Specialness: special love, special hate, we make everything special, don’t we! CA Brooks and Bruce Rawles talk about this ubiquitous ego tactic designed to keep us mindlessly fixated on specific idols of all kinds. We talked for almost an hour on her weekly ACIM internet radio program on 12Radio. We also refer to quotes such as “Complete abstraction is the natural condition of the mind” from Lesson 161 of the ACIM WorkBook, and how specifics … and specialness are intentional diversions from restoring our minds to this peaceful state which is our true nature. Specialness is an important theme in A Course In Miracles; here are numerous articles about it on the Foundation for A Course In Miracles website.
