Day 46 Urtext ACIM pg 35 Miracles Obliterate Future Struggles i.e. Time

Please bring a prayer and the Holy Spirit with you. Text is bold type, my comments have *asterisk* 

41. The miracle is a learning device which lessens the need for time.  

*Because, remember, time is a device to allow the Son of God to awaken from His confusion. 

The sudden shifts from horizontal to vertical perception which the miracle entails, introduces an interval from which the doer and the receiver both emerge much farther along in time than they would otherwise have been. 

*Thank you, Jesus, for including this component in the Plan! 

A miracle has thus the unique property of abolishing time by rendering the space of time it occupies unnecessary.  

There is NO relation between the time a miracle TAKES and the time it COVERS.  

It substitutes FOR learning that might have taken thousands of years.  

*This is why we do not sense the change in time as we understand it. Because it shortens the future tremendously. I still suspect what we refer to past may be changed as well, because the only thing really happening is the now.  

It does this by the underlying recognition of perfect equality and holiness between doer and receiver on which the miracle rests. 

It is unstable, but perfectly consistent, i.e., it does not occur predictably across time, and it rarely occurs in comparable forms.  

*It is still under the formal subjection of Jesus. The Plan will not be altered unless he okay’s it. He began the Plan by being first born and the Law of Attraction started and is encompassed in Jesus.  

But within ITSELF it is perfectly consistent. 

Since it contains NOTHING BUT an acknowledgment of equality and worth, all parts ARE equal.  

This establishes the prerequisite for validity. 

We said before that the miracle abolishes time.  

It does this by a process of COLLAPSING it.  

It thus abolishes certain INTERVALS within it.  

*Which is why it is overseen by Jesus, creator of the original Plan. 

It does this, however, WITHIN the larger temporal sequence. 

*Which I would call the Original Plan, created by Jesus. 

The validity of the miracle, then, is PREDICTIVE, not logical, within the temporal schema.  

It establishes an out-of-pattern time interval, which is NOT under the usual laws of time.  Only in this sense is it timeless.  

By collapsing time, it literally saves time, much the way “daylight saving time” does. It rearranges the distribution of light. 

*It determines the amount of understanding “individuals” have about one another, i.e. the equality factor, in other words, the light is the understanding of equality between certain “bodies”. 

The miracle is the only device which man has at his immediate disposal for controlling time.   

*This is significant. 

Only the Revelation TRANSCENDS it, having nothing to do with time at all.  

*Revelation unites you with God and is not reciprocal. In God, there is no time. This is a temporary condition for humans. 

The miracle is much like the body, in that both are learning aids which aim at facilitating a state in which they are unnecessary.  

*You might want to read that one again.  

When the Soul is finally in the original state of direct communication, neither the body nor the miracle serves any purpose. 

*Wow! In the meantime, however, there is much we can do as we accept the miracle for ourselves and participate in the healing of the world.

Christ-controlled miracles are selective only While he is IN the body, however, man can choose between loveless and miraculous channels of creativity.  

He can create an empty shell (see previous reference), but he DOES NOT create nothing at all.  

*T1…IV.2:9 If a mind perceives without love, it perceives an empty shell and is unaware of the spirit within. 

He can wait, delay, paralyze himself, reduce his creativity almost to nothing, and even introduce a real developmental arrest or regression.  

*All of which can be seen in the world as individuals and as groups, even nations. 

But he CANNOT abolish his creativity.  

He CAN destroy his medium of communication, but NOT his potential. 

*The current medium of communication is the body.  

*The choice is made individually. The power of one is tremendous. I hope you have the desire to do your part.

*Exciting news! I will be bringing up my Blog Talk Radio Show soon and hope to have things rolling by the first of the year! The world needs us each to step up and do our part. May God bless our efforts. In Jesus’ name, on Christ’s behalf, Amen.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
