And by that I mean, ahem!... Check out the first five sentences...
" This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can decide what you want to take at a given time. "
The only choice is when I take it at any-given-time?
But, there is enormous knowledge inside it.
It takes surfing around a few pages to realize that actually, it is required, because it is the only psychic message there is.
This is the same information we hear from anyone who has ever grown into spiritual high levels and tried to tell all of us how to participate them. This is the way.
Indeed, there is a heavy " Christian" tone to the book. HOWEVER to my shock, and unlike the tales I heard in both, catholic-elementary AND catholic-high-school (such was my luck) --- this book interprets things correctly.
For example... take a contentious phrase, something like: " revenge is mine".
Can you imagine how one can 'interpret' that to a captivated audience of easily scared listeners? or, worse, can you imagine the reaction of someone who may be furious and stumbling on such a page?
It could be dangerous.
But the book makes the meaning clear, at least for me..... this is exactly what it claims (I paraphrase):
Revenge is mine means you NEVER take revenge. You are doing the right thing, however you do not take revenge because the results of the steps of s/he, whom you perceive as your perpetrator, are NOT up to you, but up to a higher power.
Early this year I took to A Course In Miracles again and found gems within it. I desired to share one of the most interesting ones with you.
Right here they are:
1. - INFINITE PATIENCE DELIVERS INSTANT RESULTS
The first time I read this one I laughed. I suggest, c'mon! Immediate results, oh yea yeah, ha ha anordna.
I decided I to put it to test, that very day. I actually needed to open a new bank account, and I actually knew these things take forever. Also I kind of needed it to work because I was already late for work. Therefore I wanted it to work.
When the bank consultant asked for the usual documents and apologized for the computer being slow, I actually took it as an indicator. I said to personally: infinite patience delivers immediate results. Then...
I said to him: " Consider your time. No rush at all". (I was sweating inside)
But I actually meant it.
The bank account was open within 13 minutes (I tracked it). I've never seen that happen in a NYC bank before. I was early for work.
You see, the thing with this spell is that it has wonder in it: it removes " time" from the equation.
The first part has the word " infinite" in it: We all are outside of time, no beginning, no conclusion, ALMOST NO TIME.
That subsequently, is coupled with " patience", which is a human demonstration of infinity.
The second part gets the word " immediate" inside it, which means RIGHT NOW. NO TIME. Plus its paired with the word " result", meaning: something happens, NOW.
NO TIME = INFINITY = NO MOMENT = SOMETHING HAPPENS RIGHT NOW.
And all we got to do was have an open mind and remember the affirmation.
Moving into the present with an open heart (as you will if you really wanted it to work), gives you an edge...
You are operating from infinity.
Try it. You tell me.
2. - A MIRACLE IS REALLY A SHIFT WITHIN PERCEPTION
The power of an alchemist lies not in switching dust into gold. That is simply a metaphor to show the strength of the mind that lies behind such a miracle.
A real miracle is the one that happens when in revenge of desperation, hurt, beat, bankruptcy, we still move our perception from lack, to abundance.
We certainly have our feet on the floor, we realize where we are, but we also trust the infinite force that is keeping us in existence right now, and we know we are ample, in this moment, because we are here.
Exactly how is that for a miracle?
The Course in Miracles re-defines this is of a 'miracle' as something quite mundane which we can do only if we are strong enough.
Exactly why do we need to be strong enough? Because changing our habits is not easy.
Looking at a situation in a different light requires humility. We need to feel the fire of anger, let it go, and re-open our minds for new possibilities.
The stuff of alchemists...
3. - I actually DON'T PERCEIVE MY PERSONAL BEST INTERESTS
This one blew my mind right of its skull.
I actually mean, how true is the fact? Give it a minute, let it sink in.
There is a history of this enlightened monk who, one night, gets a visit from the parents of the teen-age lady that lives next door.
The parents are furious, plus they accuse him of getting their daughter pregnant. They let him know he will have to look after the baby. And that they will tell everyone in the village. He is a fraud.
The monk claims: Is that so?
No reaction. He is which he does not perceive his very own best interests.
The baby is born. He or she takes care of it. And the monk's reputation is ruined, of course.
A year later the parents return and apologize, they let him know their child confessed that the child was fathered by the butcher. And, that they want the baby back.
The monk says: Is usually that so?
The baby goes back to his parents.
The monk's reputation is restored. Further, perhaps he now becomes a legend.
We are discussing about it now.
The story survives because there is truth in it.
How does that introduction I told you about in the starting continue? Check out the next two lines...
" The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. This does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. "
And removing the veils to our awareness is actually we do in our practice every day.
Here is to YOU, Dear Veils: Consider your time to clear her from my perception.
Consider all the time you need...
I possess infinite patience..., This book was a complete life change for me. My entire life I have always been moody, emotionally unstable, thrown back and forth by my thoughts, bubbling with enthusiasm one moment and then sulking in a stupor the next. My last relationship was destroyed by such a mindset. Although I actually had ideas of what had gone wrong, this book eloquently expounded on ideas which i had hazy thoughts of, but was unable to put into words. The first time I was able to put the knowledge I discovered out of this book into practice was a emotionally explosive second ?nternet site realized that I actually finally could control my thoughts and take a hold of my mind. Would highly recommend this book to any and., There are interesting subjects, there are entertaining articles and fun to read books. Then there is As a man thinketh. As you read this book you just cannot help but feel more pure and light hearted & faithful about the future. The writer James Allen seems like a fantastic character, a real honest man. This book not only lightens my day anytime I read it, but is sure tattooed deep into the very core of my own life philosophy. I would give it a 10 out of of 5 stars.
