"Hey Ruby,   Ever consider having a Mark Nepo section with what you've written consolidated? Or have you already?  "

"Hi Eric, I so agree with you about "I'm glad to have found the earlier editions of the course. I find them to be much more warm and personable to the FIP version. " The personal exchanges between Helen and Jesus are so endearing in…"

Do you have a web site? a blog?

More about myself:
I love music, especially the blues. I enjoy paying guitar and reading all kinds of books.

I am, I suppose shy, but am a goofball when I get to know people, but I can also be a very serious person.

I accidently(?) stumbled upon this spiritual path about 9 months ago while I was on a quit smoking message board helping people to quit smoking. Something that I have done for a few years now and am grateful that I have been able to help many people. I never thought that it would bring me to a spiritual path, for I was not (consciously) seeking it out.
Favorite Movies:
Too many to whittle down :-)
Favorite Books:
ACIM, The Power of Now, The Third Jesus, The Tao Te Ching , Stillness Speaks and so many others
Do you promise to respect others in this network and refrain from spamming? *
yes

Hugh Prather- Will the Course Exist in the 21st Century?

                          Hugh Prather

The information I give here about the early days of the Course is sprinkled with a few direct observations but comes primarily from many conversations my wife Gayle and I had with Bill Thetford over the years.  If there are any inaccuracies, please chalk these up to my faulty memory of…

The Course Has Nothing to Do With Behavior?

Posted on February 20, 2013 at 8:24am 8 Comments

One of the most quoted lines in the course is the line, “This is a course in cause and not effect.” I think it is also many times misunderstood to mean that the course is not about behavior. Yet the course never says it is not about behavior. It says that we cannot correct error at the level of effect (behavior) and that correction must be made at the level of the mind, but this in no way dismisses or disregards behavior…

What Accepting the Atonement for Oneself Mean to Me

Posted on February 20, 2013 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Jesus sends us into the world, fulfilling certain functions….We are sent to certain people….If, for example, our work takes us to the inner city…If we teach suffering and neglected children…If we seek to help free those who are oppressed…
Jesus needs us to be his apostles of peace, or teachers of God, because only through us can he complete the saving work he undertook to begin in his own life….He needs our…

Thoughts on the Independent Individual

Posted on September 8, 2012 at 7:49pm 1 Comment

   It should be clear by now that, while the content of any particular ego-illusion does not matter, it is usually more helpful to correct it in a specific context. Ego-illusions are quite specific, although they frequently change and although the mind is naturally abstract. The mind nevertheless becomes concrete voluntarily as soon as it splits. However, only part of it splits, so only part of it is concrete. The concrete part…

Thank you sweetie =) I too had a peacefilled day =)

I think it is more me than Anne =D lol
I like simple. I LOVED the "Twilight" series which was written for teens/young adults. I'm an oldie...lol =) It was just easy for me to read and easy to follow along. I may try "Interview" again. If I do I'll let you know how it goes =D

Wishing you a most wonderfilled weekend ahead <3

Much love and peace,
Nicole~

Hi Eric =)
I think you make sense =D Me, I never make sense...lol =D But that's ok =) It's very nice to meet you sweetie.

I do LOVE Vampire books, but I have had a hard time reading Anne Rice. I'm not sure if it's her style of writing or what =( I keep trying though =) I LOVE the movie "Interview with the Vampire" and I have the book, but have never been able to get past the second chapter =( Maybe I should try the one you mentioned =)

Well, I am off to work. I look forward to getting to know you (I talk A LOT!!! lol) and I hope you have a peacefilled day <3

Much love and peace ^_^V

Thank you so much for Eric for your Tolle recommendations. I have most of them and will be uploading them shortly. I will look up the Findhorn Retreat recordings. I know what you mean about Eckhart being a "pretty funny guy"...LOL. It seems Presence just liberates our spirit... I've always felt laughter and music to be expressions and food for the spirit. I so love your writing in the blogs. Thanks for sharing. I will email you about Stillness Speaks. Love and blessings, Ruby
