A 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.”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 God 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 God, 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.

Let’s place our trust in God and take a flying leap because “God’s trust in you is limitless.” A Course In Miracles

NEW LIFE; NEW BEGINNINGS

“Everywhere the signs of life spring up to show that what is born can never die for what has life has immortality.” A Course In Miracles

“I am open to new life and new beginnings today.”

The symbols for spring are new life and new beginnings. In God we are given opportunities for new life and new beginnings every time we make a choice.  Every time we choose to judge someone, that is a new beginning for an outcome that we may not want.  Every time we choose to forgive someone that is a new beginning that will bring us peace. Whatever we choose for another is what we choose for ourselves. That’s how oneness works. 

We and our brothers and sisters are one, connected by God’s Loving Energy.  We cannot affect someone else without affecting ourselves.  It isn’t God’s choice that makes this dynamic work, it’s ours.  God simply IS.  We choose whether we align with His Love or ego’s fear.  Like daylight savings, we can spring ahead toward our most loving self, or we can fall back into the old patterns of fear thinking.

As we watch the daffodils push up from the cold, hard earth, and tiny leaf buds open on the trees, let’s allow ourselves to be reminded that we too can push through the hard old thinking and open to new life and new beginnings by simply choosing God in everything we think and say and do.

Our prayer would be: “God, what would you have me think and say and do here?” And then we quiet our thoughts and wait for our answer.  God always answers. We need only listen and trust Him to answer and our new life will begin.

THE HEALED HEALER

“A healed mind does not plan. It carries out the plans that it receives through listening to wisdom that is not its own.” A Course In Miracles

“I have no plans apart from God today.”

It is important that we face our fears, look deeply into our demons and rest in our own dark thoughts realizing that everything we fear is our own choice. Once we understand our power for unhappiness is ours, we can begin to understand that our power for happiness is our choice as well.  

“I gladly make the sacrifice of fear.”  A Course In Miracles

Our decision to value our hurts and fears from the past blocks God’s Light and keeps us from our miracles. If we doubt that we are valuing our hurts and fears, we only need to listen to ourselves. What stories are we telling the world? What pain and anger and suffering are we still clinging to from yesterday and from years ago?

“I gladly make the sacrifice of fear.”  A Course In Miracles

We have no idea that God can’t answer our prayers until we choose to allow ourselves to be freed from pain and open to peace. Instead of judgment we must want forgiveness. Instead of hopelessness we must want joy. Only our self-imposed barriers to His Love block His Answers and His Healing. It isn’t that God isn’t helping us or doesn’t want to. It’s that we won’t let Him.  We need do nothing but simply be willing to be happy and God will do the rest. In order to be open to His Voice, we must be willing to change our life’s story from one of a sad and sorry past to one of hope and trust in each moment – beginning now.

“I gladly make the sacrifice of fear.”  A Course In Miracles

It is the power of God within us that gives us the confidence and the opportunity to understand that we are so much more than our fears. If we take His hand, He will lead us gently from the darkness that we have made and into the Light that He has Created as our Holy Truth.  Now, we can forgive the past, let go of our anxiety about the future and rest in the light of this holy moment with Him. Through forgiveness and surrender we are opening for ourselves a channel of pure Love. It is from this point of Love, this Divine Love within our own mind, where true and permanent healing originates and from there that we must make our resolutions for change.

“I gladly make the sacrifice of fear.”  A Course In Miracles

And now we walk through the world, an instrument of peace and a teacher of joy. Now we are ready to learn to be a healed healer and we can bring peace with us everywhere we go.

ENDING SACRIFICE

“Sacrifice is gone. And in its place the Love of God can be remembered, and will shine away all memory of sacrifice and loss.”  A Course In Miracles

“I am willing to sacrifice fear for Love today.”

In this world, sacrifice sounds like something we don’t want. Something difficult and painful and unfair.

But what if we sacrificed

Judgment
Fear
Pain
Sadness
Anger
Sickness
Scarcity

And we allowed these things to be replaced with

Forgiveness
Love
Healing
Joy
Calm
Health
Abundance

When we willingly let go of all ideas of sacrifice we open our lives to the riches of miracles beyond our comprehension.  We often cling to those things we do not want thinking sacrifice is asked of us by God. Let’s choose thoughts of Love instead of sacrifice so we can finally see sacrifice is not God’s will at all.  Then we will finally be free.

TWO WORLDS; CHOOSE ONE

“I cannot see two worlds.” ACIM

“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 would 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 and one heart cannot join.  But many voices and many hands and hearts 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 and a quiet spirit where God’s Voice can be heard so He can lead us on our path to healing through kindness and through gentleness, 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.

THE JOY OF BEING

“God’s peace and joy are mine. God’s peace and joy are yours. Today we will accept them, knowing they belong to us.” A Course In Miracles

“I am choosing to BE JOY today.”

If we believe life is a rehearsal
Let’s practice joy …

If we believe life is “the real thing”
Let’s Be Joy!

It’s imperative that we understand who and what we are if we are to be open to our own happiness.  If we think we are victims of an insane and unpredictable world, we need to think again.  It is our thoughts that bring us peace or keep us tied to fear’s dark pain. Our thoughts are as powerful as God.  This is because we are the thoughts of God. Each and every one without exclusion is a thought in the Mind of God.  And God is Love.  And God is gentleness.  And God is all there is.

Be Love.
Be Peace.
Be Joy.
Be your Self!

“Joy is the inevitable result of gentleness.”
“Why would you not be joyous?”
A Course In Miracles

BE STILL IN EACH MOMENT

“Be still a moment, and in silence think how holy is your purpose, how secure you rest, untouchable within its light.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will be mindful in each moment today.”

Life is but a series of lovely moments usually misunderstood. Often our belief in time is the problem.

Let’s step back from time a moment. Now having calmed our thoughts and slowed our heart rate, let’s breathe in each moment as though smelling a lovely flower. Instead of rushing through our life, always stressed and feeling behind, let’s let time unfold like a panorama of amazing opportunities and wondrous gifts. If we will let God be part of every moment, we will see our perception of time change radically.

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

Now we’re never late because we are blessing each moment as a miracle. When we do this time seems to expand and everything we wanted to accomplish will be done and more in the same amount of time with no stress and no anxiety. We have stepped back so God can be our guide. It’s only when we try to walk ahead of Him and manage time on our own that we have problems.

“Throughout the day, at any time you think of it and have a quiet moment for reflection, tell yourself again the kind of day you want.”  A Course In Miracles

When we learn to be grateful for the time we have, time becomes filled with love and blessed by joy. Instead of serving time, time is serving us.

Living calmly in the moment, mindfully aware of everything and everyone, life is beautiful and time, our dreaded enemy for so long, is now a dear and kindly friend.

LET GOD DECIDE TODAY

“God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.” A Course In Miracles

“I will allow God to be in my mind and decide all things for me today.”

We’re afraid of losing ourselves, our uniqueness, our edge, our excitement and life’s many enjoyments when we choose for God instead of the ego, peace instead of fear, Oneness instead of separation. Well, the fact is we have already given up ourselves in favor of the ego’s way of life. And when we decide for God, we are re-claiming our inheritance and the life we really want. 

Abundance, happiness, peace, delightful miracles and an amazing healthy, safe and joyous life come from God’s Love, not from ego’s limitations and its paralyzing fear.

It’s time to decide for God so He can decide for us.

MIRACLES LIVE IN EVERY MOMENT

“Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.
The real miracle is the… love that inspires them. 
In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle. All miracles mean life, and God is the Giver of life.” A Course In Miracles

 “With calm and quiet confidence, let me see all things through God’s eyes today.”

Whenever we choose God over ego, peace smiles gently upon us and lights our way, rolling all obstacles from our path. Now every experience is seen through new eyes and every relationship is forgiven and we can rest our hearts knowing that every aspect of our new and holy life is held in the hands of He who lovingly takes care of all things for us. And with it come new companions; Happiness, Abundance, Health and Safety and perfect Oneness with each other and all the Universe. 

And the Miracles!  A miracle lives in every moment, but we can’t see them through Fear’s eyes, only through a peaceful mind and heart and calm and quiet confidence.

Now the world is Heaven and now we know God’s Peace as the only thing we ever really wanted.

AND SO IT IS

“There is no love but God’s.”  A Course In Miracles

“I will walk in love’s light today.”

The sun’s rays
fan out like
Angels’ wings
warming each
one that walks
in its light.

And so it is with God’s Love.

The full moon
shines upon the
world, a bright,
white light that
makes darkness disappear.

And so it is with God’s Love.

DON’T FIGHT; LEARN AND TEACH

“Teaching and learning are your greatest strengths now, because they enable you to change your mind and help others to change theirs.” A Course In Miracles 

“ Today, I will remember that there is a better way.”

Disagreeing with others does not mean they are our enemy.  It does not mean we must put on the proverbial boxing gloves and beat them with our truth.  It doesn’t mean we must disrespect them for their “stupidness” or assault them with our “rightness”.  It only means that between two children of God, there is an opportunity to educate and to listen to different ideas with respect and kindness.  And perhaps come to a compromise, a cooperative effort to make things better for everyone. There has to be a better way. 

It doesn’t mean we must agree.  If we don’t agree, we don’t agree and that’s okay.  This world was designed for thousands of perceptions and more. Some healthier than others. But we can’t help anyone see another way unless we show by example that there is a better way.  And that way isn’t theirs or ours.  That way is God’s. There aren’t two ways, there are One. The One way we don’t even look at most of the time, because we are so immersed in our rightness and so invested in their wrongness. We do insane things in the name of our rightness so even if we are right, we become wrong simply by the way we misuse our rightness.

The One way is God’s Truth.  It has nothing to do with this world at all, but with changing our minds about how we see this world and our brothers and our sisters on all sides of the divide. Our separation thoughts come from fear.  Fear does not disappear in battle, it escalates. If we are angry, we know we are making a mistake. God is never angry. We need to communicate and cooperate, and ask God for help in seeing the world and each other through His Vision. We need to become teachers of God by allowing Him to teach through us.

His Vision is Kind and Gentle and Quiet and Loving. His Vision does not point fingers, it joins hands.  His Vision does not raise voices in anger, but in celebration. His Vision does not do battle, it lays our verbal weapons down and lifts each of us up to the Highest Place within us.  That Place where God created us holy and innocent.

If we can all be quiet for a moment and lift our minds above the battleground and ask for help in seeing Right, our asking will be answered.  Not for their way or our way.  But for God’s Way; the way where healing truly happens.

“No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.”  A Course In Miracles.

Let’s be calm and still and let the One way be seen through us today. What seems impossible will fade away into what is Right.  And that involves kindness and forgiveness and respect and listening.

And then there will be real peace and everyone will be happy, because being right does not involve taking from anyone, but in giving to everyone.  God’s Way.

 “Let us look upon the holy sights forgiveness shows today, that we may find the peace of God.” ACIM

LIVE A MIRACULOUS LIFE

“You will receive miracles because of what God is.”
“ Let miracles replace all grievances.” A Course In Miracles

“You either live as if everything is a miracle or nothing is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

And a miracle is that the choice is ours. What does it mean to live as if everything is a miracle?

We don’t know for sure except that when we are living our best, miraculous lives, somehow no matter what is going on we sense that it is all right and good will come from this. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s not just a cliche. Let’s keep our focus on that light until our tunnel vision fades and all we see is Light. This is possible and in fact it is impossible for us to not be hopeful. We were created from light and so the tunnel is only us limiting ourselves and cramming our experience into a tiny, dark place where we do not belong.

A miracle, then, is how we choose to see a thing. If we choose to see the world as hopeless and to judge and criticize ourselves or our brothers and sisters or to feel lost, lonely and alone riddled with guilt and pain, the Universe won’t stop us. God won’t understand why we are doing this to ourselves, but if it’s what turns our crank then He must allow it. It’s called free will. 

God created us free.  It is we who chose to bind ourselves to limitations and misperceptions.

As long as we have free will anyway, why not decide to really free our will? Let’s give it to God and choose happiness. Think, “God’s will is mine.” This is the truth. God only wants us to be happy and deep inside so do we. Everyone does without exception. Happiness is our true nature. When we’re unhappy, we really are going against our own will. Does that make sense?

So let’s listen to Albert Einstein today and live as if everything is a miracle. Because God says that everything is.

“Everything that comes from love is a miracle.” A Course In Miracles

FREE WILL

“God shares His will with you.”
“How wonderful it is to do your will with God’s! For that is freedom.” A Course In Miracles

“I will use my free will for good today.”

Free Will is a powerful gift.
Free Will needs to be used with care.

Free Will means we can carry guilt and sadness and anger if we want.
Free Will means we can surrender them to God and watch them disappear.

Free Will means we can judge others harshly and dash our own joy.
Free Will means we can be kind to all and see miracles all around.

Free Will means we can close our fists to others and have a life of scarcity. 
Free Will means we can share generously and experience great abundance.

Free Will means we can hate and fear those who are different and keep our minds at war.
Free Will means we can open our minds to all and rest our hearts in peace.

Free Will means we can keep our expectations small and dark with fear.
Free Will means we can see our holy truth and soar happily with Angels.

Free Will means we can live a life of misery and suffering.
Free Will means we can live a life of joyous wonder.

Free Will is a powerful gift 
… and a great responsibility.

NO CARES, NO WORRIES

“Can you imagine what it means to have no cares, no worries, no anxieties, but merely to be perfectly calm and quiet all the time? Yet that is what time is for; to learn just that and nothing more.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will be calm and quiet as I watch for miracles in every moment today.”

How much time do we spend trying to hurry time along.  We talk about the things that make our day go faster as though that is a desirable thing. “At least it made the day go fast,” we say. We don’t stop to think that we are wishing our life away. Trying to speed things up so we can get somewhere else or to something else is a way of losing whole chunks of our life.

We say “Hurry up.” to the stop light. “Move it along.” to those in line ahead of us.  We miss valuable moments in which we can be quiet and kind and at peace with nothing else to do but wait a moment.  And in that quiet waiting, the world is healed a little more.

Many of us want to speed winter along so we can get to spring and summer.  But what about winter?  Unless we are winter enthusiasts, we miss it altogether. Or spend it in frustration and anxiety as we try to push ourselves beyond it. We miss the beautiful moments for being with our families and friends. Playing board games or doing puzzles or reading a good book while drinking hot chocolate.  We miss the beautiful landscapes of mesmerizing white as we quietly watch the winter birds at play. Even shoveling the walk can be invigorating and healthy and something the whole family and the neighborhood can participate in. It’s not the world as it is, but how we perceive it that blocks or opens our presence to a moment.

We  say, “Get this work day over so we can have some fun.” We are blind to the way our life can be beautiful and amazing and even fun at work. Work can provide opportunities to grow and to be helpful and to develop amazing relationships that may last a lifetime.  Also, there are great opportunities at work to experience forgiveness and healing with those with whom we clash. We must let God in to each experience at work so it can be transformed into something helpful and even miraculous.

Instead of losing ourselves in our devices to pass the time, we can lose ourselves in a book, or in conversation with those around us or in simply quieting our mind and being still. So much life and so much in life to be grateful for in every season, to treasure and appreciate in each hour if we but take the time to be in the moment.  Being mindful is freeing. Like releasing a butterfly from a cocoon.

We may have a day where everything is perfect, the weather, the companionship, the experience, but so often we hear from someone, “Enjoy it while you can.  It won’t last.”  Saying it won’t last prevents us from enjoying the moment and making it last.  What if we just be in each moment and each day and smile in gratitude instead of wishing or pushing our life away with thoughts of the future and what it may or may not hold for us. A perfect prayer would be, “I place the future in the hands of God.” ACIM

Let’s relax and look for love and healing through kindness and compassion in every instant.  If a moment is challenging, instead of pushing it away, what if we look at it and ask, “What is the lesson here?” Then we can learn even from the difficult times and experience healing and growth. Something worthwhile can come from every experience if we just take a moment to be still and just BE. 

And from being fully in a moment, we will learn an invaluable lesson. “There is no hurry now for you are using time for its intended purpose.” ACIM

LET LIGHT IN

The journey that we undertake together is the exchange of dark for light …”  A Course In Miracles

“I will open my heart to Light’s  presence today.”

Yesterday the storm, today the sun. The weather is much like life. We weather the storms and bask in the sun. The storms help us grow as much as the sun. It seems we need both to become who we are meant to be. In this sense all is good for every experience contributes something to our progress. Together, let us celebrate both the storms and the sun filled moments knowing that all is for a higher purpose.

When it rains, let’s let joy be our umbrella. When it snows God’s comfort is our warm scarf. Let us sparkle under the warmth of the sun and rest in the shade of the oak tree. Let’s splash in the puddles during a storm and remember, “this too shall pass.” On the other side of darkness we will always find the light of morning. And if we can’t see the light at this moment, we can quietly open our hearts to its presence and before long it will show itself.  Perhaps not in the way we expected, but better.

“Sacrifice is gone. And in its place the Love of God can be remembered, and will shine away all memory of sacrifice and loss.”  A Course In Miracles

God does not require sacrifice for God is only Love.

TRUST AND BREATHE EASY

”We trust our ways to God and say “Amen.” In peace we will continue in His way, and trust all things to Him. In confidence we wait His answers, as we ask His Will in everything we do.” A Course In Miracles

“I will place my trust in something Higher today.”

We must allow God’s thinking to reign, not our own. God doesn’t see the world as we do. God’s world is Loving and Kind and Helpful because it doesn’t come from anger, fear and righteousness. It comes from Love. It comes from knowing all about everyone and loving us as His creations, not each other’s enemies. He doesn’t punish His children, He brings them together by showing them that they are not what they think, separated bodies fighting for their life. Instead they are His creations at one with Him and with each other.

How does that look? We don’t really know … yet. And we don’t need to. All we need to do is lift our eyes to Him, open our hearts to Him and let Him in to make the corrections that are needed to heal us and the world. Simply stop judging and pray, “God, I give this to you. I no longer need to be right because I know my needing to be right isn’t helping anything. I just need to see myself, my life and the world through your eyes.”

This doesn’t mean we don’t do anything in the world. Of course we do.  But we do it with Love instead of judgment, righteousness and fear. We pray, “Show me Your will, God.” Then we let it go and TRUST in God to use our willingness and our loving work to make all things right.

No matter how it looks or sounds or feels, do not be deceived. There is something beautiful and miraculous happening on the other side of the insanity that we have to be open to so that we can be true channels for healing. Not warriors for righteousness, but doorways for love; God’s Love.

Now smile with relief that we in our littleness and limitedness are not in charge here. God in His Greatness is working through us. Be open to miracles. Be open to kind thoughts. Be open to compassion. Find strength in gentleness instead of violence. Instead of counting the world’s mistakes, look for the good things happening here; the beauty and the blessings happening all around us. There is so much we overlook because we have allowed our vision to be blocked by fear.

Watch the world change before our eyes as we become willing to look at it differently. And then no matter what appears to be happening here, because God is our Guide, we will be at peace and in our peace will rise great courage and confidence and healing will happen without one angry word or defensive thought or act.

God bless you all as you take a step in the right direction; the direction of God. It will take time to change our minds about how the world should be. We may think that gentleness and kindness are weakness and anger and vengeance are strength for a while yet. But the more we exercise our true strength and are willing to let go of our archaic thinking and then see the results of our new way of thinking and being in the world, the more we will believe and Trust in Him Who Knows All about All.

And the sooner we choose to fly with God on the powerful wings of an eagle and let the little sparrow of our small thinking go, the sooner will the world be healed, one Child of God at a time.

TWISTED THINKING

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

“I have the power of happiness within me.”

There are two aspects of us in this world. The aspect of the ego in which we live in fear and darkness.  And the aspect of the spirit in which all is light and wondrous and perfect. The aspect of the ego is minute, like a drop in the ocean and the aspect of the spirit is the ocean. Instead of seeing the drop becoming one with the ocean, we spend our days trying to force the ocean inside the drop.  See how uncomfortable and painful that is to live in such an unnatural state.  And yet we all do it.  We see the drop as our life and the ocean not at all. Or as a figment of our imagination, or an unattainable dream. If we only knew how bizarre that is, we would have to laugh at ourselves and our limited perceptions.   

The fact is that the only thing that is real is God (The Ocean) and He is pure Love. And we, as His blessed drops are created whole and perfect in His image. Thankfully God offers a way out of our backward, twisted thinking by allowing His presence to be in all things. That means that we can choose to see everything through the eyes of God’s Love if we wish and we can do this at any moment. 

Let us affirm ourselves:

“I have the power of happiness within me.  
I am willing to choose it now.”

 “I am a powerful, loving and perfect being. 
The fact that I have forgotten this cannot change it.”

“I am a beautiful, sacred and holy creation of a loving God and nothing else.”

“I am grateful to know I am a blessed drop in the Holy Ocean of God’s unlimited Love.”

QUIET CONTEMPLATION

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

“My mind is calm and quiet. All my thoughts are still.”

And remember, “God goes with you wherever you go.” A Course In Miracles

Winter is a perfect time for quiet contemplation. For those in cold climates and those in rainy climates, wherever darkness falls early and daylight begins late, spend this winter, not feeling cabin fever, but opening up to the unlimited and exciting space within where all things happen in a lovely way.  Let peace happen.  Let joy happen.  Let freedom from fear happen.

Winter is our time for spiritual freedom.  It’s our opportunity to go inward, deep into the recesses of our truth where God lives and where the Heavenly Light never dims.  That place where it is not cold and rain has no meaning; where an icy heart melts instantly and forgiveness heals everything and everyone.

And in those places in this world where it is summer to our winter, let us remember to dance in our brothers’ light and bring light to our brothers’ darkness by simply radiating love throughout the world.

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. No matter how hard we try to keep them so.

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.
