POLISH THE RUST AND MELT THE ICE

“Healing is God’s form of communication in this world, and the only one He accepts.” A Course In Miracles

Drip. Drop. Water dripping down a rusty drain pipe, slowly and relentlessly. It freezes at the other end as temperatures plummet. The water is our truth. The rusty drain pipe is our ancient mindset. The plummeting temperatures cause the frozen ice which represent our blocks to peace.

It’s time to clear the rust from our old thinking. It’s time to melt the ice from our hearts and open ourselves to the peace which belongs to us. An open mind and a willing heart allow miracles to work through our lives where before, we often saw only a world of fear and pain with little higher purpose and ourselves as powerless to change a thing. Rust can be deceiving as it hides the shining light of truth beneath. But it’s only on the surface and is harmless when we take a moment to look deeper. One way to clear the rust is to polish it with the oil of God’s truth and light. One way to melt an icy heart is to blow a warm and healing breeze across it. This we can do by choosing God instead of fear in all things.

With our minds and hearts open to a better way, we are able to understand that we are not victims at all, but powerful beings through which healing can happen if we allow our higher spirit place to be in charge of rusty drain pipes and frozen hearts. Our higher spirit is God’s Love within us where healing always happens whenever we are ready for it.

Opening our minds to a better way, God’s way, will help us to polish our rusty thoughts and melt our frozen thinking and turn our experiences around. This new year is a perfect time to choose again. Every day and in each moment, we need only choose again.

Love instead of fear. 
Forgiveness instead of judgment. 
Kindness instead of attack. 
Compassion instead of intolerance. 
God instead of rust and ice.

NOW REMEMBER …

“Offer God only your willingness to remember …
What you remember is part of you.”  
A Course In Miracles

 “Today I will remember who I am and why I’m here.”

At one time or another we all ask, Who am I? and Why am I here? The answer is simple.

I am the glorious child of a loving God. And my purpose is to be free of all fear.

Being without fear …
… engenders hope,
… allows us to extend and receive love more fully,
… opens our mind and heart to allow God’s Holy guidance,
… heals our heart, our mind and our body,
… encourages us to be our best self at all times,
… causes us to always remain calm and calms others,
… keeps us in a joyous state and attracts joy to us,
… protects us and our loved ones, keeping us safe in the light and love of God,
… allows us to be open to the abundance of a loving God,
… promotes forgiveness without condoning or condemning,
… lets us walk quietly in the world with our mind open to all possibilities,
… guarantees us a life dedicated to serving a higher purpose.

NOW REMEMBER!

You are the glorious child of a loving God. And your purpose is to be free of all fear.  It happens through forgiveness.

WE CANNOT WALK ALONE

“You do not walk alone. God’s angels hover near and all about. His Love surrounds you, and of this be sure; that He will never leave you comfortless.” A Course In Miracles.

“I will see myself comforted and surrounded by God’s Love today.”

When we look at the world, what do we see? All the pain, and suffering? Or the truth, that God is real and everything and everyone can be lifted into His Light for healing? Do we join the world in its misery by adding our negative energy of fear and judgment to the chaos? Or can we choose a better way?

What if we join forces with God by sending kind and loving thoughts into the world every chance we get? What if we lay our fears down and pray, “God help us.” What if we go about our day dispensing kindness and compassion to everyone we meet? What if we become part of the solution by smiling gently at anyone who needs a smile and offering a happy greeting to friends and strangers alike? What if we are part of the solution, by choosing to withhold judgment of what we see and hear on the news and instead send a healing prayer to everyone involved?

Love is energy that heals. Fear is energy that keeps the world in darkness. We have the capacity for both. We can get angry and righteous and choose to make the world the problem of those we see as guilty. Or we can take responsibility for our part in the mess by remembering our anger and our fear are just as powerful for keeping the world in pain as those who are actually acting out the drama and the violence. We may not want to believe that our thoughts are that powerful. After all we’re not doing anything to hurt anyone. But when we consider that we are creations of the greatest Power of all, is it too farfetched to believe that we are contributing to the chaos by keeping our thoughts in chaos? In a lesser way, perhaps, but contributors nonetheless. And there are billions of us joining forces in judgment and in fear.

The answer is forgiveness. We must, one person at a time, forgive ourselves for our mistakes and ask God to heal us so we can be instruments of peace instead of pain. It seems almost impossible to withhold our judgments and be free of ego fear. The natural thing seems to be to judge the world and to believe we know what everyone else should be doing differently. This desire to rule through our egos instead of allowing God’s Love in is very powerful and entrenched into our way of thinking and being in the world.

And so we cannot do it alone. God is always with us to help us change our thoughts whenever we open our mind and heart and turn to Him. For every fear thought there is a corresponding Love thought. We must be vigilant in watching how we react and respond to the world and those in our lives. And every time we find ourselves responding with negativity, we can stop ourselves even in mid sentence or mid thought and go somewhere quiet and say, “God, I give my mistaken thoughts to you. Please help me to be your channel and your tool for healing in the world.” Or “God, please help me to see this through Your Eyes so I can change my mind.”

Working through Love instead of fear is not easy. But it’s necessary if we really want a better world. Sometimes, we can only pray, “God help me.” And yet that is the most powerful prayer there is.

We are not alone. Powerful Guides walk with us. Let’s take Their hands and allow ourselves to be lifted above the fray where we can truly be a healer for God in the world. And when we find ourselves in the middle of the mess again, which we will, let’s take God’s hand again. And then again. And then again. Every experience and every moment is another opportunity to choose again. And to remember the powerful truth – that we are not alone. God and His Angels walk with us and His will for us is only peace and happiness and nothing else. When we turn to God for help we are simply aligning our will with His. And there is nothing more powerful that we can do for the healing of the world.

PEACE PROJECT

“And peace will be restored forever to the holy minds which God created as His Children, His dwelling place, His joy, His love, completely His, completely one with Him.” A Course In Miracles

“I will share peace with all the world today.”

I have a project that I thought I invented, but then found that others were also doing variations of what I was doing. My version is this; on business cards I imprint the word PEACE on one side and then on the other side I put a label with a kind thought such as “You are amazing.” And “You are a light in the world.” Or “You are a blessing here.” Here comes the fun part. I take these cards and surreptitiously leave them in public places. In grocery stores on top of a can of peas, in Wal Mart amongst the paper products, in restaurants and on car windows. Anywhere I happen to be. I do this in secret. To this day I have no idea how my peace project is working because I never wait to see who finds my cards or how they use them. But it doesn’t matter because the point is I feel happy to be doing this tiny thing in a world that needs more kindness. And it can’t hurt, right?

Think of a small peace project that fits in with your life. Be creative. Share it with your children. I also have kindness cards designed for children to be given to other children. Some say, “You’re awesome.” And “I want to be your friend.” Just a little positive message for someone to find to lift their spirit, to make them smile and to remind them they are not alone.

There are many small ways we can offer kindness in the world. Let’s live one loving act at a time as we teach our children kindness through simple acts bestowed as gifts anonymously or not. Whatever you feel guided to do will always be helpful. Even a smile and a greeting. And you never know how your little peace project may ripple and bring peace and joy and comfort and healing to others. What you can know is that you’re being part of the solution instead of part of the problem. And that will bring peace and joy and comfort and healing to you.

THERE IS POWER IN BEING HARMLESS

“Then the world is harmless in your sight. A Course In Miracles

“I will practice being harmless  today.”

Health and well being are when we see ourselves as more than a body. When an understanding comes over us that we are okay just as we are. No strings attached. No special conditions imposed. Just pure acceptance. This is the energy of Love. This is the power of being harmless.

Harmlessness is when we choose to be kind instead of hurtful to another. No matter how small the act, our willingness to be harmless offers a healing experience for us and for others. It is the essence of harmlessness when nothing we think or do or say disturbs us or anyone else.  True honesty and harmlessness is when our most loving thoughts are in perfect alignment with our actions and our words.  

Helpfulness happens whenever we see someone in need and offer a hand, a kind word, an encouraging smile. Whenever we hear someone’s cry for help and then answer it with a prayer or a blessing on their behalf. Whenever we withhold judgment and choose love instead.  This is the decision for Love; the decision to be harmless.

It is only in being harmless to our brothers and sisters, to our planet and to ourselves that we can be truly helpful in healing the world.

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!

QUIET CONTEMPLATION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

DRINK IN A BRAND NEW WORLD

“Here in the present is the world set free … a real world, bright and clean and new with everything sparkling under the open sun.”  A Course In Miracles

 “I will drink in calm and quiet healing today.”

Envision a clear glass pitcher upon the kitchen table.  As we go about our day we begin to fill it with our thoughts.  “I have a head-ache.” “The kids didn’t clean their rooms.”  “My spouse is driving me crazy.”  “My job is stressful.” “There’s too much to do and not enough time.” “I’m exhausted.” One by one these thoughts go into the pitcher until it is filled with a dark, swirling mass of pain and anger, stress and suffering.  Thirsting now for something we feel is sadly missing from our lives, we pour the mess into a dingy glass and drink it.  Seem ridiculous? Well, that is what we do every time we choose fear instead of love, anger instead of peace, chaos instead of quiet.  Is there any wonder we are so often sick?

What if we pour the pain down the drain, wash and polish the pitcher until it shines and put it back on the table?  And then we don’t think anything at all.  Just “That’s a beautiful pitcher.”  Very soon, without our trying, new thoughts will come into our mind because we are choosing to be still and allow them.  “I feel wonderful!”  “The children are living, breathing miracles.”   “My spouse is the love of my life. We may not always agree, but we can agree to disagree.” “My job is filled with opportunities for forgiveness.” “I’m watching time expand as I live and breathe  in this moment.”

Remember, for every fearful thought, there is a corresponding peaceful thought. Our job is to choose our thoughts with  Love.

These new thoughts glistening like liquid crystal will quickly fill the pitcher. And then when we pour from it into a clear glass and drink it, we will be drinking in the calm and quiet healing of our new thoughts. Before long our very being will be filled with a feeling of love so powerful that it will overwhelm us and bring tears of joy  to our eyes.  With wonder and awe we can now say, “I never knew the world was so beautiful. Let me drink it in.”

Then “Thank you God.”

LOOK, LISTEN, LIVE!

“Let this be a day of stillness and of quiet listening.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will live, look, act, speak and listen with God today.”

If we live through our heart we will experience life more fully.

If we look through our inner eyes, we will see more vividly.

If we act gently, we will feel more intensely.

If we speak kindly, we will communicate more truthfully.

If we listen quietly, we will hear more clearly.

If we open our minds and question our judgments
We will discover amazing things about ourselves and each other.

And God will smile joyously upon us. “They are getting it,” He will think. “My beloved Children are finally getting it.”

 So today let us

… live through our heart,  

… look inward,

… act gently,

… speak kindly,

… listen quietly,

… question our judgments,

… and make God smile.

TWISTED THINKING

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

“I have the power of happiness within me.”

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

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

Let us affirm ourselves:

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

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

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

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

BREATHE EASY

“We are as certain of success as we are sure we live and hope and breathe and think. We do not doubt we walk with truth today …”  A Course In Miracles

“I will breathe easy today.”

Breathe in the light of your own perfection.
Breathe in the beauty of your sweet spirit.
Breathe in the truth that lives inside you.
Breathe in this moment and keep it with you always, knowing

Now is all there is.
Now you can breathe easy.
Now you know that all is well …

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION – BE YOURSELF!

“We ARE a thought in the Mind of God.”  A Course In Miracles

“I will be my true Self today.”

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

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

In this beginning of a brand new year, we have the opportunity to re-think and understand that who and what we are is not what we believed in the old year.  If we think we are victims of an insane and unpredictable world, we need to think again.  If we think we are incapable of change for the better, we are mistaken. If we think we are less than perfect creations of a Divine Universe, we need to re-look at ourselves through God’s Eyes.  If we think we are powerless to have abundant, loving lives or that we are not part of the Plan to make the world a better place, we are wrong.

It is our thoughts that bring us peace or keep us tied to fear’s dark pain. Our thoughts are as powerful as God.  This is because we are the thoughts of God. Each and every one without exclusion is a thought in the Mind of God.  And God is Love.  And God is all there is.

Let’s let go of practicing today and BE. 

Instead of having resolutions for the New Year, let’s Be the resolution for a brand new world.  

Instead of wanting love and peace and joy and health and safety and abundance, let us Be those things.

Be Love!
Be Peace!

Be Joy!
Be Health!
Be Safe!
Be Abundant!
Be your SELF!

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 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?

OUR THOUGHTS HOLD POWER

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

“I will use my powerful thoughts only for good.”

The world cannot be unaffected by our thoughts,
Our choices or our energy,
Be they loving
Or filled with fear.

Every fear thought is a dam
Holding back
A tidal wave of LOVE.
Open the dam and …
… heal the world.

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.

IN THIS MOMENT

“And be you thankful that there is a place where truth and beauty wait for you …” A Course In Miracles

“I will be mindful of each moment in order to find my truth.”

In this instant lives all truth and beauty. In this moment all love and healing are deeply imbedded.

Even if we can’t see the miracles within this moment, we can trust that they are there. We need not search the past for our peace, nor do we need to leap into the future. Instead we need just live in this moment here and now to find everything we need to be happy, safe and well.

The past carries all our lessons that we have outgrown. Its only purpose now is to offer opportunities for forgiveness and then let it go. When we unclench our fists from our history, our story will change. If we are unhappy with our life, we can know that we are still allowing the past to rule our present. We must turn toward the past, thank it for its usefulness and then cheerfully say good-bye. What we experience here and now will be richer and more filled with joy when we understand that to be truly happy we must experience our life moment by moment.

Worry and anxiety are not helpful to a peaceful present. Worry is only praying for what we do not want. And it serves no purpose because it is not productive, nor is it helpful to ourselves, our loved ones or the world. Worry holds a power over our minds that keeps our story limited while it distracts us from the Truth. The alternative to worry is trust. To worry less, we must give to God everything that we feel disturbed about. All the things that have happened or that we think might happen, give to God so He can remove all doubt and fear from our thinking and replace it with calm and quiet confidence. Within this new calm and quiet confidence lives the trust that God is in charge and so no matter how we think it looks, it must be fine. Now the past has served its purpose and we are free to see things differently. “All your past except its beauty is gone, and nothing is left but a blessing.” (ACIM) is God’s promise to us.

The future that we worry over is but concern about repetition of a past that no longer serves us. So now we must release the future to God as well. “I place the future in the hands of God,” (ACIM) is the only prayer we need pray to bring us back into the moment where true opportunity for abiding peace and love and joy can happen.  

If we are experiencing challenges now, we must remember that our only choice is to pray, “God, please take this from me and show me what I must think and do and say to be at peace.” And He will guide us into the moment where our true lives will begin. Into the moment where we feel safe and loved and healed and whole. That moment does exist and it can be experienced only right here, right now with God leading the way.

And now we can be thankful that there is a place where truth and beauty wait for us. And it’s right here, right now.

LOOKING UP

“Every loving thought is true.” A Course In Miracles

“I will look up today.”

A beautiful thought is like a brightly shining star or an eagle in flight. It makes you look up.  When you look up, you are lifted from the mundane to the holy, from the fearful to the joyous.  Holy is like Heaven on earth. Joyous is a place inside you that is filled with light. This Heaven is an eternal part of your very being and this joyous place is your home. Just pray, “God is the love with which I experience this moment.” And whoosh you’re in Heaven and at home in the state of purest joy. It’s not the past or the future in which we live. It’s now. Stay in the now surrounded by God’s Love and you can travel anywhere and still be Home.

Every possible moment, think a lovely thought while looking for the brightly shining star. And while you’re gazing up at the star with a light heart and a smile on your face, don’t forget to watch for angels in flight.

You are a beautiful thought.  So now just be yourself; a loving thought in the Mind of God.

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!

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 neutral, harmless light just before it disappears from sight and is gone forever.

Now all that is left is a shining 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.
