Lesson 132: I loose the world from all I thought it was.
In this segment we will explore Lesson 132, which states, in part:
“This is the central thought the course attempts to teach. Not everyone us ready to accept it, and each one must go as far as he can let himself be led along the road to truth. He will return and go still farther, or perhaps step back a while and then return again.”
This is one of the core concepts of ACIM, and yet one that students find the most difficult to accept. How can there not be a world? I see it, feel it, live and move within it—so does everyone else. To say otherwise is crazy. Or denial.
However, ACIM tells us this is one of our greatest obstacles in remembering our true nature and knowing God. Come join Char and Dr. Bob as they help to untangle this challenging topic and make sense of it.
Dr. Bob joins Charlotte on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 3:00 pm Eastern. Additional commentary is frequently offered from his book, From Plagues to Miracles.
A student of A Course in Miracles since before it was published, Dr. Bob was a close personal friend of Bill Thetford, Ph.D. (Co-Scribe of ACIM) and has served on the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Inner Peace, publisher of the Course, since 1992. He is the author of From Plagues to Miracles: The Transformational Journey of Exodus, From the Slavery of Ego to the Promised Land of Spirit. The book interprets the Biblical story of Exodus as it pertains to the workings of the ego.
