The sweetness and simplicity of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) really shines through one of its major principles: The Law of Cause and Effect. This really is distinctive from the Law of Attraction, a subject which so much has been discussing these last few years. ACIM answers not only why things are the way they are with your head, but in addition just how to implement these mind corrections needed to alter your life. What it ultimately comes down to is the option to alter beliefs while staying nowadays, or the option to correct your head and return home.
Affirmations aren’t part of A Course in Miracles as they are not necessary and here’s why: There’s a “wrong” ego mind, and a “right” ego mind, both which continue to be area of the same ego side of the split mind. Within the ego mind (error), the wrong side is all of the negative judgments; and the best side is all of the negative judgments attempting to convince you how wonderful it’s to reside within this negative world. Neither is the facts of one’s nature nor where you are attempting to return your mind, in accordance with ACIM.
The Law of Cause and Effect is this: According to the actually use as cause, you might find the corresponding effect. Ideas do not leave their source: You.
Let’s use this example:
Someone is feeling the effects to be “poor,” or lack, nowadays and wants to alter their beliefs to are in possession of “rich” (abundance, prosperity, money) show up. Both “poor” and “rich” are judgments of the ego deploying it as cause which can only produce ego effect. Ego becoming an unstable thought system, everything you choose as “rich” will ultimately go and you end up back with “poor.” It’s merely 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 you to decide on between a few things within the ego illusion and not to decide on out of the illusion.
This really is in comparison to choosing correction of your head (forgiveness) where both “poor” and “rich” do not exist. An option for correction of your head allows the Holy Spirit Right Mind to be your cause which affects the you nowadays; however, it doesn’t have the effects you imagine considering that the ego cannot relate. It returns a percentage of your head to peace and ends senseless worry over rich and poor. Additionally, it produces effects in your life here however you will have to decide on correction to see them.
Let’s look at how ACIM breaks this all down into an easy set of principles centered on Cause and Effect. It only has a few components and when understood and used, they can be “mind” correcting!
Remember, in accordance with ACIM, your head is split by the ego’s judgment that people could be separate, also called the “tiny mad idea,” or the error that never occurred. This percentage of your head is simply hidden in darkness because it banished itself from Knowledge (Heaven and Oneness) once we forgot to laugh off what couldn’t be true. It didn’t, however, separate.
So in ACIM it’s not about affirmations or changing beliefs, because your head never left God and still resides aware of Him. You will find no “belief” judgments in Love, Oneness, Heaven and Knowledge as everything is exactly the same, all one, and nothing to think or judge between.
Instead, it is all about changing your internal Teacher or rather, who you’re playing for interpretation of events in this world. The only change is in the option between the split mind (error) of the ego or the Holy Spirit Right Mind (correction) as that internal Teacher.
This really is where in actuality the simplicity of use is evident in ACIM because there’s no convincing the ego wrong and right mind of another means of thinking. You simply stop trying what so long as want. We do it all the time with ego stuff; and now we only do it with the ego beliefs themselves.
This says it all: Forgiveness is correction of the mind. In ACIM, there is nothing to forgive because no error has happened, i.e., no separation happened. Everything you are doing is simply returning your mind to God, where it never left, and to its natural state of peace. To achieve that is simply a selection which side of the split mind to be controlled by for interpretation of events and turning within the judgments so long as wish to the Holy Spirit Right Mind for correction (forgiveness).
The Holy Spirit is the perfect solution is to the separation put into your head by God and every answer will there be awaiting you. Atonement, forgiveness, salvation and True Perception are other words which are synonymous. You need to be willing to use the Holy Spirit Right Mind for interpretation of events and do the particular work of giving judgments (beliefs) to the side of your head, via your final decision maker, because so long as want them.
It really is that simple and only confusing due to the belief that the only choice is between ego judgments of “poor” and “rich,” to utilize the sooner example, and not understanding about this third option being available. The option for True Perception is to decide on neither ego judgment and relinquish both for correction of the mind. This is exactly what is takes to return your head to God.
ACIM is targeted at the decision maker in the mind. The whole point is that you’ve a selection which side of your head to be controlled by and use for interpretation acim. That is all that ever happened to start with. It absolutely was a selection to listen, 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 whatever else you may not want because they are not real.
Two things stop you from relinquishing judgments: (1) your attachment for them as being true and real; and, (2) not acknowledging how you are feeling keeps them hidden so you don’t realize they are judgments.
You don’t “feel” in Heaven, Knowledge and Oneness. It’s an experience shared by One.
Your decision maker may be the mechanism between the 2 sides of the split mind. It’s neutral, an observer and is something you’ve to employ to watch your head and the judgments being made by the ego. Once you realize you’ve used something from the ego error of the wrong or right mind, you should be willing to hand them to the perfect solution is, or the correction, of the Holy Spirit Right Mind. It protects the others while the Atonement or solution is already there. No affirmations are necessary. You’re simply stopping that which so long as want. It’s, and certainly can, be that easy.
Form and Content:
The final component to know from A Course in Miracles is form and content. Form is this world and everything in it. In ACIM, form does not matter and is area of the “beliefs” to be turned over. However, you use everything in form, along with the judgments in your mind, while the curriculum of what to show over for correction (forgiveness).
What does matter is content and in ACIM, content may be the mind. The actually are using for interpretation (perception) of individuals, places, and things, etc., counts for everything. You are able to just 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.
To conclude, think about the simplicity of ACIM which is a Course in training your mind just how to perceive properly. You must return your head to peace as the Kingdom of God is peace and you cannot start to see the doorway from judgment. You simply see peace in peace and while sharing peace with everyone.
All ACIM says is you’ve the willingness to discover ways to do this, study the ideas and then use it into practice. The help you’ll need will appear; however, you, my friend, must do the task of the inward journey back to the mind.
The Law of Cause and Effect is the shape, 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 to peace where you eventually start to see the illusion of preference, because no separation occurred, and choose to offer it down once and for all.
