PATH OF NO RESISTANCE

“God leads you steadily along the path of freedom, teaching you how to disregard or look beyond everything that would hold you back.”  A Course In Miracles

“I will not resist my joy today.”

Our thoughts scatter like dandelion seeds in a breeze. One instant we’re thinking this and the next our thoughts go there. Our minds flip and flutter all about and are never still. Everything we see around us and everything we hear and smell and taste and touch are cause for more scattering of thoughts. How can there be peace without a calm and quiet mind?

Instead of looking around us at the dissonance and suffering for our purpose, we need to travel elsewhere. Instead of suffering, let’s think healing. Use nature as a guide. In our minds, let’s walk through the woods and listen to the birds, see the greening oaks and smell the new growth on the pines. Saunter through the neighborhood and watch for flower beds ablaze with joyful color and listen for the sweet sound of children’s laughter. Travel to a lake or an ocean and hear the lapping water and watch carefully the antics of the hovering gulls or the dancing dolphins. We can embrace a golden sunrise and immerse ourselves in a red-orange sunset. Or watch the stars flicker diamond-like in a black canvas of sky and see a full moon calmly shine its other worldly light upon the land.

Rather than focusing on the bad news in the world, let’s spend time seeing, touching, smelling, tasting and feeling all that is beautiful and right with the world. How can we help others when we see them small and suffering instead of God’s Creations who just need a helping hand?

And now the world is transformed from a place of fear to a place of learning peace and growing into our most loving self. Now are all things possible and now we can be truly helpful because we can see through the misery to the light of hope beyond. And now also, we are able to understand with all our heart and being that there is a Higher law that transcends our little laws of fear and ego thinking. All thought is energy.  How can healing happen within our minds and hearts or in the world if the energy we exude is anything less than the healing power of kindness, compassion, forgiveness and trust?

“I will not resist God today.”

THE PROMISED LAND

“God’s promises make no exceptions. “
“His Word has promised peace.”
A Course In Miracles

“I will accept God’s promises today.”

Let’s think of all the ways we keep our fears close,
Protecting them and worshipping them
As we fan the flames of pain and suffering
And keep alive all that we do not really want.

Where is Heaven now?

Being groundless our fears cannot attach themselves to 
Anyone or anything unless we choose to allow it.
Fear attached to nothing is harmless and will
Soon disappear into the nothingness from which it came.

Without fear’s darkness, we will see with clarity
God’s Holy Smile as it radiates throughout the world.
And we will know without a doubt that
The Promised Land has come and all is healed.

Let’s simply lay fear down
At the feet of He, Who tells us 
In Clear and Loving terms
“Children of God, your fears are groundless.
Heaven’s Peace is here and now and nowhere else.”

LIFE BEYOND THE DOOR

“Into His presence would I enter now.” A Course In Miracles

Before us lies a door.  Beautiful it is and filled with light. On one side lives the world we know. We busy ourselves about our ordinary days never trying to go beyond what is familiar to us. Now and then we look up at the door and even see its light. We sense there is something special on the other side. But we put that from our minds and trudge on in the world we know with the life in which we have grown accustomed.  We’re way too busy for nonsense like doors of light or other impractical ideas. We’re trying to survive here. And besides it probably isn’t even real.

Over time we become tired of all that fills our days and nights.  Tired and even sick.  Tired of it all.  Sick of it all.

One day we find we cannot go another step.  We sit down and realize how weary we have grown of trying to carry the weight of the world we know. It’s just too much and nothing ever changes or gets better except for brief moments here and there.  Our life has become a burden.  Our judgments weigh on us.  We know we’re right, but what’s the good if no one else does?  So many opinions; so many different ways of seeing.  Why can’t everyone see the world as we do? Then maybe things would finally change. It’s so confusing. Then a whispered thought comes to our mind. “What if I’m mistaken?” We quickly shut that thought out for that would mean our whole life is a lie. 

The door still stands before us, its light more bright than ever.  Something deep within us begins to stir and shift. As if a part of us that has been soundly sleeping is trying to awaken.  We wonder just what that door is hiding? We walk close but don’t turn the knob. We’re afraid and anyway we’re sure the door is locked. And we don’t have the key.  “It’s only a prayer away.” We hear the whisper in our ear.  We say the only thing that comes to mind, “Help me.”  And there it is, a shining gold key in the door.

We’re still afraid but our desire for something better becomes stronger than our fear. We turn the key and the door opens almost of its own accord.  At first we’re disappointed. It looks the same on the other side.  There is our life as always.  Same home, same family, same job.  But wait, something is different. Finally we realize it’s us. We’re different. We’re smiling. We’re laughing. Our eyes are calm, our hearts are light. We’re singing a little song.  We spend time listening rather than lamenting. Being still feels very comfortable and comforting.

What’s changed? we wonder. Then it hits us.  We are no longer carrying the weight of our life. We’ve let it go.  Surrendered it somehow.  We feel light and free.  We have no judgments and no fears.  One Who walks with us is carrying the weight for us.

Now we ask questions before we make decisions. “What would You have me do?  Where would You have me go?  What would You have me say? And to whom?”

Life is simple now. Our hearts have forgiven everyone and everyone’s forgiven us.  Truth walks ahead of us instead of being pushed back into the dark recesses of our minds. We’re in no hurry for time is not an issue when we use it for God’s purpose. When we serve God and not our fears our life becomes amazing.

God’s Laws bring joy and healthy thinking to every mind.

God’s Laws bring kindness and compassion to each heart.

God’s Laws show us there is enough of everything for everyone.

God’s Laws calm the elements and bring beauty to the seasons.

God’s Laws carry us to safety in each experience.   

We recognize miracles instantly and we see them everywhere. Most importantly we remember Who we are,  God’s Glorious Creations. All that little petty thinking that occupied our days on the wrong side of the door seems so silly to us now that we have found the answers to Heaven here on earth.

The answer is to ask for help and to listen and be willing to believe that it is there. 

The answer is to surrender our small thinking so God’s Voice and only His can fill our minds. 

The answer is to bow our heads, say Thank you God and then be still and smile knowing He’s in charge and all is well.

BLADE OF LIGHT

“I will arise in glory and allow the light in me to shine upon the world…”  A Course In Miracles

“I will be the sculpture of my destiny.”

All fear is but a thin crust upon the surface of our holiness. It’s the unforgiving thoughts that keep us from our peace. Let’s take a blade of light and scrape away everything that isn’t love. With holy tweezers, let’s remove all the tiny slivers of pain we have accepted as our destiny. With the blade of light, we carefully and meticulously scrape off our sadness, our sickness, our suffering and the world’s. Anything that blocks our joy can be removed and must for us to live our True life.  And as we scrape away all that we do not want, we polish and bring forth what is buried underneath, releasing all the happiness that is hidden there. Amazing scents and sights and sounds have been released for our enjoyment. With God’s Hand in ours, we are the sculpture of our destiny.   

In carving away everything that doesn’t belong to us we free ourselves for a glorious arising.  Our light shines far and wide.  And the greatest gift is that not only have we saved ourselves, we’ve saved the world as well.

TAKE A FLYING LEAP!

“God is the strength in which I trust.” “God’s trust in you is limitless.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will trust God as He trusts me.”

If we look into our heart we will see that it isn’t the world we fear. It is Love. We are afraid to trust that God is in charge and will make all the corrections necessary that will lead us to peace. So in that sense we are not afraid of what we think is happening or will happen, we are afraid that God’s promises are not real. We are terrified that He will drop us from the cliff of our own uncertainty.  And so we make plans. Plans to protect and defend ourselves, plans on how to make things happen the way we think they should, plans to be in the world on our terms instead of His. Human plans, ego plans, fear-filled plans. 

If we really trusted Him we would feel all our burdens lifted and would at last understand that no matter how it looks or feels it must be all right, because God’s laws are governing this world, quietly waiting to transform chaos into calm, panic into peace.  

If we trusted in God instead of trying to “fix” things with our narrow understanding and our fear-filled little egos, all that is not of God would fall away and this world would be a different place. Now, would we live in confidence.  Now would joy be our constant companion. Now would we at last be free.

Let’s join hands and take the leap from the precipice of limitation and dark thinking; from sad thoughts and worry and anxiety and watch with awe and gratitude as a miracle occurs.  What we will find is when we place our trust in Him, we cannot fall for we have been given wings.

God can’t help us when we won’t let Him in. Fear blocks the light of His healing Love. Trust lets His Light and Love flow through and heal.  Everything.

WHAT LIES BEYOND WORDS?

“The stillness speaks in gentle sounds of love the Child of God remembers from before … The stillness of the peace of God is mine.” A Course In Miracles

God lies beyond words. He is simply Love.

Joy
Abundance
Happiness
Health
Safety
Peace
Light
Laughter
Kindness
Compassion
Tolerance

These are all the results of Love.

The only activity required to give them and receive them is … FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness happens best in stillness.  The stillness that lies beyond words.

LIGHT AND STRENGTH ARE ONE

“Miracles are seen in light and light and strength are one.” A Course In Miracles

“I will laugh and open to my light today.”

A gentle laugh lets out the light that lives within the center of our spirit.
In this place, nothing can disturb us.
Nothing can harm us. 
Nothing can frighten us.

In Light we are strong. 
We are safe. 
We are calm. 
We are in harmony with every living thing. 

In Light joy blossoms, 
happiness flows and 
abundance is our destiny.

In Light peace thrives and 
healing is in every breath.

In Light trust is easy. 
In Light everything we need is already ours. 
In Light we are whole and perfect and one.

Light is at the core of every Child of God. 
Deny it, suppress it, disbelieve it, it doesn’t matter.
It’s still there quietly waiting for us to want it.

“Light is in you.” A Course In Miracles

 And that Light is Love, God’s Love.

GOD’S GIFTS

“I am entrusted with the gifts of God.” A Course In Miracles

 “I am willing to accept my gifts today.”

There’s a halo and a pair of wings for everyone.  
We all can raise our voices in perfect harmony.  
We all can dance with simple grace. 
We all can speak heartfelt poetry and paint a whole new world. 
These gifts are invisible to most of us in the physical world. 
The noise and discord in and around us distract us from them.
Our heavy judgments etched in concrete make it hard to fly.

It’s time to be open to what we can’t see or hear or touch or taste.
It’s time to believe.  It’s time to trust. It’s time to love. It’s time to forgive.
It’s time to allow our holiness. It’s time to free our natural joy. 
It’s time to live beyond time and accept our eternal nature.

Not in time, but in eternity is where our wings are stored.
There our voices are preparing to soar.
There our spirit is putting on its dancing shoes.
There our minds are sharing thoughts of trust and joy.
There our brushes are painting another way of life.

If we close our eyes and grow still, our gifts will open up before us. 

The way to peace is sweet and simple.

Forgive all.
Trust God.
Love one another.

And with gratitude and joy, accept your gifts.

RIPE FOR MIRACLES

“I am entitled to miracles.”  A Course In Miracles

“I am ripe for miracles today.”

Miracles are in every peaceful moment. And in moments not so peaceful. They can be seen in the obvious; a sunrise or a silent snowfall. They can be heard in a child’s laughter. Or a dog or cat resting by our side when we are in need of quiet comfort.

Miracles happen in the forgiveness after an argument, in the chicken soup during the flu, in the signing of a cast after a broken arm. They happen during a visit to the hospital or elder care home.

Miracles happen in people coming together to help each other during an earthly disaster.  Or hugging a brother or sister after a loss, or a kind word when someone has been emotionally wounded and feels valueless. 

They can be felt in the unspoken joy that wells within us for no reason at all. Nothing obvious has happened, nothing noticeable has changed and yet we find ourselves smiling and feeling lifted with no apparent cause.

Pay attention to the miracles in their myriad of forms all around in every moment. Focus on the peace and joy flowing through us. That peace and joy is the presence of miracles. It is healing happening. It is us choosing love instead of fear, even if we aren’t consciously aware of having made a choice.

God’s love lives in each one of us. It is seen as light and experienced as truth, constant and unchanging and eternally us, one with each other and one with God. This is the State of Love; the condition of readiness for miracles. And it is always there, just waiting …

Isn’t it a warm and lovely thought to know that underneath the dead leaves of our past experience; just out of our awareness lives this amazing world ripe for miracles and quietly awaiting our attention? And when we pay attention it appears in full panoramic view and nothing else exists.

WE JUST DON’T KNOW ENOUGH

“Only God knows all about all.” A Course In Miracles.

“I want to see the world through the eyes of God today.”

How we see ourselves and our brothers and sisters is our perception based upon a very limited view point. Most of us have only five senses at our disposal.  

“Only God knows all about all.”

Each one of us can see the same thing from a different lens and our interpretations and judgments and opinions will differ.

“Only God knows all about all.”

We all see the world through our own tunnel vision based upon our history and our beliefs and past and present experiences.

“Only God knows all about all.”

Nothing here is constant except change. This is a world of change. God is the only constant.

“Only God knows all about all.”

Our entire life here is based upon opinions that we interpret as facts. And even that can be altered in an instant as we re-think the facts or are given different or additional bits of  information.

“Only God knows all about all.”

Everything that brings us pleasure and everything that disturbs our peace, does so because of the way we interpret it. It is impossible not to have opinions in this world, but it is possible to lift those opinions, beliefs and judgments up to God and ask for help to see ourselves, our lives and the world in a different way, a new way, a better way.

“Only God knows all about all.”

God knows the entire back story of each of us which we seldom do, nor do we ask, “How did this person get so wounded?” or “Why am I in such pain?”

“Only God knows all about all.”

God will take our judgments and fears and redefine them for us, correct and purify them and then return them to us filled with love. We will still have opinions and perceptions, but now they will come from a place of love and we will be at peace because … 

“Only God knows all about all.” 

“I will be still today and let LOVE in.”

LIFE ON THE GENTLE CYCLE

“You need the strength of gentleness.”
“Gentleness means that fear is now impossible.”
A Course In Miracles

“This Valentine’s Day, let’s give our loved ones Life On The Gentle Cycle. And maybe some chocolates.”

Choosing God is what brings us Happiness. Happiness is ours when we choose God. It’s a gentle cycle. 

To Choose God.
Be Happy.
To Be Happy. 
Choose God.

There is no aspect of our lives in which we cannot choose God.
Therefore there is no aspect of our lives in which we cannot be happy.

So simple, yet so true.  And so very gentle.

Happy Valentine’s Day!  My gift to you is gentleness.

BREATHE AND SMILE AND REST …

“… look with Heaven’s smile upon your lips …”
“I rest in God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will smile with my heart today and rest in God.”

There are schools of thought that believe that all healing is held in a single smile. Could this be true? Could the simple act of smiling make the world a better place?  And rest and healing for our mind and heart? What if, instead of frowning at someone or something that we perceived as disturbing or disruptive today, we gently smiled?

What if when we wanted to make a situation better and we couldn’t think of the words, we just quietly smiled?  What if we wanted to convey something beautiful and loving to someone and the right thoughts to express this eluded us and so we took the other person’s hand, softened our eyes and smiled into theirs? What if we looked in the mirror and saw the hurt and sadness in our own eyes and we turned that around by giving ourselves a confident and loving smile? What if we felt the restlessness in our spirit and the world and we smiled gently and asked for rest today for everyone.

Our smile …

…lifts hearts and heals minds,

…brings comfort and calm reassurance.  

…can help heal our relationships.

…promotes healthy bodies.

…sends ripples of loving energy to the giver and the receiver. 

…conveys kindness, gentleness and forgiveness.

…radiates joy and love through us and into the world

…and brings rest to every mind and heart.

A smile is perhaps the simplest and most powerful form of communication. It dissolves language barriers because it is a sign of peace and friendship everywhere. A single smile holds within it the promise and the power of the Divine Universe.  So today, let’s do something wonderful for ourselves and all the world . Let’s open our heart, clear the clutter from our mind and smile, smile, smile.

Breathe and rest and smile.

YOU ARE HEALED

“The light has come. I am healed …”   A Course In Miracles

“I choose to see myself as healed today.”

What if God came to us in a vision and said, “Beloved Child, you are healed.”  Would we believe Him?  Would we be able to see beyond what we are feeling and beyond what we think we are experiencing and say, “Wow! Thanks, God.” or even “God, I can’t see it, but if You say so, it must be true.”  Or would we say, “God you must be crazy.  Look at me.  I’m a mess.”

Well, God is constantly telling us we’re healed.  We’re okay.  We never left His Heaven. So now we can decide this moment whether we believe Him or not.  Actually, He doesn’t expect us to believe Him, but He does expect us to want to believe.  Our little willingness opens up a channel for His Love to flow through. It is in His Love we will experience moments of pure joy, peace, love and light. It is in those moments we can “see”, He is absolutely right. We are healed.

Let our prayer be, “I want to see that I am healed.”

SO MUCH MORE …

“I am not a body, I am free.  For I am still as God created me.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will remember I am more than just a body.”

When we think of ourselves, we generally think of our professions or our jobs, (fireman, teacher, builder, lawyer, clerk) our relationships (parent, son, daughter, husband, wife, partner, friend, etc.).  Or we respond with our interests or our avocations, ( artist, writer, musician, gardener, etc.).  All those things make up our worldly experience, but they are what we do more than what we are. 

Our inner voice speaks of something else. 
It’s time to listen.

We are not our bodies, but something more.
We are not our weaknesses, but something strong.
We are not our doubts, but something certain.
We are not our illnesses or disabilities, but something whole and perfect.
We are not our dark moments, but something joyous and filled with light.
We are not our fears, but something peace-filled and confident.
We are not our roller coaster emotions, but something stable, constant and eternal.

We have a body. But that something else, that indefinable something that we generally overlook or deny about ourselves is living quietly inside the busy, doing person we believe we are. Our bodies have a purpose. It is being a channel for loving communication. But the body is not us.

FEELINGS ARE NOT SACRED

“I don’t know what this or anything is for.” A Course In Miracles

“I will take a step toward freedom today.”

Feelings are just feelings. We mustn’t be afraid to look at them.  Remember the old saying, “…there is nothing to fear, but fear itself.”

Fear is not a premonition.

Anxiety is not a sign of bad things to come. 

Depression doesn’t mean the world is coming to an end. 

These feelings only mean we’re afraid or sad or angry. These are just feelings. They don’t own us, but it is time for us to recognize that instead, we need to own them. The most powerful antidote is simply looking and seeing the feelings as something apart from us and not actually who we are.  The thought that “… this is just who I am” is based upon a false premise.  It is not who we are. It is what we perceive as our reality. Our perceptions are not the truth of us nor are they the truth of others. We have the right to believe in fear instead of Love, but is that what we really want to manifest into our life?

If the answer is no, let’s take a step toward freedom together and repeat in our minds a thousand times and then a thousand more. “I am as God created me.”  (ACIM) And do this until we believe, not in our limited and limiting perceptions but in God’s Holy Truth.

SHADOWS ON THE SNOW

“For the past can cast no shadow to darken the present, unless you are afraid of light.” A Course In Miracles

Pristine snow represents our pure thoughts. Shadows on the snow are caused by our fear thoughts.

Shadows move and change causing weaving patterns that may frighten us, but never really telling us anything of value.  And yet we pay much more attention to the shadows than we do to the purity of our own truth. We believe in the shadows not understanding that when we do this, we are turning our face from God and filling our minds and hearts with dark and strange illusions.  So which frightens us the most? The shadows we have come to see as our reality?  Or the light which is our own Holy Self?

Shadows are never constant. God always is.

Our shadow thoughts change from moment to moment, flitting here, landing there, distracting us with crazy ideas that we absolutely believe in.  Always keeping us a little anxious, a little angry, a little sad and confused.  We never wonder how can this be God?  We just assume it is just because it is our perception. We don’t ask, where is the love?  Where is the peace He speaks of?

But God, the pristine snow, is deep and silent and still.  Not the shadows, but the Light.  We can muddy up the surface with our shadow thinking. But we cannot change or harm the purity of God beneath the mess.

He remains changeless and eternal and always, always there for us and safely within us.

So let’s ask this question to break the pattern of our thinking. How do we get beneath the shadows to the pristine purity of God?  If God is really changeless and eternal and inside us then there must be a way to reach Him. And of course, there is.  For just a moment, let us lift our minds above the fear.  Instead of trying to hide from the shadows; instead of battling them, let’s look right at them. Our hearts may race like frightened mice through a maze as we face our enemy, the shadow, but keep looking. Before long a miracle occurs.  The shadows fade a little and then a little more. Before long we realize we can see straight through them. It’s true!  Shadows are not real. Now we can laugh at our fear thoughts.  All this time we have been battling shadows which God tells us are nothing at all.  The shadows may return, but they will never affect us the same again.

We are compelled to do the only thing that makes sense to us now. We fling ourselves upon the shadows that cover up the pristine whiteness and with great joy and delight we make snow Angels!

VICTIM TO NOTHING; SLAVE TO NO ONE

“I am not the victim of the world I see.”
“The power of decision is my own.” A Course In Miracles

“I will be a victim of wonder today.”

Do we feel like a victim of someone or a slave to something in our lives? Let’s take control of our victim/slave thinking instead of letting it control us.

Let’s be a victim of wonder
And a slave to stillness.

Let’s be a victim of abundance
And a slave to joy. 

Let’s be a victim of health and well being
And a slave to forgiveness.

Let’s be a victim of gratitude
And a slave to peace.

Let’s be a victim of trust
And a slave to Love.

As we turn our thinking around, the only rain we will know is the downpour of miracles. The only lightning that will strike us is a joy filled bolt of wondrous light. We will be drenched in healing and rescued by Love. When this happens we will see that we are a victim of no one and a slave to nothing. Won’t that be a lovely day?  By our decision to allow it, that lovely day can begin this moment.

GIVING UP THE FIGHT

“ For you must be as God created you. Truth does not fight against illusions, nor do illusions fight against the truth. Illusions battle only with themselves. Being fragmented, they fragment. But truth is indivisible, and far beyond their [illusions] little reach. You will remember what you know when you have learned you cannot be in conflict. One illusion about yourself can battle with another, yet the war of two illusions is a state where nothing happens. There is no victor and there is no victory. And truth stands radiant, apart from conflict, untouched and quiet in the peace of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will gladly wave the white flag of absolute surrender today; surrendering to God.”

If we think we have to stand apart from God and fight for our protection and our rights, we need to take a quiet moment and stand back and recognize that that thinking is what keeps our world at war; war inside our families, inside our communities, inside our country and in the world. And inside each one of us.

We don’t need to be at war with each other. We’ve already tried that and look at our world. Clearly that doesn’t work. What we need is to learn a better way.

Trying to solve the world’s problems at the level of the world is impossible. At the level of the world we are blinded by our own fears and anger and sadness and limited by our misperceptions and misunderstandings and past experiences. Instead we need to ask for help to rise above the fray and ask God for a better way. “On our own we can do nothing, but in God are all our problems solved.” ACIM

Every time we attack another, no matter how “right” and “righteous” we feel, we are allowing ourselves to be part of the problem and have let the solution fade from our sight. And now we’re stuck in the same old, archaic thinking that has kept this world in chaos since the beginning of time.

How can we doubt we need another way? A way that does not put up barriers to healing, but opens our minds and hearts to God’s Healing. We can’t fix our relationships, the country or the world with our judgmental and righteous thinking. When we try, we block God’s Love from flowing through us and make enemies of our brothers and sisters. We need to be loving channels for Him, one mind and heart at a time. Then and only then are we part of the solution.  “My part is essential to God’s Plan for salvation.” A Course In Miracles

Instead of blocking God by standing strong in our own limiting convictions for more fighting and more defensiveness, we need to bow our heads, drop to our knees and confess, “I don’t know how to fix this, God, but You do.”

And then let it go. Let our anger go. Let our lack of trust in ourselves and our brothers and sisters go. Let go of our need to have revenge and thinking vengeance and fighting back is the answer. And let go of the thought that God is allowing the insanity of the world. God can’t stop what we have chosen. God didn’t give us free will, He designed us with free will. Free will is imbedded into our Being by God and cannot be overridden by Him or anyone. His intention was that our will be His Will. If we choose another will, He can’t stop us, but if we choose our natural State of Being by choosing His will for us which is Love, then and only then can He help us.

SIMPLICITY OF FORGIVENESS

“Can you imagine how beautiful those you forgive will look to you?  In no fantasy have you seen anything so lovely.” A Course In Miracles

“I will spend today in seeing with the vision of forgiveness.”

Forgiveness isn’t easy, but it is simple. It requires only a little willingness to see the world and ourselves differently. God does not expect perfection; only an open mind and a willing heart. Not even words are required. Only the desire to be happy.  He reads our hearts, hears our thoughts and knows our intentions even before we do.

If we need words, a perfect prayer would be, “I only want to be happy.”  In that thought lies the happiness of all our brothers and sisters as well.  Because in that thought we have laid aside our fears for just a moment and allowed God’s Love to rush in.   

In our tiny willingness we are rising above the world’s laws of limitation and chaos and quietly letting God’s laws rule us. Now we can see that beyond the insanity all is well and in God, our problems have been solved.

We cannot do this for another, only for ourselves.  And that’s enough. That is quite enough to change the world for everyone. That is the power of forgiveness within the mind of God’s creation – you and me. “You are as God created you.  You are His Child eternally.”  A Course In Miracles

How simply beautiful are you and all the world through the gentle, loving eyes of your forgiveness.

THE WORLD IS A CLASSROOM

“Anyone is free to change their mind…” 
“Change your mind on what you want to see and all the world must change accordingly.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will gladly attend God’s class and change my mind today.”

We all have the power to change our mind.  Saying “this is just how or who I am” is no excuse for limitation and mistaken thinking or behavior. We can always be different.  In fact, we are here to learn and grow.  Not stay the same.

Love knows no boundaries.
Kindness belongs to everyone.
Helpfulness is not for just a few.
Gentleness is inside each one of us.

And the confidence to sustain these loving attributes is there as well. It’s time to tap, tap, tap into our better, stronger selves. If we listen well we will hear God’s Voice rooting for our best selves to emerge victorious.

Listening well takes an inner ear; 
Seeing clearly, an inner eye.

We all have hearts.  We all have minds.  We all have the power to put them to a loving use. We all have everything we need to be a better self. If we need help in changing, there is help everywhere.  We just need ask and God will bring it to us.

We all know the attributes within us that could be stronger, healthier and more loving. Our imperfections are not a secret to us or anyone else. 

Being mistaken is being human. 
But the world is a classroom and as long as we’re here 
Why not take advantage of the curriculum for being a better person. 

Let’s sign up together today. The tuition is free.
