Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

A Course in Miracles has 2 parts, the text (600 pages), and the lessons (500 pages).

 

There are 365 lessons. It takes a fair deal of tenacity to keep going beyond the first 70 or so lessons, but even 30 lessons are well worth the effort, because of the personal changes experienced.

It takes about 5 minutes morning and then again in the evening, for the first 30 lessons. The early lessons do not require much mental effort beyond remembering to do them for about 5 minutes. It is much easiler than trying to meditate, but the ideas presented may defy commonsense. You are not asked to accept or believe, only to do it.

 

Everything is available online:

And of course we have the lovely 'Manual For Teachers' ~

The Course explains 'we are all teachers and students together'.

I like the Manual's Chapter 4 ~ 'What are the Characteristics of God's Teachers?'
Years ago, I had the list printed out and blown up to A2 size so I could read them from my wall every day.

The characteristics are...

Trust

Honesty

Tolerance

Gentleness

Joy

Defenselessness

Generosity

Patience

Faithfulness

Openmindedness
