Yes I read the links and while it does state that he had CIA links that does not automatically mean that either the woman who wrote (or channeled it) did or that the book has anything to do with them.
Sloppy logic to say it does.

And I gave my opinion, I also kept your thread from being closed as there was no conspiracy angle until I brought one to the fold.
I read a course in miricles before I even came across the CIA connections. I personally felt there was something amiss at the time of reading it. It seems to teach people to dissasociate and disconect. Anyone I have come across that took the book for gospel traded in thier egos for a non grounded self centred detatched spiritual ego. Me, I would much rather find the middle ground and actively help people instead of being in a spiritual cocoon.

hmm, very interesting. I do try to step around the books and pages that come on strong. I generally try to protect my original thoughts and safe guard my own perceptions, but would "God is within you" apply? I can't quote directly but I do believe that this was one of Jesus teachings, that god is within you and that you must look inside yourself to find his light. Something like that, also Buddha. finding love and life in everything, and deattaching from the "real world".
20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
