Hello world. The following was written 12/06/2017.
A brother asks, “Does anyone understand, what ACIM is saying? It seems like almost no one does.”
My response, “The key, is to switch ones focus from those outside of you, to yourself and what is happening WITHIN you. To look within at your own thoughts, emotions, and physical bodily responses, as they are happening. To stay in the here and now with the moment, looking at what is being experienced within you. As you do so, you begin to understand yourself and your own responses to the environment around you.
It would be in these moments, you may change your mind about what is being experienced or has been experienced. It is in this way, the Individual may heal themselves. In doing so, they change themselves and how they are responding to the world around them. They let go, the egoistic beliefs of lying, cheating, stealing, selfishness, victimization, blame and fear. It is in these moments, one is able to take responsibility for themselves and their own choices to think and believe as they do.
This is what ACIM is teaching, the Individual to do. To turn within themselves and look at their own choices, to think, believe, perceive, and experience as they do. It is a guide to help one understand their choices to believe in, the judgments they have accepted as being the Truth in defining themselves, their experiences, their brothers and the world they perceive. It forces one, to question. To ask themselves, if all they think and believe in to be true has been taught to them, just as it was taught to the ones before them, how do they know it is the Truth?
The very first week of lessons, point to this. Every label you use to define yourself and the world, was handed to you. Every response, was taught to you. All point, to the training we receive as children, to blindly follow and believe in the dictates being handed to us by those who we are taught are the authority. ACIM is a tool, to help the Individual break down the mental brainwashing we are indoctrinated with from birth. It is a tool, to help the Individual regain their Free Will and Sovereignty, to govern themselves as they were created to be. The gauge used, would be the Love within you. ACIM is a tool, to redirect the Individual from their head, into their heart and what resonates within them as Truth!
What you have experienced by the majority of the “spiritual” community, would be the…
