A lot of people say, “I can’t understand A Course in Miracles. It is too difficult to me.” Then I could step forward and say, “ACIM gives us the Thoughts of God.” Then you would surely say, “Prove it.” But when you approach it like that there is very little I can say to you. You can will yourself to read the Course from cover to cover. You can get out your yellow pads and make notes along the way. You can finish your project and what will you be left with? An OPINION on A Course in Miracles. And your opinion means nothing. Nothing will give you nothing. Then I could say to you, “The Course is not to be believed. It is not a new theology, a new dogma. It is an undoing.” It helps you to undo the mistakes you made in perception. What does it take to undo? It takes first a little willingness to agree that just perhaps things are not the way you think they are. Beyond that it takes “the ears to hear.” Jesus constantly said, “Let him who has the ears to hear, hear.” How would you give yourself the ears to hear? You would be determined to go beyond your unwillingness to change. Krishnamurti said, “the real problem of man is his unwillingness to change.” If you would give yourself the ears to hear you would have to go beyond the unwillingness to change.” That by itself seems too big of a move, so the Course takes you by the hand and gives you daily lessons that help you to go beyond the unwillingness to change. As you go through the lessons you will soon see that your mind is changing. There is more space, more light. You will soon see that the text is very easy to read. And every line has within it the ability to bring you to the truth. If you have the ears to hear it would bring you to the truth. And then you will not ask me to prove anything. You will know.
