A Course in Miracles - Unconditional Love
This is a reading from A Course in Miracles. This books, if you have not heard of it, teaches how to undo the blocks of Fear; that block our awareness of Love. To undo the illusions of separation from one another and our creator. I hope you enjoy.

Re: A Course in Miracles - Unconditional Love
Here is an inspiring part of lesson 107 from ACIM -

Lesson 107 - Truth will correct the errors in my mind

Can you imagine what a state of mind without illusions is? How it would feel? Try to remember when there was a time,–perhaps a minute, maybe even less–when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe. Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity. Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times, and then be multiplied another hundred more.

And now you have a hint, not more than just the faintest intimation of the state your mind will rest in when the truth has come. Without illusions there could be no fear, no doubt and no attack. When truth has come all pain is over, for there is no room for transitory thoughts and dead ideas to linger in your mind. Truth occupies your mind completely, liberating you from all beliefs in the ephemeral. They have no place because the truth has come, and they are nowhere. They can not be found, for truth is everywhere forever, now.

Boy have we all become so skeptical nowadays. I get it. There is enough deceptions and dishonesty in the world to go around. I just wouldn't call anything bullshit without looking at something with an open mind. I mean its obvious, based on our unhappiness in the world, that we are doing something "wrong," or that which doesn't serve us. Take a closer look at this material. It has helped me find much more peace within.

A Course in Miracles has nothing to do with the spirit world, pixies, or egyptian gods. It is meant to change the way we look at the world with the goal of bringing more peace into life.

But I get it, some people just like to post things that they feel are important.

A Course in Miracles describes itself as a self-study course that requires no groups and no teachers. There may be unscrupulous people who try to take advantage of such a simple message. But a little discernment fixes that.

I have studied A Course in Miracles for about three years now. It is beautifully written and it truly works as a self therapy method. It takes quite a lot of effort though. It's the most incredible book I have ever read. It's amazing!

A Course in Miracles is not a magic system. Where are you getting your information from?

It presents a philosophy that's very buddhist in nature, even though the language it uses is christian. Do you also believe that buddhism is a magic system?

It does sound like a slick slogan. That's why the Course itself never proposes using lines like that one on a site like this, because ultimately they are meaningless.

After studying the Course for a while a statement like that quote takes on a richer and deeper meaning. I highly recommend the Course if you enjoy thinking out of the box.

Re: A Course in Miracles - Unconditional Love
Helping my girlfriend with her piece at an art show I was approached by a man who recommended this book to me. I haven't read it yet, but it lies at the heart of a spiritual dilemma I have been praying on for over a year.

To fear or not to fear?

For the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

Yet fear is clearly what prevents Peter from walking on water.

Have you applied the litmus test of the New Testament to the ideas put forth in A Course in Miracles?

Also, I'm concerned by the claim that the book is influenced by the occult. Where are people getting these claims?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 51485900


Course in Miracles: a CIA exercise in mind control?

So could the book be part of some mind control experiment? Author and Yogi Joel Kramer states
that the Course could be considered a classic authoritarian example of programming thought to
change beliefs. Long time teacher of the Course, Hugh Prather, notes that the Course students
often become, "far more separate and egocentric", with many ultimately, "[losing] the ability to
carry on a simple conversation". He admits that he and his wife Gayle, "had ended up less flexible,
less forgiving, and less generous than we were when we first started our path!"
Furthermore, the book starts off as a psychic channelling session and this is an area that the CIA
was involved with in the 1970s. So not only was Thetford an MK-ULTRA employee, the book
itself, and the method in which it is said to have come about, also fits a CIA area of interest.

And much more about this to be found online. I was one who studied this in the 90s. There was always something hard to stomach about it. Especially the assertion that she was channeling Jesus Christ.

 Quoting: sees


Following the same logic, Jesus is evil because those who wrapped themselves up in his teachings have done evil things.

You can't judge a philosophy based on how people misinterpret it.

And I can assure you, having studied the Course for many years, that I am more aware of what goes on around me (and distrustful of the govt) than most people around me. But I do so with a clear realization of how my moment-by-moment thoughts and actions contribute to imprisoning my own mind. And then using the power of my awareness to break the chains. This a realization that has been helped along by the Course, not slowed by it.

Hello friend,

I believe that recognizing our fear of God is indeed the beginning of wisdom. But why would a loving God want to be feared?

If the New testament were written by Christ then I'd use it as a litmus test. But it was written by men who had ulterior motives. For example, the Gospels say that when Christ was in the garden experiencing fear of his pending arrest and persecution, that his disiples were asleep. If they were asleep then who wrote this part of the Gospel?
