  • "Resign Now as Your Own Teacher"An Excerpt from Reading and Commentary for T-12.V, "The Sane Curriculum" An Excerpt from Reading and Commentary for T-12.V, "The Sane Curriculum": This is commentary on a great section in the Text, one that likens us to learning handicapped students who are in no position to design their own curriculum. A powerful argument for the need for a curriculum—i.e., the Course—not designed by us.
  • Sacred Tenets of Egoic Relationship A light look at the rules we live by in our relationships.
  • Self-Esteem in A Course in Miracles So much of what we do is a search for self-esteem, a search to feel better about ourselves. How does A Course in Miracles see self-esteem? Where does it really come from? The answers may surprise you.
  • The Importance of Relationships in A Course in Miracles Interpersonal relationships in this world are "the means of return" according to the Course, but Course students often have difficulty reconciling this with the Course's metaphysics. If the world is an illusion, why would relationships in this world matter? Robert shows that the Course's emphasis on relationships is actually an expression of its metaphysics: Relationships are part of the very fabric of Heaven, so our earthly relationships are meant to be a reflection of Heaven's perfect relationships.
  • How Do We Spend Our Days After the Workbook? If you are a student of A Course in Miracles and have completed the Workbook, what do you do afterward? The epilogue to the Workbook gives the impression that you just sail along under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. However, we receive a much more specific picture of what to do after the Workbook in Section 16 of the Manual for Teachers, "How Should the Teacher of God Spend His Day?" The general rules laid out in this section provide a great snapshot of how Jesus sees more mature students living his course.
  • "The Rules That Promise You a Happy Day" Greg examines the "Rules for Decision" (T-30.I), describes his experience of practicing them, and shares the benefits this practice has brought to his life.
  • Should We "Should" on Ourselves? "Don't 'should' on yourself." It is a truism that we must avoid telling ourselves that we "should" or "shouldn't" do something, lest we make ourselves feel guilty. However, A Course in Miracles "shoulds" on us with abandon, using the word over three hundred times. In this article, Greg shows how we can unload the painful baggage from this loaded word and use it in a Course-inspired way, a way that brings happiness instead of guilt.
  • This Is a Course for Miracle Workers: Please Clock In Why did Jesus dictate A Course in Miracles? The answer is right in its title: to train us to become miracle workers, people who extend miracles of true perception to others in thought, word, and deed. Drawing from the early dictation (including the Urtext), Greg presents the Course as a vocational training manual for the joyous full-time job of miracle worker.
  • There Is No Sin A Course in Miracles talks a great deal about sin. Yet the Course has transformed this concept, acknowledging its power in this world, while denying that it's actually real. In this article, Robert explores how A Course in Miracles has reframed the traditional notion of sin.
  • 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.
