To gain the most from A Course in Miracles Text Made Simple, we recommend that
you read the corresponding chapter and section in the Text of the Second or
Third Edition of A Course in Miracles published by the Foundation for Inner Peace.
Read Text “Introduction” (page 1).
The first few sentences of paragraph one can come across as saying that this book is the only way to God. It’s helpful to understand what is meant by “required course.” What is required is that we learn to forgive, or let go of illusions. It says in Workbook Lesson 256, paragraph one that forgiveness is the only way to God. It is important not to confuse the form with the content. A Course in Miracles is one form that teaches the required course of forgiveness. ACIM is not the only way to learn the required lessons of forgiving illusions.
On page 283 of the Text it says that the curriculum is the release from guilt. (T-14.V.6:4) Release from guilt comes from forgiveness. Forgiveness comes from letting go of separation. As we let go of separation, we awaken to the certainty that we never left Heaven. We awaken to the fact that we are still Love, as God created us. That is why “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” When we realize that Love cannot be threatened, we are in peace. This recognition comes with our willingness to let go of what is not true. The curriculum of A Course in Miracles teaches us how to do this. With this comes the release from guilt.
