The social network for students and teachers of "A Course in Miracles"
There are many places in A Course in Miracles where the voice of Jesus speaks to us directly. I open and close this blog posting with two of those passages, like book-ends that echo His message.
“I assure you that I will witness for…Continue

A Course In Miracles says, “God is not the author of fear. You are.” This is hard to grasp if we believe that God created the world, and thus is responsible for the…
I still remember how it was. I remember the anxiety and the nervous thoughts constantly passing through my mind. I recall the fear, the nasty comments I reserved only for myself and I can absolutely feel the compulsion again: That need to feel better, to fill up and then to empty.
It’s insane. I know it. But I also know that we all have our own ways of pushing away the uncomfortable and this just happened to be mine.
Recently I have noticed a bit of this repeating in my life. I…Continue

I had a challenging thing happen to me today. I'm an author and I spend some time on Goodreads to help market my own books. I also will sometimes peruse my friends' reviews. The other day, a woman, "M" said some really abusive stuff to a friend of mine. I made the mistake, and I'm just going to own this without judging it any further, of responding. Of trying to fix stuff in some silly egoistical way. Again, I'm not judging it in simply accepting I should have known…Continue
I don’t see how I’ve created my own life. Some terrible things have occurred and I didn’t want them…
(In A Course in Miracles “to create” means “to extend” or “to be one with”. ACIM uses the word “make” for what is meant by “create” in this question).
Your choice for the limited, imperfect, disordered experience of not-Truth (universe of form) was not made by you personally or individually. It was made by the split mind of which your mind is one…Continue

“…I am 23 years old. Since I graduated from high school I haven’t joined any… form of education…What I feel in me is this… worldly desire for finding my goal/purpose in form. It feels like I cannot be fully happy while this remains unknown for me. Like just living ordinarily doing very little in form makes me unhappy…I noticed that the stories, articles about Finding Your Purpose make me sad in a way…But the truth is that the other part of me, the truer part, wants to let go of…Continue

Hello Miracle Sharers!
This blog post by Nouk Sanchez is too profound to not share...
Recently, one of Nouk's retreat participants went into spontaneous cardiac arrest after a discussion about miracles that ended with him saying, “Well I want to see a literal miracle!” His heart stopped about a minute later, and after being dead for 25 minutes, he made a miraculous recovery. This was a…

In God, to God, with God, for God. That seems like the answer. But getting there is the question.
I suspect I’m transforming, changing, becoming something a little different, or a lot different than I was. Or so I hope. Changing a soul, like changing a home, makes me lots…Continue

"Get the Monkey off Your Back"
by Anastazia Schmid, a prisoner...
The journey of the Monkey Project [hand made stuffed Monkeys]is a story of synchonicities and interconnection. This symbolic creation and the message it carries expand Universal Love and connection, celebrating individual uniqueness in all its forms by helping others from the inside out. My life's transformation through tragedies and…Continue
It's important to flesh out our understanding of guiltlessness as a dimension of experience without constantly referring to the idea of guilt. You can compare two cities and say one is beautiful and one is ugly, but you can’t really properly describe beauty as an absence of ugliness and likewise you can’t describe the Real based on what is unreal, which is guilt. We can discuss guilt until we’re blue in the face, but we can’t really explore its alternative until we let go of guilt and look…Continue

My ideas of happiness are small. I base them on my tiny experiences within my little world of trying to please all the people around me. I think I know what’s best for me, but, alas, most of the time I don’t have a clue.
The things that I think will make me happy usually revolve around getting more: more money, more things, more love. I want people to compliment my house, my body, my children, my travels, my work. In short, my quest for joy usually rests on seeing it outside of…Continue
Hi all, it's been quite some time since I've posted on here, in fact, I believe it's the first time in 2013. Anyway, I recently read Marianne Williamson's Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles for the first time. I posted a review for it over on Amazon in case anybody wanted check it out. Not everyone will necessarily agree with it, but here it is anyway. Enjoy!…Continue
"In everything be led by Him, and do not reconsider. Trust Him to answer quickly, surely, and with Love for everyone who will be touched in any way by the decision. And everyone will be. Would you take unto yourself the sole responsibility for deciding what can bring only good to everyone? Would you know this?" -- A Course in Miracles; Chapter 14, Section III, 17:4-8
A friend asked why,…Continue

And has it inspired you in a life changing way that you would like to share?
What exactly is meant by “spiritualizing the ego”? Does ACIM discuss this? And why is it undesirable?
What is popularly called “spiritualizing the ego” is called “confusion of levels” in A Course in Miracles. It refers to confusing the seeming-levels…Continue

When I was a child and my mother’s mother visited, she would sleep in my double bed, regaling me with stories lifted from The Arabian Nights before veering off into more intimate, romanticized terrain. Describing her life growing up in the Midwest among legions of older, mischievous, albeit adoring brothers, later marrying my French Canadian grandfather, and eking out a living on a dairy farm hugging the New York/Canadian border where they managed to raise seven children, seemingly…Continue
"You are entitled to miracles because of what you are. You will receive miracles because of what God is. And you will offer miracles because you are One with God. Your claim to miracles does not lie in your illusions about yourself. It does not depend on any magical powers you have ascribed to yourself, nor on any of the rituals you have devised. It is inherent in the Truth of what you are. It was ensured in your creation,…Continue
