A Course in Miracles

A Course in Miracles

– with Simon Christopher

Escape from Concepts

It can truly be said that forgiveness is the escape from concepts, and the discovery of the absolute simplicity of this Course is a great (un-)learning accomplishment. It is the result of the power of a decision for Heaven and the Peace of God in a consistency of effort and determination.

No-one who understands the nature of mind and the powerful hold illusions have been given upon it would attempt to take the journey through fear alone. As we join together obstacles are all laid by and the holy instant becomes a compelling reality: An instant of reality in which you remember that you are now and have always been perfect in the mind of God.

In this remembrance lies the awareness that suffering and loss, sickness and death are all without meaning or reality. Only the light, the joy and the peace that come from endless giving are present.

All this forgiveness offers you, and more. Forgiveness lets the veil be lifted up that hides the face of Christ from those who look with unforgiving eyes upon the world. It lets you recognize the Son of God, and clears your memory of all dead thoughts so that remembrance of your Father can arise across the threshold of your mind.
