If you fail to see beyond appearances you are deceived. (A Course in Miracles)
We are never going back to sleep

The world was made that problems could not be escaped. (A Course in Miracles)

The end of all the world’s roads is the same. “Their end is certain, for there is no choice among them. All of them will lead to death.” A Course in Miracles continues, “there is no choice where every end is sure.”

“Men have died on seeing this, because they saw no way except the pathways offered by the world. And learning they led nowhere, lost their hope. And yet this was the time they could have learned their greatest lesson. All must reach this point, and go beyond it.”

“No longer look for hope where there is none. Make fast your learning now.” “For from this lowest point will learning lead to heights of happiness, in which you see the purpose of the lesson shining clear, and perfectly within your learning grasp.” -All quotes from A Course in Miracles

It is perfectly right that we speak the truth, do what’s right in this world, and hope for happenings that alleviate suffering and bring justice. We can seek loving, beautiful relationships. We can achieve great things, raise wonderful families, and experience every adventure life has to offer. But none of this is salvation.

The Great Awakening is not to be brought about by any political or military action. It is what happens when we learn this most important lesson…when we stop looking to the future…when we discover God’s love within…when we align with Love in all thinking and doing. This escaping of ego and embracing of reality is the lesson. You are complete, in love, in truth, in perfection, now—no matter external events.
