Thoughts on Lesson 225

God is my Father, and His Son loves Him.

All embraced in the Circle of Love with God. No one is left outside the Circle. I must take you with me, for you are me.

I’ve had different people come to mind over the last week. Those people who I felt deceived or wronged me in some way. I have to keep them within the Circle of Love. I may not keep them in my life, still they are God’s Son and still they deserve Love on the level of the Divine. I bless them all instead of counting up the hurts. There is a peace that arrives when I do so.

Thoughts on Week 19, Text, Chapter 11, IV. The Inheritance of God’s Son

Who I am in truth does not need saved, it is my mind that has forgotten and needs to relearn what salvation is. I open myself to the learning as I will see that I have the power within me to be saved, to save my brothers and to remember peace.

Here in the world I think that I am limited. Yet when I embrace the peace that I am I realize how unlimited I truly am. Nothing holds me back.

Here, I am the one responsible for the deprivation I seem to suffer. It is in this realization that I see I have control of my thoughts, what I think, what decisions I make and what I do. This is the reversal of the thought system ruled by an iron fist. No more will I be locked under blame and guilt as I see the ego for the sham that is is.

God waits for me to accept my holy self, ever glorious and sacred now and forever.

Thoughts on Week 9 – Text – Chapter 6, I. The Message of the Crucifixion

Chapter 6, I. The Message of the Crucifixion

Come down from the cross. You needn’t place yourself where you do not belong. There is no need for blood and sacrifice. You who are God’s Son shall only know your glory. You have placed the nails in your hands many times as you allowed the fear and hatred to whip you in pain and drive you away from your Divine splendor. You are Love and that therefore, is what you are here to teach. As you teach it, you will remember it. The rest are just useless playthings. Put away the toys of fear and sit upon your rightful throne in the Kingdom of God.

From Darkness to Light, Pt. 2

We continue today with paragraph 2 of this week’s reading in Chapter 11, Section III. From Darkness to Light.

T-11.III.2.             God’s Son is indeed in need of comfort, for he knows not what he does, believing his will is not his own. 2 The Kingdom is his, and yet he wanders homeless. 3 At home in God he is lonely, and amid all his brothers he is friendless. 4 Would God let this be real, when He did not will to be alone Himself? 5 And if your will is His it cannot be true of you, because it is not true of Him.

Before God was prevalent in my life, it was as if I was walking around in a depressing, gray fog. The gifts of love surrounded me everywhere, yet I continued to see myself as alone and unlovable. I believed it wholeheartedly. There was an aimlessness. I walked around looking for love “in all the wrong places” and never found it. I never found the comfort that I wanted desperately. But there was another way. And that way came. It was there within me the light shining in the darkness. The flame never burning out. I had to embrace what God embraced. These days to be vigilant for that spark of light within because even on some level I can forget and it is evident in those moments when I silently criticize myself. Yet, there is always another decision I can make and one for truth.

One Who Is Like God


Another cat story….

Misha is our other black cat, tiny, with just a tip of white at the end of her tail. Her name means “One Who is like God”. The name was not given purposefully as it was a total accident when she was given that name. Our daughters Allison and Autumn came up with the name when we adopted her two years ago and later I had looked up its meaning and was pleasantly surprised.

I was reminded of this as she just sat her right before the monitor and keyboard wanting her morning affection before I started working here in the home office. I am reminded of this also because as I write this, today’s lesson is Lesson 110 – I am as God created me.

If we are as God created us then we are joyful and at peace; we have no cares in the world, and no anxieties or worries. We are simply as our Father intended us to be.

Misha embodies this with her personality. I have always joked that with that just little white tip of tail that she carries the Light with her wherever she goes. It is quite amusing to see her go by and all you see is the tail held high with the light shining away wherever she wanders. That is for us too. If we want freedom from the past and the fearful, judgmental thoughts in our mind, then we too need to carry our Light high. We need to know the goodness that we are. If we seek the Truth, deep within our mind, then we will know it to be true.

That is what Lesson 110 would have us do.

We are to know that God created us. We are to honor ourselves. We are to remember that we are God’s Son. We are no longer lost but found.

Misha is a joyful, playful, jovial and upbeat cat. No matter what is going on she can bring a smile to the face when I am feeling ill or sad. She loves to love. She embodies the truth of us all. We want be joyful and we want to recognize the truth. We want peace. All of this we can have when we let go of our own beliefs about ourselves, all of the judgments, the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s, and just know that our Father created us in Love and LOVE is Who we are.

See the reminders everywhere of our Father’s Love for us. Holy Spirit has placed them there for us to remember. These reminders lead us Home.

Look around you and notice where your reminders are appearing today. They may appear as a little black cat that happily crosses your path today.
