Social networking is much like anything nowadays, i.e., forecasted ideas using the content from the ego wrong mind. Online attacks locally for any Course in Miracles (ACIM) are through the many comments, quotes along with other postings in which we react to our interpretation which in turn becomes the justification for the response (T-12.I.1) or our reason behind posting acim podcast, etc. A lot of students possess a fundamental confusion between form and content in addition to what it really way to join so let us not sugar coat it: Social networking is forms (forecasted content from the ego wrong mind) from joining using the wrong mind. Therefore, in the start it's a number of attacks until we forgive and begin identifying (joining) with the proper mind.
Even just in the program, all of us sit around online with some kind of a digital device mindlessly doing our ego factor. Okay, some may be standing, leaning or lounging:
Hanging out and speaking concerning the Course isn't the same factor as doing hard work of staring at the text and putting the concepts into practice to discover exactly what the Course means (Kenneth Wapnick, Rules for Decision).
Within the same Rules, Wapnick also states, "What provides the ego its power is the getting became a member of by using it, your identification by using it." Forms are forecasted like a defense from the opposite and therefore are just with the ego wrong mind and therefore they don't matter.
Since social networking is about forms that are fragmented projections from the ego, we then perceive the Sonship as fragmented making the mistake real. Specialness is valued being an idol placed prior to the Passion for God and individuals perceived variations keep up with the separation within the mind. Absolutely any fragmented attribute we judge in another online (or anywhere) should be seen in any Sonship since we are really One out of reality. That's the reason attack is not discrete and should be relinquished (T-7.Mire.1).
Discrete means, "Individually separate and distinct." All attack in all forms is identical and is supposed to divide the whole from the Sonship since it attacks (fragments) the Sonship via variations rather of sameness. Hence, we are able to understand why Wapnick would say that it's silly to make use of the program like a weapon when it is clearly a training course located in unity.
