About A Course In Miracles:
A Course in Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual thought system. As a three-volume curriculum consisting of a Text, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers, it teaches that the way to universal love and peace - or remembering God - is by undoing guilt through forgiving others. The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy. A Course in Miracles also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are "many thousands." Consequently, even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles therefore is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.
The summary introduction, which appears in its Text, is quite succinct and brief. It reads: This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.
A Course of Love is a living course that empowers us to recognize, through our felt experience, the truth of who we are as human and divine beings - a truth much more magnificent than we could previously imagine. ACOL.
Eric Ehrhard has been a student of The Course since 1980 and has shared The Course in group settings ever since.
From Eric: Though The Course is an individual experience to your own awakening, I have found over the years that as The Course itself says; to have something we must give it away. Everything is thought and thoughts shared lead us to the realization that we are co-creators of everything that is real.
