SORT BY Relevancy
When we realize that nothing outside of our own thoughts can seem to hurt us, we can be gripped with terror. It was easier to project our worries onto the world and believe that something outside of us was attacking us. But this moment is also one of great release, for in it we can let go of our fear of God --what the COurse calls the final obstacle to overcome--and call on God's love to save us from the illusions. We can step into peace--our birthright as children of a loving Creator. This is what we learn in lesson 196. Join me tonight as we explore some of the comforting lessons of release and awakening from the Course. You are and always will remain jsut as God created you; free, creative, happy and whole. Let's clear away together any obstacles that may reamain in us that block our awareness of the LOVE that we truly are.
"I will forgive and this will disappear." Such is the lesson God would have us learn to free ourselves from every form of suffering and in all our tribulations. (Lesson 193) Tonight we explore the way to peace through self forgiveness. Our forgivenss is the "key that opens Heaven's gate." In the text of the Course, we learned that sometimes as we learn to stop blaming and judging others and the world outside of us, if we are not careful and aware, there can be a tendancy to then blame and condemn ourselves, to turn those false projections on ourselves. THIS IS EQUALLY FALSE. We are as innocent as the brothers and sisters we forgive. Tonight we will read from Lessons 193 and 198 and remind oursleves that "Only my condemnation injures me. Only my own forgiveness sets us free." (198) Let's commit ourselves to forgiving not only the world outside of us, but ourselves as well. We have all erred and made mistakes. But God does not condemn mistakes --of any kind--nor need we.
Sometimes on our journey we lose sight of our greatest Source. We can get thrown off or distracted and we might question ourselves. We may question whether God is really there for us.
The Course teaches us that once we choose God, the decision is a promise that holds strong and unbreakable even when we don't focus on Him steadily.We know that life doesn't always seem consistent, and sometimes we veer away from God.
The Course reminds us that God is always here. It doesn't matter how close we feel to Him or where and how long we are on our journey, God is here with us - always.

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."
A Course in Miracles is a deep self study. Not everyone is called to take on such a thought system that requires such a commitment to awareness of one's thoughts and behaviors.
Join me, the creator of Seeker Unscripted, a show that currently holds a weekly gathering of like minds of the Course, that draws students and seekers into a path of self discovery that when tread upon - will certainly find Truth.
If you're a student of the Course, you will learn to ask for guidance to salvation. You don't have to read the book to appreciate what we share on our shows.
The Guide to Salvation is asking the Holy Spirit to guide us on our path. We will talk about allowing the connection with Holy Spirit to guide us in everything we do - and to communicate with others both our learning and whatever messages we are asked to deliver.
If you have the Complete Edition of A Course in Miracles, we pulled our topic from Chapter 5, section 3, "The Guide to Salvation".
We would love to hear from you so please call us at (347) 539-5885 and press 1 to 'raise your hand'. We would love to talk to other seekers, and welcome you with complete openness and acceptance!

Is it possible to live fear free? What if it is completely possible, and the experience of healing the result of releasing fear?
Today with Eloisa Ramos we explore these questions wanting to understand what healing is and why A Course in Miracles says,
“Sickness or ‘not-right-mindedness’ is the result of level confusion, because it always entails the belief that what is amiss on one level can adversely affect another. We have referred to miracles as the means of correcting level confusion, for all mistakes must be corrected at the level on which they occur.” Page 23.
We will focus on what level confusion is, why it results in miscreation and why physical illness represents a “belief in magic” from Chapter 2 of ACIM.
“Physical illness represents a belief in magic. The whole distortion that made magic rests on the belief that there is a creative ability in matter which the mind cannot control. This error can take two forms; it can be believed that the mind can miscreate in the body, or that the body can miscreate in the mind.” Page 23.

Being a student of A Course in Miracles includes the recognizing how much the ego beckons us.
Being on the Course is a commitment to choose Truth, even if we don't know it yet. It may take the rest of our (multiple) lives to learn detachment from ego.
If you have the Complete Edition of ACIM, we will pull from Chapter 4 - Illusions of the Ego (page 52). We're going to start with the Introduction because even though it's just one page, it is packed with wisdom and right minded thought. We can't get enough of it, it requires daily practice to be aware of what enters and lingers in our mind.
The mind is so powerful that even though the Course is the ultimate teaching of LOVE, we know that the mind dictates everything we do, say, and create.
I hope that you feel compelled to join in the conversation!
If so, please call in to (347) 539-5885 and connect with other students and seekers on the Course.
Even if you are not reading the Course and are drawn to the teachings - we know you are a part of us.
We hope to speak with you!
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.
A Course in Miracles tells us that perception is only partial truth. Which means it's only our truth - so can we call it real truth?

Perception appeared at the birth of the ego. Deception plays a huge part.
On the Course - we become committed to our awareness around the ego. It is how we shift things.
When our perception changes - we can actively choose anything different from our previous experience.
We KNOW we can choose.
Our greatest power is in our decision.
Deception of couse is ego based - and never truth.
Deception can be enticing, manipulative, beautiful, sexy.
So I thought we should talk about it. I'm thinking this might be a 2 part topic! We'll see.
In tonight's episode, we will look at today's lesson (240) and find the great comfort that it offers us; "Fear is not justified in any form." Whatever form your particular fear may take, it is "but witness to your own illusions of yourself." It is not true or real! We can train ourselves to look past these illusions to the truth and be freed from the effects of illusion/fear--which in truth can have no real effects , since they do not come for the level of Cause. We can choose to remember that "There is no fear in us, for we are part of Love Itself." ANd we can choose to focus on that truth in each other as well. We will also read from chapter 17, section 8 (in the original editionof the Course published by the Course in Miracles Society) "The Need for Faith."
Nationally and International known author and speaker Gary Renard will be our special guest on Tuesday, May 26th at 7:00p.m. This will be a pre-recorded interview with a bold, courageous speaker who was visited by Master’s who brought forth profound teachings from the Course in Miracles. Best -selling author known for “The Disappearance of the Universe” as well as “Your Immortal Reality” and “Love Has Forgotten No One.” You will be receiving straight talk about illusions, religions, and how to stop the wheel of reincarnation. Please join Hope for this amazing speaker.

"I said that I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. That is why I am the light of the world. If I am with you in the loneliness of the world, the loneliness is gone."
~ What a profound message from God. Not just one we hear but one that we KNOW and carry with us through every situation in our day to day life. This is what this week's episode will cover: the reminder that we carry the light within us, and knowing this, we are NEVER alone.
Loneliness is felt, yes, but it is not our truth. When we know that God is within us, we have the ability to navigate a joyful and wholehearted life. Join us as we talk about this!
Even if you are not reading the Course and are drawn to the teachings - we know you are a part of us.
