In this video recording of a class given as part of the School For A Course In Miracles (SFACIM) curriculum, Bruce Rawles reads and discusses ACIM Workbook Lesson 112 which is a review of Lessons 93 and 94. The psychological principle of cognitive dissonance is well represented in Lesson 93, and is a technique used widely in ACIM to point out the 100% insanity of ego and 100% sanity of Holy Spirit by placing them side-by-side in the altar of our mind so that we’ll be deeply motivated to choose against insanity when clearly seen. We also review the related section “The Irreconcilable Beliefs” which opens Chapter 23. Here’s an excerpt:
“The memory of God comes to the quiet mind. It cannot come where there is conflict, for a mind at war against itself remembers not eternal gentleness. The means of war are not the means of peace, and what the warlike would remember is not love. War is impossible unless belief in victory is cherished. Conflict within you must imply that you believe the ego has the power to be victorious. Why else would you identify with it? Surely you realize the ego is at war with God. Certain it is it has no enemy. Yet just as certain is its fixed belief it has an enemy that it must overcome and will succeed.” – T-23.I.1
