Over 40 years back, a psychiatrist from Columbia University started initially 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 who Jesus Christ himself was her own spirit guide for these lessons and teachings course in miracles music. These lessons were supposed to offer credence for people to find out that they were the only ones in control of their particular feelings, attitudes, actions, and destinies. The teachings took many penalties of actions out 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 is no such thing as evil and so it is a perception or a thing that others have set up to frighten and control those things and thoughts of those people who are not effective at thinking for themselves. ACIM insists that the only 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 some of the major faiths because, while they espoused most of the same principles, this course also sought to own people feel that evil is not real and therefore sin can also be not real. ACIM itself tries to own people believe in the sanctity of right and wise beliefs and behavior and in the truth that nothing can harm you until you believe so it can. New Age gurus were quick to grasp these concepts because most of the New Age religions are based not on sin and redemption but the energy of one’s own mind and spirit.
ACIM possesses some teachings about how to rid yourself of angry and negative emotions which can be flooding your lifetime 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 is your responsibility to rid them from your lifetime for your own happiness and prosperity.
