As hurricane Ida is making its way, I’m thinking of the people in its path and what they’ve been through in the last two decades.  I pray for their Peace and Harmony as well as their safety.  

There are so many areas of the world that are experiencing extreme weather, fires, earthquakes and even volcanoes.

It’s hard to believe that everything works together for our good.  I get it.  So often it sure doesn’t feel like it.  The only way we can get to “it’s all good” is to recognize that “we don’t know what anything is for,” as A Course in Miracles tells us.

Anyone who’s had the experience ofbeing dead wrong about something can understand that we often mistake what things are about.  We’re mostly seeing our projections about things.  

Which leads me to forgiveness.

In order to see, know, feel and hear more clearly, we forgive ourselves for our mistakes in perception, and our projections and that clears the path of our ability to recognize what’s true.

How can we get to the truth if we’re more interested in the story we made up?

A hurricane may blow our house down, but forgiveness will rebuild our mind, our heart and our life.

What I absolutely know, having seen it so many times before, is that these trials and tribulations don’t have to happen, but when they do it’s to motivate us to see that the path of forgiveness is the path of higher intention and that’s the path that leads us to Peace, Joy, Harmony, Prosperity, Wholeness and all good things.

Complaining won’t lead us to higher ground.

Worry won’t take us to a place that’s safer.

Investing in resentments won’t pay any kind of dividend that we’d find valuable.

It’s time for us to change our mind and go the other way with a steadfastness that will steady the ship and put wind in our sails.

War is over if we want it.

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life, for us, if we choose it.

We are the dreamers of the dream.
