The bliss of ignorance is allotted to children for their protection. But as we grow we must learn, for it is in coming to new understanding we become
wise, and our wisdom thus protects us from ignorance. Students of the Course, I humbly offer you insight, hoping you will avoid the pain I caused
myself through my own ignorance.
The Course in Miracles was not inspired by Jesus Christ. If you had a defensive reaction to the previous statement you are still chained. I understand
the situation. I can prove this. Here are the opening two lines: "This is a Course in Miracles. It is a required course." In our creation God gave
us free will. To say a certain course is required implies the source does not know God fully, for it arrogantly implies that 1) God would communicate
the "best" way and 2) that we really don't have free will. If God is in eternity, why would there be any need to "save time" by performing
miracles. God is not in a hurry. God knows, because he created us, that by our decisions we will come to know ourselves and Him. The term "miracles"
is misleading cuz it leads the reader to think of current understanding of miracles. Now, it is said that a miracle is "an expression of love", yes?
Then indeed the Spirit, if It was the source, would name it a Course in Love, which would be unambiguous and perfectly clear. And what would benefit
any spiritual student more than a book filled will messages all perfectly consistent with love?
God's love is unconditional. Your decisions are yours to make and learn from. The concept of "ego" is a lie invented by liars whose only goal is to
convince you that you are the inventor. Hear this now, listen to wisdom: By the courses own suggestion to "teach only love, for that is what you
are" is it undone. To teach the concept of "ego" at all is inconsistent with love. To teach duality is to imply objectivity. Only God has true
objectivity, for all of creation exists within God. So, the inventor of the course implies that they have perfect understanding of the truth, yet if
they did all they taught would be consistent with love. This makes perfect sense; for the Spirit, knowing the Law of Attraction, would understand that
attention and study of love brings more understanding consistent with love. Having full awareness of truth, Spirit could only communicate truth. The
ego is a concept the source of the material invented, not you. And teaching the concept of "ego" implies belief in it. The message of a book is a
reflection of its source. The course teaches a "split mind" cuz the source is insane, by the courses own logic. Let's take that to the next step
then: the source, not wanting to take responsibility for its own insanity, projects it on to you, thinking it has absolved itself of the
responsibility. The source, if it did have total understanding, would suggest to you only the truth and allow you to come to an understanding of it
yourself. One which has complete understanding communicates to those who misunderstand their understanding, and thus is their understanding shared.
This follows from the teachers recognition of equality with those who misunderstand, and willingness to share. It would be pointless to tell one who
wants to understand that he does not understand, and then go into great detail describing his misunderstanding. All the while the student feels crappy
cuz the arrogant teacher is belittling him by emphasizing his misunderstanding, as if it is useful at all or as useful as simply sharing
The source is of course, the government. Who else would be so arrogant and hateful as to claim to be the Holy Spirit while demonstrating repeatedly
that they do not understand Spirit? Look at that poor woman who wrote it. To the one who is so attached to the Course that they overlook the toll it
took on the writer, look again. Could anything from Spirit do this?
