The Gift of Mindfulness


The newest buzzword is “mindfulness” but it’s actually the oldest concept in spirituality. Mindfulness, meditation and prayer: We are asked to practice these without ceasing. Our lives can be a walking prayer if we focus our attention on truth and not let the world distract us from this dedication. That’s what this weekend retreat is for: To help us step back and focus on the truth.

We invite you to experience the power of A Course in Miracles at The Holy Encounter Retreat as we look beyond the limitations of this world and experience the possibility of God in every aspect of our lives. The weekend includes well-appointed lodging and six chef-prepared gourmet meals.

Healing at Election Time

Editor’s Note: Our viewing/listening family extends around the world! Here’s a timely story from Debbie Rubin, a member in Florida. She was inspired to share this story, with a little political healing, after watching last week’s meeting. No matter on which side of the political spectrum you may fall, we can still find unity in kindness…

I just loved the lesson you (Beverly) did on “Christ’s vision is the one I will use” and it’s thru using it I wanted to share this miracle with you and the MDC family.

Back in the Stone Age when I was a teenager in college, I was star crazy. I would mail out letters to every known star and often received in return a pre-printed, autograph-stamped photo which I would cherish. I even had the opportunity, through non-stop persistence, to meet a few of these celebrities. One of the stars I’d written was Jon Voight, who at the time was at the height of his career with Midnight Cowboy having just come out.

I vividly remember standing in line in my college dorm cafeteria and opening up a hand-written (in red felt pen) two-page letter from Jon. I also remember embarrassing all my friends with my shrieks of surprise and awe. He basically wrote that just because he was in the limelight, that was not a reason for me to envy him. He explained how much harder it had become for him to know who his true friends were and those who wanted to be with him due to his celebrity status. The letter went on to wish me great success in life, to know that fame is not a means to happiness and that I am as important as any celebrity. Wow, what that meant to me.

Recently I felt an inward urge to write once again to Jon. I know it came from the Course’s teaching that we are all One, all the same, and the differences we see only lead to separation and despair. With all the political distractions, and knowing Jon is at the polar opposite of me, did not deter me from writing him. When I wrote him I told him the letter was a way of thanking him for taking the time forty years ago to handwrite me a letter and how much it meant. I alluded to our political differences, but the emphasis was on acknowledging his kindness. Lo and behold I just received today a handwritten (this time in blue felt pen) the loveliest letter from Jon. He shared how grateful he was to know I remembered his letter and what it meant for me, and how touched he was to hear from me and mentioned his politics in a few words only. Like my letter to him, in return his was filled with love and how we are all inter-connected, all the same in our love, and how we can truly see through Christ’s vision when we see each other as our beloved brother.

Thanks as always, Bev, for your marvelous, humorous and joyous weekly presentations. Hugs to the fabulous MDC family.
