This blogzine (an online magazine in a blog format) is an attempt to get myself to focus more on the path home and practice the Course. At the same time, I hope to share what I am learning and discovering with the seemingly separated aspects of the One of us.
I was once deeply involved in the new age movement and used to run a well-regarded online metaphysics magazine. One day, I suddenly found that it no longer made any sense to me. Nevertheless, I realize my trip down the ‘spiritual buffet line’ was also an essential phase before I could understand and embark on the unique spiritual path that is A Course in Miracles.
Unlike the often conflicting views offered by many spiritualities, A Course in Miracles is uncompromising on its principles of pure non-duality. The Course states in no uncertain terms that our life in this world is nothing but a dream. “This is an insane world, and do not underestimate the extent of its insanity” (T-14.I.2:6). The way out of the illusion, according to A Course in Miracles, is through forgiving, or giving up, the images we are dreaming, in order to return to Wholeness, and Oneness with each other and with our Source.
The shortest saying of J (aka Jesus or Jeshua), recorded by the Gospel of Thomas is, “Be Passersby.” It is the inspiration for the title of this blogzine and serves as a reminder to be a passerby in this illusory world.
From The Disappearance of the Universe pg 79:
The saying in the Gospel of Thomas, ‘Be passersby,’ is about not being mentally attached to things. It has nothing to do with physically giving up anything. If you believe that you have to give something up, then you are making it just as real as if you covet it.
Hope you will enjoy this site.
Be a passerby.
