Resurrection is the mythological fact in our shared projection of Jesus that both informs and establishes the atonement principle of A Course in Miracles. We rise from a dream of death and sickness to eternal life as Christ in God. The crucifixion becomes our last useless journey because resurrection nullifies it. The happy truth is that you cannot kill what is eternal, you can only pretend to. Death is an illusion; life is what we are. In this way, the resurrection is the mythological assurance that peace and joy are the inevitable fruits of awakening.
