When I first got this book, it was sitting on the shelf for about five years before I was in the right state of mind to begin working with it. When I did finally get to working with it, I was faced with a problem out of which I had no clue how to get out, so I gave my best shot to this book. I was totally, wholeheartedly committed to working with it and the results paid off beyond my wildest dreams. I have read many helpful book in my lifetime, but none has such a profound and lasting effect as this one.
Working with A Course in Miracles never ends, but the most dramatic changes I have experienced were during that first year, when my perception and experience of the world turned on its head and the world, my relationship to it, my experience of the world, has permanently changed.
It's been 11 years since that time, but A Course in Miracles is still alive and well in my mind.
There are people who have picked this book, invested half-hearted attempt in working with it and who got seemingly nothing out of it. Unless you're willing to invest yourself wholeheartedly in working with A Course in Miracles, it's unlikely you'll experience the promises of the book.
Sometimes people join groups and go on asking others for advice as to how they should work with this book. All the instructions are in this book. There is no one on the outside who will help you to get through the Course. This is an inner journey and to travel it successfully, you have to be willing to travel deep within - not with parts of you holding onto the outer world. Only when you are completely willing to drop the outside, will you make it to the other side, in this inner journey. The treasures are hidden deep within. Dive in and discover the wonders that are hidden within you.
