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."
Escape from insanity
illusions and lies
"Yet all these things, however real they may seem, are but illusions".
~ From A Course in Miracles.
The message from the book, Escape from Insanity, Illusions and Lies is from A Course in Miracles (ACIM) and gives a thought-provoking perspective. As readers allow themselves to indulge in a journey of self-discovery, they become increasingly aware of the source of their emotional distress – a suffering that is the result of forgetting they are a spiritual being who live in a world of illusions.
When we come to realize that the cause of our distress is the result of a belief system rooted in fear, it gives rise to the illusions of lack, scarcity, and limitations. This becomes the reality in which we live, a reality of fear from which there appears to be no escape. This book helps us learn to recognize the fearful elements of the belief system that imprisons us. Ed helps you lay the groundwork for an escape route to sanity, provided in ACIM, designed to assist you in your journey and gain insight into the creative power of your true self.
This longed-for escape route will begin the healing process by achieving an awareness of our true spiritual nature. Using the new beginnings of an awareness of spiritual love to make conscious choices, we can then escape the insanity, illusions and lies, to celebrate a new freedom where love will set us free. These conscious choices to immerse ourselves in the miracle of love’s calling will not only help us have the freedom to create the life we were born to have, love, and live, but helps us transform our world when we all come together.
