Healing Is My Purpose

God’s Messengers

Today, I studied Lesson 350: Miracles Mirror God’s Eternal Love.  To offer them is to remember Him, and through His memory to save the world

What I received from my Higher Holy Spirit Self: God would ask only that we love and forgive each other so that His world can be returned to perfect peace which is what He intended it to be.  He does not want to see us suffer.  He has sent many messengers to tell us that and to try to end the suffering. Some of these messengers are famous, some moderately so, and some not at ll.  God still needs his messengers in all three categories.  So, do not think your job is small.  You were sent to end the suffering of the world with love and forgiveness one person at a time.

Gratitude

Thank you Holy Spirit for this thought.

Awakening Is Letting Go Of Anything That Is Not Love

After Yoga class last week,  I was talking to my Yoga teacher and she said that she didn’t want to “Awaken” because she wanted to keep the “Special relationships” she had with her husband, daughter, and grandson.  She was afraid if she awakened, she would lose the specialness of these relationships which is so important to her.

I had never heard anyone express that particular fear of awakening before and, honestly, I was surprised.  I thought about her comment all week.  Today, while she was teaching our class, the answer came to me: Awakening is letting go of anything that is not love.  Simple, isn’t it.  We create all our own fears and roadblocks.  All we need do is love and the rest will fall into place.  Over its hundreds and hundreds of pages, isn’t that what the Course is telling us? Awakening is letting go of anything that is not love.

Forgiveness

Lesson 330 is entitled: I will not hurt myself today.  The first line says: “Let us this day accept forgiveness as our only function.”  If the Self is my only identity, I let go of all judgment of the self and have only love and compassion for all its suffering.  If the Self is my only identity, than I hold all others harmless and see only their Self and I extend the same love and compassion to their mistakes as to mine.

We call this “Forgiveness.” The higher Self did nothing.  See only the higher Self in every brother and sister.  See only the higher Self in what I have learned to call “me” and know that all else was made up.  Let the story go. It doesn’t have to be hard.  The mind can make it as hard or as easy as it is willing. 

God, I am willing to make this easy.  I ask you for your help and grace.  Amen

A Rose By Any Other Name

OK, I need to be come clean here.  I am taking course #912: Accepting Holy Spirit’s Help.  I had a difficult time with the 1st reading that I had to do and share with my facilitator.  The first reading is on page 89 of the Manual for Teachers.  It is the definition of The Holy Spirit.  It may be one of the most difficult parts of the Course for me to read (at least at this point),

I don’t think of Jesus when I think of The Holy Spirit, and I don’t think of becoming part of the “Christ” mind.  I am just not comfortable with that image or those words..  But I know I do feel the Holy Spirit, The Spirit of God, and I talk with It all the time.  I know I am led by It and that It brings clarity and direction to me whenever I ask.  I know I am part of the One Mind, the Divine Mind.  I really think that is all that matters.

As I was struggling to get through this first reading and my facilitator was trying her best to help me with the terminology, I thought of Bill Thetford telling some students that were arguing about a line in the Course that it would be better just to tear that page out than to argue over it.  That is how I feel about this page - better that I just tear it out than to set aside the whole Course because of it.  The words truly make no difference, I love the Course - I am grateful to have it shine its wisdom, love and light into my life.  As Eckhardt Tolle says: “Words (just) point the way.”

Thoughts from Lesson 320: My Father Gives All Power Unto Me

I am limitless.  I am His strength, His peace and His joy.  My Father shines His beautiful light through me constantly.  I look through His eyes and I see a world created in beauty.  I rejoice as I watch this and I shine blessing upon it.  I am in joy and gratitude as I realize all He has given to me and to us all.  I am filled with Love, the type of Love that feels like a prayer I give to the world.  It is not mine to keep, but to share.  Amen.
