  • A Better Way #60 How Is Our Brother Our Savior In Course circles, it is often said that our brother is our savior because he pushes our buttons and thus gives us an opportunity to look at our egos. But is this what the Course means when it says our brother is our savior? Or does it have a more exalted view of our brother in mind?
  • A Better Way #59 The Course's Nondualism: Love is a Law Without an Opposite.
  • A Better Way #58 Conclusion of Return to the Heart of God
  • A Better Way #57 The lead article in this issue is entitled "Open Mind Meditation: The Practice of the Final Step." It is both a theoretical and practical guide to the Course's crowning form of meditation, the form that we practice throughout Part II of the Workbook.
  • A Better Way #56 The lead article in this issue is a powerful piece by Nicolas "Mezz" Mezzanatto, a 21-year-old infantryman serving in Iraq. He attends an ACIM group run by Army Reserve Lt. Col. Elizabeth Bowler, a psychiatrist working with the Army's Combat Stress Control Company in the most dangerous area of Iraq. Mezz's piece, entitled "Invincible," teaches us that the Course can truly be applied anywhere and everywhere—even in a war zone.
  • A Better Way #55 The lead article in this issue is "This is a Course for Miracle Workers: Please Clock In." For a long time, we at the Circle have believed that Jesus' central purpose for the Course is right there in the title "A Course in Miracles." It is essentially a vocational training manual for the job of miracle worker: a person who extends miracles of true perception to others in thought, word, and deed.
    In this article, I share some highlights from the first two chapters of the Course (including additional material from the Urtext) on the job of miracle worker. This material has had a major impact on how I see the Course and my own life's purpose. I hope you will find it as thought-provoking as I have.
  • A Better Way #54 The lead article in this issue is "Make This Year Different. How the Course Would Have Us Approach the New Year?"
  • A Better Way #53 The lead article in this issue is "Shadows on the Wall. How Would the Course Have Us Regard Modern Physics?" For many students of the Course, especially in the wake of the movie, What the @$%#* Do We Know?quantum physics is seen as scientific support for the Course's view of reality. Yet would the Course see it that way? Greg's answer may surprise you.
  • A Better Way #52 The lead article in this issue is "Does A Course in Miracles Commit the 'Sins of Scripture'?" Based on the presence of these "texts of terror," he maintains that we should not see the Bible as the Word of God. What does all of this imply about the Course?
  • A Better Way #51 The lead article in this issue is "Medicine for Those Pangs of Guilt." This article unpacks a portion of Lesson 133. This lesson teaches that the way to heal our pangs of guilt is not to assert the purity of our motives, but to look on our motives undisguised. How can this wipe away our guilt? The lesson provides a brilliant answer.
