A Course in Miracles : Basis With regard to Internal Serenity
May 13, 2020 Business
This innocuous book came to my attention in 2005 and it has passed through my hands several times since. I had no inclination to peruse its contents for I had ceased to believe 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 book fair, my hand once more fell on “A Course in Miracles “.By now, I had secured a divorce from my husband but was still dealing with the fallout. As I grasped the book, I became very thoughtful and calm. What was it concerning this book that invoked feelings I hadn’t experienced really number of years? My hand clung to the book refusing to place it down. Realizing that this was an indicator that I had better have a closer look, I made a pot 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 basis for inner peace.” Wow. That was a fairly bold statement but okay, I made a decision to bite. Going for a deep breath, I pondered the absolute most obvious question: What IS the inspiration for inner peace? This book instantly opened a vintage wound and it’d better have the solution to healing.
“A Course in Miracles” is actually that, a course. Written in three parts, this book is not to be used lightly and can’t be read in a week or perhaps a month. There’s text, a workbook for students and a guide for teachers. I had the sudden urge to fling the book across the space because I was deeply and profoundly afraid. I instinctively understood that when I started reading this book, I would have to improve and was I ready for the journey ahead?
My favorite movie is “The Matrix “.The main character Neo is looking for the solution to the matrix. He understands the matrix exists but he doesn’t know very well what it is. The person with the solution, Morpheus, contacts Neo and offers the ability for truth giving Neo a selection between going for a blue pill or a red pill. Take the blue pill and remain ignorant or take the red pill and find the solution to the matrix encuentro virtual con maria del mar. Before he reaches for his pill of choice, Morpheus cautions Neo that will he pick the red pill, he can never get back to the life span he have been living.
“A Course in Miracles” is the red pill. Do I read it and change everything I find out about the planet 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?
