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... Read More

A Blessing In The Challenge

July 20, 2022 | COMMENTS

Avoiding Awakening

Holiness

I used to feel trapped inside the mental and emotional patterns that were running me.  I didn’t have a sense of HOW to break out or if I could stick with it if I found the way.  It was discouraging.... Read More

Learning Through Contrast

July 15, 2022 | COMMENTS

Finding the Blessings

Well, Sattva was neutered yesterday, as I wrote in yesterday’s blog.  It all went very well.  I picked him up at the end of the day and he was awake and could have really used some cuddling, but we both... Read More

Sattva’s Getting Neutered

July 13, 2022 | COMMENTS

We Cannot Attack A Little

July 12, 2022 | COMMENTS
One of the things I love about A Course in Miracles is it’s clarity.  I also love it's simplicity.  It says the same things over and over again, a thousand different ways in order to help us hear it just once.  ... Read More

Holding A Higher Vibration

One of the most difficult and painful patterns I had in my life was a vicious circle.  I couldn’t figure out how to get out of it.  It was sticky like a spider web.  It started when I was a... Read More

Living In Vain

July 9, 2022 | COMMENTS
Have you ever felt that you've been laboring "in vain?”   I have.  Many, many times.   It was only because I wasn't living in LOVE.   STUDYING spiritual principle and LIVING spiritual principle are two different things with completely... Read More

Not Punished

July 8, 2022 | COMMENTS
My message to those who suffer is that you are not being punished. God is not punishing you.   Punishment is an egotistical idea that only leads to more suffering.  We, as Light Workers, must call for the end of punishment.... Read More

Be Playful

Relax. Don’t Do It. Do you remember the Frankie Goes to Hollywood hit, “Relax” from 1984?  I still hear it a few times of year in a store or some place like that.  At the time that song came out I was... Read More

Heaven On Earth

July 6, 2022 | COMMENTS

Let’s Make An Effort

July 5, 2022 | COMMENTS
Another shooting.  Of course it’s senseless.  They’re all senseless, aren’t they? This time at the start of a 4th of July Parade.  Insane.  Of course it’s insane. I keep coming back to the same thing - Love is the answer.... Read More

Inspired Again!

Ego Loses, Everyone Wins

July 3, 2022 | COMMENTS
The violence of this world is often the result of people feeling like a victim and acting out.  People sometimes feel powerless, inadequate, ashamed, hurt and afraid and it festers and ferments until it becomes rage that explodes.   For... Read More

Prosperity Flowing

July 2, 2022 | COMMENTS
Let's invite more Prosperity into our experience, but first, let’s define the term.  I think of Prosperity as being a consistent experience of well being that includes a harmonious experience of life.  It’s a good night’s sleep and good digestion,... Read More

Ego Is A Quitter

July 1, 2022 | COMMENTS
The ego thought system is one that collapses in on itself because it has nothing REAL to sustain it. The ego thought system implodes.  Truth is eternal and unbreakable.  It’s untouched by the effects of time and pressure. Watch your... Read More

Making Plans and More Plans

June 30, 2022 | COMMENTS
In lesson 135 of A Course in Miracles it tells us that “a healed mind does not plan.”  This can be quite confusing for many people.  How do we live without plans?   As I write this, I’m in Poland and later... Read More
