The only sickness A Course in Miracles recognizes is the split mind – the mind that is divided against itself, playing out its illusory trauma on the screen of the world and the body. To believe that we are an ego is the absence of wholeness and holiness. It is the absence of health. It is the belief in scarcity. From this mistaken belief both world and body are made. We project sickness outward – bodies that get cancer and die, a world fraught with war and violence. Yet the cause of that sickness is always the decision to project fear outward rather than be responsible for it where it is – in the mind. The healing anticipated by A Course in Miracles is always directed at healing the mind which thinks it is not a part of the Mind of God. Thus, separation is a symptom of sickness that the atonement heals by reminding us our will and God’s are one.
