A Course in Miracles is a Spiritual Guide Book, but it’s objectives have less to do with how you should live your life day to day. It is not the “Third Testament”. It’s learning objective is simple. It’s Goal is to help you find Peace. It’s simple response to so called “Day to Day” life is that you are dreaming, dreams are not real, and can be overlooked or forgiven. The Course states this elegantly very early on with this simple statement:
Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the Peace of God.
Now, there ARE other pathways to help you wake up from the dream of life, but The Course has a certain way of getting to the heart of matters more quickly and with less (actually none) sense of sacrifice…making it in the end quicker for the human psyche to pick up and run with.
Is it hard? Yes. Will it cause you to look on life in a totally different way? That is it’s objective, and I can personally tell you, it does a very good job at it.
Will it be worth it? If your goal is peace, I cannot recommend a more effective and guided method of achieving it.
