A Course in Miracles is so pure, so great, so effective, and so considerably a lot more spiritually sophisticated than any other piece of the world’s literature (previous and present), that you have to truly encounter it to think it. But those whose minds are also attached to worldly thoughts, and lack the underlying thirst for correct spiritual expertise that is needed for its understanding, will most likely not comprehend a single entire web page. That is not due to the fact A Course in Miracles is confusing – on the contrary its principles are remarkably easy – but rather because it is the nature of spiritual understanding that those who are not prepared to understand it, just can not comprehend it. As stated in the Bible, at the starting of the book of John: “The light shineth in darkness, and darkness comprehended it not”.
Ever since I initial became aware of the majestic and awe-inspiring presence of God, I have enjoyed reading numerous great spiritual functions like the Bible (my favorite components 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 close to the greatness of a Course in Miracles. Reading it with an open mind and heart, your fears and troubles wash away. You turn out to be aware of a marvelous adore deep inside you – deeper than anything you knew before. The future begins to appear so vibrant for you and your loved ones. You feel enjoy for everyone like these you previously have tried to leave excluded. These experiences are very powerful and at instances throw you off balance a little, but it is worth it: A Course in Miracles introduces you to a enjoy so peaceful, so powerful and so universal – you will wonder how so several of the world’s religions, whose aim is supposedly a equivalent knowledge, got so off track.
I would like to say right here to any Christian who feels that his church’s teachings do not truly satisfy his thirst to know a sort, merciful and loving God, but is somewhat afraid to study the Course due to the fact of others’ claims that it is inconsistent with “accurate” Christianity: Don’t be concerned! I have study the gospels several instances and I assure you that a Course in Miracles is totally consistent with Jesus’ teachings even though he was on earth. Never fear the fanatical defenders of exclusionist dogma – these poor individuals feel themselves to be the only carriers of Jesus’ message, and the only ones worthy of his blessings, even though all other will go to hell. A Course in Miracles reflects Jesus’ correct message: unconditional love for *all individuals*. Even though he was on earth, Jesus mentioned to judge a tree by its fruit. So give it a try and see how the fruits that ripen in your life taste. If they taste negative, you can abandon A Course in Miracles. But if acim taste as sweet as mine do, and the millions of other true seekers who have identified A Course in Miracles to be absolutely nothing less than a heavenly treasure, then congratulations – and might your heart always be abundantly filled with peaceful, loving joy.
