I seek but what belongs to me in truth

There is a line in the I Ching (The Chinese book of changes) I love which states that if you lose your horse do not search for it. If it is truly yours it will return to you in seven days. In the same way, A Course in Miracles states that it is a required […]

Let go and let God’s peace cover the universe

Again I’m doing two of the review days together.  I am sick and have spent a lot of time in bed for the last day. I was going to write I am suffering from a sickness and then I changed my mind. The miracle is not that when you are spiritual you do not get […]

Let miracles replace all grievances

I believe there is only one miracle and that is the end of grievances. When you accept everything as God’s gift, when you forgive everyone including yourself, when you have nothing but unconditional love and compassion for all beings, you are in the kingdom of heaven, you are happy. As Jesus said, the kingdom of […]

Only God’s plan for salvation will work

From ACIM workbook for today: [] you believe, [] “If this were different, I would be saved.” The change of mind necessary for salvation is thus demanded of everyone and everything except yourself. Begin the two longer practice periods for today by thinking about today’s idea, and realizing that it contains two parts, each making […]

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 […]

My only function is the one God gave me

From ACIM workbook for today: The idea for today reaffirms your commitment to salvation. It also reminds you that you have no function other than that. Both these thoughts are obviously necessary for a total commitment… Today, and for a number of days to follow, set aside ten to fifteen minutes for a more sustained […]

Let me not forget my function

Today is a day of remembering our function of forgiving and being a light unto the world. From the ACIM workbook: Today’s idea is merely another way of saying “Let me not wander into temptation.” The purpose of the world you see is to obscure your function of forgiveness, and provide you with a justification […]

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 am the light of the world

On day sixty one the first review section is over and for the last day of the year I’m the light of the world… ACIM workbook mentions that this is the opposite of a statement of pride, of arrogance, or of self-deception. It is not the ego’s self-concept but the way you were created by […]

The love of God is always with me

Day sixty and the last day of the current set of reviews – today we concentrate on the love of God and forgiveness. Many mystics believe that God is love and love is God. Saint Paul said that love is the greatest of  all characteristics. Unconditional love and compassion are the source of forgiveness. And […]
