LET’S GIVE UP THE FIGHT

“ For you must be as God created you. Truth does not fight against illusions, nor do illusions fight against the truth. Illusions battle only with themselves. Being fragmented, they fragment. But truth is indivisible, and far beyond their [illusion’s] little reach. You will remember what you know when you have learned you cannot be in conflict. One illusion about yourself can battle with another, yet the war of two illusions is a state where nothing happens. There is no victor and there is no victory. And truth stands radiant, apart from conflict, untouched and quiet in the peace of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will gladly wave the white flag of absolute surrender today; surrendering to God.”

If we think we have to stand apart from God and fight for our protection and our rights, we need to take a quiet moment and stand back and recognize that that thinking is what keeps our world at war; war inside our families, inside our communities, inside our country and in the world. And inside each one of us.

We don’t need to be at war with each other. We’ve already tried that and look at our world. Clearly that doesn’t work. What we need is to learn a better way.

Trying to solve the world’s problems at the level of the world is impossible. At the level of the world we are blinded by our own fears and anger and sadness and limited by our opinions, misperceptions and misunderstandings and past experiences. Instead we need to ask for help to rise above the fray and ask God for a better way. 

“On our own we can do nothing, but in God are all our problems solved.” ACIM

Every time we attack another, no matter how “right” and “righteous” we feel, we are allowing ourselves to be part of the problem and have let the solution fade from our sight. And now we’re stuck in the same old, archaic thinking that has kept this world in chaos since the beginning of time.

*****

Let us pray for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness and safety we want for everyone on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

WE NEED A BETTER WAY

“God wills you better.” A Course In Miracles

 “You have never given any problem to God He has not solved for you, nor will you ever do so. You have never tried to solve anything yourself and been successful. Is it not time you brought these facts together and made sense of them.” A Course In Miracles

How can we doubt we need another way? A way that does not put up barriers to healing, but opens our minds and hearts to God’s Healing. We can’t fix our relationships, the country or the world with our judgmental and righteous thinking. When we try, we block God’s Love from flowing through us and make enemies of our brothers and sisters. We need to be loving channels for Him, one mind and heart at a time. Then and only then are we part of the solution. 

“My part is essential to God’s Plan for salvation.” A Course In Miracles

Instead of blocking God by standing strong in our own limiting convictions for more fighting and more defensiveness, we need to bow our heads, drop to our knees and confess, “I don’t know how to fix this God, but You do.”

And then let it go. Let our anger go. Let our lack of trust in ourselves and our brothers and sisters go. Let go of our need to have revenge and thinking vengeance and fighting back is the answer. And let go of the thought that God is allowing the insanity of the world.

God can’t stop what we have chosen. God didn’t give us free will, He designed us with free will. Free will is imbedded into our Being by God and cannot be overridden by Him or anyone. His intention was that our will be His Will. He can’t change His own will. If we choose another will than His, He can’t stop us, but if we choose our natural State of Being by choosing His will for us which is Love, then and only then can He help us. Now we know, the better way is God’s Way.

*****

Let us pray for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness and safety we want for everyone on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

FORGIVENESS MAKES MIRACLES

“Accept the miracle… of healing, and it will go forth because of what it is. It is its nature to extend itself the instant it is born. And it is born the instant it is offered and received.” A Course In Miracles

“I will walk in the light of my own forgiveness today and see miracles of healing.”

We don’t have to fix the world and the calamity and chaos we see out there, but we can pray for healing and peace and forgiveness for the greater world as we practice kindness and forgiveness within our own world. Forgiveness is energy and it lives in us, our gift from God. He instilled it in us for our use in keeping our lives peaceful and for healing our experiences along with our relationships. When we forgive others and ourselves, we open our minds and hearts for another, better way of being. This better way sends ripples of loving energy from us to others and through others to more others. These ripples are miracles.

Forgiveness is contagious as laughter is contagious as joy is contagious as kindness is contagious and as peace is contagious. Instead of spreading anger and disease and fear, let us spread Love and Peace and Joy through small acts and thoughts and words of forgiveness and kindness. Let us be kind to ourselves and see that kindness manifest into healing in our lives. Sometimes all we can do for someone else is pray for peace for them. And if that’s the best we can do, then that is what we must do. And that best is far greater than we know for it puts us on the path as miracle workers for God.

Healing prayers for everyone 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.

Prayers for all those who may be experiencing extreme weather conditions, fires or floods anywhere in this world.  Our loving thoughts are with you. May God keep you safe and transform the extremes into harmony and balance. 

Let us also pray for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness and safety we want for everyone on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

THE PRICE OF PEACE

“I want the peace of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will gladly pay the price of peace.”

We often speak about the price of peace

and

We talk of things like sacrifice and suffering,

Of fighting for our rights and bending others to our ways.

Of making everyone see God and the world as we do.

Of protecting ourselves without first asking God for help.

We need to be right even at the sacrifice of happiness.

We truly believe that peace will come from this.

But in God’s eyes what is the price of peace?

 No price at all. It’s free In every sense.

 Peace is a choice that when made With a kind heart and open mind Flows gently through our being.

It judges no one.

It fights for nothing.

It is the core of our being

And

Simply is …

It is fathered by Forgiveness And mothered by Compassion.

It’s siblings, Kindness, Sharing, Tolerance and Joy Will one day govern all hearts and

Heal the world through Love.

NEW DAY, NEW LIFE, 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!

I’M READY, AREN’T YOU?

“The journey that we undertake together is the exchange of dark for light, of ignorance for understanding.” A Course In Miracles

“I will make room in my heart for everyone and everything today.”

A snowflake lightly kisses the tip of a pine tree needle. And the tree, tall and majestic and ever green smiles in response as it shares its branches and its snowflake with a bird. A bright red cardinal lands on the tree and sips the melted flake and his thirst is quenched. The cardinal flies to the feeder that humans have kept full of his favorite seeds. There he communes with the goldfinches and the chickadees. It’s clear the birds know each other. They show no fear or concern and often sit together on their perches at the feeder for a moment before they take their food and flit off. And well they should be acquainted as they have gathered together around this feeder many times and in all seasons. They are clearly unconcerned about their differences or about sharing their food for they know instinctively that the world belongs to them all. And they know their humans as well. Why else would they fly to the window and flap their wings to remind them that the seed is low? Communication is key.

“Communication ends separation.” A Course In Miracles.

Communication is not some of God’s Children deciding for us all. It is being still and letting God decide for everyone.

The cat sits safely in the window, protected from its own nature as it is entertained by the birds. Its whiskers twitch, its nose sniffs, its head turns to follow the flitting of the birds. Alert and happy to be a part of a greater world. Let’s sit in God’s window and let Him protect us from our baser nature so we can be open to His Grace. Now are we able to be a part of a Greater World.

“The teachers of God have trust in the world, because they have learned it is not governed by the laws the world made up. It is governed by a power that is in them but not of them. It is this power that keeps all things safe. It is through this power that the teachers of God look on a forgiven world.” A Course In Miracles

Humans, animals and plants, all living together in harmony. It’s the world at its best. Nature at work in the most Divine way possible. Love flows uncomplicated and natural. It’s not even recognized as love. It only IS. No questions. No judgments. Accepted and allowed. And it all works perfectly. Like a holy puzzle where each piece is pre-set and fits together in a way that we are incapable of conceiving. If we want the world to survive we must first stop trying to make it work through the laws of insanity and separation and divisiveness. We must lay down our defenses and trust in the Truth of Who we are.

We humans could take lessons from nature. The world would be a beautiful place if we fed each other the way we feed the birds and our pets and our plants accepting each other as we are. Making room for everyone. For are we not all God’s Creations? Is this not God’s world? Are we not all entitled to miracles and a beautiful life? God would never deny us the happiness we are entitled to. So who are we to deny it to each other?

“To give and to receive are one.” A Course In Miracles

BE STILL AND TRUST

“God is the strength in which I trust.” A Course In Miracles

“I will believe in possibilities today.”

In all things live possibilities and
opportunities beyond our wildest dreams. They are not always scientific. They
cannot always be seen with the human eye or heard or touched by the human hand.
But with an open mind and heart, they can be felt and somehow known by
something deep inside us. It just takes a little trust.

Trust first in the possibility for your own
great happiness and a Love that transcends this world.  Trust that you
have been gifted with many windows of opportunity to be a messenger of peace
and a receiver of great abundance. And if that window seems a bit dingy at
times, then silence the doubts and take a soft cloth and the Windex of Truth
and polish it until it glistens and the Light that is you shines clearly
through.

Windows of opportunity live quietly inside us.
All we need do to access them is to watch for them and then when we get a tiny
glimpse, a glimmer of light, a whisper of feeling, look deeper. For what may
seem like a challenge is most likely an opportunity for something greater if we
are just willing to break the glass and go through it to the great
beyond. 

Facing fear and then moving through it takes
trust.  Trust in God.  With trust, what seems limited or even
hopeless will take on a whole new meaning.

“This is a
time of silence and of trust.” A Course In Miracles

Trust in your Holiness. It is REAL.

Healing prayers for
everyone in the places where violence has senselessly taken precious loved
ones. Prayers for all the missing children.  May God know where they are

anywhere in this world.  Our loving thoughts are with you. May God keep
you safe and transform the extremes into harmony and balance.

ONE KEY; ONE DOOR

“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.

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.

BE IN THE NOW

”Into God’s Presence would I enter now.” A Course In Miracles

Be in the Now. 

Live in the Now. 

Dance and sing joyfully Now. 

Rejoice and celebrate Now.

Let your laughter ring out Now. 

And let all else go.

Not a moment ago, or a moment from now, but NOW. And then NOW and NOW again.  Practice this with gentle breathing and a soft smile, a quiet laugh. Repeat “God is the Love with which I experience this moment.” And watch your LIFE begin.

If you feel your peace disturbed by someone or something outside of you, quietly understand that you are simply judging someone or something apart from God.  Then simply grow still and ask for help to be released from this disturbance and let harmony and balance fill you.

Ask for guidance as to how to remove yourself from this place that challenges you and listen quietly for the answers. Watch carefully for miracles of love and healing to lead you on a new path which takes you gently away from fear and into Light.  And trust that in God, all is well.  All is well NOW.

TIME’S INTENDED PURPOSE

“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 use time for its intended purpose today, and nothing else.”

Time has a purpose. And that purpose is healing. Healing of our thinking which extends into the healing of our experiences. 

What if our thoughts could calm tornadoes and render hurricanes harmless?  What if our thoughts could heal bodies, viruses and end wars? What if our thoughts could create glorious gardens and harmonize and balance all of nature? Would we not want to change our thinking to bring holiness and healing to the world?

Imagine walking through dark alleys in a major city without fear?  Imagine knowing that you and your children are and will always be healthy, safe and strong? Imagine plenty of everything for everyone with no feelings of poverty and scarcity?  Imagine experiencing kind and loving relationships with all your family and your co-workers and imagine that every stranger has become a friend? Imagine always seeing yourself as valuable and worthy and beautiful.

What if instead of needing to be right, we ask ourselves, “What can I do to bring you happiness today?”  What if sharing was our first instinct instead of withholding? What if our first question to everyone in need was, “How can I help?” And then what if all fear and need disappeared into ALL IS WELL.

Feel the heavy mantle of burden and of fear and anxiety lifted from our shoulders and our minds by simply choosing something better for ourselves and everyone. What if we stopped fighting truth and denying joy?  Now our hearts are light. Now our feelings and experiences are filled with peace. Now we want to dance and laugh and share our happiness with everyone – all the time. And what if all it took to make this happen was to change our minds about how we see ourselves and others and the world?

So let’s calm down. Let’s quiet our thoughts, breathe deeper and more slowly and listen to God’s Thinking. What may seem impossible to us is nothing at all to Him.  It can happen.  It will happen.  God’s children cannot live in darkness and fear and violence and pain forever.  For they, after all, are God’s children, His Holy Creations.  At some point, we will, collectively, choose a better way.  Just give it time.

RESOLUTION – HAPPINESS!

“God’s will for me is perfect happiness.” 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 even if it’s virtually. 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.

“I share God’s will for me for happiness and I accept it as my function now.” A Course In Miracles

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.

LEAVING FEAR BEHIND

“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, determination and perseverance. 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. Let us be an instrument of calm today, a channel for peace. We can’t heal the insanity, but we can give it to the One Who can.

Let God’s Miracles bring a calm and quiet healing upon the earth.

SILENT SONG; SECRET DANCE

“For no one hears the song of Heaven and
remains without a voice that adds …
its power to the song” A Course In Miracles

“I offer to the world today a smile, a touch, a wink, a laugh, a wave.”

Strike a chord in your brother
And find the hidden melody in you.

There is a song without lyrics
That the heart sings loud and clear.

It is heard with the inner ear
And shared through loving thoughts.

There is no need to carry a tune.
There is no instrument to learn.

And with it comes a secret dance choreographed by love.

A smile. A touch. A wink. A laugh. A wave.

A hand shake.
A warm hug 

A sign of peace. 
Two thumbs up.
A bowed head.

A kind thought.

A song sung in silence
Is the most powerful sound there is.

A dance danced in secret 
Can bring a smile to every face.

WE ARE A GIFT

 “The Thought God holds of you is like a star, unchangeable in an eternal sky.  So high in Heaven is it set that those outside of Heaven know not it is there.  Yet still and white and lovely will it shine through all eternity. There was no time it was not there; no instant when its light grew dimmer or less perfect ever was.” 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.

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 a 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.

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.

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!

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.

UNWRAPPING THE TRUTH

“What God created limitless is free.”  ACIM

“I will offer gifts of forgiveness, peace and joy, health and happiness 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 attack 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
