Here's another angle on the problem of regarding ACIM as "non-duality."

In ACIM we're told that God is a creator, and has created sons. You are one of those sons, which means you are a child of God. It...

11. Again, why A Course in Miracles is not non-duality

Monday, Jan 10, 2022 2074 words 9 mins 13 secs

Most people have an idea of what duality means. Usually a world of many separate things. Separate objects, separate bodies. A count beyond one.

This however isn't a full enough definition. Duality is also a matter of NOT SHARING....

10. The anti-individuality self-destruction agenda

Tuesday, Jul 27, 2021 1674 words 7 mins 26 secs

There is a non-duality model which is frequently projected on ACIM's teachings. It suggests that in truth there is only "one", and that in the separation from God many individuals were formed. This however is very unlike what ACIM actually...

9. Duality is not what you think it is

Thursday, Jul 01, 2021 2366 words 10 mins 30 secs

While we talk of non-duality and whether ACIM is non-dualistic, many people also make mention of duality as if knowing what duality is. But duality is not what you think it is.

We very loosly and vaguely describe duality as there...

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 2354 words 10 mins 27 secs

The idea of non-duality is an attempt to describe reality or the nature of God. What is really real and really exists. At first we have the idea of duality or polar opposites. Then we reach the idea that the...

7. The many benefits of recognizing individuality

Tuesday, Apr 17, 2018 294 words 1 mins 18 secs

Everything in the Course makes so much more sense to me now that I see there are MANY INDIVIDUALS in God's creation.

1) Recognizing that you and your BROTHER each have your own mind and your own free will

2) Recognizing that...

6. You have a self - the ego is NOT individuality

Friday, Apr 06, 2018 557 words 2 mins 28 secs

The ego is NOT the idea of being an individual self. It is in fact the idea of DENYING your self, attacking your self, destroying yourself, and trying to kill your self.

The ego is the very idea of imprisoning your...

5. ACIM is STILL not non-duality

Thursday, Mar 29, 2018 606 words 2 mins 41 secs

Here is even more proof.

God created free-willed individual souls. That is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE if God is purely a concept of "no parts" or "a single thing". Even ONENESS cannot mean "one thing", because a "one thing" does NOT create "separate...

4. Is "God Is" enough of a teaching? How about nonduality? Oneness?

Monday, Mar 26, 2018 719 words 3 mins 11 secs

When we talk of duality, non-duality, pure-non-duality, we're talking concepts.

Duality means polar opposites (good/bad, right/wring, up/down etc)

Non-duality usually means both opposites are one thing. This also usually means the opposites still exist, ie the world is real, but it's all...

1. Further proof God created individuals and is not non-duality

Thursday, Dec 14, 2017 148 words 0 mins 39 secs

God, Who encompasses all being, created BEINGS (plural) who have everything INDIVIDUALLY, but who want to share it to increase THEIR (plural) joy.

Nothing real can be increased except by sharing. (this is very key, God HAD to share ie create...
