  • Is Jesus Actually with Us, or Is This a Useful Fiction? It can be very difficult to believe that we have a real relationship with Jesus, when we don't see him or hear him. In this article, Robert examines a number of passages in the Course in which Jesus demonstrates that he is quite aware of this difficulty, and yet urges us to regard the relationship with him as real.
  • Reverse Projection: "As You See Him You Will See Yourself" We are all familiar with projection, whereby our self-perception becomes our perception of others. But are we aware that the reverse of that, in which causation travels the other way, is also a major plank in the Course's system? In this article, Robert explores "reverse projection," in which our perception of others determines our perception of ourselves.
  • There Are No Accidents Where do the events of our lives come from? In this study of relevant passages, Robert concludes that there are three explanations offered by the Course for where the events of our lives come from. These three seem different, yet they converge on a single crucial idea.
  • The Meaning of Christmas According to the Course An attempt to weave the Course's various references to the Christmas story into a single picture of the meaning of Christmas.
  • The Pull of God The Course speaks of the "pull of God" and of God's "irresistible attraction." What does that mean? How does it reframe how we normally look at our desire for God? This article lists fifteen points that summarize this important concept in the Course.
  • A Day in the Life of the Miracle Worker Living the Course really comes down to living each day in a new way. In this article, Robert looks at how the early references to being a miracle worker suggest that, according to the Course, we live each day.
  • Why Should We Be Grateful? This is a talk Robert gave at Thanksgiving time, based on the lesson "Love is the way I walk in gratitude." It addresses what, in the Course's eyes, we should be grateful for and whom we should be grateful to.
  • The Religion of the Ego Most Course students would call themselves "spiritual but not religious." But what if the truth is that we're all religious? In this article, Robert shows how, according to the Course, the religious impulse is inherent in all of us. And until we change our minds, we are all devoted followers of the religion of the ego.
  • Why Are You Not Rejoicing? The Spirit of Celebration in the Historical Jesus and A Course in Miracles Everyone loves a good celebration. But why? Often we celebrate the good things of life precisely because there's so much that's bad; our celebrations are often nothing more than a brief respite from the suffering of everyday existence in this dog-eat-dog world. But what if we could tap into a spirit of celebration that is truly celebratory, a celebration of life that rests upon the firm foundation of a truly happy reality? This is the celebration Jesus holds out to us, both in the gospels and in the Course.
  • Who Made the World? The question of how the world began and who made it is one of the central issues for students of A Course in Miracles. In this article, Robert shares a new vision of the relationship between God and the world, based on passages from the early dictation of the Course.
