GOD’S MVC

“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 on a winning team 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; God’s Most Valuable Creation.

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.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

WHAT WE CAN DO

“I could see peace instead of this.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will contribute only to peace.”

What we put into our mind is more important than what we put into our mouth. Would we knowingly drink poison? That’s exactly what we do when we have a judgmental or unkind thought about ourselves and others. There is no denying the injustices in the world, war, abuse, sickness, violence, danger, extreme weather conditions, hunger and scarcity. We cannot correct all of the problems of the world, but we can stop contributing to them. And we can stop being victims ourselves. We can ask for help and be consistent about changing our negative self talk. We can believe we deserve better and so does everyone else. What we expect is what we are open to receiving.

We can bless everyone in our life and everyone who comes before us even for an instant and watch God’s world emerge from this one. We can smile. We can laugh. We can celebrate life and its myriad of blessings. We can believe in God’s abundance, God’s health and well being, God’s safety and protection, God’s harmony and balance.

Miracles come from Love. When we allow loving thoughts to fill our mind we will see miracles flow from us creating beautiful ripples throughout the world. Let’s put the poison away and sip the nectar of God’s joy starting now. 

We will walk in quiet confidence today focusing, not on what we can’t do, but what we can. And it starts with allowing God’s Holy Laws of Love to govern all things and ends with a world blessed and healed.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

MY HEART FORGIVES

“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.

CHOOSE AGAIN

“Choose once again if you would take your place among the saviors of the world…” A Course In Miracles

“Let me choose forgiveness, kindness and joy again today.”

The beauty of our power from God is that we can choose again. In every moment of every day and in every relationship and every experience we can make another choice

If we have felt fear or anger, guilt or sadness or judgment we can ask for help to see everything and everyone differently. 

“Forgive and you will see this differently.” A Course In Miracles

When we ask for help we must then be still and listen for the answers. God always has the answer and it’s always the right answer; the only answer.

God’s answer brings peace and joy to us and to all. His answer floods our hearts with pure love. This is the Love that guides us on our path and lights our way to fulfilling our holy destiny.

This is the Love that shows us a different world from the one we thought we knew. This Love rewrites our story giving us not just a happy ending, but a glorious beginning and middle too. This Love ensures there is no ending just a happy now.

All the answers to all our questions are in God. His Answer shows us that our questions are too small. His Answer encompasses our Holy truth and gently guides us on a path where only miracles are found.

As we take His hand and offer ourselves to Him for guidance, words dissolve, concerns are gone, darkness disappears and only Light remains. In that stillness that fills our being, we understand what we didn’t understand before. All things are not only possible, but are actually accomplished.  Forgive and we will see that this is so.  “Let me recognize my problems have been solved.” A Course In Miracles

And all we need do is choose again.

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

MIRACLES TRANSCEND

“Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.” A Course In Miracles

“I will see only miracles of healing today.”

Can we understand beauty that transcends the body? What of beauty that creates another world; one that transforms our small thinking into something glorious, loving and limitless? Today, let’s see our inner beauty and this other world. Let’s see it for ourselves and for all those who suffer pain today.

Help us see that quietly within our very being lives everything we need to experience wondrous miracles of love and peace and joy. Let’s walk through this world even in its most insane moments surrendering our fears to God. Together, we can experience a heart that always beats calmly and a mind that believes, not in how things look, but in how things are in God.

Let’s transcend our five little senses and look for more. Imagine the exquisite taste of delicious joy and breathing in the lovely scent of Holy Love. Imagine hearing only the sound of happiness and healing and seeing calm and quiet peace in every moment. Imagine the feel of angels’ wings wrapping themselves protectively around us as they whisper reassuringly, “You are safe now. Let fear go and feel your spirit fly with us.”

TWO WORLDS

“I cannot see two worlds.” A Course In Miracles

“Give me the strength to see only God’s world.”

Two Worlds One belongs to fear. The other one to God.

We cannot hate and love at once.  When hate is in our heart, love disappears.  When love is felt, hate does not exist.  What Child of God can choose to see themselves as fear-filled and separate from their Creator and their brothers and sisters through dissension when another choice, the choice of Oneness is offered them?

A song sung in harmony with many voices rising together is much more powerful than a single voice lamenting all alone.

One hand cannot clap.  One hand cannot join.  But many voices and many hands joined in harmony can change the world’s complexion and bring light to all eyes and beautiful sound to every ear.

Our power is in our Oneness.  Our power is not in fighting for what we think is right, but in joining together, and lifting our minds and hearts to God and letting Him decide.  God will not show us anything in the world. He will not say one Child of God is right and another is wrong. He will not take sides with His children.  Instead He will show us the world transformed. Transformed by kindness and compassion. Transformed by Love. He will show us our opinions are not the truth of us. Our Oneness is.

He will show us how stillness brings joy and how silence allows us to hear another Voice and a better way of being in the world. The things we fight for will fade away into nothingness when we let His Voice speak through us and for us.  And all will be at peace with the results of His Plan in place of ours.

Anger and fear are not conducive to correcting a wounded heart and a suffering world.  They only make things worse.  True correction comes through an open mind, a gentle thought, and a quiet spirit where God’s Voice can lead us on our path to healing through kindness and through tolerance, through forgiveness and through love. That is strength.  That is power.  That is truth.  That is all there really is.

One World.  God’s World. That’s the one we want.

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world.

LAUGHTER HEALS

“Where there is laughter, who can longer weep?” A Course In Miracles

“I will laugh myself silly today.”

Let’s throw back our heads and dissolve into delighted laughter. Feel how nothing seems to matter when we’re laughing. Let’s watch as all the things that filled our minds with worry have seemed to disappear. Laughter paints light over darkness, sunshine over clouds, smiles over tears. Laughter is musical and uplifting. It heals sickness and transforms pain into joy. It turns tragedy into comedy and brings happiness and oneness into the moment. Many a relationship has been cemented upon the common ground of a shared laugh.  Many a tense moment has been dissolved in laughter.

If we want to be at peace, a great first step is to gently laugh at those things that seem so serious. Nothing is so critical that a bit of humor can’t be found to lighten the moment. When we practice this simple art, we transform our experience from a heavy weight into a gentle lesson quickly learned.

May we drink in the intoxication of joyous laughter today knowing that laughter heals all things. And it’s contagious.

HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE

“God’s will for me is perfect happiness.” 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. But why would we choose against our own peace of mind?

“My happiness and my function are one.” A Course In Miracles.  If our purpose is happiness than it makes perfect sense that we must choose it, not only for ourselves, but for God.

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 and laugh gently and change your mind. 

“Happiness is an attribute of love.” A Course in Miracles.  To choose happiness is to choose love and to choose love is to choose God.  So do we really have a choice?

Look. Breathe. Smile. Laugh. Transcend. Transform.

And remember it’s okay to be happy. After all, it is what God wants.

TIME FOR SOME GOOD NEWS

“Let every voice but God’s be still in me.” A Course In Miracles

“I am ready for some good news today.”

HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS! Everything we do in fear, in anger and in sadness, we can do a different way.  We can fill our minds with Love so our paths are purposeful and helpful.  Sadness is not compassion. Anger is not kindness. Fear is not healing. These are emotions that block our power and keep us from being truly helpful in the world.

We can allow miracle feelings and kind and compassionate thoughts to live stream constantly through our consciousness.  We can let God judge us and all others with His purest Love. We can turn our anger and sadness, our stress and our sickness over to Him and then happily see His world emerge through ours. We can ask Him how best to be of service in every situation instead of deciding on our own.

We can watch the news and read the newspapers with Love instead of fear.  We can use the news as opportunities to bless everyone and pray for healing in the lives of all who suffer. In becoming sad, judgmental or fearful at the news, we are not being the channels for healing that God needs us to be because we are blocking Him from using us as His healers and teachers in the world. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care. In fact the opposite is true. It means we must care enough to give the world and our suffering brothers and sisters to God for true correction and true healing.

But first we have to pay attention to our feelings and our actions and all the voices in our heads.  Change can only happen when we are willing to take responsibility for our lives, our thoughts, our feelings and our actions and decide, with conviction, to choose a better way. And the only way that’s better is God’s way.

It is when it is lifted up and shined away, as darkness always is by light, that God can make the corrections for us that balance and harmonize our spirit so peace can flow freely.  And so with a calm and quiet heart and easy breathing, we say,  “Let every voice but God’s be still in me.” ACIM And then we ask Him, ”How can I help?”

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

FOREVER HEALING

“There is not a moment in which God’s Voice fails to direct our thoughts, guide our actions and lead our feet. We are walking steadily on toward truth.” A Course In Miracles

We are healing, healing, healing, 
Forever healing,
Quietly and constantly…

Much of the time, we are completely unaware. Though understanding may burst forth in moments of sudden clarity and erupt in joy, only to fade into a misty fog once more. But while the clarity lasts we are filled with peace and understanding so deep and wondrous that we know for that holy instant life is perfect and so are we.

Though we can’t yet sustain our understanding, there is a stillness and a knowing deep inside us that cannot be disturbed. A light that cannot be extinguished. A pressing forward that cannot be deterred. That quiet knowing lives in us awaiting the opportunity for the next moment of light and joy to push through the misty darkness of our fears and doubts. Now we are gladly given another glimpse of truth. And each time we feel it, or hear it, or see it and every loving miracle we experience no matter how insignificant it may seem to us, is really huge in its power to bring us closer to the holy truth of who and what we are. 

Our power is in our ability to choose. And every time we choose the true over the false, our miracle muscle is strengthened and our fear muscle is weakened and we find ourselves watching more and more closely for loving, healing moments that lift our hearts to new and higher heights.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

LET HAPPINESS HAPPEN

“God being Love is also happiness. God’s Will for me is perfect happiness. I accept God’s will for happiness for me.” A Course In Miracles

“I will let happiness happen today.”

“Sitting quietly in the hush of dawn, we hear the waking sounds of earth and see the shifts in light and shadow that a more hurried mind would miss. Impatience wastes happiness.” Hugh Prather

The secret to peace and happiness is don’t try to achieve it.  Just let it happen.  We think we have to work to be happy.  It’s just the opposite.  Happiness is a state of being, not doing.  There is nothing we can do or possess that will make us happy or unhappy. Happiness is.  It’s in us already. 

We think our natural state is challenge and fear and anger, guilt and sadness. We think we have to fight those feelings and stamp them out in order to be happy.  We think we have to hide them and from them, pushing them deep inside of us where we can forget them.  Or we think we must project them onto others. And we think we must do all this NOW! 

The better way is to accept our feelings no matter what they are.  Stand back and accept, “I am afraid here.”  “I am mad about this.” “Look how sad I am.” “I feel so guilty!” Accept the feelings and then release them. Looking and hanging on is another mistake. It’s LOOK AND LET GO! 

It’s true the only thing we fear is fear.  But keeping it a secret (even from ourselves) or projecting it onto the world by lashing out is where we make our mistakes. When we simply accept and rest in the fear, then surrender it to Love it dies a gentle death.  It is the same as turning on the light in a dark room.  When we shine the light upon our fears, they disappear into that light which is our own truth. And we do this quietly in the hush of dawn or the gentleness of dusk or any time we find or make a quiet, unhurried moment for ourselves.

Love and accept yourself exactly as you are. And accept others as they are. When we can do that, then our mistakes are no longer cause for condemnation, they are opportunities for learning and growing.  And now in this clean, pure state of innocence and of love and acceptance, we can be open to our happiness, our peace, our joy … our true essence which lives and breathes and walks in Light. And we remember God’s word, “There is nothing to fear.” A Course In Miracles

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

”I am the light of the world.  The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.” A Course In Miracles

“I will choose Light and Peace today in all things.”

Light in the spiritual sense is an internal thing.  Unlike the sun, the moon and the stars, it shines eternally within us.  It can be a quiet sense of knowing or well being or a glorious radiance of happy wonder that emanates from our very core.

“The Light has come.  I am at peace.” A Course In Miracles

When our light is allowed, it shines on everything in our path. No thoughts of darkness or fear, no worry or anxiety can disturb our peace in this light. It comes from our true being, from God that lives in each of us.  It cannot be turned off with a switch, but can only be temporarily forgotten or hidden behind a fog of misunderstanding when we place our focus elsewhere. 

“The Light has come.  I am at peace.” A Course In Miracles

Light like joy is a choice.  It can be chosen in each moment and in every experience.  When we choose Light in everything, all answers come to us as soon as the questions are asked.  All obstacles are removed from our path because our light simply shines them away.  It’s important to understand that to truly experience our light we must also choose to see it in others.

“The Light has come.  I am at peace.” A Course In Miracles

Light cannot be contained, but only hidden behind the clouds for a time. As soon as we choose to brush the clouds away, there it is, LIGHT.  God is the source of our Light. Created in His likeness we are His Light in the world. Constant and eternal and forever our Light shines like a beacon for healing and happiness.  Let’s join ourselves in our own Light today and be at peace from this moment on.

“The Light has come. I have forgiven the world.” A Course In Miracles

PRAYER For September 11

“Miracles are seen in Light.” A Course In Miracles

Dear God, show us how to be Keepers of the Light and instruments of peace today. We truly want to be Your helpers in the healing of the world. Now are we serving from our highest place as we remember that to be truly helpful we must give this day to You. We must think Your thoughts, speak Your words and see and do and be as You created us.

And as we willingly and gratefully serve You today, let us remember that it is through our loving thoughts and kind actions that we are helping to transform a place of fear into a world of joy and Light where we can live in peace and our children can be safe. 

And let us remember with gratitude the original Keepers of the Light who fought so hard to protect us on that day in 2001.  The ones who survived and the ones who left us. And prayers for continued healing and peace for their families.

SMILE AT FEAR

“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 and see the light beyond.”

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 would  listen to, which muscle we want to strengthen.

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. “There is nothing to fear.” A Course In Miracles

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

PAY ATTENTION

“You need offer only undivided attention. Everything else will be given you.” A Course In Miracles

“I will pay attention only to Love today.”

Let’s watch our thoughts today.  Let’s watch our minds wandering a crooked path of anxiety and confusion. And to add to the complication, there are boulders to climb over and fallen trees blocking us along the way. There is no map that we can follow for this path because it twists and turns and then spins back upon itself for no reason at all.  One moment we’re heading in one direction, then without provocation we’re suddenly somewhere else.  Like a cat that can’t make up its mind. The cat appears to be resting comfortably in the living room, then for no known reason, it leaps up and races willy nilly into the kitchen and leaps onto the refrigerator. Like the cat’s, our thoughts have no consistent purpose that we can see, but to keep us distracted and confused about our reality.  Unlike the cat who is only being itself and following its nature, our thinking comes from fear.  Not from fear of bad things happening, but from fear of LOVE happening. We don’t really understand Love and so we wander our crooked, winding path unconsciously keeping Love away while believing strongly that we’re searching for it.  

Love would straighten the path, remove the boulders, lift the trees and change our life.  This is a terrifying thought for some, although we all would deny it.  No one wants to believe that they are more comfortable in their pain than without it. And so we continue to perpetuate fear-filled thoughts that keep us on this dark and twisted, but familiar path. 

We feel amazing when we observe or are instrumental in creating joyous miracles. Yet we never keep our joy for long.  Love is tolerable in small doses, but our egos can’t allow Love to rule us or be our constant experience. The tiny, noisy ego would fall away in the face of the glorious Light of God’s Love.  We’re so afraid to lose our ego, our individuality and our independence that we do whatever we need to do to keep it alive,  including block God’s Love from our experience. We think we are here to be separate from each other, but in truth we are here to recognize our Oneness.

We judge ourselves and others.  We get angry over the smallest things. We justify our righteous thinking. We watch the news and read the newspapers to keep ourselves informed as to just how bad things are. We keep our sadness wrapped around us like a protective cloak. We complain about our stress and how it is making us sick.  And yet we don’t give it up by surrendering it to God. Instead we allow it to have power over us and continue to complain and to get sick. 

When we allow God’s loving laws to rule our experience instead of the world’s laws of fear, we will be allowing holy miracles to rain upon us and splash our lives with Light and Joy; with Peace and Love. This peace, this love and joy doesn’t come and go, but stays constant and eternal. It extends through us from the Divine Universe.  Now we can be the channel through which His Love flows and all healing happens.  And it all comes from paying attention – not to the ego, but to God.

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

JUDGEMENT OUT; HEALING IN

“Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” A Course In Miracles

“I will let God handle things today.”

Instead of focusing so intently on our imperfections and our fears and all that we perceive to be negative about ourselves and others and the world, why don’t we instead focus on simply accepting who we are just the way we are?  “I love and accept myself exactly as I am.” And then accept others for themselves as well. Once we have accepted life as it is, we can then begin the process of inner change.  “For it is on this forgiveness rests, and is but natural.” A Course In Miracles 

We have trained ourselves to judge everything and everyone … to the nth degree.  We thrive on our judgments, because we believe in them so strongly.  If something “looks” a certain way, we say it is so. We believe in what we think we see as though it were etched in stone. Many a relationship has suffered for just such thinking. 

Much fear has been justified in the name of righteousness. It doesn’t help that we have a great capacity to forget how many times we have judged and were wrong. And even when we remember we were wrong, we still managed to turn that to our advantage somehow so we can keep on being right. It takes great honesty and humility and forgiveness of ourselves and others to admit we made a mistake and then to learn from that mistake and allow it to be healed. “Forgiveness is the only sane response.” A Course In Miracles

If we’re not sure we believe in the power of our judgments, let’s do this exercise. Let’s take a strong opinion we have about something in our life and try and let it go. Religion, Relationships, Politics, Differences, Justice, Money, and Death are just a few topics we may feel strongly about. Let’s take an opinion about any one of these things and let it go. Feel the stress from trying to swallow that idea?  And yet it is these very judgments that keep us imprisoned in a world of suffering and pain.

God’s job is to impress His loving judgment upon all these things that worry us so much. To let go of judgment does not mean the world will go to hell in a hand basket. It only means that we are letting God handle what belongs to Him so all these complicated things can be simplified and the world can be open to His Holy Healing.    

Every judgment thought slams a door on God.  Every acceptance thought opens a heart and lets Him in. Every forgiveness thought radiates love and heals the world a little more.

This is our moment to banish judgment and welcome healing through forgiveness and love. Let’s join hands and minds and hearts and do it! “Forgiveness offers everything I want.” A Course In Miracles

SAY YES TO LIFE

“God being love is also happiness. I will seek only what is mine in truth.” A Course In Miracles

“I will say YES to life today.”

Let’s see how many times we can say yes today.  Not yes in the sense that we are afraid to say no, but YES in the sense that we allow ourselves to be open to the possibilities for a beautiful experience in each moment.

Below are some YES thoughts for us to consider.

YES, I give myself permission to be happy.
YES, I will see my loved ones as the lights of my life.
YES, I will laugh in the rain and celebrate in the sun.
YES, I will see the beauty in my spirit.

YES, I will forgive everyone and everything today.
YES, I will stop and experience nature knowing it is free.
YES, I will believe I am not this body and this body is not me.
YES, I will accept I am Holy and Beloved beyond this world.
YES, I will use my body as an instrument of peace.
YES, I will enjoy the world without guilt.
YES, I will welcome everyone with an open mind.
YES, I will trust that there are possibilities for joy in every experience.
YES, I will forgive every grievance for my own peace of mind.
YES, I will not be afraid to be open to joy knowing joy is my truth.
YES, I will calm my mind and quiet my thoughts.

YES, I will surrender all things to God today.
YES, I will experience my life with mindful grace.
YES, I will be patient with everyone who comes before me.
YES, I will spend time every day becoming centered.
YES, I will silently listen to God’s Will in all things.

YES, I will remember we are all ONE!

Whenever our cautious, fearful mind wants to deny us our peace and joy, let’s ask how we can turn that NO into a happy YES.  Every YES that comes from Love is a miracle.

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

OUR REAL JOB

“My happiness and my function are one.” A Course In Miracles

“I will do my real job today.”

If we think of God as the Employer and ourselves as the employee and the product as Happiness, then unless we manufacture Happiness in its highest sense, we are not doing our job. It’s time to set aside our small aspirations involving grievances, sadness and anger, judgment and guilt or worldly things and earthly power and ask God what the real goal is.

God’s Office is always open. His Plan is the only One that will serve the world and provide the Holy Health Care, the perfect Child Care, the amazing Salary and all the Abundance and Benefits that Heaven can offer.  All we need do is agree to His Terms and choose Happiness as the product we want to invest in. Happiness will make us rich in every way.

We are not meant to serve in our own self designed cubicles. We are meant to serve in limitless and eternal joy. Let’s quietly close the door on our belief in failure from the past and open the window of opportunity in this moment. As we make the conscious choice to make happiness our real job, the world will change before our eyes.  Now, we will live and work in a happy place created from our own thoughts. And our real Boss will provide Bonuses that will delight us. We will be amazed at how easy it is to create Happiness. And how quickly sharing it with others will magnify and increase it for ourselves.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

Let our prayer be for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

NOURISH LOVE

“The miracle of life is ageless, born in time but nourished in eternity.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will nurture happiness.” Hugh Prather, Spirit Teacher

Think of happiness as a flowering plant. The flower is the expression of that happiness, but it is the root that needs to be nourished before the flower can bloom. Where is the root? Down deep and in the dark recesses of the earth. In us, it is the deep recesses of our heart that must be nourished before the smile on our face can bloom. Let’s focus today on nourishing our heart with the fresh, cool waters of kindness and forgiveness. As we radiate those attributes from our heart, not only will our smile bloom, but we will also be nourishing the hearts of those around us and making beautiful smiles bloom wherever we go.

And that’s a miracle. That is a quiet walk with God in the garden of His Truth. In the world we may have our differences, but in God’s Truth we are one. There are many different types of flowers, but in the end they are all flowers.

Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness, safety and peace of mind we want for every man, woman and child on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God! “A happy outcome to all things is sure.” A Course In Miracles
