This week, we read from and discuss Lessons 189 and 190. Noone wants to suffer pain, but we have forgotten how much power we have over the experience of it. As stated in lesson 190 (I choose the joy of God instead of Pain), "Pain is a sign illusions reign in place of truth." How can we let those illusions go and welcome truth? By changing our thoughts-""It is your thoughts alone that cause you pain." As we change our thoughts, we change our world, both inner and outer. The very world we perceive is a "representation of our thoughts." These metaphysical principles are basic to the teachings of the Course. And we can truly benefit from them as far more than just pretty intellectual exercises as we share them and practice them.So call in tonight and experience the healing and peace that comes from actually sharing them --experience your Self--radiant in this holy joy...forever."
The Course in Miracles is a powerful transformational tool to assist us in changing our perceptions of this world so that we might experience greater peace in every experience and every encounter. The daily lessons gently undo our habitual, conflict-laden ways of thinking and of seeing the world and help us to acquire a new kind of perception based on love and foregiveness.
Together we will explore how we can apply the wisdom of the Course in our daily lives, and become more availalbe to help, heal and uplift others and ourselves. I have been a student and teacher of the Course for over 20 years and love more than anything exploring these these teachings with others. I look forward to sharing the journey to joy through the Course with you whether you are brand new to it or a seasoned student.
In tonight's episode,we will explore the text in Chapter 30 about the "the only purpose" of the world. It will come as no surprize to Course students that it is forgiveness. And we will learn that it is in joining with our brothers and sisters in shared purpose that we become aware of "the real world' and the will we share with God.
We will also read and discuss Lessons 168 and 169 in the Workbook on that mysterious subject of grace. Please join us and call in with your thoughts on these topics or anything else going on in your world.
Join us tonight as we review and discuss two startling and provocative lessons in the Course in Miracles; Lessons 135 and 136. How might we actually be making ourselves sick when we set up defenses and make plans to protect and defend ourselves against percieved threats? And what is it that we feel is threatened and needs defense? How can we learn invite perfect, effortless health and happiness into our lives? The answers are linked to what we believe our "self" really is; do we accept a bodily identification, and therefore see ourselves as fragile, limited and easily threatened, or do we identify ourselves as Mind--unlimited, one eternally with Source and with every Mind in creation? And what could possibly be meant by "The healed mind does not plan"? (Lesson 135) Explore with me how it is that our true safety and freedom lie in our defenselessness. I hope you will call in and say hello and share your thoughts.
In tonight's show, we will read from and discuss Chapter8--"The Journey Back," as well as briefly discuss this past weeks Review lessons 201 through 205. We are truly not alone here; the "light of the world " goes with us. Does it ever feel like when you step forward towards God's will/your will for yourself you are beset with difficulties or fears/? That is because the ego finds it so threatening to realize it is being left behind that it becomes retaliative. This can be very uncomfortabel for us! But we can take comfort knowing who walks with us and leads us on this path to our /God's will--our elder brother the Christ. As we learn to join our minds more and more with him who has overcome and left behind the ego already, we will be free from the seeming attacks of the frightened ego mind. We will return more and more easily to the joy and peace that is God's will for us.

Can something aimed to save our life really save it when it also imposes a threat to it? The (stress) survival mode response embodies this contradiction. Modern medicine has now made it clear that there are detrimental effects of stress on health. Must we now survive the threat posed by our very own instinct of survival? Clearly this approach cannot save us as it only imposes more threat.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos and the guidance of Lessons 131-158 of A Course in Miracles, we attempt to move beyond survival and attack, exploring the cause of stress and why survival as a plan to defend ourselves from danger and death only reinforces the fearful belief that we are weak and vulnerable bodies/egos; thereby increasing the stress associated with the fear that only the strongest or fittest will survive.
Lesson 135 says, “Enslavement of the body to the plans the unhealed mind sets up to save itself must make the body sick. It is not free to be the means of helping in a plan which far exceeds it own protection, and which needs its service for a little while. In this capacity is health assured.”
We look at Lesson 136 which says, “Sickness is a defense against the truth” and why “No one can heal unless he understands what purpose sickness seems to serve. Being causeless and without a meaningful intent of any kind, it cannot be at all. When this is seen, healing is automatic.”

The problems we confront in this world seem so numerous, so varied and so complex, we often become dismayed and depressed by the endless parade of problems to be solved. In this episode, we will discuss Lessons 79 and 80 which consider the problems of the world in a different light. The Course teaches that there is really only ONE problem with ONE solution. All problems, the Course says are really the same. We will achieve peace as we recognize this marvelous and elegant truth. What is that problem? Join our discussion tonight and find out. Please call in to share your insights, questions and comments.

Tonight we will explore a group of lessons from the Workbook (Lessons 100 through 118) pertaining to the huge role of happiness in the life of a teacher of God (that is you and me!) In the words of the Course, "Without your joy, His joy is incomplete." How can we experience greater awareness of the happiness is that is God's will for us? That is in fact, His gift to us and is already within us? What are the keys to happiness and why is it such an important part of our very function here to be happy? Join me for a discussion of how to open our minds, hearts and lives to much greater happiness.
In tonight's episode, we will explore some of the Course's most beautiful lessons, Lesson's 93 through 96. Nothing you have ever done or thought has changed or altered you, for you remain as perfect as you were created. In these, lessons, we are encouraged not just to entertain this as an intellectual concept, but to really feel and reach "our one Self, Which is united with Its Creator." We examine the painful self-concepts that the ego mind would have us believe about our nature, and we choose to let them go and experience the peace that comes from aligning our thinking with the thoughts of God, the thoughts that remind us that "light and peace and joy abide in us," and in every one else. Join us for this uplifting exploration of who we really are.

When you felt unhappy, were you told, “You should be grateful. Others have it worse.”? Are you supposse to believe if others suffer more than you, that is cause to be thankful?
Today, with Eloisa Ramos and Lessons 187-200 of A Course in Miracles, we explore our gratitude definition and why without our recognition of oneness it will be insincere.
Lesson 195 says, “Gratitude is a lesson hard to learn for those who look upon the world amiss. The most that they can do is see themselves as better off than others…Love makes no comparisons. And gratitude can only be sincere if it be joined to love.”
To see the world “amiss” is to make fear real and perceive the world, and others, as our enemies making love impossible. ACIM teaches that our only function is to heal our mind, and forgiveness is the means given to us whose mind sleeps and dreams of fear, separation, sacrifice and condemnation.
Lesson 195 teaches, “When your forgiveness is complete you will have total gratitude, for you will see that everything has earned the right to love by being loving, even as your Self.”
In oneness we recognize giving is receiving and we are given everything. And so in Lesson 197 we learn, “It can be but my gratitude I earn.”
Today with Lesson 195 we walk the way of love, thanking “our Father for one thing alone; that we are separate from no living thing, and therefore one with Him.”
