This book, the progression from A Course in Miracles and The Way of Mastery, contains the extraordinary and transformational teachings of Jeshua ben Joseph who speaks not as a savior above us, but as our brother in Christ and our friend to gently and lovingly guide us to living from a wholeheartedness born of uniting the mind with the heart of our being.
It may be astonishing to hear that there is a “continuation” of A Course in Miracles, but it is true. Forty years ago Jesus dictated ACIM to the scribe Helen Schucman. More recently, over three years, he similarly dictated A Course of Love. Jesus himself referred to what he was dictating as a “continuation of A Course in Miracles.” Students of ACIM will recognize the Voice. Students of truth, whatever their background, will find that ACOL resonates with the heart.
A Course of Love builds upon the same thought system as ACIM, yet it is a course for the heart. ACOL and ACIM work hand-in-hand. Yet remarkably, ACOL bypasses the mind. It uses thought to go beyond thought. Those yearning to access the heart’s knowing will find help here. This is your invitation to live the purposeful, meaningful life of the new—the reality of heaven on earth.
Why a new Course? Love cannot be taught.” It’s almost as simple as that.
ACOL says: “This is the only reason for this continuation of the coursework provided in A Course in Miracles. While you continue to put effort into learning what cannot be learned, as you continue to see yourself as a student seeking to acquire what you do not yet have, you cannot recognize the unity in which you exist . . .” (A.4)
ACOL says: “A Course in Miracles attempted to dislodge the ego-mind that has provided you with an identity that you but think you are. A Course of Love then followed in order to reveal to you who you truly are.” (T2:4.3)
