A Course in Miracles — Basic foundation For Middle Silence

Business

This innocuous book stumbled on my attention in 2005 and it has passed through my hands repeatedly since. I had no inclination to peruse its contents for I had ceased to trust 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 person as un-Godly as anyone could be.

In 2007, while packing some books as donations for a guide fair, my hand once more fell on “A Course in Miracles “.By this time around, I had secured a course in miracles spotify a divorce from my husband but was still working with the fallout. As I grasped the book, I became very thoughtful and calm. What 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 is a sign that I had better take a closer look, I made a cup of tea and sat in my personal favorite reading chair. With great curiosity, I focused on the blue hardcover and read “A Course in Miracles, a foundation for inner peace.” Wow. Which was a fairly bold statement but okay, I chose to bite. Taking a deep breath, I pondered probably the most obvious question: What IS the building blocks for inner peace? This book instantly opened a vintage wound and it had better have the clear answer to healing.

“A Course in Miracles” is really that, a course. Written in three parts, this book is to not be taken lightly and cannot be read in per week or perhaps a month. There’s text, a workbook for students and a manual for teachers. I had the sudden urge to fling the book across the room because I was deeply and profoundly afraid. I instinctively understood that when I started looking over this book, I would have to improve and was I ready for the journey ahead?

The best movie is “The Matrix “.The main character Neo is searching for the clear answer to the matrix. He understands the matrix exists but he doesn’t understand what it is. The man with the clear answer, Morpheus, contacts Neo and offers the ability for truth by providing Neo a choice between taking a blue pill or even a red pill. Take the blue pill and remain ignorant or take the red pill and find the clear answer to the matrix. Before he reaches for his pill of preference, Morpheus cautions Neo that will he choose the red pill, he is able to never go 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 find out 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?
