“We go to God, and the path is straight. Only if we attempt to wander can there be delay, and needless wasted time on thorny byways.” A Course In Miracles

We often choose the wrong way because the right way looks wrong to us. It’s not until we have made our choice and seen our mistake that we choose again. Or just as often, we keep on the wrong path trying to force and manipulate it into being the right path. This is exhausting and never works.

Sometimes things don’t work out simply because it’s the wrong place or the wrong person or the wrong time. We can struggle to do what we believe is right for us our entire life and be tired and unfulfilled and confused at the end of it. Or we can just learn whatever we can learn from each experience and then move on. To the ego giving up is a sign of weakness. To God giving up is powerful and honorable and loving. This surrendering is called Forgiveness. It means that we are no longer trusting in our weakness, but in God’s strength. Giving up is not giving in. Many times giving up does not require change in our life, but only change in our thinking. Our life may change or it may not, but certainly our experience of our life will change and for the better.

As we travel the path of most resistance we ask God for help but He doesn’t seem to hear us. We believe this is our path, why isn’t it working? Everyone and everything is blocking our way. If we sincerely want to know the answer, we will hear it. It will come to us as a gentle whisper, a knowing nudge, “It’s not everyone who is mistaken, Dear Heart. It is you. Here is your path. Take my hand and step here.”

“God leads you steadily along the path of freedom, teaching you how to disregard or look beyond everything that would hold you back.” A Course In Miracles

And there before us, clearly lit, is our very own path. Smiling faces greet us and welcoming hands reach out to help us. As soon as we are open and ready the struggle ends. The struggle ends because we have stopped fighting to keep what does not belong to us. There may be struggles in other areas where we are still learning, but never when we are where we need to be. If we follow the signs of our true calling with an open mind and willing heart, life just gets simpler. Peace comes more readily with God as our Guide.

This doesn’t mean we won’t have to work on our path. It doesn’t mean there won’t be challenges. We mustn’t confuse struggle with work or challenge. Struggle is stressful. It’s a useless battle we fight with ourselves. Challenge is strengthening and leads us to the next opportunity for our learning and our growing. Whoever needs us will be brought to us and whoever and whatever we need will be brought to us as well.

Now when we come up against road blocks we ask for help instead of bull dozing through them on our own. It means we grow quiet and smile and breathe as we surrender the blocks so they can either be removed or transformed as we continue to be led on our very own path.

“Indeed, your pathway is more certain still. For it can not be possible to change the course of those whom God has called to Him.” A Course In Miracles


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

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

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