A Course in Miracles is a teaching that extends an opportunity, through study of Text and the daily application of 365 Lessons, to reverse the beliefs that uphold the world of duality. These include our belief in and acceptance of struggle, conflict, scarcity, pain, illness and countless forms of death… and the ultimate death of the body.
It is the body that is perhaps the most confusing aspect of the physical world which we have confused with reality. We have in fact, made the body our identity. Course upholds our oneness in God as our one reality and proclaims the world God created is one that witnesses only to love. In that, there is no duality and what is not an extension of love, is simply illusion and cannot exist. "Reality" refers to that which is eternal. Nothing that exists in the physical world can be said to be eternal so we must recognize although is exists in form, it in unreal in the terms of our eternal life in spirit.
Course teachings affirm our union with God and our existence as God created us—forever untouched by our errors and experiences in the world. Course offers lessons in choosing love, guided by the voice of Holy Spirit, which keeps us ever in awareness of God and the Christ within, which we share with all of God’s children.
Each of us can come into an experience of the peace of God and the vision of Christ that undoes illusion and assures awareness of our identity in God.
A COURSE IN MIRACLES IS “A self-study spiritual thought system that teaches the way to Universal Love through Forgiveness”.
A Course in Miracles simply states:
"Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God."
(Foundation for Inner Peace)
Our understanding and practice of "A Course in Miracles" principles is easier with the help of someone who has already begun and is striving to apply Course principles in life.
“I have found A Course in Miracles to be a clear, consistent teaching and path of spiritual awakening. Course clearly identifies reality and non-reality-- the real world from the world we’ve made up and continue to perceive and experience as in the physical world. It offers a practice whose only outcome is peace and freedom and is one that is an answer to every personal and world concern.”
" A Course in Miracles has a huge impact on how I think, problem-solve, and strive to understand myself and the world." Shiranda has studied "Course" since 1996. She is an experienced educator and counselor.
