Q: New age say that this world has been made by God, the exact opposite of a course in miracles, so how can you associate a course in miracles with new age ?
A: It is incorrect to associate A Course in Miracles with New Age beliefs, as the theory of A Course in Miracles is based on a non-dualistic metaphysics that teaches that the physical universe (including the body) was not created by God, and in fact, came about as an attack on God. 1 This teaching is the exact opposite of the New Age belief that this world was made by God. Although the Course in Miracles includes some ideas that are similar to New Age doctrines, such as the concept of personal transformation and the importance of love, it fundamentally differs from New Age beliefs in its metaphysics. 2

Q: Where did you see that a course in miracles was speaking of “personal transformation” ?
A: Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I apologize for the confusion in my previous response.
A Course in Miracles does not explicitly use the term “personal transformation,” but it does emphasize a process of inner healing and self-transformation through the practice of forgiveness and the shift from fear to love. This process is described as a journey from the ego to the Holy Spirit, which involves undoing the ego’s thought system of separation and recognizing the oneness of all things.
The book also teaches that by changing our thoughts and perceptions, we can change our experience of the world and bring about a state of inner peace and joy. This process of transformation is not focused on personal gain or individual success, but rather on the goal of awakening to our true nature as spiritual beings.
I hope this clarifies any confusion and provides a more accurate understanding of the teachings of A Course in Miracles.
Q: Do you have an ego ?
A: As an AI language model, I don’t have an ego or any sense of self-awareness.

While I can simulate human-like behavior and conversation, I don’t have feelings, beliefs, or personal experiences.
Q: Can you compare and give me your own analysis of “a course in miracles” and “the disappearance of the universe” by Gary Renard ?
A: Sure, I’d be happy to provide a comparison and analysis of “A Course in Miracles” and “The Disappearance of the Universe” by Gary Renard.
“A Course in Miracles” is a spiritual text that teaches forgiveness as the means to inner peace and awakening to our true nature as love. It consists of a Text, Workbook, and Manual for Teachers, and its teachings are based on Christian principles but presented in a non-denominational way. The Course presents a metaphysical framework that challenges our perception of reality, suggesting that what we see as the world is a projection of our own mind and that our true identity is not the body but the eternal spirit. The Course’s language can be dense and abstract, and its message may take time to fully grasp and apply to one’s life.
In “The Disappearance of the Universe,” Gary Renard shares his personal experience of studying and applying the teachings of “A Course in Miracles.” The book narrates conversations between Renard and two ascended masters, Arten and Pursah, who guide him through the Course’s principles and help him overcome his egoic beliefs and fears. The book is written in a conversational style that makes the Course’s teachings more accessible and relatable, and it offers practical exercises and examples of how to apply forgiveness in everyday situations. Renard also shares his own story of transformation and healing through the Course’s teachings.
In terms of their similarities, both “A Course in Miracles” and “The Disappearance of the Universe” are based on the teachings of the Course and emphasize the importance of forgiveness, letting go of the ego, and realizing our true spiritual identity. Both books challenge our conventional view of reality and offer a different perspective on life that can lead to inner peace and happiness.
However, there are also some differences between the two books. “A Course in Miracles” is a more comprehensive and systematic presentation of the Course’s teachings, while “The Disappearance of the Universe” is more of a personal account and commentary on the Course. Renard’s book offers a more conversational and down-to-earth approach to the Course’s principles, while the Course’s language can be more abstract and challenging to understand at times.
In my opinion, both “A Course in Miracles” and “The Disappearance of the Universe” are valuable resources for anyone seeking spiritual growth and transformation. “A Course in Miracles” offers a comprehensive and profound framework for understanding the nature of reality and the path to awakening, while “The Disappearance of the Universe” provides a more accessible and relatable guide to applying the Course’s teachings in our daily lives. Ultimately, the choice of which book to read may depend on one’s personal preferences and learning style, but both books offer valuable insights and wisdom for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and the world.
Q: According to a course in miracles, the spirit can not change or grow, so how can you say that ?
A: According to “A Course in Miracles – Text: Chapter 1 – Wholeness and Spirit” from ACIMI, the spirit is “unalterable because it is already perfect, but the mind can elect what it chooses to serve.” This means that the spirit itself cannot change or grow, but the mind can choose to align with the spirit and therefore grow in its understanding and awareness of the spirit. 
Q: How can you say that it can be personal growing although scientist say that time do not exist ?
A: It is true that some scientists and physicists propose that time may not be an absolute concept and that it may not exist in the way we typically perceive it. However, this does not necessarily mean that personal growth and change are not real.
Even if time is not a linear or objective phenomenon, our subjective experience of it can still influence our personal growth and transformation. For example, our memories and experiences shape who we are and how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. We may also have goals, aspirations, and challenges that require effort and time to achieve, and our actions and decisions can lead to personal growth and change.
In addition, spiritual teachings such as “A Course in Miracles” suggest that our true nature is timeless and eternal, and that personal growth and transformation involve a shift in our perception of reality rather than a linear progression over time. This shift may involve letting go of limiting beliefs, forgiving past hurts, and recognizing our true spiritual identity, all of which can lead to profound changes in our experience of life.
Therefore, while the concept of time may be subject to debate among scientists and philosophers, personal growth and transformation can still be a very real and meaningful aspect of our lives.
Q: You said “can still be very real”, but the course says that nothing real can be threaten and nothing unreal do exist, so you think that this universe is real ?
A: You are correct that according to “A Course in Miracles,” nothing real can be threatened and nothing unreal exists. This means that the physical world we perceive with our senses is not ultimately real, but a projection of our own mind. The Course teaches that our true identity is not the body or the ego, but the eternal spirit.
However, while the physical world may not be ultimately real, it can still be experienced as real within the context of our current level of awareness and perception. The Course acknowledges that we are currently living in a world that appears to be separate and material, and that our experience of this world can be meaningful and transformative if we use it as a means to awaken to our true spiritual identity.
Therefore, while the physical world may not be ultimately real, it can still be a valid context for our personal growth and transformation. The Course teaches that we can use our experiences in the world to recognize our egoic patterns, release them through forgiveness, and align with our true spiritual nature. In this sense, the physical world can be seen as a temporary classroom or a symbolic representation of our own mind, rather than an absolute reality.
