“THE PATH OF PURPOSE” will be the topic for A Course in Miracles class
Thursday October 23, 7 p.m. at The Church Within.
No matter what is happening to us at any moment, no matter how real, difficult, or painful it seems or how powerless we feel, our minds are always free to choose a different purpose for what is occurring.
“Only the mind can set a purpose, and only the mind can see the means for its accomplishment, and justify its use. .The test of everything on earth is simply this; “What is it for?” 2 The answer makes it what it is for you. It has no meaning of itself, yet you can give reality to it, according to the purpose that you serve.” [ACIM]
In a workshop titled “Leading Lives of Quiet Desperation”, Kenneth Wapnick stated:
“With this Course, we are being trained to always think purpose..
It doesn’t matter why I got a flat tire or got a headache or why a loved one has cancer or I have cancer. It doesn’t matter. What matters is the purpose it will serve. Will it root me in the dream thereby reinforcing the idea that the world is a prison and my body is a prison, or will it awaken me from the dream by . . being a classroom that teaches me that I am a mind and not a body?”
