Truth And Fear

The association of truth and fear, which would be highly artificial at most, is particularly inappropriate in the minds of those who do not know what truth is. All this could mean is that you are arbitrarily associating something beyond your awareness with something you do not want. It is evident, then, that you are judging  something of which you are totally unaware. You have set up this strange situation so that it is impossible to escape from it without a guide who does know what your reality is. The purpose of this guide is to merely remind you. – A Course In Miracles

Alrighty then. Let’s break this passage down, analyze it to death, and see how much of it applies to me and you.

  • The association of truth and fear, which would be highly artificial at most, is particularly inappropriate in the minds of those who do not know what truth is : this statement applies directly to me. I have no clue of what (the) truth is. (you too?)
  • You are arbitrarily associating something beyond your awareness with something you do not want: I do associate things beyond my awareness with fear – which is something I don’t want. (you too?)
  • You are judging  something of which you are totally unaware: Since I like to make stuff up, I’m constantly judging stuff I’m not aware of. (you too?)
  • You have set up this strange situation so that it is impossible to escape from it without a guide who does know what your reality is: Ok, I’ll buy into that. But who’s the freakin’ guide? (you wanna know too?)

The purported guide is supposedly: Jesus Christ as channeled through the “A Course In Miracles” author duo. There’s a lot to like in this work but, because I’m not a big fan of organized religion, I’m having a tough time reading more than one or two pages at a time.
