Still "Doin' It" after all these years (breathing)
A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is a non-dualistic spirituality which includes a set of guidelines regarding the psychiatric therapy of the divided mind. Understanding these metaphysical aspects aids in the useful application of the principles found in ACIM when making choices. Without actual program, these principles are just ideas; using application they become an experience, and experience changes everything. The metaphysical part is an excellent identifier of the ego's judgmental thought system as well as a heavenly reminder of what is true about ourselves.
Looking at metaphysical descriptions on paper and becoming aware of their attributes is of great benefit in knowing what you are choosing both for and against. Bear them handy, and make reference to them often as you get around the choices in your own life.
Here are some very simple points to consider about the metaphysical aspects of ACIM:
The Un-Healed Thoughts - the super-unconscious mind is where the "tiny mad idea" of splitting up began. It is accessible via the conscious awareness of what is going on in your lifetime. The ego doesn't want you to remember that the idea was merely a choice; but the mind remembers where it came from. It naturally results to peace when you choose the Holy Spirit Right Mind.
The Split Mind - the unconscious mind contains sin, fear and guilt from that original separation idea. This is actually the basis of the ego's thought system of judgment as it divides away. Remember the ego's judgment above: Splitting up is a sin punishable by loss of life. For achieveing separated, it now places sense of guilt in the brain; and states you must be fearful of the now vengeful God who wants to kill you for what you've done. The particular kill or be killed (one or the other) self confidence judgments as observed in the sub-conscious and conscious behaviors get started to make sense considering their origin in the brain.
The Right-Mind - the split brain and the 2 inconsistant thought systems is very evident. Evaluate the two edges to know what you are choosing in any given instant. These very evidently illustrate the psychotherapy of your brain and having lists makes it readily obvious why one approach to thinking hurts and the other cures. You can only choose one thought system, or interpretation, at a time because it is always one or the other. You'll still keep the decision manufacturer. Which one will you choose?
The ego wrong brain is based on judgment and splitting up from others going back to the original separation idea. That separation bad thing now punishable by death which also contains the starting of guilt and fear. When you choose the judgmental ego as cause, your effect is:
victim/victimization - judgment - projection - dependancy - grievances - hate - anger - war - specialness - death - forgive to destroy - sin - concern - guilt - special relationships
The Holy Right Thoughts is based on sharing and oneness and returning your mind back to the peace of God and away of the illusion of choice. This particular states that the error never happened and you are still as God created you. Absolutely nothing is else. When you choose the Holy Spirit as cause, your impact is:
True forgiveness - Holy Partnership - Holy Soul Judgment - Shared Interest - Sameness - Healing - Forgiveness - Love - Peace - Life - Sinlessness - Guiltlessness - Fearlessness - Oneness - Truth - Knowledge - Bliss
I invite you to further study the metaphysical aspects associated with A Course in Wonders. Understanding their ideas and principles helps in applying them to your life as you choose your way away of the false impression. These are a arranged of guidelines from A Course in Miracles that show you what each aspect is all about. More than that, you can consider the source of both aspects and their respective intentions. When combined with how you truly feel, the ego's motivations are apparent compared against the Holy Spirit's reality.
Knowing what to choose goes quite a distance but always remember you are the one who must travel this inner path into the mind.
