Join for A Course In Miracles from 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Using the messages to guide us in the day-to-day practices that help us reach the peace and love that we all can achieve. It is encouraged to share your personal experiences with like-minded participants.
Calgary First Spiritualist Church is grateful to Ben Cheong for leading the Tuesday night ongoing discussion group, A Course In Miracles (ACIM). There are many approaches to teaching ACIM and Ben’s focus is on how its messages can guide us in the day-to-day practices that help us reach the peace and love that we all can achieve. ACIM is not about saying yes to Love, nor about saying no to Love. Pure and perfect Love and Peace is who we really are – there is no need to proclaim this any further. It is far more important to work on the reasons that prevent us from experiencing this state in every moment.
What is it that can be done to bring eternal peace and love to ourselves? This work and its subsequent healing takes place through the practice of forgiveness with the help of the Divine. Indeed, forgiveness is the center of the practice of ACIM. Peace is always present in us, full and complete. Our suffering and misery, and other such blocks, can be likened to clouds that obscure the sunlight. Even though we sometimes cannot see the sun directly, the sun is always present. Depending on the weather conditions, we may experience the full strength of the sun, a diffuse glow in the sky or the inky darkness of a storm. Have we forgotten that we are the sun? The goal of A Course in Miracles is to remove these blocks to our awareness of Love and Peace through healing our minds. A Miracle is about changing our minds through the guidance of the Divine against the ego’s plan of reinforcing separation.
