Teachings of Christ Mind
Christ Mind flows from a way of being that is Christ. It is a way of living that was demonstrated by Jesus and others and expressed fully by the quote:
Not my will but thine be done.
There is a depth to these words that is revealed through deep self-honesty and an acknowledgement of the wisdom found at the center of an open heart and recognized by a mind at peace.
The Way of Christ is not a belief but a way of life that allows and forgives and cultivates the recognition of innocence and safety in each moment.
Christ Mind teachings guide and inspire such a life. They are not new and have been expressed by many throughout human history. Few have given themselves fully to living such a life yet this is changing and changing rapidly. We are living in a time where the call to awaken is being heard and embraced.
This site offers a small but growing collection of Christ Mind teachings easily accessible and freely available. We hope you will find it helpful on your journey and a source of inspiration and encouragement.
The library contains teachings that have a similar theme but differ in the way the ideas are expressed. Taken together, these differences offer a broad and well-rounded view of the material expressed. It’s very much like having the ability to walk around and look at all aspects of a beautiful work of art instead of viewing it from only one perspective.
Christ Mind teachings tend to ‘sink in’ over time and what was thought to be fully understood is, six months later, seen in an entirely different light. This is because, as it says in A Course in Miracles, that:
Words are symbols of symbols twice removed from Reality.
Words are important and are the way in which concepts are communicated but the goal of Christ Mind teachings is not an understanding of the words but an experience of the Reality they point to. In this way the meaning of the words is known beyond concept and their truth apparent.
Currently, there are three sources of Christ Mind teachings in the library.
The Way of Mastery
The Way of Mastery material is the result of a collaboration beginning in 1987 between Jayem (Jon Marc Hammer) and Jeshua, also known as Jesus. The five core texts that have resulted from this partnership are:
Jayem’s account of his first meetings with Jeshua and the beautiful introduction to the pathway of awakening revealed in their conversation.
A poetic description of the journey of awakening taken from inception to recognition of self as the servant – one who walks this world awake.
The core teaching – a compilation of a three year period of monthly messages.
Channeled sessions given by Jeshua prior to The Way of the Heart, called The Early Years, are available here as well.
Q&A sessions occurring after a lesson are included here and grouped together for easy reference.
Additionally, the original recording of each session is available along side of transcript. Look for the symbol.
Northwest Foundation for ACIM (NWFFACIM)
Since 1982, Raj and Paul Tuttle have been collaborating and sharing a very down to earth and practical perspective on A Course in Miracles. Paul has written two books that chronicle his relationship with Raj, they are:
- You Are the Answer: A Journey of Awakening describes Paul’s interaction with Raj when they first met.
- Graduation: The End of Illusions updates Paul’s journey with Raj nine years after they first met.
Raj and Paul have been hosting a weekly ACIM study group since 2002 from which the audio and transcripts are available in the library. Imagine the clarity offered when attending a study group given by the author himself!
Study group material is sectioned by year and available here:
- Study Group Introduction

ACIM Sparkly Edition
The Sparkly Edition of A Course in Miracles, also known as the Thetford Editon, is available here as the foundation of the Library.
This edition includes:
What Can You Do Here?
The intent of the Library is to be an easily accessible repository of Christ Mind teachings that can be read, heard, and watched. It offers the opportunity for discovery and insight.
One of the central teachings of Christ Mind is that you “keep what you share” so easy sharing of library materials is a near term goal.
Here are some of the features found in the library.
At the head of each page is a banner that indicates where you are and provides links to other parts of the library. Click around a little and you’ll quickly figure it out.
Each page has a fly out sidebar offering links to features on the page and related pages. Click on the symbol with three stacked lines found on the upper left of the page.
You can set bookmarks clicking the “Bookmark Page” sidebar option. This will show a bookmark symbol, , at the beginning of each paragraph. To set a bookmark click the symbol at the desired paragraph. Click the symbol again to remove the bookmark.
To see all your bookmarks, click the “Show Bookmarks” sidebar option available on every page. You can quickly jump to a bookmarked page in this way.
Some of the material in the library are transcripts of recordings. On each transcript page that has audio available you’ll find the symbol. Click that to reveal the audio player and listen to the original recording while you read along.
When listening, the paragraph being spoken is highlighted and automatically scrolled into view to make it easy to follow along. This feature has limited availability because it requires an easy, yet time consuming, step of manually collecting audio information.
For an example, listen to this question from The Way of Mastery asking “Is Christ different from Joshua or Jeshua?”
Click here to learn more about audio timing information and learn how you can help.
When a paragraph is bookmarked on a page that includes audio and audio information has been collected to support highlighting and scrolling, then the “Show Bookmarks” sidebar option will give the option to play audio starting from the bookmarked paragraph.
Try it out with another question about the symbolism of the Crucifixion. Follow these steps:
- Open the sidebar and click the “Bookmark Page” option.
- Scroll part way down the document and click a bookmark symbol at the start of a paragraph to make a bookmark.
- Then open the sidebar and click the “Show Bookmarks” option. Click the symbol in the dialog box that will open.
- That’s it - try it here.
Searching through library contents by word or phrase is supported. Capitalized words and punctuation are ignored to increase the likelihood of successfully finding matches.
Just enter a word or sequence of words and see what you find. The set of matches is displayed in a logical order. Click one of the links and go to the page and position where the term or phrase is found. You can then use the “Search Navigator” to navigate between the search matches on the page and to the next and previous pages.
When finished browsing search matches close the navigator to return to an uncluttered reading environment. If you’d like to browse the matches again at a later time click the “Search Navigator” option in the sidebar or return to the Search page.
Searches are saved until replaced by a new search.
Head on over to the Search page and give it a try.
The Christ Mind Library is growing into an online repository for transformational material that offers feet on the ground, down to earth, no bullshit, guidance for walking this world awake – awake to the never ending embrace of Creation that is vibrantly alive and always new.
Features will be added to make the library easy to access and it’s materials easy to share.
Sources of information from any origin are welcome here as long as they align with the basic teachings of Christ Mind, some of which are:
I am the Holy Child of God, forever free and forever loved. There is no sin and there has been no mistake.
My life is as I have desired it to be and all power under Heaven and Earth is available to me to make it as I would have it be.
The recognition of innocence and the cultivation of deep self honesty reveals a pathway that organically flows to the experience of Christ Mind.
In addition to materials whose origin is beyond this world, such as A Course of Love and A Course in Miracles and others, as yet undiscovered, the Library will include inspiration from the application of Christ Mind teaching occurring to transform our world.
Let the trumpet sound!
Please send me your suggestions through the contact form. Thank you.
The Library has a feature where a transcript will be scrolled in sync with the audio recording as it is playing. The paragraph spoken is highlighted and scrolled into view.
This feature requires the capture of a time point that occurs between paragraphs and is needed for all paragraphs in the transcript.
This is an easy task and support for capturing times is built into the site. All you need to do is listen to the audio and click a large icon, , when the audio passes from one paragraph to another. You can even do it in the shop on your mobile device.
This is needed for both the Way of Mastery and the Northwest Foundation for ACIM Study Group sessions.
Please let me know via the contact form if you can help. Your help is very much appreciated.
