A Course in Miracles
About “A Course In Miracles”
A Course in Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual thought system. As a three-volume curriculum consisting of a Textbook, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers, it teaches that the way to universal love and peace is by undoing guilt through forgiving others.
A Course in Miracles states, "its goal for you is happiness and peace." (Text, p. 241) (T-13.II.7:1) The Text also explains the basis for fear and guilt, and how they can be overcome through miracles, which are defined as maximal "expressions of love." The miracle is defined as the shift in perception from fear to love.
A Course in Miracles also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are “many thousands."
A Course in Miracles therefore is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion. It has been called a course in spiritual psychotherapy
As the Course itself says, “A universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary.”
This means you are not asked to give up anything in this world but rather allow all your thoughts about your life and the world to be bathed in love.
The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy.
This Course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way: “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God."
