Course in Miracles — It is What It is


Have you ever heard the expression “it is what it is”? What does that expression mean exactly?

Before I understood the deeper meaning of this expression, I imagined an emaciated yogi master in the lotus position sailing above the bottom imperiously imparting wisdom that would take scholars multiple lifetimes to think of. Since how this is my last life on earth and the lotus position would put me in grip, I knew that consulting the Course In Miracles would help me clarify its meaning.

What is the IT that we are writing about here? According to the Course in Miracles, It is truth, specifically God’s truth. Why is it important to emphasize that it’s God’s truth? Because God’s truth is not open to interpretations whereas a human’s truth is. Multiple versions of human truth have lead to a myriad of beliefs. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia becomes faith as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that is shared by a group and that provides the members an object of devotion. inch

Who developed the machine of thought? On whoever feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? According to the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal is to come back to a perfect state of being. There is no thought or action in the state of being, you just are  un curso de milagros. What ought not to be forgotten is the underlying place of all beliefs: God is creator, God is love and we are all perfect and boundless children of God.

Put another way, “it is what it is” can be rewritten to “God’s love is the only truth and it is absolute” and this truth knows no bounds and is timeless.
