• Lesson 14 - A Course in Miracles?

    I'm having trouble wrapping my head around this one. The lesson is: God did not create a meaningless world. Ok.. I get that part. But the thought for the day : 'God did not create the war in Afghanistan, that car wreck, that tsunami etc, therefore it is not real' is giving me a headache. Clearly the war, the car wreck and the tsunami... show more
    I'm having trouble wrapping my head around this one. The lesson is: God did not create a meaningless world. Ok.. I get that part. But the thought for the day : 'God did not create the war in Afghanistan, that car wreck, that tsunami etc, therefore it is not real' is giving me a headache. Clearly the war, the car wreck and the tsunami happened, therefore how is it that they are not real? Real people die, get injured, get swept away, so how am I supposed to believe that this is not real?? I don't get it.... is there anyone out there who has grasped this lesson that can help me? I've been stuck on it for four days now. Thank you in advance.
