38. Understanding contradictions in ACIM

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. . .

37. What is a brother?

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,. . .

36. Sending love to someone heals you both

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. . .

35. When I am healed I am not healed alone

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. . .

34. There are different things in heaven

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. . .

33. Innocence vs Guilt and the Golden Rule

"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. . .

32. Healing others

"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. . .

31. The importance of healing your body

"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. . .

30. Special body relationships

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. . .

29. Miracle Impulses

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. . .

28. Forgiveness should heal you AND your brother

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. . .

27. Sick bodies are accusers

Sickness in your own body is an attempt to accuse others of sin. It is part of the process of projection. "You but accuse your brother of your own sins" "Sick bodies are accusers". This is entirely to do with cause and effect. In your natural state you are purely causal. You are not at the effect of anything external. . . .

26. What dies?

There is a strange tug of war between the idea that a person is a body who dies, and the idea that the person is more than a body. If you believe the person is a body, and only a body, and the body dies, you will believe heavily that the person has literally ceased existing. No soul moving on. . .

25. Are you a blessing or a curse?

I'm learning recently that my mind and attitude may well affect other people. I think this is part of being more responsible for what my mind is doing "to itself", and extends to others, in that whatever I am doing to myself I am also attempting to do to others. Whatever sense of sin or guilt I have about myself. . .

24. Being a miracle worker

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. . .
