Cause and effect is one of the key themes in A Course in Miracles, for it underlies not only the ego’s thought system of separation, but the Holy Spirit’s correction of forgiveness. Thus we learn that the cause of distress is not external—regardless of the form of upset—but the mind’s decision for guilt. By returning the cause from the body to the mind, we give ourselves another opportunity to choose again. Placing cause and effect in their true relationship, we are able to undo the ego’s cause, thus remembering our true Cause—the God Who created us like Himself.
