The journey Home through “A Course in Miracles” is about seeing everything as your own lesson and being totally uncompromising with that. As you heal perception you begin to experience a peaceful mind. Learn of the true meaning of cause and effect as the Spirit would teach it; that problems in the world have no cause outside of mind, and are simply attempts to deviate your mind away from realizing your own perfection. You are the real Effect (the Son) of the one Cause (God).
Certainty does not rest on future events or circumstances. It allows all things to be exactly as they are, and simply rests. When you try to plan and predict from the ego’s perspective, you live in uncertainty and often feel anxious or fearful. Dive into the depths of the true meaning of certainty and the practical steps towards experiencing the Certainty of God all throughout the day. Become clueless, and, “Hold onto nothing. Do not bring with you one thought the past has taught, nor one belief you ever learned before from anything. Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God.” W-189.7
