Jesus's redefinition of terms continues to amaze me. When you suddenly realize that he has a whole different MEANING to a term, it suddenly opens up a whole box of insights. For example "The world of bodies is the world of sin. For only if there were a body is sin possible. " Jesus says that bodies are needed for sin. . . .
There's a perspective on the world and upon our minds and beliefs, which is very beautiful. In fact it's quite divine. It's the perspective that God and the Angels would have of what we seem to think is happening here. From their viewpoint of love and joy and compassion, they know that the entire ego thought system is nothing but. . .
If the EFFECTS of sin remain and are not healed or undone, there remains PROOF that SIN HAPPENED. This is not good enough. Jesus states clearly that these effects continue to condemn your brother. PHYSICAL SIN has to be undone through miracles. The effects of sin MUST BE REVERSED. Miracles reverse EVERYTHING that the world says can NEVER BE UNDONE. . . .
"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. . .
"There is no sin. Creation is unchanged. " "There IS no guilt in you, for God is blessed in His Son, as the Son is blessed in Him. " "There is no fear in perfect love. " "In the real world, there is no sickness, for there is no separation and no division. " "There is no death because what God created shares His. . .
There is a reason why we believe death is inevitable, and why we think there isn't any other choice. At the beginning of separation from God, we attempted to sin against him. That means we tried to attack God, cause Him, and therefore produce real effects to change Him against His will. This was the Son attempting to be the. . .
"What if you looked within and saw NO sin?" "Let me remember that there is no sin. " "There is no sin. " "There is no sin. Creation is unchanged. " "Before a holy relationship there is no sin. " I asked God, "please forgive me". HS responded, "for what?" Again I remembered, there is no sin. Does this mean God has completely forgiven. . .
This might sound selfish, but most of the course is about you and what you are doing to yourself. It’s you who have attacked yourself. It’s you who needs healing. It’s you who needs to take responsibility for accepting atonement for yourself. It’s you who’s been hurting yourself and choosing suffering. It’s you who has the free will. It’s you. . .
Let's take a closer look at sin and find out why no-one has ever sinned. "While everything that God created is forever without sin and therefore is forever without guilt. " "Your Father created you wholly without sin, wholly without pain, and wholly without suffering of any kind. If you deny Him, you bring sin, pain, and suffering into your OWN. . .
"The world goes against your nature, because it is out of accord with God's laws. The world perceives orders of difficulty in EVERYTHING. This is because the ego perceives nothing as wholly desirable. " Ok. First of all you need to realize the nature of God, in order to realize why this world is totally opposite to his nature. God. . .
Here is something that many people will reject as totally bullshit. But if you will consider it carefully you may see that it makes sense. Your mind is not just inside your body. Your mind is bigger than the universe. The world is inside of it! Therefore your psychological ERRORS have taken the form of PHYSICAL OBJECTS!!! The physical world. . .
In the Kingdom of God, His creations and all of their creations are fully open to each other and share everything lovingly. Each of these beings is made of love and it is through love the they have full access to each other, to join and commune intimately. In this way, communication is sharing and joining and oneness or kinship,. . .
Ego projections boil down to a very, very simple dynamic. 1) I decide what I want to see in someone. 2) I interact with what I now see in them as if I did not put it there. The way I interact with what I see in others, is quite bizarre. It's really insane. I'm trying to accomplish two opposite. . .
FED-UP WITH SUFFERING? PUTTING UP WITH WHAT HAS HAPPENED? TOLERATING PAIN? WANT SOME RELIEF?!!The ego’s thought system is specifically geared to make you suffer for as long as possible. Every time something “happens” in this world, it is symbolic of sin. Sin seems like an irreversible event which, once it has happened, produces inevitable consequences. The consequences are believed to be. . .
The body is the idea of sin. It is an extension of the idea of being separate. The body cannot become sinless in and of itself, although it can be used for a holy purpose. "The body is the ego's idol; the belief in sin made flesh and then projected outward. " - ACIM "At no single instant does the body. . .
"At no single instant does the body exist at all. It is always remembered or anticipated, but never experienced just now. Only its past and future make it seem real. Time controls it entirely, for sin is never present. " - ACIM Although it can seem like you can look at your body "right now" and see it "now", you might. . .
Can you accept the atonement?For the ego, atonement means that you really did something wrong, and now you have to pay for it. This is the idea that you must make up for the losses you caused, because of your guilt. It calls for you to make a sacrifice, to have some portion of yourself or what you value taken. . .
If you have not really sinned, you automatically have no reason to try to get rid of the responsibility for having sinned. If you believe you HAVE really sinned, and believe in your own sinfulness, you will try to escape the EFFECTS of sin. Sin causes guilt, fear, punishment and death. It is condemning. That's a pretty big reason to want. . .
