A HEROIC FRAME OF MIND: APPRECIATING A COURSE IN MIRACLES
A Tale of Two Heroes
Introduction: A Heroic Frame of Mind
Eric Blom, prominent English musicologist, wrote of
the third movement of Beethovens Hammerklavier
Piano Sonata (#29), among the greatest of all sonatas:
The slow movement is one of the longest and most ele-
vated in all music. The truth is that patience to follow
the present adagio is a listeners virtue which has to be
cultivated and that no one should approach such music
lightly; but it is equally true that a better return for
patience than the full appreciation of this movement is
difficult to imagine and that music on an epic scale is
the apt reward of those who come to it in a heroic frame
of mind (all italics mine except for the first).
1
How apt these words are to those making their
acquaintance with A Course in Miracles. Indeed, one
should not approach its epic majesty cavalierly. It requires
patience, as with any great work of art, if its inspired
genius is to be genuinely recognized and understood.
Speed reading, or a quick examination of its poetic prose is
certainly contra-indicated, as is presuming to understand,
with only a number of readings, the vastness of its teach-
ings and the grandeur of its symphonic structure. Could
anyone hope to experience the all-encompassing essence
of artistic masterpieces such as Goethes Faust, the late
Beethoven Quartets, or Michelangelos David with only
cursory encounters with the artists genius?
A brief excerpt from an 1870 letter of Franz Liszt is
relevant to the point I am making. In a reference I unfortu-
nately have never been able specifically to locate, the
renowned pianist-composer wrote the following regarding
Richard Wagners beautiful and lengthy music-drama, Die
Walkre:
Great works should be embraced entire, body and soul,
form and thought, spirit and life. One ought not to carp
at Wagner for his lengthsit is better to expand ones
scale to his (italics mine).

Liszts comment relates to the fact that attempting to
change or edit the great composers work is not only disre-
spectful of Wagners art, but it also deprives the listener of
a powerful if not profound musical experience. In other
words, echoing Bloms sentiments that came half a century
later, Liszt was saying that one should not approach such
music lightly, and that one needs to be in a heroic frame of
mind to be able to appreciate fully Wagners masterpiece.
Applying this to A Course in Miracles, we need
always be aware of the need for us, its students, to grow
into the Courses magnitude, as opposed to bringing it
down to our littleness. We need to adopt a heroic frame of
mind to achieve this magnitude. Understanding this phrase
depends of course on ones definition of heroic or hero,
and herein lies our tale of two heroes. Our first section,
therefore, compares and contrasts the egos hero of the
dream with the Holy Spirits hero of awakening, invoking
a simple word play, hole and whole.
The Two Heroes:
Littleness (the hole: where love has left) and
Magnitude (the Whole: where sin has left)
The egos hero is the body, the projection of the
wrong-minded thought system of separation (sin, guilt, and
fear). Its origin, therefore, lies in the inherent scarcity prin-
ciple of the ego, in which there is an innate lack or defi-
ciency (an evocative Valentinian Gnostic term to denote
the state of being outside the pleroma, or fullness, of
Heaven). From its inception, the false self we have adopted
as our own has lacked Gods Love and Christs innocence,
leaving a gaping hole where the Self we banished from our

kingdom should be. This little, insignificant self is what we
blow up in our experience, an expression of ego inflation,
to use a Jungian term, investing it with power we believe
we stole from Heaven. This is the consummate glorifica-
tion of the egos principle of salvation: one or the other,
one must die so another can live, to wit:
You think it safer to endow the little self you made with
power you wrested from truth, triumphing over it and
leaving it helpless. See how exactly is this ritual enacted
in the special relationship (T-16.V.11:3-4).
Thus do all our special relationships give glory to the ego,
hiding its littleness of lack behind the arrogant illusion of
magnitude:
Within this kingdom [the separated world where
God can enter not2:6] the ego rules, and cruelly.
And to defend this little speck of dust it bids you fight
against the universe (T-18.VIII.3:1-2).
From their beginnings as fragmented ego thoughts,
our lives are dedicated to one thing, and one thing only: to
preserve the littleness of our self that lacks love by filling
the hole of this self. We take from outside and, to invoke
Freuds concept of introjection, we incorporate what we
have takenthe power we wrested from truthinto our-
selves. This is where our special love and hate partners
come into play, completing the charade of filling the hole,
the minds empty space where love has left. The game of
specialness has as its goal the triumph over another, taking
the special something that is needed to supply the lack
(T-1.I.8:1), filling the hole established by our perceived sin
of separating from love, establishing the illusion of
wholeness.
Consider the body, as we have done many times in
these pages, the embodiment of the egos thought system
of scarcity. Being nothing but the shadowy fragment of the
minds ontological thought of lack, it cannot help but be a
veritable need machine, perpetually fighting to survive by
fulfilling, on the gross physical level, its needs for oxygen,
material sustenance, and water. No sooner do we satisfy
these basic needs than the need returns, our lungs, stomach,
and the bodys cells demanding to be filled once again.
And when we bring into play the psychological needs for
pleasure and the amelioration of pain, the egos self-por-
trait is complete. We are always needing love, attention,
approval from others, not to mention the psychological
need for food, alcohol, drugs, and sex to fill the hole left
vacant where love has left.
This heros life flows with the egos dreams of special-
ness: the triumph that fills the hole and fosters the illusion
of greatness, when all that has really occurred is the deci-
sion to deny the magnitude of the Self. The dream of
bodily satisfaction and victory over love has become the
heros reality, which is why Jesus asks us:
If you perceived the special relationship as a tri-
umph over God, would you want it? The central
theme in its litany to sacrifice is that God must die so
you can live (T-16.V.10:1,4).
Our ego response to the question, needless to say, is a
resounding Yes! We do want the triumph, for otherwise
our littleness could never survive in the place where love
has left.
In juxtaposition to this sorry excuse for a hero, Jesus
presents us with the genuine article, one whose life is dedi-
cated to recapturing the magnitude that had seemingly
been thrown away; not a hero of the dream of littleness and
lack, but the hero of the dream of awakening to our magni-
tude and true wholeness, the place where sin has left. Since
our identification with the ego and its thought system of
separation and specialness is so profound, we are not asked
to recognize our wholeness as Christ, but only to have the
little willingness and dedication to doing whatever it
takeswith everyone and in every situationto remember
our lifes purpose of moving through the clouds of dark-
ness to the light, shifting from the place where love has left
to the holiest of all the spots on earth (T-26.IX.6:1),
where sin has left. Forgiveness is the pathway that leads us
to this right-minded goal: from sin to holiness, sleep to
awakening, hell to Heaven. It is the means whereby we see
the face of Christ in our brothers and remember God, shift-
ing from the guilt of scarcitys hole to the oneness of our
inherent wholeness as Gods true Son:
The holy place on which you stand is but the space
that sin has left. And here you see the face of Christ,
arising in its place. Who could behold the face of Christ
and not recall His Father as He really is? Who could
fear love, and stand upon the ground where sin has left a
place for Heavens altar to rise and tower far above the
world, and reach beyond the universe to touch the Heart
of all creation? What is Heaven but a song of gratitude
and love and praise by everything created to the Source
of its creation? The holiest of altars is set where once
sin was believed to be (T-26.IV.3:1-6).
It is the lovely music of the Atonement that leads us to
this sacred space wherein we hear the forgotten song.
Choosing to learn from a different Teacher and reflecting
our desire to hear only the Atonements soft notes, we
rejoin the endless flow of Heavens sweet tones (that vast
song of honor and of love for what you are [T-24.II.4:5])
that we had shunned for the egos dissonant discords of
specialness. But to hear this endless melody, listening only
to the Voice that will take us home by our attaining a heroic
frame of mind, we need do the ongoing work of looking at
our egos and joyfully admitting we were wrong.

Attaining a Heroic Frame of Mind:
The Humility of Being Wrong
The shift from the egos hero to the Holy Spirits is the
shift from form to content, body to mind. The ego counsels
us to focus only on the form, which is the substance of the
egos mindless world of bodies, ignoring the minds con-
tent of having chosen guilt over innocence:
love is content, and not form of any kind. The special
relationship is a ritual of form, aimed at raising the form
to take the place of God at the expense of content. There
is no meaning in the form, and there will never be
(T-16.V.12:1-3).
And yet, though we will always be wrong when we
judge the meaning or value of a situation or relationship,
given our persistent emphasis on form (what our eyes see
and our brains interpret), we stubbornly insist we are right.
This arrogance not only permeates our everyday lives, but
also, unfortunately, our work with A Course in Miracles.
We believe we have understood its teachings because we
have understand its words. Yet without having attained a
heroic frame of mind and learning what it means to accept
the Atonement, it would be impossible to grasp its monu-
mental content.
Therefore, as students of A Course in Miracles we
need to be aware of the almost inevitable temptation to
arrogantly believe we have attained its magnitude, when
we have not yet done the workday in and day outthat
would allow us humbly to reflect in our lives the love that
is the essence of the Course, being its source. Speaking of
God, Jesus urges us to Be humble before Him, and yet
great in Him (T-15.IV.3:1), meaning that we are great
because of our Identity as Gods Son, and yet humble
because He is our Creator and Source of the love that we
are. Moreover, we need His help (through the Holy Spirit)
to awaken to this reality as His one Son. Likewise, we
should feel humility as we stand before the Course, recog-
nizing the undoing of guilt we need accomplish before we
can remember our Identity as Christ. Thinking we have
mastered A Course in Miracles, when in fact we are barely
ready for it, is the height of our spiritual arrogance. Rele-
vant here is a favorite story of mine, involving Bruno
Walter, to my mind the greatest Mozart conductor of the
twentieth century. In an interview near the end of his long
and celebrated life, the Maestro stated:
It needs some maturity to understand the depth of emo-
tion which speaks in Mozarts seeming tranquillity and
measure. I wasfifty when for the first time I was
audacious enough to perform the G Minor [Symphony
#40]. Ihad such a feeling of responsibility and of the
difficulty to perform it. And I wondered at all the
young conductors who, without any qualms, just went
ahead and conducted all these works which asked for
such depth of feeling and such maturity of technique.
3
Apropos of this, I recall my younger days wherein I
spent many an afternoon and evening (sometimes morn-
ings as well!) as a standee at the old Metropolitan Opera
House in New York City. Standing long hours outside,
even in inclement weather, waiting to be granted entry into
the majestic edifice (now given way to a gigantic office
complex) made fast friends of us operaphiles. One fellow
standee was a music student who pridefully announced to
me one day that he would soon be giving a piano recital
and playing, among other things, a late Beethoven sonata. I
wondered out loud, as Dr. Walter did years before me, how
he could possibly perform such a musically and spiritually
mature work in public, being so young. His answer, brim-
ming with the confidence of youth, surprised me. This
way, he stated, I could better learn how to play it. I
thought to myself that this was the perfect way not to learn
it, for while performing it publicly might help him master
the technical challenges of playing Beethoven, not having
attained an inner maturity would seriously hinder his grow-
ing into the profound world of the Masters final period. To
be sure, before we can run, we must first learn to walk, if
not crawl.
In other words, we need to do the daily work so that we
can grow up and attain a truly heroic state of mind. In my
workshops and classes I frequently read Helens lovely
poem A Jesus Prayer, in which we pray that we can grow
up and become like our elder brother, passing through the
normal steps of spiritual development: a child, a man and
then a spirit. Or, in Nietzsches famous parable from Thus
Spoke Zarathustra, the subject of one of my earlier work-
shops, CD, and later a book
4
, we progress through the
stages of being a camel, lion, and then a childdifferent
terms, used differently, but with the same meaning of mov-
ing beyond the guilt and fear of spiritual childhood, using
the world as a classroom in which we grow and mature,
finally achieving the innocence of the Child or spirit.
The essence of such growth into a truly heroic frame of
mind is accepting what we can think of as the humility of
being wrong, as enunciated by this line from the text,
familiar to almost all students of A Course in Miracles:
Do you prefer that you be right or happy? (T-29.VII.1:9).
Before we can remember the magnitude of our Identity as
Christ, we must first recognize our littleness, and the tre-
mendous pull toward surrounding ourselves with the little

interferers [that] pull us to littleness (T-23.in.4:1). We
need to experience how unhappy this makes us, and how
we cling with a passion to our certainty of being right
about the world, our bodies, and what gives us pleasure
and pain.
And so we need to learn from our everyday experi-
ences. The most challenging aspect of Jesus role as
teacher is to motivate us to see the immensity of our learn-
ing opportunities, even in the seeming minuscule. In the
famous words of William Blakes Auguries of Innocence:
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
This idea cannot be emphasized enough. Salvation and
the complete healing of the mind is available to us at any
time, anywhere, with anyone. The size of the encounter is
irrelevant, which is why there is no order of difficulty in
miracles (T-1.I.1). As we read from the manual for teach-
ers about the seeming levels of learning:
The simplest level of teaching appears to be quite
superficial. It consists of what seem to be very casual
encountersEach of them has the potential for becom-
ing a teaching-learning situationEven at the level of
the most casual encounter, it is possible for two people
to lose sight of separate interests, if only for a moment.
That moment will be enough. Salvation has come
(M-3.2:1-2,4,6-8).
Since time is illusory and everything happens simulta-
neously, everything we experience emanates from the
decision-making minds choice between two simple alter-
natives, regardless of the circumstances: truth and illusion,
God and the ego, vision or judgment. Because our fear of
reality (perfect love and oneness) is too great, as it threat-
ens our very self (special and separated), we need to learn
gently and slowly, the indirect learning Jesus discusses in
the section on The Happy Learner:
Indirect proof of truth is needed in a world made of
denial [The Holy Spirits] message is not indirect, but
He must introduce the simple truth into a thought sys-
tem which has become so twisted and so complex you
cannot see that it means nothing (T-14.I.2:1; 5:2).
We must learn to see a little, that we learn a lot (W-pI.
161.4:8), taking the little steps of salvation (W-pI.
193.13:7) before we can accept our magnitude. And what
are these little steps that will exponentially metamorphose
into the journeys end?
Very simply, these steps coalesce into one: no longer
seeing anothers interests as apart from our own (M-1.1:2).
When we are with someone, we do not make the relation-
ship about ourselves, but about them. By looking at the sit-
uation through the eyes of kindness and not specialness, we
do not put our needs above anothers, but look beyond the
surface purposes to the underlying content we all share as
children separated from their Father. For example, when
involved with service people in a restaurant or department
store, our natural tendency is to see them as existing solely
to wait on us, serving our needs; after all, that is why they
are being paid. Yet, imagine the gains to us when we can
transcend these superficial perceptions and recognize that
our going into the place of business was for our joint salva-
tion. That is the meaning of some of the early workbook
lessons, for instance, I do not perceive my own best inter-
ests and I do not know what anything is for (W-pI.
24,25).
What helps drive this point home is to remember that
the sole cause of all distress is our belief in separation, and
therefore the experience of shared purposeregardless of
its form or magnitudegently reflects the Atonement
principle that we are not separate, but remain as God
created us: a Oneness joined as One (T-25.I.7:1). This is
why Jesus reminds us:
Alone we are all lowly, but together we shine with
brightness so intense that none of us alone can even
think of it (T-13.X.14:2).
The intense brightness is the spark of the Great Ray that is
our reality as Christ. It is the shift from the littleness of the
separated state to the magnitude of our shared Self.
And yet we all experience the pull to littleness, for that
preserves our individual and special state, the core of our
existence. Each of us walks this earth desperately trying to
gain allies to reinforce our little identity. This is why Jesus
exhorts us to be vigilant, as we just sawLet not the little
interferers pull you to littlenessand why he unveils the
secret vows, oaths, pledges, and promises we make to each
other to keep the Sonship in a perpetual and mindless state
of physical life in the world (T-28.VI.4). Asking us to be
heroes of his dream, to live in a heroic frame of mind and
not be tempted by the heroes of the egos petty nightmares
of guilt and hate, Jesus pleads with us:
Be not content with littlenessLittleness is the
offering you give yourself. You offer this in place of
magnitude, and you accept itYou do not have to
strive for it [magnitude], because you have it. All your
striving must be directed against littleness, for it does
require vigilance to protect your magnitude in this
world. To hold your magnitude in perfect awareness in
a world of littleness is a task the little cannot undertake
(T-15.III.1:1,3-4; 4:3-5; my italics).
The italicized sentence above is crucial. It requires tre-
mendous discipline and constant vigilance to maintain
awareness that littleness is a defense against recognizing

our magnitude, that our fear of who we truly areheroes of
the Holy Spirits dream instead of the egosimpels us
continually to give away our decision-making power to the
powers of littleness that seem to determine what we think,
feel, and do. Our purpose, therefore, is to hold our
magnitude in awareness throughout the day. And that we
do, to restate this crucial thought, whenever we do not look
at the world through the eyes of our special needs and self-
centered weakness, but rather through the eyes of magni-
tude, Christs strength:
You always choose between your weakness and the
strength of Christ in youSimply by never using
weakness to direct your actions, you have given it no
power. And the light of Christ in you is given charge of
everything you do (T-31.VIII.2:3,5-6).
By so doing, we can understand that our attitude
toward A Course in Miracles reflects our attitude toward
ourself. Will we be the hero of littleness or magnitude?
Will we approach the Courses magnitude in a heroic
frame of mind or with the arrogance of the spiritually
immature? If we think we are separated physical entities,
we must, perforce, treat Jesus teachings that way, using
them to reinforce our littleness and body identification.
How could it not be?
Can you who see yourself within a body know yourself
as an idea? Everything you recognize you identify with
externals, something outside itself. You cannot even
think of God without a body, or in some form you think
you recognize (T-18.VIII.1:5-7).
Projection makes perception (T-13.V.3:5; T-21.in.1:1).
We first look inside and choose the hero of our dreams, and
that choice determines how we perceive the world, includ-
ing A Course in Miracles. Two choices alone are available
to us:
Each has its outcome in a different world. And each
world follows surely from its source. The certain out-
come of the lesson that Gods Son is guilty is the world
you see. It is a world of terror and despairThe out-
come of the lesson that Gods Son is guiltless is a world
in which there is no fear, and everything is lit with hope
and sparkles with a gentle friendliness (T-31.I.7:2-5;
8:1).
The choice is ours, and we need to be very clear that
when we experience the hopeless and despairing life of the
egos hero we have no cause to point to but ourselves.
Therefore no one is entitledto [his] bitterness (W-pI.
195.9:3), for nothing but our own fear stands between us
and the heroic frame of mind that will enable us to grow
into magnitude, and truly live the heros life that Jesus
holds out for us in his course.
Living the Heroic Frame of Mind
We begin our concluding section with this brief pas-
sage from the beginning of Lesson 155:
There is a way of living in the world that is not here,
although it seems to be. You do not change appearance,
though you smile more frequently. Your forehead is
serene; your eyes are quiet. And the ones who walk the
world as you do recognize their own (W-pI.155.1:1-4).
These are the happy effects of choosing to grow into
the Courses epic scale, rather than diminishing it as a way
of diminishing ourselves. And when these awakening
right-minded heroes approach A Course in Miracles, they
do so by first recognizing the epic scale of the self within,
recognizing in Jesus words an extension of their inner love
and wisdom. The perception and experience of these
mighty words go far beyond what is on the printed page.
Eric Blom, whom I quoted at the beginning of this article,
wrote an essay On the Playing of Beethoven
5
in which he
reflected on this need for a heroic frame of mind in the pia-
nist setting out to play Beethoven. Let us listen and gener-
alize from his exhortation to the performer, hearing the call
that we be all that we are in order to hear the lofty music
behind the Courses simple notes. Here are some brief
excerpts from Bloms essay:
The pianist who hands Beethoven to his public cut and
dried, without daring for a moment to let the music
sway him by its own power is as lifeless as the actor
who simply follows the producers instructions like an
automaton.
It is what lies behindthe notes we listen for.
[The pianist needs] to yield to momentary promptings
of his imagination during the performance.
For it is a matter of musical response that comes from
within and cannot be instilled.
In other words, mere repetition of the words or principles
of A Course in Miracles without being infused by the stu-
dents (or teachers) experience of their truth leaves one a
lifeless spiritual automaton. To shift to a famous analogy,
such an unimaginative and loveless recitation of the
Course would be, in the words of St. Paul, like a noisy
gong or clanging cymbal (1 Corinthians 13:1). Students in
a heroic frame of mind do not speak, teach, or live the
Course from withouttheir words or actionsbut having

thirty-two Beethoven Sonatas.

identified with its loving wisdom, they let it speak, teach,
and live through them in momentary promptings of [their]
imagination. In words familiar to readers of our newslet-
ter, they exemplify Jesus teachings on resurrection (awak-
ening from the egos dream of death) by demonstrating
that he lives in them (T-11.VI.7:3). Such demonstration
cannot be faked, but it is recognized, as we saw just above,
by those who walk the world as these genuine heroes do, to
which we can add those who sincerely wish to walk the
world as they do.
By their hearing the Holy Spirits forgotten song in
their heart, His vision permeates every person, object, and
situation in their day, and they look upon the world
through the Heavenly judgment that sees either expres-
sions of love or calls for it (T-14.X.7:1). Their focus is not
on the world, learning to respond differently to different
situations, but rather it is only on remaining in touch with
the music within, what Wagner termed the melos of
musicthe inner melody that unifies a composition and
supplies its creative life, which lies behindthe notes.
By so doing, every relationship and outer event is
approached in the same way: with love. In the spirit of the
first principle of miracles, All expressions of love are
maximal (T-1.I.1:4). As observed earlier, it does not mat-
ter how superficial or significant an encounter is, the con-
tent of love remains the same, gently adapting to the form
appropriate to the circumstance.
This consistency of love is the hallmark of true heroes,
and is what distinguishes them from those whose fear still
blocks the free flow of love to all things of the world, ani-
mate or inanimate, large or small, significant or insignifi-
cant. No order of difficulty in miracles means no order,
range, or differing criteria for evaluating the relative
importance of events. Everyone and everything call forth
but one loving response, for that is the message of
A Course in Miracles: forgiveness is for all, or for no one.
Coming to the Course with a heroic frame of mind enables
the student to comprehend fully this profound teaching,
thereby learning how to live it every moment of every day,
giving power to no one and nothing to interfere with the
extension of Jesus love in joyous embrace of the seem-
ingly fragmented Sonship, without exception and regard-
less of its myriad and disparate forms.
When I was in a monastery in Israel, very shortly
before I saw A Course in Miracles for the first time, I
attended a community meeting where the angry abbot, an
otherwise gentle and patient soul, rebuked his monks for
being lax in their monastic vocation. He closed his talk
with a rousing peroration in which he called for them to
live as real monks. I did not remain in the monastery long
enough to witness if this holy mans efforts bore fruit, but
his words have remained emblazoned in my heart for close
to four decades. In his course, I hear Jesus similarly calling
for real monks, true heroes who would hear the music of
his message, take it into their hearts, there to be nurtured
and nourished by the daily practice of forgiveness and
kindness for all people, during all times, and in all circum-
stances. Only then could their song rise up and into the
world to call, as did their teacher before them, for real stu-
dents, genuine heroes with a heroic frame of mind who
would unite their forgiven voices in harmony with the
hymn to Heaven. Their united voices would call every last
separated Son to the place where sin has left, there to com-
plete the journey begun in that ancient instant, long forgot-
ten, returning as one Son, one voice, one chorus, singing in
joyous gratitude to the one God, the Creator and Source of
all that is:
Where sin once was perceived will rise a world that
will become an altar to the truth, and you will join the
lights of Heaven there, and sing their song of gratitude
and praise. And as they come to you to be complete, so
will you go with them. For no one hears the song of
Heaven and remains without a voice that adds its power
to the song, and makes it sweeter still. And each one
joins the singing at the altar that was raised within the
tiny spot that sin proclaimed to be its own. And what
was tiny then has soared into a magnitude of song in
which the universe has joined with but a single
voicehow great will be the joy in Heaven when you
join the mighty chorus to the Love of God! (T-26.IV.5;
6:3) Q

EXCERPTS SERIES
The upcoming title in this series is Special Relationships: The Home of Guilt, from the workshop of October 2001.
The discussion focuses on how special relationships originate in, and are sustained by our need to defend against the
pain of our guilt coming from the belief that we exist apart from God. The insidious and painful dynamics of specialness
are explored as they develop on interpersonal and international levels. The undoing of our guilt through forgiveness is
explained in the context of our moving from separate to shared interests.

REGISTRATION ENDS OCTOBER 31, OR WHEN CLASS FILLS.

We are all well aware that our words about how we love A Course in Miracles and wish to learn its lessons often belie the under-
lying ego thoughts that are so resistant to meaningful change. It is the familiar issue of form and content, wherein we so often use
the forms of our special relationships, including those with the Course, to conceal the content of the minds special relationship with
the ego. The class, using lecture, discussion, and readings, will highlight the process of forgiveness that enables us to harmonize our
words and thoughts, ending the guilt-reinforcing conflict that keeps us imprisoned in the thought system of separation, specialness,
and attack.
2011
A-1 THE EGOS WORLD: THE THUNDER OF THE MEANINGLESS
Dates: January 9 11 Fee: $100.00 for entire program; $40.00 for each individual day.
A-1D1 January 9 Fee: $40.00 A-1D2 January 10 Fee: $40.00 A-1D3 January 11 Fee: $40.00
As opposed to the Holy Spirits meaningful world of forgiveness, ultimately transformed into the real world, the egos world of
separation (sin, guilt, and fear) is a meaningless thought system that, to quote Macbeths famous line, is full of sound and fury, sig-
nifying nothing. It is as ludicrous as a little child raising a match to the sky, believing he holds the fate of the sun in his hands
(W-pI.92), or a tiny mouse roaring at the universe (T-22.V). Indeed, the egos world is the thunder of the meaningless; its dark
clouds easily dispersed by the gentle smile of the Atonement: nothing happened but an errant thought that had no effect upon reality.
A-2 THE FACE OF CHRIST: A MANY-FACETED JEWEL
Dates: February 13 15 Fee: $100.00 for entire program; $40.00 for each individual day.
A-2D1 February 13 Fee: $40.00 A-2D2 February 14 Fee: $40.00 A-2D3 February 15 Fee: $40.00
While the face of Christ, the picture of the innocence of Gods Son, is one, it appears in as many forms as there are fragments. In
this classusing lecture, discussion, and readingswe will explore the important theme of form and content, learning how to pen-
etrate the egos veil of complexity to the simple truth that is Gods Son. In practice, this means that we recognize and learn to
acknowledge the universal sameness of Gods seemingly separated Sonsmany forms, one Content; many loves, one Love; many
sons, one Son.
A-3 ON DEATH AND DYING: ENDING, CONTINUING, OR AWAKENING?
Dates: March 14 18 Fee: $175.00 for entire program; $40.00 for each individual day.
A-3D1 March 14 Fee: $40.00 A-3D2 March 15 Fee: $40.00 A-3D3 March 16 Fee: $40.00
A-3D4 March 17 Fee: $40.00 A-3D5 March 18 Fee: $40.00
As bodies, we probably have no greater concern than dying and what follows, especially when we reach the golden years
wherein ones mortality looms larger and larger. Moreover, death is among the more misunderstood concepts in A Course in Mira-
cles, as it involves the perennial confusion of mind and body; the mind being the source of everything physical, existing outside
time and space, body and world. Through lecture, discussion, and readings, the question of deaththe central dream from which
all illusions stem (M-27.1:1)will be explored in depth.
