A Course in Miracles is indeed pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and so much more spiritually advanced than some other piece of the world’s literature (past and present), that you have to truly experience it to think it. But those whose minds are too attached to worldly thoughts, and lack the underlying thirst for true spiritual knowledge that is necessary for its understanding, will likely 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 instead because it’s the nature of spiritual knowledge that those who are not willing to realize it, simply cannot understand it. As previously 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 conscious of the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I have enjoyed reading many wonderful spiritual works just like 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. 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 feel conscious of a splendid love deep within you – deeper than whatever you knew before. The long run begins to appear so bright for you and your loved ones. You feel 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’s worth every penny: A Course in Miracles introduces one to a love so peaceful, spotify a course in miracles 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 want 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 as a result of others’claims that it’s inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I have browse the gospels often and I assure you a Course in Miracles is completely consistent 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 will go to hell. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’true message: unconditional love for *all people*. While he was on the planet, Jesus believed to judge a tree by its fruit. So give it a try and see the way the fruits that ripen in your lifetime taste. If they taste bad, you can abandon A Course in Miracles. But when they taste as sweet as mine do, and the millions of 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 full of peaceful, loving joy.
