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 […]

Peace through forgiveness and loving light

Second of the second review sessions continues with the idea that my function is to bring peace onto the world through forgiveness and unconditional love. From ACIM workbook: The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness. Suggestions for specific forms for applying this idea are: Let peace extend from my […]

Let me recognize my problems have been solved

Yesterday during the second long exercise period I realized that I had no real problems. Yes, life is suffering and all sorts of “bad” things do happen but they are not real problems. They are simply things to be accepted and dealt with appropriately. From ACIM workbook: Your only problem has been solved! Repeat this […]

I am entitled to miracles

This begs the question what is a miracle? Yesterday in A Course in Miracles workbook I read something that I understood as implying that the miracles of science are against God’s laws. Things which were not part of God’s laws included:  the “laws” of nutrition, of immunization, of medication, and of the body’s protection in […]

The light has come

Today is a break through day – as I’m writing this the audio I’m listening says, “Today’s the day!” How’s that for synchronicity as according to A Course in Miracles workbook today is the day the light has come: Our longer practice periods will be devoted to looking at the world that our forgiveness shows […]

From ACIM workbook for today: The idea for today can be regarded as the central thought toward which all our exercises are directed. […]

The scientific research done on the effect of prayer on healing has demonstrated that nonspecific prayer when you just pray for the best is more effective than when you tell God what to do. Thus when praying for someone who has heart disease it is much better to pray, “Thy will be done,” than to […]

My salvation comes from me

Today’s thought is self evident.  It is a matter of accepting responsibility for one’s existence and being. It is a truism under any system which has both the idea of salvation and free will. There are some religious sects like the Calvinists who believe that salvation comes from external sources (through grace) and that only […]

The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness

From the ACIM workbook: We will begin the day by acknowledging it, and close the day with the thought of it in our awareness. And throughout the day we will repeat this as often as we can: The light of the world brings peace to every mind  through my forgiveness. I am the means God […]

I could see peace instead of this

Day thirty four from the workbook: Three longer practice periods are required for today’s exercises. One in the morning and one in the evening are advised, with an additional one to be undertaken at any time in between that seems most conducive to readiness. All applications should be done with your eyes closed. It is […]
