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 then we’re doomed to keep suffering through the same experiences.
Right now, with so many of us self-quarantined or working under stressful conditions, it becomes even more apparent where we’re repeating the same painful experiences, and we can change that. Now.
If repeating the same painful experiences isn’t a motivation to give up judgement, I don’t know what is! Wowzer! It certainly has been a strong motivator for me.
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’ve 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.
I really did FEEL like a spiritual loser, yet 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 was so important for me to understand – not intellectually, but in my heart, in my gut. It was life changing to really GET that.
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 letting go of “false beliefs.”
Let’s be clear, and let’s not just talk.
Talking about healing isn’t the same as doing it.
Intending to be loving without following through is meaningless.
Talk is cheap.
REALLY working with your mind is rigorous. It’s relentless. It’s intense.
My willingness to really choose healing and not just talk about it came from my suffering.
My willingness to heal, opened my mind to where I was blocking the healing, not because I was a failure, but because I was failing to choose truth and Love and Light.
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.
NOW is the time for us to get to WORK.
I talk with so many light workers who have a strong desire to shine their light, and the main thing standing in their way is that they believe they’re not worthy because they haven’t completely healed their life yet.
People think they can’t 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!
I like to celebrate Spirit with friends and so this Sunday I’m starting live-stream Sunday services – open to all. Join me, Lisa Natoli, Jimmy Twyman and more friends. We’ll have a spiritual celebration together and if you can’t join us, you can catch the replay! Because we’re going to be live on video, you’ll have to register to get the details. All are welcome, there’s no charge.
Every day, part of my spiritual practice is to write inspiration and record a prayer to go with it. You can join me in cultivating the willingness that raises us ALL up so we can be truly helpful in this world. Please share my daily prayer with anyone who would find it helpful.
I look forward to our Sunday gathering. It means so much that we can join together and love on each other!
