Quotes from book, A Course In Miracles:
"I asked you earlier, 'Would
you be hostage to the ego or host to God?'" Let this question
be asked you by the Holy Spirit every time you make a decision. For
every decision you make does answer this, and invites sorrow or joy
"Call not upon the ego for
anything; it is only this that you need do. The Holy Spirit will, of
Himself, fill every mind that so makes room for Him."
"To the ego the goal is death, which is its end. But
to the Holy Spirit the goal is life, which has no end."
"The ego is an ally of time, but not a friend."
"You who believe that
sacrifice is love must learn that sacrifice is separation from love.
For sacrifice brings guilt as surely as love brings peace. Guilt is
the condition of sacrifice, as peace is the condition for the
awareness of your relationship with God."
"Leave room for Him, and you
will find yourself so filled with power that nothing will prevail
against your peace. And this will be the test by which you recognize
that you have understood."
"It is still up to you to
choose to join with truth or with illusion. But remember that to
choose one is to let the other go. Which one you choose you will endow
with beauty and reality, because the choice depends on which you
value more. The spark of beauty or the veil of ugliness, the real
world or the world of guilt and fear, truth or illusion, freedom or
slavery--it is all the same. For you can never choose except
between God and the ego. Thought systems are but true or false, and
all their attributes come simply from what they are. Only the
Thoughts of God are true. And all that follows from them comes from
what they are, and is as true as is the holy Source from Which they
"My holy brother, I would
enter into all your relationships, and step between you and your
fantasies. Let my relationship to you be real to you, and let me
bring reality to your perception of your brothers. They were not
created to enable you to hurt yourself through them. They were
created to create with you. This is the truth that I would interpose
between you and your goal of madness. Be not separate from me, and
let not the holy purpose of Atonement be lost to you in dreams of
vengeance. Relationships in which such dreams are cherished have
excluded me. Let me enter in the Name of God and bring you peace,
that you may offer peace to me."
"How long can it take to be
where God would have you? For you are where you have forever been
and will forever be. All that you have, you have forever. The
blessed instant reaches out to encompass time, as God extends
Himself to encompass you."
