Who Is Our Source?

Let me remember You created me. a course in miracles

source

For a reason lost to antiquity we’ve forgotten from whence we came. Apparently it was our decision to do so, which is why God cannot force herself into our consciousness. We must decide to go back by demolishing the barriers we’ve created between us and God. Prayer and genuine effort at reconciliation goes a long way.

The Only Worthwhile Goal…

God is our only goal, our only Love. a course in miracles

our only love

We’re seeking ultimate satisfaction. We cry for love and crave for attention. We want to be heard and to matter. No earthly goal or desire has yet been able to deliver, and never will. That’s because we seek ultimate satisfaction and fulfillment. Only realization of ultimate reality will do the trick. If we’re not clear about what we seek, we’ll never be satisfied, happy or fulfilled.

Why All Things Are Helpful…

It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters, and circumstances are helpful. a course in miracles

it’s all helpful

What does ‘are helpful’ mean here? From the perspective of A Course in Miracles, everything in our life experience is pushing us to awaken from the dream of this existence. And what’s pushing us is our own soul-level choosing. Nothing that’s happening to us is not of our own choosing. All that appears to be happening to us is helpful and is gently (mostly) guiding us to awaken.

Time To Wake Up!

I’ve come back for you, to remind you of something, you once knew. That this world is not real. Inception Movie

illusory

Could it be that we’re living in a mass, self-perpetuated hallucination or a virtual reality world? Can it be that, like what some religions suggest, we’re living in an illusory reality, a dream? And if so, how can we wake up from it? How can we be awake to our true nature?

Why Love Must Not Be Special!

Love is not special. a course in miracles

not special

This is contrary to what one might expect. Love can be special, is special, we say. What this quote is saying is that when we love someone more than anyone else we’re making exceptions that are ego-based. The source of love is God and God will not and cannot love one part of his creation more than another. Love cannot make exceptions and therefore ‘is not special’. Our love, if we are to truly become the love that we already are, must be like God’s for her creation.
