167. True healing is the undoing of guilt

All sickness is just a form of GUILT. And removing this guilt makes sickness IMPOSSIBLE. Guilt induces sickness because it demands punishment. It is an agreement to suffer. It is the result of NOT forgiving sin, thus believing sin is real. And once sin is real, you must become guilty and attacked, self destructive, suicidal, ready to suffer and die. . . .

166. Shine your light into your brother's mind to heal them

You are quite literally A LIGHT. "The Thought God holds of you is like a star, unchangeable in an eternal sky. " Like a giant magnificent powerful light bulb. You have a brightness. You shine. You radiate light. You are a light being, shining brightly in heaven. "Who is the light of the world except God's Son?" "It is not humility. . .

165. When I am healed I am not healed alone

What if when you become healed, the whole world is transformed in some way and is a little lighter? This may sound radical, but it does appear to be supported in the course in various ways. Jesus speaks of how when you are healed, others cannot be omitted from your healing. Jesus speaks of how if you change your mind. . .

164. The power of choice leads to salvation

In ACIM, there is a central pillar which was not clear to me before. It is an unexpected strategy for acheiving salvation, which is pointed to and reinforced over and over again. And in effect is the ONLY way. We may be familiar with the idea that ATONEMENT is the goal. Yes it is. The course also states that atonement,. . .

163. What is evil? Does the devil exist?

There is no real evil in God's reality so it does not really exist. But evil is an illusion of something being true that isn't. It's what you get when reality is confused with illusions, and the truth is confused with what is false. Everything becomes switched around. You mistake an illusory thing for a real thing. You think stuff. . .

162. Miracle Impulses

I suspect that miracle impulses are not mere “urges” or “compulsions” to love, but rather I suspect they are actual “pulses” of an energetic expression, like a ball of light or a little spark of life force which a person transmits. And I think these pulses can be expressed/created by loving minds and transfer to others, causing instant healing. I. . .

161. Giving and receiving are one - how to heal

Giving and receiving must occur simultaneously. This means that in order to receive love and healing, you must give love and healing. Which in turn means, that the only way for you to be healed, is to extend healing to others. Which therefore means, that your willingness to heal your brothers heals you. "I will be healed as I let. . .

160. No one attacks from their right mind

Those who are sane do not attack, are not sick, cannot hurt or be hurt, are immortal and invulnerable, recognize their oneness with others, have no interest in murder, cannot suffer or be unhappy, can only will with God, and can only heal. Nothing harmful or hurtful can come from a person in their right mind. When a person is. . .

159. Are you a blessing or a curse?

I'm learning recently that my mind and attitude may well affect other people. I think this is part of being more responsible for what my mind is doing "to itself", and extends to others, in that whatever I am doing to myself I am also attempting to do to others. Whatever sense of sin or guilt I have about myself. . .

158. Healing the split mind

When your mind is whole, you are in your right mind, and not in two minds. Being in two minds is what happens when your mind is split in half. What happens in the state of split mindedness is quite interesting. It's not merely that you split off a part of your mind. As you introduce a split, ie a. . .

157. Mind seems to sleep, dream of a world, then wakes up

This is a pretty deep and abstract passage from lesson 167, “There is one life and that I share with God. ” It speaks of how immortal mind is permanently awake, it thinks of being asleep in which it dreams of a world of spacetime, everything in that dream is nothing with no consequences (there is no world) because it’s a. . .

156. 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. . .

155. The body can and must be healed

"***Now is the body healed*** because the source of sickness has been opened to relief. " "***The body CAN be healed*** by its EFFECTS, which are as limitless as is itself. " "Now in the hands made gentle by His touch, the Holy Spirit lays a picture of a DIFFERENT you. It is a ***picture of a body still***, for what you. . .

154. Soul, spirit, mind, being, sons, egos, separation

If you look at the various things ACIM says, it becomes clearer and makes more sense when you don't think of "mind" or "one mind" or "christ mind" as being the highest or deepest level of existence. We need to distinguish that mind IS NOT the same thing as spirit, soul, SON or being. For example, there is a distinction. . .

153. The purpose of removing blocks to awareness

Your natural condition is that you are a powerful, loving, mind-causal, capable, miraculous being, who can do literally anything. "There is nothing my holiness cannot do. " "There is no order of difficulty in miracles. " That "nothing" is utterly literal and all encompassing. Anything you can possibly imagine you can do, no matter how radical. When there are blocks to awareness,. . .

151. The body needs no healing

"The body needs NO healing. But the mind that thinks it IS a body is sick indeed!" This is a difficult one to accept. To suggest the bodies needs NO healing, is not an attempt to make it "ok" that bodies are in "conditions" of sickness. It's not saying that "you should not heal the body" or attempt to be. . .

150. Healing the body

The following passage from “if I defend myself I am attacked”, speaks of ”confusing” or merging mind and body, a level confusion, or a mis-identification of what you are. Seeing what’s in the mind as if it’s in the body, projected onto the body makes the body sick. (“Sickness is anger taken out upon the body. ” “All sickness comes from. . .
