31. 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. . .

30. The health and healing of the body

A collection of A Course in Miracles quotes. . . "The body can be made a home like this, BECAUSE it lacks foundation in the truth. And yet, BECAUSE it does, it can be seen as NOT your home, but merely as an aid to help you reach the home where God abides. With THIS as purpose IS the ***body healed***. It is. . .

29. 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. . .

28. 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. . .

27. There is no life outside of heaven

"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. . .

26. 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. . .

25. 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. . .

24. Miracles are expressions of power and life

A miracle, is actually a THING. It's discreet thing. Like a ball of energy, if you will, expressing from you and causing something to happen. "Miracles are a spark of life. " "Miracles are energizers". "Miracle impulses". "Miracles are thought creations. " There is actually a SOMETHING that arises out of the christ mind and expresses and transfers from the giver, TO. . .

23. 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. . .

22. 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. . .

21. ACIM teaches you are immortal and resurrection returns you to eternal life

A Course in Miracles is a teaching us to leave a dream of mortality, and return to a state of immortality. Everything in the course points to this. You are not merely substituting one limited illusion for another. You are literally substituting DEATH for ETERNAL LIFE. That is why the curriculum culminates in RESURRECTION. Resurrection is the return to ETERNAL. . .

20. Nothing can affect your immortality

If you are affected in any way, it is not YOU who is affected, it is an illusion (body etc). And if it is affected in any way, you are trying to use it to prove you can be affected. You cannot be affected, you are immortal. So you're faking it, and it's pointless. You can't change the fact you. . .

19. ACIM teaches you to claim your immortality

It may not be obvious, but A Course In Miracles is basically trying to get you out of a state of mortality, into a state of immortality. Think about all the ways that it does this. That you are not at the effect of the world. That nothing in the world causes you or brings oppression or makes you sick. . .

18. Death is the opposite of life, choose again

"Death is the symbol of the fear of God. His Love is blotted out in the idea, which holds it from awareness like a shield held up to obscure the sun. " "It holds an image of the Son of God in which he is "laid to rest" in devastation's arms" "All forms of sickness even unto death are physical expressions. . .

17. 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. . .

16. You are permanently immortal and you can prove it

"Against this sense of temporary existence, the Soul offers the knowledge of permanence and unshakeable BEING. No one who has experienced the revelation of this can ever fully believe in the ego again. How can its meager offering to you prevail against the glorious gift of God?" "You look for permanence in the impermanent; for love where there is none;. . .

15. The powerful demonstration of Jesus' resurrection

The powerful demonstration of Jesus' resurrection

"We said before that the purpose of the Resurrection was to "demonstrate that no amount of misperception has any influence at all on a Son of God. " This ***demonstration*** ***EXONERATES*** those who misperceive, BY ESTABLISHING BEYOND DOUBT that they have NOT hurt anyone. " The curriculum of ACIM ends in resurrection. Resurrection is the final state prior to going to Heaven. . . .

14. Jesus redefines the meaning of life and death

In A Course in Miracles, Jesus gives a new definition for what is life, and what is death. He does not mean that life is "the stuff in this world" and that death is "when bodies are totally dead and lie on the ground decaying. " He has a totally different view of life and death because he recognizes what things. . .
