Recently, someone reported that guidance from Helen, which was subsequently passed on by Bill, said that “Study groups are fine for discussion as long as everyone is on equal footing but nobody is to attempt to teach [the Course’s] Meaning.” Could this be actual guidance from Jesus? What does the Course suggest on this subject?
Two sections in Chapter 3 of the Text (CE) contain invaluable teaching on rising above our chronic vulnerability to what others think of us.
As teachers, you might be getting questions about the CE. Robert will bring up and answer a number of questions that he has been getting, and will also provide you with an opportunity to raise any questions you might have been getting.
Most Course students know that the sole responsibility of the miracle worker is to accept the Atonement. But what does it mean to do so? How do we accept the Atonement? New material in the Complete and Annotated Edition makes this both clear and doable.
It is commonly assumed that delving into one's past wounds is the key to understanding oneself and is the path to healing. What does A Course in Miracles say about this?
In the first class, we looked a string of passages that spoke to what does and does not matter in this world. In this class, we will draw those together into a whole picture and apply that to the particulars of our lives.
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.
