Introduction to A Course In Miracles
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 can 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.
A personal note:
No matter what your fundamental beliefs are, A Course In Miracles IS Communication with God. Communication with God is Life. Nothing without it is at all. The Mind training lessons are a transformational curriculum in Self-realization, through Love and forgiveness. This free online ACIM urtext version is available to assist you in this effort. The Urtext version is mostly for teachers and students who are well versed in the terminology of The Course, but it can and will help you, right here and right now. Jesus would tell us that, “You are the Light of the World” and “I am always with you”. Take comfort in His Course In Miracles, for as you awaken to the Remembrance of God, you will see that you have never really been alone.
Making ACIM freely available to use online and as a pdf, has inspired gratitude in me for God, Jesus and most of all you.
Enjoy using this site.
