This is different from the Law of Attraction, a subject on which much was written about these last few years. ACIM replies not only why things are the way they are with the mind, but also how to implement these mind corrections needed to change your life. What it comes down to is the choice to fix the thoughts and return home, or your choice while remaining in the world to modify beliefs.
Affirmations are not part of A Course in Miracles as they are not necessary and here’s why: There’s a”incorrect” ego mind, along with also a”right” ego mind, each of which are still part of the exact same self indulgent side of the split mind. Within the ego mind (error), the wrong side is all the negative conclusions; and the ideal side is all the negative conclusions seeking to convince you how wonderful it’s to live here in this negative world. Neither is the fact of your nature nor where you’re trying to reunite your mind, according to ACIM.
The Law of Cause and Effect is this: According to the mind you utilize as trigger, you will see the effect. Ideas do not leave their origin: You. Both”bad” and”rich” are conclusions of their self using it as cause which can only produce ego effect. Ego being an unstable thought system, what you select as”rich” will finally go and you wind up back with”poor.” It is only a matter of”when.”
The ego’s choice system is: (1) one or the other: (2) poor or rich; and, (3) ego or God. It asks you to choose between two things within the self illusion rather than to pick from the illusion. This is compared to choosing correction of the brain (forgiveness) where the two”bad” and”wealthy” do not exist. An option for correction of their mind makes it possible for the Holy Spirit Right Mind to be your cause which affects the you in this planet it doesn’t have the consequences because the ego can not relate you envision. It returns a portion of the mind to peace and endings senseless worry over poor and wealthy. You’ll have to select correction to encounter them although Additionally, it creates effects on your own life here.
Let’s look at this breaks all down into a simple set of principles based on Effect and Cause. It just has a few parts and when used and understood, they can be”brain” adjusting! Bear in mind, according to acim, the brain is split by the ego’s judgment that we could be separate, also known as the”little mad idea,” or the mistake that never occurred. This section of the mind is only hidden in darkness since it banished itself out of compliments (Heaven and Oneness) if we forgot to laugh off what couldn’t be true. It didn’t, however, separate.
So about beliefs or affirmations it is not in ACIM, since the mind still resides in the home with Him and never abandoned God. There are no”belief” disagreements in Love, Oneness, Heaven and Knowledge as everything is the same, all one, and nothing to think or estimate between. It is about changing your internal Teacher or rather, who you’re currently listening to for interpretation of occasions in this world. The only real change is in the decision between the split mind (mistake ) of the ego or the Holy Spirit Right Mind (correction) as that inner Teacher.
This is because there is no convincing the self appropriate and wrong mind of another method of thinking where the ease of usage is evident from ACIM. You give up what you desire. We do it all of the time and today we do it with all the ego beliefs. That says it all. In ACIM, there’s not anything to forgive since no error has occurred, i.e., no separation happened. What you are doing is returning mind to its normal state of peace, and to God, where it left. To do that is simply a choice of the side of the split head to listen to for interpretation of events and turning across the judgments you do not want to the Holy Spirit Right Mind for correction (forgiveness).
The Holy Spirit would be the solution to the separation placed in the head by God and every response is there waiting for you. Forgiveness atonement, salvation and True Perception are words which are interchangeable. You need to be willing to use the Holy Spirit Right Mind for interpretation of events and perform the actual work of committing conclusions (beliefs) to the side of their head, via your decision maker, because you do not want them.
It really is that easy and just confusing due to the belief that the only choice is between self judgments of”bad” and”wealthy,” to use the earlier example, and not understanding about this third alternative available. Relinquish equally for correction of their mind and the choice for Authentic Perception is to select neither ego judgment. This is exactly what is required to return God your mind.
ACIM is aimed at the decision maker in the mind. The entire point is that you have a choice of which side of the mind to obey and use for interpretation. That is. It was a choice consider to listen and choose judgments of the ensuing sin and this self that separation occurred, guilt and fear. Judgments could be dismissed as easily as anything else you don’t want because they are not real is dismissed by you.
