VIII.  Grandeur versus Grandiosity 7-11 7. Truth and littleness are denials of each other because grandeur is truth. Truth does not vacillate; it is always true. When grandeur slips away from you, you have replaced it with something you have made. Perhaps it is the belief in littleness; perhaps it is the belief in grandiosity.Continue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

VIII.  Grandeur vs Grandiosity 1-6 Grandeur is of God, and only of Him. Therefore, it is in you. Whenever you become aware of it, however dimly, you abandoned the ego automatically, because in the presence of the grandeur of God the meaninglessness of the ego becomes perfectly apparent. When this occurs, even though it doesContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

VI.  The Acceptance of Your Brother How can you become increasingly aware of the Holy Spirit in you except by His effects? You cannot see Him with your eyes nor hear Him with your ears. How, then, can you perceive Him at all? If you inspire joy and others react to you with joy, evenContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

V.  The Unhealed Healer The ego’s plan for forgiveness is far more widely used than God’s. This is because it is undertaken by unhealed healers and is therefore of the ego. Let us consider the unhealed healer more carefully now. By definition, he is trying to give what he has not received. If an unhealedContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

IV. The Holy Spirit’s Plan of Forgiveness 7-12 7.  The confusion of functions is so typical of the ego that you should be quite familiar with it by now. The ego believes that all functions belong to it, even though it has no idea what they are. This is more than mere confusion. It isContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE ATONEMENT”

IV. The Holy Spirit’s Plan of Forgiveness 1-6 Atonement is for all, because it is the way to undo the belief that anything is for you alone. To forgive is to overlook.  Look, then, beyond error and do not let your perception rest upon it, for you will believe what your perception holds. Accept asContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

III.  The Correction of Error The alertness of the ego to the errors of other egos is not the kind of vigilance the Holy Spirit would have you maintain. Egos are critical in terms of the kind of sense they stand for. They understand this kind of sense because it is sensible to them. ToContinue reading “A Course in Miracles Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

II. The Answer to Prayer 7-12 7. I love you for the truth in you, as God does. Your deceptions may deceive you, but they cannot deceive me. Knowing what you are, I cannot doubt you. I hear only the Holy Spirit in you, who speaks to me through you. If you would hear me,Continue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

II. The Answer to Prayer 1-6 Everyone whoever tried to use prayer to ask for something has experienced what appears to be failure. This is not only true in connection with specific things that might be harmful, but also in connection with requests that are strictly in line with this course. The latter in particularContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”

I. The Acceptance of Reality 8-14 8. No right mind can believe that its will is stronger than God’s. If then, our mind believes that its will is different from His, it can only decide either that there is no God or that God’s Will is fearful. The former accounts for the atheist and theContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 9 The Acceptance of the Atonement”
