Legend or Learning?

Legend has it that the first brownie was made at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, Illinois at the request of Bertha Palmer, socialite and wife of the owner, Potter Palmer. She wanted something cake-like and small that could be served to the ladies at the Columbian Exposition for the Chicago World’s fair of 1893. Working with the hotel pastry chef, she came up with this delicious confection. In 1898 the first reference to the brownie in America appeared in the Sears Roebuck Catalog published in Chicago. If you like your brownies…

Love Created Me Like Itself

This thought is the cornerstone on which A Course in Miracles is built because it is the truth. From love is everything possible for our healing and the healing of the world. This thought is the reason why “you are the light of the world” …“why God appointed you as the world’s savior” …“why the Son of God looks to you for his salvation.” The Son of God is saved because, “Love created you like itself.” As this lesson goes on to say…

Call Me Trim Tab

Richard Buckminster Fuller was an American architect, author, inventor, and futurist. Probably best known for his creation of the geodesic dome, Fuller dedicated his life to making the world work for all humanity. What a wonderful purpose! When Fuller died, the following words were inscribed on his gravestone: “CALL ME TRIMTAB.” If you have ever wondered how mighty sailing ships turn, you probably thought it had to do with a rudder…

Tag, You’re It

I watched the Golden Globes the other night. Usually these award shows are a mix of boring speeches, crazy fashion, and shows I’ve never heard of. This year, however, it seemed to have a very cohesive message of self-empowerment and kindness. One speech really stuck out to me…

New Book on ACIM

Dr. Bob Rosenthal has been a student and teacher of A Course in Miracles for over forty years. As co-president of the Foundation for Inner Peace, he recognized the need for a series of books that could help those who have heard of the Course and feel drawn to it, but may need a leg up to get started. In this, the first book of the series, Dr. Rosenthal approaches the Course from an entirely fresh perspective. Using common sense wisdom and sharing from his own experience as both a psychiatrist and Course student, he unpacks the core elements of the Course’s teaching in a clear and comprehensible manner…

MacGyver a Miracle

As we enter another new year, a lot of emotions come up. As we clean up and reset our minds from the holidays, some of us feel overwhelmed about starting yet another year from zero, some of us feel nothing since we have started many new years with not much changing, and some of us may be feeling a new stirring within our souls. A little sense that you are willing for a new perception to come to you so that you might walk through this world in a lighter and more connected experience. Perhaps a feeling where you truly know that everything you need for your awakening, your salvation, is available to you right now…

A New Year’s Resolution

Philosophers, poets, and, yes, even actor Morgan Freeman (who has played God many times in the movies) have pondered the thought, “Where is Heaven?” But this thought from Hugh Prather’s book, Morning Notes, seems to give us the best answer, as well as a perfect decision with which to begin the New Year…

A New Seminar in 2019

We’re all looking for guidance that will bring us a life of happiness, peace, and direction. We look everywhere. We open up fortune cookies, we study our astrological charts, and we ask psychics to gaze into our palms. We look and look outside of ourselves to find the purpose of our lives and the world when A Course in Miracles is offering us another plan. In this workshop we will explore practical ways to experience the guidance we are seeking. In the Course we are told that God’s Voice speaks to us all through the day, so let’s accept its assurance and follow the plan it sets forth for us.

My “Special Stocking”

Each year when my brother and I were growing up, my mom would hang our stockings on the mantle. She had two stockings made for us with our names sewn on in a fancy stitch. They were made a very long time ago, so this kind of specialty work was very precious and not found in every store or mail order magazine as it is today. Those stockings always represented to me my parents’ love for us…
