30 Days of Forgiveness - Day 22 - Ways of Practicing - A Course in Miracles

"You are spirit. Whole and Innocent. All is forgiven and released." --A Course in Miracles

A Course in Miracles (ACIM), as many of you probably already know, is a text for self-study to retrain your thoughts. It teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others.

The workbook consists of 365 lessons - one for each day of the year - and is meant to be done consecutively, each lesson building on the principles learned and experienced in the previous ones. Doing "the Course," as it is sometimes called, is a great way do forgiveness work.

I have also used the above line from the Course as a forgiveness tool by itself.

When someone does something that triggers me, I simply think of them and repeat this line: "You are spirit. Whole and Innocent. All is forgiven and released," until I feel better. If feelings come up again later, I repeat this process.

If you are interested in learning more about A Course in Miracles, visit the ACIM website or pick up one of the following books:

A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
The Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard
A Course in Miracles by the Foundation for Inner Peace
Anything by Ken Wapnick

This week I will be sharing more forgiveness quotes from ACIM so stay tuned....
