The Course Within Miracles

By , September 10, 2020 8:00 am

A Course in Miracles is indeed pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and so much more spiritually advanced than every other little bit of the world’s literature (past and present), that you have 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’s essential for its understanding, will more than likely not comprehend an individual whole page. That is not because A Course in Miracles is confusing – on the contrary its principles are remarkably simple – but instead because it is the nature of spiritual knowledge that those who are not prepared to understand it, just 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 alert to the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I have enjoyed reading many wonderful spiritual works just like the Bible (my favorite parts would be the Sermon on the Mount and Psalms), the Bhagavad-Gita, the Upanishads, the Koran and the poetry of Kabir and Rumi. Not one of them come close to the greatness of a Course in Miracles. Reading it having an open mind and heart, your fears and troubles wash away. You become alert to a wonderful 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’re feeling love for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded. These experiences are extremely powerful and sometimes throw you off balance a little, but it is worthwhile: A Course in Miracles introduces one to a love so peaceful, so strong and so universal – you’ll wonder how so lots of the world’s religions, whose aim is supposedly the same experience, got so off track.

I would like to say here to any Christian who feels that his church’s teachings don’t truly satisfy his thirst to understand a type, merciful and loving God, but is somewhat afraid to read the Course as a result of others’claims that it is inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I have browse the gospels often and I assure you a Course in Miracles is totally 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 real carriers of Jesus’message, and the only real ones worth his blessings, while all other will go to hell acim. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’true message: unconditional love for *all people*. While he was on the planet, Jesus thought to judge a tree by its fruit. So give it a take to 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 countless other true seekers who have found A Course in Miracles to be nothing less when compared to a heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and may your heart continually be abundantly full of peaceful, loving joy.
