Herein Lies The Peace of God…

Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God. a course in miracles

‘the peace of god’

The peace of God lies within us. It is us. Our essence, our true ‘I’-ness, can never be threatened, it always is, we always are, I AM. Everything else changes constantly and therefore is not ultimately real. To claim this peace that we are, we must re-identify with that which is real, that which is us, I AM.

[acim] Do We Really Want The Truth?

It is there, wherever you are, being within you. a course in miracles

‘being within you’

Imagine wearing a futuristic pair of VR glasses that provide an experience of virtual-reality that’s as real as it can get. With those glasses on, our body could be sitting somewhere and not moving at all. The experience due to the glasses could have us hurtling through a tunnel, in a fast moving car that’s avoiding going out of control on an icy road. After just a little while it would be easy to forget that we have these fancy glasses on. And it would be easy to completely slip into the character that we are, within that VR world. While still seated on a piece of furniture our entire world within the VR could be topsy-turvy, violent and very colorful.

Someone within the VR might ask us, ‘Where is Reality?’ How might we respond to that question? What do we have to do to re-discover reality? Do we really want to exit the VR? Some questions to ponder as we ruminate on our life on this planet and at this point in Time and Space…

[acim] How To Rediscover Truth…

Truth is restored to you through your desire, as it was lost to you through your desire for something else. a course in miracles

a better way

What we truly want is what we experience in our lives. When we realize that this world and its experiences will never truly satisfy us, we are then ready to rediscover the truth that we are. We will begin to experience peace, love, joy and happiness when we desire truth more than anything else.

[acim] Truth (a.k.a. Reality), Where Art Thou?

Truth lies only in the present, and you will find it if you seek it there. a course in miracles

here, now

Oft repeated but seldom fully understood, Reality (truth) can only be found in the experience of the present. And while we experience the present we disappear, there are no thoughts either. There’s just the experience of what’s going on. To experience the present in this fashion is the only way to experience it.

[acim] Where and What is Truth?

Do not try to look beyond yourself for truth, for truth can only be within you. a course in miracles

it’s you

The truth is here and now. It’s within us and is us. We can’t put our finger on it because we can’t point to our own essence. We’re a dynamic and an ongoing creation of God. Our beingness and the active experience of living is a big clue to who we are, it’s also the experience of truth. The truth starts to become more evident to us when we seek it, within us.

[acim] Who or What Are We?

Everything that seems to happen to me I ask for and receive as I have asked. a course in miracles

it’s me

Mostly unknowingly and because we’re creator children of the One God, we bring all that we experience into our lives. Everything that happens to us is because we want it to happen to us. We’re powerful beyond understanding. We, for some reason, want to play small and be like helpless bodies that eventually die. Who or what are we? Isn’t it time we found out?

[acim] Why I Am Responsible…

I am responsible for what I see. a course in miracles

a matrix

Life doesn’t happen to us randomly. God isn’t doing Life to us. We are Life and we’re doing all of it to ourselves. Once we start buying this truth, Life starts to make more sense. We live in an illusory Matrix, that’s entirely our own doing. But there’s no way ‘out’ unless we know that we’re under the spell such a Maya-like Matrix.
