46. The impossible world of death

I was watching a little bug crawling along the edge of the floor. I noticed how its "design" was going to mean it had a certain short amount of time to live, to crawl around trying to find food, likely to eventually starve, and die. It seemed obvious that death is built into things in this world, into the forms,. . .

45. The proper use of denial to work miracles

What is true is true. God's truth and reality are the only truth and reality. God's truth is permanent and cannot be changed or damaged. This means that you can either accept tit, or you can PRETEND it is not true, but you cannot change it into something truly false. This means you can accept or deny it, and you. . .

44. There is no death. Stop believing in sickness!

All physical forms, all appearances, all physical conditions, all sicknesses, every illness, all disease, even physical death, . . . . . are all al lie. A MASSIVE lie. To be a miracle worker requires that you stop believing in sickness. In yourself, in others, in the world. Physical sickness is TEMPTATION. If we for a second believe it is real or true, we. . .

43. Let's talk about suicide and why death is optional

In A Course in Miracles, in the beginning, you are safe in God, happily co-creating with Him. Then along comes the tiny mad idea. The authority problem forms, level confusion begins, you go into the separation and the idea of real sin is given belief. Believing that sin is possible, has reality, has occurred producing real effects, and is irreversible,. . .

42. The world is dead and can never be your home

If you'll take a look, willingly, for a while, you'll notice that everything in the world goes wrong sooner or later. The food goes moldy. The leaves die off. The cars break down. The tv stops working. The shoes develop a hole. The carpet gathers dirt. The river drowns someone. The volcanos explode. The lightning strikes a cow. Suns go. . .

41. The world will always disappoint you

Let's take a good hard look at something that very few people want to ever admit. Something dark and awful, but true. Planet Earth, and the rest of this universe, were made in a thought of opposition to Heaven. This was an attempt to make hell real, by dreaming up a world that runs completely opposite to the beautiful divine. . .

40. The world is made of death!

"THERE IS ***NO LIFE*** OUTSIDE OF HEAVEN. Where God created life, there life must be. In any state apart from Heaven life is illusion. At best ***it seems like life; at worst, like death. *** Yet both are judgments on WHAT IS NOT LIFE, equal in their inaccuracy and lack of meaning. Life not in Heaven is impossible, and what is. . .

39. Swear not to die you holy son of God

What if you decide that you are not going to die? Immediately this flies in the face of everything the world's population holds as true and inevitable. It flies in the face of an entire weight of collective thoughts and beliefs about what is normal and natural in this universe. You wouldn't be the first to accomplish this either. St. . .

38. The fear of permadeath

It's not just death that we fear, it's permanent death. We tried to give all illusions a sense of eternity, constancy, permanence and irreversibility. We aren't just afraid of dying, or that someone will die. We're afraid it will be a total absolute permanent separation from which there is no return, a total annihilation, extermination, utter blotting out of life. . .

37. Death is not inevitable

There is a reason why we believe death is inevitable, and why we think there isn't any other choice. At the beginning of separation from God, we attempted to sin against him. That means we tried to attack God, cause Him, and therefore produce real effects to change Him against His will. This was the Son attempting to be the. . .

36. How is death a choice?

You are not of this world. This world isn't the only world. You are of another world, the Kingdom of God, in which you have immortality - eternal life as given by God Himself. This world is an illusory world. It's kind of like a layer on top of reality. A pretend world, a picture, of a form and nature. . .

35. You don't have to go through death

Everything about this world points in the direction of death. "All its roads but lead to disappointment, nothingness and death. " It was designed to do so. Our job as beings from another world, is to demonstrate that we are not under any of these laws, all of them can be broken, and that it is possible to reconfigure the body. . .

34. Death is failure, life is success

When something dies, it fails. The body fails. Organs fails. Tissues fail. It depicts failure on a physical level. The final failure of the body is what we call death. It is when everything fails. Total failure is death. Which means that if you go toward death of the body, you are going towards failure. Which means you are failing. . .

33. 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. . .

32. Overcoming orders of difficulty in miracles

Everything in the world is an illusion. Everything. And this includes the bodies which are seemingly healthy, the bodies which are seemingly sick, and the bodies that seem dead. This also means that trees which have fresh green leaves are as much an illusion as trees whose leaves have fallen and are decaying. Images of a lovely sunset are just. . .

31. Sickness is but a little death

We have many names for death. Headaches, cancer, diabetes, wounds, heartache, unhappiness, grief, lack, depression, insanity, all of it is really death. According to ACIM anything even slightly less than total immortality - eternal life - is a form of death. "Death is a thought which takes on many forms, often unrecognized. It may appear as sadness, fear, anxiety or. . .

30. You are immortal and you cannot die

"But you can confuse yourself with things that do. " The entire function of the Curriculum, is to return you to awareness of Heaven, your true home, where you remain with God in PERFECT IMMORTALITY. Every single thing in the course is geared towards you unlearning death and rediscovering eternal life. This is why the curriculum ends in the RESURRECTION, and. . .

29. The illusion of life

"There IS no life outside of Heaven. Where God created life, there life must be. In any state apart from Heaven, life is illusion. At best, it seems like life; at worst, like death. Yet both are judgments on what is not life, equal in their inaccuracy and lack of meaning. Life not in Heaven is impossible, and what is. . .
