  • The Depth and Intricacy of a Single Paragraph This article is an in-depth explication of a particular paragraph in the Course, one that speaks of the ego as "the self-appointed mediator" of all relationships—the thing we look to to help us iron out our differences. How good of a job does it do?
  • The Ocean of Your Mind This article is based on a passage in the fourth review of the Workbook, a passage that metaphorically depicts our true mind as a vast ocean whose majesty remains unaffected by all that flotsam we throw into it.
