What is real is eternal
“How simple is salvation! All it says is what was never true is not true now, and never will be. The impossible has not occurred, and can have no effects. And that is all.”
-A Course in Miracles
Fear is the belief that something real can be lost. The compulsive urge to hold onto situations, things, or people is confusion about reality.
That which can be changed, lost, or threatened was never real to begin with. Similarly, that which is true cannot be made untrue.
The peace of God is this deeper recognition of reality. The idea of losing our status, losing a job, losing our physical health—even losing a loved one—is what keeps us up at night. That urge to hold on—it is what drives us to push through a waking life devoid of joy, pleasure, and beauty.
The problem is that everything in physical form, in the realm of our senses, in the field of matter—it all changes. Maybe slowly, maybe suddenly, but the truth is it will leave us eventually.
Salvation is the ability to accept what is real.
Your creativity is the source of value. This is what generates abundance in every situation (not one particular job). Love and connection between souls is the ultimate truth (not one particular relationship). Stay aware of what is real.
Reality is consciousness, awareness itself. It is the energy of life, the unchanging laws of nature. Love is the whole truth. This all means the same thing.
Fear, frustration, boredom, anger—all negative emotions are caused by confusion over reality. To shift focus on reality and to always forgive non-reality is to find that state of ongoing joy and perfect love, absent of fear.
We are powerless against truth / reality. All power is found in the embrace of it and the rejection of all that is false.
This is spiritual awakening, the death of the ego. Herein lies everything we truly want and truly are. What is real is eternal.
