A Miracle in “ACIM” is a shift in perception. Simple, but profound, The Course teaches us a revolutionary way of thinking. Rather than having to continually repeat the pain of our past, we can learn to open ourselves to the possibility of infinite joy, which is available to us in every moment. All behaviour, according to The Course, is either a cry for love or an extension of love and forgiveness is the way to access it.
In the summary introduction, the text states, “This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary…The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance.”
