It was before five in the morning of April 6th, 1989. I was mostly asleep. I had been doing one of the daily lessons in A Course in Miracles the night before. The lesson was to ask a question and listen for an answer. The question was: “What is salvation, Father?
I do not Know. Tell me, that I may understand.”
Early in the morning I became aware of an unusual dream. I saw a book in the dream. The book was open for me to see. At the bottom of the right-hand page there were words highlighted. What I read
was: “Surely there will be capital cities: Pilgrim’s Point, Sahara, Puerto Rico.”
I sat up, turned on a light, and wrote these words down on the back of an article lying at the side of the bed. I laid back down and closed my eyes again. Nothing. I asked the question again and a series of words came to me. I began to write in the dark. I wrote the words down as quickly as I could. It was an awkward way to write. When I got to the word Gorbachev, I was so shocked I got up and dressed in some warm clothes. Then I went to my computer and began to type what I heard. I wrote for a while and got to a place where the voice said to stop. When I stopped, I got the notes I wrote while I had been in bed and typed them in.
Each day, for several days after the dream, I received more material, all during the daytime. At the end of one day I heard, “The name of this book is Peace.” The next day I got the names of six chapters. I moved things, which had already been typed, to chapters, as I was directed (the section with the word Gorbachev moved almost to the end). I received material for several more weeks, then nothing. There may be more to this book, but it is time for the words I have received to be read by others.
At a time in my writing I had a vision of pictures rather than words. They are shown in the text at the point I saw them. I’m not sure how they fit in.
This book began on the 6th of April 1989, about 4:30 in the morning. It began in a dream. I can assure you of but one thing. The person who types this is not the author.
I hope this book brings you the Peace and Joy it has brought me. This book is in six sections:
1. The Beginning 2. The Journey 3. The Goal 4. The Process 5. Change 6. Salvation
