1505. Reasons why miracles are NOT a shift in perception

First we must acknowledge, there is miraculous stuff going on in Heaven, which has nothing to do with perception or the realm of illusions. e. g. "Miracles are a universal blessing from God""God's miracles are as total as His Thought, because they ARE His thoughts. God shines in them all with perfect light. ""You are a miracle" (in heaven)"The miraculous power of the. . .

1504. Beliefs are blinding

Belief is an artificial tool that we use in place of knowledge. Belief attempts to establish something as true. Belief is a concentration or focus, a separated off state, in which that which has been "accepted as true" is allowed into the mind to be experienced as desirable, while that which is "outside" of that box is experienced as unwanted,. . .

1503. The divine logic of the Kingdom

The divine logic of the Kingdom

THE DIVINE LOGIC OF THE KINGDOM <3 The Kingdom of God is God's thought system. It's a realm of mind and being in which there is a "logic" operating. It's a living logic. It is a functioning system of mind whose properties are derived from its foundation. The foundation of the system is God, so we have to begin by. . .

1502. You have children in reality created with your brothers

"Your creations ARE the logical outcome of His premises. HIS thinking has established them FOR you. They are therefore THERE, EXACTLY where they belong. They belong to your mind, as part of your identification with HIS. But your state of mind and your recognition of WHAT IS IN YOUR MIND depends, at any given moment, on what you believe ABOUT. . .

1501. Accepting reality - everything in the Kingdom is still perfect

"This is a very simple course. Perhaps you do not feel that a course which, in the end, teaches nothing more than that only reality is true is necessary. But do you believe it?"Before the separation from God and the fall of man, quite simply you were only as God created you, happily co-creating with God in joy and love. . .

1500. Are you wiling to let God define the truth?

”Yet in this learning is salvation born. And what you are will TELL you of Itself. ” “I am come to tell you that the choice of which is true is not yours. ” I consider myself fairly devoted to ACIM. My attitude about is that it contains an expression of Truth, and that Jesus knows what the truth is. I have. . .

1499. Overcoming orders of difficulty in miracles

Everything in the world is an illusion. Everything. And this includes the bodies which are seemingly healthy, the bodies which are seemingly sick, and the bodies that seem dead. This also means that trees which have fresh green leaves are as much an illusion as trees whose leaves have fallen and are decaying. Images of a lovely sunset are just. . .

1498. Healing the split mind

When your mind is whole, you are in your right mind, and not in two minds. Being in two minds is what happens when your mind is split in half. What happens in the state of split mindedness is quite interesting. It's not merely that you split off a part of your mind. As you introduce a split, ie a. . .

1497. Separation makes sickness, joining heals

You are in your brother's mind, and he is in yours. You share minds and are joined in holy relationship. When you believe in separation, using the ego weapons of attack, judgement, sin, guilt, fear, etc, you split off a part of yourself from your brother and isolate it into a body. You become body identified. The part of you. . .

1496. Fear of nothing

Fear is always a fear of something that does not exist, is not happening, has not happened, and you cannot overcome. You can do nothing about the things you are afraid of, because they do not exist. You can't change them, because they're not there. You can't oppose them or go up against them because they're not there. In fact. . .

1495. Who am I behind my reactions to the world?

Who am I behind my reactions to the world?

The more I learn that I am responsible for everything I experience, the clearer it becomes that anything I experience is not "because of" the world. It used to be that everything I experienced seemed to be a reaction to the world, seemingly caused by it. I could not separate out myself from any of it, and any upsets or. . .

1493. What is the meaning of the world?

"The idea for today is, of course, the reason why a meaningless world is impossible. What God did not create does not exist. And everything that does exist exists as He created it. The world you see has nothing to do with reality. It is of your own making, and it does not exist. " Meaningfulness is of God. Meaning is. . .

1492. There is no sin and you're not a sinner

"What if you looked within and saw NO sin?" "Let me remember that there is no sin. " "There is no sin. " "There is no sin. Creation is unchanged. " "Before a holy relationship there is no sin. " I asked God, "please forgive me". HS responded, "for what?" Again I remembered, there is no sin. Does this mean God has completely forgiven. . .

1491. Listening to guidance - Doing God's Will

LISTENING TO GUIDANCE - DOING GOD'S WILL At times, I ask for guidance. And I get the guidance. But then I go into a mode of trying to decide whether to follow the guidance, or not, which means I am not really listening to the guidance. I've noticed that this indicates a state of uncertainty, which is fear, an indecision,. . .

1490. The ego is the idea of selfishness

"The ego is the idea of selfishness. The soul is the idea of self-fullness. " Within me there is an ego aspect which is very selfish. This aspect rears its head if I see myself as having to do something I don't want to do, being caused to do something because of someone else, or that my condition or situation is. . .

1489. Rethinking the cold-hearted world

When I came to A Course in Miracles, it was through Gary Renard's books, which I later learned were deeply based on Ken W's teachings. They also presented a view that was championed as "non-duality". The books spoke of the world as being a shitty place, a hell hole, psycho planet, a world of death and suffering, spinning its wheels. . .

1488. We must learn to love the real world

Below is a collection of quotes I've been gathering relating to the world and the real world. I did this to better understand what the course is trying to get us to see about the world. It is clear that there is a world we made, but that there are two very different ways to look at it. The world. . .
