"18. A miracle is a service. It is the maximal service that one soul can render another. It is a way of loving your neighbor as yourself. The doer recognizes his own and his neighbor's inestimable value simultaneously. " This touches on the essence of A Course in Miracles and the Golden Rule. Jesus is literally telling us that YOU ARE. . .
Your mind has the ability to be either constructive (creative) or destructive. Using the mind for destructive purposes is what the entire ego thought system is about. The whole world was made in an attempt to destroy God and Heaven. The mind, in its healing and accepting of atonement, has to be restored to being PURELY CONSTRUCTIVE. That means that. . .
This will fly against everything the ego believes, because the ego says that people are supposed to suffer. That guilt is justified. That punishment is needed. That somehow you are breaking the law if you help someone. Surely it's not possible to actually heal another person? To affect their mind? To undo their level confusion? To reverse their mental illness?. . .
TL;DR: "love people!" As I lay down to rest, I started to get a stream of insights about miracle working. If you ask God, e. g. "God please heal that person's broken leg", this is already starting on the wrong foot. The thing is, the broken leg is not the problem. The broken leg is just an effect, a projection, of. . .
It is not possible to PERCEIVE **within** reality, because there is no perception WITHIN reality. Perception is an interpretative process based on judgement. You can evaluate reality and PERCEIVE it, but this isn't the SAME as knowing it or DIRECTLY experiencing it. "Only your vision can convey to you what YOU can see. It reaches you directly, without a need. . .
A. Sometimes ACIM says things like "God has not many Sons, but only One. " B. Sometimes ACIM says things like "We are the Sons of God Himself and therefore as holy as He is" Which is true? A? B? or Both? Why does Jesus say BOTH that God has only one son, AND then say that he has many of. . .
Basically, you simply just need to remember who you are, as God created you. To "know" your SELF again. Jesus: "I was a man who remembered the Soul and its knowledge. " "I have nothing that does not come from God. The main difference between us as yet is that I have NOTHING ELSE. This leaves me in a state of. . .
In ACIM Jesus sometimes says things which SOUND contradictory, but they are not. He will claim one thing, then claim another, sometimes in the same sentence. And it will sound like the two things are totally opposite. So then you'll tend to conclude only one of the two statements can be true. But this is a mistake. Here are some. . .
A brother is an equal sibling, who shares the same parent as you. Right? Yes. So in order for there to be brothers, there has to be more than two children coming from the same parent, right? Yes. When the children exist as brothers, does the parent become obliterated? No, of course not. Does the fact that there are brothers,. . .
It may be the most counter-intuitive, impossible thing you can imagine, but if you are feeling like shit, the best thing you can do is to send love to someone. That sounds like a tall order, in fact maybe seemingly the hardest thing you could do at the time. Because it you feel shit then you really don't want to. . .
What if when you become healed, the whole world is transformed in some way and is a little lighter? This may sound radical, but it does appear to be supported in the course in various ways. Jesus speaks of how when you are healed, others cannot be omitted from your healing. Jesus speaks of how if you change your mind. . .
Ok so this might be a bit controversial. It seems to me, there MUST be "different things" in heaven, somehow. When you start to look at it, there's just too many different things happening there. 1) God created the one son or sonship, which comprises the sons of God. That's fine. If God were to have only created this we. . .
"When you forgive the world YOUR guilt, YOU will be free of it. Its innocence does NOT demand your guilt, nor does your guiltlessness rest on ITS sins. This is the obvious, a secret kept from no-one but yourself. And it is this that has maintained you SEPARATE from the world, and kept your brother SEPARATE from you. Now need. . .
"The sick must heal THEMSELVES, for the truth is IN them. But, having OBSCURED it, the light in ANOTHER mind must shine into theirs, because that light IS theirs" "Perceive in sickness but another call for love, and offer your brother what he believes he cannot offer himself. " Here is a secret to helping others to heal. Jesus is. . .
"The sick are merciless to everyone, and in contagion do they seek to kill. Death seems an easy price, if they can say, "Behold me, brother, at your hand I die. " For sickness is the witness to his guilt, and death would prove his errors MUST be sins. " You are one with your brother. What applies to you applies to. . .
The thing about the body is that it's a limitation. You as a spirit are unlimited, infinite, everywhere. You are omnipresent like God. To seemingly "enter" a body you have to massively confine yourself to one location, separated off from the rest. It's like having your hands tied. Huge amounts of awareness have to be shut out. Not to mention. . .
I suspect that miracle impulses are not mere “urges” or “compulsions” to love, but rather I suspect they are actual “pulses” of an energetic expression, like a ball of light or a little spark of life force which a person transmits. And I think these pulses can be expressed/created by loving minds and transfer to others, causing instant healing. I. . .
This goes way beyond "just healing yourself. " "To heal, then, is to correct perception in your brother AND yourself by sharing the Holy Spirit with him. This places you both WITHIN the Kingdom and restores ITS wholeness in your minds. " Note that such healing REQUIRES that you ***SHARE THE HOLY SPIRIT*** with others. He cannot be left out of the. . .
