Correct False Thinking and Reach Enlightenment

“Miracles are thoughts and I am the corrector of false thinking. You have been made ready for this correction and your belief in correction, or atonement, is the final belief that must be put into practice.” (ACOL, T2:12.1)

This definition of atonement is only slightly different from “undoing”—correction. Here Jesus is emphasizing that when we accept atonement for ourselves (and also offer it to others), we will be freed of false thinking. Think what a great promise this indeed is! To have our false thinking corrected is to have the ego wear away. The ego is no more! Now we can get someplace.

Jesus encourages us to have a miracle-minded frame of mind. Perhaps we don’t fully understand what this means, but it is simply that we live in the best reality that we can imagine. Life works out, and when it seems not to do so, we call upon a miracle to right things. The miracle is always there for us. Our perception of that miracle may take a while in the working out, but the miracle will always heal, always set us right. We need only ask, because we are definitely asking in God’s Will.

So atonement is correction of the way that we have previously thought, the falsity that has engulfed us. Let us be grateful today that there is a way out of the separation, that the elevated Self of form awaits, that Christ-consciousness awaits.

When our minds are right, we will no longer project illusions, but will experience the real world by our projections, projections that make our perceptions of this world. We cannot know what this means until we experience Christ-consciousness, but then the miracle happens, and we know that we are seeing for the first time.

    1. ACOL is short for A Course of Love, which many view as a sequel to A Course in Miracles. Again the author is Jesus (as many believe). A Course of Love was channeled around the turn of this century to Mari Perron, who lives in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. A combined edition (there were originally three volumes) was published last fall. Please read my “About Miracles Each Day” and notice the Table of Contents to this blog.

      1. Jesus cannot be channeled . . . The Bible is the only authoritative Word of God. If something isn’t scriptural, I steer clear. May God speak to you and give you wisdom concerning this . . . Blessings. ❤
