Is Peace a Rare Commodity?

by Beverly Hutchinson McNeff

Peace seems to be a rare commodity these days. Wars rage around the world and even in our own backyards. Perhaps you have experienced family challenges, health issues, or just a feeling of malaise. But you are entitled to so much more; you are entitled to miracles!

A miracle is nothing more than a resetting of our minds to the truth of who we are and what we are entitled to. This awareness allows us to be in the world but not of this world – to use these temporal experiences as a doorway to the peace that will lead us home. And there is no better manual to lead on this journey than A Course in Miracles, as it says…

“Forget not that the motivation for this course is the attainment and the keeping of the state of peace. Given this state the mind is quiet, and the condition in which God is remembered is attained.” (T-24.in.1)

This needs to be our motivation now as well. We can’t wait for outside circumstances to change for us to be at peace, we need to make the internal shift that will heal our lives. For this reason, we started our Holy Encounter Retreats nearly ten years ago. These retreats allow us to encounter the Course, nature, and each other in an accepting, healing, and transformative environment. After two cancellations during the pandemic, we are all overdue for the experiential recharge these retreats provide. We look forward to gathering together again in our high desert paradise as we deepen our understanding and practice of A Course in Miracles together.

I will bring an open heart and my 45 years of Course study to this weekend that I know will leave you with the tools and understanding you’ll need to experience miracles in your life.

As attendees have shared…
