HOW CAN I HELP?

“The teachers of God have trust in the world, because they have learned it is not governed by the laws the world made up. It is governed by a power that is in them but not of them. It is this power that keeps all things safe. It is through this power that the teachers of God look on a forgiven world. When this power has once been experienced, it is impossible to trust one’s own petty strength again. 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

We are the teachers of God. So how do we change the world? How do we stop the wars and violence and hate and anger? The divisiveness and the judgment? How do we rid the world of negativity and fear? It’s impossible on our own. The simple beauty is that we don’t need to change the world, we only need to change ourselves. It can all be done in our own small world.

It’s as simple as being kind to our neighbor, loving and respecting our parents, blessing the guy that cuts us off in traffic, letting someone ahead of us in line at the grocery store, smiling at a stranger, playing with a child, laughing at our mistakes. It’s as simple yet powerful as forgiving someone from our past, praying for peace, envisioning a healed world.

It’s as easy as lighting a candle, putting on some quiet music and meditating for 10 minutes. Or stilling our minds for a moment in the midst of our day. It’s paying an honest compliment to someone who needs a boost in confidence or giving encouragement to another who needs to be lifted up a bit. It’s seeing the light in each other instead of pointing out each other’s mistakes. It’s taking an instant to bless the world and everyone in it.

Creative kindness is something we can all do and takes no more time and effort than brushing our teeth or washing our hands. And it can be done while we are brushing our teeth or washing our hands or at any other time throughout the course of our day. So simple and yet the effects are far reaching. The healing energy that comes from our small, loving acts and thoughts and words really do affect the greater world. We may not immediately see it or feel it, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Every bit of Love energy we offer is accepted by God as a blessing of healing for everyone. Our gift to God is our trust that this is true.

Sometimes the results are dramatic and intense, but more often they are subtle and may not even be recognized by us. But that doesn’t make it any less powerful and true. And the more of us that join together in being God’s helpers, the more quickly will the world be healed.

The world will change, not from our own efforts, but from the Power of the Strength of God through us. It is through God that our efforts have the power to heal and save the world. And He will tell us exactly what to do, what to think and what to say when and where and to whom, to make it all happen.

We only have to be willing and to believe and to ask God, “How can I help You?”

  1. Dear Cousin Cheryl, I am so happy to be connecting with you. Thank you for your kind thoughts about my writing. As you know, I’ve been a writer all my life so it is only natural that God would use me to write for Him now. I find I do my best work when I allow Him to write through me. So in these words is the wisdom of God with the limitations of Sharie. But I try my best to limit my limitations and allow His wisdom. And I only know I feel at peace when I am serving Him in any capacity. Thank you for all you do and for all you are in the world as well. Love you, Sharie
