THE SPACE BETWEEN

“The stillness speaks in gentle sounds of love …” A Course In Miracles

“I breathe in peace.  I breathe out healing.”

We often get so caught up with the busyness of life and the need to protect ourselves and our beliefs that we forget to allow the spaces in between. It is the space between the conversations, the activities, the plans, the politics, the TV, the computer, the tablet and the cell phone, where our true life is and where our real Self exists.  It is in the quiet moments where silence stills our thoughts and heals our heart’s pain that we belong. 

Whenever you want to enter that peaceful state that lives inside your mind and quietly waits for your awareness, simply become conscious of your breathing. Focus on your in breath and your out breath calmly and with intention. Allow your breath its natural rhythm and just watch it as a quiet observer.  Let a gentle smile form around your heart and on your face, then breathe.  Length of time is not as important as consistency.  Even a moment here and there, or once an hour or just once or twice a day is helpful.

At first we may scoff at our spiritual truth or we may feel bored with stillness and breathing. and believe that what is true is silly or insane. And we don’t hesitate to loudly disclaim what we think we don’t want. But lack of understanding and boredom are simply the ego’s ploy to keep us from our Truth. A way to keep us trapped in fear and sadness and anger and in righteous judgment. In a place in our mind where we don’t know that we don’t belong. If we could trust in God instead of the world’s insanity, what a great weight would be lifted from us.

Every mindful moment holds more value in it than all the busyness and defensiveness we feel is so important. If we could look at what we fear and be at peace with it, what would there be left to fear?

Two of our greatest challenges are to Listen and to Trust. To listen to our Truth and Trust in the Love of God. We would never know another moment’s pain if we could but be still in our minds and hearts and trust in the Truth that comes to us from listening and trusting. Listening to God and Trusting in God. Let us look at the divisiveness, fear and danger and anger in this world and ask ourselves, “Is this really what I want?” And then ask where is my judgment now? And boredom will disappear into the nothingness from which it came as it is replaced by happiness, joy, peace and love. We will no longer be fascinated by the darkness when once we have see the LIGHT!

Let our prayer be 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!

GOD IS ALL THERE IS

“Love is the way I walk in gratitude.” A Course In Miracles

“I will walk and see and be in gratitude today.”

In music and in poetry and art are we connected. In work and play we can recognize our holiness. In silence and in trust we shine our love upon the world and heal us all. Everything seen through a lens of kindness and compassion and forgiveness will show us our oneness clearly. In quiet and in listening, not just to words, but to hearts as well, do we know each other’s truth.

Let us join together in gratitude as we dance a joyous step and raise our voices in songs of praise to God and to each other. In this way, we will see us in our light, a thing of beauty, holy, whole and innocent.

Hand in hand and heart to heart, we walk through a garden of glorious color surrounded by heavenly scents and sounds. The smiles on our faces lift us up and fill us to overflowing with peace and joy and perfect health and God’s abundance. Now we know that God is real and the rest is just a dream.

The truth is God is Love and God is All there is. Love is the way we walk in gratitude and our gratitude has changed our life. 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Let our prayer be 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 LAWS OF TRUTH

“I am under no laws but God’s.” A Course In Miracles

“I will bless myself by blessing everyone today.”

Remember the old saying, anger and fear are the same as drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.  Now, isn’t that an insane way to live?

We are not separate from our sisters and our brothers. We cannot wish to take something from someone else and not find ourselves feeling deprived. We cannot wish ill upon anyone and not bring ill upon ourselves.  We cannot judge another without judging ourselves. It is not a punishment, but simply the Divine Law of Oneness. It’s like severing a finger or knocking ourselves over the head with a rock. Why would we do that? It’s gonna hurt because it is our own self we are attacking.

By this same law we cannot bless anyone without blessing ourselves.  We cannot truly love another without bestowing this same love upon our own self.

The Basic Law of Oneness is from God. How we choose to use it belongs to us. And therein lies our power which we call free will. Use God’s Law as He intended it in forgiveness, kindness and compassion then happiness and abundance will be forever ours. It’s only when we use our free will in a way that God did not choose that we get ourselves in trouble. It’s not God’s will that we hurt ourselves by hurting others. He doesn’t even understand it. And why would He? It makes no sense.

Feel everything going right today as you go about your day with calm and quiet confidence, an open mind and loving heart happily obeying God’s Law of Oneness.

Let our prayer be 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!

HAND AND HEART

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

It is impossible to judge kindly or to attack gently. Or to feel victimized when our heart is open and compassionate. Instead of being a victim of our brothers’ and sisters’ words and actions, we understand they are simply showing us their pain. They need our peaceful protests and our prayers. God can deal with those things that are beyond our power to control if we lay our problems at His feet. In the meantime because of our decision to be a channel for change, we are held in the mighty Hand and Heart of God perfectly safe and totally at peace.

Kindness is connection.
Forgiveness is freeing.
Gratitude is grace-filled.

Helpfulness is holy.
Love is Light.
God is Glorious.

Now we can forgive.  Now we can accept and feel compassion for those who think, look and live differently from us. Now we can see that those who act out in anger and fear are merely crying out for harmony and balance. They’ve lost it and they don’t know where to find it. And that’s a terrifying thing.  But we know where it is.

We find it within in the still and quiet place where God lives in each one of us. And we can use this new understanding to help those who don’t yet know what we know. Instead of reacting in kind to those who seem to be attacking us, let’s grow still and calm and ask God to help us help them.  Our prayer is, “God, let me be a channel for peace today. Amen.” “Light and joy and peace abide in me.” A Course In Miracles

“Today He speaks to you. His Voice awaits your silence, for His Word cannot be heard until your mind is quiet for a while, and meaningless desires have been stilled. Await His Word in quiet. There is peace within you to be called upon today, to help make ready your most holy mind to hear the Voice for its Creator speak.” A Course In Miracles

Let our prayer be 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!

CELEBRATING ONENESS

“By grace I live. By grace I am released.
By grace I give. By grace I will release.” A Course In Miracles

God’s grace is constant like the sun. It is we who change and move close then move away and back again in a dance of alternating fear and joy. When we think God isn’t listening or helping it’s because we’ve plugged our own ears and turned away from Him. Often without even knowing what we’re doing. We blindfold ourselves to the truth. God is always open and accessible and there for us, but we are full of secrets from the past and anxieties about the future. 

We put up protective defenses and cloud our experiences of God’s grace by our lack of trust and our determination to remain separate and independent not only from our Source but also from each other. We celebrate Independence Day which is fine, but what if we also had a Oneness Day? And that day was every day?

The time always comes that we crave our holiness and His gentleness and grace and our Oneness once again. This can’t be helped. We can’t fight or hide from our own Truth indefinitely. We can’t ignore our light and His gifts to us forever. At some point, we must grow still and breathe in the Holy Air of God. We must rest gratefully in God’s blessedness and thank Him for His Holy Presence in our lives. We must because it is only then we can feel whole and healed. We want that feeling. We know somewhere within ourselves that God’s Love is all that we can trust. The simple truth is that we are a ray of God’s constant Light and we are only happy in those moments when we look within and remember that.

Let’s envision ourselves on a swing. As we swing closer to the Light we experience the glory of God’s Love. When we swing away we experience the fears of the world. But if we ask for His help, God will gently remove us from the swing and keep us in the safety of His Light forever; right inside His Heart where we belong. And now we breathe freely and as we bask in the Light and Grace and Oneness of our own truth we can’t stop smiling as we remember, “I am as God created me.” A Course In Miracles  One with Him and all of His Creations.

Let our prayer be 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!

PEACEFUL INTERRUPTION

“I could see peace instead of this.” A Course In Miracles

“Help me answer all my fear-filled thoughts with peace.”

Fear speaks first.  That’s why the world seems so insane. Fear’s voice is easily recognized. It sounds like an unhappy three year old as it tantrums its way into our minds distracting us with raucous shrieks until we give it all of our attention.  Or it surges through us like an insidious and silent swirl of muddy feelings and fills our hearts and every aspect of our being with dark dread.

Fear separates us and divides us and makes us think there is a them and us. It brings hate into our minds and hearts and pushes Love away. Fear is the reason we cannot find peace. Fear hides our light behind a black cloud of nothingness we believe in so strongly that we have forgotten who we are. God cannot be found in fear, not because of Him, but because of us. We close our eyes and ears and minds and hearts and worship fear instead of Love.

When we finally choose to take a breath, calm our mind, smile into our heart and surrender these intolerable emotions, sweet and gentle Peace, who has been waiting in the wings is allowed to flow free. And our minds and hearts are filled with quiet joy.

The insanity is interrupted and Love becomes the power in which we function. While fear just disappears. And we see what deep inside ourselves, we have known all along, God speaks our Truth, Love is real and fear is nothing at all. And the light dawns once more. The world is at peace and health and safety are as natural as breathing.

Let our prayer be 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!

HAPPINESS IS A GENTLE CHOICE

“Gentleness means that fear is now impossible, and what could come to interfere with joy?” A Course In Miracles

“I will decide for gentle joy today.”

If we want to know how little we really trust God, we just need to look at the world around us.  If we really believed in Him and trusted Him as we should, that energy would bring a different world into our experience. 

The world we see offers little that we want.  Let’s look around and see how insane it is to believe in a world of disease, danger, divisiveness and death.  

A world where one child of God can appear to overpower another with his will. And where the other child of God appears to be the victim. Where is the gentleness in this?

A world where bad things happen to good people.  A world where children are at risk and answers are seen in violence. Where is the gentleness now?

A world where war seems like a solution and suffering is everywhere. A world where nature is so out of balance that it threatens the entire planet.  This world needs something new. It needs gentleness; God’s gentleness and our own.

This is not God’s world, this is human’s world.  Even if humans say a thing is God’s will, if there is anything but pure and gentle Love and Joy involved, IT IS NOT GOD’S WILL. 

It’s time to stop denying the truth and turn to God instead. It’s time to ask for help in seeing God’s World through this world. God’s world is here now. We get glimpses, but it seldom lasts. Only for the truly gentle can God’s world be experienced consistently. To hear God is not a matter of fighting the crazy ego thinking; it’s simply a matter of being still and going inward with the gentle trust of open minds and hearts. If we look, without judgment or attachment, at the insane thoughts that rule our lives and then quietly let them pass on by while we return to our peaceful core where God lives, it wouldn’t be long before we would realize that being happy is nothing more than a gentle choice.

Then we can see that anger, violence, sadness and pain are simply cries for help. And gentleness is the Truth of us. “To everyone I offer gentleness.” A Course In Miracles

Gentleness is often equated with weakness. But instead it is a powerful force, a gift from God that allows us to see the world anew and to experience a joy filled life and a holy, healed world.

“Creation’s gentleness is all I see.” A Course In Miracles

Let our prayer be 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!

FLOWERS IN THE ROCK GARDEN

“And every flower that ever bloomed has saved its perfume and its loveliness for you.” A Course In Miracles

“God’s flowers come in many colors, shapes and sizes and we are God’s flowers.”

On our back we carry a pack weighted by our past experiences. Each experience is a rock that piles one upon another until our past becomes a burden too heavy to bear. Let’s give each rock to God as it comes into our mind and let Him transform it from a troubling fear into our favorite flower. Every flower is now a lesson learned and weighs nothing as yesterday becomes only a distant memory; an opportunity for forgiveness, for healing and for gratitude that the past is over and this moment, piled high with lovely flowers, is all there is. As we rest upon our bed of flowers, our loving gifts from God, we see another world now. This wonderful new world rises lightly out of the ancient mist of the old world and is governed by God’s Laws which are all made from Love and nothing else.

May you understand that you are His flower abiding in His holy garden as an instrument of love, kindness, light and joy and oneness. And let this knowing bring you peace today.

Let our prayer be 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!

OUR HAPPY HOME

I am at home. Fear is the stranger here.” A Course In Miracles

As we awaken each morning, let’s open our eyes, look around calmly and smile in quiet expectation of good things to come.

“I awake with joy expecting only the happy things of God to come to me.”  A Course In Miracles

Our world and our life is what we make of it. As we fill our minds with happy thoughts and plans for kindness, peace and joy we are at home in love.  And fear, always the stranger here, stays outside, harmless and powerless to disturb us. We may see it at the peripheral of our vision but it never comes inside.

Without an invitation fear cannot come to the party where our true life is lived and where our true home is shared with angels and everyone is family.

Under one roof laughter rings out, songs are sung and hands and minds are joined. Now we are in celebration of ourselves and each other and God is our Holy Host. His Home is our Home lit by Love and flooded with miracles of healing and oneness.

Each day brings new promises of amazing delights. No matter where we are, we are at Home, fear-free, love-filled and overflowing with gratitude and peace and health and joy.

We thank God for showing us the truth. We are at home. Fear is the stranger here.

Let our prayer be 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!

WHO AM I, REALLY?

“Who would attempt to fly with the tiny wings of a sparrow when the mighty power of an eagle has been given him?” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will willingly question my identity and my real purpose here.”

We must start with one tiny step in God’s direction, then another and another, just as a toddler learns to walk. We have convinced ourselves that believing in our holiness and our greatness is egotistical when exactly the opposite is true. Believing in our holiness really means that we believe in God.

It is egotistical to tell ourselves that we are something less than God’s creation. Then we are saying that we know more about ourselves than God does.  How can we know more than our Creator about His creation?  We have made ourselves small through our thinking.  The first step is to ask Him for help in letting go of our tiny beliefs so we can begin to get a glimmer of who we are through His eyes.

Each small step in His direction, lifting our faces to the Light, taking His hand and asking Him for help in letting go of our limited preconceived notions, will bring us closer to our truth. The greatest prayer on earth is “Help me.” This is what it means to surrender. This is true forgiveness; true forgiveness of ourselves and for the world.

One small step, one tiny entreaty, one crack in the armor, one question in our minds can open the floodgate to true Love.  And the question is this; Who am I, really? The sparrow or the eagle?  Let us decide with God today.

Let our prayer be 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!

INSIDE THESE WALLS

“Now are you free to follow in the way your true forgiveness opens up to you. For if one brother has received this gift of you, the door is open to yourself.” A Course In Miracles

“I will allow myself to leave my home of fear.”

Like a territorial cat who has always lived inside the four walls of a house and then finds the front door wide open, we can stick our noses out into the wider universe and begin to understand that maybe all this time we have been missing something. Something amazing and wonderful is out there if we just allow ourselves to check it out. Sure there will be lessons.  It won’t be perfect right away, but it will be a step in the right direction.

Every experience in which we are open to our higher learning through our forgiveness and our trust, is a step toward peace.  All we’re asked to do is to provide a little willingness and God will take our hand and lift us up to the highest place within us. And from that vantage point we will see clearly that we have been mistaken. There is another way to live. In time, the highest place within us becomes a little higher and a little higher and a little higher.

As our burdens and our fears are lovingly lifted from us, we will smile with relief and life will be a joy. Health and happiness, abundance and safety will be as natural as breathing.  There are many people who live this way already.  Shall we join them? 

Let our prayer be 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!

VALIDATE YOURSELF

“Be comforted, and feel God watching over you in love and perfect confidence in what He sees. … it is impossible the confidence of God should be misplaced.” A Course In Miracles

“My true validation comes from God.”

We cannot allow ourselves to be defined by other people’s opinions. Self confidence is seeing other’s opinions of us without judgment or attachment and being able to say to ourselves calmly and kindly, without emotional investment, “Well, that’s their opinion. And the opinions of others are none of my business.” This is done with a calm and quiet mind and a compassionate heart.

Very few people in this world are not affected by the judgments of others.  Almost everyone feels they need to be validated by an outside source. When they’re not validated they feel bad about themselves and when they are they feel good about themselves. The problem with that is that other people’s opinions are about them and not us at all. Each one of us brings judgments and perceptions from our own past experiences which color our way of seeing.  Our judgments can even change from moment to moment depending upon our mood, our level of restfulness, our own sense of value or lack thereof and a myriad of other conditions.  And some will judge us one way and others the opposite.

In this sense it’s clear that counting on someone else’s judgment as a way to define us is to ride a crazy roller coaster that is being controlled by someone outside of us who has their own lessons and issues. This is true whether we’re talking about a job interview, a workplace situation or a personal relationship. To be truly happy we have to get off that roller coaster and let God be our Guide and our Holy Validator.  That is true validation and it comes from an Inside Source.

Let our prayer be 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!

HELP A FRIEND

“Helpfulness created me helpful.” A Course In Miracles

“I will help a friend today.”

Help a friend today. Pick someone who suffers and is sad, hurting or alone. Think of someone who is afraid and wandering in darkness thinking there’s no way out. Go to that person in your mind and take their hand. Smile gently upon them and remind them of their power to be joyful and free. Lead them to a beautiful place high up that overlooks a body of clear, blue water. Sit close beside your chosen one. Take their hand and watch the sun rise over the body of water. Tell them with calm and quiet confidence, that the rays from the rising sun are but a small reflection of the light from their own wondrous spirit. Let them know that they are so beautiful and holy, whole and healed that all the world bows down to them and basks in their perfect light and is healed because of them.

Tell them there is hope and all is well. Remind them that everything they need and want in truth is theirs already. Shower them with kindness and allow a gentle breeze to blow their cares away. With absolute sincerity, want for them only happiness, abundance, peace and love and health and safety in a perfect world.  And then see that what you want with love has already happened for them.

Make them laugh. Lift their spirits to the highest heights.  Rejoice with them as you dance together upon a new earth and sing songs with melodies from heaven and lyrics that could only come from God, Himself.  Grow quiet with your friend and listen closely to the still, small voice, now loud and clear, that validates all that you are telling them.

Give your friend a final hug. Look lovingly upon the smiling faces reflected in the water’s stillness and see the truth. You are healing two dear friends and the second one is you.

And as you help another, you help yourself and as you help yourself, you help the world.

May you befriend yourself today knowing you are blessed and a blessing in the world. 

Let our prayer be 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!

A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION

“In quiet I receive God’s Word today.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will choose to listen.”

We could all do with a little less conversation, a little more loving thoughts. We spend way too much time talking about our lives, evaluating our relationships, deciding who is right and who is wrong and feeling defensive, judgmental and generally unhappy and dissatisfied with our lot in life.  It’s as though we believe our experiences have nothing to do with our decisions and our choices, but are foisted upon us by an unfriendly fate. And having decided this, we then talk about it incessantly.

It’s time to stop hashing and rehashing and change our mind, not only about others, but first and foremost about ourselves. It’s time to let go of unhappy thoughts and exchange them for some loving thoughts. For every unhappy thought, unkind act, or judgmental word, there is an equivalent loving thought, act or word. We just need to be quiet a moment and allow them in.  In stillness we can hear God’s voice gently reminding us again and again, “A little less conversation, a little more listening please. “

Let our prayer be 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!

ORDINARY DAY

“Today I wake with joy, expecting but the happy things of God to come to me.” A Course In Miracles

I love an ordinary day.

What is an ordinary day? It should be one where minds are calm and hearts are open to whatever the Universe has in store.

It doesn’t matter whether the sun is shining or rain is falling or hurricanes are raging, somehow we are still at peace. We do what we need to do to keep ourselves safe, but we do it with calm and quiet confidence trusting there is a Higher Power guiding us.  I have seen this phenomenon in many who are going through challenges.

In an ordinary morning we make the toast and pour the coffee with a quiet smile and feel the blessings of the moment.

In an ordinary day we go to work or stay at home expecting nothing but receiving everything. Miracles of gentle joining are happening all around us and our eyes are open to seeing and receiving them with love.

Smiles light up our ordinary faces, ordinary laughter fills the room with joy and the warmth of gladness is flowing from heart to heart. And now our lives our filled with extraordinary Love.

Without expecting anything out of the ordinary we somehow know we are being given everything. And we are grateful for this ordinary day. Our silent mantra is thank you.

God’s beautiful voice is running through our minds in a constant stream as He repeats this phrase,”I love you my beloved children. You are holy. You are perfect in My eyes. You are My ordinary and most glorious creations. Thank you for seeing Me and nothing else. “

What makes this amazing moment ordinary is that this is the way it should be as part of our every day experience. Because this is the way we are choosing to live every day, the amazing becomes an ordinary walk through life with God. Simply the way it’s meant to be.

And we feel anything but ordinary.

Let our prayer be 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!

PRAYER FOR MOVING ON

“I will step back and let God lead the way. Love leads so gladly.” A Course In Miracles

In God our way is clear and the smile of confidence on our face fills our being giving us these thoughts, “Lead on Holy Source of all things Good. Lead on.”

And we say, “I am ready for my real life. I am ready to experience my truth. I am ready to leave fear and guilt behind and to let true forgiveness change the course of my path.”

“I am ready to be, not just at peace, but your teacher of peace. Your candle in the darkness, your rainbow after the storm, your mountain climbed, your holy ocean tamed.”

 “My head is high, my heart is flooded with the joy of intention and my only thoughts are those I think with You.”

“Dear God, please give me my thoughts. Tell me what to do and what to say and where to be.”

 “Lead on. I get it now. My happiness is in my following my path, Your path for me. I take Your hand and with deep gratitude I say, Lead On! And with even deeper gratitude and absolute trust, I must humbly follow.”

Let our prayer be 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!

REMEMBER SOMETHING ELSE

“The peace of God envelopes me, and I forget all things except His Love.” A Course In Miracles

How is our memory? Do we remember every slight? Every mistake we’ve made? Every unkind word or thought or deed directed toward us? What if we let all that go and allowed the peace of God to flow over us replacing all our judgments, all our anger and hurt feelings and our victim and defensive thinking with something else? What if we chose selective amnesia remembering only what matters and forgetting all that doesn’t? 

Like looking through a fog, see through the negativity and anger and sorrow and fear to the light on the other side. That’s how we grow past the pain.  We don’t deny our past, we just look through it for something else. There is always something else.

How would our lives change if we chose to live in confidence and joy instead of pain and fear? Can we even do that?

Every moment is an opportunity to choose again.

Every instant offers us another way to see.

Fear and suffering? Let’s forget about it and accept our gifts instead. Instead of counting our hurts, let’s count our blessings. There are so many.

Here is the formula for freedom from fear. Gently look at what disturbs you, smile kindly upon it and then open your heart and mind and let it go. Give it to God and let it go. Then laugh lovingly that what seemed so serious was really nothing much at all. Now watch the fear blow away like smoke in a breeze. Feel the weight of it lift from your shoulders and free your mind and heart for things more valuable like peace and happiness and joy.

Everything is there for your highest good. Use all things as opportunities to learn and grow. All you have to do is own it and pray, “God I give this and everything to you.”

Remember, you deserve all that is right and good in your life. “You are entitled to miracles.” A Course In Miracles

Let our prayer be 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!

 “What other gift can you offer Me, when only this I choose to offer you? And to see Me is to see Me in everyone, and offer everyone the gift you offer Me.” A Course In Miracles

What we offer to the world is what we will receive. Offer judgment, offer pain and suffering, offer anger, sadness and fear and that is what we will receive. It is not God’s will, but the result of cause and effect, a natural law that governs all things because all things are One. But we also have free will and so we can choose the life we want and what we want to offer others. And so for just a moment, let us make our offerings to the world and stand back and see what happens. One by one let’s pick a loving thought and breathe into it a blessing and place it into the heart of everyone we meet. Below are some examples.

To you I offer perfect health .

To you I offer gentleness and joy.

To you I offer forgiveness.

To you I offer healing.

To you I offer calm and quiet thinking.

To you I offer gratitude.

To you I offer happiness .

To you I offer peace of mind.

To you I offer God’s abundance and His grace.

To you I offer Love, constant and eternal.

And as the day goes on continue making offerings from your heart and silently place them into the heart of someone else. And when the day is done feel how all the weight of everything that burdened you has been lifted and all the gifts you gave to others have become your own. Fear may come and go, but your offerings of Love and Peace and Gratitude, of Happiness and Forgiveness and Gentleness and Joy will remain constant and eternal.

Let our prayer be 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!

WINGS OF GLORY

“…free its wings, and it will fly in sureness and in joy to join its holy purpose.”  A Course In Miracles

“I will fly on wings of glory today.”

When we look at ourselves in the mirror of our mind, what do we see? The caterpillar? Or the butterfly? Do we wrap and trap ourselves into a tight cocoon, seeing only darkness, differences and hearing cries of self righteous anger and of pain? Is this darkness filled with confusion, doubt and fear? Or is it a quiet place where we can rest our spirit as we prepare to allow our grace and glory to burst forth?

In time our caterpillar vision must expand. With this evolvement there may come some pain. Although it needn’t be. Let us allow the cocoon in which we’ve wrapped ourselves to split open. Let us emerge a thing of beauty that flies free on wings of glory. Let us delight the world with our presence and bring hope and light and joy to all who come before us.

Only if we allow it, can we see God’s Light as it shines His Love upon the truth of us reminding us that we are His Holy Butterflies, flying freely and of many different colors. Only if we let Him can He help us heal our fear and sadness, trading in the silent loneliness of separation and suffering for a pure and perfect healing. Only with our permission can He show us that peace is already ours and the only thing that we can keep as well as share is Love. Wrapped in the Loving Light of God, sip the sweetness of the nectar of life. Know the truth about yourself; you are, without exception, His glorious creation, holy, whole and healed. Trust in Him to guide you through relationships and moments, smooth and rough. See all your cares as but cocoons filled with hidden joy, ready to burst forth, a thing of beauty in the light of day.

We must understand that we can most fully help others when we know ourselves.  Let us see ourselves from the perspective of our truth so we can begin to be teachers of God in the highest sense and ambassadors of peace on His behalf. When we remember all this about ourselves, we are able to be of the greatest good to God.  Then can we truly fly on wings of glory, holy, whole and healed.

Let our prayer be 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!

GETTING BACK ON TRACK

“You are as God created you. And as it was His Thought by which you were created, so it is your thoughts which [you] must set free, that you may know the Thoughts you share with God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will let God conduct the train that is my day.”

Fear is letting the ego lead us on a journey toward a train wreck.  And then another and another. So why go there? There is another train, you know. Another depot. And another Conductor.

To know that we have the power to be at peace no matter how the world looks to us brings us hope and lifts our spirits. And to know that we have God’s loving guidance to help us along the way is also empowering.  We know we are never alone, right? Or do we sometimes forget? In some circumstances it simply doesn’t seem possible that God can be conducting this moment. Or that person. Or that experience.

What if we understood that fear is not our reality? Think of the power in that single thought. Now let’s say this together; “If it feels like fear in any form, it simply isn’t real.”  We have stressed before that only God is real and God is all there is and He is only Love.  Therefore, if we are experiencing anything other than Love we must be making a mistake. We’ve gotten off the track of God’s intention for us, pure and simple.  So let’s lay our fears before His feet and rest our mind in His.  This takes a leap of faith. After all much of the time it feels as though that train which is our life, is not only off the track, but heading toward a cliff!

How can I trust in God when there is a pandemic, people are sick and I lost my job? How can I trust God in a world that is so divisive and angry and where the color of a person’s skin determines their worth? How can I believe He’s here when my relationship is on the rocks?  When I’ve lost a loved one? When the news is disastrous every day?  

What we cannot see is that when the fear train rushes over a cliff, our Holy Conductor becomes a Pilot. And now the train is a plane!  God does not cause disasters, pain or suffering but He carries us beyond them and shows us how to transform a mess into a miracle. Through kindness, tolerance, open mindedness and our willingness to be God’s Holy Channel for healing in a sick and tired world made by fear and hate and now transformed by Love.

Let our prayer be 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!
