IT’S TIME

“This is the time of hope for countless millions.” A Course In Miracles

“In most instances, our thoughts are so chaotic and vulnerable to events that we go through the day looking at everyone through a swirling stupor that blocks our intuition of who each person is at heart. Yet it is seeing the deep and often unspoken urges of the heart that makes us happy.” Hugh Prather

Millions and more are ready. Feel the restless shuffling of spirits as millions prepare to break loose from ties that chafe and bind them to unwanted thinking.

Violence and Attack, be gone from every heart! Fear and Victimhood, be banished from our minds! Judgment and Separation Thoughts, disappear into the past! It’s time for a new way of living, of being, of thinking, of seeing. It’s time for Love and Light to wash away all bad news and open the world to good news today. It’s time to pray for a Holy Healing for a world that is bone weary of living in fear and darkness. It’s time to be Free!

See the dissatisfaction on multitudes of faces as God’s children sense there must be more. Watch the doubtful expressions as so many begin to question, “Why am I here again?”

It’s a movement; a holy movement toward another way of seeing. Another way of thinking. Another way of being. And we’re right in the midst of it. As questioners. As teachers. As leaders and as followers. As participants of a brave new world. A world that sees forgiveness as the path to peace. Kindness as the philosophy that frees. Stillness and trust in God as the only way to heal all the dark and crazy thinking from all minds.

Before us is the path, well lit and inviting. An open invitation. We place one foot cautiously upon it, then taking God’s hand, we place the other as well. And we’re off. It feels right. Gentle winds of healing fan us. Smiles of quiet peace light our faces. Our hearts are calm and confident. Our thoughts are the ones God gives us. Joyous laughter fills our being and flows through us filling the air with happy sounds.

Relief lifts the weight of the world from us. “What took us so long?” we wonder. We know with absolute certainty that it’s time. It’s our time. It’s the world’s time. It’s God’s time. It’s the time for peace for all.

We are ready. We are able. And so we pluck our fruits from the tree of Truth. Love. Peace. Joy. Oneness. They are ours. They manifest in our lives as happiness, health, safety, abundance. They are ours. Always have been. But now we know it. No longer do we hide ourselves in uncertainty and fear and doubt. It’s as plain as the nose on our faces. As clear as the light in our eyes. As certain as the joy in our hearts. It’s time for a brand new world. And we have been recruited to be among its leaders.

We lead, not by overpowering wills, which never works, but by setting quiet examples of kindness, helpfulness and positivity.

Follow that light! It’s God leading the way.

Celebration is the order of the day. For fear is gone and only Holy, Healing Love remains. God’s prodigal children have come home.

SUPER POWERS

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

“I will recognize my true power today.”

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

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

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

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

LET US PRAY

“I will step back and let God lead the way. For I would walk along the road to God.” A Course In Miracles

At time like these, all we can do is pray.  And ask for help.

Let the power of God come into this moment and this day and show us what to do and think, what to say and to whom.  

Let our prayer be, Help me, God.  Help all your children. Help me to be helpful as well. And then let us be still and listen.

All the answers are in God and nowhere else.

HAVE WE NOT WONDERED …?

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

I will recognize my perfection today.”

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

We are not our fears.

We are not our insecurities.

We are not our bodies.

And no matter how much it may seem like it, we are not our behavior.

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

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

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

If so, no wonder we suffer pain and anxiety and sickness. No wonder there is war and senseless violence. We can’t hide our Glorious Being behind a mist of fear and doubt and be at peace. We can’t shove a loving and Holy Creation into a small box of insane thinking and not be extremely uncomfortable and frustrated. In extreme cases even justified in demonic destruction.

It would be like caging a tiger or binding the wings of an eagle. It would be like calling a majestic mountain a hill and seeing the ocean as a puddle. 

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

The problem is not our lives, our jobs, our bodies our relationships or our government. The problem is how we see ourselves in relation to these things. If we see ourselves as God sees us, holy and innocent and perfect and free, our jobs and our relationships and our lives will reflect that perfection. Nothing needs to change except our minds, our thinking, and our beliefs. It doesn’t mean our lives, our relationships, our bodies and our jobs won’t change if they are meant to.  It only means that our minds must change first for true and permanent transformation.

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

Let’s wonder no more.  Instead, let’s change our minds and see.

Healing prayers for everyone in the paths of hurricanes and in the places where violence has senselessly taken precious loved ones. Prayers for all the missing children.  May God know where they are and keep them safe.

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.

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

Healing prayers for everyone in the paths of hurricanes and in the places where violence has senselessly taken precious loved ones. Prayers for all the missing children.  May God know where they are and keep them safe.

LIVE IN YOUR LIGHT

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

“I will share my light with everyone today.”

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

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

NO HURRY NOW

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

“I will walk in timelessness today.” 

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

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

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

REST IN THE FOG

“My holiness envelops everything I see.”  
“There is nothing to fear.” A Course In Miracles

“I will not be afraid to rest in the beauty of the fog.”

When life is too painful for whatever reason
And your mind and heart feel confused and
A fog settles over you,
Think of this …

There is beauty in the fog
As it softly enfolds the world
In its hazy dampness.
There is beauty in the fog,
As it lets you rest in its muted
And muffling embrace.

As you rest in fog’s embrace 
Feel yourself letting go and letting God.
And recognize that you are participating 
In true forgiveness. 

And then when the sharpness and light
Of the world come into focus once again,
You will find yourself feeling stronger for
Having allowed yourself a time of rest
As you surrender all things 

Into the beauty of the fog.

And God’s healing Love.

NEW DAY; NEW LIFE; NEW WORLD

“… think about the kind of day you want, and tell yourself there is a way in which this very day can happen just like that. Then try again to have the day you want.” 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 and holy relationships. It changes our world as we change our mind about the world. So now we can have expectations for beauty and joy and abundance beyond anything we could have imagined on our own. 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.

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!

“The thoughts we take to heart become the eyes with which we see. When the focus of our thoughts shifts from division to wholeness, the entire world shifts with it.” Hugh Prather, (spiritual teacher, counselor, writer)

May you walk in the new world of your own true Self today.

BLESSINGS MEDITATION

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

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

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

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

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

THE LAUGHING WORLD

“… and the world forgot to laugh.” A Course In Miracles

“I will listen for and join in the laughter today.”

God holds you gently in the night and shows you how to laugh at darkness in the day.

Wrapped only in the Loving Light of God, sip the sweetness of the gift of life. Lift your arms and leap with joy and laugh out loud. A world that laughs is not friends with fear. In fact it doesn’t even know that thought. Now are you aware that all you believed was true was just a crazy dream. See yourself awaken knowing that your peace, your happiness, your truth are still inside you as they’ve always been. Rejoice and lead the others into the light as well. Let your loving laughter be the only sound they hear. Turn and watch with wonder to see their pain-filled faces transform into smiles of happy joy, their shining eyes on you. Feel their hearts joined with yours in delightful celebration of a whole new way of seeing and of being.

The pain, the darkness and the fear are gone. And then you ask, what’s that lovely sound? Why of course. You recognize it now. It’s the world laughing.

And all because of you.

SIDE BY SIDE; HAND IN HAND

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

“I will claim my light today.”

We get caught up in how things look, having forgotten how things are. We think how they look and how they are, are one and the same. We need only open our heart and ask for help to see with our inner eye and listen with our inner ear if we really want to learn what is true and what is not.

Love is true. Fear is not.

Darkness cannot long survive in the Light of God’s Holy Truth. We are God’s Light created in Love holy, unchanging and eternal. By following our true path we are now teachers for God and examples for our brothers and sisters. Together we will be lifted to our highest place by our new trust and belief in ourselves and in each other. And through this trust we will join as one in seeing the truth of our own perfect light.

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

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

THINK ONLY LOVE

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

“I will think only loving thoughts today. I am healing the world with my happiness. I am lifting hearts with my joy. I am bringing smiles to all faces with my laughter. I am bringing peace to all minds with my forgiveness. I am ensuring the worlds’ healing with my kindness.”

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

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

And the miracles will flow.

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

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

EYES OF ONENESS

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

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

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

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

Only the form of our experience differs. In our hearts we are the same; capable of fear and capable of love. If we choose love for ourselves, we choose it for all. Then let’s remember that in choosing love for everyone, we will rise above the dark experiences that happen in the world. In the heart-home, where God’s Love lives, harm and hate can never enter.  Fear and sadness are no more.  Now where it looks dark and bleak, hopeless and painful, filled with challenges, floods and fires there will flow never ending miracles of joining, help and hope and love and joy and light. And we can say, “I don’t care how it looks, how it sounds or how it feels, God is in charge and all is well.” That’s called TRUST.

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

EACH TIME

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

“Let me be a light for peace today.”

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

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

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

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

And then,
“Amen.”

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

HAPPINESS

“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.

HOLY WELCOME MAT

“Peace and Love and Joy abide in you.” A Course In Miracles

“I will welcome everyone into my heart today.”

Let everyone be welcome here.

Let everyone be gifted by your radiant smile. 
Let everyone be freed by your forgiving heart. 
Let everyone be comforted by your kind and gentle thoughts.

Do what you must do in the world,
But let it all come from Love and be filled with the light
That radiates from God’s Holy Home inside your mind.

Lay out the Holy Welcome Mat and now you and
All who know you will live happily within the
Peace and Love and Joy that abides in you.

BANISH JUDGMENT; WELCOME HEALING

“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, 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.

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.

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!
