If your spiritual practice does not teach you how to respond appropriately to the changing circumstances in your life without compromising your spiritual values or losing your inner peace, what good is it? It is of little or no use. A Course in Miracles (ACIM) should be a practical course that helps you live a happier and self-fulfilled life today. Yet, for most, this remains an unfulfilled promise. Why? Because most people never complete the 365 daily Workbook Lessons associated with the text. The Workbook Lessons are designed to bypass the mind of your ego and open your heart. Yet, most either ignore, struggle or fail to grasp the true meaning of these lessons but you can change that. This book covers the 365 Daily Workbook Lessons. Each lesson is presented in "Dummies" format so that the richness of these lessons will become apparent, understandable and more importantly, practical. "Dummies" format demystifies the original workbook lessons by replacing the pronouns and unclear references with their meanings. This clarifies the purpose or meaning of each lesson. All antecedent references made to ACIM's Workbook Lessons are clearly noted in bold print for easy reference to the original text. Each lesson is then followed by an explanatory note to assist the reader with a deeper understanding of the lesson. The notes are designed to foster discussion and clarity, not to limit ideas and prevent individual interpretation. As such, ACIM Workbook for Dummies can be utilized as either a primary or secondary text for independent or group study. The ACIM for Dummies Series is an excellent reference tool for those who seek a deeper level of understanding of A Course In Miracles' teachings. The ACIM for Dummies series cuts thorough the mystery of the Course's esoteric text and makes Jesus' message alive and accessible to the ordinary reader. The richness and simplicity of ACIM's message of freedom, joy, forgiveness and unconditional love awaits anyone who is willing to see things differently. You can exchange your fear-based thought system for the peace of God. Happiness is only a choice away and you can make that choice today. This is your time to shine. You no longer have any excuse not to complete these lessons and finish the Course. A special thanks to Jon Mundy who provided the forward for this book.
May you live during interesting times: so goes an ancient Chinese blessing —or some say curse. That wish has come true for us. Now what? In this radically illuminating book, Alan Cohen delves into one of the world’s most venerated wisdom texts for answers and brings the lofty and enigmatic concepts of the Tao Te Ching down to earth in fresh, easy-to-grasp language with practical, personal examples we can use to uplift our daily lives. Most other interpretations of the Tao march through the stanzas one by one. Here Alan Cohen calls forth the ancient verses around themes that are central to our modern lives —from love to work to the lessons we learn from pain. Then he brings each message to life in short vignettes where he imagines himself a student of Lao Tse and interacts with the master directly and intimately. He invites you to join the ancient sage and the contemporary seeker as they wend their way through the challenges and triumphs of the same journey you’re taking yourself.

Beloved author and teacher Alan Cohen (A Course in Miracles Made Easy) uses his idiosyncratic, insightful spin on spiritual wisdom to show that we can enjoy significant career and financial success and be true to our passion and soul's calling. Can you create material success and keep your spirit alive? Is it possible to combine prosperity with purpose and passion? Can you sell your product without losing your soul? Expert coach and beloved teacher Alan Cohen demonstrates the answer is yes. In Spirit Means Business, he identifies--and then dismantles--the 10 primary illusions that keep us from connecting spirituality and prosperity. To name a few: * If you want to succeed, you have to suffer first * There's only so much to go around * Competition is healthy and necessary * To do well in your work, you must give up your life In each case, Alan shows us how to replace the illusion with a higher truth, using principles that always work when we apply them consciously. You'll learn from down-to-earth examples of individuals who have combined soul and success, and you'll find crisp, clear formulas to bridge the gaps and surmount the hurdles along the way. Drawing on wisdom sources from the Tao Te Ching to A Course in Miracles, as well as stories from Alan's clients and his own life, this book will help you navigate a spiritually sound path to the success you desire.
Taken from the original manuscript for the course, the only editing that has been done to this great spiritual classic has been to correct occasional typographic and spelling errors and to render capitalization and punctuation consistent.
