III. From Darkness to Light When you are weary, remember you have hurt yourself.  Your Comforter will rest you, but you cannot.  You do not know how, for if you did you could never have grown weary.  Unless you hurt yourself, you could never suffer in any way, for that is not God’s Will forContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 11 God or the Ego”

II. The Invitation to Healing If sickness is separation, the decision to heal and to be healed is the first step toward recognizing what you truly want.  Every attack is a step away from this, and every healing thought brings it closer.  The Son of God has both Father and Son because he is bothContinue reading “A COURSE IN MIRACLES Chapter 11 God or the Ego”
