Arten and Pursah are back, and better than ever, with their uncompromising message and non-apologetic attitude, while enthusiastically sharing a very surprising and intriguing history and connection of Jesus and Buddha, and how they were able to help each other along their respective paths over several lifetimes on their journey towards enlightenment. Specifically, six different lifetimes are discussed. The four major attitudes of learning, which were explained in The Disappearance of the Universe but seemingly often overlooked by many of its readers, are revisited here in a much needed, in-depth fashion, reinforcing the distinctions between dualism, semi-dualism, non-dualism, and pure non-dualism. As usual, Arten and Pursah pull no punches when it comes to discussing the purely non-dualistic message of A Course in Miracles – where you get God and Jesus without the religion - and how there can only be one correct interpretation of it. Their spiritual message that there is no world and only God is real is hammered home even further; the perfect kick in the ass that the spiritual community, and especially the Course in Miracles community, needs to hear! And Gary is his usually humorous self, while very candidly sharing some more of his personal experiences, as well as forgiveness opportunities that he had to apply the metaphysics of A Course in Miracles to, as he knows very well that if one doesn’t apply it, then this super, immense teaching is ultimately useless. As Arten puts it, “It’s not enough to know about forgiveness or even understand it. And that’s rare enough. But once you do understand it, you have go get into the habit of doing it consistently.” And later on, “You’ll know for sure that you’ve forgiven something when it doesn’t bother you anymore.” And that is certainly the point of doing the Course; to get to a place where the nothing the world throws your way bothers you; to be happy and at peace regardless of what happens. Giddy up!
