91. Ego rebounds and not wanting to wake up

When I write or read ACIM stuff, after a while I'll start to feel upset. I may feel overwhelmed, or agitated, even hurt, and might feel like I want to cry. It's almost like someone just said a whole string of lies about me. I look at what part of me feels this way and I acknowledge what it is. . .

90. 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. . .

89. The world is false perception, it will disappear

The "physical world", exists only IN false perception. This is why the body's eyes can see it. The body's eyes are rooted in false perception permanently. "Everything the body sees is an illusion. " "These eyes made not to see will never see. " "The body is not the means by which the real world can be seen. " "Eyes perceive falsely" The. . .

87. Changing your perception of the world

At first we believe physical sight is perception. And everything the body's eyes look upon is taken as real. And thus we learn that the world appears to be an inherently bad place. Regardless of trying to be optimistic or positive, bad shit happens frequently. And people seem to die. Assuming that everything we see is real, we might not. . .

86. The translation of the world

There are some parts of the course which suggest that if you will just change HOW you look at the world, or what meaning you GIVE it, suddenly seemingly horrifying scenes are interpreted as healed and lovely. Obviously this loveliness MUST transcend the FORM of what is happening, because a broken leg is still a broken leg, and an explosion. . .

85. The world is in your mind

When we are introduced to this world, it is through false perception. That means we SEEM to "see it with" the body's eyes, and we believe the body's way of seeing. And the body shows us the world of form, which is cruel and dark and a place of death. We do not even realize our mind is in any. . .

84. What is a miracle?

Ok let's break down this passage and find out what it's saying. "A miracle is a correction. " Before the correction, your mind is in a state of confusion, darkness ego. You are on a lower rung of the ladder. The correction corrects your mind and raises you up to a higher rung on the ladder. The false belief, mistaken perception,. . .

82. Your body does not exist

How do you know that you have a body? Do you see it with your body's eyes? Do you hear it with your body's ears? Do you taste it with the body's tongue, touch it with the body's flesh, and smell it with the body's nose? Is this not a completely circular logic within a closed system? You are using. . .

81. Complete forgiveness is accepting atonement

In ACIM, Jesus spells out that forgiveness and atonement are the same thing, and so is true perception. These are all a state in which there is recognition, accurate perception, and a forgiving attitude which sees that there is no sin. Or moreso, it is the acknowledgment and re-acceptance of God's truth and the willingness to accept your permanent innocence,. . .

80. The world of sin

"The world of bodies is the world of sin for only if there were a body is sin possible. " The physical world is made of the idea of sin. "The body is the idea of sin made flesh and projected outwards. " Sin is the idea of attempting to attack God. "The world was made as an attack on God". Physical. . .

79. The body does not forgive

The body's eyes do not forgive. They do not overlook any illusions. All they see is the forms of error, and everything they look upon is an illusion. They literally are incapable of seeing past illusions at all. Which means they cannot forgive, at all. The body's eyes are completely unforgiving. They are blinded by perception of form. They are. . .

78. A healed mind in a body can still see suffering

There is a myth in the ACIM community relating to how perception works. It's based on the belief that we only have one perception, one outlook. There's us, in the body, perceiving. We read stuff about how perception shifts and how it changes what we see. So we think ok, my one perception will shift and it will show me. . .

77. Learning to forgive with Christ Vision

"To forgive is to OVERLOOK" "Everything the body sees is an illusion. " Years ago when I began the course, I thought I understood forgiveness. I thought it basically meant not blaming people, and trying to learn that everyone is innocent. It's kind of that. But over time and with deeper study my grasp of forgiveness kept expanding. I realized at. . .

76. Truth from the top down

With A Course in Miracles, for most of us the journey starts in darkness. The lessons are designed to gradually lift us up out of the darkness into the light. As we read the text and learn of its instructions, we gradually piece together a clearer picture of what is true and real. Our learning begins to generalize. Things which. . .

75. 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. . .
