Ask the Author: Question & Response
I am a student of “A Course In Miracles.” Everything that I have read of your material is similar to this course. Just wondering if you might be a student. If not, what have you been studying?

I love A Course In Miracles. When it comes to spiritual books, it is my first love, if you will. I have been a student of the “Course” since 1991. I still have it in my living room and was reading it last night.
Whenever you are with a brother, you are learning what you are because you are teaching what you are. He will respond either with pain or with joy, depending on which teacher you are following. He will be imprisoned or released according to your decision, and so will you. Never forget your responsibility to him, because it is your responsibility to yourself. Give him his place in the Kingdom and you will have yours.3

I also highly recommend the spiritual teachings of Orin and DaBen, channeled through Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer (www.orindaben.com). The first book you may choose to read is Living with Joy, Keys to Personal Power & Spiritual Transformation.
An older book, I highly recommend is Dialog on Awakening, Communion with a Loving Brother by Tom Carpenter.
Other authors I have enjoyed and learned from are Kahlil Gibran, Wayne Dyer, Dan Millman, Robert A. Monroe (for OBEs, Out-of-Body Experiences), Michael Newton, PhD (for in between life therapy), Pat Rodegast (Emmanuel books), Marianne Williamson and Esther Hicks.
