The social network for students and teachers of "A Course in Miracles"
I thought it would be good to have a space dedicated to asking what ACIM means in the parts we find more difficult to grasp (we all probably know some of the sentencing can be quite difficult to understand, for example: “the cause a cause is made by its effects” (T-28.II.1;2), etc, you get the idea..)
What is your interpretation of this:
"An individual may ask for physical healing because he is fearful of bodily harm. At the same time, if he were healed physically, the threat to his thought system might be considerably more fearful to him than its physical expression. In this case he is not really asking for release from fear, but for the removal of a symptom that he himself selected." (pg. 164)
*I'm looking for a 'literal' translation; not the metaphysical meaning. Basically, I'm not after the concept but the mathematical proposition/s if that makes any sense.
