Happiness

1st May 2019
Lesson 66, “My Happiness and my Function are One”, is my favourite happiness lesson. This is because it clearly says: “We will not become hopelessly involved in defining happiness and determining the means for achieving it”.

Undoing the Blocks to Peace

11th February 2019
In Lesson 133, Jesus tells us, “You do not ask too much of life, but far too little”. This particular epigram never used to resonate much with me. My life was okay before I picked up A Course in Miracles. A bit shit, (life is a bit shit, Jesus tell us that plenty of times) but basically okay. I had my family and friends around me, a successful business, lots of money.

Meditation

11th January 2019
Tom Carpenter’s extraordinary work “Dialogue on Awakening” provides the greatest insight I know of into Jesus’ own awakening journey. In this book he recounts an extensive dialogue between himself and Jesus, the awakened Christ. The New Testament give us some idea as to the events of Jesus’ short life and his teachings, but little insight into his inner-journey and nothing about his personal practice. There are several references throughout The Gospels to Jesus taking himself off to pray, but certainly no mention is ever made of meditation.

Surrender

3rd January 2019
At the beginning of each new year, I start the workbook from the beginning. I don’t always finish it, but I always get going. The time commitment demanded of the first few lessons is so minimal as to hardly constitute effort at all. However, the practice instructions become so arduous later in the year that not to abandon it completely is to succeed wildly.

Daily Practice

29th December 2018
What does daily practice actually mean? Surrender maybe, or intention, or that illusive “little bit of willingness” that Jesus seems so keen on in the text. Is it a process that allows me to touch the divine ground of my being perhaps? Or does it reveal my “self” as a creation of my own mind?

Your Brother is Your Saviour

23rd March 2018
Your relationships offer you the opportunity to heal your mind. Whenever you notice a judgment come up of a brother, know that it has nothing to do with them. It is your shadow thoughts from deep within you that are projecting on to him. These thoughts come from the ancient past, and your brother is giving you the opportunity to heal them in the present moment. Your brother is your saviour and he offers you a gift of eternal value. It is up to you whether you except this gift, or stay stuck in hell. Hell offers you a continuation of pain, suffering, judgments, anger, and upset. Your brothers gift offers you release from this ancient guilt and return to your true Self – love, peace, joy, abundance and happiness. To receive your gift simply notice the shadow projections you have laid on your brother, step back, breathe deep, quiet your mind, and I will do the rest. Your choice for truth is all you need do.

Light Detective

31st January 2018
“See the light in your brothers and sisters. It is there. Draw it out of them. Pay attention to what they say and do. Look for the vein of love. A road that leads to their goodness, kindness, caring, compassion. It is there. Be a diligent observer. Ignore the judgments, complaints, grievances, moans. They come from their conditioning.

Draw Out the Light

31st January 2018
The world needs love. It is a starved and lonely desert … cruel, self centred, everyone for themselves, out for their own best interests. Everyone’s projecting their guilt onto others to try to make themselves feel better. They are in pain, afraid, shut down, shut in. They all need love. That is what’s missing. They are like plants that haven’t been watered… shrivelled and slowly dying.

See the Light in Your Brothers

29th January 2018
“See the light in your brothers and sisters. It is there. Draw it out of them. Pay attention to what they say and do. Look for the vein of love ... a road that leads to their goodness, kindness, caring, compassion. It is there. Be a diligent observer. Ignore the judgments, complaints, grievances, moans ... it comes from their conditioning. We live in a world that values complaining. People feel superior by putting others down. It is just their training. You can help retrain their minds, their identity, by drawing out their innate goodness. And as you give them this gift, it comes back to you. You are lifted out of this insanity to your true Self. Train your mind to see the light in others. Be a light detective.”

Relax and Accept Divine Order

29th January 2018
“Relax. All is well. All is in Divine order. Just do what is in front of you. Then pause, breathe deeply, and do the next right thing. Stress, worry, anxiety are all fear. It is projecting and imagining into the future. Be still and return to peace. Just do what’s in front of you. And do it with peace ... and joy. All is in Perfect Divine order. All is well. All will be done, perhaps not like you had planned, but it will all fall into place perfectly. Leave the planning to me. I will walk you through it. Just hold my hand and trust that all is well, all is as it should be ... and relax. The work you are doing is for you and your brothers. And you will perform at your best when you are relaxed.”
