Over 40 years back, a psychologist from Columbia University began to channel revelations from a spiritual entity that she was convinced was Jesus himself. She and her assistants produced teachings that filled countless empty pages over a period of seven years which later became “A Course In Miracles.”
The psychologist was a Jewish lady named Helen Schucman, and she told people that Jesus Christ himself was her own spirit guide for these lessons and teachings course in miracles books. These lessons were supposed to provide credence for folks to discover that these were the only real ones in control of their particular feelings, attitudes, actions, and destinies. The teachings took many penalties of actions from the equation. Indeed, a hallmark of the ACIM course is that evil itself does not exist. The ACIM teachings insist that by training your mind properly, you can learn that there’s no such thing as evil and so it is really a perception or a thing that other folks have set around frighten and control those things and thoughts of those people who are not effective at thinking for themselves. ACIM insists that the only thing that does exist is pure love and that innocent minds and spiritually right thinking will not allow anything like evil to exist.
These ideas and beliefs angered many individuals who belonged to a few of the major faiths because, while they espoused many of the same principles, this course also sought to have people feel that evil is not real and therefore sin can also be not real. ACIM itself tries to have people believe in the sanctity of right and wise beliefs and behavior and in the truth that nothing can harm you until you believe so it can. New Age gurus were quick to know these concepts because many of the New Age religions are based not on sin and redemption but the energy of one’s own mind and spirit.
ACIM possesses some teachings about how exactly to rid yourself of angry and negative emotions that are flooding your daily life with problems and creating illness and unhappiness day by day. A Course In Miracles teaches you that you are in charge of these feelings and they are only hurting you. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to rid them from your daily life for your own personel happiness and prosperity.
