This innocuous book came to my attention in 2005 and it’s passed several times since. I had no inclination to peruse its contents I had ceased to believe in miracles. I was using all of my power to stave off the hell I descended into 15 years before by marrying a guy as un-Godly as anyone could be.
In 2007, while packing some books as gifts to get a book fair, my hands once more dropped on”A Course in Miracles”. By this time, I had procured a divorce however still dealt with the fallout. I became calm and really thoughtful, as I recognized the book. What was it about this book that invoked feelings I had not experienced in a very long time? My hand clung to the publication refusing to place it down. I sat in my favorite reading chair and made a cup of tea. With fantastic curiosity, I focused on the blue hardcover and also read”A Course in Miracles, a base for inner peace.” Wow. Fine, I chose to bite although that was a pretty bold statement. I pondered the obvious question: what’s the basis for peace? An old wound opened and it had better have the answer to healing.
Written in three parts, can not be read in a week or even a month and this publication is not to be taken lightly. There’s also a manual for teachers, a workbook for students and text. I had the sudden desire to fling the book throughout the room because I had been profoundly fearful and deeply. I instinctively understood that once I began reading this novel, I was going to need to change and was I ready for the journey ahead?
My favorite movie is”The Matrix”. The primary character Neo is searching for the answer. He knows the matrix exists but he does not know what it is. The guy with the answer, Morpheus, contacts Neo and offers the opportunity by providing Neo a choice between taking a pill or a blue pill. Take the blue pill and also stay ignorant or choose the red pill and discover the reply. Neo that if he choose the red pill is cautioned by Morpheus before he reaches for his pill of selection he can never go back.
Can I examine it and change everything I understand about the world and myself or do I take the blue pill and also make”A Course in Miracles” book fair fodder? As I choke down the red pill, I turn to Lesson 1 of 365 in the workbook for students and immediately read,”Nothing I see in this area means anything”. Oh dear. Is it too late to take the pill?

Knowing these aspects assists from the technical application of these principles contained in ACIM when making decisions. They become an experience; although these principles are only thoughts, and everything is changed by experience. The metaphysical part is a reminder of what is true about ourselves as well as a identifier of the judgmental notion system of this ego.
Becoming aware of their attributes and looking at metaphysical descriptions on paper is of fantastic benefit in being aware of what you are currently choosing both against and for. Keep them handy, and refer to them as you navigate the options on your life. Here are a few very simple things to consider about the metaphysical aspects of ACIM: The Un-Healed Mind – that the super-unconscious head is where the”tiny mad idea” of separation began. It is accessible via the conscious awareness of what’s going on in your lifetime. The ego does not want you to keep in mind that the idea was only a choice; but the mind remembers where it came out. When you opt for that the Holy Spirit Right Mind, it obviously returns to calmness un curso de milagros.
The Split Mind – the mind contains sin, guilt and fear from this separation notion that is original. This is the basis of the ego’s thought system of ruling as it divides . Remember the judgment of the ego above: Separation is a sin punishable by death. For having separated, it places guilt in the mind; also says you ought to be fearful. The kill or be killed (the other) self decisions as seen in the sub-conscious and mindful behaviors start to make sense considering their origin in the brain.
