The story of the Course began when, in the midst of an environment of intense competition and negative attitudes, Columbia University clinical psychologist Dr. William T. Thetford decided he had had enough and declared to his colleague, Dr. Helen Schucman, “There must be another way, and I’m determined to find it.” Dr. Schucman vowed to help him.With Thetford’s support and assistance in transcribing her shorthand notes, Schucman took down some fifteen hundred typewritten pages of A Course in Miracles over a period of seven years. Schucman did not claim to be the author of the material herself. As she often explained, she heard a kind of inner dictation and she felt compelled to write it down, even though at times she disagreed with the content and resisted the process.The dictation of A Course in Miracles was completed in September 1972 and resulted in three volumes—the Text, the Workbook for Students, and the Manual for Teachers. As the development of the material progressed, Schucman and Thetford faced the formidable task of organizing the original typescript (often called the “Urtext”) into what would become A Course in Miracles. They divided the Text into chapters and sections and gave titles to each, and they removed a great deal of material from the early chapters, material they believed was meant for them personally, not for the Course. The edition that resulted from those efforts is A Course in Miracles - Original Edition, published by Course in Miracles Society.

All things come in perfect timing in perfect alignment. Thinking Christlike, humbling oneself to the will of His which is our will because we are one and simply learning how to reconnect with the one we call our Father, our God on a deeper, less resistant level. It makes living this life easier, freer, happier. Only on Capter One, been here for a few weeks. This book called to me although I realize I called it. I heard of it about two years ago. This book came to be a few years before I came into existence. Showing to me that He is the same today as He was yesterday and forever will be. It is the mind that changes He remains the same. This book seems to provoke new thought patterns and it should. It is written in the Bible yet the parables misunderstood. This is an excellent read! Explains a lot. Learning a lot!
