Feel Kristen's certainty. Feel her joy. Feel her inner peace. Does her happy spiritual state of being come from doing something, from studying, from watching her ego mind? Or does it come from simply experiencing the truth of her prayer: "Father, you stand before me and behind, beside me, in the place I see myself, and everywhere I go."
A Course in Miracles, modern day revelation from Jesus Christ, teaches us that doing something, doing anything, is an ego device to keep us from the relief of all pain, fear, and guilt; and from the solution to every problem. A Course in Miracles invites us to give away all our doing ... and see what happens. Here are words of Jesus:
"When peace comes at last to those who wrestle with temptation, and fight against giving in to sin; when the light comes at last into the mind given to contemplation, or when the goal is finally achieved by anyone, it ALWAYS comes with just ONE happy realization, - "I need do nothing." Here is the ultimate release that everyone will one day find in his own way, at his own time. We do not need this time. Time has been SAVED for you, because you are together. This is the special means this course is using, to save you time.
"You are not making use of the course if you insist on using means that have served others well, neglecting what was made for YOU. Save time for me by only this one preparation, and practice doing NOTHING ELSE. "I need do nothing" is a statement of allegiance, a truly undivided loyalty. Believe it for just one instant, and you will accomplish more than is given to a century of contemplation, or of struggle against temptation." (ACIM Unedited Version Text Chap. 22)
"...nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21)
