Now you may fully realize the distinction between the ego-self that previously was the self of learning, and the Christ-Self that is now the Self of learning and experience.
You must take on the mantle of your new identity, your new Self.
Christ, A Course of Love T2.3.4
Remember always that your heart is where the Christ in you abides and that Christ is your identity.
Remember that it the Christ in you that learns and raises learning to the holiest of levels.
It is the Christ in you that learns to walk the earth as child of God, as who you really are.
Jesus, A Course of Love T2.3.3
There would be no need for corn if there had been no desire for expression. Life is the desire to express outwardly what exists within.
Jesus, A Course of Love T2.3.2
Your life is already an act of creation. It was created. All of it. It exists, fully realized within you. Your work here is to express it.
Jesus, A Course of Love T2.3.1
Now your final instruction is here. You have found peace–live in peace. You have been given the Peace of God–go in Peace. Spread Peace throughout the land.
Go out in peace and love and service to all. For in this going out you come home and bring with you all the brothers and sisters you have brought to peace.
Go in peace to love and serve with all your heart. Thus are we one heart, one mind, one unity. Thus are we one in relationship of love and peace that is our eternal home.
Welcome home my brothers and sisters in Christ. Welcome home.
~ Christ, A Course of Love T1.10.15
The extremes that we are talking of leaving behind are extreme of reaction to a chosen lesson. What you are being asked to leave behind is the need for such lessons.
If you have learned the curriculum, what further lessons are needed? What quite knowing cannot come to you in peace?
Why would you believe you can learn from the turmoil of extremes what you cannot learn in peace eternal?
~ Christ, A Course of Love T1.10.12
Are you being asked to give up extremes? Yes. You are being asked to give up all that would take peace from you.
But as you have been told before, you will be giving up nothing.
It will seem if it is so for a while perhaps. You will continue to be attracted to those living at the extremes and there is no reason not to take joy in observing another’s happiness or to feel compassion at another’s suffering. But you need not partake and you cannot partake if you are going to carry the Peace of God with you.
~ Jesus, A Course of Love T1.10.7
You used your free will to choose the human experience. Now are you willing to use it to choose the Peace of God instead?
Can you wholeheartedly choose peace? Can you choose peace long enough to become accustomed to joy without sorrow?
~ Jesus, A Course of Love T1.10.5
You cannot await some changed state but must create the changed state you want.
Jesus, A Course of Love T1.9.3
Whether you be male or female matters not, as you are in truth, the union of each.
Jesus, A Course of Love T1.9.2
I was proclaimed to be the Word incarnate, the union of the human and the divine, the manifestation of the Will of God. I have told you that you are no different than I was. Now I call you to be no different than I am.
~ Christ, A Course of Love T1.8.1
To experience what is and to acknowledge what is, one must be present, present as a human being.
To experience what is and to acknowledge what is as a gift of God is to be present as a divine being having a human experience.
No part of being is negated. All senses and feelings of the human being are called into awareness and yet there is also acknowledgement of the Creator behind the Created.
Jesus, A Course of Love T.1.2.21
