143. Levels in A Course in Miracles

In ACIM's teaching, there was originally just one "level" or realm in which to exist - The Kingdom of God, Heaven. This is true because the Kingdom is one logical state or nature. In the separation, we invented a second level or logical state, by trying to be opposite to the Kingdom. This wasn't a partial opposition it was a. . .

142. You and your brothers are one

"18. A miracle is a service. It is the maximal service that one soul can render another. It is a way of loving your neighbor as yourself. The doer recognizes his own and his neighbor's inestimable value simultaneously. " This touches on the essence of A Course in Miracles and the Golden Rule. Jesus is literally telling us that YOU ARE. . .

141. Why is life here so difficult?

Change the world? Well. As it turns out, its not possible to immediately materialize changes with the mind, unless of course you are more spiritually advanced. In this world, all things tend to be governed by the ego laws, and everything is difficult. To bring about any kind of alteration requires effort and a lot of time. A lot of. . .

140. What is forgiveness metaphysically?

Boiling ACIM down to pure logic, we end up with this. "Only the truth is true and nothing else is true. " ) God's realm and creation are TRUE. 2) The world we made in dreaming is FALSE. 3) Forgiveness means becoming TRUE while inside of the FALSE in preparation for moving into the realm of the TRUE. 4) Eventually returning. . .

139. Doing God's will

God's will isn't really a matter of "whether" you do God's will or not. If God wills something, it is done. But that doesn't mean you have no freedom. ACIM teaches that "God does not coerce" and "even God would not oppose your will". Since your will is really one with God's will, or the same as, to in any way. . .

138. The power of miracles

"What He enables you to do is clearly NOT of this world, for ***miracles violate every law of reality***, as this world judges it. Every law of time and space, of magnitude and mass, of prediction and control, is transcended, for what the Holy Spirit enables you to do is clearly beyond ALL of them. " "What the Holy Spirit enables. . .

137. The absence of something is not the presence of something else - life resurrects the dead

There is no evil, only the seeming absence of the good. There is no sin, only the seeming absence of love. There is no death, only the seeming absence of life. There is no darkness, only the seeming absence of light. To take something and suggest that just because it is ABSENT, must mean it is the PRESENCE of something. . .

136. You are immortal and you cannot die

”You are immortal and you cannot die“ - ACIM Let’s take a moment to put everything in its proper perspective and remember THE TRUTH. YOU are immortal. God created you with eternal life. You can NEVER DIE. You can never be sick, you can never suffer, you can never be anything other than God created. HE decided what you are,. . .

135. Everything is deliberate and intentional

Nothing happens without someone's mind deliberately willing it to happen. There are no exceptions to this. Separation did not happen without someone choosing it. Atonement does not happen without someone choosing it. Sickness does not happen without someone choosing it. Healing does not happen without someone choosing it. Everything thus serves a PURPOSE. Everything is being USED. Everything has a. . .

134. Everything real is permanently miraculous

"Each Soul knows God completely. This IS the miraculous power of the Soul. The fact that each Soul has this power completely is a fact that is entirely alien to human thinking, in which if any ONE has everything, there is nothing LEFT. God's miracles are as total as His Thought, because they ARE His thoughts. God shines in them. . .

133. God caused you and still loves you

""I am forever an Effect of God. " "Father, I was created in Your Mind, a holy Thought that never left its home. I am forever Your Effect, and You forever and forever are my Cause. As You created me I have remained. Where You established me I still abide, and all Your attributes abide in me, because it is Your. . .

132. The problem of over-simplifying oneness

"And reason now can lead you to the logical conclusion of your union. It must extend, as you extended when you joined. " Some of us like to describe reality as oneness, or perhaps that "its all God", or "non-duality". A state with no separations or differences. But there is a problem with this. If you take something and you "boil. . .

131. Reason, logic and why there is no world

When something is logical, you start with a premise, and then as the nature of this premise "extends", it produces logical conclusions. The conclusions that will come from this premise are really established in the premise itself. The limitations or scope of the premise determines what can come from it, and what comes from it is completely in accord with. . .

130. You cannot see both worlds!

There is a clear teaching in ACIM that there are TWO worlds, and you can ONLY see one of the two in its entirety at any given time. Seeing one, REQUIRES you NOT TO SEE the other. You CANNOT see both of them in full simultaneously. And each of them uses a different KIND of vision, designed ONLY to see. . .

129. Unwillingness is the ego's version of free will

"An unwilling will does not mean anything, because it is a contradiction in terms which actually leaves nothing. You can make yourself powerless only in a way that has NO MEANING AT ALL. When you think you are unwilling to will with God, you are not thinking. God's will IS thought. It cannot be contradicted by thought. " "And His Sons,. . .

128. The course is more than words

While ACIM, as a book, is a collection fo words, these words are twice removed from reality. They are symbols of symbols. Jesus, who wrote the material, was not operating on a level of symbols upon symbols, or even a level of symbols. He is operating from a level of total awareness and experience of truth. He is in heaven,. . .

127. Undoing effects by removing the cause

Cause produces effects. This is God's permanent law, without exception. It applies everywhere always. There is a secret to performing miracles based on this, resulting in the undoing of effects. This is directly tied into the Atonement and The Miracle. "the word "atone" really means "undo. " (remove illusory effects) "The miracle does nothing. All it does is to undo (removes. . .

126. Is the dream dreaming you?

Whatever you believe is the cause of you, you believe is your creator. God is the cause of you, being your creator. When you displace causality and project it outside of yourself, onto the dream world that you are causing, you believe that the world is the cause of you. This now means that you think the world is your. . .
