This is a course in miracles.
It is a required course.
Only the time you take it is voluntary.
Free will does not mean
that you can establish the curriculum.
It means only that you can elect
what you want to take at a given time.
The course does not aim
at teaching the meaning of love,
for that is beyond what can be taught.
It does aim, however, at removing the blocks
to the awareness of love’s presence,
which is your natural inheritance.
The opposite of love is fear,
but what is all-encompassing
can have no opposite.
This course can therefore be summed up
very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of god.
