In the Manual for Teachers for A Course in Miracles, in Section A, Development of Trust in Chapter 4, Jesus tells us something that’s extremely helpful, if we’re willing to accept it as true and not make any exceptions.
He says, “It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters and circumstances are helpful.”
In my history, where I judged almost everything, and everyone, including myself, and where, for so long, I felt threatened by everything, and therefore found everything and almost everyone, lacking, it was impossible to even imagine that all things were helpful.
I thought all things were against me, so how could they possibly be helpful?
You see, my mind could envision what I didn’t believe was there.
I wanted life to be against me.
I wanted to think that things were hard.
I wanted to believe that there was something wrong with me.
It took me a long time to be willing to see how all of my difficulties were my own beliefs, projections, perceptions and choices playing out.
In other words –
I am responsible for what I see, and I choose the feelings I would have.
Once I realized how true that was, then I could actually see the way out of hell was my willingness to be in a place of Love.
Everything is helpful.
Let me receive the gift that is always there for me. May I please find the willingness to align with the divine, and remember the truth in each moment.
Onward and upward!
You can still join me. Stinking’ thinking’ and this kind of self-sabotage is why I created my End My Self-Sabotage Challenge that starts July 20th – the first week is free. I cannot tell you what a great gift it was to give myself – to liberate from that pattern of darkness that ran so much of my life and my choices was worth everything I put into it. I wish I had any clue a decade sooner that I could really break free. I would have gone for it if I’d known. Check out this breakthrough program and see how you can benefit!
