The Golden Rule is one of the most well-known and time-honored religious teachings of all time. What does the Course have to say about it?
If the world is an illusion, what matters here? Is it all equally insignificant? Do some things matter more than others? And if so, on what basis? This is an important issue for students in general, and especially for teachers, to understand.
In our previous class, we explored the face of innocence. Now, in this class, we will explore what lies hidden beneath it: the enraged victim. Our task will be to face that this hidden self-concept really is there and to let the Course show us just how nonsensical it ultimately is.
If we are students of A Course in Miracles, we need to be really clear on exactly what miracles are. They need to be front and center in our understanding of the Course, our practice of it, and our speech about it. You may well already be fairly clear on what a miracle is, but this class will hopefully make you even clearer.
Chapter 31 of the Text contains a profound and challenging discussion of our two-layer self-concept, with the face of innocence as the superficial mask and the enraged victim as the underlying content. How can we move beyond both?
Our topic is “‘Safety is the complete relinquishment of attack’: Thoughts on how to respond to Donald Trump’s election victory.” Since the election on November 8, many Course students have shared with us that they are having a difficult time coping emotionally with Donald Trump’s victory and what his presidency might bring. In this class, based on an article Greg has just written, we want to offer some thoughts on how to respond to this event from a Course perspective. (Note: Trump supporters are welcome; the counsel offered in this class is nonpolitical and can be applied to any life situation.)
We are very happy to share with you information about a new publication that has been years in the making and that will be a foundation for the Circle going forward. Please join us to learn about what one endorser has called "a landmark moment in the history of A Course in Miracles."
In this final class on the body, we will look at the Holy Spirit’s use of the body and joyous results of that, following the same three-part division of pride, pleasure, and attack.
In this class, we will continue looking at Bill’s journal and what it tells us about applying the Course in everyday life. Robert will attempt to wrap it all up in one simple picture.
In the last class, we looked at our use of the body for pride, pleasure, and attack. In this class, we will look at the emotional cost of using the body in this way. Then we’ll look at the Holy Spirit’s use of the body and the joyous results of that.
