Book Description
We all value relationships and hope that they will bring us the love that we all seek. Yet our relationships seem to fall short of their potential, and we wonder why. In this book, based on the contemporary spiritual teaching, A Course in Miracles, Robert Perry explains why and shows us how our relationships can be, not merely a source of joy, but the way for us to awaken to God and real love.

As Perry explains, for us to find this real love in our relationships, they must go through a profound tranformation that will take the form of a journey: a journey from special relationships based on the pursuit of individual interests and specialness, to holy relationships based on the pursuit of a truly common goal. This is not an overnight change, for the relationship journey, according to A Course in Miracles, is the spiritual journey itself.

In this book, Robert Perry guides you along this journey. First, he explains what the Course teaches about special relationships, describing the dark unconscious motives that drive our relationships. Next, he describes the shift from special to holy relationships, and then he traces the stages of the holy relationship as it develops into its sublime completion.
