What Would You Do If You Knew You Couldn't Fail?

Let Me Remember*

let me remember my purpose

Today is one of those days when conflicting goals find me feeling tempted to enter stress-monkey mode.  So naturally, because everything is truly in divine right order, today’s Course lesson is “Let me remember what my purpose is.” It is the reminder that I cannot serve two masters simultaneously. It says “No one can serve […]

Off the Hook

Off the Hook

The longer I study A Course in Miracles, the more I get why it is really about learning to forgive.  In truth, it is just letting myself off the hook again and again and again. Intellectually, I understand this but the practice is another story.  Like any skill, I may think I get it, but […]

Magic Thoughts

Magic

How many mornings have I thought I had adequate time to reclaim my old habit of daily writing, with sitting with God, with the pitapat of the keyboard as I settle into contemplation?  Too often!  Too often,  I have arisen early enough so that theoretically, I should have had adequate time to wedge the activity […]

Love Letter to Michael Rowe

Happy Birthday, Michael Rowe

This is a love letter.  Writing love letters is not something I’ve done a lot of over the years, but before the days of instant messaging and cell phones that allow us to communicate from all corners of the earth, the depths of one’s affection for another could be evidenced by taking the time to […]

A Story about Stories

stories

The past is a collection of stories.  In reality, these stories are the only way the past continues to exist and so it behooves us (me) to tell stories that empower.  It behooves us (me) to recount a version that plants seeds of creativity, stories that catapult us in the direction of our dreams rather […]

Nothing to Fix

I am no longer trying to fix things.  There IS nothing to fix.  Letting go of this inclination may not seem like a gargantuan feat – after all, it is infinitely easier to NOT do things than to do them, but trust me,  it is.  It’s huge.  It is the taming of ego.  It is […]

In Search of the Peace of God

A Course in Miracles

Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists.  Herein lies the Peace of God. I have studied long enough to realize that when I encounter stress, I am looking at a place within that needs healing.  It is resistance to what is.  It is fear.  It is lack of trust.  Yesterday, as I once again […]

Hell: Resistance to Life

Resistance to Life

“There isn’t any hell or heaven except for how we relate to our world.  Hell is just resistance to life.” ~Pema Chodron, The Wisdom of No Escape. When I am in hell, I need to write.  The part that is screwed up (of course!) is that I resist writing, as well.  When I am in […]
