A Course in Miracles is so pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and much more spiritually advanced than any other little bit of the world’s literature (past and present), that you have to really 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 required for its understanding, will likely not comprehend a single whole page. That’s not because A Course in Miracles is confusing – on the contrary its principles are remarkably simple – but instead because it is the type of spiritual knowledge that those who find themselves not ready to realize it, just cannot understand it. As mentioned in the Bible, at the start of the book of John: “The light shineth in darkness, and darkness comprehended it not “.
From the time I first became alert to the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I’ve 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. Do not require come near 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 splendid love deep within you – deeper than anything you knew before. The near future begins to appear so bright for you personally and your loved ones. You are feeling passion for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded spotify acim. These experiences are very powerful and at times throw you off balance only a little, but it is worth it: 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 a similar experience, got so off track.
I wish to say here to any Christian who feels that his church’s teachings don’t truly satisfy his thirst to learn a form, 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’ve browse the gospels often times and I assure you a Course in Miracles is completely in keeping 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 worthy of his blessings, while all other will go to hell. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’true message: unconditional passion 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. When 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 than the usual heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and may your heart often be abundantly filled with peaceful, loving joy.
