I’ve put together a list of my favorite quotes from A Course in Miracles, they serve as great reminders of who we are and who are not as well as how to get back to our True Selves.

From the Introduction of A Course in Miracles:

This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. 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.

In-2. This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:

2 Nothing real can be threatened.
3 Nothing unreal exists.

4 Herein lies the peace of God.


  1. “To take offense is to give offense.”
  2. “In quietness are all things answered,”
  3. “Prayer is a way of asking for something. It is the medium of miracles. But the only meaningful prayer is for forgiveness, because those who have been forgiven have everything.”
  4. “What you think you are is a belief to be undone.”
  5. “Love holds no grievances.”
  6. “Prayer is the medium of miracles. It is a means of communication of the created with the Creator. Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed.”
  7. “Rest does not come from sleeping but from waking.”
  8. “When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you”
  9. “Peace is stronger than war because it heals.”
  10. “Miracles enable you to heal the sick and raise the dead because you made sickness and death yourself, and can therefore abolish both. You are a miracle, capable of creating in the likeness of your Creator. Everything else is your own nightmare, and does not exist. Only the creations of light are real.”
  11. “Remember that no one is where he is by accident, and chance plays no part in God’s plan.”
  12. “If you but knew the meaning of His Love, hope and despair would be impossible.”
  13. “There is no one who does not feel that he is imprisoned in some way. If this is the result of his own free will he must regard his will as not free, or the circular reasoning in this position would be quite apparent. Free will must lead to freedom.”
  14. “If you attack error in another, you will hurt yourself.”
  15. “An untrained mind can accomplish nothing. It is the purpose of these exercises to train the mind to think along the lines which the course sets forth.”
  16. “Look up and see His Word among the stars, where He has set your Name along with His. Look up and find your certain destiny the world would hide but God would have you see. C-ep.4. Let us wait here in silence, and kneel”
  17. “God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.”
  18. “What you see reflects your thinking, and your thinking but reflects the choice of what you want to see.”
  19. “Let no defenses but your present trust direct the future, and this life becomes a meaningful encounter with the truth that only your defenses would conceal.”
  20. “Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.”
  21. “Illusions about yourself and the world are one.”
  22. “Those who are certain of the outcome, can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety.” 
  23. “All your past except its beauty is gone… and nothing is left but a blessing.” 
  24. “Mental health is inner peace.”
  25. “Every situation properly perceived, becomes an opportunity to heal.”
  26. “You have so little faith in yourself because you are unwilling to accept the fact that perfect love is in you, and so you seek without for what you cannot find within.”
  27. “Do you prefer that you be right or happy?”
  28. “If the mind can heal the body but the body can’t heal the mind then the mind must be stronger than the body.” 
  29. “Let me look on the world I see as the representation of my own state of mind.”
  30. “All healing is essentially the release from fear.”
  31. “There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost.”
  32. “Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.
  33. “The miracle comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant and is still.”
  34. “The Holy Spirit sees the world as a teaching device for bringing you home.”
  35. “Heaven is not a place or a condition. It is merely an awareness of perfect oneness.”
  36. “You need to hear the truth about yourself as frequently as possible, because your mind is so preoccupied with false self-images.”
  37. “Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” 
  38.  “There is no order of difficulty in miracles. One is not ‘harder’ or ‘bigger’ than another. They are all the same. All expressions of love are maximal.”
  39. “Rebirth is merely the dawning on your mind of what is already in it.” 
  40. “Enlightenment is but a recognition, not a change at all.”


Dear God,

I surrender to you my ways of thinking, I surrender any judgments and fear I have about myself or those around me. I ask that today You come into my heart and fill it with love, I ask that you come into my mind and offer peace and guidance. Help me let go of any behaviors that are of my ego and replace them with acts of love that create a chain reaction of miracles that heal myself and the world. Guide me God.


With love,

Derek Raymond Marmon
