PRINCIPLES OF MIRACLES 38-50
- 38. The Holy Spirit is the mechanism of miracles. He recognizes both God’s creations and your illusions. He separates the true from the false by His ability to perceive totally rather than selectively.
- 39. The miracle dissolves error because the Holy Spirit identifies error as false or unreal. This is the same as saying that by perceiving light, darkness automatically disappears.
- 40. The miracle acknowledges everyone as your brother and mine. It is a way of perceiving the universal mark of God.
- 41. Wholeness is the perceptual content of miracles. They thus correct, or atone for, the faulty perception of lack.
- 42. A major contribution of miracles is their strength in releasing you from your false sense of isolation, deprivation, and lack.
- 43. Miracles arise from a miraculous state of mind, or a state of miracle-readiness.
- 44. The miracle is an expression of an inner awareness of Christ and the acceptance of His Atonement.
- 45. A miracle is never lost. It may touch many people you have not even met and produce undreamed of changes in situations of which you are not even aware.
- 46. The Holy Spirit is the highest communication medium. Miracles do not involve this type of communication, because they are temporary communication devices. When you return to your original form of communication with God by direct revelation, the need for miracles is over.
- 47. The miracle is a learning device that lessens the need for time. It establishes an out-of-pattern time interval not under the usual laws of time. In this sense it is timeless.
- 48. The miracle is the only device at your immediate disposal for controlling time. Only revelation transcends it, having nothing to do with time at all.
- 49. The miracle makes no distinction among degrees of misperception. It is a device for perception-correction, effective quite apart from either the degree or the direction of the error. This is its true indiscriminateness.
- 50. The miracle compares what you have made with creation, accepting what is in accord with it as true, and rejecting what is out of accord as false.
