A Tale of Truth has just been published. Based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles, the book is for children aged 7 to 12 years of age. In A Tale of Truth the teachings of this great spiritual work are simplified and made accessible to children in a light-hearted manner.
Adam is a nine-year-old who comes across a wise old man called Joshua, as he wanders down a country lane. Joshua teaches Adam about the Separation, according to A Course in Miracles, and about the oneness of all people with each other and with God. Adam asks questions about conflict, the deeds that some people carry out and about the wars and strife that he sees on television. Joshua explains that the ego created a world of chaos and conflict by sending out these thoughts into the world through projection. He also talks about the need to protect Mother Earth and about true prayer, and he discusses a few of the Workbook Lessons of A Course in Miracles with Adam. In addition, Joshua explains how forgiveness helps us awaken from the dream of separation and return to Heaven.
I decided to write the book because I think the more spiritual books children are given to read, the better. We live in a very materialistic age, where consumerism seems to have become a key motivating force. I believe children need to remember their spiritual origins and be taught about the message of love, oneness, non-judgement and forgiveness that is the essence of A Course in Miracles.
