Where does A Course in Miracles: Text, Vol. 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Have to rate this audio book pretty high. How is it possible for a channeled book to articulate such a mind purified message. I get that the scribe was a very articulate and brilliant thinker; was it really channeled well to tell the truth i actually dont care, One is amused however by the audio's delicate omission of the scribes obvious allusions to modern psychology and especially the name freud ...to tell the truth i find the entire text rather spellbinding, it was as if i had entered some alternative universe where the things i imagined as real were now almost absurd. At last i thought a way out of the labyrinth can this really be possible? as a beginner i am still struggling to following the various threads. I read with awe that the cause of all my suffering has been this wrong mindedness. what then is a pure mind i ask ..is a non perceptual reality or mind really possible. ....wow
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The book begins with an amazing premise. Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God. and so what is real and what is dream. We are informed very early on that in the genesis account of creation Adam was put to sleep by god and yet no where is it ever mentioned that he ever woke up. Now this notion of dreaming is a fundamental eastern philosophy and yet in the course one is excited to discover that man is not abandoned in his dream or trance like state. The buddhist concept of this maya is that the mind from begingless time to eternity is enslaved by the same or similar false perception..... in the course we have this disembodied voice of jesus the awakened one saying not so much wake up but to realise that none of this weaking or dreaming is really happening..... so i ask why would we not just run amok and do as we please; well maybe thats what we have been doing for eternity, are we happy with this mere eternity or is it actually possible to walk off the stage into a non or acasual other reality? i am rambling thinking aloud suffice to say that the course why sstill beyond my puny mind alludes to possibilities that i could not have imagined and thats sweet.

Having heard so much about the 'Course In Miracles', I thought that it would flow and be much like Rhonda Byrnes or Marianne Williamson. This is not easy reading. Many people tell me 'The Four Agreements' is difficult to understand and I find it very fluid and easy to read and understand. 'The 'Course in Miracles' is not nighttime reading. It is what it says, a course. You have to be alert and focused to understand the concepts and teachings. It is no wonder that people convene to study the teachings in a group. I think this is the route to take if you really want to comprehend this book.

....as far as i am able to say, a true teaching. Even those working other paths back home might be fascinated and uplifted. i cannot compliment the narrator enough, Jim Stewart, who speaks in a clear voice intoning the words as only someone could who understands them, at a steady pace helping the listener with the flow of ideas. I far prefer to listen to ACIM now, to reading the text.

This audio version of A Course in Miracles is so powerful that I can only listen to it a bit a time. The teachings and principles are so deep that it drops down into my awareness and learning and resonnates the sound of truth.
Who could have the depth of maturity and mastery of understanding of the material and make such a magnificent job of it but for Jim Stewart? He reads the book with such a sense of embodied knowledge. It makes me feel fully connected to the work.
A Course in Miracles is a large volume of text to read and to digest and for me p be able to listen to it be shared in such a calm and peaceful way is a real gift.
I recommend this audio book to anyone interested in A Course in Miracles even if you have the book I suggest it goes into different channels of learning in the listening format.
Wonderful piece of work - thank you.

I really struggled with this. There were lots of little pearls of info but also a lot of rambling. I probably need a year of studying this book to get a good grasp on it.
