Perhaps you have heard the expression “it is what it is”? What does that expression mean exactly?
Before I understood the deeper meaning of this expression, I envisioned an emaciated yogi guru in the lotus position floating above the bottom imperiously imparting wisdom that could take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret. Seeing as how this is my last life on the planet and the lotus position would put me in traction, I knew that consulting the Course In Miracles would help me clarify its meaning.
What is the IT that people are authoring here? According to the Course in Miracles, IT is truth, specifically God’s truth. Why is it vital that you emphasize that it’s God’s truth? Because God’s the fact is not open to interpretations whereas a human’s truth is un curso de milagros online. Multiple versions of human truth have cause a myriad of religions. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia defines religion as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that’s shared with a group and that provides the members an item of devotion.”
Who devised the machine of thought? On whose feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? According to the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal is to go back to a great state of being. There is no thought or action in their state to be, you simply are. What must not be forgotten is the underlying thread of religions: God is creator, God is love and we’re all perfect and infinite children of God.
