123. The supernatural nature of miracles

God's Kingdom is the level of primary reality. We then made a SECOND world, with the power of our minds. When we made the world we also invented all the rules of the world, all of the laws of physics, all of the ways spacetime would function, and populated it with every object and body and planet and galaxy. What. . .

122. Are you wiling to let God define the truth?

”Yet in this learning is salvation born. And what you are will TELL you of Itself. ” “I am come to tell you that the choice of which is true is not yours. ” I consider myself fairly devoted to ACIM. My attitude about is that it contains an expression of Truth, and that Jesus knows what the truth is. I have. . .

121. 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. . .

120. Nothing real can be threatened

Nothing real can be hurt. Nothing real can be attacked. Nothing real can be damaged. Nothing real can be made sick. Nothing real can ever die. Nothing real can suffer. Nothing real can be afraid. Nothing real can commit a crime. Nothing real can be sinful. Nothing real can be guilty. Nothing real can be punished. Nothing real can be. . .

119. What is time? Is it eternity? Is time reality? God's creation?

WHAT IS TIME? IS IT ETERNITY? IS TIME REALITY? GOD's CREATION? There have been a couple of posts here talking about time, and speculating with wishful-thinking that time is eternal or a creation of God. This is not true. The course is very clear on this. "Time and Eternity cannot both be real, because they contradict each other. " - ACIM"For. . .

117. 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. . .

116. 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. . . .

115. 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. . .

114. 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. . . .

113. The secret of salvation is based on your free will

Let's say that you have totally free will, and I also have totally free will. That means that there you are FREE FROM my will. It literally means I CANNOT do anything to you. There you are, fully causal, fully choosing, and whatever you will happens, and whatever you don't will doesn't happen. So there is no room or scenario. . .

111. What are you causing? Everything is chosen

Given everything is driven by free-willed cause and effect, nothing is accidental. There are no mistakes. There is nothing happening randomly or by chance. Nothing happens at all without someone choosing it and willing it. There must be a CAUSE, before there is ANY effect. You might think this is not true based on what appears to be a world. . .

110. You can walk on water - unless you decide that you can't

Someone said to me that they do not believe it's possible to walk on water. The simple response to this is, you are unlimited and there is nothing your holiness cannot do. Your beliefs are your CHOOSING. If you want to believe something is not possible, it's not because it isn't possible, it's that you're CHOOSING that it not happen. . . .

109. The deeper metaphysics behind the words of A Course in Miracles

"Let us not forget, however, that words are but symbols of symbols. They are thus twice removed from reality. " ALL words in ACIM are symbols TWICE removed from the truth. The word "apple" is twice removed from reality. The thing it represents, the actual apple itself sitting in your fruit bowl, is once removed from reality. Notice that words are. . .

108. How the ego thinks vs how God thinks

Oneness does not mean "one thing. " In reality, all thinking follows along the lines that whatever applies to one creation, applies to all creations. What is true of one son, is true of another. What is true of you, is true of the entire sonship. Whatever applies to you, applies to everything. It either applies to BOTH of you, or. . .

107. Examples of impeccable logical reasoning

All of the course’s METAPHYSICS is based on perfectly clear, black and white, impeccable logical reasoning. REASON is the attribute of a sane mind. Through reason, you can literally SEE SENSE. What makes perfect sense is true. “The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. ” (something which is everything, leaves no room for anything. . .

106. 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. . .
