The course speaks from a perspective of Oneness. That means quite literally that you and all other people are ONE person - one mind, one being. It means you SHARE a mind with everyone else. It should be immediately obvious...

It basically works like this. You believe you are not loveable and are separate from the love that you ARE. You experience a sense of lacking love. This creates a false need. The need motivates you to search. You search...

The truth is not information. It is not an idea or a thought. It is not a fact, like a statement about something. It is not some piece of information you can learn mentally through studying it. It isn't a...

Practiced a little bit of `miracle working` this morning ... the 'change the dream' and 'reverse cause and effect' kind. I am reporting this just because I'm still experimenting/learning/discovering what is possible and maybe it is useful.
I had back pain...

In ACIM the idea of evil is defined as 'ego', more or less. Not just individual egos but also a collective one.

I think a lot of people have a belief that they are 'supposed' to suffer.

If you do a lot of very important things in your life, you will become dead serious.
Do unimportant things. Keep it simple and light.

"Seek and do not find" is the absolute rule of the ego's way of perceiving.
It's very simple logic.

It's possible to rationalize and justify ANY viewpoint you want to take. If you look, you will find all kinds of reasons in support of your opinion. The thing is, you won't think it's your opinion because you'll justify how...
