LOVE THE FRIGHTENED CHILD

“… replace darkness with light and fear with love.” A Course In Miracles

Let’s envision fear (anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, etc.) as a child in need of love.  We lift the frightened child into our heart and soothe it with a gentle lullaby. The child is having a nightmare. We must be kind and patient with our young and frightened self. As we offer love and reassurance to the child inside us, the nightmare is lifted up and disappears into the light of our own truth. Confusion and terror are calmed by comfort and reassurance.

By sending thoughts of love and kindness to our frightened selves calm and quiet confidence rises within us. As our loving muscle strengthens, our fear muscle weakens. Fear cannot fight love or argue with it because love simply is and can’t fight back.  Fear needs a fight in order to survive. It needs validation; something to hold onto. Fear cannot cling to love or argue with it. It simply slips away like a shadow in the night fades silently into light.

In lifting fear up to Love we have gifted ourselves with a power we never knew we possessed. That is the power to be happy in the face of fear. Just as we would comfort any frightened child, we can bring our own spirit back to peace with a simple smile, a gentle hug and a loving thought.   “I seek but what belongs to me in truth.  God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.” A Course In Miracles.

Next time we feel fear in any form, let’s smile at our self and say, “I love you.” And feel the transformation from fear into peace begin, one loving thought and moment at a time.

A NEW DAY, A NEW LIFE, A NEW WORLD

“It is a new era, in which a new world is born. Be confident that on this day there is a new beginning.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will see this world as brand new today.”

Our willingness for peace does not happen into a void and then what? It’s not, “I have peace now. Is this all there is?” No, our willingness for something better opens doors and windows to wondrous moments, amazing experiences, delightful opportunities, holy relationships and glorious miracles. It changes our world as we change our mind about the world.

We have joined with God and His Divine Universe when we agreed to give Him our fears and allowed our minds and hearts to be open to our own Holy Healing. So now we can have expectations for abundance and beauty and joy beyond anything we could have imagined on our own.

It’s a new day. It’s a new you. It’s a new me. It’s a new life. It’s a whole new world!

YEAR OF KINDNESS

“Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace. Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God.”  A Course In Miracles

Today I will be only kind to myself and everyone.

Let’s practice kindness on each other in this new year. We can’t heal the world, but we can be instrumental in healing our life. We can heal our thoughts and through our healed thoughts heal our relationships.

Our exercise is this. Next time we have an encounter with someone close to us, our spouse or partner, our children, our siblings and parents, our friends and co-workers let’s watch how we behave? Do we react to the fears of others with more fear? Or do we react with kindness and compassion recognizing that the acts and words of others are only a reflection of their state of mind at a given moment and not them at all. Let’s stand back and observe, not how others are being with us, but how we are being with them.

It is difficult and almost impossible sometimes to be calm and kind when someone is lashing out at us or behaving angrily. So in that moment sometimes the best we can do is say silently to God, “ I want no part of this.” Then quietly excuse ourselves and find a quiet place to breathe. The act of not reacting is a very powerful tool for peace. It has often been touted as an act of weakness, but there is nothing more powerful than choosing not to be a part of the problem, but instead to allow ourselves to be Guided by a Higher Force, our greater Source and let God tell us how to react instead of deciding for ourselves. It is much weaker to lash back instinctively than to take the higher ground and let God choose for us how we should be or what we should do in any given situation.

Then when things are quieter and calmer and we are feeling stronger we can begin our practice of kindness and compassion. Maybe not at first with the person we feel attacked by, but begin simpler. Think kind thoughts of others that we are more peaceful with. We can call our parents and say, “I love you.” for no apparent reason.

We can get down on the floor and play with our children and let our voices join in joyous laughter. We can hug our spouse or partner and say, “I am grateful for you.” We can call our friend and tell them, “I’m so glad you are in my life.” To our co-worker, we can say, “It’s really great working with you.” For ourselves we can choose, “I am happy and so blessed.”

If we practice small gestures and simple, honest words and acts of kindness when our life is relatively calm, we can strengthen that muscle in us that is designed to be an instrument of peace in the world. Smile more often for no reason. Laugh out loud at the Murphy’s Laws of life. Laughing at ourselves and with others is a powerful tool for seeing the world from a less serious and doom clouded vision. And remember to be kind.

UNWRAPPING TRUTH

“What God created limitless is free.”  ACIM

“I will offer gifts of forgiveness, peace and joy to everyone today.”

If we put a gift into a box, even if we wrap it beautifully and tie it with a colorful bow, it has no meaning unless we give it to someone.  And then it has little meaning unless they unwrap it, see it and use it.  This is how we set it free from its limiting containment in a box.

So it is with our thoughts. Even if we know in our minds that we are God’s creations and His Holy Children, but don’t live that way, then we and all others cannot receive the gift of what we know deep inside of us, that God’s Love is real and all else is an illusion.

The gift of our true understanding cannot shine through when it is wrapped in doubt and fear and tied with ribbons of darkness and worry, no matter how colorfully or poetically we describe them.

We can pray for peace and health and happiness, safety and abundance for the world, but if we speak and think and act without peace or kindness, the gift of our prayers cannot be seen or used. As with any gift, it is only useful when we unwrap it. We need to let our light shine through so our judgments and attacks thoughts and victim thinking can be lifted from our minds and transformed and shared as gifts of Love and Joy for all. And we need to do this with God as our Guide.

In loving silence God continues unceasingly to gift us with His Truth.  Each moment is a Holy Instant and a miracle of joining with God and each other just waiting to be unwrapped.

“Let every voice but God’s be still in me.”  ACIM

TWO WORLDS

“Let me remember what my purpose is today.” ACIM

“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 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 and quiet spirit where God’s Voice 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.

A GENTLE WALK IN PEACE

“The peace of God is shining in me now.” A Course In Miracles

“I will leave fear behind today and walk in gentle peace.”

Leaving fear behind is a journey and takes patience and decision. We can practice this daily and moment by moment, by simply looking straight at what disturbs our peace, and with a gentle, knowing smile, understand that the Universe has something better in mind for us than this.

May we walk gently and in peace this day knowing that we are blessed and we can bless with our tiny willingness to forgive all things and be at peace.

WHY NOT ME?

“All good things are mine, because God intended them for me.” A Course In Miracles

 “To all good things, I say, “Why not me?”

How often have we heard or asked the question, Why me?   Usually in reference to drama or illness or pain of some sort. What if, for this new year, we turned that question and the answer around and filled our minds and hearts with loving expectations instead of possible bad news.

It would look something like this:

Healthy relationships filled with love and laughter.
WHY NOT ME?

Communication in which understanding is sought and quickly found.
WHY NOT ME?

The perfect job doing just what I love.
WHY NOT ME?

Time and space for myself whenever I need it.
WHY NOT ME?

Having and being a spouse/partner who forgives our mistakes and values our strengths.
WHY NOT ME?

A positive loving, giving, serving experience here in the world.
WHY NOT ME?

All my questions answered by a loving Source that knows me perfectly.
WHY NOT ME?

Health and well being for my body, my spirit, my emotions.
WHY NOT ME?

Only good news in the world every single day.
WHY NOT ME?

Safety and protection for me and my loved ones.
WHY NOT ME?

Enough of everything for me, for mine and for all the world.
WHY NOT ME?

An experience where forgiveness and kindness, compassion and empathy are the order of the day.
WHY NOT ME?

An open mind and an open heart willing to allow the Divine Universe to govern my life.
WHY NOT ME?

A world of harmony and balance in nature and in the heart of everyone.
WHY NOT ME?

Every day filled with miracles of grace and beauty and wonder.
WHY NOT ME?

Peace and Love and Joy in the world now, beginning with me.
WHY NOT ME?

I CHANGE MY MIND

 “We cannot change the world. 
We can only change our mind about the world.” 
A Course In Miracles

“I will have the courage to change my mind today.”

Many of us speak of changing our mind as something negative. We call it flip flopping. We call it wishy washy. We call it weak.  We couldn’t be more mistaken.

To change our mind is to allow sanity to replace insanity. 
To change our mind is to let go of stubborn misperceptions.
To change our mind is to allow growth.
To change our mind is to let healing happen.

We cannot grow unless we are willing to change our mind.

The only way to change the world
Is to change our mind about the world.

That is powerful.

There is great courage and strength in the willingness to recognize we have been mistaken and then to change our mind. And God will help us do it.

TWO PATHS

“Who could fear to look upon such lovely holiness?” 
A Course In Miracles

 “I will walk the path of calm acceptance.”

There are really only two paths.

The first path, the one most commonly traveled, is outside of us and causes us to move away from our inner truth. The second path and the one many of us are not aware of though we often sense that something is missing, is the path of calm acceptance which lives inside of us. On the path of calm acceptance we need only ask one question of the Universe,

“Which way?” 

Upon asking this quiet question, our potential expands to encompass all possibilities, for we are now flexible, open and responsive. In being flexible, open and responsive to the love and the miracles around us, we gift ourselves with a beautiful experience

I see you on a path of golden light.
You are illuminated and you illuminate.
Your way is smoothed by sharing gentle kindness.

You are blessed by the inner peace of true compassion and the knowing that your power lies in you and not in someone else. Your natural gift of gratitude shines like a beacon in the world. Your quick and easy laughter and your trust in something higher paves the way for your sisters and your brothers to experience their own confidence and joy. All who know you thank you for your generosity of spirit, and your willingness to see the best in everyone.

And as you see the best in others so now are you able to
see your own true self mirrored there, happy whole and healed.

CELEBRATING LIFE!

“I place my trust in the strength of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will count my blessings today.”

In this new year let’s make resolutions to:

Smile more
Laugh out loud
Love ourselves.
Value Life.
Value our brothers’ and sisters’ lives.
See God’s Love and Light in everyone.

Let’s let joy be free as we forgive and surrender everything that disturbs our peace. Let’s celebrate with our family and friends. Let’s count our blessings, not our grievances. Let’s go outside and play in the snow or dance in the rain. Let’s bless the sun that shines upon our world today and even the clouds that hide the sun for a moment or two. Let’s allow Love to govern our lives and every relationship.

Let’s place our trust, not in the world, but in God. So we really have only one resolution – to be happy.  And now we are living God’s will for us.

THE HUMAN CONDITION AND THE BLESSINGS JOURNAL

“… you think you have a thousand choices when there is really only one to make.” “God did not make a meaningless world.” “Choose Again.” A Course In Miracles

I will make the choice for God today.

Human conditions are not God’s choice for us nor is He in a position to stop us from our insanity. But He did create us Holy and Whole so that we, even in our human form, are capable of making choices from that perfect place from which we were created. And we can choose a better way, a higher thought, whenever we want. And that is where our power lies.

For every fear thought, there is a loving thought nearby; for every cloud, a golden lining. This Christmas season and New Year begin a Blessings Journal. Instead of focusing upon all that is wrong in your life, spend some time each evening before you go to bed and look quietly upon your day. Where you see unsightly weeds of pain and sadness, look instead for light and glorious blooms on the Christmas cactus. Let the flowers symbolize for you, all the beautiful moments and everyone for which you can be grateful.

Let everything you have experienced and everyone you have encountered be a teaching tool for peace; an opportunity for forgiveness. Write down what you have learned. And then write down each loving gift; the ones that are clear and the ones you may have overlooked. The ones that are huge and the ones that are barely visible. Pay attention to your life as you go about your day.  Let this exercise strengthen you and help you remember that even in the weed infested moments of insanity, there are blossoms of joyous thinking trying to break free.

Search carefully for those moments you can put into your blessings journal. And then just before you fall asleep say, “Thank you, God. Thank you for all that I have learned. Thank you for my life. Thank you for showing me this world through Your Eyes.  And thank you for using me as a healing channel for peace everywhere and at all times. ” 

And now your path is clear for it is strewn with the flowers of Holy, Healing Love.  And you will know that YOU are the greatest blessing in your life.

And remember…

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

STILLNESS IS GOD’S GIFT

“They stand in shining silence …”
… who accepts God’s gifts can never suffer.” 
 A Course In Miracles

“I will be still and accept God’s gifts today.”

Let us rest our mind a moment and think nothing. 

It is in thinking nothing that we find everything.  Stillness is calm and gentle. It is ever present and always ready and waiting to lighten the heavy heart and calm the racing mind. Stillness is real and palpable and lives and breathes within us. Stillness lifts our spirits and heals our thoughts and gently reminds us that we belong to it and it to us.

Stillness is God’s voice quietly reminding us that He will fill our hearts with His love as soon as we surrender our grievances to Him and allow Him entry through the doorway of our minds and hearts.

Stillness is peace. 
It is our guiding star.

It is beautiful. 
It is practical.

It is the place where we are perfect and where perfection only means happiness and joy. Let’s open to this gift so we can use it lovingly every moment of every day throughout the year. And then let’s share it with everyone we encounter. God’s gift of stillness is the one gift that truly keeps on giving. 

It’s called re-gifting.

EVERY KIND THOUGHT

“God’s grace is given me.  I claim it now.” A Course In Miracles

“I will be kind to everyone today.”

Everywhere we look, are opportunities for random acts of kindness, both small and large. It can be as tiny as a smile for a stranger or as large as a monthly gift to a child in a third world country. It can be calling our mother or standing in front of Congress for a cause that we believe in. It can be rescuing a puppy or traveling to another country to save the whales. It can be blessing the person who cuts us off in traffic or going on TV to talk about preserving the rain forests.

Whether large or small, our random acts of kindness hold equal power in God’s eyes for the healing of our hearts and the healing of the world.  They originate from His Love and then they share His Love with others.

Every kind thought and act opens our hearts and gets us out of our fear thinking and into our love thinking. In kindness we align with our true presence, our true purpose and with our Child of God essence. It is not so much the act or the thought, as the Love behind it that will make the world a better place. 

Today let’s spread kindness and get a glimpse of Heaven.

ONE WORLD; ONE KEY

“I cannot see two worlds.” 
“Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” 
A Course In Miracles

“I will forgive all things today.”

“Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” Turn the key and open the door to freedom. As we crack the door of fear’s dark place through our forgiving thoughts, God’s Holy Light bursts in. It flows like sunlight’s golden rays and spreads a comforting warmth of reassurance and relief through every mind and heart. Here we know with quiet certainty that God is alive and well and we can rest in Him understanding with perfect clarity that His power of Love heals all things and everyone.

Fear and Love cannot inhabit the same space. Where light shines, darkness disappears. Where there is love, fear cannot be found. Where there is gratitude and joy, doubt and confusion disappear. There are not two worlds, but only one. And this one belongs to God. Let not our dark fear thoughts block His Light for He awaits us and our willingness to remember who we really are. God can only help us if we invite Him in.

The choice of where to live and Whom to follow and to trust is ours.

A CHRISTMAS STORY

“The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within …” A Course In Miracles

PEACE ON EARTH

There was a small star in a black sea of sky whose light was very dim. Dark thoughts, heavy sadness, and crushing guilt from earth made it an overwhelming challenge for the little star to keeps its light alive. It continued to try valiantly, but the effort was exhausting.

One night just before its fading glow was extinguished for good, the star heard a sound. It listened closely and it heard it again. Sweet and gentle, and ever so lovely, the sound penetrated the heavy mist of fear that filled the world. It was the voices of a small boy and girl singing a lovely little hymn to each other in a small and dingy room with ice crystals clinging to the inside walls. The brother and sister had curled themselves up together in a thin and threadbare blanket. They were home alone. Home was a small apartment with no heat, but they didn’t seem to notice as their voices rose in harmony with one another. If anyone would have seen them, they would have been amazed by their shining eyes and happy smiles.

They had nothing in the worlds’ terms, but in their eyes they had everything. They had each other.

The star focused on the innocence and love that flowed from the hearts and into the song of these two children. And as it did so, its dim light began to brighten. Then softly and from a distance, the star heard more voices joining these and then more and more. Each voice belonged to a child. The star continued to focus only on the voices until it could hear nothing, but children singing in different languages, in different keys with different melodies that somehow blended and harmonized with each other and with the two original children in the cold apartment. The love that circled the world from the hearts of the children gave power and strength to the star until its light shone clear and filled the sky. Soon the dark sea of night disappeared into the light. The light from one small star.

You are the star. 
You are the children.
You are the song. 

You are the light. 
You are the innocence. 
You are the love.

Listen to your heart, focus on your song, see only your light and you will realize

Peace On Earth

Have a blessed Christmas, everyone!

TREE OF TRUTH

“When truth has come it harbors in its wings the gift of perfect constancy, and love which does not falter in the face of pain, but looks beyond it, steadily and sure. Here is the gift of healing …” A Course In Miracles

Go inside your mind and see a tree, glorious and tall, its branches raised majestically, its trunk spanning the world. This tree has no leaves and yet it is full and beautifully abundant with not a bare spot to be seen. It cannot perish or change its hues which already are all the colors of the Universe.  Nor can what grows upon it ever be diminished or forgotten.

Go closer and lean your weight against it. Rest in its shade. Look up into its branches and see what fills them.  Do you recognize its fruit?  They are all the miracles, large and small, that belong to you.  See them fastened to the tree like lovely ornaments polished to a perfect sheen.

Every loving thought you’ve ever had is hanging there, blessed and saved for all eternity. There are your miracles of kind acts preserved for you in holy purity. The branches of the tree bear all the memories of each time your heart was opened to another, as are all the times your eyes have seen the truth of someone else; the innocence within their soul. As well, your gentleness and grace and every tear you’ve wiped from someone’s face or shed in loving sympathy for them. Every child you’ve ever held and every hand you’ve ever clasped as you helped a brother or a sister up and back upon their path. Every time you have forgiven yourself or someone else is a light upon the tree. Each time you trusted God instead of fear is a gift that He holds dear and keeps in place for you within the branches of this tree.

Every time you celebrated life instead of death is suspended there. Also every dark and painful moment you chose another way, opening your mind to embrace the holy healing of happy joy and laughter. Every prayer you’ve ever prayed where you put God’s will ahead of yours and every time that you grew still on His behalf are all firmly on the tree.

No matter what mistakes you make they are nothing in the face of all your miracles held fast upon God’s Tree of Truth where they will stay forever, shining their holy, healing light upon the earth. These words cannot convey how precious are your miracles that God has saved for you.  And when the time should come that you look back upon your life, be sure that these and only these are all that you and He will see.

SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

“The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within …” A Course In Miracles 

We are the awe we feel on a star-filled night.
We are the beauty of a snow-filled woods.

We are the heart of a lovely song.
We are the picture in the frame;
The pinnacle of every mountain that we’ve climbed.
We are the joy in simple pleasures that we share.

We are weightless.
We are timeless.

We are a gift to the world and the world is a gift to us.
We are a ribbon of light that shines through darkness.

We are peace eternal and unchanging.
We are not the things of the world, 
But the spirit that runs it.

We are the awe
We are the beauty
We are the heart
We are the picture
We are the pinacle
We are the joy

Every moment of each day
May you find Christmas
Alive and well inside your heart.

“The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness.”

SHINING STAR OF HEALED THOUGHTS

… the veil that seems so dark and heavy … Let it be lifted! For every grievance is a block to sight, and as it lifts you see the Children of God where they have always been. “A Course In Miracles

“I will be a shining star of healed thoughts today.”

Let us lift up to God all that we do not want.
Sad thoughts
Extreme conditions
Violence
Injustice
Righteous defenses (our own and others)
Scarcity
Separateness and loneliness
Insane beliefs (our own and others)
War (internal and external)
Judgments
Sickness

Lets pat all of this into a tight ball and stuff it into a garbage bag and fling the bag into a hot air balloon. And as we watch our pain and fear thoughts lift up and float away, we will envision the balloon of dark energy transformed into light filled star of hope and healing for everyone.  

We are now designers of miracles and the world is a brand new place.  Divine energy will fill the space where fear once blocked our way and we will remember the truth. God is our only Ruler; His laws our saving grace.

And if we fall back into our old thinking, we can do this exercise again. And then again and once again. Until the day when the balloon of pain and suffering is finally gone forever.  And we are filled with light and nothing else remains in our minds, our hearts, our lives, our world but peace and love and joy.

THE LIGHT OF HEALING PEACE

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

“I will welcome the healing light of peace today.”

If we keep a forgiving place inside our mind where it is welcome, peace will always find us. It is a constant thread of light that is woven through the fabric of each moment. Even when the world is at its darkest the light of peace is there, sometimes barely noticed, other times completely hidden by a fog of fear and worry. And yet there is no fog so thick, no night so dark that can keep our peace from us.

Miracles of forgiving love are imbedded in each peaceful thought transforming pain to joy. Peace is in the smile that shines through eyes of kindness. It’s in the laughter among friends. It comforts by a helping hand and offers itself in moments of compassion. It rests on tolerance and patience and brings with it opportunities for looking on the bright side. It lifts the weight of judgment and attack thoughts from our minds, freeing us to fly.

Peace radiates its warmth like sunshine on a quiet pond and dances lightly like dragonflies among the hostas. It is a promise always kept; a knowing deep inside us, all is well. When peace is present nothing else exists. It is our ever true and changeless gift from God.

May you walk in peace today knowing you are blessing the world with your light.

Dedicated to Sis Pat and Whit Rusk. My Soul Sister and her husband. God be with you on your healing journey.

THE ALTAR OF PEACE

“For perfect effectiveness the Atonement belongs at the center of the inner altar, where it undoes the separation and restores the wholeness of the mind. The children of God are entitled to the perfect comfort that comes from perfect trust. The Atonement is the only gift that is worthy of being offered at the altar of God, because of the value of the altar itself.” A Course In Miracles

“I will kneel at my inner Altar and place my trust in God today knowing Atonement means complete forgiveness, total healing and perfect oneness.”

As we kneel before the Altar of Peace, Love encircles us like a ring of light protecting us from all that seems to want to harm us. We cannot be but safe here when we understand our safety is governed by God’s laws not ego’s. And now we fall to our knees before the Altar of Peace that stands like a beacon of hope before us and assures us we are entitled to miracles and healing and Oneness.

The altar isn’t made of wood or metal or anything physical. Instead it is Light and Love and comes from within us and shines outward. We can bow our heads or not, lift our faces upward or close our eyes and kneel or not and still see this Altar of Peace. We can just be where we are and as we are for the Altar of Peace is seen not through our bodies’ eyes, but through our inner eye which is always open and ready to see the truth. The truth is that God Is, and nothing else exists.

Our smile transforms our faces as joy fills us and lifts us reminding us of Who and What we are. We are God’s Creations, not in body form, but in spirit which has no form. In God’s image not in ours. And now we can see that we are Spirit Creations having a human experience and not the other way around.

As our Spirit Love governs our existence and our human experience and gains strength and power through practice our experience is transformed from one of fear and victimhood to one of forgiveness and love through acts and words of kindness and compassion. Kindness and compassion for ourselves as well as for all others in our lives.

Instead of hearing and reacting to sadness and anger and fear in ourselves and others by responding in kind, we understand that fear and anger and sadness are simply calls for love and cries for help. As we kneel at the Altar of Peace, we are shown that we as humans are asking for and desperately wanting help to see ourselves as God sees us, but not sure how to make that happen.  

The only way to make it happen is to let it go. Lift it all up to God, and simply let it go. “I place the past, the present and the future in the hands of God.” And now the Altar of God within us shines forth as a stream of glorious and never ending Light and we see nothing else.
