In her world-shaking novel, Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand hinted at the possibility of relationships without pain, fear, or guilt. Rand never personally achieved such a relationship, but she was on the right track in imagining such a possibility. Much can be learned about relationships from reading Atlas Shrugged, which measured in regard to influence on truth seekers is second only to the Holy Bible.
In his revelation for the 21st Century, A Course in Miracles, Jesus Christ affirms that indeed relationships without pain, fear, or guilt are not only possible, but easily attainable when we totally let go of ego-vested interests. Probably no better companion to the Holy Bible, or to Atlas Shrugged, is A Course in Miracles.
