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.”

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.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 23.

23. Does Jesus Have a Special Place in Healing? 1. God’s gifts can rarely be received directly. Even the most advanced of God’s teachers will give way to temptation in this world. Would it be fair if their pupils were denied healing because of this? The Bible says, “Ask in the name of Jesus Christ.”Continue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 23.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 22.

22. How Are Healing and Atonement Related? 1. Healing and Atonement are not related; they are identical. There is no order of difficulty in miracles because there are no degrees of Atonement. It is the one complete concept possible in this world, because it is the source of a wholly unified perception. Partial Atonement isContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 22.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 21.

21. What Is The Role Of Words In Healing? 1. Strictly speaking, words play no part at all in healing. The motivating factor is prayer, or asking. What you ask for you receive. But this refers to the prayer of the heart, not to the words you use in praying. Sometimes the words and theContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 21.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 20.

20. What is the Peace of God? 1. It has been said that there is a kind of peace that is not of this world. How is it recognized? How is it found? And being found, how can it be retained? Let us consider each of these questions separately, for each reflects a different stepContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 20.”
