There are no exceptions to this lesson, because the lack of exceptions is the lesson. -A Course in Miracles
What is a miracle? A miracle is nothing other than an act of love. To act in love is to perform miracles.
Perfect love is joy and no suffering can be found within joy. Following what is both true and wholly desirable ought to be very easy. No sacrifice is asked of you and nothing that is real or desirable can be lost.
Nothing is easier than recognizing and embracing this truth and nothing is more difficult to resist. Yet seeking exceptions to truth and a sea of confusion is the insane goal of this world. The world has chosen enormous suffering only to walk the foolish path of trying to make random illusions real and the simple truth false. Everything of this world can be enjoyed, but only after we humble ourselves by taking the obvious step to honor truth as real.
Until this lesson is learned, the suffering will only continue to increase. That’s the purpose of suffering—to push us into anguish until the obvious, beautiful, simple lesson of love is learned. You can learn it now and join together in the healing of the entire world.
