Book Description

"A Course in Miracles" is a complete self-study spiritual thought system. As a three-volume curriculum consisting of a "Text", "Workbook for Students", and "Manual for Teachers", it teaches that the way to universal love and peace through forgiving others. The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy.
The "Text" presents the theory of the Course and has built into its study the development of the experience of forgiveness that is the Course's goal for the student.
The "Workbook for Students" includes 365 lessons, one for each day of the year. It begins the process of changing the student's mind and perception, though it is not intended to bring one's learning to completion.
The "Manual for Teachers" is written in question-and-answer form and provides answers to some of the more likely questions a student might ask.
Also included are Supplements to the Course: "Psychotherapy: Purpose, Process and Practice" and "Song of Prayer"

5.0 out of 5 stars Deepest and most profound book I've ever read January 2, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
11/28/2012: revised to reduce annoying CAPS, and add explanatory notes
---
This is the deepest and most profound book I've ever read. And I have a ridiculously large collection of books.
It also contains breathtaking concepts, that resonate with the simple, ironic beauty characteristic of profound universal truth. Even the physicists, cosmologists, mathematicians have remarked they use the same criteria of beauty and elegance as a helpful evaluation to help vet new candidate laws of nature.

ACIM presents spiritual truths so concise and raw, so pure, that one must often spend days or weeks (or more) studying + praying + meditating upon a single passage. Then one may begin to achieve first insights into a passage, and begin to apply it directly to one's life. With insight revealed by each passage, you'll become more and more aware of the miraculous spiritual world which is true life (all else being false dream).

This book DOES teach miracles. I will offer you an example.

In everyday life you cross paths with countless strangers. Many you meet for a moment, and never again. For example, you'll exchange a few casual words of courtesy with the grocery store cashier, as your items are rung up. Somehow it became "normal" to view such interactions as inconsequential; most of us eventually became a bit numb to the souls around us. We don't notice their spiritual and emotional needs. We forgot how to truly see others and to love.

Haven't we had enough of "normal" mundane existence!

Let's now re-imagine our "inconsequential" daily interactions in a new, deeply spiritual and profound way, transforming these interactions into most consequential miracles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A course in "mind training," not behavior November 17, 2002
Format:Hardcover
A COURSE IN MIRACLES is an astonishing set of three books that are now available in one combined volume printed on "bible-thin" paper. For those unfamiliar with "the Course" (as "students" are inclined to call it), it is not a class, a cult, or a religion. The Course is set up in the format of a class, with a Text, a Workbook For Students, and a Manual for Teachers and is primarily intended to be studied on one's own. But many students like to form "study groups." Neither approach to studying the Course is "right" or "wrong."
The Course is a non-dual system of spiritual psychotherapy. Non-dual means that there is no "good" or "bad," there are no opposites. A common mistake people make in interpreting the non-duality of A COURSE IN MIRACLES is to think it means that only the "good" things in the world are real and that the "bad" things aren't. The Course could therefore be seen as just an extension of "New Age Positivism." A next logical step in this misunderstanding of Course theory is to focus on the "good" things in the world and to be contemptuous of those who do not agree with you about what is good. This is where we can get caught in the trap of attempting to "enlighten" others. What the Course's non-duality really means is that the very concept of "good" and "bad" is an illusion. This points to the profound metaphysical teaching that our personal identities themselves are illusions. And since the Course aims at "removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence" (Introduction, p. 2), it could even be thought of as a type of "negativism." Ultimately, Love is all that is real. But the Course teaches that this world was not made by Love and is not a loving place. Trying to make this world loving is futile.

Of the several Kindle versions of A Course In Miracles available this is by far the best one. It has a working table of contents and includes the full text of the combined books that make up the CIM including Text, Teacher's Manual, Workbook, Clarification of Terms and Supplements. In case this review gets combined with other reviews for different versions of the book as sometimes happen I'll mention I'm referring to the version that has an ASIN of B0018A01L4.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Treasure For Those Who Are Ready July 15, 2002
Format:Hardcover
There has been a great deal written about ACIM and it all pales in comparison with the experience of the Course itself. That would include this introduction!
ACIM is not for everyone. As the Course says, many are called but few choose to respond. If you're ready, your soul will be hungry and ACIM will come to you. Read the Introduction carefully and see how it resonates with your Spirit. There should be no doubt if you're ready.
ACIM requires dedication and commitment. There is so much information in each paragraph of text that frequently one must stop and contemplate each sentence in turn! It is counter-productive to read on past sections one has not internalized, so patience is a must.
There is a meditation sequence that requires a minimum of one year to complete. Even if you are an experienced meditator, you will probably take a quantum leap in your spiritual awareness and for the first time comprehend the true nature of meditation. This meditation is required in order to grasp the underlying message of the Course and the ability to put oneself instantly into the Presence of God is emphasized throughout the text.
ACIM is a two-way street. Along with the peace and confidence that accompanies learning to see the world through the eyes of Christ comes the awesome responsibility of becoming a Teacher of God.
