Learning Beyond What's In ACIM

Sometimes I write about topics that are not mentioned in A Course in Miracles but which come out of my experiences with the Holy Spirit (Awareness of Truth in my mind). Sometimes this prompts emails from readers who want to know where they can read about that topic in ACIM. Some seem to be genuinely interested in reading ACIM’s take on the topic. Others seem to imply that because it is not mentioned in ACIM it is not really appropriate for me to write about as part of spiritual practice. For…See More

Ask: Is a matter-of-fact experience akin to what ACIM calls "Innocence"?

“I live - by choice - in a very quiet rural area. Every summer the house next to mine is used by a family of brothers from New York City… I can always tell when the youngest brother is around by the level of noise coming from the house - yelling, non-stop talking, and extremely loud music… For four summers now I have experienced an intense emotional charge in reaction to this "barbarian" intrusion…I have essentially demonized these people in my mind, making them bad, wrong etc. My anger knows…See More

Sue Oliver commented on Elizabeth Cronkhite's blog post Ask: Can you comment of the satisfaction of accomplishment as a trap?
"I thought this was a very interesting question and points to the subtlety of ACIM practice. I mean, the experience of satisfaction doesn't necessarily reflect the ego imho.  It could be experienced as a feeling of love and appreciation for…"

Ask: Can you comment of the satisfaction of accomplishment as a trap?

“The other day was for me one of those high energy days where I found myself engaged in one project after another, mostly home improvement and maintenance type things. I felt no resistance and at the end of the day I experienced what is typically referred to as "the satisfaction of accomplishment" - a type of high that most people regard as oh so healthy. While there is nothing wrong in taking care of business, being creative etc., there can be a negative flip side if, on those languid days…See More

Ask: What does it mean to tell your brother he is right even when he is wrong?

“I was wondering if you could open up or shed some light and clarity on the following statement Jesus makes . . . .‘When you correct a brother, you are telling him that he is wrong. He may be making no sense at the time, and it is certain that, if he is speaking from the ego, he will not be making sense. But your task is still to tell him he is right.’ (A Course in Miracles, T-9.III.2)I'm not sure what he means when he says ‘But your task is still to tell him he is right’ and how this would…See More

The Ego is Benign

One of the things I help my clients sort out is what is the neutral personality of the self and what is the ego (personal thought system). They are confused because the ego is the thought system in their mind that tells them that the self is their reality and that they need to measure themselves by the self. So it’s hard for them to see that the self – the body and personality – is neutral and that it is the ego that is not neutral. For example, clients will say something like, “I know it’s ego…See More

In the Turnaround

When I was a young child sometimes when I played alone I would experience a reassuring, comforting Presence with me. I felt in those experiences that everything would always be okay. These experiences were very rare. I had a happy, secure childhood and I had no conscious need to seek reassurance. But of course I was still having the human experience of everyday lack and insecurity. I was unconsciously open to Truth at those times. These experiences seemed very natural so I didn’t question them.…See More

Between Me and Me

Each time I read A Course in Miracles different concepts stood out for me. Concepts would sink in, I’d move past them, and I was ready to learn new ones. The last time I read ACIM for myself was as I translated it into plain language. Then one lesson was driven home to me over and over again: This whole process to peace was between me and me. My sense of conflict was not between me and a world outside of me. It was not between me and a god outside of me. All of my conflict was occurring only…See More

Ask: Is the fear of not existing the "mother of all fears"?

“I just finished reading over your 3/23/16 blog (http://acimmentor.blogspot.com/2016/03/love-peace-and-joy-as-effects.html) in which you mentioned having a terrifying experience of the ‘fear of not existing’. I was recently thinking about a former friend who had created a persona which expressed itself as an obnoxious role he was compelled to play in all his interactions with others. I thought that he was so…See More

As Though It Should Be Different

“Dreams are perceptual temper tantrums, in which you literally scream, "I want it thus!" And thus it seems to be. And yet the dream cannot escape its origin. Anger and fear pervade it, and in an instant the illusion of satisfaction is invaded by the illusion of terror. For the dream of your ability to control reality by substituting a world that you prefer is terrifying. Your attempts to blot out reality are very fearful, but this you are not willing to accept. And so you substitute the fantasy…See More

The ACIM Student and Being Different

A reoccurring theme with many serious students of A Course in Miracles is how they have felt different all of their lives. Some are okay with this; others still want to be accepted and to fit in. The difference can show up as having been more perceptive than the average person; having a psychological orientation; never accepting what the religion of their family of origin taught; being more sensitive and intuitive; always sensing that there was something more than the world had to offer, etc.…See More

The Itch to Share and Learning What You Teach

Apparently my last article (http://acimmentor.blogspot.com/2016/05/your-itch-to-share-is-your-own-desire.html) was not clear because I received several questions and comments about it. So I will attempt to clarify and answer some questions here. The point of the article was that one’s urgency, or “itch”, to share what they learn while studying A Course in Miracles is their own desire to “get” what…See More

Your Itch to Share is Your Own Desire to Learn

When I began as a student of A Course in Miracles over 3 decades ago I was itching to share what I learned with everyone. I didn’t, though, because I knew how much I hated it when others proselytized. Even if I didn’t mean to convert anyone I knew that’s how my sharing would be perceived. I also knew that if I shared what ACIM really teaches others would think I was nuts. I knew how radical it was and I only trusted it myself because I’d experienced Revelation and miracles early on. In fact…See More

Thanks Elizabeth! I'm glad you're here. Your blog and work is helping me a lot in this process. Recieve loving greetings from Mexico.

Hello Liz, thank you so much for mentoring "the rest of us" learning the new  thought system of ACIM. I am an avid reader of your PLACIM and really enjoyed your podcast on the 4 Habits, not to mention tuning into your archived phone sessions.  As I have mentioned to a couple of other people here on ms.com, I have been reading, re-reading and going through the "practices" in Henry Grayson's book "Mindful Loving." Some of themhave been quite helpful in eliminating the most troublesome ego interruptions that our personal thought systems generate willy-nilly 24x7. 

Anyway, thanks again for accepting my friend request. 

Blessings to you, Liz.
