Inspiration

If you realized that you do not perceive your own best interests, you could be taught what they are. But in the presence of your conviction that you do know what they are, you cannot learn. (W-pI.24.2:1-2)

A Better Way

August/September Issue of A Better Way #130 This month's article is one by Robert entitled "The Holy Spirit: the Voice for God or the Voice of God?" Part of the basic framework that most Course students carry around is that God Himself does not speak within the dream of this world, that instead the Holy Spirit—the Voice for God—speaks on His behalf. Yet Robert shows in this article that when we go back to the original dictation that Helen Schucman received, we find a somewhat different picture, one that could reshape our sense of God's relationship with the world.
