A good Course During Miracles
A Course in Miracles is so pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and much more spiritually advanced than some other piece of the world’s literature (past and present), that you’ve to truly experience it to trust it. But those whose minds are too attached to worldly thoughts, and lack the underlying thirst for true spiritual knowledge that is required for its understanding, will likely not comprehend just one 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 type of spiritual knowledge that those who are not ready to understand it, simply cannot understand it. As stated in the Bible, at the start of the book of John: “The light shineth in darkness, and darkness comprehended it not “.
Ever since I first became conscious of the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I have enjoyed reading many wonderful spiritual works such as the Bible (my favorite parts will 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 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 conscious of a great love deep within you – deeper than whatever you knew before. The near future begins to appear so bright for you and your loved ones. You are feeling passion for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded. These experiences are very powerful and sometimes throw you off balance a little, but it is worthwhile: A Course in Miracles introduces you to a love so peaceful, so strong and so universal – you will wonder how so most of the world’s religions, whose aim is supposedly an identical 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 kind, merciful and loving God, but is somewhat afraid to see the Course as a result of others’claims that it’s inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I have read the gospels many times and I assure you 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 all other should go to hell acim. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’true message: unconditional passion for *all people*. While he was on the planet, Jesus said to judge a tree by its fruit. So give it a take to and see how a fruits that ripen in your lifetime taste. Should they taste bad, you are able to 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 than the usual heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and may your heart continually be abundantly filled with peaceful, loving joy.
