You Share God’s Mind. Why not Use it?

A Course in Miracles, like many spiritual practices, teaches that we are one with God and share the mind of God. What stands between our minds being ruled by our egos and our sharing the mind (and love) of God, is that the ego has convinced us that our earthly identity is the real us. The truth is, all it takes for us to utilize the mind of God is modifying our thought patterns. This doesn’t mean as we become accomplished in our spiritual discipline we become God, it means that we grow into the ability to understand, love and feel compassionate for others as God does. What derails us is that our human mind first attempts to perceive what God is and then model our behavior on it. But this can’t happen because God is beyond perception. God can be experienced but cannot be perceived. What we’ve been doing is attempting to perceive what God is and then modeling our behavior to fit that image. That’s a path we really can’t navigate. Instead, we simply have to locate the mind of God inside us and let it be our guiding light. All that takes is modifying how we think and subsequently act. It doesn’t require that we become enlightened. It’s simply how much we practice.

-------------

It is not necessary to read the book or have any prior knowledge of A Course in Miracles to participate and appreciate our discussions. This Course is appropriate for beginners as well as the experienced. For those who do want to study this in the book or online, please refer to the Workbook for Students, beginning with Lesson 42 God is my strength. Vision is His gift through Lesson 46, God is the Love in which I forgive, which in my edition are from pages 65 through 74.

A NOTE ABOUT THE COURSE...

Please note that although the word "Course" is in the title, you do not have to sign up for a series. Each meeting is an entity unto its own, so please come join us at any time.  Your $10 admittance goes towards the rent and overhead of the center.

    We aren't following the book in any order. Each session stands on its own. There is no "level" to this class so a few people know the Course very well and some have never even opened the book.
    The best way to see how this works is to go to the website and look up past meetings.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
