ACIM Miracle Principles

When I think of miracles, I think of spontaneously healing the sick, raising the dead, walking on water and events or happenings that are beyond human comprehension, understanding, and that are not bound by time or space.

A Course in Miracles takes a different approach to this, although the above is not excluded from what ACIM defines, but it goes beyond the spectacular that we are used to associating with miracles.

Based on this, I thought it pertinent to include what ACIM says about miracles, so as to enlighten your mind to more possibilities without limits.

As per the Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course In Miracles, a miracle is defined as follows:

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).
