I have downloaded this little puppy on my kindle, so I can easily read this huge (and I mean huuuugggge) book without it breaking my knee, but I have ready it several times, in my life, and I think I am just getting a handle on it!
For those of you who don't know, this book came about after a heart-felt plea for a "better way" to be revealed. The author, and her colleague were working at a highly prestigious and highly competitive college in New York, where the back-biting and negativity was literally frustrating and draining them. Shortly thereafter, Helen Schucman began to take notes, which eventually became A Course In Miracles.
ACIM is basically three books in one, a text, a work book and a text for teachers. The premise is that most of us have been indoctrinated via our culture and society to think in hate-filled, non-loving, competitive ways, and that this is a kind of insanity. In order to return to sanity, we must retrain our minds and remove the outer layer of indoctrination. Underneath all of this, lying unconcerned and unsullied, lies the eternal love which is our true nature. We asked not to seek love, but instead seek all the blocks to its awareness inside.
The Course is not the only way to do this, but it is one very powerful way that I believe works best with the western, educated mind. It slowly buffs away the callouses of the ego, until we can see ourselves revealed within. We actively do this by employing the workbook lessons, and having some understanding of the basics of the text.
However, that said, it can take years for this wisdom to seep into every corner of the mind. I still find myself reading a passage that I have read before, only to see something so profound, so amazing, that it blows my mind. I did not see it before, because clearly I had resistance to it. So the whole thing becomes a bit of a journey, to say the least.
Of course, from my perspective, what other "course" can be worthwhile?
When I first came across ACIM some fifteen odd years ago, I found it incredibly annoying. I found myself unable to read it, and wanting to trash the book. Luckily I had the insight to wonder why it raised such anger because it was, after all, just a book. Then, over time, and searching the internet I found many others had a similar experience. One woman was so flustered by the concepts in the book, that she stopped her car on a busy bridge, during rush house, ran out and threw the book into the icy river below.
When I read that I just knew that there was something in this book that I wanted to find and wanted to know.
ACIM is not a quick read (to say the least!) but if you are ready and if you can get past your initial resistance (the ego is pretty tricky!!!) this book can and will change your life. Think about it and be patient and loving with yourself, because this journey leads home little prodigal!
Groeschel told journalist Randall Sullivan (for his book, The Miracle Detective, Grove/Atlantic, 2004): "I decided that A Course in Miracles was a fascinating blend of poorly understood Christianity inspired by her visit to Lourdes and poorly understood Christian Science inspired by her memory of Mary Baker Eddy's writings, all of it filtered through some profound psychological problems and processes."
