Readers of A Course in Miracles often can’t see the forest for the words. Deep within the over 1200 pages of the Course, there lies a clear, consistent fundamental philosophy. In It's All Mind, Edwin Navarro presents that philosophy in simple, unambiguous language, illuminating the true meaning of the Course. This book can be an invaluable companion for old and new readers alike.
Since the dawn of man, stories of guilt have formed the fabric of our history. From wars and conflicts to crime and punishment, guilt has driven our actions. We want to see guilt punished, but fear we may need to be punished as well. Everyone living in this world experiences guilt, whether at a deeply personal level or perceived in others. Guilt feels heavy and dark, like a great weight holding us down, and we look for ways to keep it hidden. Ultimately, hidden or not, the guilt remains and impacts our relationships and the decisions we make in life.
More than a theoretical book, it’s also a practical guide showing how you can use forgiveness every day to lift your personal burden of guilt and truly change your life. Through a simple step-by-step process, you will be able to apply the practice of forgiveness to the guilt you experience. With repeated application, a real transformation is possible, leading you out of the conflicts in your life to the end of guilt.
This new book by the author of It's All Mind explores a new way of looking at guilt, the way of A Course in Miracles. Here guilt is examined from the idea of separation and the ego that wants to maintain that separation. Once seen this way, the Course provides us with the antidote to guilt, the idea of forgiveness, a brand of forgiveness unlike any taught by religions or psychologists. When forgiveness is applied to the guilt in your life, the dark and heavy burden will be lifted, and the Love and Peace of our True Home can be revealed.
“The End of Guilt is a very well-written, thorough treatment of one of the most important concepts in A Course in Miracles. The end of guilt opens the doors of Heaven.” - Jon Mundy

Roland Jarrell thinks he knows where his life is headed. Through a series of decisions that are all his own, he finds his simple vision of the world sharply contrasting with reality. A child of the Baby Boom, he comes of age in the ‘60s and ‘70s, becoming immersed in the technological revolution of the time. His financial and career success leads to conflicts at home, until eventually his vision comes crashing down.
From the author of It’s All Mind: The Simplified Philosophy of A Course in Miracles comes a new novel that applies this philosophy to real-world human experience.
“To err is human; to forgive, divine.” Though it may be divine, forgiveness is seldom easy. When we look out into the world, our first reaction is often anger and resentment toward those we believe are guilty. Even when given time to understand the facts better, it seems almost impossible to release all this anger and resentment. Wouldn’t we be letting the guilty get away with something?
We also feel our own guilt for the things we have done, whether we intended to or not. We resist forgiving ourselves, believing there really is something wrong with us. We can’t just act badly and not face the consequences. How can we ever forgive ourselves for all the things we’ve done?
