The Way Back to God Is to Practice Forgiveness

by Rev. Savina Cavallo, O.M.C.

Forgiveness is the central idea and message of A Course in Miracles. I have been reading the book, practicing its principles for 12 years now. Forgiveness as the Course teaches it has been a challenge for me to understand and apply.

Forgiveness is defined as follows: “Forgiveness recognizes what you thought your brother did to you has not occurred. It does not pardon sins and make them real. It sees there was no sin.” (W-pII.1.1:1-3)

And sin is defined as a false idea about God’s creation.

Our Powerful Thoughts

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

It is curious that we do not understand that we have amazing abilities that have come with this physical existence and are always available.

In the Urtext of the Course (T-6 A 3) Jesus tells us:

“You have been chosen to teach the Atonement precisely BECAUSE you have been extreme examples of allegiance to your thought system, and therefore have developed the capacity for allegiance. It has indeed been misplaced … You cannot doubt the strength of your devotion when you consider how faithfully you observed it.”

We are indeed extremely faithful to our way of thinking. We seem to be unable, at times, to see it in any different way. Yet, we want to look at how we got there so we can follow a better model.

A Lesson in Responsibility

by Rev. Cathy Silva, O.M.C.

It was during a particularly difficult time with my family when it seemed our home had become a war zone that I learned an important lesson about Responsibility.

I desperately prayed and journaled and prayed some more. I was attempting to go to Spirit for a solution and at the same time trying to figure it out on my own. To trust is to rely upon Spirit totally and I wasn’t quite ready to do that apparently in my “split mind.”

My Game, My Rules for Decision

by Kathy Croy

I’m a student of A Course in Miracles for over ten years who has struggled with understanding and appropriately applying this powerful tool in the Manual for Teachers.
But, I am determined to see.

Recently, as I began my intent to start each day with the “Rules for Decision” (RFD), it was apparent to me that everything was backfiring. Admittedly I had a hard time knowing what to ask for, as I’m directed to “decide the kind of day I want.” The best I could do was to mutter, “I’d like a peaceful and harmonious day.” Then I would set off on my other Course lessons, meditation, heading off to work, etc.

Is Healing Possible, Even After a Long Illness?

by Rev. Peggy Rivera, O.M.C.

Whenever someone is sick for a very long time it can feel almost hopeless that healing can ever occur. We ask ourselves how can we possibly heal? I think sometimes we think healing is always automatic, like suddenly our illness is gone by the Grace of God. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe that kind of healing can occur, but it doesn’t always happen that way.

We often forget Who we are. We are the Son of God, and He created us perfect. It doesn’t matter how long we have perceived ourselves as ill because there is no order of miracles. What it does take is remembering that we are Love, as it says in Lesson 67 of the Workbook. The title, “Love created me like itself” and in paragraph 6, “Perfection created me perfect.”

How Much Do You Want?

by Rev. Stephan Mead, O.M.C.

Let’s start with money, since most course students seem to be over fifty years old. Do we have the amount of financial security we think we need? (Rent/mortgage, health insurance, retirement income, discretionary fund, and whatever else we can come up with.) How much money do we really want? Remember, when our budget spreadsheet is complete, if, (deep down) we would really like more, then we don’t have as much as we want.

What about our intimate relationship(s)? Are they what we want? Do we wish they were different? Perhaps if our partner was willing to change even a little bit, (for their own betterment — of course) we’d have the companionship going into our golden years, which would support our spiritual journey in the exact manner we’re certain we need.  Are our relationships good enough? Do we want more?

In addition, what about health? Do we want to experience our physicality differently than it is? How much “health” do we want? Again, if we wished our bodies were different, then we aren’t content with how we are now.

Receiving Holy Spirit’s Correction

by Revs. Mary & Robert Stoelting

It is helpful to reinforce what a miracle really is according to A Course in Miracles. In the ego’s thought system a miracle is getting that shiny new car, getting rich or finding that special someone who will always love us, no matter what.

In truth, a miracle is receiving Holy Spirit’s correction in our perception of everything we see in the world of separation. A Course in Miracles tells us, “A miracle is a correction. …It merely looks on devastation, and reminds the mind that what it sees is false. It undoes error, but does not attempt to go beyond perception, nor exceed the function of forgiveness. …Yet it paves the way for the return of timelessness and Love’s awakening, for fear must slip away under the gentle remedy [the miracle] brings.” (W-pII.13.1)

The Final Day

by Rev. Jim Peterson, O.M.C.

Father, if today I were to
join you in Heaven
I would want to bring
the total awareness of
Our Love with me.

I would want to see,
up until my last breath,
the Love that emanates
and fills all things within
this world of form.

A Miracle with 8% Interest

by Rev. Dan Strodl, O.M.C.

What is a miracle? A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love. Instead of seeing the world through fear, anxiety, stress, judgments and grievances, we see through the eyes of love, peace and happiness. While miracles are a healing of our mind, they can manifest in our outer world ... as healing of an illness, money issues, relationship struggles etc.

To choose a miracle is to invite Holy Spirit to guide us. To hold a grievance is to forget who we are. When Holy Spirit replaces a grievance with a miracle, we re-awakened to the truth of who we truly are. The result is happiness. The opportunity for everyday miracles is there for all of us, we just need willingness and mind training. True forgiveness (letting go of judgments) is the key to bringing miracles into our lives. As we notice our upsets, grievances, judgments, and hand them over to the Holy Spirit, they dissolve into nothingness, and in their place comes peace. When practiced regularly it becomes a habit, and in time our world shifts from anxiety to peace, from judgments to acceptance, from fear to happiness.

Another Step Out of the Closet

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

I have recently completed my work on my website: larryglenz.com. I felt guided to do this, but it has been difficult for me to tell people that it even exists.

Although I enjoy being an Ordained Ministerial Counselor (O.M.C.) for Pathways of Light over the past 11 years, I have remained “in the closet” about my ministry to much of my family and friends with whom I have had the longest relationships. We just don’t talk about it.

My past identity for most people has been as a history teacher, athletic coach, and part-time bartender. Although I remain a volunteer assistant coach, my pursuits in life have greatly changed since my retirement 11 years ago.

Do Not Arrest Your Thought in This World

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

There are two sentences in the Text, Section III, paragraph 16 that feel really meaningful to me this morning. One is that “freedom from illusions lies only in not believing them.” I love this for its simplicity. Yes, it can feel difficult not to believe in what seems so real, but then that is the purpose of the illusion, to feel real. So, when I experience the effects of believing in the illusion, I ask the Holy Spirit to remove those thoughts from my mind, the thoughts I believe that could not be real.

Don’t Let Ego Drive False Narratives for You

by Rev. Peggy Rivera, O.M.C.

Be careful what you tell yourself and also what you believe about yourself. The ego likes to make you believe you are not worth anything. The ego wants you to loathe yourself and feel worthless. In Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book, Your Sacred Self, he describes “Some Typical Peace Avoidance Behaviors.” He says that, “When you have an absence of peace at any time in your life, know that your ego, the false idea of yourself, is responsible.”

Here are some peace avoiding behaviors:

True Prayer — Prayer That Is the Medium of Miracles

by Rev. Jennifer McSween, O.M.C.

I started hosting a Weekly Podcast in December 2018. The title is “Understanding the Language of A Course in Miracles.”

As the title suggests, the purpose of this Podcast is to help fellow Course students to better understand what the Course is really saying so they can more effectively apply the Teachings to their specific circumstances and situations.

I have been A Course in Miracles Student, Teacher, POL Counselor and Course Workshop Facilitator for close to 20 years, and I remember how much I struggled in my early years as a Course student, trying to figure out what the Course was really saying.

How Do You See Your Life? How Does Your Helpful Self See Your Life?

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

Do you ever notice those thoughts in your mind telling you all the things wrong with you and your life? I do. As a Pause for Inspiration Mentor, I run across a lot of people who do too! We tend to think we are alone in having these thoughts; we’re not. Thoughts telling you that there is no hope for you, you’ve made too many wrong turns, why bother, it’s too late for me, etc., are favorite one-liners of this me-jokester. But we don’t have to believe the words of this confounded joker.

Yesterday, I was about to do some simple movements to help calm my mind and wring out accumulated stress. I always begin with a Pause for Inspiration, and in this one pause, I received the following suggestion from My Helpful Self, “Let go of your perceptions and judgments of you and your life.”<
