Excellent Overview of "A Course in Miracles"

"For the Novice, who has not been exposed to these teachings, I feel this is an excellent overview. The "real work" begins once the Novice chooses to study the actual teachings and implement them into one's daily life. I have been a student of the Course for 33 years, some of which I broke the habit of daily practice. Once I realized something just isn't quite right in my current place in life, I got back into the teachings and daily lessons and picked right up to get back on track. The "Course in Miracles" is a required course, and this is explained in the Introduction to the Text. If one is looking for truth and answers to our existence, this Course covers it all. The Novice must have an open mind to begin. The student must be willing to consider the possibility of seeing the world differently than the ideas that this material world currently support. This Course puts you in touch with who YOU really are...a beautiful spirit always connected to the source within. Using the process of forgiveness defined by the Course, you will learn how to return to your original state of Love and Atonement (at one-ness). I highly recommend these teachings!!"

"This is in two parts. The first part is kind of an illustration (i.e. video dream sequence of Helen Schucman and how she came to scribe A Course in Miracles) and some very interesting interviews of people who knew Helen and were around at the time. There are also some segments by a variety of peoples speaking of how they apply the Course in their lives, and what effect that the Course has had.
I even thought a few of those segments were kind of boring ... until i watched a few times and thought "My God this person has AMAZING insights!". The opposite of boring! I need to tattoo this on my hand so i always remember it!
The second half is an old black and white interview with Kenneth Wapnick (who i agree will be thought of historically, as most amazing teacher of the course). I could see how some of the Course principles, so baldly stated (but yes, explained) are the exact opposite of the way most people view life, and this could make the principles just feel totally un-understandable to total newbies ... although how knows ... it might just be totally intriguing.
All in all ... a great little "delight" for those who are already studying the course... and perhaps some new intriguing and awesome ideas for "newbies".
A little "old-fashioned", but i'm never put off by that!!!
p.s. Clay Aiken rules!!! :)"
