A Course in Miracles states it can be summarized very simply…
“The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to an awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. This Course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God”
In the beginning there was Love, and Love was all there was and Love is all there Is. Simple. God is the Energy of Love that Creates. Only Love is Creative and We are Her Creation. But we have forgotten we were created by Love. We have forgotten that we were created at all! We think we created ourselves. Perhaps because the illusionary part, we did create, this body and this world. We feel alone and separate from each other in this world. And we have no idea what love is but are constantly looking for it outside of ourselves, forgetting that we are love. I’d like to share with you what A Course in Miracles says about God, His Creation, and Reality.
What is God?
As if this could be answered in words; but for the sake of following this story, the God that is shared in ACIM is very different from the God we learn about in the Bible.
In ACIM, God is the One Energy of Love that creates. God is changeless, eternal, all encompassing and has no opposite. God is a consciousness that think only what it is, Love.
What is Creation?
A Course in Miracles teaches that we are an idea in the Mind of God. We are the Thoughts of God. Love is complete, lacking nothing, changeless, infinite and everlasting. We are the One Creation of God. A Loving Thought. We are Gods One Son. Not our bodies, our spirit.
If God is Love and all He creates is love and loving, why are we not seeing this in the world? How can God be Love yet there is misery and suffering on every corner of the earth? We don’t know what Love is. But deep down we know it exists and we even occasionally have glimpses and reflections of it. If we are Love, why then is that not our experience here? Well because this is not reality, it is a mortal hallucination, a trick of the mind. God did not create this world. As I shared in the last post Awakening from the dream, we created this world, a tiny mad idea, that thought it could think separately from God, and fell into a deep sleep, a dream.
What is Reality?
A Course in Miracles teaches us that only Love is Real. God is Love and Love is all that exists. There is no opposite. Anything that is not love does not exist. The “reality” we made therefore does not exist. This life is an illusion. A hologram that feels dense and real. We believe in it because we believe what we “created”. What we see is not real. What is Real, is God and Her Creation, which we are a part of but have forgotten and cannot see with the eyes we made for seeing.
Our Reality is with God our Creator. We did not create ourselves.
Our “reality” is the world the ego made and we think we see with our physical eyes. This “reality” being a thought of separation is an illusion. We could never be separated from God. We may choose to think thoughts of separation, which is our ego thinking. Or we can join with Creator instead and think His Heavenly Thoughts. Thoughts of Love, Unity and Oneness. When we ask for His Vision instead of our sight, we begin to “see” Reality. We experience it with inner vision.We experience it inside. Our Eternal Protection, The Sacred Song, Divine Safety, Home. Inner Peace. Joy. Certainty.
- Love is what unites us all. It is our oneness. We are the One Thought of God: LOVE
- We are Spiritual Beings, not physical bodies. We are One Spirit.
- This Oneness which is us is also known as Christ, the One Son of God.
- In this Light, we were created and this is Who We Are. Christ Light.
- Forever and ever. This is our Reality.
As you begin your journey with A Course in Miracles, and start to practice the tools it gives, you should keep an open mind and be willing to question everything you’ve been told you are. We have been told we are sinners but in ACIM Jesus tells us we are Pure and Innocent Creations of Love.
Now close your eyes, and repeat to yourself, “I will to remember.”
