God is the strength in which I trust

I was watching an episode of the BBC’s nature series Frozen Planet which featured an amazing little creature called the Arctic Woolly Bear Caterpillar. This little fellow has a very interesting life-cycle. He begins eating voraciously as soon as spring begins in the Arctic, when there is finally vegetation to consume. Because of this short season, he will not consume enough to complete his metamorphosis by the time the ground freezes once again. So, the Woolly Bear does an astonishing thing…

Join Lessons in Light

Because of the current world situation, you may be feeling a sense of isolation, and we want to help. In our weekly meetings, we are currently in our Lessons in Light series, which follows the forty days (traditionally known as Lent) leading up to Easter. This series is about releasing our sacrificing thoughts and awakening to our power – that’s something we all need to focus on now.

With that in mind, we want to make this entire series available to our ACIM family as a gift. As always you can watch the meetings free every Wednesday at 7:05pm (Pacific Time), or you can watch at your convenience by subscription. We feel that all our current subscribers will want to join us in welcoming anyone who wants to view these meetings and experience the power and inspiration they bring. That is why we are providing a link that will lead you to the past three lessons, and, from here on out, we will archive for free the remaining meetings in the series. We hope you will be blessed by these gatherings and feel the power of joining together.

The Cost of Grievances

Health experts have declared that we are in a worldwide pandemic. As serious as this sounds, and you should be taking precautions, fear does nothing to help. I know that fear is the natural knee-jerk reaction, but, as we are told in A Course in Miracles, fear only leaves us in a fog of illusions and now is the time for clarity and truth. With that said, we are not to deny our fearful thoughts but to clearly look at what is causing us concern and invite the Holy Spirit into those thoughts so they can be transformed into a miraculous awareness. As we are told in the Course…

Paradise Found

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” We have all heard this quote by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (F.D.R.), which was given as part of his first inauguration speech in 1933. At that time, the depression had reached its depth, and his message was solemn, but hopeful. F.D.R. noted that the nation’s common difficulty concerned “only material things.” As he said, “The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit”…

Sacrificing Sacrifice

As lesson 323 in A Course in Miracles says, “I gladly make the ‘sacrifice’ of fear.” If the idea of releasing fear and sacrifice appeal to you, then perhaps we can use the traditional time of Lent as a way to do just that. The Course invites us to look with a new vision, guided by the Holy Spirit, to view the ideas of Christianity in a new light. Not one that separates us from each other, but one that unites us in healing. Therefore, during this time that leads up to Easter…

The Inevitable Cure

During the cold and flu season this year, I decided to participate. Though it hung on for over two weeks, it seemed like two years! Finally, the fog lifted and I was back to my old self, but the experience did get me thinking. No, not about why I got sick….or what I was defending against (as you know, A Course in Miracles tells us “sickness is a defense against the truth”)…or how come I didn’t realize: “I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.”

When I am in the midst of my sickness…

A Miraculous Valentine’s Story

It was Valentine’s Day and Joey was busy making valentines for everyone in his class. His mother was happy to see her little boy so joyful, but she was worried that the other children would not remember to give a valentine to Joey. You see, Joey was a little slower than the rest of the kids, and he was often forgotten and not given much value by them. That did not seem to stop him, though, in getting into the spirit of Valentine’s Day. Joey was determined not to forget even one child…
