  • The Doorway to Reality This article is a commentary on the first two paragraphs of T-29.IV, "Dream Roles." The message of these paragraphs is that "Dreams are dreams." We can't hold on to some dreams and let the others go; the choice isn't between good and bad dreams, but rather between dreaming and waking up. To recognize that all dreams are just dreams is the doorway to awakening to reality.
  • The Movie Projector Analogy Revisited In the movie projector analogy, the Course's teaching that we project our thoughts to produce the world we see is compared to the common experience of seeing a movie projected onto a screen. This analogy is often used to minimize the role of behavior in the Course's system, but here, Greg presents a new version that accommodates the Course's teaching on the importance of loving behavior.
  • Should we turn off the mind, as Eckhart Tolle says? Eckhart Tolle says that the mind is the greatest obstacle to awakening—that it's good to use my mind to deal with moving through this world, but that to awaken, I need to learn how to stop thinking. I think this is in harmony with the Course, but I'm not sure. What is your position?
  • Meditation and A Course in Miracles—Part 3 Meditation is one of the most universal, time-honored, and effective spiritual practices. Its effectiveness is now being confirmed by an ever-growing mountain of research data. Yet its place in A Course in Miracles seems far more questionable and hazy. To explore the relationship between the Course's methods of meditation and the methods of other spiritual traditions, we asked Roger Walsh to join Robert Perry for a dialogue on meditation. Besides being a student of the Course, Roger is a long-time practitioner and scientific researcher of meditation.
  • The Hidden Power of IMIF Decisions Have you ever wondered why we don't change faster? Why we seem so stuck in our patterns? This article presents an answer from Lesson 136, one that probably never occurred to us.

  • Open Mind Meditation: The Practice of the Final Step Meditation is a key practice in A Course in Miracles. In this article, Robert presents the third of three meditation techniques found in the Workbook: what he calls "Open Mind Meditation," the technique we are meant to practice nearly every day for the entire second half of the Workbook. Robert gives how-to instructions for this technique, and explains its significance as a practice of what the Course calls the "final step."
  • Did We Make the World or Just the World as We See It? When the Course says "you made the world," what does it mean by "world"?
  • A Course in Miracles and the Perennial Wisdom—Part 4 How does A Course in Miracles relate to wider streams of spirituality around the world, both ancient and modern? Is it restating the ancient truths in new form or is it heading off in its own unique directions—or perhaps some of both? Mystic and public policy lawyer Jim Marion, author of Putting on the Mind of Christ, graciously agreed to explore these issues with Course interpreter Robert Perry.
