Lesson #

(137) When I am healed I am not healed alone.
(138) Heaven is the decision I must make.


To heal, then, is to correct perception in your brother and yourself. (T-7.II.2:1)

Recent CCC Classes

The voice of the ego
The Course is always describing the ego whispering to us, counseling us, talking to us. What does the ego’s voice sound like? What are its characteristics? How can we learn to spot it when it shows up?

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

Giving miracles, part 1
As part of a series of classes based on the final sessions of “Love Cannot Be Compromised,” a workshop Robert gave recently in Sedona, this class will be part 1 of “Giving miracles,” an overview of the key theme of giving love to others and thereby receiving love ourselves.

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

A Better Way

December/January Issue of A Better Way #137 This month's article is one by Greg entitled "Miracles Depend on Timing: Trusting in the Process of Positive Change." Jesus once told Helen that "miracles depend on timing," and that their effectiveness depends on a "three-way readiness": Jesus' readiness, the miracle worker's readiness, and the miracle receiver's readiness. In this article, Greg expands on this idea and shows how it can help us become more trusting, confident, and patient with the process as we extend miracles of love to others.
