“The way to God is through forgiveness here. There is no other way…
God is our goal; forgiveness is the means by which our minds return to Him at last.”
The Illuminate Mind Foundation aims to be a vital resource for the enlightenment of mind through the extraordinary gift to all mankind that is A Course in Miracles. It is a continuing forum for the joyful re-discovery that you are now and have always been a complete, continuous and whole part of all the Love, Light and Joy of Eternal Life.
The divine mind-science of A Course in Miracles presents a curriculum for the complete transformation of identity, through ‘true forgiveness’, to the discovery of perfection and holiness as the original nature of mind in God. This enlightened self-realization we recognize as the singular eternal solution to the existential problem of false separation from God and the condition of suffering inherent in the world.
“You are as God created you. There is nothing else to learn, nothing else to know, and nothing else that has any value. For in this one idea is everyone set free along with you.”
Now is the time!- This is an invitation to join in the adventure of awakening, to step into the great transition to Truth, to take the “journey without distance” from the limited, fearful condition of the human ego-identity, to the freedom of recognizing the eternal Self as perfect, healed and whole in the transcendental light of Christ; the illuminate mind “that knows its Source, its Self, its Holiness.“
- “Forgiveness sweeps away distortions, and opens the hidden altar to the truth. Its lilies shine into the mind, and call it to return and look within, to find what it has vainly sought without. For here, and only here, is peace of mind restored, for this the dwelling place of God Himself.”
The posts published below are expressions of Charity as a way of living in this world. Charity is an act of faith amongst equals that demonstrates the continuing miracle of the forgiving mind; our love for one another, our need to learn to “give all to all” and to be “truly helpful” in all ways at all times and to all.
