Attaining the State of Peace

Forget not that the motivation for this course is the attainment and the keeping of the state of peace. Given this state the mind is quiet, and the condition in which God is remembered is attained. It is not necessary to tell Him what to do. He will not fail. Where He can enter, there He is already. And can it be He cannot enter where He wills to be? Peace will be yours because it is His Will. Can you believe a shadow can hold back the Will that holds the universe secure? God does not wait upon illusions to let Him be Himself. No more His Son. They are. And what illusion that idly seems to drift between Them has the power to defeat what is [the Father’s and Son’s] Will?

To learn this course requires willingness to question every value that you hold. Not one [value] can be kept hidden and obscure but it will jeopardize your learning. No belief is neutral. Every [belief] has the power to dictate each decision you make. For a decision is a conclusion based on everything that you believe. [A decision] is the outcome of belief, and follows it as surely as does suffering follow guilt and freedom sinlessness. There is no substitute for peace. What God creates has no alternative. The truth arises from what He knows. And your decisions come from your beliefs as certainly as all creation rose in His Mind because of what He knows. (A Course in Miracles,T-24.in.1-2. See also ACIM Text Made Simple.)

All our guilt, fear, any lack of peace, comes from our belief that there is an alternative to God’s peace. The core of this belief is the wish to usurp our Creator and make our own universe, separate and distinct from the universe of Love’s oneness.

Only Love is real. Thus only in illusion does it seem to be possible to make a separate universe. This separate universe seems real only because of our belief in it. Beliefs can change. The reality of oneness cannot. The value we give everything in the dream of separation comes from our belief. This is why we must learn to question the value of everything we perceive in the world.

The Course provides a curriculum to teach us what is valuable and what is valueless. Illusions are valueless, but we must learn to recognize illusions for what they are. The curriculum is a guide for this learning. The benefit of learning this is peace. It is learning that we are perfectly safe, always. We remember that we are loved and loving. There is nothing else.
