Law of Trigger and Effect in A Course in Wonders

I want to thank Jason, and everyone at the Monastery again for welcoming me with such openness. I’m still amazed that I was granted this opportunity to see shining examples of the teachings of A Course in Miracles, and for the first time in a long while, I do not feel alone.

Part of me wanted to stay longer, but beneath that desire was the thought that I would be doing so for the wrong reason; as a way to avoid my problems. The stronger feeling was, and is, that my travels will continue.

Before I left, Jason asked if I had had any insights acim. What I’m about to share was not yet clear at that time; only on the drive away did it coalesce.

That morning, several lines from a Vance Joy song kept running through my head, “I never should have told you, never should have let you see inside. Don’t want it troubling your mind, won’t you let it be?” This confused me as I could not think of anything that I had said that I felt regret for.

Eventually, the phrase, “don’t want it troubling your mind” stood out. This reminded me that the most prominent fear I had in coming to the Monastery was that I would somehow interfere with its residents’ peace of mind, simply by my presence alone. This belief that I could negatively affect other people’s state of mind has been with me for many years, and has colored many of my past experiences and relationships.

This fear left my awareness soon after I arrived. On the drive away it rose again, but I remembered David saying in one of his videos that minds cannot attack. I cried and laughed, and now feel as if the belief is being (has been?) released.

There are other things that happened that felt important, but I can’t think of them right now.

While many of us have already been brought up to believe that prayer involves asking to Lord to simply help, save yourself, fix issues and bring us things in this world, that’s incorrect prayer or its purpose. Prayer in A Program in Miracles (ACIM) is quite different and very beautiful. Greater than a song, it is wondrous exchange of Love and thanks between God and His Projects that employs the forgiveness process to correct your brain before Prayer Song is all that remains. It’s the admission home therefore understanding correct prayer, and forgiveness, may be worth the amount of time in retraining the mind.

Prayer is exchanging (sharing) a Tune of Love and Formation or judgments of the ego based on what you request (agree with) in the mind. There is number other way. In the Program, your brain (content) is separate between Lord and the pride; and you are picking constantly with a part as reason for effect.

Types (all things with this world) are miscreations sending the ego’s judgmental thought system. We’ve managed to get up (miscreated that world) and may give it down any time by improving your brain (forgiveness). Correct prayer needs this modification of your brain as Lord has nothing related to forms.

What Prayer is Maybe not:

When you are usually determining, everything you require when you hope is what counts. Whenever you plead in prayer to own Lord fix a questionnaire problem with another kind problem, you are wondering the vanity mind for help (not God). Those types and needs are regarded more important than God’s Enjoy that will remain concealed to the degree you select the illusion.

All outside points (forms) are needs. Different labels are wants, wishes, status, problems, vomiting, human love (special relationships), gifts and targets nowadays, etc. They’re everything you choose as alternatives for God’s Love and the pride will distort the objective of prayer by with them to further the illusion. Thus, prayer cannot be about “forms” or “needs” in just about any way.
