Lesson #

(139) I will accept Atonement for myself.(140) Only salvation can be said to cure.


Make way for love, which you did not create, but which you can extend. On earth this means forgive your brother, that the darkness may be lifted from your mind. (T-29.III.4:1-2)

Is the deck stacked against us on the journey home?
It can certainly seem as if the odds are against us on the spiritual journey. A great deal seems to be asked of us, yet despite mounds of desire and effort on our part, we often seem to get little in return. In the meantime, the world doesn’t appear to be cooperating in our spiritual progress and God and the Holy Spirit appear to be keeping Their distance. What does the Course have to say about this state of affairs?

Note, you must be a CCC member in order to listen to these classes.

The facets of the role of teacher of pupils, part 1

A Better Way

April/May Issue of A Better Way #133 This month's article is one by Greg titled "The Outcome Is As Certain As God: The Blessings of Infinite Patience. " Most of us wrestle with impatience at one time or another. Fortunately for us, this is an issue the Course addresses. The Course places a major emphasis on the virtue of patience, to the point of calling us to infinite patience. In this article, Greg shares a bit of what he's learned about the blessings of infinite patience. Click here to read this month's A Better Way.

Does the Course recommend telling others "You made that"? 
What is the Circle's take on the idea that there is "no one out there"—that we have created all the situations that present themselves to us? I find this very annoying, as I find I can't even state that I feel a group is not working because of scapegoating or whatever, without people jumping on me and saying I made that. I don't like the idea of being led to the slaughter by those who decide what A Course in Miracles says, and the rest of us have to agree or else we are being "negative" or choose to create disharmony or see things that aren't there. This really concerns me, particularly about the integrity of ACIM, if this stuff is considered okay.  Read more or post a reply»

More Questions about Animals 
We get a lot of questions about animals — so many, in fact, that we already have two other Q & A's on the topic. We've received a few more questions that weren't directly covered in those previous pieces, so we thought it would be worthwhile to write one more piece on animals. In this piece, Greg addresses vegetarianism, the suffering of animals, and what happens when animals die.  Read more or post a reply»
