7 Ways A Course In Miracles COULD MAKE You…
The beauty and simplicity of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) really shines through one of its major principles: REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect. This is different from regulations of Attraction, a topic on which so much has been written about these last couple of years. ACIM answers not merely why things will be the way they’re with the mind, but also how to implement these mind corrections needed to change your life. What it ultimately comes down to may be the choice to change beliefs while staying in this world, or the choice to correct the mind and return home.
Affirmations are not section of A Course in Miracles as they are not essential and here’s why: There exists a “wrong” ego mind, and a “right” ego mind, both of which are still the main same ego side of the split mind. Within the ego mind (error), the wrong side is all the negative judgments; and the right side is all the negative judgments trying to convince you how wonderful it is to live within this negative world. Neither may be the truth of one’s nature nor where you are trying to return your brain, according to ACIM.
REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect is this: In line with the actually use as cause, you will see the corresponding effect. Ideas usually do not leave their source: You.
Let’s utilize this example:
Someone is feeling the effects to be “poor,” or lack, in this world and really wants to change their beliefs to now have “rich” (abundance, prosperity, money) arrive. Both “poor” and “rich” are judgments of the ego using it as cause which can only produce ego effect. Ego as an unstable thought system, everything you choose as “rich” will eventually go and you end up back with “poor.” It’s only a question of “when.”
The ego’s choice system is: (1) one or the other: (2) poor or rich; and, (3) ego or God. It asks one to choose between a couple of things within the ego illusion rather than to choose out of the illusion.
This is as opposed to choosing correction of the mind (forgiveness) where both “poor” and “rich” usually do not exist. A choice for correction of the mind allows the Holy Spirit Right Mind to be your cause which affects the you nowadays; however, it does not have the consequences you imagine since the ego cannot relate. It returns some of your brain to peace and ends senseless worry over rich and poor. In addition, it produces effects that you experienced here but you will need to choose correction to experience them.
Let’s look at how ACIM breaks this all into a simple group of principles based on Cause and Effect. It only has a few components so when understood and used, they can be “mind” correcting!
Remember, according to ACIM, the mind is split by the ego’s judgment that we could be separate, generally known as the “tiny mad idea,” or the error that never occurred. This portion of the mind is merely hidden in darkness because it banished itself from Knowledge (Heaven and Oneness) when we forgot to laugh off what cannot be true. It didn’t, however, separate.
So in ACIM it isn’t about affirmations or changing beliefs, as the mind never left God and still resides at home with Him. You can find no “belief” judgments in Love, Oneness, Heaven and Knowledge as everything is the same, all one, and nothing to trust or judge between.
Instead, it is all about changing your internal Teacher or rather, who you are hearing for interpretation of events in this world. The only real change is in the decision between your split mind (error) of the ego or the Holy Spirit Right Mind (correction) as that internal Teacher.
That’s where the ease of use is evident in ACIM because there’s no convincing the ego wrong and right mind of another thought process. You simply give up what you no longer want. We take action on a regular basis with ego stuff; and now we just take action with the ego beliefs themselves.
This says everything: Forgiveness is correction of the mind. In ACIM, you’ll find nothing to forgive because no error has happened, i.e., no separation happened. What you are really doing is simply returning your mind to God, where it never left, and to its natural state of peace. To achieve that is simply either which side of the split mind to hear for interpretation of events and turning over the judgments so long as want to the Holy Spirit Right Mind for correction (forgiveness).
The Holy Spirit may be the solution to the separation placed in the mind by God and every answer will there be looking forward to you. Atonement, forgiveness, salvation and True Perception are other words that are synonymous. You need to be willing to utilize the Holy Spirit Right Mind for interpretation of events and do the specific work of giving judgments (beliefs) to this side of the mind, via your decision maker, because you no longer want them.
It really is that simple and only confusing as a result of belief that the only choice is between ego judgments of “poor” and “rich,” to use the earlier example, and not understanding about this third option being available. The decision for True Perception is to choose neither ego judgment and relinquish both for correction of the mind. This is exactly what is takes to come back the mind to God.
ACIM is targeted at your choice maker in your brain. The complete point is that you’ve got a selection of which side of the mind to hear and use for interpretation. That is all that ever happened in the first place. It was a choice to pay attention, believe and choose judgments of the ego that separation happened and the ensuing sin, guilt and fear. Judgments could be dismissed as easily as you dismiss anything else you don’t want because they are not real.
Two things stop you from relinquishing judgments: (1) your attachment to them to be true and real; and, (2) not acknowledging the method that you feel keeps them hidden which means you don’t realize they’re judgments.
You do not “feel” in Heaven, Knowledge and Oneness. It is an event shared by One.
The decision maker is the mechanism between your two sides of the split mind. It is neutral, an observer and is something you should employ to watch your brain and the judgments being made by the ego. When you realize you have used something from the ego error of the wrong or right mind, just be ready to hand them to the perfect solution is, or the correction, of the Holy Spirit Right Mind. It takes care of the rest as the Atonement or solution is already there. No affirmations are necessary. You are simply giving up that which you no longer want. It really is, and certainly can, be so easy.
Form and Content:
The last element of know from A Course in Miracles is form and content. Form is this world and everything inside it. In ACIM, form does not matter and is section of the “beliefs” to be turned over. However, you use everything in form, together with the judgments in your thoughts, as the curriculum of what things to start for correction (forgiveness).
What does matter is content and in ACIM, content may be the mind. The mind you are using for interpretation (perception) of people, places, and things, etc., counts for everything. It is possible to only have one master: (1) the Holy Spirit Right Mind (correction); or, (2) the ego wrong mind (error) and which includes both interpretations of the ego mind.
In conclusion, think about the simplicity of ACIM that is a Course in training your mind how to perceive properly. You must return the mind to peace as the Kingdom of God is peace and you cannot start to see the doorway from judgment. You only see peace in peace even though sharing peace with everyone.
All ACIM says is you have the willingness to learn how to do that, study the ideas and then put it into practice. un curso de milagros The help you need will arrive; but you, my pal, must do the work of this inward journey back into the mind.
The Law of Cause and Effect may be the form, or mind, you’re using for interpretation will be your effect in this world. It’ll affect you in different ways by returning your mind back to back again to peace where you eventually start to see the illusion of choice, because no separation occurred, and choose to give it up forever.
