Truth will correct all errors in my mind.
What can correct illusions but the truth? And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered errors disappear. They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because, without belief, they have no life. And so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.
Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel? Try to remember when there was a time,–perhaps a minute, maybe even less–when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe. Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity. Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times, and then be multiplied another hundred more.
A Course In Miracles
Christ Consciousness and Humanity
When you remember your true nature, and begin to draw identity from the totality of your being, then it could be stated with all validity that I am an element of your own consciousness. However, at that point, you will no longer perceive me as you do now. When you have awakened to the reality of your true being, you will perceive me and all my species as being inside yourself. Until then, you perceive me as being outside yourself.
There is but the filmiest of screens between your pre- sent condition and your true nature. It is our mission to assist you in bridging this gap, to awaken you from sleep, to bring you to the fulfillment of your destiny.

Julia Child’s Kitchen
Oh, what a relief it is to see clutter. If there’s one lesson we can learn about interior design from Julia Child, it’s that a kitchen should be lived in, not sterile and polished like a showroom. A new book, In Julia’s Kitchen: Practical and Convivial Kitchen Design Inspired by Julia Child, includes some never-before-seen photos from inside the legendary chef’s home court in Cambridge, MA, where she lived from 1961-2001. Let’s take a look. Images from In Julia’s Kitchen: Practical and Convivial Kitchen Design Inspired by Julia Child by Pamela Heyne and Jim Scherer published by ForeEdge, an imprint of University Press of New England.

The American Presidency
Observations on the Vice Presidential debate last night from The New Yorker.
The first thirty minutes sounded and felt like fingernails on a chalkboard for me and I bailed. Unanswered questions and interruptions . . .
I woke up this morning thinking I needed to spend more time with the likes of Mark Twain and Will Rogers.
“There is only one redeeming thing about this whole election. It will be over at sundown, and let everybody pray that it’s not a tie, for we couldn’t go through with this thing again.” Will Rogers
