SAY YES TO LIFE

“God being love is also happiness. I will seek only what is mine in truth.” A Course In Miracles

“I will say YES to life today.”

Let’s see how many times we can say yes today.  Not yes in the sense that we are afraid to say no, but YES in the sense that we allow ourselves to be open to the possibilities for a beautiful experience in each moment.

Below are some YES thoughts for us to consider.

YES, I give myself permission to be happy.
YES, I will see my loved ones as the lights of my life.
YES, I will laugh in the rain and celebrate in the sun.
YES, I will see the beauty in my spirit.
YES, I will stop and experience nature knowing it is free.
YES, I will believe I am not this body and this body is not me.
YES, I will accept I am Holy and Beloved beyond this world.
YES, I will use my body as an instrument of peace.
YES, I will enjoy the world without guilt.
YES, I will welcome everyone with an open mind.
YES, I will trust that there are possibilities for joy in every experience.
YES, I will forgive every grievance for my own peace of mind.
YES, I will not be afraid to be open to joy knowing joy is my truth.
YES, I will calm my mind and quiet my thoughts.
YES, I will experience my life with mindful grace.
YES, I will be patient with everyone who comes before me.
YES, I will spend time every day becoming centered.
YES, I will silently listen to God’s Will in all things.

YES, I will remember we are all ONE!

Whenever our cautious, fearful mind wants to deny us our peace and joy, let’s ask how we can turn that NO into a happy YES.  Every YES that comes from Love is a miracle.

PAYING ATTENTION

“You need offer only undivided attention. Everything else will be given you.” A Course In Miracles

“I will pay attention only to Love today.”

Let’s watch our thoughts today.  Let’s watch our minds wandering a crooked path of anxiety and confusion. And to add to the complication, there are boulders to climb over and fallen trees blocking us along the way. There is no map that we can follow for this path because it twists and turns and then spins back upon itself for no reason at all.  One moment we’re heading in one direction, then without provocation we’re suddenly somewhere else.  Like a cat that can’t make up its mind. The cat appears to be resting comfortably in the living room, then for no known reason, it leaps up and races willy nilly into the kitchen and leaps onto the refrigerator. Like the cat’s, our thoughts have no consistent purpose that we can see, but to keep us distracted and confused about our reality.  Unlike the cat who is only being itself and following its nature, our thinking comes from fear.  Not from fear of bad things happening, but from fear of LOVE happening. We don’t really understand Love and so we wander our crooked, winding path unconsciously keeping Love away while believing strongly that we’re searching for it.  

Love would straighten the path, remove the boulders, lift the trees and change our life.  This is a terrifying thought for some, although we all would deny it.  No one wants to believe that they are more comfortable in their pain than without it. And so we continue to perpetuate fear-filled thoughts that keep us on this dark and twisted, but familiar path. 

We feel amazing when we observe or are instrumental in creating joyous miracles. Yet we never keep our joy for long.  Love is tolerable in small doses, but our egos can’t allow Love to rule us or be our constant experience. The tiny, noisy ego would fall away in the face of the glorious Light of God’s Love.  We’re so afraid to lose our ego, our individuality and our independence that we do whatever we need to do to keep it alive,  including block God’s Love from our experience. We think we are here to be separate from each other, but in truth we are here to recognize our Oneness.

We judge ourselves and others.  We get angry over the smallest things. We justify our righteous thinking. We watch the news and read the newspapers to keep ourselves informed as to just how bad things are. We keep our sadness wrapped around us like a protective cloak. We complain about our stress and how it is making us sick.  And yet we don’t give it up by surrendering it to God. Instead we allow it to have power over us and continue to complain and to get sick. 

When we allow God’s loving laws to rule our experience instead of the world’s laws of fear, we will be allowing holy miracles to rain upon us and splash our lives with Light and Joy; with Peace and Love. This peace, this love and joy doesn’t come and go, but stays constant and eternal. It extends through us from the Divine Universe.  Now we can be the channel through which His Love flows and all healing happens.  And it all comes from paying attention – not to the ego, but to God.

FOREVER HEALING

“There is not a moment in which God’s Voice fails to direct our thoughts, guide our actions and lead our feet. We are walking steadily on toward truth.” A Course In Miracles

We are healing, healing, healing, 
Forever healing,
Quietly and constantly…

Much of the time, we are completely unaware. Though understanding may burst forth in moments of sudden clarity and erupt in joy, only to fade into a misty fog once more. But while the clarity lasts we are filled with peace and understanding so deep and wondrous that we know for that holy instant life is perfect and so are we.

Though we can’t yet sustain our understanding, there is a stillness and a knowing deep inside us that cannot be disturbed. A light that cannot be extinguished. A pressing forward that cannot be deterred. That quiet knowing lives in us awaiting the opportunity for the next moment of light and joy to push through the misty darkness of our fears and doubts. Now we are gladly given another glimpse of truth. And each time we feel it, or hear it, or see it and every loving miracle we experience no matter how insignificant it may seem to us, is really huge in its power to bring us closer to the holy truth of who and what we are. 

Our power is in our ability to choose. And every time we choose the true over the false, our miracle muscle is strengthened and our fear muscle is weakened and we find ourselves watching more and more closely for loving, healing moments that lift our hearts to new and higher heights.

LAUGHTER HEALS

“Where there is laughter, who can longer weep?” A Course In Miracles

“I will laugh myself silly today.”

Let’s throw back our heads and dissolve into delighted laughter. Feel how nothing seems to matter when we’re laughing. Let’s watch as all the things that filled our minds with worry have seemed to disappear. Laughter paints light over darkness, sunshine over clouds, smiles over tears. Laughter is musical and uplifting. It heals sickness and transforms pain into joy. It turns tragedy into comedy and brings happiness and oneness into the moment. Many a relationship has been cemented upon the common ground of a shared laugh.  Many a tense moment has been dissolved in laughter.

If we want to be at peace, a great first step is to gently laugh at those things that seem so serious. Nothing is so critical that a bit of humor can’t be found to lighten the moment. When we practice this simple art, we transform our experience from a heavy weight into a gentle lesson quickly learned.

May we drink in the intoxication of joyous laughter today knowing that laughter heals all things. And it’s contagious.

JUDGEMENT OUT. HEALING IN.

“Forgiveness is the key to happiness.” A Course In Miracles

“I will let God handle things today.”

Instead of focusing so intently on our imperfections and our fears and all that we perceive to be negative about ourselves and others and the world, why don’t we instead focus on simply accepting who we are just the way we are?  “I love and accept myself exactly as I am.” And then accept others for themselves as well. Once we have accepted life as it is, we can then begin the process of inner change.  “For it is on this forgiveness rests, and is but natural.” A Course In Miracles 

We have trained ourselves to judge everything and everyone … to the nth degree.  We thrive on our judgments, because we believe in them so strongly.  If something “looks” a certain way, we say it is so. We believe in what we think we see as though it were etched in stone. Many a relationship has suffered for just such thinking. 

Much fear has been justified in the name of righteousness. It doesn’t help that we have a great capacity to forget how many times we have judged and were wrong. And even when we remember we were wrong, we still managed to turn that to our advantage somehow so we can keep on being right. It takes great honesty and humility and forgiveness of ourselves and others to admit we made a mistake and then to learn from that mistake and allow it to be healed. “Forgiveness is the only sane response.” A Course In Miracles

If we’re not sure we believe in the power of our judgments, let’s do this exercise. Let’s take a strong opinion we have about something in our life and try and let it go. Religion, Relationships, Politics, Differences, Justice, Money, and Death are just a few topics we may feel strongly about. Let’s take an opinion about any one of these things and let it go. Feel the stress from trying to swallow that idea?  And yet it is these very judgments that keep us imprisoned in a world of suffering and pain.

God’s job is to impress His loving judgment upon all these things that worry us so much. To let go of judgment does not mean the world will go to hell in a hand basket. It only means that we are letting God handle what belongs to Him so all these complicated things can be simplified and the world can be open to His Holy Healing.    

Every judgment thought slams a door on God.  Every acceptance thought opens a heart and lets Him in. Every forgiveness thought radiates love and heals the world a little more.

This is our moment to banish judgment and welcome healing through forgiveness and love. Let’s join hands and minds and hearts and do it! “Forgiveness offers everything I want.” A Course In Miracles

SMILE AT FEAR

“If you raise what fear conceals to clear-cut unequivocal predominance, fear becomes meaningless. You have denied its power to conceal love, which was its only purpose. The veil that you have drawn across the face of love has disappeared. Thus does God replace fear with love and translate error into truth.” A Course In Miracles

“I will smile in Fear’s face today and see the light beyond.”

Sometimes it seems that fear has a mind of its own. We know we want to be happy and at peace but fear just won’t let us. It wraps its claw-like fingers around our heart and squeezes the breath right out of our lungs. Or its dark shadow silently stalks us all day, staying at the peripheral of our mind until the night when all is quiet. Then it leaps out at us with crazy thoughts of this and that.

We try to fill our minds with loving affirmations and busy thoughts that feel more productive. We may try to pray, or meditate, but our brain is churning with doubt and confusion. Sometimes it’s too overwhelming and we just cry out for help or yell at God for letting this happen to us. After all, we work so hard trying to be a good person, how is it possible that we can be in such pain?

But perhaps this fear isn’t such a bad thing. What if it is simply part of the process of our healing and really something helpful if we just stop fighting it?  What if we just stand back and allow it?  Feel the tension in our shoulders, the tightness in our chest. Can we unclench our fists and simply look at the panic thoughts and let the sad and angry tears flow free? It isn’t easy to face the fear with a calm and quiet mind and an open heart. In fact it can be terrifying because it feels like the end of our peace forever. But we know it isn’t. We’ve had these insanity attacks before. We know they come and go. They must be part of the journey of allowing us to heal from our past.

So now, let’s just watch our fear and see what it does. See how it fades more quickly with no resistance? See how clearly we can see God’s loving Light fill up the dark space where fear, just moments before, felt so powerful and real? See how our tears of sadness quietly become tears of gratitude and joy? 

What a relief to know that no matter how it looks or how it feels, fear is not real. Only God is. And God is only Love. Now, we understand, if we’re not at peace, we’re simply making a mistake. And we can smile quietly and pray, “I want the peace of God instead of this.” ACIM It’s not our job to correct the mistake, it’s our job to stop fighting it so God can shine His Light into our mind and heart and make the corrections for us. He does this by showing us the truth of who we are.

Will fear come back? Most likely. The ego doesn’t give up easily. But now we know the answer, let it come.  Sure it’s scary, but so what?  Scary isn’t the end of the world. If we can accept that and smile through the pain, even better. Our smile tells us it’s not so serious as we thought and opens up the channel for God’s healing Power. Now, we can get back into our right minds, our loving prayers and quiet meditations which help to weaken our fear muscle and strengthen our joy muscle. Fear is just a thought and so is Love. God gave us the power to choose which teacher we will follow, which thought we would  listen to, which muscle we want to strengthen.

One thing is for certain, if we choose to be at war with fear or try to hide from it, we only make it stronger. The only way to dispel it is to accept, allow and surrender it to God. “There is nothing to fear.” A Course In Miracles

Dear God, show us how to be Keepers of the Light and instruments of peace today. We truly want to be Your helpers in the healing of the world.

I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

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

“I will choose Light and Peace today in all things.”

Light in the spiritual sense is an internal thing.  Unlike the sun, the moon and the stars, it shines eternally within us.  It can be a quiet sense of knowing or well being or a glorious radiance of happy wonder that emanates from our very core.

“The Light has come.  I am at peace.” A Course In Miracles

When our light is allowed, it shines on everything in our path. No thoughts of darkness or fear, no worry or anxiety can disturb our peace in this light. It comes from our true being, from God that lives in each of us.  It cannot be turned off with a switch, but can only be temporarily forgotten or hidden behind a fog of misunderstanding when we place our focus elsewhere. 

“The Light has come.  I am at peace.” A Course In Miracles

Light like joy is a choice.  It can be chosen in each moment and in every experience.  When we choose Light in everything, all answers come to us as soon as the questions are asked.  All obstacles are removed from our path because our light simply shines them away.  It’s important to understand that to truly experience our light we must also choose to see it in others.

“The Light has come.  I am at peace.” A Course In Miracles

Light cannot be contained, but only hidden behind the clouds for a time. As soon as we choose to brush the clouds away, there it is, LIGHT.  God is the source of our Light. Created in His likeness we are His Light in the world. Constant and eternal and forever our Light shines like a beacon for healing and happiness.  Let’s join ourselves in our own Light today and be at peace from this moment on.

“The Light has come. I have forgiven the world.” A Course In Miracles

MIRACLES TRANSCEND

“Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love.” A Course In Miracles

“I will see only miracles of healing today.”

Can we understand beauty that transcends the body? What of beauty that creates another world; one that transforms our small thinking into something glorious, loving and limitless? Today, let’s see our inner beauty and this other world. Let’s see it for ourselves and for all those who suffer pain today.

Help us see that quietly within our very being lives everything we need to experience wondrous miracles of love and peace and joy. Let’s walk through this world even in its most insane moments surrendering our fears to God. Together, we can experience a heart that always beats calmly and a mind that believes, not in how things look, but in how things are in God.

Let’s transcend our five little senses and look for more. Imagine the exquisite taste of delicious joy and breathing in the lovely scent of Holy Love. Imagine hearing only the sound of happiness and healing and seeing calm and quiet peace in every moment. Imagine the feel of angels’ wings wrapping themselves protectively around us as they whisper reassuringly, “You are safe now. Let fear go and feel your spirit fly with us.”

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.

OUR REAL JOB

“My happiness and my function are one.” A Course In Miracles

“I will do my real job today.”

If we think of God as the Employer and ourselves as the employee and the product as Happiness, then unless we manufacture Happiness in its highest sense, we are not doing our job. It’s time to set aside our small aspirations involving grievances, sadness and anger, judgment and guilt or worldly things and earthly power and ask God what the real goal is.

God’s Office is always open. His Plan is the only One that will serve the world and provide the Holy Health Care, the perfect Child Care, the amazing Salary and all the Abundance and Benefits that Heaven can offer.  All we need do is agree to His Terms and choose Happiness as the product we want to invest in. Happiness will make us rich in every way.

We are not meant to serve in our own self designed cubicles. We are meant to serve in limitless and eternal joy. Let’s quietly close the door on our belief in failure from the past and open the window of opportunity in this moment. As we make the conscious choice to make happiness our real job, the world will change before our eyes.  Now, we will live and work in a happy place created from our own thoughts. And our real Boss will provide Bonuses that will delight us. We will be amazed at how easy it is to create Happiness. And how quickly sharing it with others will magnify and increase it for ourselves.

TIME FOR A LITTLE GOOD NEWS

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

“I am ready for some good news today.”

HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS! Everything we do in fear, in anger and in sadness, we can do a different way.  We can fill our minds with Love so our paths are purposeful and helpful.  Sadness is not compassion. Anger is not kindness. Fear is not healing. These are emotions that block our power and keep us from being truly helpful in the world.

We can allow miracle feelings and kind and compassionate thoughts to live stream constantly through our consciousness.  We can let God judge us and all others with His purest Love. We can turn our anger and sadness, our stress and our sickness over to Him and then happily see His world emerge through ours. We can ask Him how best to be of service in every situation instead of deciding on our own.

We can watch the news and read the newspapers with Love instead of fear.  We can use the news as opportunities to bless everyone and pray for healing in the lives of all who suffer. In becoming sad, judgmental or fearful at the news, we are not being the channels for healing that God needs us to be because we are blocking Him from using us as His healers and teachers in the world. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care. In fact the opposite is true. It means we must care enough to give the world and our suffering brothers and sisters to God for true correction and true healing.

But first we have to pay attention to our feelings and our actions and all the voices in our heads.  Change can only happen when we are willing to take responsibility for our lives, our thoughts, our feelings and our actions and decide, with conviction, to choose a better way. And the only way that’s better is God’s way.

It is when it is lifted up and shined away, as darkness always is by light, that God can make the corrections for us that balance and harmonize our spirit so peace can flow freely.  And so with a calm and quiet heart and easy breathing, we say,  “Let every voice but God’s be still in me.” ACIM And then we ask Him, ”How can I help?”

CHOOSE AGAIN

“Choose once again if you would take your place among the saviors of the world…” A Course In Miracles

“Let me choose forgiveness, kindness and joy again today.”

The beauty of our power from God is that we can choose again. In every moment of every day and in every relationship and every experience we can make another choice

If we have felt fear or anger, guilt or sadness or judgment we can ask for help to see everything and everyone differently. 

“Forgive and you will see this differently.” A Course In Miracles

When we ask for help we must then be still and listen for the answers. God always has the answer and it’s always the right answer; the only answer.

God’s answer brings peace and joy to us and to all. His answer floods our hearts with pure love. This is the Love that guides us on our path and lights our way to fulfilling our holy destiny.

This is the Love that shows us a different world from the one we thought we knew. This Love rewrites our story giving us not just a happy ending, but a glorious beginning and middle too. This Love ensures there is no ending just a happy now.

All the answers to all our questions are in God. His Answer shows us that our questions are too small. His Answer encompasses our Holy truth and gently guides us on a path where only miracles are found.

As we take His hand and offer ourselves to Him for guidance, words dissolve, concerns are gone, darkness disappears and only Light remains. In that stillness that fills our being, we understand what we didn’t understand before. All things are not only possible, but are actually accomplished.  Forgive and we will see that this is so.  “Let me recognize my problems have been solved.” A Course In Miracles

And all we need do is choose again.

WALK IN BEAUTY

“…the strength of the body will always be enough to serve all truly useful purposes.” A Course In Miracles

“I will walk in my own beauty today.”

We are not our bodies, we are spirit. But we have a responsibility to love and care for our bodies. Our bodies are here to serve a purpose in helping make the world a better place and our lives easier if we allow it. We must enjoy our body and value it, not for its size or shape or gender, but for its true design. 

Our smiles can express kindness and love.
Our voices can speak for those who can’t.
Our eyes can radiate joy.
Our hands can offer help and hope.
Our arms can hug a child or a frightened friend.
Our feet can take us wherever we are needed.

Our hearts and minds can be open to great possibilities for joy and love. 

We should eat with healthy enjoyment. We should exercise until it feels good. We should play with delight and laugh freely. We should speak gently, breathe deeply and think lightly. We should work with purpose and a sense of fun. We should take the time to smell the sweet alyssum, breathe in the beauty and feel the textures of life. When we use our bodies in this way, we will always be beautiful.

May your body carry you wherever God wants you today.

KEEP THE FAITH

 “…peace without faith will never be attained, for what is dedicated to truth as its only goal is brought to truth by faith.” A Course In Miracles

“I will keep the faith and ask God for guidance today.”

In times like these all we can do is keep the faith.

Have faith that no matter how it looks Love is more powerful than fear.

Have faith that God is here quietly making corrections.

Have faith that forgiveness heals and kindness works miracles.

Have faith that we must be the peacemakers, the eye of the storm, the quiet center where healing flows through.

Have faith that because violence breeds violence getting angry only makes things worse.

Have faith that even if our heart is broken God can and will mend it.

Have faith that our thoughts are powerful, so we must choose them wisely.

Have faith that healing love is flowing through this world at a powerful rate even if we can’t see it with the naked eye.

Have faith that a PANDEMIC is just a pandemic and this too shall pass.

Have faith that losing a loved one, though excruciatingly painful for us, is simply a transition for them.

Have faith that the past, the present and the future are in God’s Hands if we will give them all to Him.

Have faith, not in the insanity of the world, but in the Sanity of a Loving, Living God.

“And so you will see by your experience that you have laid the past and present in God’s Hands, because the past will punish you no more, and future dread will now be meaningless.”  A Course In Miracles

TOGETHER

“You see what you expect and you expect what you invite.” A Course In Miracles

“I will walk in the light of my own holiness today.”

To truly see yourself, don’t look in the mirror, look inside your heart. Don’t measure yourself by the opinions and judgments of others. Measure yourself by God’s Grace and His Light in you. That is where your beauty lies; where your kindness, your empathy and your generosity abide. This is where your voice sings arias to the Angels and you are able, in calm and quiet peace, to listen to the silence of God’s own Heart speaking constantly of your holiness.

You are an artist of the spirit, a poet of the soul, a creation of delight and joy, at one with all the Universe. Inside you Love lives, a constant flame to be fanned by trust and shared with all. And it is there that healing is always happening.

Look and laugh and rejoice at your true nature, your real Self and see your Truth. If you find your vision blocked by fear, anger, sadness, anxiety, worry … LOOK AGAIN!  And choose another way of seeing. Remember, we see what we invite or allow in to our space. So invite in Truth and be grateful for your sweet essence and your holy presence.  The truth will set you free.

Now you are an instrument of peace and a teacher of God.  Now you are serving your purpose as a healer of the world.

Invite and see this: “I am the light of the world.”  A Course In Miracles  Repeat often.

May you walk in the light of your own holiness 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!

OH, JOY!

 “Joy is eternal.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will remember my joy today.”

“Here does the joy of God belong to you.” A Course In Miracles

A simple word, only three letters and the sound, a single syllable. Let’s say it in our mind.  Now, aloud.  What does it invoke for us?  Children running through a sprinkler on a hot summer day?  Hear their squeals. Let the sound of their laughter fill our mind. Watch them jump and splash with joy. 

Now, let’s go deeper.  Let’s be the child running through the sprinkler.  Let’s be the one laughing and squealing and running and jumping and splashing.  Let’s be the joyous one.  What does it feel like when there is nothing but joy in our experience?  What is it like when our mind is filled to overflowing with joy? What is it to be in this moment where nothing exists but the purest joy in our heart?

Let’s breathe in joy and breathe out joy.  We can’t help but smile.  We can’t stop our laughter.  We can’t keep the feeling from filling us and flowing out into the world.  We want to jump for joy.  We want to leap and dance and sing with joy. Let every thought but joy be still in us today! OH JOY!

“God’s peace and joy are mine. God’s peace and joy are yours. Today we will accept them, knowing they belong to us.” A Course In Miracles

TRUTH ANSWERS EVERY CALL FOR HELP

“Truth answers every call we make to God
Responding first with miracles and then
Returning us to be itself.” A Course In Miracles.

Every prayer of the heart is answered clearly and instantly though we may not realize it. The noise and density of the world and our clouded thinking may keep us from our answers. Our personal expectations and our fears limit our hearing almost to nothing at times.

Nevertheless God’s Truth shines loud and clear even when we’re unaware. Only a calm and quiet heart and an open, accepting mind can hear the answers that we seek so desperately. And yet they are as near as the air we breathe and live constantly inside. Just like God Himself.

We are reassured that hallucinations of an insane world end with God. From this place of Love we see what wondrous ideas come to us that we have never thought before; answers to questions, solutions to problems that we kept hidden because we forgot to let Him be our guide. There is a loving answer for everything.  No exceptions.  But to access the answers we must be quiet; listening and watchful for the miracles all around us. “God is only Love and therefore so am I.” A Course In Miracles

Our clouded thinking makes us forget. “You are entitled to miracles because of what you are. You will receive miracles because of what God is. And you will offer miracles because you are one with God.”  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!

A PRAYER FOR EVERY DAY

“Who would go anywhere, if peace of mind is already complete?” A Course In Miracles

“I will live in this moment, Now.”

A prayer for this and every day.

Now that I’m on the other side of yesterday, I feel the possibilities for peace.
Now that I’m on this side of tomorrow, I see the hopefulness for happiness.
Now that I am in the center of this moment, I see the certainty of Love.

Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow isn’t here.
Now is all there is.

“God is with me. He is my Source of life, the life within, the air I breathe, the food by which I am sustained, the water which renews and cleanses me. He is my home, wherein I live and move; the Spirit which directs my actions, offers me Its Thoughts; and guarantees my safety from all pain. He covers me with kindness and with care, and holds in love the Son He shines upon, who also shines on Him. How still is he who knows the truth of what God speaks today!” ACIM

NOW is the Home of Love and Peace and Joy.
I want to stay Home today.  Amen.
