Classes on A Course in Miracles
Contemporary Pure Non-Dualism – Discussions 1 through 12
Classes on A Course in Miracles Series Volume I
by Darryl E Berry Jr
A Course in Miracles is an expression of pure non-dualism, which is an attitude of learning that represents the highest or most advanced perspective of thought possible. The result of full application is the end of all pain – physical and psychological; and the end of the cycle of birth and death. But along the way there are many signposts, such as less stress and more inner peace. Each day this thought system proves itself to me to be true, and each day I become more willing to apply it in my life.
It’s no accident that we experience anguish and pain – whether seemingly physical or seemingly psychological, whatever its causes seem to be. And it’s possible to be free of these expressions of fear, if we’re willing to train our minds to think in a radically different way. This book is about that different way.
I haven’t completed my journey yet. There is still inner work for me left to do. I want to make that clear. I’m simply aware of the progress I’ve made and am making. I’m aware of the greater inner peace I’m learning to accept. And I’m aware of the understanding I have of this material. There is something of value herein for both the beginning student as well as the long-time practitioner, as I’ve found in my teaching and in my travels that most students of the Course have fundamental misunderstandings of the Course’s teachings.
It’s possible to have experiences outside and beyond our everyday perspectives and interpretations. It’s possible to have experiences that give something to compare the world to, rather than just dividing the world into meaningless distinctions and comparing it to itself. There’s a real alternate to the world’s solutions, which have continually failed us – and continually will. Once you have a taste of inner peace and universal perspective, while you will waver in your vigilance, you will never completely go back, for you will know that there’s a better way.Darryl E Berry Jr
