Knowing right from wrong…

Greetings Love!!!

I have been practicing releasing ALL judgement for a while now but especially as of late.  It’s something I’m aware I had to do for my own wellness and sanity!!

This is the message that came through this morning regarding our limited thinking about what what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’.

Here it is…I hope it’s helpful.

There is nothing inherently right or wrong with anything or anyone.  It’s your thoughts and ill judgements about yourself and your Brother (others) that make it seem that way.  You are certainly committed to your ideas about how you see the world!!

Something that feels right for you is not necessarily right for someone else..  Even if something that apparently feels right for someone else feels wrong for you, it’s still neither right or wrong for everyone.  That would be impossible!

Simply follow your own inner Guidance as to what is most appropriate and helpful in any given situation.  When your inner guidance is the result of your choice for Love not fear you don’t need to worry about the rest.    Just go on enjoying your day!!

In Love. ❤

Bringing Heaven’s Unity to the World – An ACIM inspired message from Pathways of Light.

peace-first_fotor“I could see peace instead of this. Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter. It must begin with your own thoughts, and then extend outward. It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises.”

“Search your mind for fear thoughts, anxiety-provoking situations, “offending” personalities or events, or anything else about which you are harboring unloving thoughts. Note them all casually, repeating [“I could see peace instead of this”] slowly as you watch them arise in your mind, and let each one go, to be replaced by the next.” (W-pI.34.1:2-4;3:2-3)

The practice of this lesson has the potential to heal our minds and bring back the remembrance of our Creator. It applies to all our perceptions in the world. Each time we tell ourselves, “I could see peace instead of this” we are strengthening our willingness to step back from the ego’s view and welcome the Holy Spirit’s vision that shows us Love and nothing else. With this vision there is no conflict, no need to defend, no thought of judgment, no guilt. Thus this practice opens the door to forgiveness and lets it shine away the dark shadows of the ego’s denial of Love.

We have a role to play in the salvation of the world. Each time we choose peace instead of conflict, we bring healing to the world. Each time we let the Holy Spirit answer calls for Love through us, we learn more deeply that we are Love and nothing else, along with every brother. We are less likely to exclude some “offenders” as unworthy of Love. As we lay these exclusions down, we join with our brothers and bring Heaven’s unity to the world.

Choosing the Path to Healing-ACIM Support

Living Life in Love

“You see what you expect, and you expect what you invite. Your perception is the result of your invitation, coming to you as you sent for it. Whose manifestations would you see? Of whose presence would you be convinced? For you will believe in what you manifest, and as you look out so will you see in. Two ways of looking at the world are in your mind, and your perception will reflect the guidance you have chosen.

“When you want only love you will see nothing else.”

“The power of decision is your one remaining freedom as a prisoner of this world. You can decide to see it right. What you made of it is not its reality, for its reality is only what you gave it. You cannot really give anything but love to anyone or anything, nor can you really receive anything but love from them. If you think you have received anything else, it is because you have looked within and thought you saw the power to give something else within yourself. It was only this decision that determined what you found, for it was the decision for what you sought.” (T-12.VII.5;8:1;9)

It seems hard to believe that the world we see is there by our invitation. We invite it by identifying with the ego. When we accept the ego thought system as our own, all of its wild imaginings seem to be ours. The core destructive aspect of the ego thought system is its wish for death, its wish to be separate from the Source of Life. All the seeming pleasant aspects of the world’s appearance are just camouflage for the underlying ego wish for separation and death. But this underlying wish still shows up in all the appearances of destruction in the world.

The means to release ourselves from the prison of the ego thought system is forgiveness. If we choose the Holy Spirit as our Guide in all our decisions, all our perceptions, we loosen the chains of the belief in fear. The Holy Spirit will always lead us to healing. The ego will always lead us to the appearance of death. We can choose the path to healing and release by choosing the Holy Spirit as our Guide.

Accepting Holy Spirit’s Purity (ACIM Study Support)

this-course-is-simple“The Course is Simple”

It feels so reassuring to read this.  It especially goes along with my Theme for 2017 – Simplify Everything.  

This message is from Pathways of Light- ACIM

I hope you find it helpful.

I love you!   ❤ ~ Rev. Cathy

 

“The reason why this course is simple, is that truth is simple. Complexity is of the ego, and is nothing more than the ego’s attempt to obscure the obvious. …The holy instant is a time in which you receive and give perfect communication. This means, however, that it is a time in which your mind is open, both to receive and give. It is the recognition that all minds are in communication. It therefore seeks to change nothing, but merely to accept everything.”

“Every thought you would keep hidden shuts communication off, because you would have it so.”

“The necessary condition for the holy instant does not require that you have no thoughts that are not pure. But it does require that you have none that you would keep. Innocence is not of your making. It is given you the instant you would have it. Atonement would not be if there were no need for it. You will not be able to accept perfect communication as long as you would hide it from yourself. For what you would hide is hidden. In your practice, then, try only to be vigilant against deception, and seek not to protect the thoughts you would keep to yourself. Let the Holy Spirit’s purity shine them away, and bring all your awareness to the readiness for purity He offers you. Thus will He make you ready to acknowledge that you are host to God, and hostage to no one and to nothing.” (T-15.IV.6:1-2,5-8;8:1;9:1-10)

The Holy Spirit is always there in our minds to help us undo our belief in separation. Belief in separation is the barrier that denies we are one with our Father.

As we are willing to forgive, or let go of the false belief in separation from our Father, we see that every brother is one with us in truth. We see that all differences are inherently false. We see that we are perfect Love and nothing else.

We are gently being freed from all thoughts of littleness and differences as we let the Holy Spirit shine away these false thoughts minute by minute, day by day. In truth every brother is host to God as we are. In truth we are one Light and we have one Life, the Life we live in God. All this comes with opening to Holy Spirit’s healing Light.

This is our practice for today.

Seeing the Reality of Harmlessness-ACIM Message

img_2241.jpg

Projection makes Perception – ACIM Message

“Projection makes perception. The world you see is what you gave it, nothing more than that. But though it is no more than that, it is not less. Therefore, to you it is important. It is the witness to your state of mind, the outside picture of an inward condition. As a man thinketh, so does he perceive. Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. Perception is a result and not a cause. And that is why order of difficulty in miracles is meaningless. Everything looked upon with vision is healed and holy. Nothing perceived without it means anything. And where there is no meaning, there is chaos.

“Damnation is your judgment on yourself, and this you will project upon the world. See it as damned, and all you see is what you did to hurt the Son of God. If you behold disaster and catastrophe, you tried to crucify him. If you see holiness and hope, you joined the Will of God to set him free. There is no choice that lies between these two decisions. And you will see the witness to the choice you made, and learn from this to recognize which one you chose. The world you see but shows you how much joy you have allowed yourself to see in you, and to accept as yours. And, if this is its meaning, then the power to give it joy must lie within you.” (T-21.In.1-2)

The Course says repeatedly that the body and the world we see are illusions. Illusions have no power of their own. Illusions are not real, so what illusions seem to do have no real effect.

Because this is true, forgiveness is justified. If there is no real effect, then there is really nothing to forgive. As we can learn to accept this, we free ourselves from the ego thought system of separation, fear and guilt. We are able to see the reality of harmlessness, innocence and the eternal, changeless Love we are in God.

Because we are so identified with the body as our identity, we need help to recognize that it is an illusion along with the world. By the grace of God, we have the Help we need to recognize illusions for what they are. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we can learn to see past the images of the world to see the face of Christ in everyone, everywhere. We can learn to look beyond appearances and let ourselves be shown that only Love is real. This is our practice for today.
