A Course In Miracles Adventures

Categories:

While just about everyone has been brought up to believe that prayer involves pleading to God to help, save, fix problems and bring us things in this world, that’s not true prayer nor its purpose. Prayer in A TRAINING COURSE in Miracles (ACIM) is fairly different and very beautiful. More than a song, it is joyous exchange of Love and thanks between God and His Creations that employs the forgiveness process to improve the mind before Prayer Song is all that remains. It is the ticket home so understanding true prayer, and forgiveness, is worth the time in retraining the mind.

Prayer is exchanging (sharing) a Song of Love and Creation or judgments of the ego based on what you require (agree with) in your brain. There is absolutely no other way. In the Course, the mind (content) is split between God and the ego; and you also are choosing all the time with a side as cause for effect.Forms (all things of the world) are miscreations reflecting the ego’s judgmental thought system. We’ve managed to get up (miscreated this world) and will cease anytime by correcting your brain (forgiveness). True prayer requires this correction of the mind as God has nothing to do with forms.

What Prayer isn’t:

Because you are always deciding, what you ask for when you pray is what counts. When you plead in prayer to possess God fix a form problem with another form problem, you are asking the ego mind for help (not God). Those forms and needs are deemed more important than God’s Love that will remain hidden to the amount you select the illusion.

Other labels are wants, desires, status, problems, sickness, human love (special relationships), gifts and goals in this world, etc. They are everything you choose as substitutes for God’s Love and the ego will distort the purpose of prayer through the use of them to help expand the illusion. Therefore, prayer cannot be about “forms” or “needs” at all.

The Purpose of Prayer:

The Song of Prayer is defined by the Course as a Song of Creation, Love and gratitude being sung from the Father to the Son and returned from the Son to the daddy. God gave this gift of Love to His Son at Creation so that it’s a single voice shared by both the Creator and Created. Continuously sharing Love and Creation back and forth extends them forever in eternity. That’s prayer’s purpose.

In this form world of illusion, this prayer is still something special from God offered through the Holy Spirit, the memory of God in your brain. It’s how you reach God in the illusion. Anyone who has ever remembered the tiniest instant of the all-inclusive joy must begin questioning what he is choosing (praying for) and how exactly to change his mind so he can have that all the time.

True Prayer and Forgiveness:

True prayer is: (1) asking to get what is already there, The Song; and, (2) along the way, using forgiveness (correction of the mind) to stop the ego forms or what’s not really there. Joining with Love in true prayer is requesting nothing (i.e., no illusion, forms or needs) so you find yourself receiving everything (Love). One problem. One solution.

Forgiveness (correction of your brain) is a part of true prayer and makes the process go quicker. Prayer is timeless and goes on forever, and forgiveness is the illusory ladder with time that returns the mind to the endless exchange. Forgiveness disappears once the mind is totally corrected and remembers only The Song.

The big secret of true prayer and forgiveness is to focus on disregarding and giving up the things you imagine you need and need in the illusion, even the specifics, as this asks for your brain to be returned to Truth (Love). You are not furthering the illusion. You’re agreeing with God that (a) you are a mind; (b) this form world isn’t real; (c) you made a blunder; and, (d) it is possible to choose again.

Using correction of your brain (forgiveness) places those forms and needs on God’s altar, or in his hands, as idols which are nothing more than whatever you have chosen to be more important than God’s Love. No longer wanting anything before His Love, the only effect God could return is your remembrance of Him. The more you give up, the more meaningless the planet becomes and the faster you sing His Song.

Prayer in the Illusion:

Since the mind still resides with God, the Course says you don’t need to decide alone and really should ask the Holy Spirit for help deciding and await the solution. Otherwise, you’ve already decided with the ego. In the event that you must decide on the spot, you’ll get the appropriate “need” answer right then.A remedy is an echo of God’s Voice from the Song of Prayer. You’re not asking for the echo itself. You’re choosing the gift of Love from The Song giving up all form needs. “Need” answers in the illusion are contained within that echo even during the correction of the mind process. They’re met at the level of the forgiveness ladder it is possible to understand and accept.
