The Voice for God Brings Joy | Insights on A Course in Miracles

With God, all we do is create more love, because it’s perfect. And that’s the only because it’s perfect, there is no choice. That’s all there is to do.

In this new video, you will find excerpts from my sharing with those that gathered for our time together. You are always welcome to join us on any given Sunday.

Choose Joy, Not Pain | Insights on A Course in Miracles

At our Sunday Study Group, we shared on Text, Ch. 7, X. The Confusion of Pain and Joy and Lesson 190 – I choose the joy of God instead of pain.

In this new video, you will find excerpts from my sharing with those that gathered for our time together.

One of the things that I learned from the Holy Spirit, many years ago, and Jesus, is that you can go to them for advice, and they’ll give you advice, but they’re not going to force you to do anything you don’t want to do. They won’t force you to sacrifice, and they will always give you your options.

The Responsibility for Sight

At last Wednesday’s Study Group, Gayle and Mari were guided to share the reading in the Text, Chapter 21, II. The Responsibility for Sight. This proved helpful to those who attended.

There was a great podcast series on the “Responsibility for Sight” reading that Rev. Deb, Gayle and Mari did a few years ago. I’m sharing it with you below to help further round out your study of this reading. Take a listen!

The series is in five parts. See righthand corner to toggle.

In this week’s video, you will find excerpts from my teaching to students in the January 15th Sunday study group. You are always welcome to join us on any given Sunday.

Cultivating the Relationship with Spirit, Pt. 2

This week we follow up with last week’s teaching with Part Two of “Cultivating the Relationship with Spirit” presented by Rev. Deb.

As ACIM says: If you would but let the Holy Spirit tell you of the Love of God for you, and the need your creations have to be with you forever, you would experience the attraction of the eternal. T-15.IX.5:1

In Part 2 of this 2 part series: Rev. Deb gives Daily Steps that you can use to continue to cultivate your relationship with the Holy Spirit. In this, we can let the Holy Spirit share with you how much you are cherished by God.

See video below.

ACIM Reading References for Teaching:

  • Text, Ch. 5, II. The Voice for God
  • Text, Ch. 14, VII. Sharing Perception with the Holy Spirit
  • Lesson 106 – Let me be still and listen to the truth.
  • Lesson 124 – Let me remember I am one with God.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this idea of cultivating our relationship with the Holy Spirit.

You can join in our study groups, or our email or Facebook groups.

In Peace,

Revs. Paul and Deb

What I Hear the Most

deer behind grass

What I hear the most from students over the last few decades of working in groups and individually with students is that they want to hear the Voice for God (or Holy Spirit or Jesus) speaking to them. This is the number one request of students besides any other topic related to A Course in Miracles.

Rev. Paul wanted the same when I first met him when he was a brand-new ACIM student and came to my study group in February 2003 when we were both still living in Pittsburgh.

We all start somewhere, and it is that desire to receive guidance and wisdom in our lives. I know that was true for me around 1990 or so, when I was a single parent, having a hard time in my life and was encouraged to read “A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson by my therapist.

It opened my eyes, my heart and my mind. I had been meditating since 1980 and was drawn to Eastern philosophies and studies. I embraced ACIM wholeheartedly at the time. I already knew the power of silence and listening within but studying ACIM then helped me go a little deeper and truly pay attention to what love truly was and that I was in fact loved by God. Fittingly, I bought the actual ACIM book on Valentine’s Day.

As I shared with you earlier this week, the key to listening is cultivating the relationship with Holy Spirit. Just like any relationship there are times we speak and times we listen. All too often in relationships we have our agenda and speak incessantly rather than listening.

I hope with the tips that I give in this first part and what’s to come in part two that you will receive benefit in your relationship with Holy Spirit.

Blessings,

Rev. Deb

Cultivating the Relationship with Spirit

Earlier this week in our first newsletter of the year for our new theme, we shared a teaching from our archives. This teaching was “Cultivating the Relationship with Spirit” presented by myself. As we launch this year of “Listening to Inner Wisdom,” it’s important to establish our relationship with the Holy Spirit so we can in fact hear His Wisdom.

Take a moment and reflect:

  • What do I want this relationship with the Holy Spirit to look like?
  • What would I like the communication with Him to be like?
  • How can I cultivate the relationship with Him?
  • What blocks stand in the way of this relationship?

Keep this in mind as your intention for the year.

As ACIM says: And the truth is that the Holy Spirit is in close relationship with you, because in Him is your relationship with God restored to you. T-17.IV.4:5

In this Part 1 of a two-part video teaching, I share that “We can cultivate our relationship with the Holy Spirit just as we do with anyone here in the world. We take time getting to know Him, we spend time with Him frequently, we connect, we trust, and we listen intently to what He has to say.”

ACIM Reading References for Teaching:

  • Text, Chapter 17, IV. The Two Pictures
  • Lesson 221 – Peace to my mind. Let all my thoughts be still.

In Part 2 of this teaching, that I will share next week, I share Daily Steps that you can use to continue to cultivate your relationship.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this idea of cultivating our relationship with the Holy Spirit.

You can join in our study groups, here in this email group or our Facebook group.

Peace all,

Rev. Deb

Being a Miracle Worker: Lessons 346-352 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Greetings Miracle Workers,

In today’s episode of Insights on A Course in Miracles, I review the last “What Is?” reading, “What Am I?”, plus I recap how you have become Miracle Workers over the past year. When we first started working with the lessons in the Workgroup for Students, most were living lives that felt lost, pointless, misguided, chaotic, miserable, and a litany of other depressing descriptions. Now, nearly a year later, you have not only begun to learn and truly understand that you are something much greater. You have also begun to experience that we all have a Friend who is helping us to awaken from the dream of misery and is teaching us how to truly become Miracle Workers. After a year’s worth of dedication, hard work, and practice of the daily lessons, what a wonderful Christmas gift you have given to yourselves this year!

Merry Christmas, Rev. Paul
