A Course In Miracles, aka ACIM

(1976 - )


Written anonymously by Helen Schucman and William Thetford as a Self-Study Curriculum for Spiritual Development describing non-dualistic metaphysics with the concept of forgiveness given practical application in daily living

All anger is nothing more than an attempt to make someone feel guilty.
Anger comes from judgment.
Can the world be saved if you are not?
Doubt is the result of conflicted wishes. Be sure of what you want, and doubt becomes impossible.
Dreams show you that you have the power.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity
Everyone experiences fear. Yet it would take very little right thinking to realize why fear occurs. Few appreciate the real power of the mind, and no one remains fully aware of it all the time. However, if you hope to spare yourself from fear there are some things you must realize, and realize fully. The mind is very powerful, and never loses its creative force. It never sleeps. Every instant it is creating. It is hard to recognize that thought and belief combine into a power surge that can literally move mountains. It appears at first glance that to believe such power about yourself is arrogant, but that is not the real reason you do not believe it. You prefer to believe that your thoughts cannot exert real influence because you are actually afraid of them. This may allay awareness of the guilt, but at the cost of perceiving the mind as impotent. If you believe that what you think is ineffectual you may cease to be afraid of it, but you are hardly likely to respect it. There are no idle thoughts. All thinking produces form at some level.
Exploring the question brings more wisdom than having the answer
Forgiveness is the healing of the perception of separation.
Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
