Counseling with A Course in Miracles…


Counseling with A Course in Miracles…
There are psychotherapists in my city that use ACIM as their modality of work for counseling couples. The couple comes with some complaints about each others actions or reactions. Their first wish, often, is for the Counselor to take sides and pronounce one side as right. That is the ego’s wish to perpetuate conflict. The Counselor has to get them to see that each one is responsible for how they see the other one. Someone reacts. OK. That doesn’t mean that you have to choose to see him as attacking you, much less give you a right to attack back. In the moment of his reaction, you have the ability to let it pass as a simple mistake, and see him as perfect as God made him. So mistakes can easily be let go and conflict need not develop. If Nazi concentration camp survivors can learn to forgive the Nazi’s using the principles of The Course, you can learn to forgive in your daily life.
