An Advanced Teacher of God
First Edition. 132 pages.
Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.
This book contains edited transcripts from two Seminars, “And God Thinks Otherwise,” and “A Light of Laughing Flowers”: An Advanced Teacher of God.
“And God Thinks Otherwise” focuses on the ego’s anger that God not only “thinks otherwise” about it and its thought system, but does not even know about it. Our Creator’s recognition of our individual existence was the “special favor” we asked of Him, and when it was not granted—how could Perfection know of imperfection?—we made our own God Who did recognize us. This replacement for the true Creator interacts with us and the world, which bears witness to the seeming reality of the ego’s substitutes for God and His Son. A Course in Miracles helps us see our mistake in preferring separation to oneness, which enables us finally to choose humility over arrogance, innocence over sin.
“A Light of Laughing Flowers”: An Advanced Teacher of God, inspired by Shelley’s elegy “Adonais,” describes an advanced teacher of God as “a light of laughing flowers.” This evocative phrase reflects how those well along the spiritual path reflect the light of innocence that is within everyone’s mind (not body). It calls forth this light in all they meet, greeting them with the gentle laughter that reminds the mind that its dream of desolation has no effect upon reality, and therefore need not be met with seriousness. Thus does the gentle truth correct the mind’s illusions, freeing Heaven’s light to shine forth to bless the world as it blesses ourselves.
The edited transcripts are not verbatim to the edited audio recordings of the same titles.Original Release Date: 11/2023
