Metaphysics of ACIM and the Truth



The Belief

The belief that you are in this world is very deep. It cannot be skipped over or denied—it must be looked at. It is only through a willingness to accept that the world was made as a defense against the truth, that the Truth can be returned to awareness. This is part of the core metaphysics of A Course In Miracles.

In the movie The Nines, we will see an almost perfect metaphysical analogy for the condition of the deceived mind, or ego, in this "world."

ACIM has a metaphysical story and framework that "describes" the impossible briefly and then undoes it. There is an appreciation of the importance of a thorough understanding of the metaphysics of A Course in Miracles; however, once this is achieved, almost all of our time should be spent on practical application. This is the purpose of the Mystical Mind Training Program.

Disillusionment

Being aware of the metaphysics of ACIM can help keep the next phase, which is often a period of disillusionment, gentle and quick. It is seeing that everything that was thought to be true, is false. It is a necessary step to be able to accept the plan of spiritual awakening, as orchestrated by the Holy Spirit. It is sometimes shocking and disturbing, but this is still only from the ego's point of view.

Attempted Learning

As in the movie The Island, all of their believed memories are false. All of their perceptions of reality were learned. It is truly not understandable, no matter how good we become at performing in the world. The following shows a little clip of the fear and terror first associated with even trying to learn a world.

The Holy Spirit's job is to take these deeply held beliefs and layers of learning and raise them up to be questioned and seen for what they are: false. The path of ACIM is through relationships and learning to take responsibility for sight. This can be greatly assisted through mighty companions or devoted friends.
