Sharon Ann Wikoff, host of the Voice of Change, welcomes Mari Perron to the program. Mari is called the First Receiver of the book called A Course of Love. After having studied A Course in Miracles for two years straight and reading it through 7 times, she was given an amazing gift, the "knowing" that she was to receive the follow up book to the Course in Miracles, A Course of Love! Some months later, the Course began coming to her and for three years she took the dictation down word for word. Now, 17 years after she heard the first words, and fourteen years since the work was first completed as three books: the Course, Treastises, and Dialogues, A Course of Love has been republished in a 674 page combined volume. Today Mari and Sharon will share a conversation about this heart-felt book, some of the concepts within it and Mari's amazing journey in her role as First Receiver in this process.
Mari Shares the following Overview of A Course of Love: If we’re going to be who we are in a way that does not disregard either our humanity or our divinity, a way that does not disregard each other and the world, we need to start with our hearts. Love gives reason its foundation. Joining heart and mind in wholeheartedness, which is the aim of the first of the three books of A Course of Love, is called the first union. Through this union we are no longer divided against ourselves. A true Self replaces the ego or false self that we once viewed as ourselves, and the Treatises, the second book, leads us through that change. The third book, The Dialogues, takes us to the mountain top for a 40 Day experience of transformation, but does not leave us there. Our return to level ground symbolizes the way of incarnation, the joining of the human and divine that makes us creators of a new world.
