We have extraordinary inner resources. I have watched the documentary “The Game Changers” twice now. One of the people in the movie is a fellow who is “the strongest man in the world.” He’s earned that title because of his ability to carry a very heavy weight a certain distance. He cultivated this ability, because when he was a child something happened to his loved ones and he felt he wanted to be able to lift a car in order to be able to save someone if he had to. He not only cultivated the ability to do that, he’s done it. Flipping a car is not so hard for him. Amazing and extraordinary things can happen in our lives, and we have inner resources to surmount the challenge.
Sometimes it’s hard to understand what A Course in Miracles means when it tells us in Lesson 135 that everything has been GENTLY planned by One Whose only purpose is our good. How could being attacked by a mountain lion while innocently out for a run and having a battle to the death be gently planned for someone’s good? That seems incredible. Meaning, it seems impossible to believe.
And that’s where faith comes in.
We have to be willing to accept this is the fact of our life. As ACIM also tells us, all things work together for our good, without exception.
To have Peace, we must accept these truths EVEN THOUGH we don’t understand them.
This is the path of opening our mind, to be ABLE to know the truth that liberates from thinking we can’t understand.
Understanding is not required for faith.
Faith reveals KNOWING, which is entirely different from understanding and believing.
I put my faith in Love’s protection.
Let’s focus on being willing to know the truth and let the incredible be as it is. Our knowing of precisely why it would be for that man’s good will come to us if we’re willing. I’d rather hold onto that than constantly be chasing some kind of understanding.
This path is not for everyone, but I’m so glad I found it because it is definitely brought me Peace!
