Lesson 355 – Accepting God’s Word: No End to Peace and Joy

lesson 355, A Course in Miracles

From last year’s writing, lesson 355 is There is no end to all the peace and joy, and all the miracles that I will give, when I accept God’s Word. Why not today?  This post was written on the last day of the year (because at that point in time I was 10 days behind!).  It is […]

Lesson 353 – The Eternal Student: Coming of Age; Given to Christ

eternal student for Lesson 353 A Course in Miracles

Today’s lesson, #353, is one of surrender.  Today, we are asked to stop fighting God and be the people we were meant to be.  “My eyes, my tongue, my hands, my feet today have but one purpose; to be given Christ to use to bless the world with miracles.” Beyond selfish agendas and fear of lack, […]

Lesson 322: I Sacrifice Illusions: What was Never Real

lesson 322 A Course in Miracles

Lately, I find myself contemplating just what illusion is.  In A Course in Miracles terms it is ego’s version of reality, which is not Reality at all.  “Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”  So all the ideas that my mind conjures to tell me there is something […]
