If you have “weight loss” high on your list of New Year’s Resolution you might want to consider asking God for help. While your issue might show up as a weight problem if you put your relationship with God up to number 1 on your list for 2011 you might just solve all your problems in one hit.

Lesson three of A Course In Weight Loss Marianne Williamson talks about “building your altar”. As in AA or A Course In Miracles we come to that point where we realize we can’t fix the problem. “I can’t solve the problem but God will if I let him.”

A Course in Miracles: The Book for Our Time

September 21, 2009

This is a great article writtern by Andrea Chalupa from the Huffington Post. The article Andrea mentions from the New York Times caused quite a stir when Carrie Bradshaw quoted Marianne Williamson as the author of a Course In Miracles. Anyone who knows A Course In Miracles knows that the author is Jesus Christ. Consequently the correction was made fairly swiftly.

A Course in Miracles: The Book for Our Time

The New York Times Styles section had this great article on the growing hunger for spirituality as the new obsession for New York’s Carrie Bradshaw. Sure, the pop culture reference is fun, but spirituality is a lot more than visualizing your perfect husband or landing an article in the Style’s section. It’s seeing love–God–in all situations, in yourself, in everyone you meet, something that takes serious practice, study, and dedication–especially in this city.

The best thing about this growing movement–yes, I’ve seen my friends replace retail therapy with meditation–is that it’s introducing more and more people to A Course in Miracles (ACIM). Marianne Williamson and Eckhart Tolle, spiritual advisors on Oprah, derive their books and teachings from this life-changing course.

As someone who studies the written word, I’ve never seen writing like ACIM, and I studied psychology and intellectual history in college. The best way to describe it is thought-level writing. This is not a book written by man, “written down” yes…

In New York in the 1970s, Helen Schucman and William Thetford, Professors of Medical Psychology at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City, hated each other. Think of your most annoying co-worker drama–theirs was like that. After a particularly bad fight, Schucman thought: there must be a better way. And that’s when the voice came to her, saying simply: This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.

She had a series of vivid dreams leading up to hearing the voice. And she knew she had to work with her colleague and make peace with him. She did, and at first they kept it secret as they worked as scribes for The Voice, afraid their colleagues in academia would be appalled. Over the years they produced the door-stopper sized text, which is Jesus Christ clarifying his original teachings, which, as we know, have been lost and twisted from their original meaning for many.

Though it’s a huge book, which I like to use as my magic eight ball of answers, ACIM has a simple message it gently teaches in a coaching, loving Voice, in the Voice of Christ: you have two choices when it comes to your freedom of choice–fear and love. That’s it–that’s what every “problem” in the world boils down to. And fear cannot exist since it is not a part of God, because anything outside of God is death. Then you simply have one choice–and that is love. Love is life and peace, and a mind at peace communicates with God. Communication with God is life, creativity, limitless power. Anything that makes you feel small, jealous, angry, guilty, vengeful springs from fear, products of the ego that just want to destroy you. That is the only temptation, to resist attack in all its many forms. Because when you attack, you’re attacking yourself and cutting off communication with God.

When people ask, how can there be a God when there’s so much pain and suffering in the world, God didn’t create that, we did. But the current darkness is falling away like eroded cliffs under the deluge of spiritual hunger. And this is one trend that will win out.
