It accomplishes the impossible in this respect, and it has proven to be helpful both as an introduction for newcomers to the Course, as well as a refresher for long time students, not to mention it has helped many people who’ve become stuck in their work with the Course through an avalanche of commentaries which distort the Course, and introduce contradictions into its crystalline clarity by mixing in other teachings.
If the Course is for you, this may be your best introduction. It also serves the purpose of an overview, so that you don’t get lost in the trees, but can see the forest as you start working with the Course, which can pf a bit overwhelming at first, just because of its sheer size. Jan 25, Wendy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jul 30, Heather rated it it was ok. If this book was supposed to bring me peace- it didn’t.
I do agree that we should not identify with the ego, but we should try to lovingly watch it as our ggary self and say ‘even though I am not this illusion I love this illusion’, thus gently detaching through acceptance, but still seeing the beauty of our journey. I have contacted my spirit guide and read many books about ascended masters.
The Disappearance of the Universe
I felt that the guides, Arten and Pursah, spoke too harshly for me. They seemed to be pushing people to If this book was supposed to bring me peace- it didn’t. They seemed to be pushing people too fast in “going straight to heaven now” instead of “following at your own speed and enjoying the ride”.
I side with Ekhart Tolle’s method instead, and recommend that. But, many blessings to those who are transformed by this way of teaching. View all 4 comments. May 27, July Wolfe uinverse it it was amazing Shelves: I’m so grateful that someone recommended this book to me five years ago.
It’s a great explanation of the basics of “A Course in Miracles,” a self-study course on the reliquishment of a thought-system based on fear, and the acceptance of a thought-system based on love. I had picked up the Course several times in my life but couldn’t get into it.
Half way through garu I went out and bought the Course and have been studying it since.

Gary Renard breaks down the language and the concept I’m so grateful that someone recommended this book to me five years ago. Gary Renard breaks down the language and the concepts inherent to the Course and makes them understandable and applicable.
I’ve probably read this book more times than I have any other, and I get something new out of it every time. I’ve recommended it to spiritual-minded friends and have even bought copies for friends. Feb 21, Modupe Field rated it it was amazing Shelves: Wow wow wow, It is amazing, I have never read any spiritual book like this before.
It wasn’t until this book that I heard of a course in miracles. I have read alot of spirituality books and buddhist version of enlightment and all sorts but nothing rang more true for me than this book.
If anyone has no prior knowledge of a course in miracles, this is probably the best place to start. As I said before, I have never heard of ACIM, I have heard sayings that “you are a part of God and he is a part of you” or that “this world is a dream”. I dont think I fully understood what that meant until I read this book.
When I first read the book, I kept it aside for a few weeks because this book and its theories and concepts will literally change the way you think. When I felt ready, I picked the book back up and then miraculously read it til the end and even before the end of the book I ordered the Course in Miracles text as I wanted to start my path to enlightment and return back home to God.
You cannot mix your traditional views of the church with this book, it just would not work. This course is unique in its own way, now I finally feel ready to experience the essence of God with the help of the Holy spirit and finally break down the walls of illusion.
If it helps you can check Hinduism on Bramham and Self-realisation. It is talkin about the same thing just in different and more practical ways Apr 04, Saiisha rated it it was ok Shelves: I picked up this book as it happens so often based on the cool title. And it didn’t hurt that the book has star reviews on GoodReads. So it was a huge disappointment to me that I couldn’t relate to the book – I couldn’t relate to the tone of the dialogues between the author and the ascended masters who appear to him on his living room couch, I couldn’t get past the amateur language, and I couldn’t bear t I picked up this book as it happens so often based on the cool title.
So it was a huge disappointment to me that I couldn’t relate to the book – I couldn’t relate to the tone of the dialogues between the author and the ascended masters who appear to him on his living room couch, I couldn’t get past the amateur language, and I couldn’t bear the immaturity of some of the conversations. This book could be an entry point for a lot of readers for the content it provides in a different way, but it just wasn’t for me.
May 27, J. It’s difficult for me to truly rate this book. I would actually had given it a 4—maybe even 5 star rating had the author claimed it was a work of fiction, but he does not. It was suppose to have really occurred. Then, it gets deeper, and more ridiculous.
This book has got to be one of the biggest scams or cult leading ideas out there. No pun intended, for those hooked on this, I’m just an illusion anywaybut I just could not buy into this nonsense, as peaceful and beautiful as it reads. It will lead you astray from the human race, and isolate you from reality.
I love the philosophy of Buddhism, but the Disappearance of the Universe, I feel, is NOTHING like the beauty of Buddhism, neither is A Course In Miracles The book the ascended masters always refer toit’s just another scam intended to make the author rich by inserting his own viewpoints on religion, faith, philosophy, and the way of the world.
What threw me off even more were the mistakes in physics the “Masters” who are suppose to know everything, infalibilytalked about, even worse was the section that talked about Mars, and one of the Ascended Masters commenting: This book strolls far from the Truth, I believe, and will just lead one further astray. May 25, Susan Sampson rated it it was amazing.
The Disappearance of the Universe by Gary R. Renard
It may be reflect on the Course in Miracles, but it is more approachable. The Course’s Biblical wording and cadence put me off.
However, Disappearance was a grounded, visceral exploration of the whys and hows of a spiritual journey through life. Gary’s grounded irreverence mirrored my own and spirit’s understanding of that very human renaed made this book an astounding read. Thirty years ago, I read the Ramtha material, and it resonated. Other books since that time have not spoken to me to that depth or degree except for Disappearance of the Universe.
I would made this mandatory reading for every human being.
Aug 10, Pete Brigham rated it it was amazing. Gary Renard came to the New Thought spirituality world with a unique background. Despite this, or maybe because of it, Gary started meditating. Whether Artem and Pursah actually existed, or ever appeared to Gary, is an irrelevant question. So if we are all dream figures, then why not believe in dream figures who claim to have been friends of Jesus?
I quibble with the extended treatment given to the Biblical lives of these two former disciples of Jesus in DU or J, as he is called in the book. The Course might say, “who cares who they were, or who we were, since there is only ONE of us? Yet these are not real faults. With such a clean and powerful synopsis of the Course, the book can only be called a masterpiece, and its straightforward language makes it accessible to every Course student.
Yes, it is peppered with Gary-isms: But DU also provides a spectacular and thorough explanation of the Course to the uninitiated, complete with dozens of helpful quotes from the Course.
There can be no doubt that DU will continue to gain in recognition as one of the greatest spiritual works of our age, or any other. The central Course position of forgiveness is hammered home—not the false forgiveness of our modern world, but a true forgiveness born of joining, a forgiveness that sees no sin because it sees Oneness and shared interests everywhere.
It discusses the ego, which is only another word for our mistaken sense of individuality.
