A Course in Miracles – Makeup foundation Just for Inner Calm

This innocuous book came to my attention in 2005 and it’s passed through my hands repeatedly since. I’d no inclination to peruse its contents for I’d ceased to think in miracles. In 2005, I was cursing God for abandoning me. I was using all my energy to stave off the hell I descended into 15 years earlier by marrying a man as un-Godly as anyone could be.

In 2007, while packing some books as donations for a book fair, my hand yet again fell on “A Course in Miracles “.By now, I’d secured a divorce from my husband but was still dealing with the fallout. As I grasped the book, I became very thoughtful and calm. What was it concerning this book that invoked feelings I hadn’t experienced in a very long time? My hand clung to the book refusing to put it down. Realizing that this is an indicator that I’d better have a closer look, I made a cup of tea and sat in the best reading chair. With great curiosity, I focused on the blue hardcover and read “A Course in Miracles, a base for inner peace.” Wow. That has been quite a bold statement but okay, I made a decision to bite. Taking a deep breath, I pondered the most obvious question: What IS the foundation for inner peace? This book instantly opened a classic wound and it’d better have the solution to healing.

“A Course in Miracles” is truly that, a course. Written in three parts, this book is to not be studied lightly and can not be read in weekly or perhaps a month. There’s text, a workbook for students and an information for teachers. I’d the sudden urge to fling the book across the space because I was deeply and profoundly afraid. I instinctively understood that after I began looking over this book, encuentro virtual con david hoffmeister I was going to have to alter and was I ready for the journey ahead?

The best movie is “The Matrix “.The key character Neo is searching for the solution to the matrix. He understands the matrix exists but he doesn’t know very well what it is. The man with the solution, Morpheus, contacts Neo and offers the chance for truth giving Neo an option between having a blue pill or even a red pill. Take the blue pill and remain ignorant or take the red pill and find the solution to the matrix. Before he reaches for his pill of choice, Morpheus cautions Neo which should he pick the red pill, he is able to never get back to the life he had been living.

“A Course in Miracles” could be the red pill. Do I read it and change everything I learn about the world and myself or do I take the blue pill and make “A Course in Miracles” book fair fodder?

As I choke down the red pill, I flip to Lesson 1 of 365 in the workbook for students and promptly read, “Nothing I see in this room means anything “.Oh dear. Could it be too late to take the blue pill?
