The introduction to A Course in Miracles states "The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.
This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.

Alan, although your post was written over 7 years ago, it caught my attention. A deeply loaded statement, worthy to unpack. If what you say is true, love is a spirit that commands attention, simply because it occupies a presence, a place unseen but felt with the soul of a man. An intelligent way to say we, in our human condition, cannot fully comprehend the depth to which it appears. We feel the effects of love when we choose to love. Fear should not be minimized as an unreal entity. Fear is a a natural response to a real or imagined threat. We are vulnerableto invite fear over for dinner or perhaps to move in when we experience uncertainty. The greatest anguish the mind can know is the not knowing. Reverse the fear by replacing it with a certainty can lead to the miracle our hearts desperatelyseek. Miracles by the definition are supernatural events and forces that arrive in times of tragedy or calamity that reverse undesired outcomes (to say it lightly). Miracles are attributed to God, In His divine wisdom, at the request from a believer or nonbeliever (hard to differentiate) but always at the core of great sorrow. Is fear more than love connected to sadness? We could consider the passion of the Christ. He took a hard core look at the world and suffered because of his great love for the world. He was so afraid of the outcome, he sweat blood. His life was full of suffering... friends sold him for a few bucks (30 pc of silver... not even top dollar in those days). Your post really made me stop and think.
