ACIMblog bulletin for April 2013:
An interview/conversation with Lyn Corona about her history with ACIM
I recently recorded an interview/conversation with Lyn Corona (via Google+ Hangouts). Lyn talked about an early mystical experience which led to a lifetime of spiritual inquiry, finding ACIM in the mid 1970’s and much more. Lyn’s websites – both recommended! – are Becoming Learners Together and School of Reason.
Here are some recent audio recordings by Lyn Corona from ACIM Gather on Paltalk Express. To listen and/or participate live on these audio sessions, visit the ACIMblog Resources page for more details. Lyn recently started a weekly program on ACIM Gather Tuesdays from 7-8PM Eastern Time. Here’s the programming schedule.
All or nothing? (A neat photo found on FaceBook recently)
The who we think we are – nuthin’ – doesn’t even register on the zoomed in photo; we’re radar blip wannabes … yet WHAT we really are – Everything – dwarfs this surreal cosmos. 🙂
Another example of superb blog posts about ACIM by Susan Dugan
Why I Don’t Like My Spiritual Discipline – an article by D. Patrick Miller
Here’s a fun and astute article about my chosen forgiveness mentoring system (and I imagine it’s likely to be yours, too if you’re reading this) … As Ken Wapnick points out, if most students realized what ACIM ultimately leads to, they’d never pick it up. If we don’t notice the resistance to dropping our attachment to a grief-sustaining surreal self we’ve invested in on a cosmic scale – and thrown away the key to the projection room that sustains it – we’re probably either heavily sedated or in major ‘bliss-ninny’ denial. The ‘inconvenient truth’ aspect of this introspective teaching is simultaneously our greatest challenge (when we attempt to use ego to undo itself) or our greatest opportunity (when we let go of our inner book-pitching tendencies and see the humor in our pathetic attempts at happiness.) Thanks to D. Patrick Miller of Fearless Books also for publishing the book (Disappearance of the Universe) that catalyzed a headlong plunge back into ACIM’s non-dual metaphysics for me in 2007 after too long a hiatus. 🙂
