Principles of Miracles

Slides and Notes used in class are HERE. Recorded Videos of this Series are HERE


This Series is an Intermediate-level study of the Principles of Miracles, from Chapter 1 of the Textbook of A Course in Miracles.

To distinguish between different views of Miracle Principles:

  • the bounded view of ego, wants to “get it”, to limit an idea to a fixed and singular meaning, a little view, a definition, which is memorized, rigidly held in place, resisting change, defending it’s view, insisting on being right.
  • unbounded view of Holy Spirit, who extends and integrates ideas, frees them to encompass more and more, until they are seen in all people and situations.
Consciousness is correctly identified as the domain of the ego. The ego is a man-made attempt to perceive himself as he wished to be rather than as he is.
