A Course In Miracles

THE MEANING OF MIRACLES

I. Principles of Miracles

T-1.I.1. There is no order of difficulty in miracles. 2 One is not “harder” or “bigger” than another. 3 They are all the same. 4 All expressions of love are maximal.

T-1.I.2. Miracles as such do not matter. 2 The only thing that matters is their Source, which is far beyond evaluation.

T-1.I.3. Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. 2 The real miracle is the love that inspires them. 3 In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.

T-1.I.4. All miracles mean life, and God is the Giver of life. 2 His Voice will direct you very specifically. 3 You will be told all you need to know.

T-1.I.5. Miracles are habits, and should be involuntary. 2 They should not be under conscious control. 3 Consciously selected miracles can be misguided.

T-1.I.6. Miracles are natural. 2 When they do not occur something has gone wrong.

T-1.I.7. Miracles are everyone’s right, but purification is necessary first.

T-1.I.8. Miracles are healing because they supply a lack; they are performed by those who temporarily have more for those who temporarily have less.

T-1.I.9. Miracles are a kind of exchange. 2 Like all expressions of love, which are always miraculous in the true sense, the exchange reverses the physical laws. 3 They bring more love both to the giver and the receiver.

T-1.I.10. The use of miracles as spectacles to induce belief is a misunderstanding of their purpose.

T-1.I.11. Prayer is the medium of miracles. 2 It is a means of communication of the created with the Creator. 3 Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.

T-1.I.12. Miracles are thoughts. 2 Thoughts can represent the lower or bodily level of experience, or the higher or spiritual level of experience. 3 One makes the physical, and the other creates the spiritual.

T-1.I.13. Miracles are both beginnings and endings, and so they alter the temporal order. 2 They are always affirmations of rebirth, which seem to go back but really go forward. 3 They undo the past in the present, and thus release the future.

T-1.I.14. Miracles bear witness to truth. 2 They are convincing because they arise from conviction. 3 Without conviction they deteriorate into magic, which is mindless and therefore destructive; or rather, the uncreative use of mind.

T-1.I.15. Each day should be devoted to miracles. 2 The purpose of time is to enable you to learn how to use time constructively. 3 It is thus a teaching device and a means to an end. 4 Time will cease when it is no longer useful in facilitating learning.

T-1.I.16. Miracles are teaching devices for demonstrating it is as blessed to give as to receive. 2 They simultaneously increase the strength of the giver and supply strength to the receiver.

T-1.I.17. Miracles transcend the body. 2 They are sudden shifts into invisibility, away from the bodily level. 3 That is why they heal.

T-1.I.18. A miracle is a service. 2 It is the maximal service you can render to another. 3 It is a way of loving your neighbor as yourself. 4 You recognize your own and your neighbor’s worth simultaneously.

T-1.I.19. Miracles make minds one in God. 2 They depend on cooperation because the Sonship is the sum of all that God created. 3 Miracles therefore reflect the laws of eternity, not of time.

T-1.I.20. Miracles reawaken the awareness that the spirit, not the body, is the altar of truth. 2 This is the recognition that leads to the healing power of the miracle.

T-1.I.21. Miracles are natural signs of forgiveness. 2 Through miracles you accept God’s forgiveness by extending it to others.

T-1.I.22. Miracles are associated with fear only because of the belief that darkness can hide. 2 You believe that what your physical eyes cannot see does not exist. 3 This leads to a denial of spiritual sight.

T-1.I.23. Miracles rearrange perception and place all levels in true perspective. 2 This is healing because sickness comes from confusing the levels.

T-1.I.24. Miracles enable you to heal the sick and raise the dead because you made sickness and death yourself, and can therefore abolish both. 2 You are a miracle, capable of creating in the likeness of your Creator. 3 Everything else is your own nightmare, and does not exist. 4 Only the creations of light are real.

T-1.I.25. Miracles are part of an interlocking chain of forgiveness which, when completed, is the Atonement. 2 Atonement works all the time and in all the dimensions of time.

T-1.I.26. Miracles represent freedom from fear. 2 “Atoning” means “undoing.” 3 The undoing of fear is an essential part of the Atonement value of miracles.

T-1.I.27. A miracle is a universal blessing from God through me to all my brothers. 2 It is the privilege of the forgiven to forgive.

T-1.I.28. Miracles are a way of earning release from fear. 2 Revelation induces a state in which fear has already been abolished. 3 Miracles are thus a means and revelation is an end.

T-1.I.29. Miracles praise God through you. 2 They praise Him by honoring His creations, affirming their perfection. 3 They heal because they deny body-identification and affirm spirit-identification.

T-1.I.30. By recognizing spirit, miracles adjust the levels of perception and show them in proper alignment. 2 This places spirit at the center, where it can communicate directly.

T-1.I.31. Miracles should inspire gratitude, not awe. 2 You should thank God for what you really are. 3 The children of God are holy and the miracle honors their holiness, which can be hidden but never lost.

T-1.I.32. I inspire all miracles, which are really intercessions. 2 They intercede for your holiness and make your perceptions holy. 3 By placing you beyond the physical laws they raise you into the sphere of celestial order. 4 In this order you are perfect.

T-1.I.33. Miracles honor you because you are lovable. 2 They dispel illusions about yourself and perceive the light in you. 3 They thus atone for your errors by freeing you from your nightmares. 4 By releasing your mind from the imprisonment of your illusions, they restore your sanity.

T-1.I.34. Miracles restore the mind to its fullness. 2 By atoning for lack they establish perfect protection. 3 The spirit’s strength leaves no room for intrusions.

T-1.I.35. Miracles are expressions of love, but they may not always have observable effects.

T-1.I.36. Miracles are examples of right thinking, aligning your perceptions with truth as God created it.

T-1.I.37. A miracle is a correction introduced into false thinking by me. 2 It acts as a catalyst, breaking up erroneous perception and reorganizing it properly. 3 This places you under the Atonement principle, where perception is healed. 4 Until this has occurred, knowledge of the Divine Order is impossible.

T-1.I.38. The Holy Spirit is the mechanism of miracles. 2 He recognizes both God’s creations and your illusions. 3 He separates the true from the false by His ability to perceive totally rather than selectively.

T-1.I.39. The miracle dissolves error because the Holy Spirit identifies error as false or unreal. 2 This is the same as saying that by perceiving light, darkness automatically disappears.

T-1.I.40. The miracle acknowledges everyone as your brother and mine. 2 It is a way of perceiving the universal mark of God.

T-1.I.41. Wholeness is the perceptual content of miracles. 2 They thus correct, or atone for, the faulty perception of lack.

T-1.I.42. A major contribution of miracles is their strength in releasing you from your false sense of isolation, deprivation and lack.

T-1.I.43. Miracles arise from a miraculous state of mind, or a state of miracle-readiness.

T-1.I.44. The miracle is an expression of an inner awareness of Christ and the acceptance of His Atonement.

T-1.I.45. A miracle is never lost. 2 It may touch many people you have not even met, and produce undreamed of changes in situations of which you are not even aware.

T-1.I.46. The Holy Spirit is the highest communication medium. 2 Miracles do not involve this type of communication, because they are temporary communication devices. 3 When you return to your original form of communication with God by direct revelation, the need for miracles is over.

T-1.I.47. The miracle is a learning device that lessens the need for time. 2 It establishes an out-of-pattern time interval not under the usual laws of time. 3 In this sense it is timeless.

T-1.I.48. The miracle is the only device at your immediate disposal for controlling time. 2 Only revelation transcends it, having nothing to do with time at all.

T-1.I.49. The miracle makes no distinction among degrees of misperception. 2 It is a device for perception correction, effective quite apart from either the degree or the direction of the error. 3 This is its true indiscriminateness.

T-1.I.50. The miracle compares what you have made with creation, accepting what is in accord with it as true, and rejecting what is out of accord as false.

Happy Holidays

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

Don't wait for miracles, your whole life is a miracle.

Do you believe in miracles? Well, you should. In fact, life itself is a big miracle. There are so many things that are beyond our understanding. There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail. It is a grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.

Learning is the beginning of wealth. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins. The great breakthrough in your life comes when you realize it that you can learn anything you need to learn to accomplish any goal that you set for yourself. This means there are no limits on what you can be, have or do.

Don't think about why you question, simply don't stop questioning. Don't worry about what you can't answer, and don't try to explain what you can't know. Curiosity is its own reason. Aren't you in awe when you contemplate the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure behind reality? And this is the miracle of the human mind - to use its constructions, concepts, and formulas as tools to explain what man sees, feels and touches. Try to comprehend a little more each day. Have holy curiosity.

You can move through life seeing nothing as a miracle, or seeing everything as a miracle.

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle. The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt is awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

A priori one should expect a chaotic world which cannot be grasped by the mind in any way... The kind of order created by Newton's theory of gravitation...is wholly different. Even if the axioms of the theory are proposed by man, the success of such a project presupposes a high degree of ordering of the objective world.... That is the "miracle" which is being constantly reinforced as our knowledge expands.

There lies the weaknesss of positivists and professional atheists who are elated because they feel that they have not only successfully rid the world of gods but "bared the miracles." (That is, explained the miracles. - ed.) Oddly enough, we must be satisfied to acknowledge the "miracle" without there being any legitimate way for us to approach it . I am forced to add that just to keep you from thinking that -weakened by age-I have fallen prey to the clergy.

There are actually two approaches to reside your daily life. One is as if absolutely nothing is really a miracle. The other is as if every little thing is a wonder

There are actually two approaches to reside your daily life. One is as if absolutely nothing is really a miracle. The other is as if every little thing is a wonder

The beauty of it is that we have to content ourselves with the recognition of the miracle, beyond which there is no legitimate way out.

^^^^^^^
This is quite appropriate.

I don't see what there is to be celebrated at this point.
I am waiting til the whole system crashes, but it will not.

Happy Hope Things Don't Get Much Worse, everybody!

That's what happens when you spend 20 some odd years in fantasy land. That's where we've been, in a fantasy spending our kids and grand kids future.

Then one day we arrive at a point where there is no more future because we spent it all in the past. That's where we're at now and bureaucrats attempts to avoid reaping the consequences from their stupid actions.
