Have you ever heard the expression “it’s what it’s”? 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 ground imperiously imparting wisdom that will take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret. Seeing that how this really is my last life on the planet and the lotus position would put me in traction, I knew that consulting the Course In Miracles would help me clarify its meaning.
What’s the IT that we are writing about here? In line with the Course in Miracles, IT is truth, specifically God’s truth. Exactly why is it vital that you emphasize that it’s God’s truth? Because God’s the fact is not ready to accept interpretations whereas a human’s truth is. Multiple versions of human truth have lead to a myriad of religions. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia defines religion as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that is shared by way of a group and that provides the members a subject of devotion.”
Who devised the device of thought? On whose feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? In line with the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal is to come back to a perfect state to be acim lesson 1.There is no thought or action in their state to be, you just are. What must not be forgotten may be the underlying thread of most religions: God is creator, God is love and we are all perfect and infinite children of God.
Put another way, “it’s what it’s” may be rewritten to “God’s love is the only real truth and it’s absolute” and this truth knows no bounds and is timeless.
