The Light Has Come

IMG_0597

The Metaphysical/Spiritual book called A Course In Miracles contains a year long workbook study that offers a lesson for each day.

You can start the lessons anytime you want but be sure to start at lesson #1, as they follow a mind training process that is powerful and helps us see through the world and the illusions that make us sad, angry, depressed, anxious, happy at times, sadness over death, destruction, injustice and more.  I believe the Course has brought many back from the brink of suicide and hopelessness because it did for me.

Would you like to forgive the world?  It may not seem that you need to but the world has a way of showing us what we dislike as well as what we like.  The world is dualistic.  It contains the opposites that we judge as good or bad!  We can give up our suffering by  forgiving everything and everyone and when we do we ultimately know the inner Light that is our true identity!

Below is a link to the lessons.  Today’s lesson #75.The Light Has Come.

The lessons can be read but they are recorded so you have the option of sitting back, closing your eyes and have the lesson read to you!

How is Peace Possible in your world?

img_3421

“Peace now belongs here, because a Thought of God has entered.  What else but a Thought of God turns hell to Heaven merely by being what it is?”  M. 11.How is Peace Possible in this World? P.4.8 & 9.

The above quote from the Manual of A Course In Miracles can relax our tortured mind if we remember that Peace is the Thought of God.  The memory of God is in our mind and we, mankind, have denied it but it is impossible to destroy that memory. Mankind has forgotten who we are.  We are of God, we are all His children.  We are therefore related because we came from the same “Father” who loves us equally.  We are One.

This is how peace is possible in this world:  Thinking of God, remembering God IS and that you are LOVED, we are ALL LOVED EQUALLY.  We are ONE.  Your mind is a judgment FREE ZONE!!

We are related beyond the color of skin; culture; religion, country of origin; language or sex.  We are One.

Since God is mysterious compassionate all encompassing eternal LOVE and we are His offspring, then we inherited the same attributes of compassionate eternal love.  This means we will never really die – our bodies will, but our true SPIRIT SELF is eternal like God.

No one can exist or has ever lived that is not of God.  Our task is to remember who we are and we do that by ceasing all judgment.

Ask yourself whether your judgment or the Word of God is more likely to be true. For they say different things about the world and things so opposite that it is pointless to try to reconcile them.  God offers the world salvation; your judgment would condemn it.  God says there is no death; your judgment sees but death as the inevitable end of life.  God’s Word assures you that He loves the world; your judgment says it is unlovable.  Who is right?  For one of you is wrong.” M. 11. 4. 2.8.

“Peace is impossible to those who desire war.  Peace is inevitable to those who offer peace.  How easily, then, is your judgment of the world escaped!  It is not the world that makes peace seem impossible.  It is the world you see (through the eyes of the ego) that is impossible. Yet has God’s Judgment on this distorted world redeemed it and made it fit to welcome peace. 

Peace now belongs here because a Thought of God has entered.” M. 11.4.1-8

Love or Hate – which will it be?

IMG_0686

During this political season you probably “hate” one candidate and “love” the other?

Right?

We harbor both within our Mind however, our true identity is attached to light and love.  Therefore “hate” is the intruder into your beautiful mind.

But you are the boss!  You can decide not to hate anyone – including yourself.  You have that POWER!  You are the decider!

Say: “I refuse to hate myself or anyone – it makes me miserable and I let all the grudges and judgments GO!”  Really!  You can do this.  Why do you hold onto the old grudges that make you miserable.  Do you like being miserable?  Nope –  so let it ALL Go!

It is that EASY!  TRY IT!!

For example – Decide you will be happy for the next hour!  Look at the clock – write down the time.  State your decision….I will let go of thinking about _______ and worrying about ______ or fretting about ________.  I will spend the next hour releasing and breathing and focusing on being pleasant.

The spiritual book, A Course In Miracles advocates forgiveness for inner peace.   However the Course sees forgiveness as looking at whatever or whomever is bothering us and finding it within ourselves.  We project onto others what is in fact within our mind and thoughts.  So if you are angry with Donald Trump because he is a rude bully – find the rude bully in you.  See the “content” and aspects of being a bully and rude within – even if it is only in the way you “think” but would never say aloud, and sure enough, it is there so now we can let it go.  If you hate Hilary Clinton because she is not trustworthy, look within.  Are you trustworthy?  Really?  When were you not trustworthy?  Don’t go to guilt because that is ego territory.  In “looking” you are forgiving  and awakening. Try it with all those worries and little annoyances you listed above.  Then you are free!

Try it!  You have the Power and the Time is NOW!

If you or a friend are considering suicide please do one little thing:

Read Lesson 360 from A Course In Miracles

LESSON 360

Peace be to me, the holy Son of God.
Peace to my brother, who is one with me.
Let all the world be blessed with peace through us.

1 Father, it is Your peace that I would give, receiving it of You. I am Your Son, forever just as You created me, for the Great Rays remain forever still and undisturbed within me. I would reach to them in silence and in certainty, for nowhere else can certainty be found. Peace be to me, and peace to all the world. In holiness were we created, and in holiness do we remain. Your Son is like to You in perfect sinlessness.  And with this thought we gladly say “Amen.”

And visit http://www.circleofa.org and click on “Miracle” and read the lessons that tell you the TRUTH about you.  You are God’s child not the ego’s.  You are a Holy Son/Child of God having the experience of being and living in a body and are here to learn lessons, forgive and be joyous!

 

 

 

 

Peace of Mind is an internal matter

IMG_9619

 

“Peace of Mind is clearly an internal matter.

It must begin with your own thoughts and then

extend outward.  It is from your peace of Mind

that a peaceful perception “of the world arises

A Course In Miracles Lesson 34.  I could see Peace Instead of this.

W. 34 P. 1.2 – 4

We think peace comes from anywhere but our own Holy Mind.  We seek

peace in places of solitude, a quiet path through the woods or perhaps

having tea with a friend.  But it is our thoughts that either create peace or

chaos.  We may have a quick judgmental thought and then realize it does

not bring peace.  When that happens just notice it and forgive.  Don’t go

to guilt.  The Course says the “ego always speaks first” and it does!  So

What?!  Get back to into the peace of the Right Mind and tell yourself

“I could see peace in this situation instead of what I now see in it” and

peace will return.

It may be hard to believe that peace comes from within yourself but

watch your thoughts and you will be surprised and realize that

YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF WHAT YOU THINK!  IT IS UP TO YOU!

http://www.acim.org – Workbook Lessons – Lesson 34.

I can be hurt only by my thoughts!

IMG_8628

 

We think all sorts of thoughts throughout the day – some kind some not.

If we watch, every now and then a stupid or hateful thought marches

across our mind.  “What was that?”

It was a call to forgive and to remember: “I am not separate from God.”

I don’t have to believe my ego’s ranting and raging but I must LOOK!

Look and be cognizant.  Thoughts are neither good nor bad.

Wait…..don’t try and psychoanalyze the thought.  Just look with the

Holy Spirit or Jesus and say “I’m not at peace, I’d like another way to look at this.”

Now Wait……another thought will come.  Be patient.

Do not go to GUILT.  That would be the ego speaking.  It’s whole reason for

being is to keep the guilt going, the separation going and the pain going.

Just say…..”I prefer to remember I am one with God….no matter what the

circumstances look like.”  Circumstances lie.

Suicide Hurts

IMG_9782

If you are contemplating suicide know that you are not alone.

Everyone has thought about it. We know at some level that this world is
not our TRUE home but you cannot get to your TRUE home until you learn
the lessons you came here to learn.

So get busy!

Don’t listen to your ego and GIVE UP!

The ego will drive you crazy!

Don’t listen!

There is another voice in your head and it is the voice for love.

The ego hates it and will try and drown it out.

You don’t have to listen to it. You have a MIND that can say:

“NO EGO!”

This old snag of a tree is like our ego thoughts – all tangled and old and withered!
