7 METHODS FOR GETTING Through To Your A TRAINING COURSE In MiraclesApril 25, 2023
The beauty and simplicity of A TRAINING COURSE in Miracles (ACIM) really shines through among its major principles: REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect. That is different from the Law of Attraction, a subject on which so much has been discussed these last few years. ACIM answers not only why things will be the way they are with the mind, but also how to implement these mind corrections had a need to change your daily life. What it ultimately comes down to may be the choice to change beliefs while staying in this world, or the choice to correct your brain and return home.
Affirmations are not part of A Course in Miracles as they are not necessary and here’s why: There exists a “wrong” ego mind, and a “right” ego mind, both of which are still part of the 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 really is to live within this negative world. Neither may be the truth of one’s nature nor what your location is trying to return your mind, according to ACIM.
The Law of Cause and Effect is this: In line with the mind you use as cause, you will see the corresponding effect. Ideas usually do not leave their source: You.
Let’s use this example:
Someone is feeling the effects of being “poor,” or lack, in this world and wants to change their beliefs to will 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. un curso de milagros Ego being an unstable thought system, what you choose as “rich” will eventually go and you find yourself 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 in contrast to choosing correction of your brain (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 in this world; however, it does not have the effects you imagine since the ego cannot relate. It returns some of the mind to peace and ends senseless worry over rich and poor. In addition, it produces effects in your life here but you will need to choose correction to experience them.
Let’s look at how ACIM breaks this all down into a simple group of principles based on Cause and Effect. It only has a few components so when understood and used, they could be “mind” correcting!
Remember, in accordance with ACIM, your brain is split by the ego’s judgment that we could be separate, often known as the “tiny mad idea,” or the error that never occurred. This part of the mind is merely hidden in darkness because it banished itself from Knowledge (Heaven and Oneness) when we forgot to laugh off what could not be true. It did not, however, separate.
So in ACIM it isn’t about affirmations or changing beliefs, because the mind never left God but still resides aware of Him. There are no “belief” judgments in Love, Oneness, Heaven and Knowledge as everything is the same, all one, and nothing to believe or judge between.
Instead, it is 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 choice between the split mind (error) of the ego or the Holy Spirit Right Mind (correction) as that internal Teacher.
This is where the simplicity is evident in ACIM because there’s no convincing the ego wrong and right mind of another way of thinking. You simply quit what you no longer want. We take action on a regular basis with ego stuff; and today we just take action with the ego beliefs themselves.
This says it all: Forgiveness is correction of your brain. In ACIM, there is nothing to forgive because no error has happened, i.e., no separation happened. What you are doing is simply returning your mind to God, where it never left, also to its natural state of peace. To achieve that is simply a choice of which side of the split mind to listen to for interpretation of events and turning over the judgments you no longer want to the Holy Spirit Right Mind for correction (forgiveness).
The Holy Spirit is the solution to the separation put into your brain by God and every answer will there be waiting for you. Atonement, forgiveness, salvation and True Perception are other words which are synonymous. You have to be willing to utilize the Holy Spirit Right Mind for interpretation of events and do the specific work of giving judgments (beliefs) to the side of your brain, via your decision maker, because you no more want them.
It really is that easy and only confusing due to belief that the only real choice is between ego judgments of “poor” and “rich,” to utilize the earlier example, and not understanding concerning this third option being available. The choice for True Perception is to choose neither ego judgment and relinquish both for correction of the mind. This is what is takes to return your brain to God.
ACIM is aimed at your choice maker in the mind. The whole point is that you’ve got a selection of which side of your brain to listen to 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.
A couple of things stop you from relinquishing judgments: (1) your attachment to them as being true and real; and, (2) not acknowledging how you feel keeps them hidden and that means you don’t realize they are judgments.
You don’t “feel” in Heaven, Knowledge and Oneness. It really is an experience shared by One.
The decision maker is the mechanism between the two sides of the split mind. It is neutral, an observer and is something you must employ to watch the mind and the judgments being made by the ego. Once you realize you have used something from the ego error of the wrong or right mind, you need to be willing to hand them to the solution, or the correction, of the Holy Spirit Right Mind. It requires care of the others as the Atonement or solution has already been there. No affirmations are necessary. You are simply giving up that which you no more want. It really is, and certainly can, be so easy.
Form and Content:
The last component to know from the Course in Miracles is form and content. Form is this world and everything inside it. In ACIM, form will not matter and is the main “beliefs” to be turned over. However, you utilize everything in form, combined with the judgments in your thoughts, because the curriculum of what things to start for correction (forgiveness).
What does matter is content and in ACIM, content is 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, consider the simplicity of ACIM which is a Course in training your brain how exactly to perceive properly. You need to return the mind to peace because the Kingdom of God is peace and you also cannot see the doorway from judgment. You only see peace in peace and while sharing peace with everyone.
All ACIM says is you have the willingness to understand how to do that, study the ideas and put it into practice. The help you need will arrive; but you, my friend, must do the task of the inward journey back to the mind.
The Law of Cause and Effect is the form, or mind, you’re using for interpretation will undoubtedly be your effect in this world. It’ll affect you in other ways by returning your brain back to back to peace where you eventually see the illusion of preference, because no separation occurred, and choose to give it up forever.
