Studying a Course in Miracles

ACIM-3rdEd_hardcvr_wSeal-LgI have done this before. I got 300 pages into it, of 1500 pages and had to stop for personal reasons. I’m going to start all over. This is an incredible book. In many ways this is my “Spiritual Bible”. Now don’t freak out on me please. You all know how much I love, worship, and praise God. I believe and study/read my American Standard Bible everyday. I read it at lunch time while I eat. It’s my reflection time to pray in the middle of my day and give thanks to my Lord and Savior. This is the book where I have expanded my mind on new spiritual ideas. The one that has opened me up to life. To new ideas that I have never thought of.

A friend of mine from Chicago recommended this to me years ago. I first read Marianne Williamson’s Return to Love book. Then found this. Her book is based on this one. How this book changed her life. This book changed my life too. Studying it reminds me of when I first read it. It’s a hard read. It took me months to get all the way through it. Then I read it again to understand and highlight the sentences that I loved.

Studying it here will allow me to take it apart and really put thought into what it is saying. And how I am interpreting it. There are so very bold ideas here. Somethings that I don’t even agree with. And that’s why I like it. Anything that challenges me is something I go towards more. I love a good challenge. I love to learn. I hope you all take the time to read this. I’m going page by page to make it easier for myself. That way I can read one page, write about it and let you all comment on what your thoughts are.

I hope you enjoy this book. It’s going to take us months to get through it but I’m really excited to start!
