A Course in Miracles teaches: “You have but two emotions, love and fear.” T-13.V.1 Ultimately the only thing we are afraid of, is Love. The ego would have you believe that there are other, specific things in the world to fear, because it wants to protect itself from being exposed to the light of truth: the things it wants you to fear are actually just distractions to keep you from the awareness of your desire for God. Under the Spirit’s Guidance, miracles occur absolutely involuntarily; every person, every place, and every situation will be used for the healing of your mind.
The power of forgiveness is alive and ever-present! Those who have gone before us have paved the way. We simply need to keep on moving! Look closely and take responsibility for your state of mind. This is the way out of the personality-self.
Jobs and relationships are symbols Spirit can use for healing. When you give your life to Spirit, all aspects of your life are devoted to the Purpose of Awakening and every relationship is seen as a total commitment. Your light wants to shine through, and all symbols of this world are tools to be used for this Purpose!

Your only purpose here is to know yourself as the Son of God, and the Spirit will use everything in form for this purpose; even marriage.
As you begin working with the ideas of “A Course in Miracles,” fear may arise. It is only ego-thinking that causes upset. To attain a state of sustained happiness, you must free the mind of ego-thinking and become reliant only on Spirit.
