Detroit, MI, May 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- A controversial ruling by a U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York paves the way for a new book, Spiritual DNA: What Jesus Said, that tells the faith-based path to peace of mind and happiness. The book describes the spiritual characteristics - the DNA – to make that happen, and a thought process for aligning a person’s thinking and behavior with God’s Will and Word.
According to author Ron Actis, Helen Schucman, an atheist, and a professor of medical psychology at Columbia University, started receiving messages from an inner voice in 1965 which she took down on a stenographers notebook. The voice, she later concluded was Jesus, dictated to her almost daily. She filled more than 30 notebooks over a period of seven years. She turned her transcripts over to a foundation because she did not want to be connected with them. The foundation closely controlled the transcript’s use until April 27, 2004 when a decision by Judge Robert Sweet released the text to the public domain.
“I condensed the 1200 pages of printed words of Schucman’s A Course in Miracles to 360 pages, (TBD) extracting the core concepts and identifying the DNA, to make it easier to read and understand. However, the words, sentences and passages in the text are those of Jesus. I also composed a prayer which captures the essence of the narrative to serve as a daily reminder of what Jesus professed, ” Actis says. “The concepts are so profound that I am convinced no person on earth could have made them up. This is the first time ever that the actual thoughts and words of Jesus have been captured in such a manner, and for such a long period of time. Their authenticity has never been disputed. It boggles my mind when I think of the significance of His message. His words deepen the understanding of the teachings of the parables in the Bible and extend their concepts. And Jesus calls us to join Him in the Second Coming – the end of the egos rule and healing of the human mind.”
Actis identified the key steps to peace of mind and happiness:
• Live in the present - the moment - and the future will take care of itself. Keep negative memories of the past and negative thoughts out of your mind.
• See others as perfect and overlook their faults. See Jesus and yourself in all of them, and be kind and helpful to them.
• When you sense a negative emotion or thought coming on, immediately think, “What would Jesus think?” Overlook what caused it, let it go and proceed to live in the moment.
• Seek guidance from the Holy Spirit in you, in how to think and behave as God created you.
Additionally, Jesus talks about the Bible, reincarnation, the Second Coming, the crucifixion and resurrection, the end of the world, the final judgment, healing sickness, dealing with the ego, atonement, salvation and a host of other issues related to life on earth. (Amazon.com, bn.com).
Separate from the book, Actis offers a Spiritual DNA Enrichment Guide based on a person’s Spiritual DNA Profile. The profile is graphically charted from a self-assessment Spiritual DNA Inventory. (outskirtspress.com/spiritualDNA).
