No truer words were ever spoken. You are as God created you. That is your reality, it is the one true thought that puts everything in right perspective.
This single thought, held firmly in the mind, would save the world. From time to time we will repeat it, as we reach another stage in learning. It will mean far more to you as you advance. These words are sacred, for they are the words God gave in answer to the world you made. By them it disappears, and all things seen within its misty clouds and vaporous illusions vanish as these words are spoken. For they come from God.
There is a light in you that is not of this world. It is what you are. The awareness of this light shows you that only God is real and that the world in which you seem to find yourself is not. In God all things are possible. In God do all things fall into place. In your awareness that you are as God created you, you recognize that there is no need for you to control anything. This world was over a long time ago, you are only re-living a memory, and everything has already happened. This is not an excuse for you to do whatever you want, like it doesn’t matter, it is the awareness that all things matter totally and that you let yourself be guided by the Voice for God. If you want a new experience, that is. Otherwise, just keep doing what you’re doing. The outcome will be death.
A Course In Miracles is for you who question death. Because you can, in fact, question it. Just because everything around you proclaims it as your reality, doesn’t mean that it has any reality whatsoever. When you recognize that you are the cause of everything, you can stop listening to insanity. And it is insanity to insist that you are separate from God, lost in a world with crazy laws that has power over you, and that your life will end in death. Let’s open up your mind for just a little. Let’s let a little light in. Let’s remember that God is Love and that He created you in His Likeness.
I am as God created me.
Holy indeed is he who makes these words his own; arising with them in his mind, recalling them throughout the day, at night bringing them with him as he goes to sleep. His dreams are happy and his rest secure, his safety certain and his body healed, because he sleeps and wakens with the truth before him always. He will save the world, because he gives the world what he receives each time he practices the words of truth.
So now you walk the world with a new purpose. Now you let your light shine. And you have to give it away in order to know that you have it. That is the law of the universe. No big deal, but it’s all the deal there is. Let your light shine today, be in the total and complete awareness that you are as God created you. You don’t try to make your life more comfortable, you simply hand it over to God. You don’t try to be succesful here, you know that your reward is in Heaven. And you stand, every single moment, in the awareness that there is no world. It’s an uncompromising message. Just let it be exactly what it is.
