The social network for students and teachers of "A Course in Miracles"
It's by forgiving the world that you will awaken, and realize that you never left Heaven, and have remained exactly as God created you, which is perfect spirit. As J puts it, reminding us again that his themes in the Course are simple and consistent, 'You are as God created you. All else but this one thing is folly to believe. In this one thought is everyone set free. In this one truth are all
illusions gone. In this one fact is sinlessness proclaimed to be forever part of everything, the central core of its existence and its guarantee of immortality.'
But always remember the forgiveness that leads to this experience must be done at the level of cause and not effect, as J points out very early in the Text, 'You must change your mind, not your behavior, and this is a matter of willingness. You do not need guidance except at the mind level. Correction belongs only at the level where change is possible. Change does not mean anything at the symptom level, where it cannot work.'
