And so Only One Love Is guides you into a present memory
of your Self. The use of Jesus’ words from A Course in Miracles
throughout much of “Dr. Rabbit’s” book adds
a depth of love and memory that helps to catalyze this experience. Since
A Course in Miracles is an invaluable focus and transformational
gift in my life personally, the treasure was that I found my own heart
and dedication even more impassioned to read and experience the Course’s
text and workbook lessons. I was inevitably filled with an even greater
richness of the experience of Christ’s love, and it is clearly out
of such love that all true Experience emanates. Only One Love
Is leads you, the reader, to this and graciously encourages you
to undergo your own discovery of the power of the Course, to fully embrace
and live the daily lessons of the Workbook, to read the text. The magnitude
of its offering is an unsurpassable gift; and so it is out of my own love
that I join in this invitation to you.
I believe it is important to mention as well, that
though reference is consistently made in this book to the Course, there
is most definitely a clear relevance for readers and students of Eastern
traditions. Having had a rather extensive experience with Eastern teachings
himself, the author fully incorporates Eastern concepts generally considered
useful on one’s ‘path to enlightenment.’ Eastern practices
of ‘Inquiry’, transcendence, surrender, etc. are looked at.
Their effectiveness and limitations are talked about. Most importantly,
I feel, it is made apparent how all is useful and integrated into a final
experience of forgiveness, healing and wholeness; remembrance of Self.
This, of course again, is the teaching of Jesus, and the vernacular is
inconsequential, for it is the experience that is universal and applies
to both East and West. The Eastern method of Inquiry finally is, in fact,
only another way of remembering one’s necessity for this same forgiveness.
And so finally, as well, all ends with a real experience of total inclusiveness
of everyone and every-thing as the Love that you are. Yet this really
is no different than saying that all ends in A Course in Miracles.
(from Foreword/ p. XIII-XIV)
I like this idea of three
days: Day 1 consisting of coming here,
Day 2 recognizing that I had enough
of this world, making the decision that “I don’t want
it anymore” and Day 3 leaving
this place of despondency and death in the resurrecting Light Experience
that there is no death, that the Son of God is free.
Truly it is not more than one single instant in time.
On Day One I had thought an entire world into
‘existence’ and searched my way through its maze
of objectivity and apparent separation.
On Day Two I gave up, after releasing
my defenses that had justified my apparent existence in the world I
saw. With a cry to release myself from what I came to know never could
have been, I surrendered to God. In this surrender, yet to
my surprise, and through the infinite Grace of an eternally loving God
Day Three was given me to be recognized as
the only “Day” Wherein I ever could exist; to live
as the Son of God Who shares with His Father the love of the universe.
This is the day of celebration, for the third day is the one of resurrection.
On the third day, I again knew what I always have known. Our mind is
re-aligned with the One Mind, God, our Source, and our only purpose
is clear and singular in simply Being That. A Voice echoed in my mind:
You are resurrected, you extend, you shine. In this eternal holy
Instant, you are the glory, the living holy Son of God Himself, Who
is eternally with His Father, indeed has truly never left His Home.
Holy Child of God, you are indeed and forever blessed. This is the eternal
moment in which you always ARE, in Truth. Simply, let it be so....
