  • From Monkey Mind to the Mind of God The Course criticizes our current thoughts but then rather than disparaging thought altogether, urges us to find our real thoughts. What are these real thoughts? How exactly can we make contact with them?
  • The Teacher/Pupil Relationship We at the Circle have long maintained that the Manual for Teachers describes a teacher-pupil relationship in which a more experienced Course student acts as a mentor to the less-experienced student. In this article, Robert lays out the evidence for this relationship in the Manual.
  • An Editorial on Jesus Channeling Some observations of how we might view the many "channels" who claim to be channeling additional words from the author of the Course, Jesus.
  • How Long Until I Am Out of Here? This article deals with a question that is a source of anxiety and confusion for many students of the Course: How long will it take us to fully awaken from the dream? How long will it take us to leave illusions behind for good and return to our Heavenly home? In this article, Robert offers his own views on this question, based on his reading of the Course. The answer in a nutshell: We could awaken at any moment, but it will likely be a very long time before we choose to do so.
  • What is A Course in Miracles? An in-depth answer to this most fundamental of questions, which presents the Course as a magnificent synthesis of nine seemingly disparate categories: 1) a channeled spiritual teaching, 2) a modern educational Course, 3) a public communication from Jesus, 4) a psychological system, both theoretical and therapeutic, 5) an inspired scripture, in the lineage of the Bible 6) a path of enlightenment, 7) a philosophical system of ideas, 8) a literary work of art, and 9) a manual for how to heal others, heal relationships, and save the world.
  • How Jesus Applied the Course to the Lives of Helen and Bill The Course can seem so general and nonspecific. What would it look like fleshed out, applied in an actual human life? We find an answer to this question in the extensive guidance Jesus gave to Helen and Bill on how to apply the Course to their lives.
  • Summary and Commentary on "I Need do Nothing" This article summarizes the important but easily misunderstood section "I Need Do Nothing," discussing what exactly it means to do nothing (it may not be what you think).
  • What Does the Shroud of Turin Mean? This article explores the possible significance of the Shroud as "Jesus' own gospel, his way of communicating to posterity the same message he taught during his life." Inspired by the work of the Jesus Seminar and by the Course's interpretation of the crucifixion and resurrection.
  • The Course's Definition of "Idols" In common parlance we speak of idols as false gods that we look to for salvation. The Course takes this same usage and expands and deepens it, providing remarkable insight on the things we look to for salvation and why those things will not save us.
  • "When I Said...": Jesus Commenting in the Course on His Own Sayings in the Bible In the Course, Jesus sometimes refers to his sayings in the Bible. Do these references support those sayings, or suggest he never said them, or subtly correct the sayings, or all of the above?
