A Course in Miracles is really pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and so much more spiritually advanced than some other little bit of the world’s literature (past and present), that you’ve to actually 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 required for its understanding, will more than likely 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 instead because it’s the type of spiritual knowledge that those who find themselves not ready to understand it, just 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 “.
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 are the Sermon on the Mount and Psalms), the Bhagavad-Gita, the Upanishads, the Koran and the poetry of Kabir and Rumi spotify a course in miracles. Not one of them come near to the greatness of a Course in Miracles. Reading it by having an open mind and heart, your fears and troubles wash away. You feel alert to a splendid love deep within you – deeper than what you knew before. The long run begins to look so bright for you and your loved ones. You are feeling love for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded. These experiences are very powerful and at times throw you off balance a little, but it’s worth every penny: A Course in Miracles introduces one to a love so peaceful, so strong and so universal – you’ll wonder how so most of the world’s religions, whose aim is supposedly an identical experience, got so off track.
I wish to say here to any Christian who feels that his church’s teachings do not truly satisfy his thirst to know a kind, merciful and loving God, but is somewhat afraid to see the Course as a result of others’claims it is inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I’ve read the gospels many times and I assure you that the Course in Miracles is totally 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 real carriers of Jesus’message, and the only real ones worthy of his blessings, while all other should go to hell. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’true message: unconditional love for *all people*. While he was on earth, Jesus said 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 are able to abandon A Course in Miracles. But if they taste as sweet as mine do, and the millions of other true seekers who have discovered A Course in Miracles to be nothing less when compared to a heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and may your heart continually be abundantly full of peaceful, loving joy.
