“You cannot distort reality and know what it is—and if you do distort reality, you will experience anxiety, depression, and ultimately panic because you are trying to make yourself unreal.
When you feel these things, do not look beyond yourself for truth. For truth can only be within you.” A Course in Miracles
Anxiety, depression, panic—all forms of fear that emerge from any mind that believes it is separate. Separate from God, separate from other minds, separate from nature, separate from the universe. In truth, you are the oneness.
All suffering, all problems, all struggles, all negative emotions flow from this one problem.
To undo this problem is to undo unnecessary suffering—ending your problems and returning you to your natural state of joy. This is awakening to consciousness, being, stillness. You are pure consciousness, observing this eternal present moment, feeling the joy of love. The confused, separated mind has been blocking this truth.
You have temporarily inherited a mind and body—which is unstable and will ultimately be taken from you. But you, as consciousness or spirit, are eternal truth. The body is a learning instrument for a mind that is service to spirit—which is you, which is love, which is a part of God. Faith is simply knowing this. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
