Resistance and the ACIM Path - ACIM
In this course, you will be on a journey to explore your resistance. This course is inspired by the spiritual text, A Course in Miracles.
“When we speak of "the saving illusion" or "the final dream," this is not what we mean, but here is the ego's last defense. "Resistance" is its way of looking at things; its interpretation of progress and growth.” P-2.I.:3-4
Resistance comes to us in various forms, and our ways of dealing with resistance may be different as well. Most people in need of help are often the most resistant. This often is a personal resistance to healing and progressing on their path. As much as we outwardly maintain that we would like to progress and to move forward in our lives, we like the comfort of the old brown shoe, i.e. what is known to us versus the unknown. Jesus trusts that we will move past our resistance and accept salvation. Salvation must be possible because it is the will of God. (Lesson 19).
In this course, you will be on a journey with the Holy Spirit as you look at your resistance to the study and practice of A Course in Miracles. It will be one of intention, focus, determination, and dedication.
Additionally, you will also:
- Connect with yourself by the process and practice of A Course in Miracles principles
- Commune with Holy Spirit through stillness and meditation
- Use assignments to deepen and strengthen your spiritual life
- Learn simple and easy tools you can use to remember God in your life
This course is based on the spiritual text, A Course in Miracles. You will need to have the book by the Foundation for Inner Peace to complete the reading and homework assignments.
This course is experiential, so be prepared to practice!
