The Fortieth Principle of A Course in Miracles

The miracle acknowledges everyone as your brother and mine. It is a way of perceiving the universal mark of God (T-1.I.40:1-2). Miracles occur in the context of separation in order to facilitate the undoing of separation. This can also be understood as scenes from a dream that facilitate awakening from the dream. They are babyContinue reading “The Fortieth Principle of A Course in Miracles”

The Thirtieth Principle of A Course in Miracles

By recognizing spirit, miracles adjust the levels of perception and show them in proper alignment. This places spirit at the center, where it can communicate directly (T-1.I.30:1-2). By affirming our identity as spirit and de-emphasizing our identification with the body, the miracle brings all levels of perception into alignment with Truth. This creates a senseContinue reading “The Thirtieth Principle of A Course in Miracles”

A miracle is a universal blessing from God through me to all my brothers. It is the privilege of the forgiven to forgive (T-1.I.27:1-2). Miracles extend through Jesus to all the world, which makes clear the interconnectedness of all life without consideration of the limits imposed by space and time. Jesus blesses us now; ChristsContinue reading “The Twenty-Seventh Principle of A Course in Miracles”

The Twenty-Sixth Principle of A Course in Miracles

Miracles represent freedom from fear. “Atoning” means “undoing.” The undoing of fear is an essential part of the Atonement value of miracles (T-1.I.26.1-3). The shift in perception that the miracle creates in our mind is always a shift away from fear and towards love. The actual move may be only incidental or appear insignificant. ItContinue reading “The Twenty-Sixth Principle of A Course in Miracles”
