There Is a Thing Called Happiness

by Rev. Susan Comello, O.M.C.

Susan ComelloThere is a thing called happiness. What is it? How do I get it? How do I keep it? Where does it go?

I spent much of my life here looking for happiness — looking, searching, waiting, hoping. When I was a little girl, happiness seemed like something other people had. Other people knew how to do it right, to be happy. I saw Prince Charming rescue the princess and surely that had to be happiness. They even said they lived happily ever after. “Some day my prince will come. Some day, I will be happy.” That’s what kept me going in the seeming endless muck of life which mostly was the opposite of happy. I was sad, confused, disillusioned and lonely.

A Gentle Response to Attack

by Rev. Myron Jones, O.M.C.

Myron JonesI can remember being harsh with my husband when I was married. I would feel attacked by him and I would defend myself. It felt like strength when I defended myself, but it was really weakness. I know now that “In my defenselessness my safety lies” is a wholly true statement. When I would defend myself two things would happen; our relationship would deteriorate a little, and I would feel more vulnerable.

At that time, I wasn’t able to see things differently. It was going to be awhile before I realized the strength of gentleness. I had to learn that everyone is innocent in spite of appearances.

Your Overflowing Love

by Rev. Robert Joseph Thompson, O.M.C.

Bob ThompsonWhen you… reach out to another,
you are reaching in… to you.

So all you do… for others,
you also do… for you.

All that you may ask of me,
you ask for me and you.

And, all that you are giving me,
you also give to you.

It Takes Something

by Rev. Maria Felipe, O.M.C.

Maria FelipeI get asked a lot by my students and clients:

How can I be happy?

How can I no longer suffer?

How can things change in my life?

I always say, “It takes something” from my own experience and those whom I work with. There is a desire to heal, but not really. We still want to judge, we still don’t want to forgive and still want to look for something outside in form to complete us.

Significant Forgiveness Opportunities

by Rev. Larry Glenz, O.M.C.

One thing seems certain in this dream I call my life: There will always be significant forgiveness opportunities presented to me for my continued spiritual growth.

Coaching high school kids has always been a great passion for me. I have been with the same organization for 46 years now — the Lynbrook Owls varsity lacrosse team. Because of my longevity, I have been a witness to many tragedies of young people who transition from this world in their teens and early 20’s.

Once Upon a Time There Was a Hurricane Named Irma

by Colleen Fee, Ministerial Candidate

Colleen FeeThis is a story about a recent experience that never happened. The names have not been changed because the people in the story are innocent.

As a new student of A Course in Miracles, my experience with the teaching, at times, is like a whisper in my ear of that which I have always known. In my life I have found that many times answers for problems have come to me “out of the blue” and even the ability to perform difficult tasks would suddenly manifest when I had not specifically been trained or educated to do them. What I did not realize, until I began studying the Course, is where they came from and how to intentionally access that information.

Following Holy Spirit’s Guidance

by Greg Hesch, Ministerial Candidate

Greg HeschI have been a ACIM student for over 10 years. In the past five years or so I have had several visions that I would someday be helping Pathways of Light. When I sold my house in Wisconsin two years ago, I felt guided to check out St. Augustine Florida, which is 60 miles north of the offices of Pathway’s of Light in Ormond Beach.  While investigating St. Augustine, I called Pathway’s of Light to see if there was anything for students in the Ormond Beach area. They said there was not a POL study group, and that only their office was here. I decided not to visit Ormond, and didn’t feel St. Augustine was right for me.

I then felt guided to La Crosse, Wisconsin, and found a really nice apartment right off of the Mississippi River with a vast network of walking/bicycling trails right outside of the front door. In January of this year, I hired a real estate agent, was pre-approved for a loan and started to look for a home to purchase.

What Will It Take?

by Rev.Paula Richards, O.M.C.

Rev. Paula RichardsAt the assisted living facility where I used to work, one of the memory impaired residents entered a room and closed the door. The problem was, it wasn’t her room. When the housekeeper pointed out her mistake, the resident became belligerent and started to barricade the door.

From the common living room where I was giving a presentation, I could watch what was going on. None of the staff, nor her grown daughter who had been called in, were having any luck convincing the woman that that room was not her home. Because they were being gentle and trying not to further confuse or frighten her, when I left a half hour later, the problem still had not been resolved.

The Messenger

by Rev. Vicki Rostant, O.M.C.

Vicki Rostant“When I respond with Love, I am accepting God’s gift. When I respond with Love, I am channeling God, who is Love, to my brother.”

This insight burst into my mind two days after the POL Ministers check-in meeting on Tuesday. Our sharing included a discussion about the events in Las Vegas two days prior, in the context of there being only two states — Love or a call for Love.

The conversation centered around the truth that, no matter what seems to be happening in the outer world of form, there is only one true way to look at it — it is an expression of Love, or it is a call for Love.

The Power of Devotion

by Rev. Joanne Kraenzle Schneider, PhD, O.M.C.

Rev. Joanne Schneider“Do not underestimate the power of the devotion of God’s Son, nor the power the god he worships has over him. For he places himself at the altar of his god, whether it be the god he made or the God Who created him.” (T-11.VI.5: 1-2)

Question: Inner Wisdom, what is the god I worship?

Answer: The god you worship is the world and everything in it. You are devoted to the world. You are also devoted to what people think of you. You are devoted to meeting expectations because that again ties into what people think of you. And this devotion drives your experience in the world.

The Ten Top Lessons I Learned from Writing a Book

by Rev. Barbara Goodman Siegel, O.M.C.

Barbara SiegelI have been thinking for days about how to write an article about my new book, Finding Your Self in the Mirror: Awakening Through Mirror Affirmations for the 365 Lessons of A Course In Miracles.

What I was guided to do was to try to describe each phase of the writing process and what I learned from each of them in hopes it might help others to follow through with their own inspiration.

As I looked back on the entire three year project, I felt there were very distinct phases to the process which I will try to describe.

The Simplest Journey in the World

by Rev. Kirsty Randle, O.M.C.

Rev. Kirsty RandleA Course in Miracles is the simplest journey in the world. This is because we don’t have to do anything. We just have to be willing, and all the rest is all done for us. What could possibly be simpler than that?

And yet, for me, the Course is also the hardest journey in the world. Here I am, ten years on, showing willingness. Day after day, week after week, year after year, praying, meditating, doing the workbook lessons, studying the Text, attending groups and workshops, maybe getting closer, but never quite arriving at the promised land. Fear, rage, disappointment, shame and guilt are my constant companions, although I wish they weren’t.

So what gives, Holy Spirit, what gives?

“True Forgiveness” Book Review

by Colleen Fee

Colleen FeeAs I move down my path with ACIM and the Holy Spirit, I continue to be grateful for all of the beautiful direction I receive. This month (November, 2017) I celebrated one year of living in Ormond Beach and being in service to Pathways of Light with Mary and Robert. I am also blessed to be taking the ministerial training with Pathways’ courses. A few weeks ago I was working with Course 203, An Introduction To A Course In Miracles, that included a recording of a Gary Renard workshop. Much of the information Gary shared was about forgiveness and as I pondered it over the next day or so, I asked Holy Spirit for help with true forgiveness. I had a basic understanding of how The Course defines true forgiveness — to overlook what never happened and release all illusions — but I wanted to really understand it and again asked for Holy Spirit’s help.

Pause for Correction, Drop the Rejection

by Rev. Mary Gerard Lenihan, O.M.C.

Mary LenihanI never truly recognized the unique power of gratitude until I found myself home alone sick on Thanksgiving. I thought I would lounge around, watch some television, but my Helpful Self had other plans… so what’s new? As I paused to contemplate my upset about the situation at hand, I became sure that it was no accident that I was sick and home alone for the holiday. Furthermore, I know from using the Pause Practice in everyday life, that this is just the kind of situation in which there is a hidden treasure awaiting my willingness to be gifted.
