A Course In Miracles 

"All things are lessons God would have me learn. A lesson is a miracle which God offers to me in place of thoughts I made that hurt me. What I learn of Him becomes the way I am set free. And so I choose to learn His lessons and forget my own." A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson #213

Recently someone shared with me the value of the pieces from the course that I share from time to time, so I may be including more of the lessons as my own daily reminders. A Course in Miracles has been part of my active spiritual practice since 1976 when I consciously began my spiritual commitment to God. I committed my whole life, all my possessions, and all the activities in which I engage to serve God's Will. Over the years I have watched how that single commitment made over and over has directed, guided, encouraged, provided, challenged, and inspired me to live in faith, absolutely knowing I am loved. With a solid foundation with God, with someone's total love with a sense of your holy purpose, there is a certainty and confidence that cannot be eroded or dismissed by the world's judgments, fears and even crucifixion.

That being said, I invite you to look for within yourself, something or someone that matters more than anything else. Devote yourself to what brings you peace and joy and inspires your Love. Give your All and watch how yu grow with the challenges that life brings as well as appreciate the blessings along the way.

It is only our thoughts which hurt us when we are focused solely on the calling of our heart and the inner guidance of Spirit. Give yourself the gift of Holy Purpose and find the High Way to a life of trust and inner knowingness. All is well when you remember that you are whole and Good and beautiful just as you are.

Loving you, just as you are.
