Comparison to A Course In Miracles

There are many similar themes between I Am Therefore I Am and ACIM. This was not done on purpose. I did not go through ACIM and find sections that I wanted to reproduce in my book. However, ACIM has been one of the most important aids on my journey. For me, it is as if God and Jesus are speaking directly to me as I read those words, so I strongly resonate with it and I have used it frequently to remind me who I am. Many times it has cast a light in the darkness when I have fallen back in to the illusion. I have never read ACIM cover to cover, but rather I have randomly turned to a page, always finding the words that I need to hear in that moment. As I originally recorded the revelations in my journal, grouped them, put them into book form, etc., I was amazed and grateful for the number of times that I had already written something that I was just now discovering in ACIM. The point I want to make here is that these revelations, whether they be in ACIM, my book, or in your consciousness, come from the same Source, from the One which we are inseparable from. So for me to have these revelations and then to find them in ACIM at a later date is no surprise. And it should be no surprise when you have the same experience. Think about all of the times that you have read something in a spiritual book and you already had that recognition or knowing previously. There is only One of us generating this. Besides resonating with ACIM, I think one of the purposes for my book is that it attracts a wider audience than those who can make it through ACIM. That is a small group which I applaud, as I can only make it through several pages at a time. But that is how it is meant for me. Hopefully, my writings give you a flavor of the teachings in ACIM but at a little easier pace and comprehension level. I think my writings are complex, but I think that ACIM is super complex. God is One. That is pure simplicity, but we live in a paradox, a world of appearances, and these appearances can seem complex as we make our way back to the Oneness. I know my book is somewhat heady, but this is the way it came out, the way that WE intended. Hopefully, my personal journey in the book eases some of this complexity.
