Day 31 Intro || Priestess ACIM Lesson


Funny how sometimes as we are getting to the end of something we crave a refresher on where it all began…

This was the case for me as it is my 31st day of studying A Course in Miracles and this morning I had the impulse to revisit the introduction of this beautiful text. It is short and sweet yet poignant and rich with meaning!

The simplest of words are often the most profound. As my babe who has quite a way with short yet cut straight through to your very soul lines would say; “it’s an Irish thing, the paddy always knows😉”. That they do! Well, maybe this intro was written in the spirit of a beloved Irish priest or monk or elevated clover infused individual because the wisdom and emotion that’s expressed in so few words is beyond! I’ll let it speak for itself:

Diving in Here:

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

-A Course in Miracles

Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum.

-A Course in Miracles

The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught.

-A Course in Miracles

It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance.

-A Course in Miracles

The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.

-A Course in Miracles

This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way: 

Nothing real can be threatened. 

Nothing unreal exists. 

Herein lies the peace of God.

-A Course in Miracles

Loving you,
