A Course in Miracles begins with the introduction:
This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you may elect what you want to take at a given time.
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. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.
This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the Peace of God.
This is a completely different concept of God than the usual. You don't find this image of God in the churches of traditional Christianity. They place Jesus separate, on a pedestal, as if he is the only Son of God and all the others are bastards. Well, I believe the Bible and it says that God created us in His Image and Likeness. I am divine!
This text in the Course refers to the fact that you are love. Maybe you're not aware of that, but it's what you are and you will remain this. Nothing can change Who and What you really are. You don't have to invite love. When you become conscious of Who You Really Are, the blocks for love are gone and it flows freely through you under the most bizarre circumstances. You know that it is not from your personality, from the ego, because you feel this love even for people while the ego screams that they don't deserve it. Yes, that ego-voice keeps trying to regain control for quite a while. But it is a hopeless cause, lost on forehand. Love is irresistible. You are irresistible! That is my experience and the experience of all awakened beings I have met.
On the internet there are slide shows circulating suggesting that it would not be right to be rich and prosperous. Or that love and success and wealth don't go together. That is such false reasoning, based on the belief in lack and limitation. The whole world wants you to believe this deceit. They could just as well say that it is better to be ill as long as there are still sick people. Do you dare to be healthy in a world filled with sick people?
Why wouldn't wealth, love and success go together? Ego tries with all it's might to keep you away from your power and to deceive you into believing you are not allowed to have something.
You are always successful. You attract everything you want, even while you are using your power unconsciously. You wanted to experience a dual world of good and evil, a world of contrasts and apparently you're doing fine with that.
Even in human terms you're successful. Why do you think your non-conscious is stopping change? Because you have already achieved a lot. You are staying alive in a society that has become incredibly complex. You manage to stay alive in circumstances that are extremely complicated. You drive a car, fill in difficult forms, handle various complicated devices etc. Do you know how difficult a toilet is for someone from the African bush? It is very simple to you. Your non-conscious thinks that you are a hugely successful being and thinks lets keep it that way, why fix something that isn't broken.
So maybe you don't feel the unconditional divine love in you yet, but you probably know human love. I am sure there is someone you love. So you can imagine that the people in India, Africa and all the countries that we label as poor, will probably have someone they love. According to the reasoning of the makers of the slide shows wouldn't they have to be rich and successful? Well, apparently they are starving together in love. At least, those are the images ego is showing us. Thus demonstrating that for ego only the laws of chaos are valid.
Ego will contrive anything to keep you small and powerless. Wealth and success in the world don't mean much, but poverty and lack are completely godless. God really knows no lack. Do you think it could be His Will that we who are made in His Image and Likeness would suffer lack, get sick and die? God wants us to be rich and happy. He has given us everything to be successful in any way we want. He has placed the power to do this in us when He made us. It is the power of our Mind. Some call it the Law of Attraction. With that power you can design your life any way you want. And if you invite wealth into your life through your magnetic power, you automatically begin to ponder who you are, and why you're able to do this.
When miracles begin to manifest in your life, and you begin to realize Who You Really Are, at first you will be startled, then amazed and finally you will rule the universe. That last sentence is from the beginning of the gospel of Thomas.
That is why it is important to seek that which you experience as lack in your life. Of course everyone is seeking constantly, mankind is looking for security, peace, joy, love and influence, in short, happiness, but ego makes him look in places where it is not to be found. But even that is not wrong. Remember the way contrast operates. By knowing where happiness cannot be found, you know better where to look. And then you also recognize it better. Because happiness is very subtle. You could easily miss it if you didn't know what it isn't.
And when the time for your awakening has come, ego can roar like a lion, but you are unstoppable. Becoming conscious is guaranteed, no matter how many obstacles there may be on your path.
Through the evolution of our consciousness the masses are awakening. And that makes it easier for you to regain your power and remember God and Who You Really Are.
What is A Course in Miracles?
It is a very big book, in which I began to read in 1994. It contains exercises for a year, one for every day. These exercises teach you who you really are and what the world really is. You regain your power by surrendering.
You no longer follow the insane commands of the ego, but begin to listen to the soft, still voice of Divine Spirit in you.
Before I describe the effect the Course has on your life, I would like to say something about God.
Just like many people, I found it difficult to use the word God. Even though I vaguely believed in a higher power, I disliked Christianity before The Course in Miracles came into my life. Despite a high occurrence of this word in the book and even worse in my eyes at that time, the name of Jesus, I bought it, after a couple of encounters with it.
After some time of studying the Course, I realized who and what God really is, and I was very amused about my resistance. I had let myself be influenced by stupid, angry people who did not understand the word at all and used it wrongly, and by the ignorance of traditional religion, to bar from my life the most valuable thing there is! Therefore I would say to those people who dislike the word God: let no one take God from you. They don't know what they are talking about, but it is a word with powerful vibrations if rightly used. Our non-conscious has great respect for this word, no matter what our intellect thinks.
What does the Course do? When I began to apply the lessons miracles started to happen in my life and now I live in a completely different world than before. It is indescribable. Every attempt to describe it will be insufficient. For now let it suffice to say that all my relationships have become loving and wonderful. Not because the people in my life have changed (though undoubtedly they have), but because I have changed. I discovered I could not change the world, but I could let the cause of it be changed. And that cause is me!
Also I don't have to worry about anything. That doesn't mean that I don't, because I just can't stand this world. As I see it that is a prerequisite for salvation. Many people say to me "it's not that bad". Well, to me it is. I am the children who are being tortured and killed, I am the woman in Africa who I saw on tv, who was raped till her womb was hanging outside her body, I am the insane people who slaughter others, I am all those people who are so identified with their little self they don't realize their connection to All That Is.
So my meaningless thoughts show me a meaningless world and for a moment I am totally devastated by what I see. Of myself I can do nothing and I need help. Fortunately help is at hand. I only have to ask and it is given.
For instance, I was sitting in Amsterdam, when a girl walked past. I could see that she once must have been very beautiful. Now she was very thin, had needle marks all over her arms and legs, signs of skin diseases indicating aids, and I did not even know if she was alive or dead. Sometimes I cannot tell the difference. The picture was so disturbing, I immediately asked the Holy Spirit to let me see this with the eyes of the Christ. Then something wonderful happened: suddenly I saw a beautiful being of light. I had seen people in light before, but it was always white light. This time I saw all colors of the rainbow. It was spectacular.
The verification of the miracle is the denial of it. For that reason and more, I usually don't share the miracles I experience. The teaching is for those who have ears to hear as Jesus said. The pearls are for those who value them so much, they do not find the testimonials of others sufficient and make an effort to obtain them themselves.
The greatest miracle I would like to share here is my transformation. God has truly done a great work in me. I think that if God was able to change me and free me from my arrogance and fear, originated in pain, everyone will definitely be saved.
Evil wants you to fight it. It derives its power from your belief in it. That's why there is so much propaganda for this. Light dispels darkness, it doesn't fight it. The Course teaches you to laugh about dualism and to let go of every belief in it.
How A Course in Miracles (ACIM) is used in the Trans4mator.
In the Trans4mator the principles of ACIM are the basis for the affirmations and the world view to replace the ego-conditioning. It is combined with touching energy points on the body. This is derived from the ancient Chinese Meridian forms of therapy, based on the theory that change is possible by dissolving blocks in the energy system of the body. The points that are rubbed, pressed on or tapped on, are the same as the ones treated with acupuncture.
Also, by Divine Inspiration I have been guided to use certain kriya yoga breathing exercises and body postures (asana's), that are helpful in strengtening concentration and purifying the nadi's (energy knots in the meridians). With the help of the energetic techniques we first validate our world of experiences and then we turn the switch also using affirmations that serve to change our beliefs.
We learn to trust only in our Divine Spirit for healing, but these energy techniques are a great help in this process.
