Do you believe in miracles?

A Course in Miracles defines a miracle as a shift in how we view things, but it has nothing to do with our eyes. It is a shift from visual sight to the inner vision of Christ consciousness. “The opposite of seeing through the body’s eyes is the vision of Christ, which reflects strength rather than weakness, unity rather than separation, and love rather than fear.”

I invite you to join me in the miracle of peace, joy and love that is our natural state and our guaranteed inheritance from God.

Namaste’

Surrendered #8/2014

ImageAfter two or three years of resistance and indecision, I finally had my thyroid surgically removed on Monday, April 14th. It was a three hour long procedure that involved working very close to my airway and vocal chords, so there were some reasons for concern. (I had actually cancelled the operation when it was scheduled a year ago to explore alternative treatments.) However, as the time for surgery drew nearer, I found myself becoming more and more peaceful. I not only accepted the inevitability of it. I came to a place of total surrender.

I am enormously grateful for the loving support and well wishes of all my friends. Thank you! I received many prayers and great advice about trusting, envisioning, and believing in a good outcome. But, more and more, I began to wonder, what would be a “good” outcome? A Course in Miracles tells me that I don’t know what anything is for, so how can I know what would be best for me? Every day I wake up and go to sleep with the same intention in my heart – to awaken to the divine truth about myself – my unlimitedness – my oneness with God. Having set that intention, I then have to trust that everything that happens is good for me. Could I have surgical complications? Yes. Lose my voice? Yes. Die? Yes. Have a completely uneventful and quick recovery? Yes. How do I know which of those outcomes might be the door to my spiritual awakening?

Five days after surgery, I sit here, more peaceful than I think I have ever been. Not because my surgery and recovery have been remarkably smooth, although I am delighted they have been. But, because I see how easily and wonderfully Spirit takes care of me when I totally get out of the way; because I have tasted the freedom that comes from complete trust in a benevolent and loving God; and because I have finally released (cut out) the blockage in my throat that, to me, symbolized my resistance to saying out loud to myself and the world, how very much I love Him.

Let your spirit soar!

Recently, I had yet another, even grander, experience of synchronicity – of having one of my desires come true in an unexpected and most delightful way. Perhaps I will relate the story sometime but, right now, I want to speak to the truth that made the story possible.

During the experience, I became more and more convinced that all I had to do was think of something I wanted and it would appear. I jokingly entertained the thought that I could “walk on water” if I wanted to. But, what I am learning is, if I truly believed it, I could walk on water right now. And so could you.

In the Way of Mastery, the voice of Jesus tells us over and over and over again, “I come forth as your equal . . .” He also says, “And, the very power that you have been using to try to convince yourself of your limitations is exactly the same power that I used to overcome death.” Wow! Instead of us thinking that Jesus was the only one able to break through the veil of death and fulfill God’s will completely, we need to realize that He was just the FIRST one to do it.

I understand that we teach what we most need to learn. I am certainly not walking on water yet. But, through the amazing events happening in my life, I know I am getting small glimpses of the vast power available to us all. So, my promise to you is that I will do my very best to never believe in your limitations. And, because it will help you to remember your own power, I ask that you help me to remember mine.

Namaste’ (the God in me recognizes the God in you),

Let your spirit soar! Paula
