A Course In Miracles – The Revolution Is Not Being Televised, Because It’s Just A Re-Run.

I have been reading and hearing a lot about the idea of revolution. A tax revolution, the revolution in education, Technological Revolution and on and on. And the thing that is so often missed is the fact that all a revolution does is bring you back to where you started. Some interesting guys, from many different time frames, have written about fighting against the tyranny of oppression.

Hamlet :
To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.–Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remember’d.”

Ezekiel 25:17 :
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.”

Leo Tolstoy :
“If only each King, Emperor, and President understood that his work of directing armies is not an honourable and important duty, as his flatterers persuade him it is, but a bad and shameful act of preparation for murder — and if each private individual understood that the payment of taxes wherewith to hire and equip soldiers, and, above all, army-service itself, are not matters of indifference, but are bad and shameful actions by which he not only permits but participates in murder — then this power of Emperors, Kings, and Presidents, which now arouses our indignation, and which causes them to be murdered, would disappear of itself.”

It is to this point that I would bring your attention to a true revolution, a necessary revolution, a revolution of the Mind. You are a creation from the Mind of God, as an Eternal extension of Creation. Yet you suffer from the tyranny of your own obsession with separation. Yet, it is to this Mind that you MUST return because the idea of separation is not possible. There is nowhere for you to go. You have and always will be a whole part of the Mind of God.

This IS a dream. A dream of tyranny, a dream in which you are being tempted to engage. I know, full well, the temptation to engage in the “outrageous injustice” that goes on in my dream. It comes in cycles but never leads to any real change or any real Peace… a sigh of relief “final a black president, maybe things ARE changing for the better” (who turns out to be exactly like every other president). On and on it goes. A little hope given to keep you in the chase… What a nightmare!

A Course In Miracles, Jesus, works within the fabric of MY dream and will use everything that seems to be happening to me to show me the Truth. Do I really want the Truth? Do I really want to awaken and return to the True Source of my Reality? And this is why it is so hard for a rich man to enter Heaven, not because being rich is bad it’s because he has so much investment in the dream of separation. Yet a dream of separation is not real so the investment is in nothing. Where’s YOUR treasure?
