7 Lies A TRAINING COURSE In Miracless Tell
Have you ever heard the expression “it is what it really is”? What does that expression mean exactly?
Before I understood the deeper meaning of this expression, I envisioned an emaciated yogi guru in the lotus position floating above the bottom imperiously imparting wisdom that could take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret. Since how this is my last life on earth and the lotus position would put me in traction, I knew that consulting the Course In Miracles would help me clarify its meaning.
What is the IT that people are writing about here? According to the Course in Miracles, It really is truth, specifically God’s truth. Why is it important to emphasize that it is God’s truth? Because God’s truth is not open to interpretations whereas a human’s facts are. Multiple versions of human truth have lead to an array of religions. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia defines religion as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that’s shared by way of a group and that gives the members an object of devotion.”
Who devised the system of thought? On whose feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? According to the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal would be to return to an ideal state of being. There is no thought or action in the state of being, you just are. What must not be forgotten may be the underlying thread of most religions: God is creator, God is love and we all have been perfect and infinite children of God.
Most find it very unsettling to take into account the theory that choice is actually an illusion, or the illusion of choice, as stated in A Course in Miracles (ACIM). You make choices everyday, therefore the idea of choice not being real seems highly illogical also to say the least, improbable, given its consistent daily use. Although choice is necessary while you are here, it ultimately remains part of the illusion and is not an integral part of God. Choice is unsettling as you believe it to be necessary, not since it is an illusion.”
It stands to reason you are in what you think about as this world as you have made the decision, or choice, because of this world to be real. In the event that you keep on making that same choice, it keeps on becoming more and more real. ACIM clearly points out that ideas do not leave their source. Who then will be the source? What choices are you really making?

You imagine this world is real as you made the choice to believe the ego’s version of reality from the original separation. Those initial perceptions are accompanied by the next choice that is to judge the outcomes, thereby producing further consequences which reinforce the belief in this world. It is a vicious, no-win cycle. As you perceive you’ll judge; and as you judge you’ll perceive. Error is made real by this simple twisted deception. Withdraw your decision to believe in the results and the error can be corrected.
Choice and Source:
Would you not then function as source since you are the one making the choice to believe? You don’t remember that original separation; however, you’re making choices now, and you also are doing so all the time. Every moment you are choosing between thoughts, feelings and ideas, etc. If it isn’t you, then who do you want to claim is responsible? Be careful, because claiming another is responsible is actually blame and you haven’t any power to change so long as you think another is in control. You are simply making yourself a victim. Both of these are ego tricks.
Accepting responsibility for everything, including choice and its consequences is the fastest way to change. This allows one to choose again because you can see the outcomes and realize that you must have chosen in error. It is your thoughts and beliefs combined with decision, or choice, to make them true that becomes the effect of everything you see in your world. REGULATIONS of Cause and Effect is simple: In line with the mind you pick from, as cause, you will notice the corresponding effect.
So long as as you’ve got a split mind, you are constantly choosing between the wrong mind of the ego (error) and the proper Mind of the Holy Spirit (correction). You will notice the effect depending on the choice of actually use as cause. You cannot have two masters. In the ego world, it is usually one or another. Choosing the correction of the Holy Spirit undoes the error of the ego and returns your brain to the peace of God. This technique is also referred to as forgiveness.
Choice for Correction:
Forgiveness is nothing more than your mind being returned, or corrected, back to the Truth because you decide for it to be this way. Handing on the ego’s judgments corrects your brain and correction is what? Forgiveness. Another cause results in another effect.
Choice is, therefore, necessary in this illusion because there is something to select between. However, the best usage of choice is served by knowing both error and correction sides of the split mind, or what you are choosing between. Then, simply remember that your goal is to return the mind to True Perception and choose again! It will also help to keep at heart the coinciding terms for True Perception: Correction, forgiveness, salvation, atonement, truth, Holy Spirit and God. There is absolutely no difference.
