ACIM Practicality

on May 26, 2018

ACIM can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:

“Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”

(https://facim.org/)

 

What exactly does this mean for the average person? How do we apply the wisdom of A Course in Miracles? I mean if we can’t use it then what’s its worth? This is about changing our mind, not the world which does not even exist.

Let’s break this down word for word. “No-thing which actually exists is ever in real danger.” The Course teaches us that no-thing exists in this world we see around us. It is like a dream, an illusion that seems very real, but is not actually real. Meaning We (our essence or actual self) cannot be harmed in any way. We pretend to die, get injured, become sick, but in actuality this is all make believe. We are dreaming that we are separate from the Infinite Creator/Great Spirit/God. This separation makes all the bad things possible, it makes bad itself possible, because as we all know Infinite Creator/Great Spirit/God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. If we are separate then we cannot be this.

What the Course is saying is Infinite Creator/Great Spirit/God is all there is. There is nothing else, if it seems otherwise it’s an illusion. The physical seems rea, however we are deceiving ourselves. In a duality the opposite is true. No-thing unreal exists! We just don’t understand what is “real”. Infinite Creator/Great Spirit/God is all that is real. The Course uses many pages to explain this and clarify what is “real” and what is “unreal”. I can just say it is worth the effort to fully understand this distinction. Read the Course, do the exercises, and apply ACIM forgiveness as necessary in your life.

You will find that many of the words used in the Course have different meanings than what you think, so use books like Gary Renard’s and websites like Foundation for A Course In Miracles to explore this further. I have been at this for almost 20 years now and I am getting close to really understanding it. ACIM is a lifestyle change, it is something you give your life to, it is NOT something you read in a few days and move on.

The last sentence provides purpose and shows us the simplicity of Truth. “Herein lies the peace of God”. It basically says all is well, it can be nothing else. We are Infinite Creator/Great Spirit/God, not just a part of it, but all of it. There is but One, the One, Infinite Creator/Great Spirit/God, anything else is illusion or dreamtime. Peace is all there is! I use 3 words interchangeably – Joy, Love, and Peace. These 3 words are synonymous with Infinite Creator/Great Spirit/God.

Depression, sadness, or despair cannot exist in “reality”, so choose again. ACIM teaches that we have but two choices in a dualistic world, the real or the unreal. The world you see is “unreal” and the world of God is “real”. They are mutually exclusive. Choose one or the other. There is no inbetween, no divine in this world. We choose between duality and non-duality or Oneness. Give up the unreal and you can have the real… give nothing for everything! The good news is this choice has already been made. Reality, Oneness, the Real, God, is all that really exists and never ends. Dreams do end and ours is over.
