The purpose of A Course in Miracles is to train our minds. Just like reading a book cannot train our body, reading a book cannot train our minds. That doesn’t even seem logical.
Imagine reading Julia Child’s classic text “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” and then thinking that you are now a French chef. That would be preposterous. It would be delusional.
That’s why people are continuously telling me they’ve studied A Course in Miracles for years with little change in their lives. Their ego is driving their spiritual growth, and not much is happening.
We think that we know the Course just because we can quote it, but that’s not the same as living it. I learned this the hard way. I studied for so long, and knew the spiritual principle without living it. And I wondered why I wasn’t making more progress.
I didn’t see what was so obvious – that living the Course from my heart was the thing that would change my life.
Collecting spiritual information is a huge distraction. Being a spiritual know-it-all will not win any points or bring any benefit.
Being loving, kind, generous of heart, patient and compassionate – that’s the ticket.
“The purpose of the Workbook is to train your mind in a systematic way to a different perception of everyone and everything in the world.” From the A Course in Miracles Workbook Introduction
In Masterful Living Class last night, I was sharing that in this world, every day is “Opposite Day”. The ego is a thought system of illusions and delusions where nothing is what it seems. Spirit is the truth, it is Love, it is liberation.
Understanding the purpose of A Course in Miracles helps us to appreciate its value. That’s why I’m sharing about it on my radio show today!
