52 ways to live the Course in Miracles : cultivate a simpler, slower, more love-filled life
Casey, Karen2016
The impact A Course In Miracles (ACIM) has had on Karen Casey's life is immeasurable. First introduced to ACIM during the early stages of sobriety when she hung on to Alcoholics Anonymous like her life depended on it (and, of course, it did), she yearned for something that could quiet her near constant anxiety. ACIM has done that for her, bringing her a simpler, softer, slower, and more loving life. "Writing a book of essays about the course, suggesting how one can practice it for personal benefit, is so pleasurable. Every word I write is a constant reminder to me of how to cultivate greater peace in my own life. What could be better than that? Nothing comes to mind, frankly." -from the introduction 52 Ways to Live the Course In Miracles takes readers on a journey through simple ideas and affirmations for meditation. Casey not only offers an explanation of the ideas, but also shares her own experiences with them--stumbles and all--offering proof of how helpful and practical they really are and showing that the goal isn't perfection, but rather progress toward creating a life of love and peace.
