A new Course Throughout Miracles
A Course in Miracles is really pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and much more spiritually advanced than every other piece of the world’s literature (past and present), that you’ve to really experience it to believe 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 an individual whole page. That’s not because A Course in Miracles is confusing – on the contrary its principles are remarkably simple – but rather because it is the nature of spiritual knowledge that those who are not willing to realize it, simply cannot understand it. As mentioned in the Bible, in the beginning of the book of John: “The light shineth in darkness, and darkness comprehended it not “.
Since I first became alert to the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I’ve enjoyed reading many wonderful spiritual works such as 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. None 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 great love deep within you – deeper than what you knew before acim. The long run begins to appear so bright for you and your loved ones. You’re feeling passion for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded. These experiences are very powerful and at times throw you off balance only a little, but it is worth every penny: A Course in Miracles introduces you to a love so peaceful, so strong and so universal – you will wonder how so lots of the world’s religions, whose aim is supposedly a similar 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 learn a kind, merciful and loving God, but is somewhat afraid to read the Course because of others’claims it is inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I’ve browse the gospels often 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 real carriers of Jesus’message, and the only real ones worthy of his blessings, while other will go to hell. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’true message: unconditional passion 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 a fruits that ripen in your life taste. When they taste bad, you can abandon A Course in Miracles. But when they taste as sweet as mine do, and the countless other true seekers who have found A Course in Miracles to be nothing less than the usual heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and may your heart always be abundantly full of peaceful, loving joy.
