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.

I am studying a course of Miracles and Gary has such a simple and fluid way of moving through the principles of A Course in Miracles and gently assisting in the understanding of the Course! His casual yet direct approach is most helpful! Thank you Gary!

From the introduction, by Jesus, "What I have come to teach now is that you can embody love, as I did. You can become Christ within this human life and learn to embody all that is good within you. I came to show you the beauty of your own soul and what is possible as a human. I came to show you that it is possible to be both human and divine, to be love incarnate. You are equally both. You walk with one foot in the world of form and another in the formless.

I'm new with regard to listening to Thrillers. I'm a huge reader but tend to stick with other genres. Anyway, this is a pretty fun story and I really got into it. And, I have to say, the author who is also the narrator... Amazing. What are the best narrations I've ever had on Audible. If you want to go for a fun ride, this is one!

More than anyone before him - more than Beethoven, Byron, even the preternatural Paganini - it was Franz Liszt who created one of the most enduring archetypes of the Romantic era: that of the artist "who walks with God and brings down fire from heaven in order to kindle the hearts of humankind." For every lover of music, Liszt remains someone you must understand, and this eight-lecture series is an ideal place to begin your acquaintance with both the man and his music.

In the summer of 1972, with a presidential crisis stirring in the United States and the cold war at a pivotal point, two men, the Soviet world chess champion Boris Spassky and his American challenger Bobby Fischer, met in the most notorious chess match of all time. Their showdown in Reykjavik, Iceland, held the world spellbound for two months with reports of psychological warfare, ultimatums, political intrigue, cliffhangers, and farce to rival a Marx Brothers film.

James Gleick's story begins at the turn of the 20th century, with the young H. G. Wells writing and rewriting the fantastic tale that became his first book, an international sensation: The Time Machine. A host of forces were converging to transmute the human understanding of time, some philosophical and some technological - the electric telegraph, the steam railroad, the discovery of buried civilizations, and the perfection of clocks.

this is really the history of time. is it even real, and, if so, what is it?
from cutting-edge physics to the more spiritual and so forth...
gets pretty detailed at some points with the science stuff but he quickly gets out of it when it gets a little too deep and back to demonstrating ideas with a pop culture twist and some fun!
good.

William Sidis, 1897-1944, was the world's greatest child prodigy. His IQ was an estiamted 50 to 100 points higher than Einstein's, the highest ever recorded or estimated. His father, a pioneer in the field of abnormal psychology, believed that he and his wife could create a genius in the cradle. They hung alphabet blocks over the baby's crib-and within six months little Billy was speaking. At 18 months he was reading The New York Times; at three, Homer in the original Greek. At six he spoke at least seven languages.
