A Course In Miracles
What is Inner Peace, where do we find it and is it possible in this chaotic world?
Once we have found it how do we keep it? There are thousands of paths home and the Course claims to be one of them.
This blog/discussion is about Inner Peace inspired by A Course In Miracles.
While searching for peace for many years, I finally found the metaphysical, mystical, non-dual Spiritual book called A Course In Miracles in 1987. It has been my companion ever since along with the messenger of the Course; Jesus.
All my writing and inspiration therefore comes from my study of the Course as I understand it. The Course was published in 1973. It has a 669 page text, a workbook with 365 lessons, one for each day of the year. It also includes a Manual for Teachers and The Clarification of Terms. The third edition also includes two additional pamphlets: The Song of Prayer and Psychotherapy, Purpose and Practice.
There are many interpretation of the Course and there are many teachers. Mine was Dr. Kenneth Wapnick, the founder of the Foundation for A Course In Miracles now based in Henderson, NV. formerly of Temecula, CA and Roscoe, NY. He met the scribe of the Course, Dr. Helen Schucman in 1972 and helped with the editing of the Course. You can read more about Ken and Helen in the autobiography he wrote, “Absence from Felicity.” Sadly Dr. Wapnick passed away December 27, 2013. Visit the Foundation For A Course In Miracles website to learn more, purchase his books and a plethora of teaching and learning aids. http://www.facim.org

The above photo “Choose Peace” is of a banner that I created that hung on the Ashland Peace Fence in 2007. Over 200 artists made large banners that hung on a fence at the railroad tracks. Vandals damaged many of the banners and “Choose Peace” was stolen. Pictures were taken of all the banners and made into 6″x6″ mosaic tiles that were installed onto a 54 ft. tile wall and placed in front of the Ashland Public Library on September 21, 2010. Be sure to visit the library on Siskiyou Blvd., and see how Ashland artists envisioned peace.
