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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 18.

18. How is Correction Made? 1. Correction of a lasting nature,—and only this is true correction,—cannot be made until the teacher of God has ceased to confuse interpretation with fact, or illusion with truth. If he argues with his pupil about a magic thought, attacks it, tries to establish its error or demonstrate its falsity,Continue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 18.”

19. What is Justice? 1. Justice is the divine correction for injustice. Injustice is the basis for all judgments of the world. Justice corrects the interpretations to which injustice gives rise and cancels them out. Neither justice nor injustice exists in Heaven, for error is impossible and correction meaningless. In this world, however, forgiveness dependsContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHER 19.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 17.

17. How Do God’s Teachers Deal With Magic Thoughts? 1. This is a crucial question both for teacher and pupil. If this issue is mishandled, the teacher of God has hurt himself and has also attacked his pupil. This strengthens fear, and makes the magic seem quite real to both of them. How to dealContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 17.”

ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 16.

16. How Should the Teacher of God Spend His Day? 1. To the advanced teacher of God this question is meaningless. There is no program, for the lessons change each day. Yet the teacher of God is sure of but one thing; they do not change at random. Seeing this and understanding that it isContinue reading “ACIM MANUAL FOR TEACHERS 16.”
