We all have Self hatred and by the Glory of Jesus there is a cure.
How do we know that we have self hatred? By our judgements. If I am judging someone as a stuck up conceited so and so, guess who holds that belief about herself? Moi!
Whatever anyone practiced or practices to bring them closer to God is needed. In the past, religion played a very important role. It’s about community, fellowship and devotion.
In his ground-breaking book on depression The Noonday Demon, Andrew Solomon used the analogy of the kudzu vine wrapping itself around an oak to choke out its life as a way of describing the debilitating life-draining ability of depression.
The past few weeks have been quite an adventure for us. As we are moving into 2009, a quickening is occurring. The lesson that is here for us now involves allowing for a greater willingness to pay attention in the present moment to Inner Guidance. This lesson involves a willingness to let go of the past and let go of the future. This lesson seems quite challenging at times. But it only seems challenging because it is forcing us to let go of mental habits that in the past have seemed “normal” to us. Each day we are being very gently asked to let go of the world as we have known it in the past. We are being asked to return to our Source and come from a state of mind that sees past the world to the real world, the world of Oneness, the world of one, united Love.

We would like to share with you about a recent significant event in our lives. We received a copy of the new book published by Project Healing Press: The Book ON… and Jesus answers.
Having spent my whole life living on Long Island, just outside New York City, spending this Thanksgiving in the American heartland of Iowa was a truly unique experience and one that I will never forget. My 26 year old son, Kevin, has been living there for the past 5 months, and it was there that my wife, Laura, and I experienced the joy of a true miracle that comes from turning all problems over to the One Who knows the Truth.
Yesterday I got a call from a young woman asking for help. She was so deeply depressed that she could barely talk on the phone. It started me thinking. What was the best way to help her? What was the best advice I could give? When someone hits rock bottom, whether from addiction, emotional problems or tragedy, where do they start to heal? How can they pick themselves up off the floor and get back on the right track? It seems to me that the best way I can help others in trouble is to tell them about how I healed — what worked for me.
While pondering over what I could submit to the Pathways of Light Miracles News Magazine, my beautiful wife suggested I write about my recent experience re-roofing our family mountain home in Montana. It sounded simple enough — hard work and beautiful scenery. But what does this have to do with the healing of the mind? In a word, everything!
Have you ever seen those drawings often used as perception exercises in some personal growth workshops? They are shown to the participants while being asked: “What do you see here?”
I think the opportunity to forgive is an opportunity to grow. We are a Spirit having a human experience in which there will be human mistakes. I like ACIM Chapter 23, section IV pg 496 on “Above the battleground.” This is where I can see the idea of forgiving myself for those thoughts. “Be lifted up, and from a higher place look down upon it. Here in the midst of it, it does seem real.
My sinlessness ensures me… freedom forever from all thought of loss; complete deliverance from suffering. And only happiness can be my state, for only happiness is given me. What must I do to know all this is mine? I must accept Atonement for myself, and nothing more. God has already done all things that need be done. And I must learn I need do nothing of myself, for I need but accept my Self, my sinlessness, created for me, now already mine, to feel God’s Love protecting me from harm.
Blessed are they who want to be happy because happiness is already theirs!
Blessed are they who want to be divinely cared for because they have always been!
As I sit quietly today and go to my garden, I see a horn of plenty in the center of my garden and all around it are beautiful rows of lush green plants. As I sit on my bench looking at this beauty, Jesus sits beside me and tells me that the horn of plenty is to remind me of all the bounty and abundance I have had this past year. It is huge and overflowing.
My husband and I visited our friend of 57 years. I was fourteen and a half when she hired me to clean her house, because her artist hands could not take the hard cleaning solutions. The house was almost new, and every room was decorated with her artistry: china paintings, porcelain dolls, oil paintings, flower arrangements and at Christmas time, 220 hand made beaded ornaments that sparkled on a revolving silver aluminum tree. To me it was a dream home.
