When the world's offerings seem too good to be true, it probably is.
"What I’m about to reveal to you is the greatest illusion of all time. An illusion so captivating, so compelling, so believable that it seems real. So real that you believe it is real.
And once it becomes real for you it can ensnare you like an insect trapped in a spider’s web, you can see no way out and it becomes a prison, a prison from which there appears to be no escape. "
"Yet all these things, however real they may seem, are but illusions"
~ From A Course in Miracles.
Escape from Insanity, Illusions and Lies presents a thought provoking perspective of A Course in Miracles. The reader is taken on a journey of a lifetime, a journey of self discovery that begins with bringing to awareness the source of the emotional distress we experience, is the result of forgetting we are spiritual beings living in a world of illusions.
From this we learn to understand the journey's purpose by identifying the cause of our distress is the result of a belief system rooted in fear that gives rise to illusions of lack, scarcity and limitations. This becomes the reality we live from which there appears to be no escape. You're shown how to identify the belief system that imprison you. With that you learn how this journey is actually an escape. Ed lays out the pathway for escape revealed in the plan given us in the ACIM that moves you along in your escape. Through self discovery you become aware of the creative power that comes with being who you really are.
This plan, presented as an escape plan, takes you through an escape route to begin healing by expanding our consciousness to the awareness of our spiritual nature. Once you realize the creative power available to you to choose differently, you can create great things. By making different choices from an awareness of who you are exposes the insanity, illusions and lies for what they are and free us. We then have the freedom to create the life we were born to love and live it. With that, together we can transform our world.
