A Course In Miracles is a self-study system of spiritual psychology contained in a three-volume book:
ACIM is the abbreviation.
The Course contains a synthesis of the teachings that lie at the core of the world’s great religions, together with sophisticated psychological insight.
It emphasises the practical application of its principles, which
focus on forgiveness and, thus, the transformational potential of the
mind. It has touched the lives of millions of people around the world.
There is no separation between God and ourselves, or, therefore, between us.
God is love, eternal and infinite, and all there is.
We are God’s one creation.
God only creates like Himself, so we remain as God created us, innocent and whole.
Only what God created is real. God did not create pain, death, guilt or fear, so although they exist in our experience, they are not real.
The Course aims at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence.
Rather than trying to change external circumstances, the Course teaches us to change our perceptions about the world.
The peace of God is reached through the practice of forgiveness.

“This course can... be summed up very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened
Nothing unreal exists
Herein lies the peace of God”
(The Introduction, A Course In Miracles)
My spiritual poem on I Am Beautiful conveys much of what I see as the key message of ACIM.
“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 Introduction, ACIM)
