Opinions thus far?
Well, I like it. Thank you for posting it. Although, everything he wrote can probably be found in the Bible or Upanishads, which were written a few thousand years ago. No? It is only a bit more modern interpretated IMO.
In this Home Study Course, did he also wrote about cosmogony and physics of how the universe is build?
Walter Russell is not at all the same stuff that can be found in the Bible that was written a few thousand years ago. His is a new cosmogony and if you like physics and that sort of thing, he gets into the very deeply in the book called the Universal One. The home study course touches on that stuff to from what I've read so far but not as much as the Universal One.
One thing I will mention is that his life exemplified his philosophy. It's one thing to have an awakening, it's another to live and walk it. Thus far I have found Walter Russell to be an example of his philosophy which was in fact more 10 times what a normal human being accomplishes. Truly amazing is one way to describe and another would be, (as Richard says) infallible.
I am more interested in the physics Walter Russel has to offer. And being more of an absurdist, I can't say I find genius in his works depicting this god stuff.
I mean we could say the universe is just waves, sure. But this oneness of consciousness, being so 'divine'. I do not seem to grasp this at all.
He writes well, and I like the ideas; they are nice ideals that we can hope for in this world, which I would say the same thing about in regards to the mainstream religions.
I don't really get it as "philosophy" though. To me, a philosophy has to include arguments that follow logically, with a premise and conclusion of some sort. Russell's writing mainly is full of those "non-arguments" called "loosely associated statements", or "statements of belief" that, while sounding nice, don't really tell us why we should believe what he is saying to be true.
Then again, maybe he does make some good arguments to support this philosophy in other works; I haven't seen it in what I read of him. Still, it is a nice personal outlook, but incomplete as a philosophy, in my opinion.
I am really courious how did you come to this conclusion? I like his words but to know he also lived according with them would give much more respect to it.

This here is the introduction to the Home Study Course by Walter and Lao Russell. I am now taking my time to restart the entire course and read the 1950 version of the introduction written by Walter Russell and it was astounding.
I could not find the intro in text form but here is the intro for the new one. It's worth looking at.
