129. Who am I behind my reactions to the world?

Who am I behind my reactions to the world?

The more I learn that I am responsible for everything I experience, the clearer it becomes that anything I experience is not "because of" the world. It used to be that everything I experienced seemed to be a reaction to the world, seemingly caused by it. I could not separate out myself from any of it, and any upsets or. . .

128. What is the meaning of the world?

"The idea for today is, of course, the reason why a meaningless world is impossible. What God did not create does not exist. And everything that does exist exists as He created it. The world you see has nothing to do with reality. It is of your own making, and it does not exist. " Meaningfulness is of God. Meaning is. . .

127. Rethinking the cold-hearted world

When I came to A Course in Miracles, it was through Gary Renard's books, which I later learned were deeply based on Ken W's teachings. They also presented a view that was championed as "non-duality". The books spoke of the world as being a shitty place, a hell hole, psycho planet, a world of death and suffering, spinning its wheels. . .

126. We must learn to love the real world

Below is a collection of quotes I've been gathering relating to the world and the real world. I did this to better understand what the course is trying to get us to see about the world. It is clear that there is a world we made, but that there are two very different ways to look at it. The world. . .

125. How can you accept the world?

Is it possible to accept the world? First of all, we have to keep in mind that we have perception, and our perception of the world is going to change depending on our mindset. This renders the world not really a "static" objective thing. So as we attempt to be more accepting, most likely our perception is going to change,. . .

124. How a teacher of God sees the world

You are outside of the world, looking in upon it from the outside in. From this perspective, the body is given no value at all. The world is recognized as completely fictional. The body is used temporarily only as a tool for sensing the vibrations of the illusory world, so as to detect its current configuration and seemingly interact with. . .

123. 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. . .

122. Only the body makes the world seem real

Here is the main problem we all face day after day. The body makes an ILLUSORY WORLD seem real. The world is an illusion of a world, a picture of crucifixion, a vision of hell, a depiction of total lies, holding not one single shred of truth and is designed to tempt you believe that illusions of death are reality. . . .

121. Forgiving a world of appearances

The physical universe is not what it appears to be. It is a wall, constructed of a mad idea of sin, formed from lies, to tempt you to believe a great many horrible things are happening. It has been inserted as a gap of hell, in between you and yourself, between you and God. It depicts every form of suffering. . .

120. The fall of man and the atonement plan

For many, ACIM is about self help and doing the lessons and trying to get back to a simplified idea of God/reality. But the scenario of what is happening in this world, why we're here, and what we're returning to, is part of a big picture "story" that I don't really see talked about a whole lot. At least not. . .

119. Mind is projecting the body and world fresh right now

"When he said “mind is the builder,” he did not realize that it is only what it is building NOW that really creates the future. The past, in itself, does not have the ability to do this. Whenever we move from one instant to the next, the previous one no longer exists. " Here's a little statement which correlates to the. . .

118. 20 Reasons why God did NOT create the Earth

"The world you see is an illusion of a world, God did not create it, for what He creates must be eternal as Himself. " 1. God is permanent. Earth is not. Earth will end. 2. God is eternal. Earth is not. Earth does not last forever. 3. God can only create by extending himself, and so whatever He creates has. . .

117. What you believe is true will show you a world

"You HAVE been wrong about the world, because you have misjudged YOURSELF. From such a twisted reference point, what COULD you see? All vision starts WITH THE PERCEIVER, who judges what is true and what is false. And what he judges false, HE DOES NOT SEE. You who would JUDGE reality CANNOT see it, for whenever judgment enters, reality has. . .

116. Christ vision is inclusive, body vision is exclusive

"Christ vision" . . . "beholds a light beyond the body" . . . "looks on everyone, on every circumstance, all happenings and events, without the slightest fading of the light it sees. " Christ Vision is an all inclusive way to see. It's as if to say, you are able to see the entire picture without anything being hidden. You are able to look. . .

115. God created the world? Really? Like, really?!

"The world you see is an illusion of a world, God did not create it, for what He creates must be eternal as Himself. Yet there is nothing in the world you see that will endure forever. Some things will last in time a little while longer than others. But the time will come when all things visible will have. . .

112. Why there is no world

"What seems to be the opposite of (eternal) life is merely sleeping. When the mind elects to be what it is not, and to assume an alien power which it does not have, a foreign state it cannot enter, or a false condition not within its Source, it merely seems to go to sleep a while. It dreams of time;. . .
