For quite some time I have heard about ACIM, A Course In Miracles. In getting some direction how to apply these teachings into my daily spiritual practice I made a commitment to following ACIM on a daily level.
This site has been the best resource for me http://www.themiracletimes.com/
I must say that in starting my day with “the thought” or “teachings” of the day I have made some peaceful and gradual shifts in how I think, look and ultimately act. Then along comes this morning’s lesson, Lesson 23 “There is another way of looking at the world”
“But I like my thoughts, what’s wrong with the way I “look at the world” “ is what I actually said out loud in the quiet of the morning. “Oh my gosh” I then thought and asked myself “are you married to your thoughts”? Through these and many other spiritual teachings I recognized several things
A) My need to be right
B) EGO (Edging God Out)
C) Resistance to change
All three things and thoughts that I presumed were far from my programming. Apparently not.
So, “just for today” I will look another way at the world. I will embrace the calmness needed, the detachment needed and the insight gained.
