirit, and problems come from your belief in separation. Your mind creates the illusion of separateness, and your body, influenced by your ego thoughts, takes on
Our societies are the creations of our collective thoughts.
They take on the same separation- sickness, and then we have what we call social problems. All of the so-called problems, however, represent a spiritual deficit that can be remedied with spiritual solutions. Think of it this way: If you change your mind, you will solve your problem.
Can you accept the idea that it’s your belief in your separation from God that creates the attitude that you label a problem? Can you explore this idea that what you are calling problems are all simple illusions, or mistakes of your intellect? If God is everywhere, there is no place that God is not; therefore, you have God with you at all times. You may believe otherwise. It is this belief system that creates your so-called problems. If you can bring truth to the presence of these illusions, they will dissolve – just as you know that three plus three equals ten is untrue. By bringing truth to the presence of this arithmetic error, it simply dissolves.
So too will all of your beliefs that create “problems” in your mind dissolve when you bring the higher energy of truth to them. St Francis of Assisi, in his famous prayer, beseeches us to change our mind to this thought: “Where there is hatred let me sow love.”
Light always dissolves darkness. Love always nullifies hate. Spirit always cancels problems. Problems exist as beliefs of your ego mind, which is unable to conceptualize an awareness of your spiritual mind, just as dark has no concept of light.
