This year more than ever, I am willing to be grateful for what I’ve learned. I’ve learned quite a lot. I’m always learning. I experience a combination of discovering truth that i already knew, but had forgotten, mixed with discovering and learning through my experiences.
I’ve gone so many years without taking stock and without really considering how much I’ve learned from my challenges. I’ve gone year after year, experiencing challenges, but barely noticing what I’ve learned through those experiences.
Challenges can be so intense, why not pause to really appreciate what they’re for?
Every difficulty, every experience and every occurrence in our lives is for our learning – and for the opportunity to be truly helpful to ourselves and others. ACIM tells us everything in our life is “gently planned by one whose only purpose is our good.”
When we choose to be grateful and to open our mind and our hearts to the experiences there are to learn and grow it’s a miracle. When we accept the miracle, then we don’t have to repeat the challenge. When we hold onto resentment, regret, blame, hurt and other thoughts that block the flow of Love, we block the miracles too.
A Course in Miracles reminds us that “the miracle substitutes for learning that might have taken thousands of years.” In other words, one moment of extending Love, having a realization of the Truth, will actually eliminate thousands of years of learning through experience. As ACIM tells us all the time, its purpose is to save time we’d otherwise spend in suffering.
I’ve learned that if I don’t accept things as they are, then I cannot harvest the learning from my experiences and I have to continue to repeat them. Perhaps I’ve spent thousands of years repeating the same lessons because I was judging that everything was bad and wrong instead of realizing the opportunities to extend Love and have compassion.
That was then and this is now.
In this now, I choose Love. I choose to live a miraculous life and to harvest the learning from my experiences. And I choose to contribute to the end of all suffering. This gives my life purpose and meaning.
I feel that 2018 will have a LOT for me to learn and to be grateful for and I’m excited for every bit of it. I’m glad we’ll be sharing this year together!

If you’re willing, I’m willing. If this is right for you, you WILL know it. In my year-long Masterful Living Course, a number of people have healed their depression gone off anti-depressants, let go of old hurts and sadness that has troubled them for many years. They have accomplished what they never believed they could do, because they gave themselves a chance, and they didn’t give up. You can do it, too.
