The Promise of the Course

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

As the years seem to go by, my study of ACIM only intensifies. I feel grateful to have A Course in Miracles to focus me on Holy Spirit’s Guidance as I navigate through this human experience.

The Course captured my heart many years ago and I have never let go of it. The Course has convinced me that Holy Spirit has got my back no matter what seems to be going on in my life. I have had the experience of being carried by Spirit during the most difficult times.

As this trust continues to build in my consciousness, I find myself letting go of the outcomes I think I most desire in my life. I try more and more to let go and let God. I can see now that I don’t know my own best interests. But I trust He does.

This trust in God I feel growing in me continuously. My greatest ambition is to be used by Holy Spirit as one of God’s teachers. He knows the way that is best for me right now.

I do not know what form this will take. What kind of minister will I be in the years to come? I am not sure what this will look like as it evolves but I trust that it will be perfect. It may not look perfect through my eyes but that is where the trust comes in.

All people experience difficult times in their lives. Some lives appear to be harder or less fortunate than others. As the world sees it, there are winners and losers of all types and everyone is different. But the body’s eyes show us only illusion. We are not to believe what we see.

The Course teaches us that we are all the same. There can be no winners and losers in Eternity and God only sees the Oneness that we all are in truth. We are being asked to view each other in this way. No one can lose for another to gain. As each of us thrives, we all thrive. No one gets left behind.

Some of the greatest sadness we experience comes from a loved one being sick or dying. I remember how my mom, Phyllis, suffered from dementia. She became terrified and the disease only got worse until she finally left her body. I was scared and handed the frightening circumstances to my Higher Power, the Holy Spirit. I asked Him to let me see this differently.

When my mom passed, I could feel that she was released from the prison of her mental torture. Her Spirit became very much alive in me. There is no death. Spirit is always eternal. I can feel my mom with me. It is an infusion of love. This love guides me if I just let it.

My son, Kevin, spent the last seven years of his young life as a heroin addict. As his father, I was obsessed with healing him. There were many terrible days and nights where I prayed for help to heal him of this insidious addiction. I was so scared by what my eyes were showing me. I asked Holy Spirit to help me see this differently.

The circumstances of his final relapse and subsequent overdose death were horrifying. He left behind a family and friends that loved him deeply. His daughter, Olivia, was only 4 months old.

I was able to feel Kevin’s spirit soon after his transition. Like his grandmother, Phyllis, his spirit reached into my heart and let me know he was there. Only deep love is there now. He is free from the incessant cravings for the drug. Free.

My mom and son are two angels to whom I can turn. They are connected to Holy Spirit and therefore connected directly to me. We are clearly being taught that Holy Spirit is in us and is God’s Voice to us.

There is enormous strength to be gained through the teachings of the Course. The lessons I have learned are about the power of forgiveness. I have been allowed to experience an influx of love from so many people. I feel healed from the past mistakes. Relationships that were bitter are now kind and gentle. I want to help to heal others through Spirit’s Guidance.

I place my future into the Hands of God. I want to be open to the joy and love of living. I look forward to how He will use me. There are so many possibilities and I must let go of the outcome. Trusting in Spirit is where I want to keep my focus.

Together, with Holy Spirit and angels like my mom and son, I fully expect to continue to be guided. I am open to whatever may come my way. I want to experience the love I both give and receive.

This is the promise of the Course. And this is no small gift.
