Perhaps you have heard the expression “it’s what it’s”? What does that expression mean exactly?
Before I understood the deeper meaning of the expression, I envisioned an emaciated yogi guru in the lotus position floating above the ground imperiously imparting wisdom that would take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret. Since how this 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 currently talking about here? Based on the Course in Miracles, IT is truth, specifically God’s truth. Exactly why is it important to a course in miracles podcast emphasize that it’s God’s truth? Because God’s truth is not open to 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 with a group and that provides the members an object of devotion.”
Who devised the machine of thought? On whose feelings are these thoughts based? Are actions really necessary? Based on the Course In Miracles, God just is and our ultimate goal is to go back to an ideal state of being. There’s no thought or action in their state of being, you just are. What mustn’t be forgotten could be the underlying thread of all 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.
