A Course In Miracles Will be Believed in it’s Entirety, or Not at All.

I know you don’t like that (Will be Believed in it’s Entirety, or Not at All), you love the idea that you can take just some of the concepts of the Course and leave the rest, no, no, no, it’s not possible. That of course IS your salvation. I don’t know where you are hearing this and I don’t really care. It’s simply time, time to SAY WHAT IT SAYS.
Here’s Jesus,

“You still have too much faith in the body as a source of strength. What plans do you make that do NOT involve its comfort or protection or enjoyment in some way? This makes it an end and not a means in your interpretation, and this ALWAYS means YOU STILL FIND SIN ATTRACTIVE. No-one accepts Atonement for himself who still accepts sin as his goal. You have thus not met your one responsibility. Atonement is not welcomed by those who PREFER pain and destruction.

You have made much progress, and are really trying to make still more, but there is one thing you have never done; not for one instant have you utterly forgotten the body. It has faded at times from your sight, but it has not yet COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. You are not asked to let this happen for more than an instant, but it is in this instant that the miracle of Atonement happens. Afterwards, you will see the body again, but never quite the same. And every instant that you spend WITHOUT awareness of it gives you a different view of it, when you return.”

There is absolutely no loss or sacrifice in that at all. Jesus even says you will still see the body you will still be yourself, but your not a body. At best you are a memory of yourself waking up from a dream.

At no SINGLE instant does the body exist at all . It is always remembered or anticipated, but NEVER experienced just now. Only its past and future make it seem real. Time controls it entirely. For sin is never present. In any SINGLE instant, the attraction of guilt would be experienced as pain and nothing else, and would be avoided. IT HAS NO ATTRACTION NOW. Its whole attraction is imaginary, and therefore MUST be thought of from the past, or in the future.

It is impossible to accept the holy instant WITHOUT RESERVATION unless, JUST FOR AN INSTANT, you are willing to see no past or future. You cannot PREPARE for it without placing it in the FUTURE. Release is given you the INSTANT you desire it. Many have spent a lifetime in preparation, and have, indeed, achieved their instants of success. This course does not attempt to teach more than they have learned in time. But it does aim at SAVING time.”

As a teacher, all can I offer you, through simply accepting the atonement for myself, is the shortening of the time in which you made the decision to be as God created you. You HAVE accepted, so why would you want to suffer by thinking you can decide somewhere in the future?

“You are attempting to follow a very long road to the goal you have accepted. It is extremely difficult to reach Atonement by fighting against sin. Enormous effort is expended in the attempt to make holy what is hated and despised. Nor is a lifetime of contemplation, and long periods of meditation aimed at DETACHMENT from the body necessary. All such attempts will ultimately succeed, because of their purpose. But the means are tedious and very time consuming, for all of them LOOK TO THE FUTURE for release from a state of present unworthiness and inadequacy.”

Are you through sitting on your ass? Are you tired of the constant battle you wage with your “ego”. Enough is enough.

“Your way will be different. NOT in purpose, but in means. A HOLY RELATIONSHIP IS A MEANS OF SAVING TIME. One instant spent TOGETHER restores the universe to BOTH of you. You ARE prepared. Now you need but remember YOU NEED DO NOTHING. It would be FAR more profitable now merely to concentrate on this, than to consider what you SHOULD do.

When peace comes at last to those who wrestle with temptation, and fight against giving in to sin; when the light comes at last into the mind given to contemplation, or when the goal is finally achieved by anyone, it ALWAYS comes with just ONE happy realization, – “I need do nothing.” Here is the ultimate release that everyone will one day find in his own way, at his own time. We do not need this time. Time has been SAVED for you, because you are together. This is the special means this course is using, to save you time.”

I love it! Don’t get overwhelmed by the paradox. Just realizle instead that you don’t have a clue. You could call it dependence on God. Each and every moment. But WAIT! That would mean letting go of my ideas, letting go of my need to control, letting go of my need to let go. Holy shit! I can’t do it. Of course YOU can’t, of yourself you can nothing but He Will, if you let Him.
