I think often of my early experience with A Course in Miracles: my investment in being right about it, in taking the right stands, siding with the right wave of opinion, and so forth.
That’s natural enough, in the sense that it’s judgmental and harsh, which is how we have learned to perceive and function. And really, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are quite indifferent to what we think of them and their assorted curricula. Their patience is infinite. A lifetime is as a second.
In time I learned that right and wrong are not helpful. They don’t move me towards peace and kindness and love. They keep me fractured. They are always tacit endorsements of our separation from God. What works for you? What pries open your spiteful heart and lets a little light in and – most importantly – allows a little light out?
Trust that. It is Christ in you leading you away from the world of bodies and time and into eternity, into Love. Be like a child willing to be led by a loving parent. No more is asked of us. You know where the light is: you know how to be loving. It is – beyond all the drama and drudgery and anguish of existence – the singular fact of which you are composed.
Find it: stay with it: extend it.
