“No-one can suffer loss unless it be his own decision. No-one suffers pain except his choice elects this state for him. No-one can grieve nor fear nor think him sick unless these are the outcomes that he wants. And no-one dies without his own consent. Nothing occurs but represents your wish, and nothing is omitted that you choose. Here is your world, complete in all details. Here is its whole reality for you. And it is only here salvation is.
You may believe that this position is extreme, and too inclusive to be true. Yet can truth have exceptions?…“
A Course In Miracles, from Jesus, is completely uncompromising. And its freely available to anyone who wants to hear it. You begin to see just what forgiveness has to offer. It is completely reasonable and offers you complete release from your self imposed nightmare of guilt. But do you really want to be released?
“As God created you, you must remain unchangeable with transitory states by definition false. And that includes all shifts in feeling, alterations in conditions of the body and the mind, in all awareness and in all response. This is the all-inclusiveness which sets the truth apart from falsehood, and the false kept separate from the truth as what it is.”
I know you don’t see any benefit in this Course to you, that’s because there isn’t any. You are as God Created you.Period! You can bitch and moan all you like, you can say your an atheist or even that God created sickness, pain and death, for whatever reason you may think but when it’s all said and done, you are as God Created you.
I find that a relief.
