ACIM Self-Study: The Illusion of Needs


You who want peace can find it only by complete forgiveness. ²No learning is acquired by anyone unless he wants to learn it and believes in some way that he needs it. (ACIM, T-1.VI.1:1-2)

Kung gusto natin ng inner peace, ang tanging paraan lang ay complete forgiveness.

Kailangan willing tayong matutunan kung paano magpatawad.

³While lack does not exist in the creation of God, it is very apparent in what you have made. ⁵Lack implies that you would be better off in a state somehow different from the one you are in. ⁶Until the “separation,” which is the meaning of the “fall,” nothing was lacking. ⁷There were no needs at all. (ACIM, T-1.VI.1:3-7)

Lack, o kakulangan, ay nangangahulugan na hindi tayo kuntento sa kasalukuyan. Parang gusto natin iba dapat yung na-eexperience natin.

“what you have made” – tayo ang gumagawa ng na-eexperience natin.

Anong ginawa natin? “Separation,” yung idea na hiwalay tayo from God. Yun ang ibig sabihin ng “fall from God” – nandito tayo sa lupa at nasa langit si God, magkahiwalay.

Mula sa idea ng separation nanggaling yung “illusion of needs.”

⁸Needs arise only when you deprive yourself. ⁹You act according to the particular order of needs you establish. ¹⁰This, in turn, depends on your perception of what you are. (ACIM, T-1.VI.1:8-10)

Pero yung needs, tayo ang gumagawa nun sa sarili natin, hindi si God.

Kaya naman yung mga ginagawa rin natin ay para mapunan yung mga pangangailangan natin.

Lahat ng ginagawa natin ay nakadepende sa pagtingin natin sa sarili – kung connected ba tayo kay God or nakahiwalay.

A sense of separation from God is the only lack you really need correct. (ACIM, T-1.VI.2:1)

Yown! Eto lang yung katangi-tanging error na kailangan nating ikorek: yung sense of separation from God – yung idea na nakahiwalay tayo sa Diyos.

Yan yung “original sin.” Origin, ibig sabihin ay pinagmulan. Sin, ibig sabihin ay error.

³The idea of order of needs arose because, having made this fundamental error, you had already fragmented yourself into levels with different needs. (ACIM, T-1.VI.2:3)

Dyan sa original error nagmula ang fear at iba pang mga illusions, kasama na dun yung illusions of needs.

Akala mo marami kang needs. Kaya kahit mapunan yung mga needs na yun, parang may kulang pa rin.

The idea of orders of need, which follows from the original error that one can be separated from God, requires correction at its own level before the error of perceiving levels at all can be corrected. (ACIM, T-1.VI.3:1)

Dahil ang talagang need ay makorek yung fundamental error, kailangang mapatawad yung “original sin” – yung idea na nakahiwalay ka from God.

The real purpose of this world is to use it to correct your unbelief. ²You can never control the effects of fear yourself, because you made fear, and you believe in what you made. (ACIM, T-1.VI.4:1-2)

Yun ang purpose nitong buhay sa mundo. Eto yung school para matutunan natin kung paano patawarin yung “original sin.”

Idea natin yung “original sin,” kaya naniniwala tayo na totoo yun.

⁴Belief produces the acceptance of existence. ⁵That is why you can believe what no one else thinks is true. ⁶It is true for you because it was made by you. (ACIM, T-1.VI.4:4-6)

At eto pa ha, naniniwala rin tayo na tama tayo at tayo lang ang tama. Ayun, kanya-kanyang religion na!

All aspects of fear are untrue because they do not exist at the creative level, and therefore do not exist at all. (ACIM, T-1.VI.5:1)

Fear ay galing sa original error (sin), which is idea lamang… na hindi talaga nag-eexist in reality, unless paniwalaan natin (beliefs).

²To whatever extent you are willing to submit your beliefs to this test, to that extent are your perceptions corrected. (ACIM, T-1.VI.5:2)

Kung hanggang saan tayo willing i-question at i-test yung mga beliefs natin, hanggang dun rin natin siya maitatama.

In other words, kaya ba nating buksan ang pag-iisip natin at lawakan ang ating kaisipan?

³In sorting out the false from the true, the miracle proceeds along these lines:
⁴Perfect love casts out fear.
⁵If fear exists, then there is not perfect love.
⁷Only perfect love exists.
⁸If there is fear, it produces a state that does not exist. (ACIM, T-1.VI.5:3-8)

Pag-konekin natin…

Fear ay galing sa original error (sin). Sin is lack of love (read previous topic). So, fear ay galing sa lack of love (not perfect love).

Pero… only perfect love lang daw ang totoo. So, ibig sabihin, ang fear ay illusion lang.

⁹Believe this and you will be free. (ACIM, T-1.VI.5:9)

Fear ay illusion lamang. Sin ay idea lamang.

Yan ang truth that will set you free.
