Taking a look at metaphysical descriptions in some recoverable format and becoming aware of these attributes is of great benefit in knowing what you are choosing both for and against. Keep them handy, and refer to them often as you navigate your choices in your life.
Below are a few very easy points to think about concerning 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’s going on in your life. The ego doesn’t want you to keep in mind that the idea was just a selection, but your head remembers where it came from. It naturally returns to peace whenever you pick the Holy Spirit Right Mind.
The Split Mind – the unconscious mind contains sin, fear and guilt from that original separation idea. Here is the basis of the ego’s thought system of judgment because it divides out. Remember the ego’s judgment above: Separation is really a sin punishable by death. For having separated, it now places guilt in your head; and says you should be fearful of the now vengeful God who would like to kill you for what you’ve done. The kill or be killed (one or the other) ego judgments as observed in the sub-conscious and conscious behaviors begin to produce sense considering their origin in the mind.
The Right-Mind – the split mind and the two conflicting thought systems is quite evident. Compare the two sides to learn what you are choosing in just about any given moment. acim These very clearly illustrate the psychotherapy of your head and having lists helps it be readily apparent why one system of thinking hurts and another heals. You are able to only select one thought system, or interpretation, at any given time since it is obviously one or the other. You still retain the decision maker. What type will you choose?
The ego wrong mind is based on judgment and separation from others going back to the first separation idea. That separation sin now punishable by death which also contains the start of guilt and fear. Whenever you pick 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 your brain back to the peace of God and out of the illusion of choice. This says that the error never occurred and you’re still as God created you. There’s nothing else. Whenever you pick 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
I invite you to help study the metaphysical aspects related to A Course in Miracles. Understanding their ideas and principles helps in applying them to your daily life as you select your way out of the illusion. They are a couple of guidelines straight from A Course in Miracles that report you what each aspect is all about. More than that, you are able to consider the origin of both aspects and their respective intentions. When combined with the method that you truly feel, the ego’s motivations are obvious when compared against the Holy Spirit’s truth.
Knowing what to choose goes a long way but always remember that you are usually the one who must travel this inner path to the mind. You have to do the actual application of the principles contains in A Course in Miracles and do the task of choosing. It’s as simple as that. ACIM is really a Course in your mind training!
