“Father, it is today that I am free, because my will is Yours. I thought to make another will. Yet nothing that I thought apart from You exists. And I am free because I was mistaken, and did not affect my own reality at all by my illusions. Now I give them up, and lay them down before the feet of truth, to be removed forever from my mind. This is my holy instant of release. Father, I know my will is one with Yours.”
And so today we find our glad return to Heaven, which we never really left. The Son of God this day lays down his dreams. The Son of God this day comes home again, released from sin and clad in holiness, with his right mind restored to him at last.
This is Palm Sunday… this is how chapter 20 starts of the Urtext Manuscripts I read you the Introduction:
The Promise of the Resurrection – Introduction
The Holy Week starts on Palm Sunday and ends in Easter. It expresses in fact your spiritual awakening process. A process of the acceptance of the truth of the Reality of Who you are and its EXPRESSION.
If you see this as your awakening trajectory, and it is, then it becomes so inspiring to read or listen to what Jesus shares in A Course in Miracles.
Listen once more:
This week we celebrate eternal life, NOT death
Let him not wander into the temptation of crucifixion and DELAY him there. Help him go in peace BEYOND it, with the light of his own innocence lighting his way to his redemption and release..

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.
