  • How does the Course view relations with people who have disabilities? by Greg Mackie. How does the Course view relations with people who have disabilities?
  • How would the Course have us approach a new year? by Greg Mackie. The Course contains much advice on how to approach a new year. In a nutshell, it would have us dedicate this new year to the same purpose that it would have us dedicate every moment: to the goal of really taking the Course's message to heart in every way.
  • Is Heaven boring? by Greg Mackie. I sometimes feel reluctant to give up the world, because the world seems exciting and interesting, while Heaven sounds boring and less than satisfying. How would the Course have us deal with the fear that giving up the world for God is a sacrifice?
  • What is the Course's perspective on the idea of change? by Greg Mackie. In the Course's view, changelessness is a fundamental attribute of reality, yet the Course also speaks of how we made the illusion of change and how the Holy Spirit uses the illusion of change to restore our awareness of our changeless reality. Confused? Greg sorts it all out in this Q & A.
  • If the world is an illusion, what's to stop people from attacking others? by Greg Mackie. What's to stop people from just attacking others with impunity to get what they want? One could argue that since it's all an illusion anyway, it doesn't really matter how we treat other people.
  • Unconditional love by Greg Mackie. How would the Course define "unconditional love"?
  • Laws of chaos by Greg Mackie. Workbook Lesson 76 says that we have made up the "laws" we think we live by, and we are really under no laws but God's. What are the "laws" we think we live by, what are God's laws, and how do we come to recognize God's laws?
  • Saving time by Greg Mackie. Most Course students are familiar with the idea that the Course's purpose is to save time. But how exactly does it save time? This Q & A offers answers drawn from the Course itself.
  • What happens to the ego when we die? by Greg Mackie. What happens to the ego after the death of the body? Does the ego have less "reality" after bodily death?
  • Should we try to understand the ego? by Greg Mackie. In T-7.VI.11, we read that the whole world of the ego is nothing, so we shouldn't try to understand it. But don't we want to understand a situation so we can see that it is not real?
