Pop music’s reigning power couple, Beyonce and Jay Z, have been referencing a quote from A Course in Miracles in their songs and tweets. It began back in September of last year when Jay Z celebrated the one millionth subscriber to his new streaming music service in a tweet that began, “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.” Next came a mention of the quote in Bey’s song (from her new album, Lemonade), “All Night,” as the eleventh verse signals a shift in her album’s narrative to close on a note of forgiveness and reconciliation. Finally, earlier this year, Jay Z brought the reference back in his track, “Drug Dealers Anonymous,” which includes the lines, “I’m a course of miracles with this sh*t. Nothing real can be threatened, nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”
Marianne Williamson shared her wisdom in a baccalaureate speech in May to the graduates of the University of Southern California. Just as an acorn is programmed to grow into an oak tree, she argued that we are all programmed to become the best versions of ourselves. But we are also programmed, she said, to work toward the greatest good for society — not only for ourselves. “The universe wants you to actualize,” Williamson told the packed auditorium. “The universe does have your back and wants you to become your most glorious expression. But sometimes in becoming your most glorious expression, you will be confronted with choices.” She went on to urge graduates to choose love over profit, humility over pride and gratitude over entitlement.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Tim O’Toole, new assistant men’s basketball coach at the University of California, Berkeley, “begins most days, pen in hand, jotting down thoughts in a well-worn notebook. His inspiration comes from the pages of A Course in Miracles, a self-study curriculum aimed at centering its practitioners. The morning exercise helps remind O’Toole that miracles aren’t the awe-inspiring phenomena seen in movies. ‘The reality is, miracles occur every day in your life,’said O’Toole, 52. ‘It’s just whether or not you notice them. You get these kids, and they’re 18,’ O’Toole said. ‘They all have high aspirations. I use these books to share a meaning or parable that’ll help ease the burden of pushing to a higher point.’”
Marianne Williamson’s newest book will be published on June 13th. In this powerful volume, Marianne explains that our desire to avoid pain is actually detrimental to our lives, disconnecting us from our deepest emotions and preventing true healing and spiritual transcendence. Healing and transcendence, however can only come when we finally face our pain and wrestle with what it has to teach us. Written with warm compassion and profound wisdom, Tears to Triumph offers us a powerful way forward through the pain, to a deeper awareness of our feelings, our lives, and our true selves. The book will be autographed by Marianne on a limited-edition bookplate.
