This book challenges all prior thought and is a book one will re-read over & over & over! ( )
  marsha.carmichael | Oct 29, 2012 |
Freudian concepts of unconscious guilt are prevelant, and brought to the fore with zeal. Forgiveness is emphasized as the ultimate method for finding a path to the truth, and complements very well concepts in buddism, and Christianity. Renard does a good job of reconciling Eastern and Western philosophies; his Socratic method of dialogue with "ascended masters" may be viewed with tongue in cheek as apposed to taking literally. However, the message and power at times is no less relevant no matter what the style or source.

  • Il est ni en colère ni vindicatif et n'a pas la moindre envie de punir son fils. Voilà comment est Dieu ! Il ne pense pas comme les humains car Il n'est pas une personne.


  • En attendant, vos croyances cachées continueront de vous dominer et de s'affirmer d'une façon prédéterminée. Le monde ne fait que réaliser un scénario symbolique auquel chacun a consenti à participer avant même de sembler arriver ici.

  • Vos bons moments en ce monde ne sont bons qu'en comparaison des mauvais.

  • Tu n'écouterais pas ton système de pensée inconscient s'il ne se cachait pas et ne te trompait pas, car il est si manifestement détestable et il cause tant de douleur quand on l'écoute que tu fuirais si tu pouvais réellement l'axaminer.


  • Le christianisme est tellement en conflit avec lui-même qu'il proclamme ouvertement des enseignements contradictoires. Comment quelqu'un pourrait-il s'y retrouver ? Les gens vont finir par cesser de blâmer J pour certaines des absurdités que le christianisme a commises et continue à commettre en son nom. J n'a pas plus à voir avec cela que Dieu n'a à voir avec ce monde.

  • La première personne qui a dit que « plus ça change, plus c'est pareil » a touché la cible universelle en son plein centre holographique.

  • Tu apprendras que les bébés ne naissent pas avec unn dossier vierge et une tendance naturelle à l'amour, pour être ensuite corrompus par le monde. Tu découvrira que tu devras travailler un peu pour retourner à Dieu; non pas travailler dans le monde, mais sur tes pensées.


  • Il y a vous et Dieu, apparemment séparés l'un de l'autre. Dieu, Qui est vraiment réel, semble distant et illusoire. Le monde qui est vraiment illusoire, semble immédiat et réel.

  • L'absurde tragédie de la dualité est considérée comme normale par toutes les sociétés modernes, qui sont elles-mêmes complètement folles.


  • Dieu n'est pas la cause de votre situation. Peut-être étiez-vous toujours la seule personne qui se trouvait là quand sembla s'effrondrer. L'Amour parfait ne peut être responsable que du bien. Tout le reste doit donc venir d'ailleurs.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0965680959, Paperback)

What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when two mysterious strangers appeared from out of nowhere — and then told you they were "ascended masters" who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous powers of forgiveness? Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for pizza?

When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them (and ask a lot of impertinent questions). The result is this startling book: an extraordinary record of 17 mind-bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the author’s life and giving the world an uncompromising perspective on A Course in Miracles — a spiritual teaching destined to change human history.

"During our exchanges you will find out what you really are, how you got here, exactly why you and all other people behave and feel the way that you do, why the universe keeps repeating the same patterns over and over again, why people get sick, the reason behind all failure, accidents, addictions and natural disasters, the real cause of all of the violence, crime, war and terrorism in the world, the only meaningful solution to all of these things and how to apply it. . .You will not find compromise with us, and you will not always like it. That doesn’t matter. If we gave you everything you think you want, you’d be looking for something else a month later. With God’s speed we followed our way home. Our intention now is to help you find yours."
