Form and Content are related ideas which are central to the curriculum of A Course in Miracles. Form is what the body‘s eyes recognize. Form is what perception makes appear real. Yet the form is merely a vehicle for the content, which is always either love or a call for love. We might think of a book as an example. A long book with hundreds of paper pages and a blue cover is not itself healing – but the ideas reflected in it can be. Confusing form and content is a major focus of correction in the course. We are apt to take the form for the content, and thus miss the content altogether. For example, we might see a homeless person asking for money. Responding with cash may or may not be called for – that is the level of form. The content is seeing the homeless person as our equal, as our own self, and recognizing in them the same cry for love that exists in us. When we see the content, then our response will be directed by Love because we are no longer insisting on differences. Whatever we do will be what is most helpful in the grand plan of salvation, the scope of which is always beyond our limited faculties.
