  • Memorize? Are You Kidding?! Allen presents an enthusiastic encouragement for students to memorize passages from the Course, giving several benefits that come from memorization, and offering what he refers to as "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Memorization": a memorization technique that works for anyone. It isn't easy, but the method works if you do the work.
  • Doing Our Part What part does each of us play in the healing of the world? Allen offers some surprising thoughts on the topic.
  • Making Error Real What does it mean to “make error real”? Allen demonstrates that the phrase means something very different from what is commonly thought, and discusses the miracle of not reacting to other people's mistakes.
  • Misunderstood Passages: Trust Not Your Good Intentions Allen discusses the real meaning of the often-misunderstood saying from the Course, “Trust not your good intentions.” He shows that it may mean something nearly opposite to what you might suppose.
  • How Can We Receive Miracles? Why don't we experience more miracles in our lives? Is it a misunderstanding of what a miracle is, or are we failing to meet the conditions for miracles? Allen addresses both potential causes in this article.
  • Hearing God's Voice Means Joining Allen comments on the unique way that the Course links our ability to hear God's Voice with joining with one another: "You cannot hear the Voice for God in yourself alone" (T-9.II.6:4).
  • What Is a Holy Instant? The Course uses the phrase "holy instant" 147 times. In an early discussion it identifies the holy instant as "the lesson God gives you" through the Holy Spirit (T-15.II.2:3); it says that the holy instant is sufficient to "re-establish perfect sanity, perfect peace, and perfect love," "exchange hell for Heaven," and "transcend all of the ego's making" (T-15.I.14:2,4,5). What then is this incredibly powerful thing? What is a holy instant? In two extensive articles, Allen Watson summarizes the Course's teaching on this topic.
