The goal of the book is as
clear as its bold title suggests. Gary’s communication with the two Ascended
Masters Arten and Pursah who appear in his living room
begins as follows:
Hello, my dear brother. I can see you are astonished, but not really
afraid. I am Pursah and this is our brother, Arten. We are appearing to you
as symbols whose words will help facilitate the disappearance of the
When Gary emailed me recently I offered to publish a book review on The
Miracle Times. He graciously sent me a copy and I confess that I haven’t
finished the book yet but I know many who have so I am fulfilling my promise
to begin the process of sharing the vital message that this book has to
offer. I am delighted with what I have read so far.
In my personal contact with Gary I have found him
to be very humble and it is obvious that he has gone through a great
personal transformation through his experience with Arten and Pursah guiding
him through the principles of A
Course in Miracles
It works! I am very
grateful to Gary for his single purpose of extending this non-compromising
message from Jesus. For those who are new to A
Course in Miracles Gary’s
book is a perfect bridge. For those of us who are more experienced, it’s a
great celebration. God bless you Gary.
'This book takes us back to Jesus.'
Here are some comments we have received
“You hold in your
hands the key to the solution for all the problems of the world you have
ever encountered. Pretty tall order you say! Not really. If there is no
world, there are no problems! Well, I don’t want to get into any more
metaphysics in a book review, but this book has helped me change my mind
about my whole thought system. It is an incredibly readable, easy to
understand, exciting new expression of the love and forgiveness Jesus taught
2000 years ago. It takes us back to the real deal and out of the sometimes
stultifying rigidity of formal church-like moral codes; back to the free,
spontaneous expression of love for your fellow traveling companions in this
universe and away from our tiny, nuclear cubicles of existence. I love it.
You’ll love it. You’ll buy it for all your friends and relatives because you
will be unable to lend out your own copy. Enjoy!”

“I thoroughly enjoyed
this book! Couldn’t put it down once I started…like manna to my soul,
feeding me with truth and light page by page. It zooms in on, and repeats
over and over through simple questions and answers, the fundamental purpose
Course in Miracles: how to forgive! This is accomplished through the
thought system of the Holy Spirit that Jesus dictated to the scribe of A
Course in Miracles.
In distilled form, it spells out the absolute necessity, urgency and power
of forgiveness, with practical teachings that explain how we ended up in the
mess we’re in and how through forgiveness we finally got out!
This is truly a wonderful companion book to the Course that clarifies and
emphasizes its incomparable value, simplicity (though not easy), and the
uncompromising change of mind that is essential for our true liberation that
includes everyone and everything. And as Jesus tells us,” this (forgiveness)
is a required course”…one way or the other, you DID do this Course!"

“Gary Renard’s book, The
Disappearance of the Universe will bring to the attention of many minds, the
availability of the magnificent, practical and transformative masterpiece: A
Course in Miracles. I have experienced consistent guidance and countless
miracles through the practice of The Course and my sole focus now is to
extend this wonderful message of awakening to everyone. Therefore, I would
like to say: “Thank you Gary.”
The Disappearance of the Universe is an easily read combination of
instruction and joking around interspersed with about 360 excerpts from A
Course in Miracles. I have no doubt that Gary experienced everything he says
he did. I had the same white shaft of light experience with my mother that
he did with his wife. .
For years I had light, angel, and miraculous experiences. I walked around
saying “There is something else happening right here if I could just see
through this.” As a scientist, I was always looking for sense and reason.
Soon after finding myself on my knees screaming for help; I found A
Course in Miracles. The love, purity and reasonableness expressed by a mind that is
obviously beyond space and time was like a drink of cold water in a parched
desert. So thanks again my dear brother Gary for spreading the word!
One final note. Although it seemed on occasion that Arten and Pursah slipped
into duality, especially in their discussions on reincarnation they made it
quite clear in the final pages that they knew exactly who they, Gary, you
and I are and that the time of prophesy has been fulfilled.”
“I have found the
Disappearance of the Universe to be invaluable in my study of A
Course in Miracles. A Course really is just that: you do the lessons, and then work
on your mind and thoughts as you live your life. ACIM, then, is like a
textbook for studying a new language; when you finish the workbook, you're
ready to travel to the country and start trying to speak it. Under this
analogy, the Disappearance of the Universe has been like a book about the
history and development of the subject I'm studying in ACIM. The book is
written like an ancient dialogue, with a style easier to understand than
Plato's Republic, but without limits in its profundity. Where the Course is
general or abstract, the book is incredibly specific, even being packed with
historical references. It has indeed enriched my understanding of ACIM, but
more than that, it has helped me actually understand in a concrete way
things I had passed over in A Course for lack of understanding.”

“I am extremely grateful to
Gary Renard and his visitors for The Disappearance of the Universe. It is
one of those books that came to me of its own, with no effort on my part. I
recently married, and my bride and I immediately proceeded to read the book
from cover to cover out loud. What an incredible way for two students of the
course to start a marriage!
Forgiveness…forgiveness…forgiveness! For me, the book was primarily about
the necessity of my own vigilance in doing the work of forgiveness.
Several years ago I had a personal revelation about this teaching that we
Course in Miracles. It became clear to me that this gift is actually
a two-part insertion from out of time. Phase I of this insertion is the book
itself – the concepts and right thinking that it introduced to our mind.
Phase II, which has already begun, is an insertion of Light energy that
heals and quickens our resurrection. There are many among us now who are
bringers of this Light.
I see the necessity of a book like Gary’s, and the need to stress the
fundamental work of forgiveness. The message and the timing of Gary’s book
is absolutely perfect. And the people that need to read it are reading it.
The Disappearance of the Universe
And the epic journey ends
Arten and Pursah as One:
I love you my brothers and sisters, who are really Me but do not yet
fully know it. Be grateful for the opportunities to forgive each other and
thus yourselves. Replace your grievances with love. Let your minds be led to
the peace of God, and the truth that is within you shall come to your
You may recall that near the beginning of these discussions, Arten was
describing J (Jesus) as a light leading the children back to their true home
in Heaven. It turned out that all the children finally found their way home.
Then, just as they all recognized that they are one and found themselves to
be innocent, the longer seemingly lost, split-off part of the Christ Mind
was welcomed back by God into the Kingdom of Life, never to be seen again.
The false universe disappeared, back into the void that was never there. The
illusory mind was freed into spirit, to love as it was intended.
Now Christ is so happy that It can’t contain Itself, so it extends beyond
infinity. And all the foolish idea of a child’s dream do not exist to be
remembered. There are no borders or limits, only fullness and wholeness.
There is no past or future, only safety and joy. For Christ is anywhere,
because God is everywhere. Unlimited forever, there is no distinction made
between Them. All that remains is One, and God Is.
