The idea of remembering eternity may seem a little strange to you, but surely not any stranger than some of the ideas you have entertained i.e that you can die, that you are alone in the universe, that time actually passes.
While you think you live in time you have a choice and choose you must because you are getting the results of your choosing. A Course In Miracles is completely uncompromising in the light of what it has to offer you. That IS your salvation from death to Life. You are not trapped in space time, for where the eternal is, IS where you are.
"Only if you ACCEPT the Fatherhood of God will you have anything, because His Fatherhood GAVE you everything. That is why to deny Him IS to deny yourself. Arrogance is the denial of love, because love shares and arrogance withholds. As long as both appear to you to be desirable, the concept of choice, which is not of God, will remain with you. While this is not true in Eternity, it IS true in time, so that, while time lasts in YOUR minds, there WILL be choices. Time itself WAS your choice. If you would remember Eternity, you must learn to look on only the Eternal. If you allow yourselves to become preoccupied with the temporal, you are LIVING IN TIME. As always, your choice is determined by what you value. Time and Eternity cannot both be real, because they contradict each other. If you will accept only what is timeless as real, you will begin to understand Eternity, and make it yours." ACIM ~Chapter 19
