“A Required Course”

“This is a course in miracles. It is a required course.”

The Course says that it is “a required course” — not the required course.

Learning it is why we are here. We will learn this material.

We are here to make decisions. The Course frames the world as a classroom for us to learn how to undo the teachings of the ego, which have evolved over the course of time. This is a course for learning to choose to reflect love.

This does not mean that everyone in the world must study The Course. From the “Clarification of Terms” in the “Teacher’s Manual” volume of The Course:

“A universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is …necessary.”

If The Course resonates with you, then it is for you. If it does not resonate for you, then perhaps something else does. What’s right for anyone is informed by their own intuition, higher power & journey.

In order to awaken from the dream of spiritual separation, a spiritual awakening must dawn upon us. Forgiveness liberates us, which the ego resists. We are trying to find a better way, which means relinquishing the ego as our identity.
