The light of God surrounds us;
The love of God enfolds us;
The power of God protects us;
The presence of God watches over us.
Wherever we are, God is, and all is well.
INTRODUCTION TO MIRACLES
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 may 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.
