I will step back and let Her lead the way

OK the actual title of today’s ACIM workbook exercise is: I will step back and let Him lead the way As far as I’m concerned the Ultimate Reality (God, Tao, The One) is beyond all words and concepts. As the Tao Te Ching says: The Ultimate Reality which is described in words is not the […]

I am among the ministers of God

I’m going to concentrate on the first paragraph of the ACIM workbook for today: Let us today be neither arrogant nor falsely humble. We have gone beyond such foolishness. We cannot judge ourselves, nor need we do so. These are but attempts to hold decision off, and to delay commitment to our function. It is […]

In my defenselessness my safety lies

Yesterday I had a thought which allows me continue A Course In Miracles workbook. Today’s thought of the day is: In my defenselessness my safety lies The workbook says about today’s thought (my comments in parenthesis): You who feel threatened by this changing world, its twists of fortune and its bitter jests, its brief relationships […]

The power of decision is my own

When I read the thought for today I liked it very much for it reminded me of responsibility if by that we mean response-ability. That is to say we, and we alone can face up to the vicissitudes of life and respond to whatever happens. In fact from an existentialist philosophy point of view, we […]

All things are echoes of the Voice for God

I have started the A Course in Miracles workbook again. But as I mentioned I’ll do it my own way. Today’s thought is: All things are echoes of the Voice for God This is like the idea I have had that the phenomenal reality is all dreams in the mind of God. I was telling […]

My mind holds only what I think with God

We start another review period. From A Course in Miracles workbook for this review period: Now we review again, this time aware we are preparing for the second part of learning how the truth can be applied. Today we will begin to concentrate on readiness for what will follow next. Such is our aim for […]

Only salvation can be said to cure

This is one of those days that I just don’t get A Course in Miracles. I am a radical monist. That means I believe in the unity of the whole shebang. That unity of the all (whatever the all is, is irrelevant for now) is what I call the Ultimate Reality and others may call […]

I will accept Atonement for myself

Atonement can be read as at-one-ment. It thus can mean being one with the father. But in reality there is only the One (Ultimate Reality – God – Tao – or whatever). So we cannot escape atonement. We are one with the father (three persons in one using Christian mythology and terminology) whatever we do. […]

Heaven is the decision I must make

From ACIM workbook for today: In this world Heaven is a choice, because here we believe there are alternatives to choose between. We think that all things have an opposite, and what we want we choose. If Heaven exists there must be hell as well, for contradiction is the way we make what we perceive, […]

When I am healed I am not healed alone

Some of the ACIM ideas of the day I reject viscerally and others I accept immediately. Most I may be positively inclined toward. Today’s idea is one of the ones I love. Since I believe I do not exist in reality, and the only thing which exists is the One (Ultimate Realty)  it follows that […]
