Introduction

Welcome! First, a brief introduction about us… We are Julie (Julianne Victoria) of the blog Through the Peacock’s Eyes and Lisa of the blog bloomlisa. We began studying A Course in Miracles together in early 2014. We study four lessons each week and then meet via Skype once per week to discuss what we’ve learned, any insights, lesson parallels in personal life, as well as ways the lessons and messages of the Course could be more accessible to people of all backgrounds.

Though it is non-denominational, A Course in Miracles is written from a Christian perspective. I (Julie) went to a Roman Catholic elementary school from ages five to thirteen, so the wording and semantics are very familiar to me. Interestingly, as I read and study the Course, I often “translate” the terminology into Buddhist or Yogic terms. Lisa, however, comes from a non-religious background, so for her the Christian terminology is sometimes challenging to see past. Together, however, we are able to give each other different perspectives and insights into the lessons of A Course in Miracles.

During our last Skype meeting last week in this month of May 2014, we decided to start up a new blog together to share what we’ve learned, our insights, and any messages we’d like to put out there to help others, both those who are studying the Course and those not studying it who are looking for some spiritual guidance. We hope this blog will be helpful to you and shed some light upon the miracles occurring all around.

Here is the Introduction from A Course in Miracles:

This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is what is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. 

This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:

Nothing real can be threatened.

Nothing unreal exists.

Herein lies the peace of God.

  1. Dear Julie and Lisa, I have tried numerous times to read this wonderful Book which my late friend gave me.. She would always be referring to it, and yet for some reason every time I sat down to try and read through I would end up putting it away and saying I will read it soon in more depth, as I would just dip in and out of it..

    May be I was meant to put it off until now and follow what you and both have to say.. 🙂 I will be back later to read more, as I have to go make dinner 🙂 xxx

  2. I am so glad I stumbled upon this website today. I literally pulled that book (ACIM) that has been hiding in my bookshelf and tried to read it last night and I wished someone made it into bite side pieces to make it easier for me to digest everyday. Thank you for creating this website, Julie and Lisa! I will be following your posts. 🙂

  3. Hi guys,
    This is an awesome service that you will be providing throughout the blogosphere.
    I look forward to reading your insights about this extraordinary material.

    in light,
    Linda
