Perhaps you have heard the expression “it’s what it’s”? What does that expression mean exactly?
Before I understood the deeper meaning of this expression, I envisioned an emaciated yogi guru in the lotus position floating above the floor imperiously imparting wisdom that could take scholars multiple lifetimes to interpret. Seeing that how that 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 people are writing about here? In line with the Course in Miracles, IT is truth, specifically God’s truth. Why is 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. Multiple versions of human truth have result in an array of religions. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia defines religion as a “system of thought, feeling, and action that is shared with a group and that gives the members a thing of devotion.”
Who devised the system 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 go back to an ideal state to be acim lesson 1.There is no thought or action in the state to be, you simply are. What mustn’t be forgotten may be 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’s” could be rewritten to “God’s love is the sole truth and it’s absolute” and this truth knows no bounds and is timeless.
