104. 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. . .

103. Forgiving God is necessary to undo the separation

While doing a fervent forgiveness process, I started to think of my relationship with God. This is where things get juicy. We might not think of whether we are really loving God because we typically are not aware of God, he's not exactly popping up in front of our faces or coming along to trigger us. But there is certainly. . .

102. To forgive the body is to overlook it, which heals it

"To forgive is to OVERLOOK. " Your mind in its natural healthy state, extends outwards and joins with other minds, connecting to them intimately. Your mind extends past your body, past the body of others, and joins with the holiness in them. It shares itself with them and thus unites with the Holy Spirit in them. But if your mind is. . .

101. The perfect choice

"Real choice is no illusion. But the world has none to offer. " Whenever you are presented with a choice in this world, you'll find it always entails an impossible situation. It's not "you" that is making choices difficult, it is the nature of the world. "It is the world you see that is impossible. " Option A will offer something which. . .

100. Life sucks and then you wake up

The world was made to die. It is hell. Bad shit happens, sooner or later. Everything breaks down, suffers, dies in the end. It's an insane world. However. When a whole shit ton of bad shite happens, and it keeps coming, at first it seems to attack all the defenses you made against its nature. All your safeties are called. . .

99. You don't have to feel the ego emotions

If I am upset, I must be mistaken, and I must have chosen wrongly.   "I must have made a wrong decision because I'm not at peace. "   If I am feeling anything other than love, joy, happiness, peace, then I've made a wrong decision. And it was me who decided it, meaning that I decided not to be happy. . .

98. Who is causing what to whom?

The whole problem with false perception is really just one of confusion about "what is the cause. " Or more to the point, who is causing it. We could rephrase that as "I don't know what God (cause) is. " In the separation there was a disassociation from the role of "causer" or chooser (creator), and the ownership and responsibility of this. . .

97. Your defenses don't save you, they attack you

"If I defend myself I am attacked. " "My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability. " "Defense do what they would defend. " "In my defenselessness lies my safety. " It's interesting but, when we try to defend ourselves, under the belief that we are making ourselves more protected, more safe, more secure, we ACTUALLY are undermining ourselves and attacking ourselves. So now self. . .

96. Love solves all problems

It may appear there are many problems, all of which are different and seem to call for very specific solutions. The form of each problem tempts you with its appearance, to believe it is unique and unlike anything else, calling for a response that must be dictated by the form of the problem. This suggests to you the only solution. . .

95. You are safe in God

"You are safe in God, dreaming of exile, but perfectly capable of waking to reality. " The world we're in offers no safety. It is a world of threat, danger, risk, attack, conflict, vulnerability and damage. "The world is a picture of the crucifixion of God's Son. " "The world was made as an attack on God. " "The world of bodies is. . .

94. The power of your free-will choice

Jesus merely asks us to choose again. To keep choosing again until we make the correct choice. "I must have made a wrong decision because I am not at peace. I made the decision myself but I can choose otherwise. " He tells us that whenever we are not at peace, ie suffering in any form, it is because we have. . .

93. Ego emotions are fake human feelings

There are various feelings you can seem to experience, but they are not real feelings. When you're in the ego, lost and confused, you'll discover a wide variety of different feelings. Ego emotions include sadness, grief, loss, frustration, anger, excitement, guilt, fear, dread, anxiety, worry, hurt, shame, embarrassment, unworthiness, and all kinds of other sensations. These all include some element. . .

92. Thus is the body healed by miracles

A collection of quotes from A Course in Miracles about how and why the body is healed by miracles. "Thus is the body healed by miracles BECAUSE they show the mind MADE sickness, and employed the body to be victim, or EFFECT of what it made. ""The BODY is healed BECAUSE YOU CAME WITHOUT IT and joined the Mind in which all. . .

91. The fake emotions of the ego

The only real feelings are those whose nature is in alignment with God's, and which apply to and are shared with everyone equally, openly and freely. These include love, joy, happiness, peace. There are other feelings, which arise in and of the ego, such as guilt, fear, grief, loss, unhappiness, sadness, gratification, loneliness, abandonment, unworthiness, etc. In every case, all. . .

90. You don't have to go through death

Everything about this world points in the direction of death. "All its roads but lead to disappointment, nothingness and death. " It was designed to do so. Our job as beings from another world, is to demonstrate that we are not under any of these laws, all of them can be broken, and that it is possible to reconfigure the body. . .

89. The universal curriculum

It may seem at first that all events in this world are random, sometimes negative, difficult, cruel and should not be happening. We try to avoid some events and promote others. We want the bad stuff to go away and escape into only the good stuff, to prolong the good stuff as long as possible and have some sense of. . .

88. The fearful compulsion to save

When a situation presents itself, on a physical level, with signs and symptoms and effects that you can see and touch, it seems to be real to you. If you do not overlook it, they form evidence and proof that something seems to be going wrong. On the basis of this you can't help but go into fear as a. . .

87. Are miracles real? Can permadeath be reversed?

Some people don't believe in miracles. Some don't think A Course in Miracles is about the kind of miracles Jesus was known for, and some are quite convinced they have nothing to do with healing the body or being able to cure all forms of suffering. Mainly this is because of sin. "The world of bodies is the world of. . .
