“The light of truth is in us, where it was placed by God.” A Course In Miracles

“Let me be a light for peace today.”

Each time we laugh with joy we are sharing a new beginning.
Each time we smile with quiet grace we are offering love.
Each time we open our minds and ask for help to forgive
We are being instruments for peace.
Each time we allow our heart to beat with calm and quiet confidence,
We are placing our trust where it belongs.

God’s Love and Light hum here at the Center of our Universe
And every heart now beats as one.

Miracles are commonplace.
Sickness and scarcity,
Death and destruction
Have disappeared.

And we say, the only thing we can say,
“Thank you, God.”

And then,

“I would see you as my friend so I may remember you are part of me and come to know myself.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will allow and be.”

Allow and Be. Look, Surrender, Forgive.

Have we ever had a judgment about someone because their perception differed from our own? How we fought for our opinion, never questioning how it could be that two good people see something so opposite. Anger rises, voices become loud and soon no one is listening at all and nothing is resolved.

Aren’t we ready to ask the age old question, would we rather be happy or would we rather be right about this?  Being right can be extremely painful and exhausting like carrying a huge boulder up a sheer cliff with nowhere to lay it down.  

What if we allowed judgment to be suspended and our thoughts to become fluid? This may mean simply agreeing to disagree.  Or it may mean really listening to the other person with an open mind and seeing things through their eyes for just a moment.

In giving up the fight, we now allow our thoughts to flow toward the Light of our true being. The weight of rightness is lifted from our hearts and life becomes a gentle path with all rocks and boulders rolled aside for us.  And then everything happens only in the way it was meant to.  And that way is governed by Love. The battle for rightness becomes meaningless for us as we lift our faces to God and say, “Your Will Be Done.”

Above all else I want to see things differently.” A Course In Miracles

“I will see everyone and everything through the eyes of oneness today.”

Let’s allow our eyes to see miracles as our hearts fill with love for everyone and everything.

Let’s love the stop light because it blesses us with the opportunity to stop and breathe a moment. To look around and see small wonders. Let us love everyone who shares the line with us at the grocery store because they are us in different bodies. Let’s fill our hearts with love for everyone who works with us; for our family, our friends, our acquaintances and those we think are strangers and even those we’ve never met. Let’s remember we’re travelers together on an amazing journey. Not only are we one with all, but in God’s eyes we ARE all and they are us. 

Only the form of our experience differs. In our hearts we are the same; capable of fear and capable of Love. If we choose love for ourselves, we choose it for all.  Then let’s remember that in choosing Love for everyone, we will rise above the dark experiences that happen in the world. In the heart-home, where God’s Love lives, harm and hate can never enter.  Fear and sadness are no more.

Let’s join in our Oneness and see things differently today.

“In quiet I receive God’s Word today. Let this day be a day of stillness and of quiet listening.” A Course In Miracles

(A Meditation Blessing)

God holds our heart gently in His Heart and breathes His quiet, healing Love into it. Now does its rapid beat grow calm.  Now do its fearful feelings fade.  Now does it lift lightly with joy and with hope. Now does it know without a doubt that fear is nothing and God’s quiet, healing Love is all there is. Now we understand that all we want is held gently for us in God’s own Heart waiting for our willingness to receive it.

Let’s open our hearts today and accept our Holy Gifts.

God holds our heart gently in His Heart and keeps it safe and well.

May we remember we live quietly in God’s Heart today and that our safety is guaranteed by Him.

“I have no neutral thoughts.” A Course In Miracles

“I will think only loving thoughts today.”

As we understand the power of our thoughts, we will see how important it is to think Loving thoughts and let go of fear filled thoughts. 

As we exercise our power to see through God’s eyes instead of trying to see on our own, we will begin to witness changes in those around us.  Where there was separation among God’s children, there will be a new joining, a new willingness to be happy and peaceful with each other. Instead of reacting through fear, we will be able to stop ourselves and ask God how we should handle each situation that arises. And as we listen silently to His response, we will find ourselves using different words and performing different acts than we did when we were acting on our own. 

And the miracles will flow.

Love will replace fear, laughter will replace tears and abundance will replace loss. Harmony and balance will replace extremes. Kindness will replace judgment and compassion will replace intolerance. Health will replace sickness and joy will replace sadness, anger and hopelessness. Calm and quiet confidence will replace anxiety, worry and depression.  Brothers and sisters will replace enemies.

It will be a new world and it will happen through the power of you and me thinking only with God.

“My grievances hide the light of the world in me.” A Course In Miracles

“I will choose to be happy today.”

We are responsible for our own happiness. It doesn’t come from anyone or anything outside of us.

Happiness comes from a decision to be happy. It is a chosen state of mind. We can’t look at everything about ourselves or others through a negative lens without bringing a negative experience into our lives.  And in the same way we can’t look at our lives through a positive lens without having a positive experience. Call it karma or cause and effect; it’s simply the way it is. God doesn’t do anything but honor our choices. It’s called free will.

When we have a dark thought, our question is how can I turn that thought around? Then we think something happy and feel the happiness arise within. When we feel fear, our question is, how can I feel differently right now? Then we think of something loving and feel that love deep inside. Don’t fight the fear or the dark thoughts, but simply stand back and watch them. Then breathe quietly, rise above them, smile gently and change our mind. 

Look. Smile. Breathe. Transcend. Transform.

Happiness is a choice that we can choose in every moment and in every experience.

“There is no hurry now,
for we are using time for
its intended purpose.”
A Course In Miracles

“I will walk in timelessness today.” 

What if we used time for its intended purpose which is to heal and promote peace?  If we forgot about the clocks and the calendars and let God lead us in His own Time; would we see the world differently? Is it possible that if we surrendered time to Him we would somehow never be too early or too late? What we are seeking in the future and all that we regret from the past may be nothing more than an illusion. A time piece of our own making that fades from our sight as we choose to experience only this moment, this Holy moment.

Now is the time. 
Here is the place.
Here and now is where Heaven lives.

With this understanding we must smile gratefully and say a simple thank you.  And then our path to peace will open up before us and time will no longer be our enemy, but our holy tool for healing.

“Our innocence and our holiness are guaranteed by God.” A Course In Miracles

“Let’s let this be a moment of peace for us.
And let this peace-filled moment stretch into forever.”

As we breathe in the beauty of this moment, we allow ourselves to be at one with God and His Divine Universe and all the earth and each sister and brother who travels their spirit’s journey alongside us.

Now all we thought were problems have been solved with gentleness and joy. All that we feared fades into the shadows and disappears into the nothingness from which they came. All the bad news has transformed into good news and hate is gone and only light and love remain, constant and eternal, our Holy gifts from God.

We laugh with relief at how mistaken we were and we bow our heads in gratitude as we see only God’s Laws of purest Love governing our world and guiding our thoughts.

Only tears of happiness well in our eyes these days as we see the Truth of who we are. We understand what the words mean that our innocence and our holiness are guaranteed by God. We feel overwhelmed by love and awed by our own beauty. We want nothing more than to be holy teachers of kindness in service to our glorious Creator who designed us in His image as Spirit Beings using bodies and not the other way around as we mistakenly believed until now.

Our eyes light up and smiles of recognition transform our faces as we look upon everyone. Our trust in God is so powerful and true that nothing can disturb it. Our days are gladly spent in service to the One who only wants our peace and happiness and Who knows us as we’ve never known ourselves.

Words like kindness and compassion and helpfulness fill our conversations. Willing open hands replace fists, calm and quiet thoughts replace angry words and miracles of healing replace tragedy and pain.

We see all life anew. We believe, not so much that the world has changed, but that we are finally seeing it aright. It’s the way it’s always been beneath our foggy mists of sadness and suffering. But we were too focused on our aimless wanderings and narrow paths of victim thinking, to see the truth.

God is carrying us and He always has. His Light is here and it shines on you and me. Let’s rest in Him and watch trustingly as each peace-filled moment stretches into forever. As God’s Creations this is our true destiny. Our job is to simply accept our destiny with gratitude and grace and say thank you and Amen.

“I am the light of the world.”  A Course In Miracles

“I will walk in the light of my own holiness today.”

To truly see yourself, don’t look in the mirror, look inside your heart. That is where your beauty lies; where your kindness, your empathy and your generosity abide. This is where your voice sings arias to the Angels and you are able, in calm and quiet peace, to listen to the silence of God’s own Heart speaking constantly of your holiness.

You are an artist of the spirit, a poet of the soul, a creation of delight and joy, at one with all the Universe. Inside you Love lives, a constant flame to be fanned by trust and shared with all. And it is there that healing is always happening.

Look and laugh and rejoice at your true nature, your real self and see your Truth. If you find your vision blocked by fear, anger, sadness, anxiety, worry … LOOK AGAIN!  And choose another way of seeing. Be grateful for your sweet essence and your holy presence.  The truth will set you free.

Now you are an instrument of peace and a teacher of God.  Now you are serving your purpose as a healer of the world.

May you walk in the light of your own holiness today knowing you are blessed and a blessing in the world.

“Fear is gone from every face as hearts rise up to claim the light.” A Course In Miracles

“I will see a new world today.”

Darkness cannot long survive in the Light of God’s Holy Truth. We are God’s Light created in Love holy, unchanging and eternal. By following our true path we are now teachers for God and examples for our brothers and sisters and they will be lifted by our perfection and trust and belief in them into the truth of their own perfect light.

This world will be a brand new place. Though it may look the same we will know it is different. God’s Laws of pure Love will govern this new/old world and bring harmony and balance and peace and happiness and abundance to all. We will not be deceived by lingering symptoms of small fears and traces of shadowy darkness, but will see through them to the Light of God on the other side.

Smiles will light every face and joy will flow through every heart. We will laugh at the past as we celebrate in this heavenly eternal moment side by side and hand in hand.

“I am the light of the world. That is my only function. That is why I am here.” A Course In Miracles

“I will share my light with everyone today.”

It doesn’t matter where our bodies reside. It matters where our hearts live. When we follow our hearts and live the life designed for us vistas of blessedness and miracles will open up for us. Our pathway of light will shine through all the dark thinking and reflect the light that is in everyone and everything. We will free a world imprisoned by fear, transforming it into a world made holy by Love.

In our light all others will see their own light and rejoice for having been awakened from a crazy dream that was never the truth. All the world will bow before us in gratitude for our having been willing to share our light and our open heart and mind for the healing of all.

“Have you not wondered what the world is really like; how it would look through happy eyes?” A Course In Miracles

“I will recognize my perfection today.”

There is no need for self improvement. We are already perfect. All we need to do is recognize our perfection. We do this by lifting the blinders of our belief in littleness and limitation. We must let go of our thinking that we are something other than God’s Holy Creation. We must banish our doubts about ourselves and everyone else as well and trust that no one is their behavior.

We are not our fears.

We are not our insecurities.

We are not our bodies.

Instead we are Light, Spirit Creations of God capable at any moment of transforming our thinking into purest thoughts of kindness and compassion. We are able at any moment to understand this world and ourselves through the truth of our Being.

Let’s listen to our innermost thoughts and compare them to our outer conversations and actions. Are they in alignment? Is God within what we live without? Have we consciously and willingly allowed ourselves to be lifted above the chaos and the confusion of the ego world? Are we calm inside and out? Are we smiling in our hearts and on our faces? Are our hearts overflowing with love for ourselves and all others?

Are we being tolerant and kind and helpful? Or are we taking our natural state of holiness and perfection and hiding them behind a cloud of doubt and anger and fear? Are we covering our truth with foggy thinking and then claiming that the fog is who and what we are? And what all others are as well?

If so, no wonder we suffer pain and anxiety and sickness. We can’t hide our Glorious Being behind a mist of fear and doubt and be at peace. We can’t shove a loving and Holy Creation into a small box of insane thinking and not be extremely uncomfortable. It would be like caging a tiger or binding the wings of an eagle. It would be like calling a majestic mountain a hill and seeing the ocean as a puddle.

We are meant to soar with Angels and to travel with winged feet on a path of pure light with nothing less than God as our Guide.

The problem is not our lives, our jobs, our bodies or our relationships. The problem is how we see ourselves in relation to these things. If we see ourselves as God sees us, holy and innocent and perfect and free, our jobs and our relationships and our lives will reflect that perfection. Nothing needs to change except our minds, our thinking, and our beliefs.

The old saying “Bloom where you’re planted,” is true. In living our truth and our perfection we will become teachers of love and kindness instead of fear and unhappiness. Our lives will be transformed, not by outer change but by inner change. A new way of thinking will show us a new way of being.

“Let this day be a day of stillness and of quiet listening.” A Course In Miracles

When we ask for help, answers will be given us. But we must listen without urgency. We must question without expectations. We must wait without time constraints. We must trust without limits. We must see through God’s eyes only.

If we tell God what we want instead of letting Him tell us, we are closing the channel to His Perfect answer and He can’t give us what we really need. What we really need is what we really want, but we don’t always know it until it is given us. We think we know and we scurry here and there trying to make things go “our” way. But we can’t manipulate perfection and trying only gets us in trouble. Or at the very least gives us less than we deserve and not what we really want at all.

Our plans must be made with Him to be the perfect plans.

“In quiet I receive God’s word today.” A Course in Miracles

“I will be quiet in my mind and heart today.”

If you don’t know which way to look, look up.

If you don’t know what to say, say nothing.

If you don’t know what to do, ask God.

If you don’t know what to think, think thank you.

“Let me forgive and be happy.” A Course In Miracles

“I will believe in my perfection today.”

If you believed in your own inner beauty and your own perfection as God created you, you would be incapable of fear, or guilt or judgment against another or of feeling judged or attacked by others. Because your own certainty of who you really are would only allow you to see God’s light in you and everyone and everything. You can give yourself permission to believe in the highest within you. In fact at some point, you must.  Because it is the truth.  We cannot live in a false world with false beliefs forever.  You are God’s Creation. Because of this, all but your perfection is false.  When you are ready you will see this for yourself.  Until you are ready, I will hold your light, your beauty and your truth in my mind for you.

May you walk in peace today knowing you are blessed and you can bless, healed and you can heal, saved and you can save.

“All power is of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will recognize my true power today.”

We all have super powers. There is no power in this world greater than the power of God. It is God’s power of Love that is in us. Through us He can manifest miracles in the world. By opening to and accepting our Super Powers we would be serving Him as His Holy miracle workers. Nothing could bring us greater joy than to be a miracle worker for our Creator and our Source.  It is all done through the power of Love.

The only way to access this Love is to welcome it with open arms and minds and hearts. This doesn’t require time, but only trust. The sooner we begin to understand that only God’s Plan will work for us, the sooner we will experience our Super powers.

If we pooled our power for the world’s greater good, nothing would be impossible. So let us open our hearts today and welcome Love, God’s Holy Love, the highest power on earth.  It belongs to you and me.  It can’t be stopped. Nothing can keep our Super Power from bringing us the peace and love and joy, the abundance and the healing and protection we want. And all we need to do is welcome His Love with open arms and then trust in His strength to carry us to our complete and holy healing.

It’s not a bird. It’s not a plane. It’s God’s Super Creation! It’s you and me with Super Powers.

“Forgiveness is the only sane response. It keeps your rights from being sacrificed.” A Course In Miracles

“My heart surrenders and forgives all things today.”

Forgiveness is the opposite of judgment. Forgiveness means surrendering everything to God. Forgiveness is living in the light, breathing in the beauty of the world and allowing our blessings to flow and flow and flow. It’s not about condoning, it’s about compassion.

It’s about letting go of the past and living fully in each moment. It’s about praying, “God, I don’t know what this is all about so I give it to you for Your Holy Understanding.” We mustn’t be afraid to let go of all we think we need to cling to here. Clinging to our past thinking is what causes all our pain. Letting go frees us to fly.

To protect ourselves, we grasp onto our fears and judgments with tight fists. We are terrified that letting them go will be the cause of our destruction. We will not be punished for surrendering our fears and judgments. Instead, we will be rewarded with joyful and amazing experiences filled with miracles. The only true justice is God’s justice and it is nothing like our own for it comes from pure Love and nothing else.

Let’s remember our protection is in God, not in ourselves. As a Child of His Light, we are so far above our petty thinking that it is inconceivable that we should allow one unkind or unloving thought to keep us imprisoned in pain a moment longer.

If we understood who we really are, we would gladly let all the nonsense go and fall to our knees with tears of gratitude. His light would wash away all darkness, pain and suffering caused by our tight fisted attachment to our silly judgments of ourselves and others. We think we know everything, when actually we know nothing. All that is asked of us is a tiny willingness to let go of what we do not know and do not want or need while we walk with Him in happy peace and in calm and quiet confidence.

“Forgiveness offers everything I want.” A Course In Miracles

“If you raise what fear conceals to clear-cut unequivocal predominance, fear becomes meaningless. You have denied its power to conceal love, which was its only purpose. The veil that you have drawn across the face of love has disappeared. Thus does God replace fear with love and translate error into truth.” A Course In Miracles

“I will smile in Fear’s face today.”

Sometimes it seems that fear has a mind of its own. We know we want to be happy and at peace but fear just won’t let us. It wraps its claw-like fingers around our heart and squeezes the breath right out of our lungs. Or its dark shadow silently stalks us all day, staying at the peripheral of our mind until the night when all is quiet. Then it leaps out at us with crazy thoughts of this and that. We try to fill our minds with loving affirmations and busy thoughts that feel more productive. We may try to pray, or meditate, but our brain is churning with doubt and confusion. Sometimes it’s too overwhelming and we just cry out for help or yell at God for letting this happen to us. After all, we work so hard trying to be a good person, how is it possible that we can be in such pain?

But perhaps this fear isn’t such a bad thing. What if it is simply part of the process of our healing and really something helpful if we just stop fighting it?  What if we just stand back and allow it?  Feel the tension in our shoulders, the tightness in our chest. Can we unclench our fists and simply look at the panic thoughts and let the sad and angry tears flow free? It isn’t easy to face the fear with a calm and quiet mind and an open heart. In fact it can be terrifying because it feels like the end of our peace forever. But we know it isn’t. We’ve had these insanity attacks before. We know they come and go. They must be part of the journey of allowing us to heal from our past.

So now, let’s just watch our fear and see what it does. See how it fades more quickly with no resistance? See how clearly we can see God’s loving Light fill up the dark space where fear, just moments before, felt so powerful and real? See how our tears of sadness quietly become tears of gratitude and joy? 

What a relief to know that no matter how it looks or how it feels, fear is not real. Only God is. And God is only Love. Now, we understand, if we’re not at peace, we’re simply making a mistake. And we can smile quietly and pray, “I want the peace of God instead of this.” ACIM It’s not our job to correct the mistake, it’s our job to stop fighting it so God can shine His Light into our mind and heart and make the corrections for us. He does this by showing us the truth of who we are.

Will fear come back? Most likely. The ego doesn’t give up easily. But now we know the answer, let it come.  Sure it’s scary, but so what?  Scary isn’t the end of the world. If we can accept that and smile through the pain, even better. Our smile tells us it’s not so serious as we thought and opens up the channel for God’s healing Power. Now, we can get back into our right minds, our loving prayers and quiet meditations which help to weaken our fear muscle and strengthen our joy muscle. Fear is just a thought and so is Love. God gave us the power to choose which teacher we will follow, which thought we want to listen to.

One thing is for certain, if we choose to be at war with fear or try to hide from it, we only make it stronger. The only way to dispel it is to accept, allow and surrender it to God.

WE ARE ALL GOD’S MVC (Most Valuable Creation)

“In every child of God His blessing lies, and in your blessing of the children of God is His blessing to you.” A Course In Miracles

“I will silently bless everyone today.”

A single person trying to achieve anything is not as powerful as two.  Two are weaker than three and three are less able than four.  Imagine hundreds pulling together or thousands, millions and more? The more who join in joy, the more the world’s healing is increased.

Let’s envision concerts, sporting events and stage productions where thousands and hundreds of thousands of fans acclaim a single artist or an athlete in an uproar of applause and joyful shouts. My own heart soars at the outpouring of all the love. I cannot help thinking each time I see that, why can’t we do the same for God? And then my mind asks, and why not for each other? And ourselves? Is it really necessary to sing a Grammy winning song, play a Tony or Academy Award winning part, be an MVP or win an Olympic medal to reap the rewards of appreciation from our brothers and sisters?  Why can’t we honor and be honored just for who we are?  What greater cause for celebration can there be than to rejoice in ourselves and each other for being God’s Glorious Creation? Singing songs, acting parts and playing games is small accomplishment compared to that.

We see each other through a very dim lens much of the time. Why are our mistakes so much more valued than our holy presence in the world?

A silent blessing to every brother or sister who comes before us today will suffice, or anyone who comes into our mind. In doing this we are honoring an MVC.  

And now smile with gratitude beloved Children of a loving God for as we honor ourselves and each other, we honor our Creator. And a Holy Loving Light shines upon the world and darkness is no more.
