The Healing Project: The Holy Instant

Perfect communication occurs in the “holy instant.” It is the moment in which you give and receive communication that is open and honest.

The author of A Course in Miracles, Helen Cohn Schucman, born Helen Dora Cohn on July 14, 1909, was an American clinical psychologist, research psychologist, and a professor of medical psychology at Columbia University in New York from 1958 until her retirement in 1976. She died on February 9, 1981 of pancreatic cancer.

Her gift to the world was to produce a work whose main focus was to teach restorative healing through forgiveness and the releasing of fear. She emphasizes the need to distinguish between the real and the unreal. Truth and falsehoods.

According to the text, “all relationships are blessed in the holy instant.”

By creating a consciousness rooted in Love, the soul can find its way back home.

She writes:

“The unforgiven is a voice that calls from out a past forevermore gone by. And, everything that points to it as real is but a with that what is gone could be made real again and seen as here and now, in place of what is really now and here…Do you want that fearful instant kept?...”

When we gaze upon the past, conjuring the ghosts of “what-ifs,” we cannot enjoy the infinite NOW.

Dreams of healing become healing dreams. Miracles are the dreamer’s alternative.

The practice of forgiveness is the key to the heart of those who cannot perceive the value of such an act. Forgiveness is freedom.

By seeking one’s own truth the ability to focus on the beauty of the moment becomes the beacon of Light that spells salvation.

Salvation is peace and joy.
