A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is just a non-dualistic spirituality which contains some guidelines about the psychotherapy of the split mind. Understanding these metaphysical aspects assists in the practical application of the principles contained in ACIM when making choices. Without actual application, these principles are just ideas; but with application they become an experience, and experience changes everything. The metaphysical portion is a great identifier of the ego’s judgmental thought system along with a heavenly reminder of what is true about ourselves.
Considering metaphysical descriptions in writing and becoming aware of the attributes is of great benefit in knowing everything you are choosing both for and against. Keep them handy, and refer in their mind often as you navigate the choices in your life.
Below are a few very easy points to consider about the metaphysical aspects of ACIM:
The Un-Healed Mind – the super-unconscious mind is where in actuality the “tiny mad idea” of separation began. It is obtainable via the conscious awareness of what is going on in your life. The ego doesn’t want you to consider that the idea was just a choice course in miracles movie, but the mind remembers where it came from. It naturally returns to peace once 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 because it divides out. Remember the ego’s judgment above: Separation is just a sin punishable by death. For having separated, it now places guilt in the mind; and says you need to be fearful of the now vengeful God who wants to kill you for what you’ve done. The kill or be killed (one or the other) ego judgments as seen in the sub-conscious and conscious behaviors begin to make sense considering their origin in the mind.
The Right-Mind – the split mind and the two conflicting thought systems is extremely evident. Compare the two sides to learn everything you are choosing in just about any given moment. These very clearly illustrate the psychotherapy of the mind and having lists causes it to be readily apparent why one system of thinking hurts and one other heals. You can only pick one thought system, or interpretation, at the same time as it is obviously one or the other. You still retain your choice maker. Which are you going to choose?
The ego wrong mind is based on judgment and separation from others going back again to the original separation idea. That separation sin now punishable by death which also includes the start of guilt and fear. Whenever you choose the judgmental ego as cause, your effect is:
victim/victimization – judgment – projection – addiction – grievances – hate – anger – war – specialness – death – forgive to destroy – sin – fear – guilt – special relationships
The Holy Right Mind is based on sharing and oneness and returning the mind back again to the peace of God and out from the illusion of choice. This says that the error never occurred and you are still as God created you. There is nothing else. Whenever you choose the Holy Spirit as cause, your effect is:
True forgiveness – Holy Relationship – Holy Spirit Judgment – Shared Interest – Sameness – Healing – Forgiveness – Love – Peace – Life – Sinlessness – Guiltlessness – Fearlessness – Oneness – Truth – Knowledge – Heaven
