The Real Alternative

Time to Teach

There is a choice that you have power to make when you have seen the real alternatives. Until that point is reached you have no choice, and you can but decide how you would choose the better to deceive yourself again. This course attempts to teach no more than that the power of decision cannot lie in choosing different forms of what is still the same illusion and the same mistake. All choices in the world depend on this; you choose between your brother and yourself, and you will gain as much as he will lose, and what you lose is what is given him. How utterly opposed to truth is this, when all the lesson's purpose is to teach that what your brother loses you have lost, and what he gains is what is given you.

How does a fundamental change and an actual escape from hell occur?


Presentation
Do you remember the moment in time, or the phases in your awakening when it became clear to you that you were in need of a real alternative and not just another substitute or signpost within the world?

What is the way appointed to you, now that you have seen and experienced the real alternative?
