76. You are God’s Creation

Something that I am really connecting with strongly at the moment, is the very ultra-simple truth that I am GOD’S CREATION. This is reflected in ideas such as: ”I am forever an effect of God,” “I am still as God created me. ” I focus simply on the fact that whatever I am, I MUST BE what God has determined me. . .

75. The two worlds

There are two worlds. The Kingdom of God, which really exists, and the world we made to oppose the Kingdom as an assertion of death and non-existence. The Kingdom of God is a permanent, real world. It is Creation, in which everything is alive and has eternal life. All is immortal, perfect, loving and at peace. Nothing can ever happen. . .

74. I am still as God created me

God created you perfect. It's a done deal. You're already complete. You cannot add to yourself or take away. You can't be changed. You are permanently as God created you. He didn't leave anything out or fail to share anything or leave you less than completed. You can't be perfected or improved upon. You're already absolutely divine. So the one. . .

73. We are still as God created us

What you are, and what your brother is, is ONLY what has been given by God. Your inheritance, shared with your brother, comes only from God. You are permanent host to God. God is in you. He has shared his Will with you. He has given his Mind to you. You have his freedom and his love. You are ONLY. . .

71. 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. . .

70. 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. . .

69. The difference between horizontal and vertical perception

There is one reference to "vertical perception" in ACIM, as part of miracle principle 41. Jesus says: "41. The miracle is a learning device which lessens the need for time. The sudden shifts from horizontal to vertical perception which the miracle entails introduces an interval from which the doer and the receiver both emerge much farther along in time than. . .

68. 20 Reasons why God did NOT create the Earth

"The world you see is an illusion of a world, God did not create it, for what He creates must be eternal as Himself. " 1. God is permanent. Earth is not. Earth will end. 2. God is eternal. Earth is not. Earth does not last forever. 3. God can only create by extending himself, and so whatever He creates has. . .

67. Get the fact straight!

There are some basic facts in the course. These facts are completely clear cut, black and white. They do not have any exceptions. There is no “maybe” to them. They are so perfectly defined and clear that all you can do is either accept them or deny them. Such is the truth. e. g. The fact is, God is eternal. So. . .

66. God's reality does not involve change of any kind

"Change", is the idea that Eternity has STOPPED being what it was, it has been destroyed, it has been replaced by something that did not exist, which also will be replaced by an upcoming denial of what is. Anything that changes is NOT REAL. Anything that changes is NOT OF GOD. Changes, which require time and space, are not reality. "What. . .

65. God only creates the sonship and the holy spirit, and that is all!

"***The world, in its original connotation, included both the proper creation of man by God, AND the proper creation by man in his Right Mind. ***" (and nothing else). "The latter required the endowment of man by God with free will, because all loving creation is freely given. Nothing in either of these statements implies any sort of level involvement, or,. . .

64. God can only create in his own likeness - Creation is extension and inheritance

Here is the simple LAW OF GOD’S EXTENSION. 1. God can ONLY create (cause) that which is LIKE HIM (as the source), made OF HIM (same substance), with the same inherited abilities. 2. What God creates must be able to do what God does. It must SHARE all of God’s properties, AND pass them on fully to its own creations. . . .

63. If God made the world, God made death and suffering

"And if God created bodies, death would indeed be real. But God would not be loving. "Let's just be clear about something here. God creates or extends reality. Everything real is within God's being. Everything real comes from His Will. Ok. The entire "realm" of God is within Himself, and all of it is real and deliberately created BY HIM. SO. . . . . If we. . .

61. You share the power of God and are powerful also!

Some believe that God is the only power and that of yourself you can do nothing. This seems to be a state of humility. But there is an ego trick at work here, suggesting that if God has all the power, you have NONE. This is bullshit. When alone, isolated, separate, being ego, you are disempowered. You have given away and. . .

60. Take back your power!

ACIM is simple. You've given your power away to illusions which have no power of their own. You have projected causality outside yourself, making you an effect. You think the world is responsible for causing you, so you try to persuade it to cause you in ways you prefer. This is all backwards. Reverse this causality and you're done. We. . .

59. Recognizing illusions for what they are

We do not recognize an illusion when we see one. Since birth we've been looking at this world believing it's real. It seems real enough. But "there is nothing so blinding as perception of form. " The problem is, we don't have something MORE real to compare it to. There is no frame of reference to evaluate it or contrast it. . . .
