A COURSE IN MIRACLES

 

Opposites:

In reality, there are no opposites. In the split mind, there is an opposite for everything.

 

ACIM Study Notes - Opposites

 

If you really think about these statements, do you REALLY believe it is truth that....

  • Joy can not be appreciated without sorrow
  • Health can not be appreciated without sickness
  • Abundance can not be appreciated without scarcity
  • Warmth can not be appreciated without cold
  • To successfully oppress someone is victory
  • Love can not be appreciated without pain
  • Peace can not be appreciated without war

 

I used to believe these things, but I believed them without really thinking about them. Now I know I can be grateful for love, joy, health, peace, comfort, safety and abundance. I will it for myself, and for everyone else. And when everyone enjoys all of these things, they will increase and expand. Of course, the ego will have ceased to exist, but what a small price to pay!
