    1. Miracles are everyone's right, but purification is necessary first.

      Fear not the images related to this word your memories have brought. Recall what author said in introduction: removing blocks to love is Course's one concern.

      You're not in need of adding content to your mind. A sculptor's masterpiece is ready only when everything unnecessary is removed. Let all illusions be dispelled off you and there is nothing left but love.

      Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. T-16.4.6

      You are only love, but when you deny this, you make what you are something you must learn to remember. T-6.3.2

      Healing is not creating; it is reparation. T-5.2.1

      The miracle does nothing. All it does is to undo ... It does not add, but merely takes away. T-28.1.1

      The Atonement does not make holy. You were created holy. It merely brings unholiness to holiness; or what you made to what you are. Bringing illusion to truth, or the ego to God, is the Holy Spirit's only function. T-14.9.1

      All your past except its beauty is gone, and nothing is left but a blessing. T-5.4.8

    1. there the advocate cannot prejudge the case lest he threaten both jus-tice and his own livelihood.

      There is danger afoot.

      I remember when I used to think that achieving equality under the law was like playing Jenga. Legal precedents were things that were stacked--one on top of another--like a tower of Jenga blocks, intricately connected. To fight for equality was to strategically go after specific precedents (blocks) that would eventually cause the tower to fall and allow for new, pro-equality precedents to be made (stacked), creating a new tower. But then I realized that Jenga can't be played if the initial blocks aren't placed on top of something else -- a particular surface/foundation -- and the same goes for legal precedents. There's always something lurking below (or beyond). We are still prejudging when it comes to the law -- but not in a way that works with or for everyone.

    1. When English computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee laid the foundation for the web in the late 80s, he created a system akin to Lego blocks. Pieces could easily be taken apart and put back together again. This tactile nature is the essence of the web, and it dovetails with hands-on learning. As teachers adopt web literacy into their curriculum, it’s best for students to actively practice what they intend to perfect, like coding chops, web page building and more.
