I think of myself as a seeker. Someone, who is searching to understand who I am, where I come from, and why I am here on the planet at this time. I often refer to myself as a spiritual mutt because my beliefs are a compilation from many traditions.
I often begin each day with this prayer:
“On this day, where would you have me go?
What would you have me do?
What would you have me say and to whom?”
This prayer comes from a very potent and important teaching known as A COURSE IN MIRACLES. I find that this prayer is a great way to connect to my heart and purpose as I get ready to start each new day.
For those who tell me they lack love in their life, I often quote another favorite line from A Course In Miracles:
“The only thing that can be missing in any situation is that which you are not giving.”
I have found this to be true. When I focus on giving love, almost instantly the love is returned. I truly believe learning the principles of the Course helped prepare me to manifest and be able to receive the level of love I now have in my life.
Way back in 1985 I was introduced to the Course, by my dear friend Marianne Williamson and I have always looked to her for guidance in understanding these teachings. Many of you are already familiar with her books, including her blockbuster, A RETURN TO LOVE: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles that introduced millions of people to these teachings. (You’ve probably seen her on Oprah and other national TV shows.)
For those of you who wish to learn more, Marianne is offering a special weekend workshop in Los Angeles, July 1 – 3 where she will cover the principles of the Course, how to do the exercises and incorporate Course principles into your daily life. This intensive workshop will be a rare opportunity to learn from the woman who is recognized throughout the world as one of the foremost teachers of A Course In Miracles. Please visit:
