WHAT IS A COURSE IN MIRACLES – ORIGINAL EDITION?
The Course is the result of the collaboration between two Columbia University psychologists: Dr. William T. Thetford and his colleague, Dr. Helen Schucman.
In 1965, Helen experienced what she described as a Voice which spoke clearly in her mind, saying “This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.” With Thetford’s support and assistance in transcribing her shorthand notes, Dr. Schucman took down some 1,500 typewritten pages of A Course in Miracles over a period of seven years.
As she often explained, she heard a kind of inner dictation and felt compelled to write it down, even though at times she disagreed with the content and resisted the process. The voice, which spoke through Helen, clearly identified himself as Jesus.
The “original edition” is the unabridged volume of the Course as it was completed by Dr. Schucman and Dr. Thetford in 1972 and before further editing had taken place.
WHAT IS COURSE IN MIRACLES SOCIETY?
Course in Miracles Society [CIMS] is a 501 (c)(3) [non-profit] organization incorporated in 2000 which holds the copyright on A Course in Miracles Original Edition©. It is an international group of Course students and teachers organized to discover, authenticate, and propagate the Divine Teachings of A COURSE IN MIRACLES.
As students, we seek to increase our knowledge of Jesus' words and to deepen our experience of His teaching.
As teachers, we work to circulate the message of A COURSE IN MIRACLES throughout the world by our words, our deeds, and by the example of our lives.
WHY ARE THERE PEARLS ON THE COVER?
In the months preceding the beginning of the dictation of A Course in Miracles, Dr. Helen Schucman experienced a series of vivid waking and sleeping dreams. In three of those dreams, she was presented with a book. It was thick and black and had large gold letters on the cover. In one of those dreams, she saw it draped in a strand of pearls.
That image is reproduced in the artwork for this edition in homage to Dr. Schucman’s perseverance and dedication to the completion of the Course.
There is an ancient symbolism to pearls. From the earliest of times, pearls have been considered miraculous. Unique in all the world of nature, their beauty comes from the most mundane of substances and yet, it is somehow transformed by a living organism into one of the most beautiful objects known to man.
And it is the way pearls “play” with light that gives them their fascinating beauty and their almost mythical status. Pearls have become, in other words, an archetypal image of what can happen to the human mind that dedicates itself to perfection, utilizing the hard knocks of daily living as a stimulus to growth.
“The Pearl of Great Price”.
That which is of such momentous value that you would sell all that you own to possess it.
“Pearls of Wisdom”
Thoughts which illuminate and simplify one’s thinking, bringing peace and clarity.
“A String of Pearls”
A veritable chain of wisdom and insights, spreading out and then interweaving as a string of brilliant flashes that lighten up the very dark world around us.
A string of pearls is, in other words, the perfect symbol for ~”A Course in Miracles.
Ratings and Reviews
Hello. I just downloaded your App. It looks great, very complete with all three sections and audio. I appreciate all of your work! However, I find the audio speaker’s voice a bit slow for my ears and taste. And, some may find it a bit fast to follow. Most audio Apps have the ability to set the audio speed to various rates; 0.8, 1, 1.25, 1.5, etc. I think this App would be just perfect if you could add an audio speed button like most audio Apps to accommodate those of us whose ears and brains process words at a different rate than the speaker is reading! Is this possible? Could you please add this in the next update version? Thanks so much for your time!
ACIM is life changing. Ive been waiting for this app for 20 years
Traveling around the world, I cannot imagine being without this app on my iPhone and iPad. It is always easily with you, all texts offered in a well designed app. Most importantly, easy to access daily lessons every single day. A bonus for me is the ability to LISTEN to a professional voice artist reading the texts with a beautiful European tone. Feels very personalized as if Jesus is speaking directly to YOU. The subtle background music is inspired. I look forward to my time with ACIM every day. Give it a solid month, you will see a positive change in your perception and approach to this world or dreams we live in . . . and be at peace. Thank you for the effort put into this.
Audio too slow and not adjustable
Love everything about the app except the audio. I can’t even bear to listen to it at the delay and speed. I use the reading feature on my iPhone but wish it was just in the app so I can adjust it. It’s waaaaaay too slow. And the music is nice but unnecessary I feel.
Thank you all for what you do. 🙏 Please fix. 🙏
