A Course in Miracles is indeed pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and so much more spiritually advanced than any other bit of the world’s literature (past and present), that you’ve to actually experience it to trust it. But those whose minds are too attached with worldly thoughts, and lack the underlying thirst for true spiritual knowledge that is necessary for its understanding, will probably not comprehend a single whole page. That is not because A Course in Miracles is confusing – on the contrary its principles are remarkably simple – but rather because it’s the character of spiritual knowledge that those people who are not ready to understand it, simply cannot understand it. As stated in the Bible, at the beginning of the book of John: “The light shineth in darkness, and darkness comprehended it not “.
Ever since I first became aware of the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I have enjoyed reading many wonderful spiritual works just like the Bible (my favorite parts are the Sermon on the Mount and Psalms), the Bhagavad-Gita, the Upanishads, the Koran and the poetry of Kabir and Rumi. None of them come near to the greatness of a Course in Miracles. Reading it with an open mind and heart, your fears and troubles wash away. You feel aware of a splendid love deep within you – deeper than what you knew before. The long run begins to look so bright for you and your loved ones. You are feeling love for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded. These experiences are very powerful and sometimes throw you off balance only a little, but it’s worth every penny: A Course in Miracles introduces you to a love so peaceful, so strong and so universal – you’ll wonder how so many of the world’s religions, whose aim is supposedly an identical experience, got so off track.
I wish to say here to any Christian who feels that his church’s teachings do not truly satisfy his thirst to learn a form, merciful and loving God, spotify a course in miracles but is somewhat afraid to see the Course because of others claims it is inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I have read the gospels many times and I assure you that a Course in Miracles is wholly in line with Jesus’teachings while he was on earth. Don’t fear the fanatical defenders of exclusionist dogma – these poor people think themselves to be the only carriers of Jesus’message, and the only ones worth his blessings, while all the will go to hell. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’true message: unconditional love for *all people*. While he was on earth, Jesus thought to judge a tree by its fruit. So give it a decide to try and see how the fruits that ripen in your life taste. If they taste bad, you can abandon A Course in Miracles. But if they taste as sweet as mine do, and the an incredible number of other true seekers who are finding A Course in Miracles to be nothing less than the usual heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and may your heart often be abundantly full of peaceful, loving joy.Read More
