The Miracle of Creation: Lessons 318-324

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone,

This week we truly have good reason for a sense of gratitude because of our Creation by God. In this week’s episode of A Course in Miracles we take a look at the Workbook for Students reading, “11. What Is Creation?”. In this video I explain the miracle of our Creation by God and how we continue to extend Creation with Him in heaven. We also dive into the miracle of the Holy Spirit, the Light within us, and the Voice of the Holy Spirit who are here to help us awaken from our dream of physical form.

Many Blessings,

Rev. Paul

The Last Judgment: Lessons 304-317

Greetings Course Students,

Unlike what many of us have been taught, the concept of the Last Judgment as explained by Jesus is not going to be a rapture and condemnation to hell event. Instead, it’s going to be a wonderful event where we finally make a joyful and peaceful transition back into heaven. It is an event that we should be looking forward too and not dreading. To learn more about this wonderful experience, watch this episode of Insights on A Course in Miracles where I dive into two readings on this topic: “10. What is the Last Judgment?” (Workbook) and “The Meaning of the Last Judgement” (T-2.VIII).

Many Blessings,

Rev. Paul

Many Blessings, Rev. Paul

Grieving the Loss of Pets: Lessons 283-296 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Hello Course Students,

If you have ever experienced the painful loss of a pet whom you loved with all your heart, then this is the ACIM Insight video for you. This morning while working on Lesson 296: The Holy Spirit speaks through me today; I was completely surprised by an unexpected path of healing that the Holy Spirit took me down. Within a few minutes I found myself once again grieving the loss of a pet I lost four years ago this month. As I worked through the experience with the Holy Spirit, I received many messages that I believe were meant for all of us to hear. I think the experience is a great example of one of the many ways that the Holy Spirit can heal and communicate through us in an effort to help all.

Peace & Blessings,

Rev. Paul

Our Friend The Holy Spirit: Lessons 276-282 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Cheers Course Students, Over the past week we worked with Lessons 276 through 282 and read through, What is the Holy Spirit?. Besides having God as our Creator, the most important presence in our lives is the gift of the Holy Spirit given to us by God. Without Him we would never truly learn how to happily navigate through life and awaken from the dream of fear. The Holy Spirit is our personal friend and guide Who has many gifts He is waiting to share with us. To learn more about these gifts and who He is as our guide, check out this video.

Many Blessings, Rev. Paul

We are the Christ: Lessons 263-275 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Hello Course Students, In this week’s episode of A Course in Miracles I touch on the Lessons we worked this past week, Lessons 269 through 275, plus I shared insights on the reading, What is the Christ? I personally found this to be pleasant and joyful reading because Jesus explains very clearly in just a few paragraphs exactly what our reality is with God, the Holy Spirit and one another. The supporting Lessons are also exciting because they’re teaching us how to awaken the dormant psychic abilities we all have, so that we can learn how to see and hear the Christ within us. How amazing is that?!

Many Blessings, Rev. Paul

Peeking Over the Fence of Separation: Lessons 255-261 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Cheers Mighty Companions!

Over the past week we worked with Lessons 255 through 261 in the Workbook for Students, and reviewed the reading, What Is the Body? In this reading, Jesus explains that we, as the Son of God, made an image of a body for ourselves that is used to fence us off from the awareness of heaven. It is also a home of fear that has been distorted in our minds to be a place of safety. In this episode of Insights on A Course in Miracles, I share an insight I received from the Holy Spirit about our awakening process. As students of A Course in Miracles, our curiosity has us peeking over the fence line to see what is on the other side. Of course, it’s the Holy Spirit who is gently calling us to come home. One day, we will happily jump over the fence and run joyfully across the lawns to heaven back home. What a wonderful thought!

Many Blessings,

Rev. Paul

Our Journey into Illusions: Lessons 241-254 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Cheers Mighty Companions!

In this episode of Insights on A Course in Miracles, we take a look at the illusion of the world and the belief in the illusion of “sin”. These topics were inspired from the lessons we worked on over the past two weeks (Lessons 241 through 254) and their respective readings, What Is the World? and What is Sin? Once again, Jesus reminds us that the world and everything we experience within it is an illusion. I found it helpful to relate it to a novel that an author might write. In many novels, whole new worlds, lands, beings and sets of mythical laws are created from the imagination of an author. The readers then lose themselves in the stories for their own entertainment. Jesus explains that we did something similar as the Son or Daughter of God. We drafted an illusion of a physical world that blocks out the awareness of God, then allowed ourselves to become lost within the journey almost indefinitely. Then, to add more drama to the story, our ego minds drafted painful beliefs about ourselves and others such as evilness, sinfulness, and guilt. What a mess! Thank God, Jesus has given us a solution to waking up from the story and closing the book once and for all. Keep working those Lessons!

Many Blessings,

Rev. Paul

Five Waves of Peace: Lessons 234-240 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Cheers Course Students,

This past week we worked on Lessons 234 through 240 in the Workbook for Students. One of the things that many students struggle with when going through the Lessons for the first time is the struggle to give up the thinking mind. Prior to working with A Course in Miracles, the ego mind became used to trying to figure things out with ourselves and our lives through analysis and contemplation. A key thing to realize is that this is only a delaying maneuver and will only waste time. Try to recognize when you are doing this and then stop and give yourself permission to set it aside. The Lessons we are working with now are teaching us how to go within and simply commune with God. Remember to give up your thoughts and to practice having no thoughts during your meditations, and then just wait for the Holy Spirit to bring forth waves of peace within you. These are gifts from God that will fill you with joy in the manner of minutes instead of hours or days of wasted contemplation.

Love,

Rev. Paul

Letting Go and Trusting God: Lessons 213-233 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Greetings Course Students,

In this episode of Insights on A Course in Miracles is a reminder that we are learning how to let the Light of God do the forgiving work for us. In my experience, this is most easily accomplished through our practice of meditation. When we go within to consult with the Holy Spirit, he will remind us to forget about “trying” to forgive but instead to practice reaching the Light and letting It “do” the forgiving for us. This is a big difference when compared to the way that we were taught about the practice of forgiveness by many religious traditions. The practice is not easy at first because we are so used to doing things for ourselves. So we practice during our meditations in “letting go” and “trusting God” to do it for us. That is the focus of the Lessons we practice now.

Many Blessings, Rev. Paul

Healing Your Inner Child: Lessons 199- 212 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Hello Everyone,

Over the past two weeks we worked through Lessons 199 through 212 in the Workbook for Students. In this episode of Insights on A Course in Miracles I focus on the review lesson 212 which takes us back to a review of Lesson 192: I have a function God would have me fill. In this lesson, Jesus reminds us of the importance of forgiveness. I also share an experience I had with the Holy Spirit this morning where He helped me to heal an Inner Child that had been stuck in pain for many years. I am grateful for the unexpected lesson and healing experience. Thank you, Holy Spirit.

Love,

Rev. Paul

Breaking Free of Critical Thoughts: Lessons 192-198 | Insights on A Course in Miracles

Hello Course Students,

This past week we worked on Lessons 192 through 198 in the Workbook for Students. However, there was one Lesson that stood out and it was 196: It can be but myself I crucify. Within this lesson Jesus addresses a huge problem we all struggle with and that is the habit of having critical thoughts about other people. He explains that this habit keeps us trapped within the belief in separation and ultimately delays our awakening from the dream. Within this episode of Insights on A Course in Miracles, I take a deeper look at this particular form of the problem and offer suggestions on how to break ourselves free of it.

Many Blessings,

Rev. Paul
