57. Miraculousness is natural and permanent

This may not be explicitly pointed out anywhere in the course, but basically everything on "level 1" (reality) is permanently miraculous. God is miraculous. You are a miracle. Your creations are miraculous. The Holy Spirit is miraculous. Heaven is miraculous. Miraculousness is more than just the expression of miracles, it's a state of ego-law-breaking limitation-defying unlimitedness. In this world, on. . .

56. When the separation is over, only Holy Trinity is real

“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. . .

55. God thinks holographically - wholes within wholes

"The recognition of the part as whole, and of the whole in every part, is perfectly natural. For it is the way GOD thinks, and what is natural to Him, IS natural to you. " What this means is that God, who is Himself WHOLE, when He creates, He must create another WHOLE. The Son of God, or Sons of God,. . .

54. The problem with non-duality in A Course in Miracles

The idea of non-duality is an attempt to describe reality or the nature of God. What is really real and really exists. At first we have the idea of duality or polar opposites. Then we reach the idea that the world is secretly "all one thing", as though all the objects are connected together by a singular "one" something. Then. . .

53. The real world absolutely IS Heaven!

"Sit quietly and look upon the world you see, and tell yourself, "The real world is not like this. It has no buildings, and there are no streets where people walk alone and separately. There are no stores where people buy an endless list of things they do not need. It is not lit with artificial light, and night comes. . .

52. The ego's view of the world

The ego wants to believe that God created this world. The ego believes the world is real. The ego believes the body is real. The ego wants to keep all forms and bodies. The ego believes bodies and forms are alive. The ego believes there is value in keeping objects. The ego does not regard the world as unreal or. . .

51. Simple logical reasoning, divine logic makes sense

The thought system of heaven and the thought system of the ego, both follow perfect logical reasoning. Impeccable logic in fact. The only difference is that God’s thought system begins with truth, and the ego’s system begins with what is false. From the premise, an entire creation arises. The outcome or result of each system is the only outcome possible. . .

50. Earth and Heaven are different worlds

Yes Earth is not Heaven. Being ON EARTH, on the physical planet earth, is NOT being in Heaven. You cannot be in both places, and you cannot see both worlds. One or the other. This is your only choice. Either you are IN this world, or you are IN Heaven. Earth, or Heaven. You choose. Can't have your cake and. . .

49. Immortality is your true nature

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. . .

48. What is the real world? The forgiven world? Heaven?

In ACIM we're told about "the real world" and many people have different ideas about what that's referring to. Here's my take on it. It took me quite a long time to realize this. Contrary to popular belief, the real world is actually another name for Heaven. God's creation. Reality. This is why Jesus correctly uses the word "Real" in. . .

47. You can be in Heaven, it's a place - the dwelling place of the Son of God and God Himself

Some people recall and quote that Heaven is supposedly not a place or a condition, but just an awareness of perfect oneness. Well, if you go read the full paragraph, it says otherwise: "THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS THE DWELLING PLACE OF THE SON OF GOD, who left not his Father, and dwells not apart from Him. Heaven is not. . .

46. Heaven is not Earth and never will be - they are opposite states

Let's just be VERY, VERY clear for a moment. Heaven and Earth are definitely TWO VERY DISTINCT STATES/PLACES in A Course in Miracles. If they were the same place there'd be no point Jesus referring to them as opposites or as two things. Or as "in heaven" or as "on earth". THEY ARE TWO PLACES. You cannot be in, or. . .

45. Looking past solid matter to the light of heaven

Here is Jesus talking about how you will see through solid matter when you recognize the world is forgiven, which means OVERLOOKING IT.   ”The body cannot see this, for the body AROSE from this for its protection, which must ALWAYS depend on keeping it (heaven/reality) NOT seen. The body's eyes will NEVER look on it (body can NEVER be. . .

44. There is no life outside of Heaven

Time for another super-radical teaching!!! There is no LIFE outside of Heaven. This world is not ALIVE. Bodies do not LIVE. “Life forms“ are really “death forms”. All forms are illusions. Bodies do not exist. Bodies are nothing, they neither live or die. Animals are not life. Humans are not life. The planet is not alive. This is a dream. . .

43. You cannot see two worlds

There are two worlds, because God created one world, and then you went and tried to make another world to oppose His Kingdom. This second world is this universe, including the Earth. It is OPPOSITE in nature to God's Kingdom in EVERY way. And here is a key, CORE FACT in the A Course in Miracles metaphysics. YOU CANNOT SEE. . .

42. Only heaven is real. There is now world.

There are two thought systems based on two entirely different logical reasonings, and it has produced "two worlds. " And only one of them is real. A AND B = Heaven/God's Creation/Reality. A OR B = Hell/Earth/ego/the world you made/a dream. The two thought systems are entirely different. They are run on different laws. Heaven is one thought system. Earth and. . .

41. Heaven and Earth are opposite in every way, and only one is real

"W-pI. 131. 7. Heaven remains your one alternative to this strange world you made and all its ways; its shifting patterns and uncertain goals, its painful pleasures and its tragic joys. 2 God made no contradictions. 3 What denies its own existence and attacks itself is not of Him. 4 He did not make two minds, with Heaven as the glad effect. . .

40. God did not create the world. This is the world you MADE. It has not been created and does not exist.

There is a huge difference between CREATING, and MAKING. "The world you MADE" is NOT a world that's been CREATED. Creation is the perfect extension of the whole of God. God creates perfect children who are perfect mirror image reflections of Himself. They are given ALL of God. They are equipped to create fully and wholly, just like God, with. . .
