[acim] Who or What Are We?

Everything that seems to happen to me I ask for and receive as I have asked. a course in miracles

it’s me

Mostly unknowingly and because we’re creator children of the One God, we bring all that we experience into our lives. Everything that happens to us is because we want it to happen to us. We’re powerful beyond understanding. We, for some reason, want to play small and be like helpless bodies that eventually die. Who or what are we? Isn’t it time we found out?

[acim] Why I Am Responsible…

I am responsible for what I see. a course in miracles

a matrix

Life doesn’t happen to us randomly. God isn’t doing Life to us. We are Life and we’re doing all of it to ourselves. Once we start buying this truth, Life starts to make more sense. We live in an illusory Matrix, that’s entirely our own doing. But there’s no way ‘out’ unless we know that we’re under the spell such a Maya-like Matrix.

And Here The Twain Shall Meet…

Where art Thou, except here, and now? Where am ‘I’ except right here, and right now? –

here and now

All of Life is focused right here and in this now. We happen to be here and now as well. In other words we intersect, directly and precisely, with Reality, i.e. God. If we can grasp and experience this Truth but for a moment, then we would have arrived, home.

[acim] Why We Suffer Through Life’s Trials…

Trials are but lessons that you failed to learn presented once again… a course in miracles


All of Life’s events are lessons. Suffering is inevitable if we don’t learn the intended lessons. All lessons point to increasing awareness. Awareness of self, which means our thoughts, emotions, assumptions, tendencies and desires. We ought to welcome trials because they eventually lead to self-discovery and therefore life-fulfillment.

We Are The World…

Stop acting so small. You are the Universe in ecstatic motion. Rumi

the universe

For unknown reasons we’ve decided to reduce our divine purview to what we currently experience through our bodies. We’re convinced that we’re what our bodies are. What if that wasn’t the case? What if a greater perspective and experience were possible just by a change in our perception? And what if that change was the easiest and most natural thing to do?

[acim] How To Experience a Miracle…

The miracle comes quietly into the mind that stops an instant and is still. a course in miracles

be still

A miracle is the experience of God’s loving presence. It’s the experience of primal reality. Such is the underpinning of all seeming objects and events that we can ever experience. It’s the very substance of everything and therefore everyone. It’s realized when our chattering mind is completely still even if it’s for just a moment. In that moment of realization all is quiet, still, peaceful, wholesome and complete. Nothing’s left to be said or to be done.

[acim] What is a Miracle?

…everything that comes from love is a miracle. a course in miracles


Many wonder about the definition of a ‘Miracle’ from the perspective of A Course in Miracles. The Text and the Lessons in the book have various definitions. In fact the entire book repeats essentially the same message in a myriad different ways. The message is that what we understand to be us and the world around us is not what it appears to be. In truth we’re ever in the presence of our creator, but we’ve decided to not experience this reality for some reason. That presence is love itself. Which is why I ‘love’ the above definition of a miracle. A miracle is knowing that all that we are and which we experience is an expression of love. It’s a ‘shift in perception’ that helps us embrace reality.
