A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is a non-dualistic spirituality which contains a couple of guidelines regarding the psychotherapy of the split mind. Understanding these metaphysical aspects assists in the practical application of the principles within ACIM when coming up with choices. Without actual application, these principles are only ideas; but with application they become an experience, and experience changes everything. The metaphysical portion is a superb identifier of the ego’s judgmental thought system along with a heavenly reminder of what’s true about ourselves.
Considering metaphysical descriptions on paper and becoming aware of these attributes is of great benefit in knowing what you are choosing both for and against. Keep them handy, and refer in their mind often as you navigate your choices in your life.
Here are some quite simple points to consider about the metaphysical aspects of ACIM:
The Un-Healed Mind – the super-unconscious mind is where in fact the “tiny mad idea” of separation began. It is obtainable via the conscious awareness of what’s going on in your life acim. The ego doesn’t want you to remember that the theory was just a choice; but your head remembers where it came from. It naturally returns to peace when you pick the Holy Spirit Right Mind.
The Split Mind – the unconscious mind contains sin, fear and guilt from that original separation idea. This is the basis of the ego’s thought system of judgment because it divides out. Remember the ego’s judgment above: Separation is a sin punishable by death. For having separated, it now places guilt in your head; and says you need to be fearful of the now vengeful God who wants to kill you for what you’ve done. The kill or be killed (one or the other) ego judgments as noticed in the sub-conscious and conscious behaviors begin to create sense considering their origin in the mind.
The Right-Mind – the split mind and both conflicting thought systems is very evident. Compare both sides to know what you are choosing in just about any given moment. These very clearly illustrate the psychotherapy of your head and having lists helps it be readily apparent why one system of thinking hurts and one other heals. You can only select one thought system, or interpretation, at the same time as it is definitely one or the other. You still retain your decision maker. Which are you going to choose?
The ego wrong mind is founded on judgment and separation from others going back again to the first separation idea. That separation sin now punishable by death which also includes the beginning of guilt and fear. Once you pick the judgmental ego as cause, your effect is:
victim/victimization – judgment – projection – addiction – grievances – hate – anger – war – specialness – death – forgive to destroy – sin – fear – guilt – special relationships
The Holy Right Mind is founded on sharing and oneness and returning your brain back again to the peace of God and out of the illusion of choice. This says that the error never occurred and you are still as God created you. There’s nothing else. Once you pick the Holy Spirit as cause, your effect is:
True forgiveness – Holy Relationship – Holy Spirit Judgment – Shared Interest – Sameness – Healing – Forgiveness – Love – Peace – Life – Sinlessness – Guiltlessness – Fearlessness – Oneness – Truth – Knowledge – Heaven
I invite you to further study the metaphysical aspects associated with A Course in Miracles. Understanding their ideas and principles helps in applying them to your life as you decide on your path out of the illusion. They’re a couple of guidelines straight from A Course in Miracles that show you what each aspect is all about. A lot more than that, you can think about the origin of both aspects and their respective intentions. When along with the manner in which you truly feel, the ego’s motivations are obvious when compared from the Holy Spirit’s truth.
Knowing what to decide on goes a long way but bear in mind that you will be usually the one who must travel this inner path in to the mind. You have to do the actual application of the principles contains in A Course in Miracles and do the job of choosing. It’s as simple as that. ACIM is a Course at heart training!
