Over 40 years ago, a psychologist from Columbia University began to channel revelations from the spiritual entity that she was convinced was Jesus himself. She and her assistants produced teachings that filled hundreds 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 who Jesus Christ himself was her very own spirit guide for these lessons and teachings. These lessons were supposed to provide credence for individuals to discover that they certainly were the sole 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 a perception or a thing that others have set as much as frighten and control what and thoughts of those people who are not capable of thinking for themselves. ACIM insists that the thing that does exist is pure love and that innocent minds and spiritually right thinking won’t allow anything like evil to exist.
These ideas and beliefs angered many people who belonged to a number of the major faiths because, while they espoused many of the same principles, this course also sought to possess people feel that evil isn’t real and therefore sin can also be not real. ACIM itself tries to possess people believe in the sanctity of right and wise beliefs and behavior and in the fact that nothing can harm you unless you believe so it can a course in miracles. New Age gurus were quick to know onto these concepts because many of the New Age religions are based not on sin and redemption but the ability of your respective own mind and spirit.
ACIM does offer some teachings about just how to rid yourself of angry and negative emotions which can be flooding your life with problems and creating illness and unhappiness day by day. A Course In Miracles teaches you that you’re in charge of these feelings and they’re only hurting you. Therefore, it is up to you to rid them from your life on your own happiness and prosperity.
