A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson #34 is “I could see peace instead of this.”
In this lesson, Jesus tells us, “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.”
Peace begins with us.
It BEGINS in our minds. Or, it seems to dissipate in our minds. We choose.
I find it so helpful to remember that my natural state is Peace.
If I’m not experiencing Peace, it’s because I’m choosing something else.
When the world seems to be acting crazy, that’s the time for us to hold to our sanity.
Many people are seeking Peace by trying to manipulate the world to be more peaceful. It’s not a method that works.
We seek not to change the world, but to change our minds about the world in order to be a beneficial presence in the world.
The way that Peace is brought forth is to change our minds.
To discipline our mind. This takes real time and attention, and it absolutely requires that we Partner UP with Spirit to bring it into manifestation.
This is what spiritual practice is all about.
If we don’t deepen our practice when war is threatened, then when will we practice?
If we don’t deepen our practice when our lives are falling apart, then when will we practice?
It’s because we don’t practice that Spirit brings us events and situations that squeeze us so hard that we will finally go to Spirit for the Source of all, or we’ll collapse trying.
We are the deciders of what we will choose.
I choose Peace today and every day.
I ain’t going to study war no more.
Always remember: the ends are in the means.
We cannot get to Peace through war.
ACIM tells us, “You recognize you want the goal. Are you not also willing to accept the means?”
To have Peace, be Peace.
We cannot attack, blame and shame those who aren’t peaceful and remain peaceful. We cannot have Peace while we’re attacking.
Let us BE the Peace from now on.
Let us develop the courage and strength to BE peaceful and share the benefits with the world.
Now is our time to be disciplined in our minds so that we can rise and shine and be truly helpful. There is no better time than NOW!
Living a peaceful life is just one of the important and valuable things we practice in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the sense of separation that keeps us disconnected from Spirit. We cultivate the relationship with Spirit. We transform the most painful parts of our life.
