From The Lighthouse: An Anthology

Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.

(Excerpted from the Introduction) In 1990, the Foundation for A Course in Miracles began its official newsletter, The Lighthouse. It evolved into a quarterly periodical announcing classes and publications, and featured articles written by us (Kenneth and Gloria). We have thought for some time now, echoed in the numerous requests of others, to have these articles available as a collection, and thus are pleased to announce this compendium of writings entitled From The Lighthouse. The articles cover a wide range of topics, as we considered both the world of A Course in Miracles as well as the world at large through the lens of the Course’s teachings on forgiveness. When taken together, as they are in this compendium, these writings provide a window into how we at the Foundation have seen A Course in Miracles as a spiritual path, as well as our own development as a center dedicated to preserving and teaching its principles.

Ending Our Resistance to Love [EBP]

Ending Our Resistance to Love
Dr. Kenneth Wapnick


Dr. Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D.

Although the term resistance appears infrequently in A Course in Miracles, it is nonetheless a key concept in students’ learning the mind-changing lessons of forgiveness that are the Course’s central teaching. Indeed, it is the only concept that can satisfactorily explain a phenomenon experienced by most students at some point in their work with the Course. This is the paradox of sincerely attempting to learn and live its principles under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, while experiencing the ongoing frustration of not doing just that.

This paradox is the topic explored in this book, which consists of an edited transcription of a talk given to a group of students by Kenneth Wapnick, supplemented with two articles, co-authored with his wife Gloria, that appeared in the Foundation’s newsletter, “The Lighthouse.” The focus is on the many forms of resistance, and their basis in the fear of love. Freud’s valuable insights are discussed, along with Jesus’ role in helping us look without judgment at our investment in maintaining the ego’s thought system—the miracle that resolves the paradox.

“We are ready to look more closely at the ego’s thought system because together we have the lamp that will dispel it.”
