A Course in Miracles is really pure, so wonderful, so powerful, and much more spiritually advanced than any other piece of the world’s literature (past and present), that you have to truly experience it to trust 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 rather because it’s the type of spiritual knowledge that those who are 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 conscious of the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I have 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. None of them come near 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 marvelous love deep within you – deeper than whatever you knew before. The near future begins to seem so bright for you and your loved ones spotify a course in miracles. You feel love for everyone including those you previously have tried to leave excluded. These experiences are very powerful and occasionally throw you off balance a little, but it’s worth every penny: A Course in Miracles introduces you 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 would like to say here to any Christian who feels that his church’s teachings don’t truly satisfy his thirst to know a type, merciful and loving God, but is somewhat afraid to read the Course due to others’claims it is inconsistent with “true” Christianity: Don’t worry! I have read the gospels often times 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 carriers of Jesus’message, and the only ones worthy of his blessings, while all the 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 decide to try and see how the fruits that ripen in your lifetime taste. Should 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 discovered A Course in Miracles to be nothing less than a heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and may your heart often be abundantly full of peaceful, loving joy.
