Only equals are at peace and to be equal we must look past the differences seen with the body’s eyes to this major point in a course in miracles We all have the same ego (the same fear and guilt in our mind) and that unites us. We also all have the same right mind and the same ability to choose between them. To say we are spiritually different (special) from what is actually a part of us (the same) is saying we prefer to maintain the separation from God and that is what we will actually learn and teach.
The function of the miracle is not to have us stop choosing our egos. It is to have us be aware that we are choosing the ego. Again, I can’t emphasize this enough. This is what gets almost all Course in Miracles students way off the mark (Rules for Decision, Kenneth Wapnick, underline mine).
Fragments are merely the dualistic way in which we perceive differences where there are none. Look at this quote from Kenneth Wapnick:
The Sonship [the whole] in its Oneness transcends the sum of its parts” (T-2.VII.6:3). In other words, one cannot appreciate the pure wholeness and oneness of Christ by simply adding up the billions and billions of fragments that the world thinks is the Son of God, a quantifiable entity consisting of certain amount of separated fragments. Christ in His very nature is a perfect and undivided One, as Mind, and He loses that essential characteristic which defines His Being if fragmentation of any of its forms is acknowledged as real (The Message of A Course In Miracles: Few Choose to Listen by Kenneth Wapnick, page 67, underline mine).
For this series of articles, we’ve been using spiritually special Course teachers as our example wherein they use “spiritual dress” to make themselves more special and chosen by God to do His work. This makes them different, i.e., stand out in a crowd as special from others who are their equals. In the context of this discussion, this makes fragmentation real because judgments are made about differences. Where there are differences (instead of sameness) there is no peace and so the spiritually special cannot learn nor teach peace.
The ego thrives on the comparisons of specialness. When you compare yourself with others, wherein you are important and they are not because Jesus gave you a special assignment… you see differences where there are none (because you are focused on forms which do not matter). The only way you should think of yourself as having an important function is to realize everyone else has an important function too: forgiveness (The Healing Power of Kindness, Vol. 2: Forgiving Our Limitations by Kenneth Wapnick, location 884, Kindle, underline mine).
