Hello my friends!
I wanted to thank you for visiting this site! I just released my new book, All Peace No Pieces: A Course in Miracles’ Take on “the World.”
It was truly a labor of love and I hope those of you who are inspired to get a copy find it helpful!
Here is an excerpt from the book. I think it’s a wonderful reminder and helps me practice the Course’s principles when the world get in my face!
“Our learning has gotten us to wherever we are. Now we have a choice to make if we’re tired of suffering. Which teacher do we follow in the dream? One keeps us dreaming and the other wakes us up. True forgiveness is what wakes us up. Not being taken in by appearances wakes us up. I know you’ve probably heard the saying, “we’re all in this together.” We truly are. When we make either choice, for the ego or the Holy Spirit, we make the choice for the entire Sonship because all minds are joined being that there’s only one. We are either teaching love or teaching fear in each moment, depending on which interpretation of the dream we choose to listen to. Through consistent choice for the Holy Spirit’s forgiveness classroom, we eventually find ourselves back in the home we never truly left. Let’s wake up to the awareness that we are all peace. No pieces.”
I find this helpful because we don’t have to worry about where we were before, in the past. We can start each day anew, in the present, remembering that we are not alone in working towards having a more peaceful and fulfilling life! It starts right now -let go of the past. Not because you’re ignoring it, but because the Course is teaching that it never happened. It’s truly gone because it never was.
Can we still learn from past mistakes? Of course we can and we do. The difference is, do you have to put your salvation in it? Do you have to believe it’s real?
A Course in Miracles wants us to eventually remember, when we’re ready, to let the Holy Spirit correct our one and only mistake – the belief in the ego (false self). All our other seeming mistakes will be corrected.
Love and many blessing to you!!
