Celebrating the Semicentennial of the
Scribing of A Course in Miracles
The Foundation continues our Fiftieth Celebration of the scribing of A Course in Miracles with yet another offering. It is exciting to announce the eBook of Dr. Helen Schucman's poetry, The Gifts of God. As part of our celebration, starting now, The The Gifts of God ebook is available from Amazon for a special one-month-only price of 99 cents.
A special thank you to Brad Oliphant, the photographer who provided
the Angel image for the cover of the eBook.
During the transmission of the Course and continuing after its completion, Helen wrote the poems in this volume. Readers familiar with the Course will be aware of the stylistic similarities between the two, as well as their shared spiritual content. Despite these similarities, Helen felt that there was a difference between them. She considered herself the “scribe” of the Course but the “inspired author” of the poems.
Listen to Alzena, the youngest student of A Course in Miracles, reading the poem, "Heaven's Gift." Alzena, who has always felt deeply connected to Helen began her serious study of the Course at the age of eight and is now fifteen.
Alzena with A Course in Miracles (age 8)
No one can rob infinity. For when
Something is taken, angels join their wings
And close the space so rapidly it seems
To be illusion; unoccurred, undone.
No one can take away from everything.
Its very wholeness is a guarantee
It is complete forever. There can be
No loss left unrestored before it comes.
No one can lessen love. It is itself
The Great Restorer. It can but return
All that is taken to itself. It knows
No loss, no limit and no lessening.
Heaven can only give. This is the sign
That losing is impossible. It seemed
That it was gone. Yet angels quickly came
And promised they would bring it back to you.
