ACIM Miracle Principles

As per the CE edition of ACIM, a miracle is:

A divine healing of the mind, which takes place either through us or within us, in which someone is released from painful patterns of thinking that he or she has been locked into. The main usage is that miracles are ‘expressions of love’ (they are called this six times in the Course), in which one person expresses love to another, often in very ordinary ways, and thereby heals the perception of the other. A secondary usage refers to miracles healing our own minds: ‘A miracle is a correction factor introduced into false thinking by me. It acts as a catalyst, shaking up erroneous perception and snapping it into place’ (T-1.37.I:1-2).
