The first time that I became able to accept the atonement for myself, undoing a long-standing belief in a "real sin" that I had never been able to completely let go, Jesus said to me "now you will be able to perform miracles". Notice that the steps I took to get to the atonement and accept it, which was an. . .
In the atonement, it becomes the privilege of the forgiven to forgive. In the atonement, you gain the authority to forgive the sins of others, and not just your own sins. This literally means you are able to heal others instantly through your forgiveness, because forgiveness leads to an authority over illusions. It's not just a technicality, like you accept the atonement and. . .
Can you accept the atonement?For the ego, atonement means that you really did something wrong, and now you have to pay for it. This is the idea that you must make up for the losses you caused, because of your guilt. It calls for you to make a sacrifice, to have some portion of yourself or what you value taken. . .
I used to be really pretty vague about what the Atonement was or how it was really accessed or applied. People would say, "claim the atonement" or "accept the atonement".

I have now over the past few months received. . .
Sometimes I am told to 'surrender', or 'relax', and to me this means I need to actively express a willingness to drop ego. Often this is when I'm laying in bed. I will then repeat several times over and over, something like:"I surrender, I let go, I surrender, I surrender, I surrender, I let go". I say this in quick succession so. . .
"Having been restored to your original state, you naturally become part of the Atonement yourself. You now share my inability to tolerate the lack of love in yourself and in everyone else, and must join the Great Crusade to correct it. The slogan for this Crusade is "Listen, Learn, and Do. "This means Listen to My Voice, Learn to undo the. . .
"32 I inspire all miracles, which are really intercessions. "Thank you Jesus. Dictionary definition of intercession:"the action of intervening on behalf of another. "You think miracles are just something you receive for yourself as part of your 'self study' and application of forgiveness for yourself, or of you 'accepting the atonement only for yourself'? When you accept atonement you accept it for. . .
One of the core ideas of the Course which is perhaps the MOST resisted, is that there is no world. It is not a popular idea. People don't like talking about it.
