A Course in Miracles tells us that we cannot judge and still hope to learn. Our judgments actually block our learning. If we’re not learning anything then we’re doomed to keep suffering through the same experiences.
If that’s not a motivation to give up judgement, I don’t know what is! Wowzer!
It makes sense when you think about it. If we prefer to think we know what everything is for, are we open to any insights or learning? No, we’re not, because we think we already know whatever is worth knowing. How can we be open to insight when we’ve already made up our mind what everything is for?
Maybe you’re like me and you’e had the experience of repeating the same errors, the same unkindness, the same self-attack, again and again, like a hamster on a wheel? My repeating painful experiences seemed to “prove” to me that I wasn’t very smart, that I wasn’t really learning anything from all my spiritual studies. Nothing could be further from the truth.
My experience didn’t prove my beliefs were correct. Not at all.
In fact, my experience was simply proving to me that my beliefs are made manifest as my experience. It is done unto me as I believe.
This is so important to understand – it’s life changing.
Our unhappy experiences prove that we believe our false beliefs – the truth will set us free from repeating these unhappy experiences. And forgiveness allows us to remember the truth.
In New Thought we say, “change your thinking, change your life.” And we talk about “false beliefs.”
I’ve discovered that it’s more helpful to realize that ALL beliefs are false and truth is true.
How do you know the difference between a belief and a truth?
All beliefs are conditional.
Truth is true for everyone all the time.
Beliefs are constantly shifting and changing, like the sinking sands.
Like God itself, Truth is unchanging – it’s the rock we can safely build our house upon.
I encourage us all to look around our life and see where we might have been misled into thinking that our experiences are proving our beliefs, when, in fact, our experience is just proving the existence of our belief.
When we rid ourselves of the belief – we rid ourselves of the experience. Free at last!
Many, many times I’ve spoken with people who felt helpless and hopeless in their relationships. When they become willing to change their minds and actually make the effort, they experience miracles. It really works!
It’s so important to be willing to prove Spirit works because it does!
How do we rid ourselves of the false beliefs?
It’s actually incredibly simple, when we’re willing to make a change.
If we’re not willing to make a change then we just keep revisiting the same painful lessons.
We cannot judge and hope to learn.
To release the false beliefs, opinions and judgments we offer them to the Higher Holy Spirit Self for healing. We don’t have to figure out HOW to have a healing we simply ALLOW.
Sometimes we might have to release, let go and let God, 1000 or more times if we have a strong attachment to a belief. But if we do it a few times a day, then we’re sure to let it go before too long – ANYTHING is better than struggling with the same painful belief for years and decades and feeling like a failure most of the time.
NOW is the time for us to rise and shine and throw off these meaningless burdens of false beliefs! We have an important mission to be truly helpful to help all beings liberate from false beliefs. We are perfectly designed for this undoing.
I talk with so many light workers who really have a strong desire to shine their light, and the main thing standing in their way is that they’re not worthy because they haven’t completely healed their life yet.
People think they cannot be helpful to another because they’ve still got major challenges, but that’s not true. That’s a false belief. I’ve learned that Spirit will lead and guide to me those I can assist. My job is to be helpful, not to judge my worthiness or anyone else’s!
So many light workers are waiting for something magical to happen in order to feel qualified. We’re already pre-qualified. Why would Spirit direct someone to us that we’re not able to support? That would make God dysfunctional and that’s not even possible.
I’ve found that healing is usually MUCH easier than we might think if we’re willing to work at the level of the mind. No matter what the issue is, something miraculous can be revealed.
Our willingness to Partner UP with the Higher Holy Spirit Self to do the heavy lifting is the thing that works. I know, I’ve proved it and I’ve worked with thousands who have done the same. Let’s be willing to have a healing NOW!
This past week on my weekly A Course in Miracles weekly Radio Show by request, the topic was Finding Happiness In This World. One thing I’ve definitely learned that applies to all of us. When we serve the Light, we find happiness. When we let go of false beliefs, we find happiness was hiding underneath all along. (FYI, you can search through the archive for episodes on whatever topic you’re interested in.)

There’s so much healing that happens when we intend to share our Light with others! When others rise and shine, it’s my answered prayer!
What I know, with every fiber of my being, is that Spirit cannot fail. Only the ego experiences failure. Let’s let go of the very idea of failure. It is a false belief that has no power of its own without our investment in it. We choose Freedom today!
