A Course in Miracles is a teaching device that aims to assist its readers in achieving spiritual transformation. Wikipedia
The story of the Course began when Columbia University research psychologist Dr. William T. Thetford decided he had had enough of the the intensely competitive and negative climate he was experiencing and declared to his colleague, Dr. Helen Shucman, “There must be another way, and I am determined to find it. She agreed to help. What ensued was a dramatic progression of waking dreams for Shucman, which culminated in October of 1965 with her experience of a voice which spoke clearly in her mind, saying, “This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.”
All your pain comes simply from a futile search for what you want, insisting it must be found outside you.
Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity to heal.
I am never upset for the reason I think.
Listen in deep silence. Be very still and open your mind.
Sink deep in to the peace that waits for you beyond the frantic, riotous thoughts.
Teach only love – for that is what you are.
There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost.
You are free to believe what you choose and what you do attests to what you believe.
