A Course in Miracles teaches that the whole spiritual journey is a journey home, home to God whom we have never really left. Allen Watson describes this spiritual journey, as seen in the Course, identifying the stages we pass through as we move from fear to love, escaping from darkness and emerging into the light. Watson presents a map that we can look at as we set out, giving us an idea of the spiritual destination the Course is taking us to, and what we must go through to get there. This map helps us be aware of and prepared for the pitfalls and detours that occur along the way. The Journey Home also offers Course guidelines and instructions for dealing with some of the difficult passages on this journey. It ends with a chapter encouraging us to travel with joy on this marvelous journey which is worthy of our every effort and deserving of all our confidence.
