Intro to Part I
God did not create a meaningless world.
“Complexity is not of God. ²How could it be, when all He knows is One? ³He knows of one creation, one reality, one truth and but one Son. ⁴Nothing conflicts with oneness.” (ACIM, T-26.III.1:1-4)
The world you see is complex and full of conflict. The ego is “comfortable” with the world. As you identify with the ego, you embrace this conflict.
You may find it difficult to accept conflict as “comfortable” to you; you do not notice how often you define your “self” by what you are against. Think of complexity as swaddling that you have become comfortable with, even though it is also constraining and confining. This swaddling is, of course, a barrier.
Because of your identification with the ego, your tolerance of Oneness has limits.
“The mind that taught itself to think specifically can no longer grasp abstraction in the sense that it is all-encompassing.” (ACIM, W-161.4:7)
If Oneness is true, there can be no barriers, only a “space” that is perfect and open yet full; complete. Learning to tolerate the presence of this “open space” will enable the choice to identify with your Real self.
Practice is required. There may be discomfort in this process and this is understandable.
In this, you are not alone.
The purpose of this blog is to assist you with deepening into A Course In Miracles by clarifying the Course concept of Oneness.
