Recently I continued with A Course In Miracles (ACIM) and I now reached the first review
If I apply the content to itself, that means
- My thoughts about the course and the contents mean nothing
- I do not understand the course
- There can be no knowledge/understanding/wisdom
So why bother with anything? This doesnt sound right. Maybe the course assumes a rather blunt mindset and thus oversimplifies things or doesnt give exceptions?
Especially the 3rd lesson confuses me.
**I do not understand anything I see.**
²How could I understand what I see when I have judged it amiss? ³What I see is the projection of my own errors of thought. ⁴I do not understand what I see because it is not understandable. ⁵There is no sense in trying to understand it. ⁶But there is every reason to let it go, and make room for what can be seen and understood and loved. ⁷I can exchange what I see now for this merely by being willing to do so. ⁸Is not this a better choice than the one I made before? (https://acim.org/acim/en/s/454#3:1-8 | W-51.3:1-8)
Moreover, I dont really get the idea about "my thoughts" and "the thoughts I share with God" either. In my understanding, I am completely engulfed in the Universe and it is within everything that is, including my thoughts. What is meant by this difference?
