178. 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. . .

177. Lessons are a curriculum of healing

At times I get this sense that when "life lessons" come along, they are not so much "optional lessons" or just painfully difficult trails and struggles,, but rather, that situations and circumstances happen "on purpose" as a kind of "conditioning". A kind of reprogramming.   You are exposed to these conditions and the conditions change you. Rather than that, like,. . .

176. Another kind of scapegoating

For years I thought scapegoating only happens one way. Usually you find a target and you blame everything on them and attack them. Yeah, not pretty. Usually the target is someone who you are are offended by, threatened be, some kind of "enemy". But, what I've discovered is, it's possible to use a person that you are very close to,. . .

174. The healed body!

Here are FIVE passages from ACIM telling us about a body which is not sick, cannot suffer, cannot die, and symbolizes immortality. "****The body can become a sign of life****, a promise of redemption, and a ***breath of immortality*** to those grown sick of breathing in the fetid scent of death. Let it have healing as its PURPOSE. Then will. . .

173. Reasons why miracles are NOT a shift in perception

First we must acknowledge, there is miraculous stuff going on in Heaven, which has nothing to do with perception or the realm of illusions. e. g. "Miracles are a universal blessing from God""God's miracles are as total as His Thought, because they ARE His thoughts. God shines in them all with perfect light. ""You are a miracle" (in heaven)"The miraculous power of the. . .

172. 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. . .

171. Separation makes sickness, joining heals

You are in your brother's mind, and he is in yours. You share minds and are joined in holy relationship. When you believe in separation, using the ego weapons of attack, judgement, sin, guilt, fear, etc, you split off a part of yourself from your brother and isolate it into a body. You become body identified. The part of you. . .

170. Who am I behind my reactions to the world?

Who am I behind my reactions to the world?

The more I learn that I am responsible for everything I experience, the clearer it becomes that anything I experience is not "because of" the world. It used to be that everything I experienced seemed to be a reaction to the world, seemingly caused by it. I could not separate out myself from any of it, and any upsets or. . .

168. You’re the one who needs forgiveness

This might sound selfish, but most of the course is about you and what you are doing to yourself. It’s you who have attacked yourself. It’s you who needs healing. It’s you who needs to take responsibility for accepting atonement for yourself. It’s you who’s been hurting yourself and choosing suffering. It’s you who has the free will. It’s you. . .

167. Forgive yourself first to forgive the world

"Forgiveness is the only gift I give because it is the only gift I want, and everything I give I give myself. This is salvation s simple formula. "   "Only the self-accused condemn. "   "It can be but myself I crucify. "   "The secret of salvation is but this: That YOU are doing this UNTO YOURSELF. "   "You but accuse. . .

166. Being needy and overcoming neediness

When you see yourself as lacking in some way, whether it be that you're tired and spent, nothing left to give, stressed out, overwhelmed or whatever, you'll see yourself as "in need". The world will now start to appear to you as being needy. It will seem other people are being needy and trying to take from you. That they. . .

165. Allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you

In A Course in Miracles, there is a significant theme of allowing the Holy Spirit to fulfill his function, without you interrupting it, and without you attempting to take over his role as healer and therapist. But it may not be obvious how far this goes and what this implies. So let's look at what your role in this world. . .

164. The Holy Spirit is the therapist and healer, not you

“The miracle-worker begins by PERCEIVING light, and translates HIS perception into sureness by continually extending it, and ACCEPTING ITS ACKNOWLEDGMENT. Its EFFECTS assure him IT IS THERE. The therapist does not heal; he LETS HEALING BE. HE can point to darkness, but he CANNOT bring light OF HIMSELF, for light is NOT of him. But being FOR him, it MUST. . .

163. How your mind causes all body sickness

Let's talk about sickness purely as a matter of cause and effect. Your mind is causal, and when sane has no confusion about this fact. It does not mistake its own effects for causes, and especially does not believe its effects are causing it. When the mind is sick, it uses denial to block out of awareness its own causal. . .

162. Forgiveness is not real unless the BODY is healed!

This is a radical teaching in A Course in Miracles which is often denied or distorted, simply because it seems too radical to be true. The BODY must be healed otherwise the mind IS NOT HEALED. "Only the mind AND body need atonement. " "Damaged bodies are accusers. " "A damaged body is PROOF the mind ***has not been healed***. " "Forgiveness is. . .

161. The simplicity of salvation

Salvation is EXTREMELY simple. "You cannot be hurt unless you hurt yourself. " In this one sentence is the whole course. Just stop hurting yourself! Let's try to make this extremely clear. You are an immortal being which cannot be affected by anything. Nothing real can be threatened. You cannot be hurt or attacked or damaged. Nothing can happen against your. . .
