SEPTEMBER THEME
ANGELS and OTHER THOUGHTS OF GOD
Comforting Symbolism in 
A Course in Miracles

A primary purpose of A Course in Miracles is to help us uncover the darkness we have made real and then buried in our mind. These dark thoughts seem to take on all kinds of "hideous" and "desirable" shapes and forms within the world that is the projection of those hidden thoughts. The journey back to remembering Who we truly are can be frightening indeed, and so Jesus has offered us many symbols of light and comfort along the way, to reassure us that we do not journey alone and that we really do want the Course's destination for us—the real world. Since we believe we are bodies, the Course uses many words that suggest concrete, symbolic forms that we may find reassuring, such as gardens, flowers, blades of grass and budding trees, birds, dancing brooks and streams, mighty companions, and even angels—these being reflections of right-mindedness. However, these are all merely symbols coming within the world's dualistic framework that remind us of their source—the content of light reflected in our right mind—the pathway of light that we will learn to desire more and more as we make our way up the ladder home to the Oneness and Truth we have never left.

Since you believe that you are separate, Heaven presents itself to you as separate, too. Not that it is in truth, but
that the link that has been given you to join the truth may reach to you through what you understand (T-25.1.5:1-2).

For the month of September, we are offering a number of Kenneth's works at 25% off, as well as the Featured Product, related to understanding the relationship of symbol to source. 

Awaken from the Dream:
A Presentation of A Course in Miracles

This presentation of the basic ideas of A Course in Miracles serves both as an introduction to those new to the Course, as well as offering its long-time students a unique approach to the Course's teaching of "not making the error real." This important principle cautions the student against using pseudo-problems as a defense against the true problem: separation. Beginning with an original cosmological myth, "Awaken from the Dream" emphasizes the application of this central teaching—the foundation of forgiveness—to our everyday lives, in a spirit of non-opposition and love.

The Quiet Answer: Asking the Holy Spirit

This workshop centers on the meaning of asking the Holy Spirit for help, our fears associated with asking the right question—“What am I?”—and hearing the quiet answer. The pseudo-questioning within the ego's thought system is seen as perpetuating the real problem—the belief in separation—while keeping the real answer—the Atonement principle—forever hidden. The quiet answer of Jesus undoes the dream of specialness by bringing us back to the decision-making part of our minds, where we can choose the holy instant and then hear and become one with the true answer: the Love of God that is beyond all worlds and symbols.

Watching with Angels

Built around the theme of Christmas, passages from A Course in Miracles, and Helen Schucman's poetry, this 2012 seminar focuses on stillness and silence as the means of our being reborn as Christ, our true Self. Watching with angels means looking non-judgmentally at the wrong mind with the loving thoughts of God supporting us. Thus, letting go of the ego's "meager treasures" that filled our minds with static, allows us at last to be still and hear the angels' silent song of awakening:

Here at the altar lay all this aside
To let the door to Heaven open wide
And hear the angels sing of peace on earth,
For Christmas is the time of your rebirth.

Climbing the Ladder Home

In this workshop, the process of leaving and then returning to our home in Heaven is explained in the context of the self-concepts we cherish—their purpose and their undoing. Each step down the ladder is identified as a self-concept requiring denial of the preceding step; and the climb back up the ladder is explained as the process of disengaging step by step from all the ego's concepts of self by turning to Jesus and correcting the mistake at each rung of the ladder. Material from "Self-Concept versus Self," in Chapter 31 in the text, is the basis of much of the discussion.

Duality as Metaphor in A Course in Miracles

This workshop is a comprehensive study of what is to be taken literally and what is to be taken metaphorically in A Course in Miracles, and the distortions that result from not recognizing this difference between symbol and fact. This is explained in the context of the metaphysics of duality and separation, and what Jesus teaches about the world, joining, forgiveness, prayer, the Holy Spirit, himself, and the only reality: the non-dualistic Oneness of God and Christ.

"A Touch of Heaven" 

In Lesson 157 Jesus tells us, "Today it will be given you to feel a touch of Heaven, though you will return to paths of learning." In the text he tells us, "Everyone on earth has formed special relationships, and although this is not so in Heaven, the Holy Spirit knows how to bring a touch of Heaven to them here."   (T-15.V.8:1) The discussion in this class focuses on learning how we can bring "a touch of Heaven" into every part of our lives and relationships. This requires the daily practice of forgiveness and kindness, and the use of all things in our world, whether they are painful or not, difficult situations or not, as ways of helping us heal our minds of the mistaken beliefs that we have chosen as replacements for reality and truth. This process leads gradually to the transformation of our minds, which then become the touchstones "for the holy Thoughts of God."

From this day forth, your ministry takes on a genuine devotion, and a glow that travels from your fingertips to those you touch and blesses those you look upon. A vision reaches everyone you meet, and everyone you think of, or who thinks of you. For your experience today will so transform your mind that it becomes the touchstone for the holy Thoughts of God.

The Stillness of Silence

This one-day seminar from 2011 is structured around two poems of Helen Schucman: “Conversion” and “Awake in Stillness.” These are the framework within which the ego’s raucous shrieking is compared to the Holy Spirit’s soft stillness. Throughout A Course in Miracles we are asked to look at the ego’s thought system of specialness without judgment, thereby exposing its purpose of keeping the memory of God from dawning on our minds. This process of forgiveness clears our minds to hear the still, small Voice calling us home, along with all God’s Sons.

The Son of God
Has come to join you now. His shining hand
Is on your shoulder. And God’s silent Voice
Speaks ceaselessly of Heaven. You will hear
His single message calling to His Own
From His abiding place, to wake in God.
