This collection of twenty essays, based on deeply-felt, personal experiences of reading the Lessons and the Text of A Course In Miracles, demonstrates the transformation from the limited, conceptual, egoic self-identity to the limitless Self created by God, seeing with the vision of Christ. This transformation is simply a shift from one state of mind to another, from the self-identity state to the state of mind of the Self. The gap is bridged by the Holy Spirit when you ask for help, realizing you can’t, He can and He will and He does. Throughout the book, this transformation is expressed in reference to poetry, paintings, passages from the New Testament, movies, essays on psychology, the classic comedians, relationships with family and friends, Lindbergh’s historic flight, and so forth. In addition, a sonnet by Jesus graces the page between each chapter. Several of these essays started out as blogposts.

The articles in this book are plain and simple and practical. They reflect the transformative experience of practicing the Lessons of A Course In Miracles. They demonstrate a mind awakening from the dream to the experience of the Peace of God. This awakening is expressed through poems, songs, a Shakespearian sonnet, sonnets from the Course, a “Star Trek” episode, excerpts from a Socratic dialogue, and stories of direct personal experience. What is unique about this book is that it offers the reader opportunities to experience a shift in his own mind. Each article engages the reader by addressing his perceptual, dreaming mind, inviting him to participate in experiencing the alternative to his dreaming. By entering in, the reader can experience a shift from dreaming to awakening to the True Reality of his own Identity.

The mind and inner function of a chronically addicted person becomes
completely overtaken by impulses from the person's 'using repertoire'. A 'using

By learning how to connect with and understand the true self - the soul - we can alter the path of our lives. Judith Pemell recounts her own spiritual journey and powerful examples of others and describes the anatomy of the soul and its functions. She includes precise explanations of how to tune into the soul and our higher powers, how the soul ensures our integrity or moral centre, and how an understanding of karma and reincarnation can help to free us from the past and create a better future.

How terrible are the words that issued from the mouths of those deceivers from amongst the jews, who used false statements to insert intrigue into the books of Islam. Their words about the possible use of magic to bewitch the most honorable one of all creation, Mohammad (cpth), are nothing more than mere lies. The same is true of another of their sayings- fie on them (may God make them as ugly as their deeds)- wherein they say that the accursed Satan controlled the Prophet (cpth), as well as other of our great masters, including Solomon, Job and our father Adam. Their statements are easily refutable, and just as our of every pot pours that which it contains, woe to them because of what pours from their spirits. As a result of such intrigues, the belief in magic, along with other spiritual diseases, is spread amongst the Muslims by disbelieving magicians and their followers- to the extent that one can hardly find a house in which there does not live at least one of their followers- These people believe the devil's call because they have listened to false scholars instead of God and have turned their back on the Qur'an as if they knew better. Now, however, it is time for the voice of truth to be heard by those people, whose forefathers were not warned and who therefore remain heedless. The Great Scholar (Mohammad Amin Sheikho) will bring them out of the darkness and into the light with the use of God's Luminous Book, for the good of all those who believe in Al'lah and the Last Day. God says: "And repent to Al'lah, all of you, oh believers, so that you may be successful." The Holy Qur'an, Fortress 24, An-Nour(Light),verse 31

aspirations, the rise of western monasticism was the most note worthy event of the early centuries. The importance of monasteries cannot be overstressed as sources of spirituality, learning and auto nomy in the intensely masculinized, militarized feudal period. Drawing their members from the highest levels of society, women's monasteries provided an outlet for the energy and ambition of strong-willed women, as well as positions of considerable authority. Even from periods relatively inhospitable to learning of all kinds, the memory has been preserved of a good number of women of education. Their often considerable achievements and influence, however, generally lie outside even an expanded definition of philo sophy. Among the most notable foremothers of this early period were several whose efforts signal the possibility of later philosophical work. Radegund, in the sixth century, established one of the first Frankish convents, thereby laying the foundations for women's spiritual and intellectual development. From these beginnings, women's monasteries increased rapidly in both number and in fluence both on the continent and in Anglo-Saxon England. Hilda (d. 680) is well known as the powerful abbsess of the double monastery of Whitby. She was eager for knowledge, and five Eng lish bishops were educated under her tutelage. She is also accounted the patron of Caedmon, the first Anglo-Saxon poet of religious verse. The Anglo-Saxon nun Lioba was versed in the liberal arts as well as Scripture and canon law.
