ACIM Self-Study: Creation and Communication


⁵The ego is the part of the mind that believes your existence is defined by separation. (ACIM, T-4.VII.1:5)

Review lang ulit: yung ego ay yung unconscious part ng psyche (soul) natin.

Extended part siya pero “part” pa rin siya of the whole, so hindi talaga siya naka-separate. Pero para sa ego, the illusion is real.

Everything the ego perceives is a separate whole, without the relationships that imply being. (ACIM, T-4.VII.2:1)

Kaya naman ang perception rin ng ego ay base sa separation. Tingin niya sa lahat ay separate from everything else.

“Individuality” yung akmang word para sa ego: in-divide-duality

Divide = separation. Duality = opposites.

²The ego is thus against communication, except insofar as it is utilized to establish separateness rather than to abolish it. ³The communication system of the ego is based on its own thought system, as is everything else it dictates. (ACIM, T-4.VII.2:2-3)

Kaya rin naman against communication ang ego. Naka-base kasi sa separation at opposites yung thought system ng ego.

So yun lang rin ang acceptable na thoughts sa ego, kabaliktaran ng mga tinuturo ng A Course in Miracles.

⁴Its communication is controlled by its need to protect itself, and it will disrupt communication when it experiences threat. (ACIM, T-4.VII.2:4)

Self-preservation lang ang laging agenda ng ego. At pinepreserve yun ng ego through its thought system (beliefs).

Dinedeny ng ego ang any threat dun sa thought system na yun.

In contrast, spirit reacts in the same way to everything it knows is true, and does not respond at all to anything else. (ACIM, T-4.VII.3:1)

‘Di tulad ng ego, yung spirit ay walang thought system. No need na for beliefs kasi alam ng spirit yung truth.

Yung truth lang ang nare-recognize ng spirit, wala nang iba. Kasi alam ng spirit na walang naman talagang “others.”

⁴It is in complete and direct communication with every aspect of creation, because it is in complete and direct communication with its Creator. ⁵This communication is the Will of God. (ACIM, T-4.VII.3:4-5)

Yung spirit rin ay in direct communication with God, 24/7. Eto yung tinatawag na “Will of God.”

Meaning to say, yung Will of God ay state of consciousness.

⁷God created every mind by communicating His Mind to it, thus establishing it forever as a channel for the reception of His Mind and Will. (ACIM, T-4.VII.3:7)

Yang statement na yan ang patunay sa ating forever connection kay God. Hindi lang tayo laging aware dahil sa ego, kasi nga unconscious part yun ng mind.

⁵To whatever extent you permit this state to be curtailed you are limiting your sense of your own reality, which becomes total only by recognizing all reality in the glorious context of its real relationship to you. ⁶This is your reality. (ACIM, T-4.VII.4:5-6)

To simplify: kung ano yung state of consciousness natin, ganun rin yung “reality” na maeexperience natin.

The Bible repeatedly states that you should praise God. ²This hardly means that you should tell Him how wonderful He is. ³He has no ego with which to accept such praise, and no perception with which to judge it. (ACIM, T-4.VII.6:1-3)

Okay lang sambahin si God tulad ng sabi sa Bible. Pero actually, tayo ang nakikinabang sa pagsamba natin, hindi si God.

Kasi yung worship is a form of communication with God.

Kailangan natin yung worship, pero si God hindi kasi wala siyang ego. Ang nare-recognize ni God ay hindi yung praise, kundi yung communication natin from the worship.

⁷The constant going out of His Love is blocked when His channels are closed, and He is lonely when the minds He created do not communicate fully with Him. (ACIM, T-4.VII.6:7)

Constant, meaning walang tigil yung pagmamahal sa atin ng Diyos. Pero napipigilan yun dahil sa ego, dahil sa mga false beliefs natin.

Again, para ma-open yung channels of communication with God, ang laging suggestion ko is to meditate.

God is praised whenever any mind learns to be wholly helpful. (ACIM, T-4.VII.8:1)

Mas tunay na napapapurihan ang Diyos sa pagbabago ng ating isip at sa pamumuhay natin base sa bagong pag-iisip na yun.

Parang si Jesus, ang papuring binigay niya sa Diyos ay sa paraan kung paano siya nabuhay.

Ganun rin yung imbitasyon ni Jesus sa ating lahat.
