“In reading Darryl E. Berry Jr’s new book, Classes On A Course In Miracles: Contemporary Pure Non-Dualism – Discussions 1 through 12, I was continuously impressed by Darryl’s ability to stick to the principle of pure non-dualism. This is rare for authors or teachers of any discipline. Indeed, even teachings that were originally meant to be non-dualistic eventually devolved into dualism. I salute the author for his uncompromising work, and I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to save time on their ‘journey without distance’ home to God.”Gary R. Renard, the best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe trilogy.

The whole thing about this is – be right with yourself. That’s it. That’s it. That’s what all those [plastic] bags and oil companies are about.

Life comes at you, and if you’re frightened, or upset, or disconnected, that shows you the next Worksheet. Clean your house. Get it straight. That’s what grandmothers are for. That’s what Ukraine is for. That’s what Russia is for. That’s what Putin’s for. That’s what everything is for. All here for you. And you can do it from here. It’s a state of grace. – Byron Katie
