For only “now” is here. a course in miracles
Time is borne of the movement of our thoughts. We think time up. Without a reference, via thought, to a ‘past’, a ‘future’ or even a ‘present’, it only ever is now. It’s now, and here.
Anything that changes, doesn’t last, therefore isn’t. All things that change, such as pictures and movies on a screen, are made possible because of the screen. In our world the equivalent of such a screen is the quietness, the stillness, due to which all becomes possible. If we want to be in touch with this reality, if we want to know God and experience love, then must we be still, be quiet…
God is incomplete without the full participation and rejoining of her ‘separated’ creations. We’re ‘separated’ because we experience aloneness and are not generally happy campers. We’ll always be wanting fulfillment and completion until we wholly desire God and ‘return’ back home.
Given our limited, very flawed intellect and our penchant for making mistakes, it’s best if we allow divine intelligence to help us make our decisions. How do we do that? By simply asking the divine for help and inviting it to participate in our daily and even moment-by-moment decision making.
We experience separation from that which is. To erase this apparent separation we must allow what is. Any resistance to what is, causes the separation, therefore anxiety, and the feeling of loneliness, to intensify. As we allow life to just happen, over time, the separation slowly, becomes meaningless.
Can we trust who we are and whence we came? Can we even begin to believe that we’re made of god-stuff? If we can trust our divine source and upholder then truly there is not a single problem that means anything.
The entirety of our thoughts, beliefs and assumptions is our world. Life and its problems are easily summed up thusly. Our experience of Life is via our thoughts, the mind that we’ve constructed which is the same as ‘I’, the ego. And it’s the Ego, who we think is us, that appears to hurt us. Nothing but our own thoughts is the culprit.
