7 Tips For A Course In Miracles Success
The beauty and simplicity of A Course in Miracles (ACIM) really shines through one of its major principles: The Law of Cause and Effect. This is different from the Law of Attraction, a subject on which so much has been written about these last couple of years. ACIM answers not only why things are the way they’re with the mind, but additionally how to implement these mind corrections needed to change your life. What it ultimately boils down to is the choice to change beliefs while staying in this world, or the decision to correct your brain and return home.
Affirmations are not section of A Course in Miracles because they are not essential and here’s why: There exists a “wrong” ego mind, and a “right” ego mind, both which are still part of the same ego side of the split mind. Within the ego mind (error), the wrong side is all of the negative judgments; and the proper side is all of the negative judgments attempting to convince you how wonderful it is to live within this negative world. Neither may be the truth of one’s nature nor where you are trying to return your mind, according to ACIM.
REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect is this: According to the actually use as cause, you will notice the corresponding effect. Ideas usually do not leave their source: You.

Let’s utilize this example:
Someone is feeling the effects to be “poor,” or lack, nowadays and wants to change their beliefs to will have “rich” (abundance, prosperity, money) show up. Both “poor” and “rich” are judgments of the ego using it as cause that may only produce ego effect. Ego being an unstable thought system, everything you choose as “rich” will eventually go and you also end up back with “poor.” It’s just a question of “when.”
The ego’s choice system is: (1) one or another: (2) poor or rich; and, (3) ego or God. It asks one to choose between a couple of things within the ego illusion rather than to choose out of your illusion.
This is in contrast to choosing correction of the mind (forgiveness) where both “poor” and “rich” do not exist. A choice for correction of the mind allows the Holy Spirit Right Mind to be your cause which affects the you nowadays; however, it does not have the consequences you imagine since the ego cannot relate. It returns some of the mind to peace and ends senseless worry over rich and poor. In addition, it produces effects in your life here but you will need to choose correction to see them.
Let’s look at how ACIM breaks this all into a simple set of principles based on Cause and Effect. It only includes a few components so when understood and used, they can be “mind” correcting!
Remember, in accordance with ACIM, the mind is split by the ego’s judgment that we could be separate, also called the “tiny mad idea,” or the error that never occurred. This portion of the mind is simply hidden in darkness because it banished itself from Knowledge (Heaven and Oneness) when we forgot to laugh off what cannot be true. It did not, however, separate.
So in ACIM it is not about affirmations or changing beliefs, because the mind never left God but still resides aware of Him. You can find no “belief” judgments in Love, Oneness, Heaven and Knowledge as everything may be the same, all one, and nothing to believe or judge between.
Instead, it is all about changing your internal Teacher or rather, who you are hearing for interpretation of events in this world. The only change is in the choice between the split mind (error) of the ego or the Holy Spirit Right Mind (correction) as that internal Teacher.
This is where the simplicity is evident in ACIM because there’s no convincing the ego wrong and right mind of another thought process. You simply give up what you no more want. We take action on a regular basis with ego stuff; and now we just do it with the ego beliefs themselves.
This says it all: Forgiveness is correction of the mind. In ACIM, there is nothing to forgive because no error has happened, i.e., no separation happened. What you are doing is simply returning your brain to God, where it never left, and to its natural state of peace. To achieve that is simply either which side of the split mind to listen to for interpretation of events and turning on the judgments you no longer desire to the Holy Spirit Right Mind for correction (forgiveness).
The Holy Spirit is the treatment for the separation put into your brain by God and every answer will there be looking forward to you. Atonement, forgiveness, salvation and True Perception are other words that are synonymous. You need to be willing to utilize the Holy Spirit Right Mind for interpretation of events and do the actual work of giving judgments (beliefs) to this side of the mind, via your decision maker, because you no longer want them.
It really is that simple and only confusing as a result of belief that the only choice is between ego judgments of “poor” and “rich,” to use the earlier example, rather than understanding relating to this third option being available. The choice for True Perception is to choose neither ego judgment and relinquish both for correction of your brain. This is exactly what is takes to return your brain to God.
ACIM is targeted at your choice maker in the mind. The complete point is that you’ve got a choice of which side of the mind to hear and use for interpretation. That’s all that ever happened in the first place. It was a choice to pay attention, believe and choose judgments of the ego that separation happened and the ensuing sin, guilt and fear. Judgments could be dismissed as easily as you dismiss anything else you do not want because they are not real.
A couple of things stop you from relinquishing judgments: (1) your attachment in their mind to be true and real; and, (2) not acknowledging how you feel keeps them hidden which means you don’t realize they’re judgments.
You do not “feel” in Heaven, Knowledge and Oneness. It is an event shared by One.
The decision maker may be the mechanism between the two sides of the split mind. It really is neutral, an observer and is something you should employ to watch the mind and the judgments being created by the ego. Once you realize you have used something from the ego error of the wrong or right mind, you need to be ready to hand them to the perfect solution is, or the correction, of the Holy Spirit Right Mind. It takes care of the rest because the Atonement or solution is already there. No affirmations are necessary. You are simply giving up that which you no more want. It really is, and certainly can, be that easy.
Form and Content:
The last component to know from the Course in Miracles is form and content. Form is this world and everything in it. In ACIM, form will not matter and is part of the “beliefs” to be turned over. However, you utilize everything in form, along with the judgments in your mind, as the curriculum of what to turn over for correction (forgiveness).
What does matter is content and in ACIM, content is the mind. The mind you’re using for interpretation (perception) of individuals, places, and things, etc., counts for everything. You can only have one master: (1) the Holy Spirit Right Mind (correction); or, (2) the ego wrong mind (error) and that includes both interpretations of the ego mind.
In conclusion, think about the simplicity of ACIM that is a Course in training your mind how to perceive properly. You need to return the mind to peace because the Kingdom of God is peace and you also cannot see the doorway from judgment. You only see peace in peace and while sharing peace with everyone.
All ACIM says is you have the willingness to learn how to do this, study the ideas and then put it into practice. The assist you to need will arrive; but you, my pal, must do the task of the inward journey back into the mind.
REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect is the form, or mind, you are using for interpretation will undoubtedly be your effect in this world. It’ll affect you in different ways by returning your brain back to back again to peace where you eventually start to see the illusion of choice, because no separation occurred, and elect to give it up once and for all.
