Perhaps you have heard the expression “it’s what it is”? What does that expression mean exactly?
Before I understood the deeper meaning of the expression, I envisioned an emaciated yogi guru in the lotus position floating above the floor imperiously imparting wisdom that could take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret que es un curso de milagros. Since how this really is my last life on earth and the lotus position would put me in traction, I knew that consulting the Course In Miracles would help me clarify its meaning.
What’s the IT that individuals are authoring here? In line with the Course in Miracles, IT is truth, specifically God’s truth. How come it important to emphasize that it’s God’s truth? Because God’s truth is not open to interpretations whereas a human’s truth is. Multiple versions of human truth have lead to many religions. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia defines religion as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that is shared with a group and that offers the members a subject of devotion.”
Who devised the device of thought? On whose feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? In line with the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal is to return to a perfect state of being. There is no thought or action in their state of being, you just are. What mustn’t be forgotten could be the underlying thread of all religions: God is creator, God is love and we are all perfect and infinite children of God.
