Merry Christmas. May the blessings of the Holy Ghost be with each other.

@chezurl1983
Same to you! Also, can you understand Mandarin Chinese?

@voidspace
I know there are four intonations in Chinese.
It seems easier than the Japanese my mother was learning.
More than that, you guys from English-speaking countries act as if you recognize that English is the universal standard and that English is the world standard.
I can't help looking at it strangely. You are not the ancestors of mankind.

@chezurl1983

I think Chinese is easier to learn than Japanese - so I've heard.

It's true that the English are lazy about learning foreign languages.

Do you speak anything other than Japanese?

@voidspace

As you can see, I can only understand English word by word and read and speak with intuition. (What really envies you in English-speaking countries is that you can read ACIM and Dr. David R. Hawkins' veritable treasure trove of texts without leaving the essence behind!😥 )

Many of the Japanese people around me can understand English to such a fine nuances that can read a dissertation🤔

@chezurl1983

Rather than extensive reading, maybe internaizing the core principles and a few of the early lessons?

@voidspace
Does it mean, for example, to practice the teachings stated at the beginning such as "give up the principles of lower consciousness for the principles of higher consciousness (POWER VS. FROCE)"?

@chezurl1983
I meant as found in ACIM

I see! I understand very well. When I see Tim's conversation at the mastodon, there are many conversations about the practice of ACIM and living with ACIM.
It may be time for me to put ACIM back into practice, as today is also the holy Christian season.
Coincidences don't exist in this world...

I am starting the workbook again on January 1st

@voidspace
wao!😮
In your life, Tim has decided that you need to implement the second week of the ACIM workbook, right? or guided by the Holy Spirit?
THAT'S AMAZING...!
Maybe I'll join Tim in another workbook, 365 days from January 1.

@chezurl1983
Yes, I've been internally guided to do the workbook again. So join if you feel inspired!

@voidspace
Isn't it a great idea for me and Tim to work together on an ACIM workbook in 2020?
