Welcome!

This is a blog about A Course in Miracles and similar readings.  Comments are welcomed.  Enjoy!

The introduction to the textbook of the Course has the following statement:

“This course can be summed up very simply in this way:

Nothing real can be threatened. 

Nothing unreal exists. 

Herein lies the peace of God”

What is “real”?  Love, peace, joy, forgiveness.  God’s real world.  To reach the real world, we need to show forgiveness to our brothers and sisters, who are lost in dreams that constitute a form of madness.  Thus they are actually innocent of wrongdoing.  One would not be angry at a person in our world who was certifiably insane, and the Course says that a similar form of madness actually inflicts us all.  Try to remember that “nothing unreal exists,” and we will be well on our way to understanding what the Course teaches.
