Loving thoughts are the only thoughts that are real and true. They point the way to the experience of Love Itself. They are reminders of who we are. They can only be experienced in this present moment. Loving thoughts, being real, do not exist in the past or future because there is no past or future, only the Eternal Now.

There was once a boy named Barret. Barret was a happy boy, at least that’s how he remembers himself. The times of sadness, envy bitterness and unfulfilled plans had receded into the dim recesses of time, easily outshone by memories of happiness that were not the only thing he experienced. His illusory past of ‘only happiness’ served well his desire to feel diminished by the circumstances in his life currently. How could now not feel less than ideal when an imaginary idyllic childhood stays in the background, overshadowing the ideas he had about his life? When Barret allowed himself to see how he used his past as a shield against experiencing the happiness under the fear, the importance that he had given it became less pressing.

Through a process of inner dictation, Regina Dawn Akers scribed The Holy Spirit’s Interpretation of the New Testament: A Course in Understanding and Acceptance (NTI). Now you can listen to Regina Dawn Akers and Laurent Elie Levy share first hand how they are applying NTI in their daily lives. Hear the group interaction, questions and answers. You will want to listen to this series again and again to strengthen and accelerate your awakening.
As you may know, in November of 2007, we received guidance that Pathways of Light was to move to Florida. Many steps needed to happen for that transition to occur. The residence was renovated and the property has been listed for sale. While the property is still for sale, we have taken another step toward following through on the guidance from Spirit.
Note from Robert and Mary Stoelting:
John Hutkin and Rev. Mary Gerard Lenihan are the publishers of the remarkable newly published The Book ON… and Jesus answers. In the following interview they share with us about how they came across the scribed book, The Mirror on Still Water and how this led to their working with the scribe Joel Wright to get The Book ON ready for publication.
They also share about how Mary Gerard Lenihan received the inspiring book Visions of Illumination and how Jesus is leading both John and Mary to teach through demonstration by handing over all judgments to the Holy Spirit to see everything differently. They also share about an upcoming workshop WNYHOO (The World Needs Your Help One-to-One NOW)
Robert: How did you find out about Joel Wright and his work?
One morning as I sat reading from The Book ON, I felt so comforted by Jesus. The chapter I had just read was one where Jesus was asking us again to please not put him apart from us. He asked us to see him as one with ourselves. He said, “ I am your sister/brother, and am part of you.” It reminded me of a place in A Course in Miracles where Jesus says, “If you only knew Who walked beside you, fear would be impossible.”
Take the book to a deeper level in this workshop “ON”
given by Rev. Sharyn Zenz and Rev. Larry Glenz June 13-14, 2009
Don’t miss this two-day experiential workshop where Sharyn and Larry will guide you with Holy Spirit’s lead to find answers to a multitude of questions on any topic or concern.
Recently, my mind has been clouded with thoughts about the Lupus I seemed to have asked for in my dream. This morning I had softened to allow in the following message from Spirit: I see the Light that you are — you are so loved.
I was led by Spirit to be a vendor at the Spirit-Mind-Body fair in Topeka, Kansas. My good friend, Linda and her dear husband, Don and I set up a very nice booth offering massage, Young Living essential oil, Reiki, ACIM, and Pathways of Light information.
The following prayer formed itself over time as I, once again, guided by Holy Spirit, studied the opening sections of ACIM, specifically chapters 1 and 2, over several weeks. While reflecting on the content of these chapters, the (traditional) Lord’s Prayer kept coming up in my mind. I was doing a lot of walking during this time and every time it came up, the words kept changing and re-arranging themselves. After a couple of weeks, it felt whole and complete.
So, I am at the ACIM conference in San Francisco, listening to speakers talk about the power of trust and the power of God in our lives. One speaker in particular stands out to me who kept saying over and over in song format, “I am sustained by the love of God, I am sustained by the love of God, I am sustained by the love of God.” Well, I was feeling the peace and the joy until the morning I was supposed to leave. I check my e-mail quickly as I’m leaving with my packed bags and I read a message from Continental Airlines that says my flight is canceled.
I took a trip to a metaphysical book store in my area. I was hoping to find a specific book I was quite excited about. As I drove there, I was enjoying my sense of expectation and the fact that it was a very beautiful day. When I arrived at the store, I perceived it to be very noisy, and immediately made a judgement about the fact. From that moment on and for the whole time I was there I kept choosing to judge over and over again. I judged the people who worked there, those who were buying, and all that was going on. My mind became inundated with ego opinions and I started feeling very uncomfortable.
You know, I wasn’t comfortable all the time, even at the ACIM conference in San Francisco this winter. Much of the time the ego was focused on the differences I perceived, like old or young, physically beautiful or not, vibrant or passive, large or small, interesting or boring. Those differences among us entertained the ego for me all weekend. The speakers all had the same overall topic — Blessings, Abundance, and Grandeur — but the presentations seemed very different indeed.
Mary: This morning I had an image of taking all my thoughts that I recognized were ego and putting them on God’s altar. As I was mentally doing that, I heard, “Put your image of yourself on that altar also.” I did that and jumped onto the altar, along with all the ego thoughts. What happened was, everything disappeared. The self I had identified with was gone. This left only my true Self, which was abstract truth and Love.
Toward the end of 2008 I ended up traveling for work for approximately six weeks. During that time I was able to spend many quiet hours studying course 901: Introduction to Miracles Practice. The experience was amazing and I felt I had reached a different level of connection with the Holy Spirit. I was overjoyed.
