1. This is a course in miracles. 2. It is a required course. 3. Only the time you take is voluntary. 5. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. 5 It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. 6 The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. 7 It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. 8 The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.
2.This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
4 Herein lies the peace of God.
