What You Really Are

The magnitude of what we really are is beyond comprehension. As we continue undoing layers of guilt, the light becomes more dominant and we are becoming more of what we really are in Truth. The Light is always there, but it gets blocked by the dark clouds of guilt. This is why the Course emphasized forgiveness. It is true forgiveness that undoes the guilt. ~ Cindy Lora-Renard, A Course in Health and Well-Being

To Make Guilty is to Make the World Real

True forgiveness undoes the error we see in others and the world by letting go of our illusory interpretations and belief in separation.  With true forgiveness, we are forgiving people not for what they’ve really done, but what they have not really done.  The reason they have not done anything is because separation is an illusion, and we are still at home in God.  Nothing happened, and our experience here in the world is only a dream.  Events in a dream are not true, they are made up. To make someone guilty then is making the dream real and reinforcing the guilt in the mind that believes in separation. ~ Cindy Lora-Renard, A Course in Health and Well-Being

Your'e Not A Victim

If it were true that something outside of you could cause you to suffer, you would certainly be a victim of the world. There is no power in that. The Course says, “I am not the victim of the world I see.”6 This is because the world is just a projection coming from your mind. There is no world outside of you. You see what you want to see, and that is all. With practice and willingness, you can learn to see right-mindedly, with Truth as your goal, and with Christ Vision, which is true vision, true perception, and innocence. ~ Cindy Lora-Renard, A Course in Health and Well-Being

You're in Charge of Your Mind

I’ve noticed in my own life how much smoother things go when I choose to let go of my own judgment on things, and let the Holy Spirit take over.  The events might not appear to change, but my experience of the event changes, and it is more peaceful.  That is worth everything.  The Course says if you don’t like how you feel, you have the power to choose.  You are in charge of your mind! ~ A Course in Health and Well-Being

The Paradox of Time

Time is holographic, yet the choices you make here appear to be linear. That's the paradox of time. In terms of the hologram, it has already happened, but in your linear experience, you've still got to do it. What you want to do is refuse tot take the linear nature of time seriously and make the only real choice you can make, which is simple. That choice overlooks the mad illusion of time. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One

Forgiveness is the End of Specialness

To follow the Holy Spirit's guidance is to let yourself be absolved of guilt. It is the essence of the Atonement. It is the core of the curriculum.
The means of the Atonement is forgiveness.
Forgiveness is the end of specialness.

The World is a Projection

A Course in Miracles teaches that the world is a projection that is coming from our own collective unconscious mind. What was in our mind on a massive metaphysical level - namely the terrible unconscious guilt we felt over the initial separation from our Source - was denied and projected outward. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One

Not About Balance

Most spiritual systems try to balance body, mind, and spirit. They're all equally important, but that's not the approach of A Course in Miracles. With the Course, you learn how to use the mind to choose between the body, which is the great separation symbol of the ego and spirit, which in the Course is perfect oneness, not to be confused with the idea of an individual soul, which is still a separation idea. ~ Love Has Forgotten No One

No Namaste for You

There are many in India who practice an idea that we’ve (Americans) have borrowed from them. You see and hear it at a lot of Unity churches in this country. It’s the idea of Namaste, which means, “The divinity in me bows down to the divinity in you.” That’s certainly a step in the right direction, but, it doesn’t go far enough.

When you say, “The divinity in me bows down to the divinity in you,” you’re limiting that person to a tiny speck of time and space. You’re making individuality real. You’re also making the two of you separate, like a subject and an object. What J did was overlook the body. It’s not that his body’s eyes didn’t appear to see other bodies. But he understood that he wasn’t seeing with the body’s eyes and that he wasn’t actually in a body. He knew what he was seeing with was his mind.  ~ Love Has Forgotten No One

Undoing Guilt is the Core of the Curriculum

A Course in Miracles states, “To follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance is to let yourself be absolved of guilt. It is the essence of the Atonement. It is the core of the curriculum.” I think I should repeat that, because I don’t think many Course students know this probably because many people who call themselves Course teachers don’t get it. “To follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance is to let yourself beabsolved of guilt. It is the essence of the Atonement. IT IS THE CORE OF THE CURRICULUM.” ~mikey

From recent Gary Renard interview:
Being in the now, well that’s a great idea, the only problem is you can’t stay in the now as long as you have this unconscious guilt that is there in your mind which prevents you from staying in the now. You might get into the now for a second, then it’s gone. Because there’s something holding you back. There is something in your unconscious mind that you can’t see, that is preventing you from really being in the now.

And that guilt is what also prevents you from hearing the Voice of the Holy Spirit more clearly. It is responsible for all the illness and sickness we see in the world. All the things that are hidden in the unconscious mind are what runs the world; it’s what’s responsible for all the madness that we see on our TV screens; all the crime and the war and the terrorism and the violence. It’s all being run by this stuff that’s in the unconscious mind that people aren’t even aware of. What the Course does, through the miracle, it actually allows the Holy Spirit to heal that for you. To actually remove this unconscious guilt from your mind, remove the ego interference, and actually set you free. That is happening every single time you practice A Course in Miracles.

Special Hate is Really Self-Hate

All people seem to know how to do is condemn their special hate objects in one way or another. Even if they don't do that very much, they find some other way to suffer and act out the ego system, through accidents and sickness and a hundred other ways - because you can project the guilt onto your own body as well as others, since all hatred is actually self-hatred anyway. ~ The Disappearance of the Universe

The Complexity of the Ego

The ego is very complex and highly individualized. I assure you the universe would have it no other way.

Better Angels of our Nature

Sometimes the idea of wrong- and right-mindedness has been spoken about profoundly. What the Course would call the wrong mind, at least on this level, Carl Gustav Jung called your "shadow"; and what the Course would call right-mindedness, Abraham Lincoln referred to as "the better angels of our nature." Only the Course puts everything in perspective. ~ The Disappearance of the Universe

Unity Church and A Course in Miracles

Charles and Myrtle Fillmore were marvelous people. They were somewhat influenced by Mary Baker Eddy, and their love for J and their loyalty to the more loving and forgiving aspects of Christianity were obvious. Still, they made every cell in the body real. Although the Course has often found a friend at Unity churches, and people can obviously do both at the same time, the two still shouldn't be confused with being the same. ~ The Disappearance of the Universe
