Review Community Guidelines

The MyACIM community was made for YOU. The following community guidelines ensure you experience the highest good possible while accessing the site. Please take a moment to review each one carefully!

Community Guidelines

1. Regardless of where I am on my path, I join as an equal.

2. I come to heal my mind, not to give advice or correct others.

3. If I judge another’s share, I see it as an opportunity to practice forgiveness.

4. I share my own truths and insights, not the teachings of another.

5. I use forums for inspiration and to share my own awakening experience.

6. When sharing, I share with “I” statements rather than “We” or “You” statements.

7. Love is listening. I listen with an open heart and an open mind.

Purpose of Guidelines

MyACIM is a site for everyone – not one specific teacher or group. We join for the purpose of Realizing our Higher Mind, our Christed Self.

To achieve this, we must move past intellectual conversation into the heart. Past all thoughts of separateness, there is our own awakening, and an experience of oneness with God.

Shares on MyACIM are for communicating how one is opening to their Higher Mind and/or what the Course readings mean to them. Our Community Guidelines are an agreement between our members to ensure the site remains useful for this purpose.

Quoting other teachers

To stay on purpose, shares on MyACIM are for communicating how one is opening to their Higher Mind and/or what the Course readings mean to them.

A good teacher points to the Truth, inspires the student to go within, heal their own mind, and discover the Truth for him or herself. Sharing your own insights is key.

Sharing with “I” statements

Sharing insights and perspectives with “I” statements invites the reader to join you in your perspective as opposed to feeling it projected onto them. This helps the writer take ownership over their truth and protects the reader from feeling spoken for.

DO: “I”, “my”, etc.

DON’T: “You”, “we”, “us”, etc.
