Choosing the Path to Love

Learn now, without despair, there is no hope of answer in the world.

Who would be willing to be turned away from all the roadways of the world, unless he understood their real futility?

The learning that the world can offer but one choice, no matter what its form may be, is the beginning of acceptance that there is a real alternative instead.

There is a choice that you have power to make when you have seen the real alternatives. …This course attempts to teach no more than that the power of decision cannot lie in choosing different forms of what is still the same illusion and the same mistake.

There is no road that leads away from Him. A journey from yourself does not exist.

Forgive yourself your madness, and forget all senseless journeys and all goal-less aims. They have no meaning. You can not escape from what you are. For God is merciful, and did not let His Son abandon Him. For what He is be thankful, for in that is your escape from madness and from death. Nowhere but where He is can you be found. There is no path that does not lead to Him. (A Course in Miracles, T-31.IV.4:3;5:1;6:1;8:1,3;10:4-5;11. See also ACIM Text Q & A.)

The ego offers countless paths that seem to offer hope of a semblance of happiness, peace and completion. But in keeping with its motto, seek and do not find, the ego’s paths never succeed in bringing the hoped for result. We must all come to the point of accepting that all the ego’s paths are empty illusions, leading nowhere.

The only real path leads to the Love and peace of God. This is the only choice we can make. It is the choice between reality and illusion. Willingness to make the choice for God comes with the recognition that the ego offers no real alternative.

We choose the path to Love by choosing to accept the Holy Spirit’s loving lessons which show us that what we valued in the world is nothing but an empty belief. The Holy Spirit is our Guide and Helper in bringing us the change of mind that welcomes the Truth that we are God’s Son, at one with Him. We are eternally at Home in the peace and Love of God.
