Right Identification and Reinterpretation

Never forget that this life of yours is God, and if it appears to you to be young or old, sick or well, evil or good, that is just god appearing to you, but incorrectly interpreted by you, and you are the one who must reinterpret the scene. There is no use going about saying, “Oh, I know there is no old age, sickness, or evil in heaven, but what about earth?” heaven and earth are not two different places; heaven and earth are one and the same: Earth is our mortal concept of heaven, and heaven is our real awareness of earth. In other words, heaven is the earth correctly understood.

Now follow this carefully. Here are two important points: right identification which means God appearing as individual life, the One appearing as many, or God, Life, appearing as individual being; and reinterpretation, which means looking at sick, sinning, dying humanity, and translating that appearance through the realization that, inasmuch as God is all, this is part of the allness of God which is being mis-seen coming as a false suggestion, which must be reinterpreted.

These two important points you must carry with you from morning to night and night to morning—right identification and reinterpretation. Reinterpret everything you see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. Reinterpret it! Translate it into its original state which is Godhood. Practice right identification. Know that all that appears to you is God appearing—God appearing as individual man, woman, or child; God appearing as plant, animal, or crops.

What the human eyes sees is the misconception of that divine idea. What the human eye sees or what the human ear hears is the false picture presented by this thing called hypnotism or suggestion, the same illusion that makes the tracks come together in the distance or the sky sit on the mountains. It makes no difference what name or term you use for error. Only be sure that you are not trying to be so absolute that you are unwilling to reinterpret what is appearing to you in the human scene.

For the serious student, the most important chapter in The Infinite Way is “The New Horizon,” because in it can be found the explanation of the reinterpretation of what you behold. In other words, this chapter explains clearly that the entire human picture is mesmeric suggestion, and it is this suggestion of a selfhood apart from God that you are called upon to reinterpret.

Joel Goldmith

Se de algun modo, que Jesus usó la mente de este Maestro para configurar Un Curso de Milagros. Podria decir que Joel Goldsmith ( El Camino Infinito) es un puro cristiano advaita. Si estas definiciones me son permitidas a estas alturas. A las alturas de él, me refiero. Cuando un cristiano alcanza el Christo, esto es, se convierte en El, deja de ser cristiano, como cuando un budista se realiza en el Buddha. Porque el Camino se ha recorrido en todo su largo con corazón, uno se convierte en el Camino, la Verdad y la Vida, y no hay descripcion que pueda alcanzarte, no hay nombre que pueda definirte.
