Lesson 345 A Course in Miracles

Offer Miracles

It’s easy for me to see where my beliefs limit me when the discussion turns to miracles.  My brain hears “miracle” and despite my many years of studying the Course, my first initial reaction is – beyond the realm of the normally possible; which is why I still need to retrain my mind, I suppose. The first chapter of the Course is devoted defining what a miracles is and how it occurs.  “3 Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.”   So today’s lesson should be more of that: expressions of love.  When I wrap life in love, miracles happen.  “6 Miracles are natural. When they do not occur something has gone wrong.”

Like all of the lessons, this is a prayer of remembrance, calling us back to the truth of who and what we are.

Lesson 345

I offer only miracles today, 
For I would have them be returned to me.

Father, a miracle reflects Your gifts to me, Your Son. And every one I give returns to me, reminding me the law of love is universal. Even here, it takes a form which can be recognized and seen to work. The miracles I give are given back in just the form I need to help me with the problems I perceive. Father, in Heaven it is different, for there, there are no needs. But here on earth, the miracle is closer to Your gifts than any other gift that I can give. Then let me give this gift alone today, which, born of true forgiveness, lights the way that I must travel to remember You.

Peace to all seeking hearts today. The light has come to offer miracles to bless the tired world. It will find rest today, for we will offer what we have received.

Miracles are what happens when I listen to the Holy Spirit rather than listening to ego.  To do this, I must be present, not entangled in judgment about what I think happened or what I think should happen.  “Love always leads to love.”  When I relinquish my ideas of how I think things should be, life get wrapped in love and beauty and peace.

Last night, in our ACIM Tuesday night group, I heard it said that ego is looking for validation.  I had always thought of its agenda as seeking to prove it is right and while, yes, that is what is happening, thinking of it as a request for validation rather than the need to be right helped to soften my perspective.  I had inadvertently been judging ego (which is an ego move, LOL!) rather than recognizing that the desire to be right was a call for love.  Somehow in that simple term “validation,” I felt my heart open; I felt compassion for expressions of ego in a way I never had before.  In this sense, I experienced a miracle.

It feels threaten to ego to encounter a different perspective.  It feels threatening to let go of being right.  Yet in the simple act of validating that perspective, a shift can occur.  Healing can happen.  Love shows up.

“For miracles are merely change of purpose from hurt to healing. This shift in purpose does “endanger” specialness, but only in the sense that all illusions are ‘threatened’ by the truth.” 

So today, I offer miracles; I root myself in the law of love, where I ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and forgive my erroneous ideas.  I remember how loved I am by my Father and that as a child of this Sacred Love, my pleasure comes from sharing that which I have received.  I wrap my life in love.  I surrender to this softer way of being.  I recognize that those calls for love are just ego asking to be validated because it does not remember who it is. I remember that “ 4 All miracles mean life, and God is the Giver of life. His Voice will direct you very specifically. You will be told all you need to know.”

I wrap my life in love.  I give thanks for the beauty of it all.

Namaste, my friends, Namaste.
