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 […]

To give and to receive are one in truth

The way I do these exercises and posts is to start by typing the headline and then think about the associations it produces. I write about those and then read the full workbook exercise and start doing them and write appropriate comments. So today’s thought for the day becomes a riddle: “What is it that […]

I share God’s Will for happiness for me

Jimmy Hendrix sang, “Loneliness is such a drag…” One of the challenges I’m facing at this time is that I cannot talk about where I’m with my wife and sisters (my nearest loved ones) as I don’t want to burden them even more. So I keep things inside and when I talk about it it […]

I think perfect happiness is accepting whatever happens as the will of God. Many great people (from a spiritual […]

My part is essential to God’s plan for salvation

Day one hundred of this quest and today I’ll be full of joy and happiness. In the same way that our earthly parents want us to be happy and are joyful when we are, imagine how much more our heavenly parent desires happiness for us. According to the ACIM workbook today is to be dedicated […]

I have spent most of the last thirty eight hours in bed and one way or other recovering from some kind of dis-ease. My nose is running, I had (and to a certain extent still have) a sore throat and my breathing is not easy. I mentioned yesterday that being spiritual and practicing the teachings […]

My source is forgiving love

What is the Source, the Creator of all, the Author of the infinite universes? Most religions believe that it is love which created the universe. Either God is equivalent to love or created the creation out of love. The four thoughts to be reviewed today and yesterday (I ended lacking time – I may do […]

Being happy is the function God gave me

When people are on their deathbeds they never regret not having spent more times in the office, or having made more money, or not having bought more toys. They regret no having loved more, or spent more time watching sunsets and so on. The American statement that he who dies with most toys wins is […]
