Over 40 years ago, a psychiatrist from Columbia University started to channel revelations from a spiritual entity that she was convinced was Jesus himself. She and her assistants produced teachings that filled a huge selection of 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 bookstore. These lessons were supposed to supply credence for folks to discover that they were the only real ones in control of their very own 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 the mind properly, you are able to learn that there surely is no such thing as evil and so it is a perception or something that other people have set as much as frighten and control what and thoughts of those people who are not effective at thinking for themselves. ACIM insists that the 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 people 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 genuinely believe that evil is not real and therefore sin can 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 if you don’t believe so it can. New Age gurus were quick to understand these concepts because many of the New Age religions are based not on sin and redemption but the ability of one’s own mind and spirit.
ACIM does offer 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 will be in charge of these feelings and they are only hurting you. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to rid them from your daily life on your own happiness and prosperity.
