The beauty and simplicity of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) really shines through one of its major principles: REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect. That is different from the Law of Attraction, a subject which so much has been discussed these last couple of years. ACIM answers not only why things are the way they are with the mind, but additionally how to implement these mind corrections had a need to change your daily life. What it ultimately boils down to is the choice to improve beliefs while staying in this world, or the choice to correct the mind and return home.

Affirmations are not part of A Course in Miracles because they are not necessary and here’s why: You will find a “wrong” ego mind, and a “right” ego mind, both of which are still section of the same ego side of the split mind. Within the ego mind (error), the incorrect side is all of the negative judgments; and the right side is all the negative judgments attempting to convince you how wonderful it is to live here in this negative world. Neither is the truth of your nature nor what your location is trying to return your brain, according to ACIM.

The Law of Cause and Effect is this: In line with the mind you use as cause, you will notice the corresponding effect. Ideas do not leave their source: You.

Let’s use this example:

Someone is feeling the consequences to be “poor,” or lack, nowadays and wants to change their beliefs to will have “rich” (abundance, prosperity, money) arrive. Both “poor” and “rich” are judgments of the ego deploying it as cause which can only produce ego effect. Ego being an unstable thought system, what you choose as “rich” will eventually go and you also end up back with “poor.” It’s just a question of “when.”

The ego’s choice system is: (1) one or another: (2) poor or rich; and, (3) ego or God. It asks you 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” 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 generally does not have the consequences you imagine because the ego cannot relate. It returns some of your brain to peace and ends senseless worry over rich and poor. It also 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 predicated on Cause and Effect. It only has a few components so when understood and used, they are often “mind” correcting!

The Metaphysics:

Remember, according to ACIM, your brain 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 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 is not about affirmations or changing beliefs, because the mind never left God and still resides at home with Him. There are no “belief” judgments in Love, Oneness, Heaven and Knowledge as everything may be 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 nowadays. The only 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 simplicity is evident in ACIM because there’s no convincing the ego wrong and right mind of another way of thinking. You simply give up what you no more want. We do it on a regular basis with ego stuff; and today we just take action with the ego beliefs themselves.

Forgiveness:

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. What you are doing is simply returning your mind to God, where it never left, and to its natural state of peace. To do that is simply either which side of the split mind to listen to 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 is the solution to the separation put into your brain by God and every answer is there looking forward to you. Atonement, forgiveness, salvation and True Perception are other words which are synonymous. You need to be willing to utilize the Holy Spirit Right Mind for interpretation of events and do the actual work of giving judgments (beliefs) to this side of your brain, via your decision maker, because you no longer want them.

It really is that easy and only confusing as a result of 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 decision for True Perception would be to choose neither ego judgment and relinquish both for correction of your brain. This is what is takes to return the mind to God.

Decision Maker:

ACIM is targeted at the decision maker in your brain. The whole point is that you have a selection of which side of the mind to listen to and use for interpretation. That is all that ever happened to begin with. It 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 other things you do not want because they are not real.

Two things stop you from relinquishing judgments: (1) your attachment in their mind as being true and real; and, (2) not acknowledging the way you feel keeps them hidden so you don’t realize they’re judgments.

You don’t “feel” in Heaven, Knowledge and Oneness. It really is an event shared by One.

The decision maker may be the mechanism between your two sides of the split mind. It is neutral, an observer and is something you need to employ to watch the mind 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 answer, or the correction, of the Holy Spirit Right Mind. It takes care of the rest as the Atonement or solution has already been there. No affirmations are essential. You are simply quitting that which you no longer want. It really is, and certainly can, be that easy.

Form and Content:

The last 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 portion of the “beliefs” to be turned over. However, you utilize everything in form, combined with the judgments in your mind, as the curriculum of what to start for correction (forgiveness).

What does matter is content and in ACIM, content may be the mind. The mind you’re 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 that includes both interpretations of the ego mind.

In conclusion, think about the simplicity of ACIM that is a Course in training your mind how exactly to perceive properly. You need to return your brain to peace because the Kingdom of God is peace and you cannot start to see the doorway from judgment. un curso de milagros en espanol You merely see peace in peace and while sharing peace with everyone.

All ACIM says is you have the willingness to understand how to do this, study the ideas and then put it into practice. The assist you to need will show up; but you, my pal, must do the work of the inward journey back into the mind.

REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect is the form, or mind, you are using for interpretation will undoubtedly be your effect nowadays. It’ll affect you in other 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 elect to give it up forever.
