Course is about training the mind, which it teaches is the active agent of our spirit or soul. Every idea presented is directly related to teaching our minds to awaken to what it is, the power it has and the necessary will to accept it. No mind will accept what it denies and be able to learn, when there is no desire or will to learn what needs to be learned.
A Human Body
The world teaches us we are human beings, and human beings have bodies. We can see our bodies in mirrors and in images and we see other bodies, making it easy to accept the idea that what we are… are bodies.
Course teaches, “Man CANNOT perceive himself correctly. He has no image at all. The word “image” is always perception related, and is not a product of knowing. Images are symbolic, and stand for something else.”
Yet, world teaches, maybe our body evolved from a single cell organism to monkeys and from monkeys, evolved and are still evolving to one day, be super humans with super-natural abilities.
Course teaches, “The body thinks no thoughts. It has no power to learn, to pardon, or enslave. It gives no orders that the mind need serve, nor sets conditions that it must obey. It holds in prison but the willing mind that would abide in it.”
So, my next question is, whose thinking thoughts, because there is something about us that knows we think. What has the power to learn if bodies with brains can’t? Why do we believe we are bodies, evolving from monkeys to become better humans, so our species can live better and longer lives in bodies?
We all have been exposed to preachings, teachings, and prophesies about the “end of time” and “the second coming”. Now we hear different terms like, “the awakening” and “the harvest”. So, I ask, are the terms the same concept, and if true, what do they really mean? An overview of the concept of “the second coming”, is featured below. I will share what I’ve found on the “the awakening” and “the harvest” in another writing. Meanwhile, check out what the course teaches about the “second coming”.
On the second coming, course teaches:
The first coming of Christ is just another name for the Creation, for Christ is the Son of God.
The SECOND coming of Christ means nothing more than the end of the belief in the ego, and the ego’s rule over part of the minds of men, and the healing of the mind.
Quoting from the course, Jesus says, “I was created like you in the First, and I am reminding you that I have called you to join with me in the Second.
I am in charge of the Second Coming as I have already told you, and my judgment, which is used only for its protection, cannot be wrong because it NEVER attacks.
Your egos are trying to convince you that THEY are real, and I am not, because if I AM real, I am no more real than YOU are. That knowledge, and I assure you that it IS knowledge, means that Christ must come into your minds and heal them.
While I am not attacking your egos, I AM working with your higher mind whether you are asleep or awake, (just as your ego does with your lower mind.) I am your vigilance in this, because you are too confused to recognize your own hope. I was not mistaken. Your minds WILL elect to join with mine, and together we are invincible.
The ego literally lives on borrowed time, and ITS days ARE numbered. Do not fear the last judgment, but welcome it and do not wait, for the ego’s time is borrowed from YOUR eternity.
This IS the Second Coming, which was made FOR you, as the First was created.
The Second Coming is merely the return of SENSE. Can this POSSIBLY be fearful?
The Second Coming is the awareness of Reality, not its RETURN.
Behold, my children, Reality is here. It belongs to you and me and God, and is perfectly satisfying to all of us. Only THIS awareness heals, because it is the awareness of truth.

Many claim NOT to be religious and I am one of them. Tried to be, but failed at it.
However, I am religious about expounding the study of our minds to learn how to think a better world.
On religion, the course teaches, “All religion is the recognition that the irreconcilable cannot BE reconciled”; “what can save each one of us, can save us all”; that “there is no difference among the Sons of God”.
“It is not the Will for Life, but the wish for death, that is the motivation for this world.
Its ONLY purpose is TO PROVE GUILT REAL. No worldly thought or act or feeling has a motivation other than this one. These are the witnesses that are called forth to be believed and lend conviction to the system they speak for and represent.
And each has many voices speaking to your brother and yourself in different tongues. And yet to both the message is the same”. Click here to learn what course teaches about religion.
