“A Course In Miracles” is a book that has been around since 1976. The origins of these writings came from a couple of college professors in New York USA. I had heard about this book by various people who had investigated it. Due to a recent audible book I had been listening to suggested that I investigate A Course In Miracles as well. What I am about to share with you in this entry actually occurred and I am still rather overwhelmed to say the least.

As I began my journey in “A Course In Miracles” I was driving back from a hospice visit in Bay Town, TX. I was on interstate ten west bound. The audible book reader was discussing the ego and how our egos project our thought processes on to others. All of a sudden I passed a semi-truck pulling a trailer. Written on the trailer was a very large logo. The logo spelled the word, “EGO.” Immediately my thoughts entertained the idea that my ego had become quite large. After passing this vehicle a much smaller truck passed me in an adjacent lane. This vehicle represented a company advertising internet capabilities. Written on this smaller truck was the following, “Watch Something New.”

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and what was being expressed in my thoughts. All of a sudden the very large EGO I had passed by and the seemingly new direction of what caught up with me to “Watch Something New” is giving rise to the possibilities awaiting me in A Course In Miracles. 

What I have shared thus far took place as I was driving back to my hospice branch office. Once there, I decided to write down the experience. After writing it down, I took a chance to share the experience by reading it to one of my hospice colleagues to discover her reactions. She indicated how much she enjoyed what I shared. Another colleague arrived at the office and I asked my first colleague  if she thought it would be okay for me to share my written experience with the colleague that had just arrived. She said, “yes.” So I did. Both of my hospice colleagues are interested in investigating A Course In Miracles.

The story doesn’t stop there. After leaving the hospice office I continued to ponder the two messages emphasized on the two trucks I encountered on the interstate highway. While driving toward my apartment a pickup truck traveling in my same direction passed me. It was hard to ignore because it was painted a bright yellow. However, what was being advertised on this truck related to a pest control business. In very large letters on the back of the truck was “ASAP!”

What I gathered from the other two truck messages communicated to me that letting go of my large EGO by Watching Something New was very important and I needed to do this As Soon As Possible! Hold on! It doesn’t stop there. A fourth truck figures into this scenario. As I was stopped at a traffic light while on my way to my apartment, a truck a head of me was associated with a seafood company. The seafood that it specialized in was Oysters. Beneath the word Oysters were two words. When I read these two words in context with what I had already experienced with the other three truck messages convinced me that this was not by accident or coincidence. Written beneath the word Oysters was, “Wild” and “Sustainable.”

As I pondered these four truck messages, all of a sudden the parable of “the pearl of great price” surfaced in my thoughts. After all, oysters do create pearls. Whatever it is I will be receiving from my journey with A Course In Miracles, I am convinced it will be wild and sustainable. In contemplating what I have shared in this entry, it just might bring about enough curiosity in the reader to possibly do your own investigating.
