Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.
This May 2012 workshop uses Plato’s discussion of beauty as the springboard for considering the Course’s important distinction between form and content, body and mind. An important focus of the workshop is the metaphor of ascending from the darkness of illusion to the light of truth, a primary theme running through all of Plato, as it does in A Course in Miracles. Finally, it emphasizes how we need to see everyone as the same, sharing the common purpose of remembering our absolute beauty as God’s Son. This then becomes the basis for perceiving beauty all around us, despite the data our physical senses bring to us.
The real world is attained simply by the complete forgiveness of the old, the world you see without forgiveness. The great Transformer of perception will undertake with you the careful searching of the mind that made this world, and uncover to you the seeming reasons for your making it. In the light of the real reason that He brings, as you follow Him, He will show you that there is no reason here at all. Each spot His reason touches grows alive with beauty, and what seemed ugly in the darkness of your lack of reason is suddenly released to loveliness. Not even what the Son of God made in insanity could be without a hidden spark of beauty that gentleness could release.
