There is a way of knowing that can take you beyond where all your learning has taken you. It is the way of direct experience of truth. It is the way of the heart.
It may be astonishing to hear that there is a continuation of A Course in Miracles (ACIM), but it is true. Forty years ago, Jesus dictated ACIM to the scribe Helen Schucman. More recently (1998-2001) he similarly dictated A Course of Love to Mari Perron.
Mari Perron, who narrates this audio edition, is the scribe, or "First Receiver," of A Course of Love.
A Course of Love (ACOL) was originally received as three distinct books: A Course of Love, The Treatises of a Course of Love and The Dialogues of A Course of Love. This audiobook is book two, The Treatises.
ACOL is not about adding to what one has already learned, but about undoing the learning that binds us to being other than who we truly are.
The four Treatises are: (1) "A Treatise on the Art of Thought"; (2) "A Treatise on the Nature of Unity and Its Recognition"; (3) "A Treatise on the Personal Self"; and (4) "A Treatise on The New".
"A Treatise on the Art of Thought" presents a new way of thought. "Thoughts that were guarded by the ego-mind were in need of being set free. Appealing to your heart was the means or cause of this freedom being accomplished in you. What was spoken of within the Course as unlearning has begun and continues here. What was spoken of within the Course as new learning has begun and continues here as well. The difference is that you are now ready to learn a new means of response to this unlearning and learning. That response is the art of thought."
"A Treatise on the Nature of Unity" and its Recognition "shows you how to live as who you are, and how to act within the world as the new Self you have identified. Just like learning how to swim, it is a new way of movement."
"A Treatise on the Personal Self" continues the theme of moving from head to heart, and of finding and living a new identity: "You cannot think your way to the new life that calls to you. You can only get there by being who you are in truth. All that was ever other than who you are was the ego. The ego is gone. The ego was simply your idea of who you were. This idea was a complex set of judgments, of good and bad, right and wrong, worthy and unworthy, a list as endless as it was worthless. Realize now the worthlessness of this idea and let it go."
"A Treatise on the New" calls for the expression of the Self of love in form, prepares the reader for the birth of a new relationship between the physical and spiritual, and for a role in creating a new future: "Many predictions of the future have been made, and many of them have been called prophecy. But the future is yet to be created. The future depends on you who are willing to leave learning behind and who are willing to accept your new roles as creators of the new - creators of the future".
