Manual for Teachers – Audiobook

Today we start with the publication of Part 1 and 2 of the Urtext Manuscripts of A Course in Miracles AUDIOBOOK.

PART 1

To teach is to demonstrate. There are only two thought systems, and you demonstrate that you believe one or the other is true all the time. From your demonstration others learn and so do you. The question is not whether you will teach, for in that there is no choice. The purpose of the course might be said to provide you with a means of choosing what you want to teach on the basis of what you want to learn.

PART 2 : The Characteristics of God’s Teachers

The surface traits of Godʹs teachers are not at all alike. They do not look alike to the bodyʹs eyes, they come from vastly different backgrounds, their experiences of the world vary greatly, and their superficial “personalities” are quite distinct. Nor at the beginning stages of their functioning as teachers of God, have they yet acquired the deeper characteristics that will establish them as what they are. God gives special gifts to His teachers because they have a special role in His plan for Atonement.

Christian Mystics Seminar – sign up

The 10th of November 2022 we make a start with the CHRISTIAN MYSTICS seminar. A seminar divided in six meetings where we discover the hidden treasures of lyrical expressions inspired by Communication with the Divine. From the bottom of the catacombs of Rome in the early hundreds, where Christians secretly met and expressed themselves, to the enlightening poetry and scripture given us in the nineteen hundreds. A broad range of expressions is shared. During this seminar period, you receive weekly a PDF with the writings of one of the mystics we discover. Some of the mystics you might know: Symeon, Meister Eckhart, Kierkegaard, and many more. A book that we will use is ‘Esoteric Christianity’, by Annie Besant. For this too will an PDF be available.

This is your chance to enjoy and discover the recognition you will have with the Christian Mystics. 

POETRY

What is this awesome mystery that is taking place within me? 

I can find no words to express it:
My poor hand is unable to capture it,
In describing the praise and glory that belong

To the One who is above all praise, 

And who transcends every word . . . 

My intellect sees what has happened, 

But it cannot explain it;

It can see, and wishes to explain,
But can find no word that suffices,
For what it sees is invisible and entirely formless,

Simple, completely uncompounded,
Unbounded in its awesome greatness.
What I have seen is the totality recapitulated as One, 

Received not in essence but by participation.
It is just as if you lit a flame from a live flame:
It is the entire flame you receive.

SYMEON, HYMNS OF DIVINE EROS, APPROX. YEAR 900 

What does the seminar cover?

When we come together in this seminar we will start with a meditation, using the words given us by one of the mystics and deeply letting ourselves be affected by it. Then a sharing takes place where poetry and context description is blend together to feel where and how and when the poetry was written. Another part is for you to share your mystics poetry – share with us what touches your heart.

When do we meet?

We meet on Thursdays at noon Central Time USA. The meetings are probably 1,5 hrs. FIND YOUR TIME HERE

286: The hush of Heaven holds my heart today

Lesson 286 “The hush of Heaven holds my heart today.”

“Father, how still today! How quietly do all things fall in place! This is the day that has been chosen as the time in which I come to understand the lesson that there is no need that I do anything. In You is every choice already made. In You has every conflict been resolved. In You is everything I hope to find already given me. Your peace is mine. My heart is quiet, and my mind at rest. Your Love is Heaven, and Your Love is mine.”

The stillness of today will give us hope that we have found the way, and travelled far along it, to a wholly certain goal. Today we will not doubt the end which God Himself has promised us. We trust in Him, and in our Self, Who still is one with Him.

God goes with you..

Monday Mindtraining

Today on Day 27 of the Awakening Intensive, we come together to get in touch with our true salvation. We go to the root of human suffering and decide to leave such foolishness behind. In this class we use lesson 41: God goes with me wherever I go, of the (Urtext Manuscripts) of A Course in Miracles.

281: I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts

Lesson 281 “I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts.”
 “Father, Your Son is perfect.  When he thinks that he is hurt in any way, it is because he has forgotten who he is,  and that he is as You created him.  Your Thoughts can only bring me happiness.  If ever I am sad or hurt or ill, I have forgotten what You think, and put my little, meaningless ideas in place of where Your Thoughts belong, and where They are.  I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts.  The Thoughts I think with You can only bless.  The Thoughts I think with You alone are true.”

 I will not hurt myself today.  For I am far beyond all pain. My Father placed me safe in Heaven, watching over me.  And I would not attack the Son He loves, for what He loves is mine to
love as well.

280: What limits can I lay upon God’s Son?

Lesson 280 “What limits can I lay upon Godʹs Son?”

Whom God created limitless is free. I can invent imprisonment for him, but only in illusions, not in truth. No Thought of God has left Its Fatherʹs Mind. No Thought of God is limited at all. No Thought of God but is forever pure. Can I lay limits on the Son of God, whose Father willed that he be limitless, and like Himself in freedom and in love?

“Today let me give honor to Your Son, for thus alone I find the way to You. Father, I lay no limits on the Son You love, and You created limitless. The honor that I give to him is Yours, and what is Yours belongs to me as well.”

276: The Word of God is given me to speak

Lesson 276 “The Word of God is given me to speak.”

What is the Word of God? “My Son is pure, and holy as Myself.” And thus did God become the Father of the Son He loves, for thus was he created. This the Word His Son did not create with Him, because in this His Son was born. Let us accept His Fatherhood, and all is given us. Deny we were created in His Love and we deny our Self, to be unsure of who we are, of who our Father is, and for what purpose we have come. And yet, we need but to acknowledge Him Who gave His Word to us in our creation, to remember Him and so recall our Self.

Father, Your Word is mine. And it is this that I would speak to all my brothers, who are given me to cherish as my own, as I am loved and blessed and saved by You.”

275: God’s healing Voice protects all things today

Lesson 275 “Godʹs healing Voice protects all things today.”

Let us today attend the Voice of God, Which speaks an ancient lesson, no more true today than any other day. Yet has this day been chosen as the time when we will seek and hear and learn and understand. Join me in hearing. For the Voice of God tells us of things we cannot understand alone, nor learn apart. It is in this that all things are protected. And in this the healing of the Voice of God is found.

Your healing Voice protects all things today, and so I leave all things to You. I need be anxious over nothing. For Your Voice will tell me what to do, and where to go; to whom to speak, and what to say to him; what thoughts to think; what words to give the world. The safety that I bring is given me. Father, Your Voice protects all things through me.”

273: The stillness of the peace of God is mine

Lesson 273 “The stillness of the peace of God is mine.”

Perhaps we are now ready for a day of undisturbed tranquility. If this is not yet feasible, we are content and even more than satisfied to learn how such a day can be achieved. If we give way to a disturbance, let us learn how to dismiss it and return to peace. We need but tell our minds, with certainty, “The stillness of the peace of God is mine,” and nothing can intrude upon the peace that God Himself has given to His Son.

Father, Your peace is mine. What need have I to fear that anything can rob me of what You would have me keep? I cannot lose Your gifts to me. And so the peace You gave Your Son is with me still, in quietness and in my own eternal love for You.”

Day 1: Up to the mountaintop

Start here:

Our goal is but to follow in the way that leads to You. We have no goal but this. What could we want but to remember You? What could we seek but our Identity?

These are some of the lines in today’s lesson 256, God is my only goal I have today. The start of the 40 Day Awakening Intensive is today at noon Central Time USA. You are invited to go on the mountaintop with us. Many will gather for this possibility to listen, listen to the still small voice in you. Join us or start taking time to go within and have your true Identity revealed. Experience for a moment peace. Feel for a moment the love for God and your brother. Expect a miracle of revelation. This is your birth right, you are entitled to miracles.
