ACIMblog bulletin for June 2013:
High Above The Thorny Roads of Fear – Ken Wapnick article in the latest Lighthouse
Kenneth Wapnick consistently shares superb, concentrated insights at the heart of ACIM’s pure non-dual metaphysics, always with kindness, humor and insight. This most recent edition of the Foundation for A Course In Miracles (FACIM)‘s quarterly newsletter publication, The Lighthouse, with an article entitled “High Above The Thorny Roads of Fear” is no exception. Here’s a short excerpt from the excellent article (highly recommended):
“The miracle does not ask us to choose between the two—body or mind identification—but only to recognize that this is our choice: the well-traveled road of bodies that are doomed to suffer pain and loss, and then die (T-31.VI.2:3), or the less-traveled, mind-centered road Jesus leads us on that will carry us home on peaceful wings of love. We cannot take both paths.”
Forgiveness Offers Everything I Want: New ACIM studies book
Forgiveness Offers Everything I Want is the title of a video conversation with Susan Dugan and Bruce Rawles … and also the title of Susan’s outstanding new book (Forgiveness Offers Everything I Want; which is available in both paperback and Kindle versions). The book (which continues in the same humorous and lucid writing style as her prior – equally engaging – book, Extraordinary Ordinary Forgiveness) uses examples from her personal mindful forgiveness training as the springboard to look at how we can be happily wrong about our narrow, victim-centric and grievance-based interpretations and judgments and learn to generalize these life lessons we all share.
The Essential Metaphysics of A Course in Miracles – Denver, CO class series by Lyn Corona
I will soon upload the remaining three audios of Lyn Corona’s recent class at the Rocky Mountain Miracle Center in Denver entitled “The Essential Metaphysics of A Course in Miracles which concludes June 30, 2013. Here’s the audio recording from the first session, along with several other related audio recordings of Lyn. 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. These include several newer 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 has a weekly program on ACIM Gather Tuesdays from 7-8PM Eastern Time. Here’s the programming schedule. Lyn’s websites – both recommended! – are Becoming Learners Together and School of Reason. Here’s another recent video interview/conversation with Lyn Corona (via Google+ Hangouts).
Grateful for another year of your Support – ‘one year anniversary’ of The Geometry Code book
A year ago (on June 5, 2013), I launched the paperback version of The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation. The Kindle version of the paperback book followed a few months later last fall. While certainly not exclusively an “ACIM studies” book, ACIM was definitely a primary inspiration, and the addition of the backdrop of the seven ancient Hermetic Laws, a smattering of mystical geometry and even some dabbling in modern physics and it’s inexorable transformation in our mind to metaphysics. Thanks to one and all for your generous and continued support of the two versions from multiple countries, and to Gary Renard for the Foreward, and countless others for inspiration! I’ve had a number of kind reviews and endorsements. If you’d like to add yours, please send my way, and/or post on the Amazon review page here. You can find a free first chapter of the book (entitled “The Question of Identity: Two Thought Systems”) here.
