ACIM Self-Study: Distortions of Miracle Impulses


Your distorted perceptions produce a dense cover over miracle impulses, making it hard for them to reach your own awareness. ⁶Denial of Self results in illusions, while correction of the error brings release from it. ⁷Do not deceive yourself into believing that you can relate in peace to God or to your brothers with anything external. (ACIM, T-1.VII.1:1,6-7)

“Denial of Self,” o ibig sabihin ay denying na you are of spirit, results in illusions. Ano yung illusion na yun? That you are the physical body.

Yung wrong perception na yun ang cause ng distortion of miracle impulses kasi nadadala tayo ng physical senses ng katawan natin.

Which is normal lang naman. Okay lang yun, walang mali dun.

Nagiging mali lang kung hahanapin natin yung peace, love, at true happiness sa anything external – kasi hindi yun dun manggagaling.

Manggagaling yun sa pagkorek ng ating wrong perception, which is internal.

Ano yung tamang perception? That you are a soul having a physical body.

Child of God, you were created to create the good, the beautiful and the holy. ²Do not forget this. ³The Love of God, for a little while, must still be expressed through one body to another, because vision is still so dim. ⁴You can use your body best to help you enlarge your perception so you can achieve real vision, of which the physical eye is incapable. ⁵Learning to do this is the body’s only true usefulness. (ACIM, T-1.VII.2:1-5)

Sabi nga natin sa previous topic, yung physical body raw ay learning aids para matutunan natin yung miracles.

Ano ulit yung miracles? Expressions of Love of God.

Pero dahil hindi natin nakikita physically ang Diyos at mas madaling makita yung kaseksihan (o kasiksikan) ng katawan natin, magiging useful yung physical body for expressing the Love of God.

Pero para ma-express natin yun, babalik ulit tayo dun sa perception natin kung tama ba o mali.

Kung ano ang perception, ganun rin ang expression.

Fantasy is a distorted form of vision. ²Fantasies of any kind are distortions, because they always involve twisting perception into unreality. (ACIM, T-1.VII.3:1-2)

Fantasy ay kung yung illusion ay ginagawa nating totoo.

Pag twisted ang perception, nagiging distorted ang vision.

³Actions that stem from distortions are literally the reactions of those who know not what they do. (ACIM, T-1.VII.3:3)

They know not what they do because they know not what they see.

Nakabase yung actions natin sa ating perception.

⁴Fantasy is an attempt to control reality according to false needs. (ACIM, T-1.VII.3:4)

Bakit? Kasi “control is an illusion. Kaya pantasya yun kung sa tingin natin e makokontrol natin ang reality.

Pero Kyah Fred, si Hitler na-control niya yung mundo noon… Oo, pero ang tanong, yung mundo ba ay reality o illusion?.. Dyan papasok yung perception.

Sa mga susunod pa nating topics, itatama natin yung perception natin para malaman natin yung kasagutan.
