When something dies, it fails. The body fails. Organs fails. Tissues fail. It depicts failure on a physical level. The final failure of the body is what we call death. It is when everything fails. Total failure is death. Which means that if you go toward death of the body, you are going towards failure. Which means you are failing. . .
A collection of quotes from A Course in Miracles. "Right-Mindedness neither exalts nor depreciates the mind of the miracle worker nor of the ****miracle receiver****. However, as a creative act, the miracle ****need not await the Right-Mindedness of the receiver. In fact, its purpose is to restore him TO his Right Mind. **** But it is essential that the miracle worker be. . .
There is a risk of accepting the world. Because we have to be aware that our perception and beliefs have a lot to do with what we see in the world, or as the world. If we are in ego and we believe the world is real, not an illusion, e. g. war is real, suffering is real, sickness is happening. . .
If you as Christ, God's Son, are "one with God", does that mean you do not exist as an individual being/son? Does it mean there is only God and NO son? No. It also does not mean that your "brother" is an "ego idea of separation". Brothers are co-children of the same Father - God. In not one single one of. . .
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,. . .
For many, ACIM is about self help and doing the lessons and trying to get back to a simplified idea of God/reality. But the scenario of what is happening in this world, why we're here, and what we're returning to, is part of a big picture "story" that I don't really see talked about a whole lot. At least not. . .
Salvation is EXTREMELY simple. "You cannot be hurt unless you hurt yourself. " In this one sentence is the whole course. Just stop hurting yourself! Let's try to make this extremely clear. You are an immortal being which cannot be affected by anything. Nothing real can be threatened. You cannot be hurt or attacked or damaged. Nothing can happen against your. . .
1. Everything other than me is responsible for sin happening. Everyone else is responsible for my condition and happiness. Everyone else is doing everything to me. The world is causing me. I am not responsible for anything (face of innocence, victimhood, death). They need to change, not me. This is "forgiveness to destroy". 2. I am the one who caused. . .
"The final judgement on the world contains no condemnation. For it sees the world as totally forgiven, without sin and ***wholly purposeless***. Without a cause, and now ***without a function in Christ's sight, it merely slips away to nothingness. **** There it was born, and there it ends as well. And all the figures in the dream in which the world. . .
“Eternity will shine away the world. ” ”The world will spin into the nothingness from which it came. ” ”A forgiven world cannot last. ” ”There is no world. ” This may seem obvious to say, but. . . whatever existed BEFORE the separation, is **all** that should exist AFTER it is over. Before the separation, there WAS no world. There were no bodies. There was. . .
There is a common trend towards trying to accept everything in the world. To allow it. To give it permission. To let it be whatever way it is. There is one part of this which is beneficial. If you resist things, you make them real. If you control things, you make them real. If you judge and attack things, you. . .
A Course in Miracles is a teaching us to leave a dream of mortality, and return to a state of immortality. Everything in the course points to this. You are not merely substituting one limited illusion for another. You are literally substituting DEATH for ETERNAL LIFE. That is why the curriculum culminates in RESURRECTION. Resurrection is the return to ETERNAL. . .
All of the course’s METAPHYSICS is based on perfectly clear, black and white, impeccable logical reasoning. REASON is the attribute of a sane mind. Through reason, you can literally SEE SENSE. What makes perfect sense is true. “The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. ” (something which is everything, leaves no room for anything. . .
False perception is not merely a state in which you have illusions ABOUT the world. It’s a state in which TWO things are happening: 1) Things which are illusions, false, unreal, are MISTAKEN for things that are real and true. 2) Things which are actually real and true, are MISTAKEN for things which are illusions. BOTH of these are happening. . .
"Forgiveness, salvation, Atonement, true perception, all are one. " For the longest time I was told and believed that forgiveness was all about doing something, applying, being practical, trying to change my mind. But this did not add up with what ACIM says. It tells us that forgiveness looks and is still and does nothing. That it recognizes there is no. . .
In order to perform a miracle, your mind has to be in a state of love, because miracles are expressions FROM love. Miracle mindedness is a state of love, and when you express from that state your expressions have power, capable of healing others. Love is strong and "there is nothing my holiness cannot do. " Being miracle minded is the. . .
Accepting your true nature as an immortal being is the conclusion of this course. God created you immortal and you will return to your immortality. Nothing can hurt you. You cannot die. Do not try to prove otherwise or you will seem to suffer an illusion of suffering which does nothing real. "What is immortal cannot BE attacked; what is. . .
Your miracle WORKING, DOING, PERFORMING, is supposed to restore the right mindedness of SOMEONE ELSE WHO IS *NOT* IN THEIR RIGHT MIND!!!!!!! "We said in a previous section that ***the miracle is an expression*** of miracle-Mindedness. Miracle-Mindedness merely means Right-Mindedness in the sense that we are now using it. Right-Mindedness neither exalts nor depreciates the mind of the miracle worker. . .
