A Course in Miracles is about remembering that we are Love, we came from Love, and that we will always be Love. In this shadow world, we have chosen to believe that we can lose love, have to look for it, and can we can lose love. True, this world appears to have a lot of evil in it and many people cannot remember the love that is inside each of us.
Our Source of Being, what some call God, is everywhere present. God is Love. This also means that Love is everywhere present. We sometimes think we have lost Love, but the Voice for God finds its way into our consciousness in many songs, including this one from Jason Mraz, “I’m Yours”:“But I won’t hesitate no more, no more. It cannot wait, I’m yours. Well, open up your mind and see like me. Open up your plans and damn you’re free. Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love. Listen to the music of the moment, people, dance and sing: We’re just one big family”.
Isn’t that cool? One big family. Look into your heart and you’ll find love. Open up your mind. I’m yours. It couldn’t be much more clear!
Many people like to personalize God, which cannot be done. It limits the un-limitable. Actually God is more than personality, in ways we can only imagine. God’s experience of us is only beauty and love, in this Mraz tune, “I Won’t Give Up”:
“I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are.
How old is your soul?
I won’t give up on us,
Even if the skies get rough.
I’m giving you all my love.
I’m still looking up
And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating,
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find…”
Jason and many other singers talk about Love and the experience of Love. It cannot be taught, but the music helps us to remember the Law of Love that we are a part of. We are all expressing love to others or we are calling for love in one way or another. Course teachers like Gary Renard and Marianne Williamson show us the way to return to the awareness of permanent love within.
Right now, the Voice of Ego is screaming and spreading fear in the news media, politicians seem to be attacking each other, and people are choosing up sides, in perfect separation.
Jesus, in the New Testament asked us to give to the poor and follow him. The Course is very similar, Love those you meet and follow the guidance you are given in quiet meditation. In any case, forgive anyone if you are upset, even those who would take money from you under the guise of giving some of it to others. Forgive them – they have forgotten that we are ALL love. We need to love all people, rich or poor, right or left. To do otherwise is to make the world of physical perception real and permanent, worth fighting and killing for and it’s not. We are just passing through on the journey without distance.
Thank you, Jason Mraz, for reminding us that only Love is real. If you want to get the whole songs for your collection, don’t forget iTunes.
