The social network for students and teachers of "A Course in Miracles"
Just try to remember for now that time seems to have a future still unknown to you, but it's really already done. You can't change the ego's script; all you can do is switch over to the Holy Spirit's interpretation - which is Its script. That's why J said 2000 years ago, "Who among you by worrying can add one minute to your life?" ~ The Disappearance of the Universe

Forgiveness is an attitude. Everything you learn becomes incorporated into that attitude until forgiveness happens automatically. For most people, especially during the first few years, forgiveness requires that you think about it. You become a master by having forgiving thought processes. These right-minded thoughts eventually dominate your mind instead of the ego. Using your understanding of the Course’s entire thought system contributes to and strengthens your attitude of forgiveness. ~…Continue

The secret of reawakening to your immortality is in mastering not the things of this world, but the way you look at this world. ~ The Disappearance of the Universe

It's important to remember to laugh. Remember what J says in the Text, "Into eternity, where all is one, there crept a tiny, mad idea at which the Son of God remembered not to laugh." ~ Your Immortal Reality

The Course is about the healing of your unconscious guilt by the Holy Spirit and your return to Heaven through the dynamic of forgiveness. To illustrate how much the ego resists looking at this guilt in the mind, all you need to do is consider that despite the fact that A Course in Miracles is very much about the healing of this unconscious guilt, most of the teachers of the Course never even mention it. ~ The Disappearance of the Universe…
This is phenomenal:
A friend from St. Louis just called me to share this wonderful and very helpful method of allow Higher Guideance to come through in every situation.
They keep telling me to love my body. They make it sound so easy. And there were times when I did. There were times I would see the curve of my hip and smile. Or see my own eyes light up and feel the joy in that. There were times…
I kept hearing I should love my body. As if my body is me. I would hear that I should embrace what I’ve got and strut my stuff without apology. I would hear that. Sometimes, I would do that. And it would feel good for a while….if only for a while.
The idea of thinking that God would have to make this world in order to experience duality so He could appreciate and enjoy Himself, is the equivalent of the idea that in order to experience and enjoy sex you would have to also experience getting shot in the gut. No. Pain is the result of the guilt that came from thinking you separated yourself from God, and you don't have to experience pain in order to experience the pleasure of reality. But you do have to forgive pain and suffering and…Continue

We've never said that practicing true forgiveness is easy. But the truth is simple. It's what the ego made that's complicated. And that's what needs to be undone by your forgiveness. The more the ego is undone, the easier it will get for you. ~ Your Immortal Reality

The day will come when you will awaken from the dream. And it will come a hell of a lot faster than it would have been if you weren't prepared to accept the Course. Eventually the Course's thought system will be second nature to you, and you'll be able to apply it with less and less effort. Sometimes there's no thinking at all; it's just a way of being. Other times you will have to think about the Course's ideas, which reinforces your forgiving attitude.

I sat at my desk, cross-legged in my chair, eyes closed; calling to mind the face of someone I’ve been struggling to forgive for a long time. Offering a silent apology with as much sincerity as I could find in my slowly unfurling heart for the many ways in which I had used him to embellish my story of seeking and never finding. The tale of ill-fated suffering I was learning I had woven in an effort to keep the fiction of a separate me alive all these years, while denying responsibility for…Continue
You will not find compromise with us, and you will not always like it. That doesn't matter. If we gave you everything you think you want, you'd be looking for something else a month later. You don't need us to help you feel good about a universe that was never worth the price of admission, and never will be. There is something much better to feel good about. ~ The Disappearance of the Universe www.facebook.com/DWMJF

I have been studying the Course for 3 years now…My life in the world is stressful, I have enough money to sustain myself for a few more months, and then...... Being 70 makes it difficult. I am distracted by the pressures of survival… I love the Course, it does and has sustained me. Just wonder where it fits with the fear that is eating me. - CG
It sounds like A Course in Miracles is a bunch of nice ideas for you but that you are not really experiencing Truth…Continue

You perceive yourself as being in a body, and then the body tells you what to feel. But you should be the one who tells the body what to feel. You are not in the body; the body is in your mind. When you put the mind in its proper perspective, then you're taking charge of the cause instead of being at the mercy of the effect. Then you can choose the Holy Spirit and His answer instead of the ego's questions. ~ Your Immortal Reality…
No one forgives unless he has believed in sin, and still believes that he has much to be forgiven. Forgiveness thus becomes the means by which he learns he has done nothing to forgive. Forgiveness always rests upon the one who offers it, until he sees himself as needing it no more. ~ A Course in Miracles…

The real goal isn't about dressing up your life; it's about awakening from what you THINK is your life! Then you're building your house upon the rock instead of the sand. J's message isn't about fixing up the world. When your body appears to die, what are you going to do with what you believe is the world? As far as the world is concerned, you can dress it up, but you can't take it anywhere. ~ The Disappearance of the Universe…

At the heart of A Course in Miracles, God’s only Will for us is happiness... But is it really POSSIBLE to be happy all of the time? The Course says yes, if we are willing to make the Inner Shift.
What is the Inner Shift?
The “inner shift according to Chapter 21 of ACIM is, ‘the choice to be constant in our decision for happiness.’ The Course says, we all know that we WANT happiness, but we deny it simply BECAUSE it’s the…Continue
