[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.

[acim] Why We Suffer Through Life’s Trials…

Trials are but lessons that you failed to learn presented once again… a course in miracles


All of Life’s events are lessons. Suffering is inevitable if we don’t learn the intended lessons. All lessons point to increasing awareness. Awareness of self, which means our thoughts, emotions, assumptions, tendencies and desires. We ought to welcome trials because they eventually lead to self-discovery and therefore life-fulfillment.

[acim] How To Experience a Miracle…

The miracle comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant and is still. a course in miracles

be still

A miracle is the experience of God’s loving presence. It’s the experience of primal reality. Such is the underpinning of all seeming objects and events that we can ever experience. It’s the very substance of everything and therefore everyone. It’s realized when our chattering mind is completely still even if it’s for just a moment. In that moment of realization all is quiet, still, peaceful, wholesome and complete. Nothing’s left to be said or to be done.

[acim] What is a Miracle?

…everything that comes from love is a miracle. a course in miracles


Many wonder about the definition of a ‘Miracle’ from the perspective of A Course in Miracles. The Text and the Lessons in the book have various definitions. In fact the entire book repeats essentially the same message in a myriad different ways. The message is that what we understand to be us and the world around us is not what it appears to be. In truth we’re ever in the presence of our creator, but we’ve decided to not experience this reality for some reason. That presence is love itself. Which is why I ‘love’ the above definition of a miracle. A miracle is knowing that all that we are and which we experience is an expression of love. It’s a ‘shift in perception’ that helps us embrace reality.
