A Course in Miracles: The Way to Love and Inner Peace is through Forgiveness
A Course in Miracles is described as a unique, universal, self-study spiritual thought system which teaches that the way to love and inner peace is through forgiveness. The Foundation for Inner Peace Combined Volume takes the form of a book in three parts that include the text, the 365 daily workbook lessons as well as the supplements. Applying the principles in the text and experientially practicing the workbook lessons (designed as daily exercises for one year) are the heart of the mind training program and are all geared toward having us realize we have a split mind: the wrong-minded home of the ego or fear, the right-minded home of genuine love, and the power to choose between them.
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) purports that there are only two emotions—love and fear. Our misunderstanding occurs at the causal level of thinking by choosing and believing the wrong-minded loveless thoughts of the fearful ego rather than choosing and accepting the right-minded thoughts of love. The purpose of A Course in Miracles is the escape from fear, which is accomplished by choosing to apply the ideas and principles in the text and choosing to make the effort to practice the daily workbook lessons in your everyday life. A Course in Miracles teaches that every situation can be seen as an extension of love or a call to love.
ACIM: Transformation of Perception to See Things Differently
The course is rooted in universal spiritual themes that do not apply to anything specific but—in truth—apply to everything. If you choose to incorporate A Course in Miracles in your study with me, we will work together to build the spiritual muscles that lead us to continue to return to the right-mind of genuine love.
Our practice states that you must “seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” A coach for miracles—or spiritual counselor—can be viewed as a dance partner. They can dance with you, but not for you. Sometimes the coach is the leader. Sometimes the mentee is the leader. The purpose of the course is the escape from fear. The right-mind genuinely loves unconditionally—everyone of all forms equally and without judgment.
Together we will begin the joyful work of opening our minds to see the “reality” of illusions. Where you are is where we begin. With love and understanding, we aim to remove the blocks to the truth. All forms of suffering including anxiety, depression, addiction, codependency, and relationship conflict can be remedied by healing your mind.
A Course in Miracles is a powerful way to heal the false belief in a separated self, or in other words, experience the awareness of our perfect oneness. We find the path to that better way through applying the course’s principles of love, practicing the lessons, and experiencing the transformation and the miracles that abound.
