Why Hasn't the Message of the Course Spread?

New students, who are so blown away by the Course and its effect on their lives, often wonder how it could have been published thirty years ago and still remain largely unknown. Actually, many, many have heard of the Course; many have looked it over; and some have become students. But the only student you have to be concerned with is yourself.

In their enthusiasm new students make the mistake of seeing others in pain and wanting to get them to accept the Course as a way out of it. This overlooks the central lesson of the Course, which is that the journey is within and it is your own mind that you need to change. You do not have to be concerned with “others”, but rather with your own perception of them. If you see others as lacking, it is you who has projected lack outward. The urge to evangelize the Course is actually the temptation to not practice the Course by continuing to see the problem “out there”.

It is important that now that you have heard the Call you answer it. This is all you need to be concerned with.

The Call is universal. It goes on all the time everywhere. It calls for teachers to speak for It and redeem the world. Many hear It, but few will answer. Yet it is all a matter of time. Everyone will answer in the end, but the end can be a long, long way off. It is because of this that the plan of the teachers was established. Their function is to save time. Each one begins as a single light, but with the Call at its center it is a light that cannot be limited. And each one saves a thousand years of time as the world judges it. To the Call Itself time has no meaning. (M-1.2)
