Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) April 23, 2012
Endeavor Academy, the educational arm of A Course In Miracles International, today announced the completion of the Italian subtitling of Master Teacher's instructional video, “Changing My Mind About Everything: Lessons 1 – 7.”
The video, the first in the Illuminate Mind Training series, is a focused demonstration of the first seven lessons of the Workbook of A Course In Miracles, and can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/user/TheMasterTeacherTV
In the announcement, Endeavor Academy Administrator, Joan Cravener said, “As we prepare for the global celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace (September 14-23, 2012), we aim to make material such as this available in as many languages as possible.
“This video is absolutely essential for anyone who is genuinely determined to experience the whole new reality that is the eternal Love of God. The Master Teacher systematically demonstrates the real action of Forgiveness through the workbook lessons which state: 1) 'Nothing I see means anything.' 2) 'I have given everything I see all the meaning that it has for me.' 3) 'I do not understand anything I see.' 4 ) 'These thoughts do not mean anything.' 5) 'I am never upset for the reason I think'. 6) 'I am upset because I see something that is not there.' 7) 'I see only the past.'”
Explained Cravener, “The word 'forgiveness' is often bandied around and taken to mean letting someone off the hook for something he or she actually did. However, as you begin to experience the real change of mind effected by the practice of these first seven lessons of the workbook of A Course In Miracles, you simultaneously start to realize that everything you see has no independent existence; is actually just a projection of your mind and that you have given everything the meaning that it has for you.”
“In the video,” continued Cravener, “the Master Teacher says, 'at some point it will be impossible for you to avoid the idea of the word 'forgiveness', because this fundamental training that you are beginning to experience now will tell you that you have every right to grieve, and that the solution is that you are the cause of your own grievance.'”
Cravener added, “This recognition quite literally catapults you into a whole different dimension, and 'forgiveness' in the usual sense becomes utterly meaningless. Real Forgiveness entails a radical shift in consciousness and is then correctly seen as the release of your mind from definition in separation. Certainly, on the mundane level it is helpful for the individual to recognize the havoc that holding grievances is wreaking on his mind.
“Forgiveness is natural and immediate, the instant the need for it is recognized, and the experience of the freedom it offers, desired.”
Cravener goes on to describe the video as an “instantaneous catalyst in the transformation of the mind,” quoting the Master Teacher as saying, “'I know that you’re beginning to have an experience within yourself. I also know it may not be explainable to the world. I also know through my mind that there’s no need that you explain it to the world, because your acceptance of it within your own heart and mind is where the solution lies. Will you forgive the world? How simple it becomes to forgive the world if the world is an illusion within your own mind! How simple forgiveness becomes if everything will and always did remain perfect as it was created!'”
“Our ten-day celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace will join thousands of people around the world in a single dedication to the experience of real forgiveness and the Joy and Peace it engenders. It is a dedication to the inevitable revolutionary process of the return of man, through the action of forgiveness, to his true Identity that is the peace of his inherent Universal Mind. 'His sins have been forgiven him, and he no longer condemns himself. How can he then condemn anyone? And who is there whom his forgiveness can fail to heal?'
“Everyone is invited! Everyone is welcome. We want to hear from you. Join us in person, or join us via webcam. Visit our website http://www.forgivenessweek.org," concluded Cravener
