"Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God."
- A Course In Miracles -

Dear friends,

Never labor under the idea that God has given you a problem, whether for your learning, for your growth, or for your punishment. Being indivisibly One, He is incapable of conflict. This means that Creation, the infinite extension of what He is, must be the embodiment of what He is - indivisible and undivided.

That which is not the embodiment of God does not exist, leaving all else to be recognized and acknowledged for what It is - the flawless presence of God expressed, indivisible and undivided. Failure to see this is not proof that God uses contrasts, opposites, to give definition to Himself or His Creation. It simply means that you have neglected to challenge and invalidate your perception of what must necessarily be perfect and unflawed.

Forgiveness is the withdrawal of your investment in your perceptions. It is your willingness to recognize that which is Real in each and every thing. It is your willingness to look with eyes of innocence, with Vision undistorted by conclusions you have drawn while being inattentive to Reality - perfect, indivisible and undivided.

Faith is the focus you bring to your attentiveness to God and His perfection right where the opposite has been introduced by inattention to Reality - the only thing there is to see.

In light of this, there is no justification, no explanation, no excuse for sin, disease and death. There is no blessing they can confer on you. They do not exist, because they do not embody God.

You do embody God, and therefore where you are, they cannot be!
