Don't Be Conflict Averse

by Rev. Tony Ponticello

Woman Avoinding Conflict

Stay Away Conflict!

Here's another quote. "What you must understand . . ." I always like it when A Course in Miracles uses terms like "must." That means we must understand what it is going to say next. It is English after all. So what it says is, "What you must understand is that when you do not share a thought system, you are weakening it. Those who believe in it therefore perceive this as an attack on them." (OrEd.Tx.6.71) If we don't share the thought system that we are bodies and that the world is real – if we don't share the thought system that we have a limited life – and we are trying to teach a thought system that life is unlimited, that we are spirits and that we are not actually bodies then all those who believe firmly in body and world – which is still a vast majority of people – are going to perceive that we are attaching them. And so, we we'll get into conflict if we are doing what A Course in Miracles is telling us to do. Our message is not necessarily going to be welcome. 

That took me a very long time to understand. I thought our message would be the "good news," because to me it seems like good news, but it is difficult for a lot of people to accept these ideas. They are fully entrenched in the idea of a limited physical reality life. So, we're telling people – or we're telling ourselves since the people we encounter are just a reflection of ourselves – that we are eternal and infinite. But a lot of people just plain don't want to hear that. Even a lot of A Course in Miracles students still don't really want to hear that. A lot of A Course in Miracles students, a lot of spiritual students, I think are just looking for something that will help them feel a little bit better as they walk steadily on to disintegration and death. (laughter) They just do. A lot of people study A Course in Miracles so they can be a little bit happier in the world as they go along, age, and do the things they think that bodies do. Eventually they die, and isn't there a way to feel a little better about that whole process?

The Gloriousness of Our Greatness

by Rev. Tony Ponticello

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein — 'Think Different'

We A Course In Miracles students should seek a future different from the past in amazing ways, in miraculous ways. We want a world transformed. We want a world where there isn't sickness and death. We want a world that reflects reality where life is infinite and eternal. That's when earth and Heaven will cease to exist as separate states. In the reading this morning, it was describing the real world, which is the world we are all supposed to be manifesting. It is not talking about Heaven. The real world isn't Heaven, it's this world transformed and healed. Most people skip over this teaching because it's way too challenging. Let me just read to you a little bit about it.

"Sit quietly and look upon the world you see, and tell yourself, The real world is not like this. It has no buildings, and there are no streets where people walk alone and separate. There are no stores where people buy an endless list of things they do not need. It is not lit with artificial light, and night comes not upon it. There is no day that brightens and grows dim. There is no loss. Nothing is there but shines, and shines forever." (OrEd.12.58.59)

That is the future that we are trying to make that is very different from the past. We're trying to make a whole, different, future physical reality. It's a physical reality where there isn't even day and night.It will be just day and always light. There isn't sickness and death. That's the future that we're seeking that's different from the past. We're trying to manifest a totally different world. We are trying to manifest a world that is such a close reflection of heaven that they cease to exist as separate states, and just "good" people are never going to do that. Awesome, glorious, and great people are going to do that, and that is what I want to do. I want to inspire people to be awesome, glorious, and truly great people. My teaching is not just for good people who want to study something to be a little more peaceful, and a little happier, maybe, as they steadily march toward the grave. That's just not good enough. That's just not my energy.

Ordination Service: July 16, 2016

by Rev. Josh, Rev. Elvie, & Rev. Mary

Reverends: Josh, Elvie, & Mary

New Reverends: Josh, Elvie, & Mary

Then I had to look for a program that was the right fit for me. I knew it had to be non-denominational. I needed to know it was more about reaching within. Then a program appeared, and I tried it for a few weeks but it didn't work. Then I found Community Miracles Center and it was the perfect match.

When I grew up – from a very early age, from two or three– I took on the story that I had a speech impediment. I thought, "I'm not going to speak well, and I'm going to always have problems with my speech." That is just a story, and I understand that. But when I came to this class, it was all about talking on the phone, not seeing anybody, and it totally psyched me out. But with the love, understanding, and the support from every member of the class, I just felt more at home, and then even more at home. It gave me more confidence to just be who I was and to not worry about what my blocks are. Just do what you have to do, and people are there to support you and to love you. I am very grateful to each person, each classmate I had.

One of the things I learned from that class, being in that class, was that we were all teachers and we were all students like the Course says. At times I had to give my words of wisdom, and I knew that God was going to help me. Also for me, most of the time, it was just sitting down and listening to what others had to say – to get the wisdom of the team, as a student and as the teacher. I then learned that we all take this information differently. Every single person is doing their best and is understanding the Course according to our own lives and our life experience. Each of us has that special essence to teach this teaching to other people who can understand as they gravitate to us.

The Magic of Simon and Miracles

by Karla Middlebrooks

Magician with Hat

Subitle: A Biblical Perspective and a Course Perspective

The Bible attributes miracle working power to the Holy Spirit. The events that include the story of Simon occurred in the Book of Acts that follow the Pentecost or the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles. The Bible and the Course are consistent in this particular sense. As is described in Miracle Principle 39 — "The Spiritual Eye [the Holy Spirit] is the mechanism of miracles because what It perceives is true. It perceives both the creations of God and the creations of man. Among the creations of man, It can also separate the true from the false by Its ability to perceive totally rather than selectively." (OrEd.Tx.1.56) Within the story of Simon, we can observe additional consistencies with the Course's teaching on miracles.

We see in the healings and miracles that the Apostles perform alignment with Principles 5 and 14. Principle 5 states, "Miracles are habits and should be involuntary. They should not be under conscious control." (OrEd.Tx.1.5) The Apostles are spreading the teachings of Jesus and are traveling through the countryside spreading the message to all. Their actions are applied to all people they meet. There is no indication that their healings are reserved for specific types of worshippers or followers. Principle 14 states, "Miracles bear witness to truth. They are convincing because they arise from conviction. Without conviction they deteriorate into magic." (OrEd.Tx.1.14) We might speculate that this is possibly one of the reasons that the Apostle's miracles surpass the "magic" Simon has been performing and have greater impact on those who were healed. Simon appears to realize this, stops performing his magic, and begins to follow the Apostles.
