Perhaps you have heard the expression “it’s what it is”? What does that expression mean exactly?
Before I understood the deeper meaning with this expression, I envisioned an emaciated yogi guru in the lotus position floating above the ground imperiously imparting wisdom that could take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret. Since how that is my last life on the planet and the lotus position would put me in traction, I knew that consulting the Course In Miracles would help me clarify its meaning.
What is the IT that individuals are currently talking about here? According to the Course in Miracles, IT is truth, specifically God’s truth. Exactly why is it important to emphasize that it’s God’s truth? Because God’s truth is not available to interpretations whereas a human’s truth is curso de milagros. Multiple versions of human truth have cause an array of religions. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia defines religion as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that is shared with a group and that offers the members a thing of devotion.”
Who devised the machine of thought? On whose feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? According to the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal is to go back to an ideal state of being. There is no thought or action in their state of being, you only are. What mustn’t be forgotten is the underlying thread of all religions: God is creator, God is love and we are all perfect and infinite children of God.
