Emerson's ideas are alive and well and very much with us today. Consider that Emerson, now an establishment figure, was a rebel in his time. He could find no relevance in established religion. But, unlike others, he set out to reform it. Many of his ideas now seem obvious and as American as apple pie.

1. go to houston one day and attend a sunday service
2. sit and chat with joel and shake his hand and just talk about anything that we both come up with, if only for several minutes but just to look into his eyes and experience the peace and understanding he has
3. be able to share my opinions and blessings with people and have the touch he has to reach others and share the energy of the holy spirit

thank you to all that are part of the ministry of joel olsteen and his family and friends

What if you could accelerate your spiritual progress so greatly that you would never have to "come back" to learn more lessons? Is it possible that a form of "advanced forgiveness", if fully understood and achieved, could bring you perfect peace? According to Gary Renard, all the instructions to transcend human suffering and dissolve the illusions of this world are contained in A Course in Miracles.
