A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is really a non-dualistic spirituality which contains a couple of guidelines about the psychotherapy of the split mind. Understanding these metaphysical aspects assists in the practical application of the principles within ACIM when making choices. Without actual application, these principles are only ideas; but with application they become an experience, and experience changes everything. The metaphysical portion is a superb identifier of the ego’s judgmental thought system along with a heavenly reminder of what’s true about ourselves.
Looking at metaphysical descriptions written down and becoming aware of these attributes is of great benefit in knowing what you are choosing both for and against. Keep them handy, and refer for them often as you navigate the options in your life.
Below are a few quite simple points to think about concerning the metaphysical facets of ACIM:
The Un-Healed Mind – the super-unconscious mind is where in actuality the “tiny mad idea” of separation began. It is obtainable via the conscious awareness of what’s going on in your life. The ego doesn’t want you to remember that the theory was just an option a course in miracles, but your brain remembers where it came from. It naturally returns to peace whenever you select the Holy Spirit Right Mind.
The Split Mind – the unconscious mind contains sin, fear and guilt from that original separation idea. Here is the basis of the ego’s thought system of judgment since it divides out. Remember the ego’s judgment above: Separation is really a sin punishable by death. For having separated, it now places guilt in your brain; and says you have to be fearful of the now vengeful God who wants to kill you for what you’ve done. The kill or be killed (one or the other) ego judgments as seen in the sub-conscious and conscious behaviors begin to produce sense considering their origin in the mind.
The Right-Mind – the split mind and the 2 conflicting thought systems is extremely evident. Compare the 2 sides to understand what you are choosing in any given moment. These very clearly illustrate the psychotherapy of your brain and having lists makes it readily apparent why one system of thinking hurts and another heals. You are able to only choose one thought system, or interpretation, at the same time as it is obviously one or the other. You still retain the decision maker. Which do you want to choose?
The ego wrong mind is founded on judgment and separation from others going back again to the first separation idea. That separation sin now punishable by death which also contains the beginning of guilt and fear. Once you select the judgmental ego as cause, your effect is:
victim/victimization – judgment – projection – addiction – grievances – hate – anger – war – specialness – death – forgive to destroy – sin – fear – guilt – special relationships
The Holy Right Mind is founded on sharing and oneness and returning your brain back again to the peace of God and out of the illusion of choice. This says that the error never occurred and you’re still as God created you. There’s nothing else. Once you select the Holy Spirit as cause, your effect is:
True forgiveness – Holy Relationship – Holy Spirit Judgment – Shared Interest – Sameness – Healing – Forgiveness – Love – Peace – Life – Sinlessness – Guiltlessness – Fearlessness – Oneness – Truth – Knowledge – Heaven
I invite you to help study the metaphysical aspects connected with A Course in Miracles. Understanding their ideas and principles helps in applying them to your life as you decide on the right path out of the illusion. They’re a couple of guidelines straight from A Course in Miracles that show you what each aspect is all about.
