From the Introduction to A Course In Miracles
This course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance.
The opposite of love is fear, but what is all- encompassing can have no opposite.
This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.
The Course tells us that “the holiest place on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love.” Transformation becomes an intimate, personal and mostly anonymous process of converting through forgiveness our “ancient hatreds” that we have projected onto our relationships,
our bodies, and distort our sense of identity. And as we heal,
we step past our fear-based illusions and become an expression
of the Truth of Reality of the Being whose unfoldment is this universe.
Transformation is a physical as well as a spiritual occurrence.
