The Secret, Abraham-Hicks and ACIM
“The Secret” and A Course In Miracles are not really compatible spiritual paths. We need to be straight on that. “The Secret” is a mental device to enable you to create more illusions: wealth, cars, houses, etc. The Course is trying to enable you to see that the physical world is an illusion, and regardless of the nice things you can “manifest,” we don’t belong here. We belong in the universe of Spirit that God created, not this fake physical universe that WE created, not individually of course, but as the One Mind that we are each a part of. The Course calls that spiritual universe “Heaven,” and there is perfect oneness there with God and His Spiritual creations. There is only Love there, only Truth, only Fact, only One of which we are all a part. Were you to feel for just an instant this Love you would never care about manifesting anything physical ever again. The Love of God is all I am. The Love of God is all I need and Heaven is my home.
Abraham-Hicks is a group of spirits that are channeled by Esther Hicks. They are still individual spirits who believe they are separate from God and “evolving.” The Course would say that they are still in the illusion. To the Course, there is no spiritual evolution going on because we are already a part of God. We do not have to evolve into anything more. There IS nothing more than the everything we are! What is required is awakening, not evolution. Talk about evolution is still in the dream. To the Course, Abraham-Hicks is still supporting the ego view of the world. They have said that the separation from God actually happened, or happens as a fact. To the Course, that is the ego’s point of view. In truth, according to the Course no such separation is possible. Only in illusion could such a thing be thought of. All of the New Age systems of thought that believe in spiritual evolution fall into the same trap, according to the Course. They make the world real and believe we are here to evolve it! To the Course, dreams do not evolve, and the world is a dream we are having. Awakening is what is needed.
