Introduction: A Course in Miracles for Work Life




An Introduction to A Course in Miracles

A Course In Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual system. The Course contains three books: a 669-page Text, a 488-page Workbook for Students which consists of 365 lessons and a 92-page Manual for Teachers.

The Course was scribed by Helen Schucman, PhD, who experienced a clear dictation from an Inner Voice which happened from 1965 to 1972. William Thetford, PhD, who supported and assisted her, helped her to type the material. The Course was first published in 1975.

The principles in the Course are to be experienced and practiced in our daily lives.  To make it easily applicable, these sessions are called “A Course In Miracles for Work Life”. There will be two sessions for the Introduction of the Course. And this is what it says:

A Course In Miracles

TEXT

INTRODUCTION

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 for love’s presence,
which is your natural inheritance.
The opposite of love is fear,
but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.

This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.

Herein lies the peace of God.
