Continue to Learn?

“Some will choose to continue to learn through the full variety of the human experience even after it is unnecessary.  Why?  Because it is a choice, pure and simple.  (The Treatises of A Course of Love:  ‘A Treatise on the New,’ 7.8)”

Affirmation:  “full variety of human experience”


This suggests that many of us will live on earth long after the time that the elevated Self of form has been accomplished.  The elevated Self of form, of course, is the sustained Christ-consciousness.  Most of us will leave “learning” behind, but there are those who love to learn, and this will not be denied them.  They will still make their contributions to the All.

We are always given choices in this world.  Free will is a probable will (an ACOL tenet).  God placed the limits on our ability to miscreate, but only to save ourselves from destroying ourselves (an ACIM tenet).  We will know by studying both ACIM and ACOL that our real will is actually the same as the Will of God.  We will not vacillate between following guidance (as the thought of the Holy Spirit or through direct revelation from God) and following what we perceive as our “own” will.  This “own” will is likely to be a holdover from the days when the ego held sway.

Let us resolve to let the ego wither away.  And God will help us to do just that.


Dear Father/Mother,

I have always loved learning, but maybe I need to realize that there is a stopping point.  Continued seeking for religious truths is not needed when the Answer has been given to me.  May I move forward today with the assurance that I can “let it be.”

Thank You for given me the assurance that there will be an Answer, an assurance that came in the night.  I know now what You were trying to tell me.  Please be with me today as I live out Your promise.
