While all miracles are born from healing the cause which is our perception, they can extend to the level of effect (form) as well. They can do so because both cause and effect remain together in our mind and cannot be separate. They can certainly appear to be separate but only in our fear-based perception. Usually though, we will not witness a miracle at the form level if we are still afraid of it.
Fear of the miracle, especially of physical miracles, is the unconscious fear of God’s Love that runs the entire ego thought system. Translated to a practical level, it is the unconscious fear of the power within our Holy Self as God’s extension. To recognize and embody this One Power has its price. In a nutshell it is forfeiting our personal will to be separate and to suffer. I am finding that it is nothing less than the total relinquishment of the self and the world as I knew them including all the laws I have come to believe both sustain and attack us and our world.
In my experience, as we willingly exhume our unconscious beliefs and release them to Spirit, our trust in the One Power of God’s Love increases. As it does so, we no longer block from fear, the miracle’s efficacy. We allow the miracle to naturally translate from cause to the effect level. This is when we begin to witness more miracles as they translate to the effect level in our life. I really didn’t embrace this level of Jesus’ deeper teachings until fairly recently so I am just beginning to trust in the consistency of the Atonement, the miracle that undoes fear in the mind.

Here in the ego’s dream we are so accustomed to believing that God’s Will is inconsistent. Sometimes we heal and sometimes we don’t. If we don’t heal then we say it must be God’s Will, a lesson for us to learn. On the contrary, God’s Will is healing! And healing is consistent! When we don’t heal it’s because we still retain some unforgiveness that we are not yet prepared to surrender.
God is infinite healing, joy, Love and abundance. It is the unconscious ego that projects its fearful image onto God along with its own pathetic inconsistency. The ego is the exact opposite of trust. So there is no way it can trust Spirit, especially in healing. That is why many of us feel so much safer to trust in what Jesus refers to as “magic”, eg. the medical model, supplements, nutrition, diet, and alternative medicine, etc.
To heal the real cause of any perceived problem I must have no personal agenda. It helps to remember that while it appears that I am suffering, I have done this thing to myself. It is important to check my priority first. If I prioritize a physical change in my body, another or a situation then I must believe the problem is real. And this is what the ego wants. When we believe it’s real we cannot forgive it. The ego is obsessed with remedying effects so as we never go within to heal the true and single cause which is unconscious guilt as self-attack in our mind.
To truly heal we must be willing to offer Spirit our wrong perception of the problem. There is never any problem other than one. And that is that we are using our body, another, the past or the world to attack ourselves in order to separate from God’s Love as our Holy Self. That’s it. Short and to the point. Only one problem. And there is only one remedy regardless of the seeming hierarchy of illusions that face us. When we know this and practice it, is when we will come to witness Jesus’ number one Miracle Principle that indeed, “There is no order of difficulty in miracles.”
“The secret of salvation is but this: that you are doing this unto yourself. No matter what the form of the attack, this still is true. Whoever takes the role of enemy and of attacker, still is this the truth. Whatever seems to be the cause of any pain and suffering you feel, this is still true. For you would not react at all to figures in a dream you knew that you were dreaming. Let them be as hateful and as vicious as they may, they could have no effect on you unless you failed to recognize it is your dream.” T-27.VIII.10.
“This single lesson learned will set you free from suffering, whatever form it takes. The Holy Spirit will repeat this one inclusive lesson of deliverance until it has been learned, regardless of the form of suffering that brings you pain. Whatever hurt you bring to Him He will make answer with this very simple truth. For this one answer takes away the cause of every form of sorrow and of pain. The form affects His answer not at all, for He would teach you but the single cause of all of them, no matter what their form. And you will understand that miracles reflect the simple statement, “[I] have done this thing, and it is this I would undo.”” T-27.VIII.11.
To heal, I must desire to heal my perception over and above anything else. And if there is resentment with another then I must have a desire to close this gap between myself and another. To share an example of a physical miracle, I found myself feeling financially challenged, which is becoming increasingly less real to me these days. In 2012, I began renting a small apartment in a secluded valley in Sedona, Arizona. My hidden cave afforded me solitude and quiet to finish writing this book, The End of Death. And as our fledgling nonprofit, Take Me to Truth Inc., could not afford to pay me an income as yet, I was wondering how I would pay the rent.
I decided to be totally transparent with the landlady, explaining that I could only pay $900 instead of the agreed rent being $1200 (for 2 months). She was nice enough and agreed but with a warning never to do this again. I could sense her disappointment and resentment. And this left me feeling guilty and I noticed that I tried to avoid her over the next few days. So I decided to take this lack of peace to Spirit to surrender in exchange for the miracle. And I wholeheartedly accepted the Atonement. I recall the Holy Instant in which all I genuinely desired was to close the fearful and guilty gap that seemed to dwell between this landlady and myself.
I then had to wait to see how Spirit would heal this dilemma. But how? Okay, I remembered that I had already given this to Spirit. And that I had already accepted Atonement, the miracle. Now all I needed to do was trust…implicitly.
When rent day arrived I withdrew exactly $900 from my account and retained the receipt. When I met with the landlady I handed her the $900 cash and sincerely apologized for disappointing her. I watched her as she counted the cash in $100 bundles. And then to my absolute surprise, a joyous burst of delight lit up her face. Suddenly she said, “Thank you! There is $1200 cash here, exactly what I wanted in the first place! Are you sure you don’t need some of this returned?” I was in shock. I asked her to count again. There couldn’t possibly be $1200 because I only withdrew $900 and had the receipt to prove it. She recounted and yes, it was true. There in cold hard cash was what she had originally wanted, all $1200!
What happened? See how the ego immediately tries to censor this? It tries to justify it as a mistake and attempts to disprove the miracle because it’s obsessed with a need to conform to its rigid laws of ego-reality. When the miracle pierces and shatters the laws of this world’s paradigm, the ego’s foundation is seriously shaken to the core. And that is exactly what Jesus did when he healed the sick and raised the dead 2,000 years ago. I’m learning that miracles certainly do not conform to the laws of this paradigm…they prove the ego’s laws are just not real; that the separation is indeed, without effects.
As I look back I see the exact Holy Instant where the miracle was accepted. It was when I wholeheartedly desired to close that awkward gap that appeared between the landlady and myself. Her particular idol at that time was receiving the full $1200. And while I could not imagine how I could meet her needs, Spirit could. I had an instant where I did not see her interests (needs) as different from my own. And that was where the miracle came in.
“A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one. His qualifications consist solely in this; somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else’s.” M-1.1:1-2
The formula for the miracle always involves a pure intent to heal the seeming gap between our self and God. The gap may appear to manifest between us and another. It can also appear between us and the body or a seeming situation. However it is never about healing what is not really there, eg. sickness, lack, pain, loss, etc. If I seem to see sickness in my body, in another’s body or scarcity in my life or another’s, then my singular intent is to heal the gap that I imagined exists between myself and God within.
There is never any other problem regardless of where I seem to see a problem. The cause of what I seem to perceive as a problem, is always the gap I allowed to come between me and my Holy Self; and therefore will manifest between me and the body, others and the world. My rent miracle occurred because I sincerely desired to bridge the gap between myself and the landlady. For an instant I forgot my own needs and joined with hers, for an instant I perceived her needs as not separate from my own. And in that instant I was reunited with God as my Holy Self. And another great chunk of unconscious guilt just fell away.
