ACIMblog bulletin for October 2013:
Love Has Forgotten No One – Gary Renard’s new book
The long-awaited 3rd book by Gary Renard, Love Has Forgotten No One, is available on Kindle and in paperback. It was well worth the wait! If you haven’t already read Gary’s first two books, I recommend reading (or re-reading) them first, since the third book builds on the foundation of pure non-dualistic thought that was established in the first two books. If you’re looking for something ‘new and different’ (from the other 2 books), you (we’re talking ‘individual’ you, here) might be disappointed, but for the Self we really are, it’s a glorious presentation of the ideas take us home from the dream we never really entered. Hooray for inspired repetition – the content is the same brilliance, although the form is now in the context of Gary’s more recent experience and numerous fascinating connections – from our friends Gary, Arten and Pursah! 🙂
Here’s a short review by fellow ACIM enthusiast of Gary’s work ‘Giddyup Mikey’ Mike Lemieux.
Sep 2013 LightHouse
The Sep. 2013 edition of FACIM‘s quarterly bulletin, The Lighthouse, if you haven’t already read it, is now available here. Always loaded with superb insights and highly recommended! This edition’s feature article by Ken Wapnick is entitled: “THE TREACHERY OF IMAGES”—Part I: Confusing Symbols with Source, Form with Content” … Here is a short excerpt:
“Herein lies the treachery of images or symbols, for they seem to be what they are not, seducing us into believing that an illusion (really, an hallucination) is actually true and is out there to be perceived. And so the purpose of the world: “Thus were specifics made” (W-pI.161.3:1). This leaves us as the “face of innocence” that suffers at the hands of people and events beyond our control.”
Doug Sparks presentation and workshop at Rocky Mountain Miracle Center
Doug Sparks gave a morning presentation and workshop at RMMC on October 13, 2013; I’ll have the audio from both of these (and others in my recording backlog) uploaded here soon; both excellent. It’s always a joy to attend talks given by this long-time student of Ken Wapnick, as he shares – with warm and insight – the depth of the importance of being kindly mindful as we apply our forgiveness lessons. Doug is giving a workshop in Boulder, Colorado, entitled “Hope Springs External – The Ego’s Favorite Ploy” on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013 from 10AM-4PM; contact Nieca Sparks at 303-570-7737 for details and registration.

ACIM-related articles, websites and blogs of interest
Here’s a new in-depth article entitled “Moving from fear into Real Peace” by Dave Van Dyke about going beyond the ‘dark night of the soul’ (ego’s forte) to the enduring comfort we all know awaits us, despite our resistance. Dave shares a genuine, heart-felt and ‘right on’ essay with us. It fits perfectly with one of my favorite sections about going past the “dark night of the soul” in Chap. 31, section IV (The Real Alternative) to seeing ALL of Spirit in everyone and everything… I’m paraphrasing, but that’s what I get from it … Looking past ego’s desolate façade – with help from our Inner Kindness Teacher – to the unchanging beauty and Love within All!
