A Course in Miracles is really pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and so much more spiritually advanced than any other bit 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’s essential for its understanding, will more than 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 find themselves not ready to realize it, just cannot understand it. As mentioned in the Bible, in the beginning 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’ve enjoyed reading many wonderful spiritual works 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 close to the greatness of a Course in Miracles. Reading it by having an open mind and heart, your fears and troubles wash away. You become conscious of a splendid love deep within you – deeper than whatever you knew before. The long run begins to seem so bright for you and your loved ones. You are feeling love for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded spotify a course in miracles. These experiences are extremely powerful and occasionally throw you off balance a little, but it’s worth it: A Course in Miracles introduces one 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 the same 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 understand a form, merciful and loving God, but is somewhat afraid to see the Course due to others’claims that it’s inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I’ve browse the gospels often times and I assure you that the Course in Miracles is totally 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 sole carriers of Jesus’message, and the sole 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 earth, Jesus believed to judge a tree by its fruit. So give it a take to and see the way 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 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 filled with peaceful, loving joy.
