Have you wondered what the Course in Miracles is all about? If so, come to an informational meeting in lieu of the sharing circle. Marie Griffith, a longtime student of the spiritual psychology, will describe it and take your questions. If there’s enough interest, we may form a covenant group.
The Course in Miracles is a course mainly in Love and Forgiveness. It is a self-study consisting of 1,300 pages of theology, daily lessons, and a manual of terms with instructions for teachers. Its goal is to heal our minds so we can enjoy perfect health and peace. Though difficult to practice, it offers a simple solution to every problem. Also, two more things: (1 ) It teaches that the world, the way we conceive of it, is an illusion, because all is consciousness; our experiences, however, are very real. AND, (2) All illness is due to a conflicted mind.
ACIM is based on non-dual thinking, perhaps closer to Buddhism than Christianity.
Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.
Note: the word “real” is your eternal, unalterable Spirit, i.e., God/Creator.
What is a Miracle? One of the simplest definitions is that it is a correction for how we perceive and how we think. The miracle is focused on healing our minds so we can think with God/Love. When our minds are healed, via advanced forgiveness, our bodies are not far behind. The world is just a reflection of our unloving thoughts. It asks to you look on devastation and remind your mind that what it sees is false.
