外围体育投注If we are already finished on our journey to God and there is nothing we need do, isn't it arrogant to make a curriculum to instruct us how to get there?
外围体育投注And yet we are taught by the bible 'the wages of sin is death', but what is sin but our own and our brother's and sister's own judgement of what we do?
外围体育投注Let me reword the first question: Isn't it arrogant to tell us that we should humble ourselves before our brother's and sister's judgement and choose an agreed path between us?
And yet who writes the curriculum except ourselves amongst ourselves, does the Course really teach us in such a way that helps everyone?
外围体育投注Who can judge that the Course will appropriately teach someone except someone who fully understands the Course?
外围体育投注LESSON 226. My home awaits me. I will hasten there.
If I so choose, I can depart this world entirely. It is not death which makes this possible, but it is change of mind about the purpose of the world. If I believe it has a value as I see it now, so will it still remain for me. But if I see no value in the world as I behold it, nothing that I want to keep as mine or search for as a goal, it will depart from me. For I have not sought for illusions to replace the truth.
外围体育投注Father, my home awaits my glad return. Your Arms are open and I hear Your Voice. What need have I to linger in a place of vain desires and of shattered dreams, when Heaven can so easily be mine?
Hi. I have just started the workbook (at lesson 8), and I am at the same time reading the course itself. So far I feel like I have been able to do the exercises quite well, however, I do wonder about something.
外围体育投注For the lessons that require 1 minute of "searching your mind". Do you just sit still and let thoughts come to you, or do you actively search for thoughts? If so, do you try to find the thoughts that you regularly think about in your daily life (good and bad)? Whenever I give myself a minute, the thoughts that come to me are usually about whether I am doing it correctly, how much time is left, why can't I come up with some thoughts etc etc. I realise that these too are thoughts. Should I then just write those thoughts down?

LESSON 225. God is my Father, and His Son loves Him.
外围体育投注Father, I must return Your Love for me, for giving and receiving are the same, and You have given all Your Love to me. I must return it, for I want it mine in full awareness, blazing in my mind and keeping it within its kindly light, inviolate, beloved, with fear behind and only peace ahead. How still the way Your loving Son is led along to You!
外围体育投注Brother, we find that stillness now. The way is open. Now we follow it in peace together. You have reached your hand to me, and I will never leave you. We are one, and it is but this oneness that we seek, as we accomplish these few final steps which end a journey that was not begun.
