I commend it to all on the Journey. Nan C. Merrill, author, Psalms for Praying In Frank Wests beautiful memoir From Guilt to the Gift of Miracles, we find the journey of a soul leading progressively through illusion, unhappiness and nightmares to a purging of darkness and the realization that; it is only as we learn to forgive and let go of illusion (i.e. nothing) that we can be healed ourselves and thereby have the opportunity of help others. Jon Mundy Ph.D. The Institute for Personal Religion - Publisher of Miracles magazine In From Guilt to the Gift of Miracles, psychotherapist Frank West gives us an intimate and moving memoir of his lifes journey of over eighty yearsfrom his growing up poor in a Pennsylvania coal town during the Depression, through his war experiences during World War II, to his postwar search for inner peace and true contact with the miraculous. His search led him first to the Christian ministry, then to a career as a psychotherapist and family counselor, and finally to his discovery of the remarkable spiritual path known as A Course in Miracles. Frank offers the reader the opportunity to benefit in a very real way from the personal experiences he recounts here, for it is Franks belief that the way the therapist heals his patientand by extension, all his brothers and sistersis by doing the long, careful, and ultimately holy work of healing himself. That is the healing Frank offers us in this remarkable book. That, and his unmovable faith that each and every one of us has already in his own mind the Love that is his true home, and that, together, we will find it.
THE STORY OF JESUS: AN INTUITIVE ANTHOLOGY Many contemporary Christians suspect that there is more to Jesus and his enduring message than the little that has survived in historical writings and the legendary Christian tradition. This book offers a narrative account of Jesus' life from the perspective of twenty contemporary writers who have developed their natural intuitive abilities to an unusually high level. They are therefore able to bring forth new and detailed information not ordinarily accessible by historical or literary means. Some of them had demonstrated their unusual skill by probing deeply into the personal lives and minds of historical individuals other than Jesus, while some had provided important and detailed technical information which was then verified scientifically. They apply their intuitive skills here to uncover fresh information about the man Jesus, his contemporaries and his extensive teachings which never found their way into the New Testament Gospels and related historical documents. These new findings offer a much richer view of the man himself than that available from traditional Christian sources. They also provide illuminating insights and a deep spiritual understanding of Jesus' original and hidden teachings. The Story of Jesus is essential reading for all inquirers and seekers into these hidden and previously lost portions of Christian spiritual history.
A Primer to Living the Light Within Us According to the Tao
Author: Daniel Frank
Pubpsher: Balboa Press
How do we recognize error in our thinking? How can we enjoy the spiritual benefits of practicing our religion while not condemning the religion of others? These questions are addressed in the eighty-one commentaries included in this book. These commentaries refer to, but are independent of, the illuminating and compelling essay collection about Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, as voiced in Change Your Thoughts--Change Your Life by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. Living "right," according to the Tao, anticipates that we have both the understanding needed to make right choices and the knowledge to recognize the types of behavior that are important for us to change. However, of equal or greater significance to these skills are the feelings that drive our internal motivation at our center. Many of us need to learn the life lessons that keep popping up as issues in our lives. They keep resurfacing until we finally recognize the lessons and actually learn them. We know we have really been learning our lessons when we notice that our intentions are genuinely beginning to change. We have absolutely no concept of how the connections we feel and know to be real actually come about, between ourselves and others, between us and the happenings of life, or between us and God. We often describe these feelings or experiences as resulting from some type of energy, but what might that really mean? Reflecting this unexplainable, invisible, but vital connection on the written page through symbolism provides our minds with a crutch to assist understanding and recall. Although the illustrations as drawn may have little or no basis in the facts, the understanding of the concepts that develop through their use helps us apply the "gems" that Lao-tzu speaks of in the Tao, to our lives.
The Message of A Course in Miracles is the first volume of a paragraph-by-paragraph translation of A Course in Miracles into plain, everyday language which brings its loving message to the surface so that you can attain a deeper understanding of it faster.

The popular spiritual teaching known A Course in Miracles (ACIM) presents a radically new vision of Christianity, using many of the familiar terms and ideas of "that old time religion" in refreshingly different ways. In a number of places, the Course refers to specific quotes from the Bible and reinterprets them in a new light. This handy compilation of Biblical references made in the Course is compiled by veteran ACIM teacher Gene Skaggs Jr., who presents each Bible quote with the Course's reinterpretation followed by brief, explanatory remarks of his own. An essential guidebook for anyone trying to understand the new vision of Christianity presented by A Course in Miracles.
