Treat Everyone as Your Angel!

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

I had suspected skin cancer on my nose, and saw a consultant at the skin clinic who gave me a blood test to see if it was benign or malignant.

I found the whole experience with the consultant very difficult. First of all he made no eye contact with me. While he was talking he was looking at the computer screen, and never looked at me. He had a miserable expression on his face. I had a lot of questions, but he had no time for me. I felt like I was being ignored, and pushed out of the office.

A week later I had an appointment with the same consultant to get the results. I felt full of fear about what the results might be, and I was apprehensive about seeing the same consultant again.

Before I left the house, I connected to the Holy Spirit. I said “I am frightened, and I don’t want to see this consultant. How would you have me see this?” I sat there quietly for a few more minutes, and then the thought came into my mind “Treat everyone as your Angel.” This seemed like a strange response to my question, but I had nothing else to go with ... so I went with it.

A Sunday Morning Call

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

I was gratefully and joyfully on the Pathways of Light Sunday morning call today. What a glorious blessing! How fortunate we are in this age of technology to connect in the comfort of our own homes. Robert reminded us in a beautiful meditation this morning of our connection to each other and to every brother and sister. 

During the call, many opportunities came up for me to “be” one of my brothers or sisters. One brother (Rev. Greg Hesch) spoke of how grateful he was/is that he was able to stay in peace when surrounded by seeming conflict among his neighbors.

The ego wants us to take sides so that we can project guilt and blame onto an “other.” He was able to see beyond this ego setup and remember that fear is controlling them. Fear makes us feel alone and separated from each other and God.

What Does Pause Have to Do with It?

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

“I got this, I know what I’m doing, Ill figure it out, I’m an expert, I’m educated, I’m smart, I’ve been doing this for other people, I don’t need help” etc. These are just a few of the multitude of excuses we give for not Practicing PAUSE, which is the following:

The decision to experience my calm, quiet mind . . . SLOW DOWN

The decision to get out of my own way . . . . . . .  BREATHE

The decision to listen to My Helpful Self
. . . . . . . LISTEN

The decision to Follow My Helpful Self
. . . . . . . .  FOLLOW

Understanding Pain

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

I have been trying to comprehend the teachings of the Course concerning physical pain.

I had surgery for a total knee replacement in the beginning of this summer. My knees were damaged during my younger years as a college wrestler and again as a young high school wrestling coach. I had surgery in the 1970’s on both knees and now in my late 60’s they are arthritic. I held out for years on the surgery but finally took the plunge and went for a replacement of the more painful knee.

I am not certain how I ever formed the opinion that I was a tough guy when it came to physical pain. Nevertheless, I was howling like a baby every time I stood up in the weeks following surgery. It felt like a blow torch was igniting in my knee and I was not handling it with even a modicum of grace. I couldn’t get comfortable and I couldn’t sleep well. The painkillers prescribed were not doing the trick.

In my better moments I turned to Holy Spirit and to the teachings of A Course in Miracles.

Let Go!

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

In a tightly controlled voice, I said, “I have just two words for you.” And, then, I shrieked, “LET GO!” I was so mad at my 96 year old mother that I thought I would explode. I had recently moved in with her to ‘help her out,’ and there I was screaming at her and feeling oh-so justified.

The conflict was always the same. My mom bordered on hoarding, and I loved simplicity. On this day, she wanted to hold onto yet another small trinket that I unabashedly called “another piece of *%#*$. After I screamed at her, I managed to take myself for a very vigorous walk before I could do any more verbal damage because, as soon as the words “let go” came out of my mouth, I knew they were meant for me, not her.

What Must I Sacrifice?

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

What will I leave behind to accept my glory? What will I sacrifice? I will no longer gather, organize and decipher information in order to make a decision. That is my sacrifice. Instead, I will simply ask for an answer and it will occur intuitively without any effort on my part. At least that has been my experience when I have asked rather than trying to work out the answer on my own.

I will not be worried or anxious about life. Fear is what I will sacrifice. Instead, I will simply accept that what is occurring is in my best interest and in everyone else’s best interest. If I can’t see how that is true, I will ask for clarity, and never doubt or be concerned. I will accept the perfection of all things and simply wait for guidance on what to do next.

Fear and Choice

by Rev. Michael Graves, O.M.C.

Hello Mighty Companions!

I have come to love sitting down to write something without even a clue as to what will come. To be honest, it used to terrify me. I wouldn’t even start unless I had a clear roadmap of what I was going to say and how I was going to say it. I felt totally responsible for the content and there was this feeling that it had to be seen by others as “good” or “helpful” etc. No ego influence there, right?

The funny thing is, what would end up coming out seldom resembled what “I” had planned to write. As I began to write, I could feel the flow of the Spirit, and It felt so wonderful that I was willing to abandon “my” plan and follow His.

Relationships, Healing and Ourselves

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

How many times have you sat with someone you care about who was sick or even dying? Have you had the experience of being a long term caretaker? Did you take the time to assess your feelings of what was going on?

So often we have the task before us to try to comfort the sick and sometimes we feel we should be able to heal them. And if we cannot help them, we may decide to hate ourselves for it.

Or the situation can be that you are so busy taking care of the other person that you forgot to take care of yourself. That is very common with couples in the fall of their lives. The one who takes care of the one who gets sick often ends up sick themselves. I remember when my parents were in that time of their lives both of them were sick and trying to take care of each other and not able to really succeed so I told them they needed to move in with me so I could take care of them.

Healing My Inner Child

by Tacey Reese, Ministerial Candidate

I began the Pathways of Light ministerial classes this year and have received so much from the meditations and exercises. This experience is from the “Sharing with Your Inner Child” meditation in Course 112: Knowing Your True Purpose.

During the guided meditation I find my infant self clothed only in a cloth diaper, sitting on the brown braided rug in the living room. She’s smiling, happy. I pick her up and her eyes are bright, shining love all over me. I bask in that love. We’re in a cocoon of love and I can’t look away from her eyes shining that love all over me and spilling out to fill the space we’re in.

I admire the rest of her, perfect skin, delicate fingers and toes and lustrous dark hair and I realize she is perfect. She came to this world perfect and a sense of relief washes over me. There’s nothing I can tell this infant that she doesn’t already know. I feel like she has comforted me.

The Power of Asking for Help

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

“The Car and the Pause GPS”

Here at Pause we train people how to become Pause Practitioners and share this helpful practice with others, all for free! One of our current students shared the perfect experience with all of us last week; Perfect, because she was willing to ask for help!

Maxine got into her car excited to be on her way that morning to the Practitioner training. As enthusiastic as Maxine was, her car was, well, not so much. Cranking on the ignition and, nothing! Oh boy, what now?

Reflection

by Rev. Diane C. Bernier, O.M.C.

This August, I decided that as I read the message of the day to take time to reflect and journal about it. I received some beautiful insights:

Aug.16: Lesson 228: God has condemned me not. No more do I.

I wrote: Why am I feeling so guilty? Why am I feeling like I don’t deserve the best? Why can’t I fully embrace my own Divine Self? Why is it so challenging to believe this fully and completely?

The Strength of Our Innocence

Anonymous

Our crime was never meant to be… no, we simply believed some untruth but saw the better of it before any sentence could be laid. We remain innocent of any murder of God, ourselves or anyone else. The death of God could never be. Therefore, no death exists.

I Am Still as God Created Me

by Rev. Greg Hesch, O.M.C.

Greg HeschBefore I started one of my smaller meditations that I am trying to do hourly, I heard some arguing from a mother and father of a two year old across the street from me. I was working on ACIM Lesson 110, I am as God created me. I was led to include my neighbors saying, “We are all as God created us to be.” I had a great meditation seeing everyone in the Light that we all are. I also sent Love and peace to them and then out to the Sonship.

A couple of minutes after I finished, the mother and father started screaming at each other. The mother then yelled, “Please help!… Anyone…please help!” I was still very connected with my inner Guide, the Holy Spirit, and was prompted to call 911.

Relying On Spirit

by Rev. Michael Graves, O.M.C.

Michael GravesMost people who know me well know these two things about me. One that I am a minister and two that I love to fish.

I retired almost six years ago, and recently I had been having the recurring and persistent thought of buying a boat. I have a few friends that have one and it is always a great experience to go with them whether we catch anything or not.

I struggled with the usual thoughts when considering such a purchase, but as I went to Holy Spirit with my concerns I heard very clearly, “What is it for?”

As a student of A Course in Miracles, I am familiar with this principal as it is mentioned more than a few times in the book. I was very pleased to receive this guidance from Spirit.

As I was pondering the question it became very clear to me that while I love just to be on the water and to fish, the boat would provide many opportunities to join with others in a very unique way.

I knew it wasn’t about getting a new possession or even being able to fish when and where I wanted. Of course having my own boat could provide those things, but when I went deeper into my mind, it was about the opportunity for joining.
