When people use the lessons learned and the precepts of a Course In Miracles, they find that they come to a new understanding of forgiveness. They are able to study and learn why you hurt yourself yet others when you do not eliminate.
This is why it is so important anytime another person affects you, you must eliminate. Often we hear someone say, “I can never eliminate him/her for this. inch Also, but they must! The one who needs to eliminate is affected the maximum amount of as the one who needs to be pardoned, if not more deeply! You can eliminate the wrongdoer whether he asks for forgiveness or not. By doing so, the pain that the person caused you will be removed from you and you can be freed from any frustration and negative emotions. This will be the first of the miracles that is granted and obtained by the power of forgiveness learned from a Course In Miracles. soundcloud acim
One ACIM student describes their own need to eliminate and what they learned. This is their story:
Many years ago, in what seems like another lifetime, I was hurt deeply by the man who had stated before God and witnesses to love me until death would some day part us. He did not keep that pledge. In the beginning, we were happy and we settled into a comfortable marriage. I thought everything was fine. I found out differently when i discovered the first of what would turn out to be several extra-marital affairs. At first, I was angry and repudiated to eliminate and nothing went right for me during that time. It was when i used the lessons to eliminate and change my thinking that my own life changed and I realized that these feelings were of my own making and my damaged life was something that I could change.
