Have you ever heard the expression “it’s what it is”? What does that expression mean exactly?
Before I understood the deeper meaning with this expression, I envisioned an emaciated yogi guru in the lotus position floating above the floor imperiously imparting wisdom that would take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret. Seeing as how this really is my last life in the world and the lotus position would put me in traction, I knew that consulting the Course In Miracles would help me clarify its meaning.
What is the IT that people are authoring here? According to the Course in Miracles, IT is truth, specifically God’s truth. How come it very important to emphasize that it’s God’s truth? Because God’s truth is not ready to accept interpretations whereas a human’s truth is david hoffmeister mp3. Multiple versions of human truth have result in many religions. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia defines religion as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that’s shared by a group and that offers the members an item of devotion.”
Who devised the system of thought? On whose feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? According to the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal is to go back to an ideal state of being. There is no thought or action in the state to be, you merely are. What mustn’t be forgotten is the underlying thread of religions: God is creator, God is love and we’re all perfect and infinite children of God.
Put another way, “it’s what it is” may be rewritten to “God’s love is the only truth and it’s absolute” and this truth knows no bounds and is timeless.
