ACIM CLARIFICATION OF TERMS 1. MIND-SPIRIT

1. The term mind is used to represent the activating agent of spirit, supplying its creative energy. When the term is capitalized it refers to God or Christ (i.e., the Mind of God or the Mind of Christ). Spirit is the thought of God which He created like Himself. The unified spirit is God’s oneContinue reading “ACIM CLARIFICATION OF TERMS 1. MIND-SPIRIT”

ACIM CLARIFICATION OF TERMS INTRODUCTION

1. This is not a course in philosophical speculation, nor is it concerned with precise terminology. It is concerned only with Atonement, or the correction of perception. The means of the Atonement is forgiveness. The structure of “individual consciousness” is essentially irrelevant because it is a concept representing the “original error” or the “original sin.”Continue reading “ACIM CLARIFICATION OF TERMS INTRODUCTION”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 29.

29. AS FOR THE REST… 1. This manual is not intended to answer all questions that both teacher and pupil may raise. In fact, it covers only a few of the more obvious ones, in terms of a brief summary of some of the major concepts in the text and workbook. It is not aContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 29.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 28.

28. What is the Resurrection? 1. Very simply, the resurrection is the overcoming or surmounting of death. It is a reawakening or a rebirth, a change of mind about the meaning of the world. It is the acceptance of the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of the world’s purpose, the acceptance of the Atonement for oneself. ItContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 28.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 27.

27. What Is Death? 1. Death is the central dream from which all illusions stem. Is it not madness to think of life as being born, aging, losing vitality, and dying in the end? We have asked this question before, but now we need to consider it more carefully. It is the one fixed, unchangeableContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 27.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 26.

CAN GOD BE REACHED DIRECTLY? 1. God indeed can be reached directly, for there is no distance between Him and His Son. His awareness is in everyone’s memory, and His Word is written on everyone’s heart. Yet this awareness and this memory can arise across the threshold of recognition only where all barriers to truthContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 26.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 25.

ARE “PSYCHIC” POWERS DESIRABLE? 1. The answer to this question is much like the preceding one. There are, of course, no “unnatural” powers, and it is obviously merely an appeal to magic to make up a power that does not exist. It is equally obvious, however, that each individual has many abilities of which heContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 25.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 24.

24. Is Reincarnation So? 1. In the ultimate sense, reincarnation is impossible. There is no past or future, and the idea of birth into a body has no meaning either once or many times. Reincarnation cannot, then, be true in any real sense. Our only question should be, “Is the concept helpful?” and that depends,Continue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 24.”
