About A Course in Miracles
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.
— Preface to A Course in Miracles
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is a practical guidebook to healing. Healing is to bring back wholeness of yourself, to know your wholeness, to see other’s wholeness, and to use yourself fully. ACIM is the curriculum that heals the thirst and hunger of the mind and body, cures the scar and the illness. It is a complete lecture on life dynamics. It can be a perfect physician just because ACIM is a training to diagnose what a seed problem is and what a complete solution is immediately.
ACIM is a book, a curriculum for self-study. It requires practice and demonstration of what you learn day by day. This practice re-patterns your thought system and sense of values. Students will obtain a new point of view about life and this world, gaining clarity about what is reality and what is not.
ACIM is not a religion. It does not have a founder, organization, hierarchy, or rituals. As is clearly stated in ACIM, ACIM is not the only road. There is no one-and-only way. There is no rule or model. However, ACIM gives you a clear new thought system, and to accept and demonstrate it requires a commitment and faith, as do many other spiritual and religious practices. It is not surprising to hear that many people find some similarity between ACIM and religions such as Buddhism, esoteric Buddhism, Taoism, Sufi, Christianity, etc.
ACIM is psychology and psychotherapy. The ACIM therapist realizes that both therapist and his/her client are a part of the perfect mind of the universe, which is knowledge itself and power almighty, and they have freedom to know it. With this awareness they are able to reach any seed thought that may be causing problems at once. The trained therapist – who practices ACIM with faith – does not fail to receive the message from the perfect mind of universe. In their healing / counseling session, the therapist and his/her client would share the experience that all aspects of life are shifted by changing the state of consciousness.
The practice of ACIM is always done in relationships. Since we perceive everything in the world of duality, we know ourselves by knowing others. Thus, we need to know others completely in order to know about ourselves completely. When you realize the true reason why a particular person appears in your life, that relationship that has been entangled firmly is undone. ACIM has a clear vision that healing is completed at once when you open your mind to be healed together with another person instead of seeking healing by yourself alone.
Those who learn ACIM reach the point where messages from the perfect mind of the universe are received. It can be called psychic ability. However, the source of messages is strictly one. ACIM clearly warns that if you have any intuitive sense that something threatens anyone, it is not a message from the perfect mind but rather from ego’s fear, which tries to control and seeks magic not miracles.
ACIM is a complete collection of messages from the perfect mind of the universe intended to help you to remember who you are and to express who you are. Our mission at CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) is not only to facilite this experience, but also to support our community members’ efforts to support one another and and be a witness of the light in one another. As I said before, ACIM is a self-study book, but miracles can exist only when there is a witness there. Through learning ACIM we feel, “I am safe. Nothing can threaten me. I don’t need to defend by using ego. The freedom is given me.” We at CRS are here to be a witness of such quantum healing.
