We want to get to know you, so comment below and share with the community: #1 Where you're at with your ACIM jounrey (ex. I'm new to ACIM) #2 What do you want to get out of being in the Ashram? #3 For fun, what do you like to do? #4 Take a pic of your meditation/study spot!
I’m a beginner. I am on lesson 167. From this group, I am hoping to get a different perspective as mine are leaning towards dogmatic religious, and I am open to a new way of looking at things and a better inner -standing. Spending time with my chosen group that’s what I do for fun, like-minded people and travel.
Laura, thank you so much for sharing. I am working through perceived pain on and off for years and some days when I’m in agreement with ACIM, I am healed but then at times seem to pull the pain back in. Your story is incredible. ❤️🙏

I just watched Doreen Virtue give warning on the dangers of ACIM and it’s still triggering a lot of unresolved pain in me of feeling beat up and terrorized by the religious & made to doubt myself and doubt my own inner guidance. On the surface level I’ve always been a free spirit and followed my heart regardless if I’m feeling doubt or fear……so I have allowed fear & doubt to exist within me but just tried not to let it stop me (if that makes sense) But on a deeper level…..It’s bringing up ALOT of pain and sadness and making me feel SO contracted & heavy because I just want to be completely FREE of doubt & fear and always feeling defeated like I just can’t be completely free 😞 I think I’m on track and start seeing a light at the end of the tunnel then bamm……I’m knocked back down again with alot of intrusive negative angry thoughts about God & frustration for still not being free from these doubts & fears that have me wavering, getting tossed around so much, controlled by religious programming
Sometimes we (others and ourselves) can be legalistically religious in our opinions and push them out to others. I have doubted many times things that at one time felt deeply true only to be confused by something I read or heard or a video I watched. I bring it back in to see where it is me projecting out or maybe a hidden program. Then I ask “Is this true?” Or “Show me the truth.” The answer always comes. if I KNEW (not opinion and not belief system) the answer and then doubted it, I go back to the Knowing. Doubt will come to grow us.

Hi there, wondering what edition of the ACIM book I should start with, the original text, the one that includes workbook and teachers guide, or is there an updated version I should be looking for. PS: I'm in Canada if anyone has a seller recommendation. Thank you.
I have both the blue edited and ACIM with black cover with the pearls on it. I, personally, like the black - Original Version better. It resonates with me and is easier to follow. Personal preference…. I should add, I read the chapters that coincide with the lesson. For example Lesson 200 I read chapter 18 IV (24-31).
"What does forgiveness do? In truth it has no function, and does nothing. For it is unknown in Heaven. It is only hell where it is needed, and where it must serve a mighty function." (W.200.6.1-4) Thoughts are Hell causing the world to need forgiveness. Forgiveness is “unknown in Heaven”. Pretty massive statement.
@Claire Sewell yes. I see where the mind appears to be a trickster, yet it is only me. I am doing it to myself and projecting it out to the world and believing, at times, that something out there is causing it. It’s a silly dream. It’s a blessing to realize this so it can be corrected. 🙏
@Stacy Urban oh I know this well. I was going to Louise Hay or Julia Cannon books for healing and recently realized they are not the answer, that is only prolonging my suffering. Now from a new perspective, at times I still have pain, I now remember it’s my perception. If the physical is not the Real aspect then how can pain and suffering be true? I’m am not the body.
I went through the Holy relationship and Sacred sexuality. It is a game changer, a new way for me to look at relationships with my-self and others. I won’t go into detail on the “experience” as we each will have our own in the manner it is meant to present itself, I will say there is a depth of inner peace and a physical relaxation that I’ve never experienced before. I will come back to this video for the meditation. There is also an energy within that feels new, yet I know it’s always been. The heart space is now very expansive. This is the Love I wish for all humanity. Thank you ❤️.
We have authority over our thoughts. It may not always appear to be true while in the midst of a mind attack, but even then we can choose. This is how powerful we are. I loved this clip- thank you for sharing.🙏❤️
I've just finished listening to the Holy Relationships workshop, the Q&A portion. Aaron briefly mentions that people with higher energy levels can transfer their higher energy level to people with lower energy level through sexual intimacy. I immediately thought of the gurus, like Choudhury and Jois (there are many others) who sexually exploited their students (mostly women), probably with this type of teaching. It's not hard to see how vulnerable, young, naive women - especially in the 70's and 80's - could have been taken in by gurus who used kundalini and tantric teachings to satisfy their own needs, as well as have power and control over others. I sure hope guru worship is a thing of the past! They're just people, after all. Nothing here to worship.
I’m looking from a different perspective…if you are NOT coming from a “special relationship” aspect and participating in sex in order to give to the other, not take, then a transfer of energy is positive. If you are in a special relationship to take your own sexual satisfaction and pleasure from another it is a dense energy. What is the intention? To give or take?
