A Course in Miracles talks about magic a lot.  As is always the case, what the Course means by magic isn’t what most of us think of.  “Magic is the mindless or the miscreative use of mind.” It is the miscreations of the ego thought system trying to…

Part of the benefit of listening to A Course in Miracles while I drive is that it is mind-retraining.  I notice the flaws in my own thinking, most of which stem from the “one problem” of thinking that I am separate from God.  In the awareness of…
