In this post some text and video of the online DAILY MIRACLE class of last Monday (01-31) in which we looked at another key lesson of A Course in Miracles. In the class I promised to share some paragraphs from chapter 20. This was in relationship with the key lesson 23: I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts.
Nothing can hurt you, unless you give it the power to do so.For YOU give power as the laws of this world INTERPRET giving; as you give, you LOSE. It is not up to you to give power at all. Power is of God, GIVEN by Him, and RE‐AWAKENED by the Holy Spirit, Who knows that, as you give you GAIN. He gives NO power to sin, and therefore it HAS none. Nor to its results, as this world sees them; sickness and death and misery and pain. These things have not occurred, because the Holy Spirit sees them not, and gives no power to their seeming source. Thus would He keep you free of them.Entering the Ark, Ch. 20 first paragraph, Urtext Manuscripts A Course in Miracles, Miracles in Action Press 2008.
