  • How the Course Views the Bible An excerpt from his book Seeing the Bible Differently, this article presents a broad overview of the way the Course interprets the Bible.
  • How to Deal with Payment in a Spiritual Ministry Spiritual ministries always seem to be struggling financially (not that we would know anything about that!), while at the same time wrestling with larger questions of how to see money and whether to charge money for services. These questions are actually dealt with head-on in a section called "The Question of Payment" at the end of the Psychotherapy supplement. In this article, Robert extrapolates what that section has to say about money and payment for spiritual ministries in general.
  • What We Do Not Know The Course is asking us to look from a vantage point so different that it can only be described as entirely outside the universe of space and time. The Course does not want simply to shift our perception a few degrees, it wants to turn it upside down and inside out. One way to begin to understand this is to examine what the Course says we do NOT know.
  • The Process of Changing Thoughts Course students often wonder how we can awaken to God just by repeating words from the Workbook. In this article, drawing from a passage in Lesson 284, Allen takes us through the Course's process of changing thoughts, a process in which dwelling on the Course's ideas enables them to penetrate deeper and deeper into our minds, until they become a part of us and our lives are completely transformed.
  • A Course in Cause and Not Effect
    An Overview of Chapter 12 of the Text
    This chapter of the Text is about what the Holy Spirit is trying to teach us: to accept His judgment in place of our own. It tells us what we will begin to see when we are finally willing to let go of our interpretations, to stop thinking we understand anyone else's ego, and to allow the interpretation of the Holy Spirit to arise in place of our own. Our goal is to see everyone and everything in the world with different eyes.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
