Life “associated with a body” is like life associated with a stretched elastic band. The struggle is to keep the tension of illusion from releasing back to its normal, relaxed state of reality. The normal state of Mind is wholly relaxed in the Stillness of Magnetic Union with Source. Electrical activity is like stretching an elastic band, and paying tribute to the tension it takes to keep an idea seeming-to-be embodied in space and time.
“All Mind is whole, and the belief that part of it is physical, or not Mind, is a fragmented or sick interpretation.” (ACIM Text)
Attaching to the physical and calling it real is an abnormal state of Mind. Non-physical awareness of wholeness is the normal state of Mind.
“Perception of the body can be unified only by one purpose. This releases the Mind from the temptation to see the body in many lights, and gives it over entirely to the One Light in which it can be really understood.” (ACIM Text)
In the state in the fire, the many lights disappeared into the normal state of Mind of non-physical awareness of union in Source. Consciousness of the tension required to “see the body in many lights” dissolved into the Pure Awareness of tension-less union with Source. The understanding was that the body in many lights had never been made real; all there ever was and could ever be, was the normal, whole state of Union in Love.
“Loss of any kind is impossible. But when you look upon a brother as a physical entity, his power and glory are “lost” to you and so are yours. You have attacked him, but you must have attacked yourself first. Do not allow him to belittle himself in your Mind, but give him freedom from his belief in littleness, and thus escape from yours.” (ACIM Text)
Sit the f*ck (the illusion of the physicality) down, shut the hell (the belief in the illusion of the physicality) up, be still and Know (that “I am” is unified in non-physical Source).
