This innocuous book stumbled on 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 guide fair, my hand once again fell on “A Course in Miracles “.By this time, I’d secured a divorce from my husband but was still working with the fallout. As I grasped the book, I became very thoughtful and calm. The thing that was it about any of it book that invoked feelings I hadn’t experienced in an exceedingly number of years? My hand clung to the book refusing to place it down. Realizing that this was an indicator that I’d better have a closer look, I made a cup of tea and sat in my favorite reading chair. With great curiosity, I dedicated to the blue hardcover and read “A Course in Miracles, a foundation for inner peace.” Wow. Which was a fairly bold statement but okay, I made a decision to bite. Having a deep breath, I pondered the absolute most obvious question: What IS the building blocks for inner peace? This book instantly opened an old wound and it had better have the clear answer to healing.
“A Course in Miracles” is true that, a course. Written in three parts, this book is not to be used lightly and can’t be read in weekly or possibly a month. There’s text, a workbook for students, and a guide for teachers. I’d an immediate urge to fling the book across the room because I was deeply and profoundly afraid. I instinctively understood that once I began looking over this book, I was going to have to change, and was I ready for the journey ahead?
My personal favorite movie is “The Matrix “.The key character Neo is trying to find the clear answer to the matrix. He understands the matrix exists but he doesn’t know very well what it is. The person with the clear answer, Morpheus, contacts Neo and offers the ability for truth giving Neo a selection between going for a blue pill or a red pill. Take the blue pill and remain ignorant or take the red pill and find the clear answer to the matrix best acim spotify. Before he reaches for his pill of preference, Morpheus cautions Neo which should he pick the red pill, they can never go back to living he have been living.
“A Course in Miracles” is 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. Can it be too late to take the blue pill?
