  • "This is my very favourite audio boo..."

    Overall

    I just LOVE this book! I listen to it pretty much every day and it fills me with wisdom and release.



    I love it when the author reads their own book and in this case Jon Mundy has the loveliest most soothing wonderful gorgeous voice.



    This is such a joy, this book/recording always gives me the answer that I need in any given moment. I love how Jon so beautifully weaves real life stories of his own and others experiences in awakening as well as the great examples of the enlightened masters and spiritual teachers of our time and of history.



    For me this just has it all!



    If you want to know the truth, it you want to get relief from the nagging monkey mind and return to the freedom and peace that you already are - you will love this audio book.



    Thank you for a magnificent piece of work. I'm on my fourth round of listening!

    In 1976, a mysterious "Inner Voice" spoke to Helen Schucman, dictating what would come to be known as A Course in Miracles - a spiritual classic that would go on to sell over two million copies and influence countless people worldwide. Those who study this 1,333-page course can struggle for years to progress through its resonant but often difficult-to-comprehend truths.

  • "The most powerful voice of truth"

    Overall

    This audio version of A Course in Miracles is so powerful that I can only listen to it a bit a time. The teachings and principles are so deep that it drops down into my awareness and learning and resonnates the sound of truth.



    Who could have the depth of maturity and mastery of understanding of the material and make such a magnificent job of it but for Jim Stewart? He reads the book with such a sense of embodied knowledge. It makes me feel fully connected to the work.



    A Course in Miracles is a large volume of text to read and to digest and for me p be able to listen to it be shared in such a calm and peaceful way is a real gift.



    I recommend this audio book to anyone interested in A Course in Miracles even if you have the book I suggest it goes into different channels of learning in the listening format.



    Wonderful piece of work - thank you.

    A Course in Miracles, also known as "the Course" or ACIM, was scribed by Dr. Helen Schucman. It is a self-study course that aims to assist listeners, readers, and students in achieving spiritual transformation. Book 1: Text is largely theoretical, and sets forth the concepts on which the Course's thought system is based. Its ideas contain the foundation for the lessons in Book 2, the Workbook for Students.

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

With the combination of playful irreverence and penetrating insight that made him a legend in Western philosophy, Alan Watts investigates the surprisingly liberating concept of "the universe as play" found at the heart of Hinduism, Zen, and other wisdom traditions.

    It is a story like no other: an epic of endurance against destruction, of creativity in oppression, joy amidst grief, the affirmation of life against the steepest of odds. It spans the millennia and the continents - from India to Andalusia and from the bazaars of Cairo to the streets of Oxford. It takes you to unimagined places: to a Jewish kingdom in the mountains of southern Arabia; a Syrian synagogue glowing with radiant wall paintings; the palm groves of the Jewish dead in the Roman catacombs.

    In the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four satipatthanas) are "the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disappearance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for acquiring the true method, for the realization of Nibbana." Within the quintessential discourse called the Satipatthana Sutta, we find the Buddha's seminal teachings about the practice of meditation.

    I have found poetry to be a wonderfully spiritual way for me to commune with God, and it matters not whether I am writing the poems, or simply reading them; a quiet serenity comes over me during those times that is a great comfort to my soul. I began my writings more than 30 years ago during a time in my life when I was unable to sleep well at night because of a painful back. As a consequence, throughout the night, I would have to get up to apply a heating pad to get relief.

    In Eavesdropping on God, the listener has the privilege of "listening" in on the conversations, questions, and struggles that one man faces, which are not unfamiliar to many Christians. Book Four, Glimpses of Hope, covers how hope in God not only sustains my life, but also blesses me beyond measure. We sometimes face trials and tribulations that seem hopeless, but as you journey through this devotional, you'll come to see that our hope in God is never baseless or begrudging.

No one saw them stow away on the yacht. Nor did anyone see them climb overboard and into a life raft in the middle of the night. Armed with only the meager supplies in their pockets, they learn to fish and make a shelter and even hunt. Only twelve-year-old Karen knows Jesus as her Savior.
