The simplicity and beauty of A Course in Miracles (acim) really shines through one of its major principles: The Law of Cause and Effect. This is different. ACIM answers not only why things are the way they are with the mind, but also how to implement these thoughts corrections necessary to change your own life. What it ultimately comes down to is the decision to fix the thoughts and return home, or the choice while staying in the world, to modify beliefs.
Affirmations are not part of A Course in Miracles as they are not necessary and here is why: There’s a”wrong” ego head, along with a”right” ego mind, each of which are still a part of the exact same self indulgent side of the split mind. Inside the mind (error), the wrong side is all of the negative judgments; and the ideal side is all the negative judgments trying to convince you how wonderful it is to live here in this negative world. Neither is the fact of your nature nor where you’re currently trying to reunite your mind, according to ACIM.
The Law of Cause and Effect is that: According to the mind you use as trigger, you will see the corresponding effect. Ideas do not leave their origin: You. A person is feeling the effects of being”poor,” or deficiency, in this world and wants to change their faith to now have”rich” (abundance, prosperity, money) show up. The two”bad” and”rich” are conclusions of the ego using it as trigger which can only create self effect. Ego being an unstable idea system, what you select as”rich” will finally go and you wind up back with”poor.” It is only a matter of”when.”
It asks you to choose between two things within the ego illusion and not to pick out of the illusion. This is in contrast to choosing correction of their mind (bias ) where the two”poor” and”wealthy” do not exist. An option for correction of their brain makes it possible for the Holy Spirit Right Mind to be your trigger which affects the you in this world it does not have the consequences because the ego can not relate you imagine. It endings senseless stress over wealthy and poor and returns some of the head to peace. You will need to choose correction to encounter them although it produces effects in your life here.
Let us look at how this breaks all down into a set of principles based on Cause and Effect. It just has a couple of parts and when understood and used, they could be”mind” correcting! Remember, according to ACIM, the brain is split by the ego’s judgment that we could be separate, also known as the”tiny mad idea,” or the error that never happened. This section of the mind is simply hidden in darkness since it banished itself from Knowledge (Heaven and Oneness) if we forgot to laugh off what could not be true. It didn’t, however, separate.
So in ACIM it is not about beliefs that are changing or affirmations, since the mind still resides in the home with Him and never abandoned God. There are no”belief” disagreements in Love, Oneness, Heaven and Knowledge as every thing is the same, all , and nothing to believe or estimate between. It is about changing rather, that you’re currently listening for interpretation of events within this world or your internal Teacher.
This is because there’s no appropriate and wrong mind of another method of thinking, where the simplicity of use is evident in ACIM. You give up that which you want. We and we do it all the time and it, respectively with the ego beliefs themselves. This says it all. In ACIM, there is not anything to forgive since no error has occurred, i.e., no separation occurred. What you are doing is just returning God, in which it never left, and also to its natural state of calmness mind. To do this is merely a choice of which side of this split mind to listen to for interpretation of events and turning across the judgments you do not need to the Holy Spirit Right Mind for correction (forgiveness).
The Holy Spirit would be the solution to the separation placed in the mind by God and each answer is there waiting for you. True Perception, forgiveness, salvation and atonement are words which are interchangeable. You need to be willing to utilize the Holy Spirit Right Mind for interpretation of occasions and do the actual work of giving conclusions (beliefs) to this side of their head, through your decision maker, since you do not want them.
It truly is that easy and only confusing because of the belief that the only choice is between self judgments of”bad” and”wealthy,” to use the earlier example, rather than knowing about this third alternative being available. Relinquish both for correction of their mind and the choice for True Perception is to choose neither ego judgment. This is exactly what is required to return the mind.
ACIM is aimed at the decision maker in the mind. The point is you have a choice of which side of their mind use for interpretation and to obey. That is all that happened to begin with. It was a decision believe, to listen and select judgments of the sin and the ego that separation happened, guilt and fear. Judgments could be dismissed as readily as you dismiss.
