It Doesn’t Mean Anything

Sometime ago I bought the book A Course in Miracles. A friend of mine had told me about it and upon first picking it up, it did not take, but now it is growing on me.

In addition to the course itself, there is also a workbook. Each exercise is to be taken alone for the day. There is one for every day of the year. The first one is to identify everything in sight with “it doesn’t mean anything.” 

I have applied it to objects in rooms empty of people and pets. If either our dog, cat or my spouse is in the room, I will have trouble getting out the words. And yet, there are to be no favorites.

      I agree. Easy is not a word that comes to mind.

    I haven’t read that one yet, but I love Dr. Dyer…good tools. 🙂

      What else have you read of Dr. Dyer?

        I have just finished reading/studying “Your Sacred Self”..well, if you ever really “finish” with one of his books. I am still putting it into practice. I really enjoyed “Manifest Your Destiny” also. He is such an inspirational teacher. Oh, and “A Spiritual Solution to Every Problem” was really good too!

        Is there any connection between Dr.Dyer and A Course on Miracles? I downloaded a sample of “Your Sacred Self.”

        He mentions A Course in Miracles quite often in his books and seminars. I must have been mistaken in thinking it was his work…it always makes me think of Dyer.

    Are you saying Susan, Duke and Charlie are distractions ?
