I was walking to Caravaca (Region Murcia, southern Spain) where the release of all carma or guilt is overed this year (like every 7th year). This is a great opportunity to make peace with one self. The castle where the church with the reliquie of the holy Cross is, was built by the Knights Templar.
Today the lines are active, rebalancing the energies of the land. The frequencies are rising. Dark forces will be cast off the planet when we are sure we don´t want them anymore. We can still extend our desires, but it is important that we give all of them into God´s hands. Then we are free to move on and enjoy whatever enters our way.

. What are Miracles?
In the Course, the word “miracle” has a special meaning. The central idea is that there is no order in miracles. If a miracle should be possible at all, then it can change all things, how big or difficult they may look like. It’s not about to change the world according to our own desires. Miracles, as understood in the Course, overcome illusions and bring us therefore closer to reality; that´s why our miracles are not important in themselves. It is important, however, to recognize their source, which is far beyond any evaluation. Therefore, miracles are here not considered to be something special, they are, on the contrary, a natural process, because they represent reality within a world of illusions. They are expressions of a love that connects us all.
Miracles are an expression of life itself, as well as the voice that inspires them. As we said, miracles become the voice of the Holy Spirit and a personal guide of the student of the Course. The aim of the Course is an ongoing listening to this inner voice and thus the ability to be truly helpful.
Miracles should not be subject to conscious control. They must involuntarily since they follow a plan that we can not know on earth, due to the limitations we have imposed unto ourselves in this world. Miracles are the right of all people, for they help to cure a deficiency under which almost all suffer. They bring the giver and the receiver more love. They should not be used as a spectacle. They have no place at fairs, because they are played out in the inconspicuous, on an interpersonal level, in the world of feelings and thoughts. Nevertheless, prayers are important for miracles.
We have to ask for miracles, for they represent a communication between heaven and earth. They change time by shortening the timeline that extends from now until the end of this space-time continuum. In other words, with the help of miracles that are unlimited in numbers, we can return to heaven faster. They free us of the past and free our mind for the future. They testify to the truth. It does need faith to let them happen. Each day should be spent with miracles. They are part of the curriculum. They shift the awareness from the visible to the invisible and show the unreality of the physical plane. This makes them heal. They provide a service; they are an act of love and reassure donors and the recipient of the intrinsic value they both have in the eyes of God.
Miracles can unite the mind of a whole group of people with God. They show that the mind is the medium of truth and not the body. Miracles do need forgiveness. Without forgiveness they can not happen. Miracles create fear in those who are afraid of the light, because they believe to be guilty. Only when they realize they’re innocent, can they let go of their fears of the light and surrender to it. Miracles give us the opportunity to heal, because we have introduced the idea of disease into our perception.
Quotes out of: The Course Of Miracles:
I am standing on the edge, still waiting for a sign to go further. After sunrise i can hear nothing strange. The light changes everything. But what happened to this forest in the night? Is danger there, or anything of value? Maybe this is a normal forest and i just lose my mind. Only in the night sometimes i hear strange things. Are these intruders or inhabitants we have overlooked for so long? Shall i follow the golden lines or the ones of iron? I still have my sword, from ancestors of Austria´s high mountains. But this sword is good for nothing here. It´s just a mad man´s toy. I felt in love with past events, long gone for centuries. Until this voices in the night were calling me to wake again, to come back to where i am standing now.
Jesus believed in an imminent radical change of the world by God’s direct intervention and the establishment of his rule, like many other people did in his time, for example, the Essenes and the Zealots.
He denounced the injustice of the system, without calling for revolution. For him, all true change was caused by God. The individual should get ready for conversion and renewal in preparation of this happening. This consists in renouncing the ego and in trusting the spirit of God, who had promised to lead all followers home.
History has shown why Jesus thought as he did. The Zealots, the dagger men, tried to end the domination of the infidels by war. They instigated the first major Jewish revolt against the Romans in 66 AD, which led to the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem by Titus in 70 AD and the loss of over one million lives. This downfall was prophesied by Jesus and was experienced by people and disciples who had still known him. A few decades later, another Jewish revolt broke out in North Africa and Cyprus, also with hundreds of thousands dead and massacres on both sides. The last major battle of the Jews in Roman Palestine, called after their leader Bar Kochba Revolt, also ended in defeat and ended in the expulsion of the remaining Jewish population of the province of Palestine.
Since Jesus did not support the fight against the Romans, he was sitting between all chairs. He probably incurred the hatred of the nationalist zealots, who preferred to see him in their ranks as a charismatic speaker.
Jesus did not foster any retreat from the world as the Essenes did. They divided the world into light and darkness, seeing themselves clearly as the children of light.
But Jesus taught and lived in the midst of the world and did not hesitate to contact the Romans, sinners or collaborators, such as he hated tax collectors. Furthermore, he did not teach any asceticism. He drank wine and ate meat and joined the festivities and meals of the rich with his entourage.
Jesus, however, was anything but a son of the middle class. He seems to resemble more of a modern hippie. He did not work, was fed by his followers, and did not bother about religious laws. As we already said, Jesus did not teach a compromise when it came to the real things like God, as the Pharisees did in his opinion. They believed that they could accumulate merit before God and divide their loyalties between God and the secular authorities.
Jesus did not believe in any religion of laws like today´s Orthodox Judaism, Islam and Hinduism still are. God was a living reality for him, whose claim to the people could not be limited by anything.
So what after all of these accruals made Jesus special? He preached the kingdom of God. It was something mysterious, luminous and new, that was touched by the prophets of Israel only a few times over the centuries. This Reign of God whose total breakthrough was imminent in the near future, was already palpable in his own presence and that was the one thing that made Jesus really unique. The so-called “eschatological expectation” he shared with many of his contemporaries, as we said, particularly the religious zealots who expected not only the salvation of the world, was also the divine punishment for the unbelievers.
There was something that went far beyond this expectation. It was the teaching of the faith in God in all aspects of life, a life out of the uncertainty of the moment. This life surrendered itself to God moment by moment by its defenselessness. It gave him the room for his guidance and opportunity to bless one with miracles.
Jesus was certain that God would help the people who depended on him only. He pulled God closer to the people, made him a confidant again, a privilege of a few prophets until then. It is sure that he referred to himself not as the Son of God or the Messiah. The confession of being the Son of God was revered to him in the light of the post-Easter experience. But on the other hand, Jesus spoke during his teaching period with such an inner authority, that it seemed to indicate that he knew the will of God exactly as it was. The healings he accomplished seemed to prove also that his power and his claim were justified. They were not just empty words. The title of the ‘Savior’ and ‘Christ’ was awarded him by the post-Easter community therefore on a twofold basis; his life on earth being completely unique and his resurrection, which was, attested by many, the basis for the Christian faith and all the writings of the New Testament.
Later, the threat of hell was put into Jesus’ mouth, which has terrified a whole Christian era. In the Old Testament, such a gloomy outlook did not exist, as there had not been any belief in after-life at that time. But could Jesus really threaten people with hell and speak of a loving Father in Heaven? If these threats should make any sense within the context of his doctrine of God’s love, it could only mean that by denying the voice of the Holy Spirit, one will stay out of heaven. Being caught in the wheel of rebirth was called hell by the knowing. In summary, we can say that Jesus spoke not about the things we can see with our eyes. He spoke of a sphere of consciousness in which an unconditional love exists, which has no opposite because it is all encompassing. This is difficult to understand on earth, because all earthly laws and habits are pointing in the opposite direction.
But for Jesus this kind of love made perfect sense, because only in it he saw a way out of bondage and the suffering in the world. He had become a little familiar with his earthly life and his intensions. We can see what a genius had came to earth by him with the Course. This work empowers everyone with the tools for his own inner growth.
There were some outstanding ambassadors and successors of the teachings of Jesus, such as Meister Eckhart in the 13th Century, John of the Cross in the 16th Century and Mary Baker Eddy in the 19th Century. But now we have a document in hand, we thought was lost forever, a book in which Jesus speaks to our time. This could be the most important message to humanity since the New Testament. Are we ready for it?
