Dear Friend and Listener:

In this week’s edition of The Miracle Hour, I turn to one of my favorite passages in A Course in Miracles — chapter 22, part IV of the text, titled The Branching of the Road. Here is a quote from the opening of that section:

choose-wisely-cat

The whole purpose of coming this far was to decide which branch you will take now. The way you came no longer matters. It can no longer serve. No one who reaches this far can make the wrong decision, although he can delay. And there is no part of the journey that seems more hopeless and futile than standing where the road branches, and not deciding on which way to go.

I discuss the influence this beautiful writing has had on me, as well as its relationship to the vocation of healing, especially as a collective process. I also consider the question of gender bias in the ACIM text as a whole, and how in part my various callings may be a way of redressing that balance.

Finally, I share some of my poetry from a book I named 444, so called because it was inspired by this ACIM passage, which was originally on page 444.

As usual, this 59-minute broadcast, created for the Pacifica Radio Network, is accompanied by music from Vision Quest. You may listen to all past episodes here.

Lovingly,
eric
