Trusting Guidance – a conversation with Dr. Bob Rosenthal and Bruce Rawles

What do Mr. Magoo, Rumplestiltskin, reincarnation, chihuahuas, Dorian Gray, Area 51, billionaires, bat guano, Schindler’s List, bushwhacking, Altered States of Consciousness, nasty nothings and opera tickets have in common? They are all metaphors, subjects and specifics from a very fun and meandering conversation about A Course In Miracles that Dr. Bob Rosenthal and Bruce Rawles had while “trusting guidance” and letting inspiration lead the conversation for about an hour.

In this video, “Dr. Bob” a.k.a. Dr. Robert Rosenthal – author of “From Never-Mind to Ever-Mind and Bruce drew from a variety of favorite metaphors and helpful quotes from ACIM including:

“Nothing so blinding as perception of form.” – T-22.III.6:7

Your cues for inference are wrong…” – T-21.I.1:5

I need do nothing. – T-18.VII

“Changes are required in the minds of God’s teachers.” – M.9.1:1

Complete abstraction is the natural condition of the mind. – W-pI.161.2:1

The memory of God is shimmering across the wide horizons of our minds. – W-pII.In.9:5

Bob reminded that the guidance we get from Holy Spirit is truly helpful, unlike ego’s less-than-helpful, less-than-gentle misinterpretations … The gentleness we receive from HS is “not our gentleness” meaning that gentleness is not in ego’s vocabulary.

Along with Tamara Morgan – daughter of Judy Whitson, the founder of the Foundation for Inner Peace (FIP) which publishes A Course In MiraclesDr. Bob is co-president of FIP, as well as the author of From Plagues to Miracles (FPTM) – his prior book about ACIM –which explores the metaphysical metaphors and symbolism of the story of Exodus, available in both paperback and Kindle editions. The book page on his (new) Robert Rosenthal, M.D. website provides an overview of his books, novels and screenplays. Listen to numerous interviews with Dr. Bob here as well on Charlotte Spicer’s BlogTalkRadio channel series.
