I have invented the world I see from A Course In Miracles

Here is a nice section from the text of a course in miracles, which ties in with Lesson 32. It is pretty self explanitory, so I will just add it without comment.

“Never forget the world the sightless “see” must be imagined. And what it really looks like is unknown to them. They must infer what could be seen, from evidence forever indirect, and reconstruct their inferences as they stumble and fall because of what they did not recognize, or walk unharmed through open doorways that they thought were closed. And so it is with you. You do not see. Your cues for inference are wrong, and so you stumble and fall down upon the stones you did not recognize. But fail to be aware you CAN go through the doors you thought were closed, but which stand open before unseeing eyes, waiting to welcome you.

How foolish it is to attempt to judge what could be seen instead. It is not necessary to imagine what the world must look like. It must be seen, before you recognize it for what it is. You can be shown which doors are open, and you can see where safety lies. And which way leads to darkness; which to light. Judgment will ALWAYS give you false directions. But vision SHOWS you where to go. Why should you guess? There is no need to learn through pain. And gentle lessons are acquired joyously, and are remembered gladly. What gives you happiness you WANT to learn and not forget.

It is not this you would deny. YOUR question is whether the means by which this course is earned will bring the joy it promises. If you believed it would, the learning of it would be no problem. You are not happy learners yet, because you still remain uncertain that vision gives you MORE than judgment does, and you have learned that both you cannot have. The blind become accustomed to their world by their adjustments TO it. They think they know their way about in it. They learned it not through joyous lessons, but through the stern necessity of limits they believed they could not overcome. And, still believing this, they hold those lessons dear, and cling to them BECAUSE they cannot see.

They do not understand the lessons KEEP them blind. This they do not believe. And so they keep the world they learned to “see” in their imagination, believing that their choice is that, or nothing. They hate the world they learned through pain. And everything they think is in it serves to remind them that they are incomplete and bitterly deprived. Thus they DEFINE their life and where they live it, adjusting to it as they think they must, afraid to lose the little that they have. And so it is with all who see the body as all they have, and all their brothers have. They try to reach each other, and they fail. And fail again. And they adjust to loneliness, believing that to keep the body is to save the little that they have.”ACIM

The course in miracles really is impeccable! It expresses the human condition so perfectly that I really don’t know why this can’t be heard.

It is a confrontation but that could only be a confrontation with nothing and it IS a required course, so now we are just looking at, time. And that doesn’t exist. So I guess that just leaves us with your perfection, as God Created you. But if you really experienced that in your own Mind you would know that you aren’t a body and time and space would have no hold on you at all.

There is another place, as Jesus mentioned, that has been prepared for you but you won’t know it until you become willing to let go of the place you think you are in.

  1. I visualize miracles and have faith that they will happen. I believe in angels and sense quite clearly how they have already guided me at different periods in my life. At the same time, my recent experience has shown that when I hope for miracles that involve other people, their lack of belief in themselves seems to undermine the power of my belief in the miracle. When asked by sceptics what they can do to make a business work to earn money and solve material issues, I suggest taking steps to build self-confidence could positively influence their faith. Yet, they do not seem to see their lack of belief in themselves pushes the possible success or others miracles away. I believe the law of attraction, that we invite opportunities and experiences into our lives that are meant to help us grow. I suppose I’m being prepared for something unexpected.
