Why We Must Return Home…

You are indeed essential to God’s plan. Without your joy, his joy is incomplete. a course in miracles

all are needed

God is incomplete without the full participation and rejoining of her ‘separated’ creations. We’re ‘separated’ because we experience aloneness and are not generally happy campers. We’ll always be wanting fulfillment and completion until we wholly desire God and ‘return’ back home.

How To Be Worry Free…

I place the future in the hands of God. a course in miracles

trust god

Given our limited, very flawed intellect and our penchant for making mistakes, it’s best if we allow divine intelligence to help us make our decisions. How do we do that? By simply asking the divine for help and inviting it to participate in our daily and even moment-by-moment decision making.

How To Erase Anxiety…

I live by letting things happen. – Dogen

allow

We experience separation from that which is. To erase this apparent separation we must allow what is. Any resistance to what is, causes the separation, therefore anxiety, and the feeling of loneliness, to intensify. As we allow life to just happen, over time, the separation slowly, becomes meaningless.

I Can Be Hurt By Nothing But My Thoughts…

I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts. a course in miracles

only I

The entirety of our thoughts, beliefs and assumptions is our world. Life and its problems are easily summed up thusly. Our experience of Life is via our thoughts, the mind that we’ve constructed which is the same as ‘I’, the ego. And it’s the Ego, who we think is us, that appears to hurt us. Nothing but our own thoughts is the culprit.

Why We Must Let Go…

Holding on to what you think will meet your needs is like holding your breath. a course of love

just flow

We really think we know what’s good for us and that we must figure it all out in life. Not true. The road to wisdom is the path of ‘the beginner’s mind‘, or unknowingness. Attempting to hold on to what we think will keep us safe is foolhardy. The divine parent is truly watching out for us, and she can only help us if we give up our know-it-all attitude when it comes to everything in life.

From Now to Eternity…

Now is the closest approximation of eternity that this world offers. a course in miracles

what is, now

Now, truly now, is a place, actually an experience, that’s indescribable. It’s where we, as pure awareness, are simply experiencing what is. We’re not naming what is, or creating word descriptions of it in our minds. We’re just ‘knowing’, and eventually ‘being’ what is.
