The text of The Course is really where the eye-opening takes place. Yet it can be the epitome of obscurity. When I began studying The Course back in 1994, sometimes I would read a chapter and feel as though someone threw a grenade into my mind. I was just, “What?”. So I laid it aside, with reverence, occasionally opening it up for bits of enlightenment whenever The Spirit moved me. I picked it up again in earnest recently and realized that my studies of other spiritual materials over the years must be paying off. The Course seems to make a lot more sense to me now. I find myself highlighting every other sentence! And it’s great that I am reading it on my Kindle because whenever these “Ah Ha!” moments strike I can just type in a footnote. Remember, thoughts are indeed things and it is imperative to make note of them when important ones appear. I’m still having a struggle with some of the daily lessons though. The Course does warn in the very beginning that some of the lessons will be startling and some actively resisted. This certainly seems to be the case for me.
