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.

How To Create Miracles…

Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. a course in miracles

express love

Expressing love, because we are love, is our prime duty and privilege. God, being love, and everything, means that love is what we must realize we already are. That’s really our only purpose on this planet. Any other pursuit is foolhardy and not worth anything. We deserve to live happy, healthy and joyous lives. That’s only possible if we allow the miraculous love of God to be expressed through and as us.

How To Return Home…

I rule my mind, which I alone must rule. a course in miracles

god’s invitation

We left home and now we’re lonely. There’s nothing in the world we’ve created that can satisfy us. Only re-union with God will fulfill us. God has invited us back already. But first we must decide that we want to head back home. Then I must decide to ‘rule my mind’, reign it in and finally ‘I’ must hand the reigns over to God. He can then gently guide us back home.

Why Fear Anything At All?

There is no time, no place, no state where God is absent. There is nothing to be feared. a course in miracles

here, everywhere, love

The ever-present substance of reality, this, that, here and there, is God. Never are we not with God. Because we’re lost in our egoic-thought-structure, we’re disconnected from this now-present Truth. ‘There is nothing be feared’.

The Only Thing We’ll Ever Need…

All you need you have. a course in miracles

all here, now

We don’t lack a thing. We think we’re missing something, a most valuable possession. And we go around looking for it endlessly. In other people, and in innumerable things. And we’re still not satisfied. We never will be, until we decide to look where we’ve never thought of looking. Right where we are, and within. All we ever need, we already are. We don’t experience it because we never pay attention to self. We don’t lack a thing.

How To Truly Forgive…

Forgiveness recognizes what you thought your brother did to you has not occurred. a course in miracles

real forgiveness

Someone hurts us in some manner. We then might forgive them for what they’ve done to us. That’s not real forgiveness according to A Course in Miracles. That’s because by forgiving someone we’re saying that there’s something to forgive. A Course in Miracles informs us that we’re dreaming our current ‘reality’. And if that’s the case then the ‘sin’ committed by our brother-in-dream never actually happened. Recognizing that it never occurred is true forgiveness.
