ACIM Self-Study: The Function of the Miracle Worker


⁷It is essential to remember that only the mind can create, and that correction belongs at the thought level. ⁸To amplify an earlier statement, spirit is already perfect and therefore does not require correction. ⁹The body does not exist except as a learning device for the mind. ¹⁰This learning device is not subject to errors of its own, because it cannot create. (ACIM, T-2.V.1:7-10)

Parang summary ‘to ng mga previous discussions natin. Review tayo.

Only the mind can create or miscreate. Miscreate pag may error sa perception, so at the level of the mind rin dapat yung correction.

Yung spirit is perfect, so no need for correction. Kailangan lang natin is awareness to align the mind with the spirit.

Yung body naman ay neutral lang. It’s just a learning tool para malaman natin yung state of mind natin.

So ang isang miracle worker ay naka-focus sa healing of the mind, not the body.

³However, as a correction, the miracle need not await the right-mindedness of the receiver. ⁴In fact, its purpose is to restore him to his right mind. (ACIM, T-2.V.3:3-4)

Hindi kailangang maging right-minded yung tao bago siya maka-receive ng miracles. Kasi yun nga ang purpose ng miracles – para mabalik siya sa right mind.

Ang kailangan lang ay willingness at yung tinatawag na “miracle-readiness” nung tao.

³If your miracle working inclinations are not functioning properly, it is always because fear has intruded on your right-mindedness and has turned it upside down. ⁴All forms of not-right-mindedness are the result of refusal to accept the Atonement for yourself. (ACIM, T-2.V.4:3-4)

Ano ang sign ng not-right-mindedness? Fear.

So pag nakaramdam tayo ng takot, kailangang itama muna natin yung error sa mind natin na nag-cause ng takot na yun.

Yung forms of not-right-mindedness ay mga forms of fear: anger, depression, anxiety, doubt, worry, blame, helplessness, at iba pang mga negative mental/emotional states.

The sole responsibility of the miracle worker is to accept the Atonement for himself. (ACIM, T-2.V.5:1)

Inner work, yan ang ginagawa ng miracle worker. Inner work para maitama ang sariling errors in perception.

⁵The message you then give to them is the truth that their minds are similarly constructive, and their miscreations cannot hurt them. (ACIM, T-2.V.5:5)

Miscreations cannot hurt kasi they are not true. Lies can only hurt pag binigyan mo sila ng power to hurt you.

Corrective learning always begins with the awakening of spirit, and the turning away from the belief in physical sight. ²This often entails fear, because you are afraid of what your spiritual sight will show you. (ACIM, T-2.V.7:1-2)

Para maitama ang errors in perception, kailangan i-shift yung focus from physical eyesight to spiritual insight.

Usually, fear ang initial reaction. Kasi yun ang ire-reveal sa atin ng spiritual insight, yung fear mismo.

Nire-reveal yung fear para ma-release na siya.

⁷Everything that results from spiritual awareness is merely channelized toward correction. ⁸Discomfort is aroused only to bring the need for correction into awareness. (ACIM, T-2.V.7:7-8)

Eto yung tinatawag na “transmutation.” Parang alchemy. Yung wrong thinking ay tinatransmute into correct thinking.

Uncomfortable yung process, pero that’s a sign na nagiging aware ka na of the errors in thinking na kailangang ikorek. It’s a sign of healing.

⁷It must be understood, however, that whenever you offer a miracle to another, you are shortening the suffering of both of you. (ACIM, T-2.V.10:7)

Although it’s all about inner work, pwede ring ma-extend yung miracle to another.

Meaning, pag pine-perceive mo yung iba, naka-focus ka rin sa nakikita ng Holy Spirit sa kanila – only the truth. Walang judgment. Hindi mo binibigyan ng powers yung human errors.

Pag ine-extend natin yung miracle, sino-shorten natin yung suffering ng bawat isa.
