Lesson #

(103) God, being Love, is also happiness.
(104) I seek but what belongs to me in truth.



Such is the Holy Spirit's kind perception of specialness; His use of what you made, to heal instead of harm. To each He gives a special function in salvation he alone can fill; a part for only him. Nor is the plan complete until he finds his special function, and fulfills the part assigned to him, to make himself complete within a world where incompletion rules. (T-25.VI.4:1-3)

Recent CCC Classes

Why doesn’t God just wake us up?
This question, which occurs to most Course students at some point, is beautifully answered in a section in the CE called “The Call to Awake” (T-6.VI). This answer could potentially reframe your whole picture of the Course and of life on earth.

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

Should anyone attempt to teach the meaning of the Course?
Recently, someone reported that guidance from Helen, which was subsequently passed on by Bill, said that “Study groups are fine for discussion as long as everyone is on equal footing but nobody is to attempt to teach [the Course’s] Meaning.” Could this be actual guidance from Jesus? What does the Course suggest on this subject?

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

A Better Way

April/May Issue of A Better Way #140 The article in this issue is one by Greg entitled "From False Guiltlessness to True Guiltlessness: A Commentary on Helen's Concept of 'Healthy Guilt Feelings.'" In our Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles (CE), there is a curious line that says, "The concept of healthy guilt feelings has great merit" (T-5.V.6:1). Given the Course's teaching that we are guiltless, how can guilt feelings be healthy? Greg shows that there is in fact a continuum of sorts that runs from a false, ego-based form of "guiltlessness" all the way to the true guiltlessness that the Course regards as salvation. Learning more about this continuum can give us a very practical approach to our own feelings of guilt. Click here to read this month's A Better Way.
