Over 40 years ago, a psychiatrist from Columbia University began to channel revelations from the spiritual entity that she was convinced was Jesus himself. She and her assistants produced teachings that filled a huge selection of empty pages over a period of seven years which later became “A Course In Miracles.”
The psychologist was a Jewish lady named Helen Schucman, and she told people who Jesus Christ himself was her own spirit guide for these lessons and teachings course in miracles author. These lessons were supposed to supply credence for individuals to find out that they certainly were the only real ones in control of their very own feelings, attitudes, actions, and destinies. The teachings took many penalties of actions out of the equation. Indeed, a hallmark of the ACIM course is that evil itself does not exist. The ACIM teachings insist that by training your mind properly, you are able to learn that there is no such thing as evil and so it is a perception or something that other people have set as much as frighten and control what and thoughts of those who find themselves not capable of thinking for themselves. ACIM insists that the only thing that does exist is pure love and that innocent minds and spiritually right thinking will not allow anything like evil to exist.
These ideas and beliefs angered many people who belonged to some of the major faiths because, while they espoused most of the same principles, this course also sought to possess people feel that evil is not real and therefore sin can be not real. ACIM itself tries to possess people rely on the sanctity of right and wise beliefs and behavior and in the fact nothing can harm you if you don’t believe so it can. New Age gurus were quick to understand these concepts because most of the New Age religions are based not on sin and redemption but the ability of one’s own mind and spirit.
ACIM has some teachings about how to rid yourself of angry and negative emotions that are flooding your life with problems and creating illness and unhappiness day by day. A Course In Miracles teaches you that you are in charge of these feelings and they are only hurting you. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to rid them from your life for your own personel happiness and prosperity.
