A Course in Miracles
Essential Course Concepts
It takes great learning both to realize and to accept the fact that the world has nothing to give. (M13.2)
No one can look upon the fear of God unterrified, unless he has accepted the Atonement and learned illusions are not real. (T19.D)
How far along are you in the great learning that will have you accepting that the world and everything in it are not real and have nothing to offer? To say you want to learn that the world and your body and your character self are not real is one thing. To mean it is another. How do you know if you “mean it”? Your actions will belie your beliefs.
Learning not to value the world or anything in it, learning to make the world, the body, and the character self insignificant and learning that all of this is not real is a daunting task. It is no less than salvation or the undoing of all this. But we can do it and we will do it. It is the way out of hell for us. Only the time it takes is up to us. It is God’s Will and ours.
“The lessons to be learned are only two. Each has its outcome in a different world “
“If you would be a happy learner, you must give everything you have learned to the Holy Spirit, to be unlearned for you.”
“Except for God’s teachers there would be little hope of salvation, for the world of sin would seem forever real.”
