The philosophy of a course in miracles

HERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE PHILOSOPHY FOR YOU TO PONDER

Ozodi Osuji

THIS WORLD DOES NOT EXIST

YOU DO NOT EXIST AS AN EGO IN BODY

OTHER PEOPLE DO NOT EXIST AS EGOS IN BODIES

WHEN YOU ARE THINKING IN EGO YOUR MIND IS BLANK

WHEN YOU ARE BEHAVING IN EGO YOU ARE DOING NOTHING

IT IS WHEN YOU EMPTY YOUR MIND OF ALL EGO AND ITS THINKING AND BEHAVING THAT IN YOUR SILENT MIND YOUR REAL THOUGHTS DAWN, THE THOUGHTS OF THE SON OF GOD IN YOU, THE SON OF GOD IS ALWAYS THINKING, BUT YOU HAD FORGOTTEN IT AND NOW REMEMBER IT; THAT LEVEL OF THINKING IS CREATIVE AND CREATES PEOPLE AND THINGS,

THE IDEAS ABOVE ARE NOT OF OUR WORLD BUT COME FROM A DIFFERENT WORLD. THEY ARE THE IDEAS OF A COURSE IN MIRACLES AND MUST, THEREFORE, HAVE COME FROM OUTSIDE OUR EXTANT WORLD OR ARE NOT TRUE. IT ALSO SAYS THAT IF ATTACK ON YOU ARE REAL, IF OTHER PEOPLE CAN HARM YOU AND IF YOU WILL DIE THEN GOD DOES NOT EXIST AND IT WOULD BE A CRUEL JOKE TO SAY THAT GOD EXISTS AND RESURRECTS HIS SON WHEN HE IS DEAD; IT SAYS THAT OUR WORLD IS NOT REAL, IS A DREAM AND AS IN A DREAM NO ONE IS ATTACKING OR HARMING YOU; YOU ARE MERELY HAVING A DREAM WHERE YOU SEE PEOPLE ATTACKING AND HARMING YOU AND ULTIMATELY YOU DIE, ALL NOT TRUE. BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT RUE THEN YOU MUST FORGIVE THOSE YOU SEE HARM YOU FOR, THEY DID NO SUCH THING AND YOU DID NOT DIE. PONDER THESE THOUGHTS AND SEE IF THEY MAKE SENSE TO YOU. WHY NOT, NOTHING IN OUR EXTANT WORLD MAKES SENSES, ANYWAY, SO WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE BY CONSIDERING OUT OF SPACE, TIME, AND MATTER IDEAS?

      A course in miracles says that our extant world of space, time and matter does not exist. It says that you do not exist in ego separated self in body and that other people do not exist in egos and bodies.

     It says that when you are thinking from your ego and body that your mind is blank; that when you are behaving from your ego and body that you are doing nothing.

      It says that it is when you stop thinking in ego and stop behaving from ego and body and make your mind silent of all ego thoughts and ego categories that you become aware of your real thinking.

      Your real thoughts are the thoughts of the son of God, who is your real self, that real you, the son of God thinks creatively; its thinking produces other sons of God and things.

     The book says that if other people can harm you and make you experience what you do not want to experience and if after suffering in body you die that God does not exist, for a God that allows his sons to suffer, and die is not a loving God.

     And if the harm that other people did to you is real you have every right to be angry and defend yourself and insist on punishing evil doers and live for as long as you can in ego and body and then die out.

      But if the evils that happen to you on earth have not happened to you, then defense makes it seem real and defenselessness shows their unreality; defenselessness is thus the right way to live, it gives us peace and joy.

     It says that our world is a dream and nothing we see happen in it has happened for a second. Because it is a collective and individual dream, we have not harmed anyone else and no one else has harmed us, all of us remain as God created us, innocent, guiltless, sinless, and holy.

     All of us share oneself with each other and with God.

     Because there are no other people and no one has harmed you and the world has done nothing to you, therefore, it makes perfect sense for you to forgive those you see harm you on earth and to accept that there is no death.

      As existentialist philosophers, such as Sartre, Camus, Jasper, Heidegger, Kierkegaard, Kafka,  point out, our world does not make sense, not one aspect of our world makes sense,  so what have you got to lose by entertaining the thought that the ideas of A course in miracles that do not seem to make sense to our ego minds may make sense at a different level, Christ level?

     The thoughts of heaven do not make sense to those in the world of separation and the thoughts of those in the world of separation do not make sense to those in in the world of union, heaven.

     The above ideas are not how we think on earth; they must have come from outside our world or else they are the thoughts of a mad person.

    If you understand what I said above and practice it, you are now a Zen Master, A Hindu God realized person, a Buddhist enlightened and illuminated person (to be enlightened is to experience all existence as part of one’s unified self, to end separated things, hence end ego, matter, space and time).

    The philosophy of A course in miracles, which is the same as Zen Buddhism, Buddhism, Gnosticism and Taoism, negates our ego based philosophy; ego mental constructions attempt to adapt to the exigence of our world of seeming accidence, chance and randomness; whereas the philosophy presented above negates our world and sees our world as chosen by each of us, as not what happens to us against our wishes; because it is our choice, we can choose to let it go and experience the world of union we came from.

     Think about it. The chances are that it will not make sense to you unless you are a mystic!
