"I will forgive and this will disappear." Such is the lesson God would have us learn to free ourselves from every form of suffering and in all our tribulations. (Lesson 193) Tonight we explore the way to peace through self forgiveness. Our forgivenss is the "key that opens Heaven's gate." In the text of the Course, we learned that sometimes as we learn to stop blaming and judging others and the world outside of us, if we are not careful and aware, there can be a tendancy to then blame and condemn ourselves, to turn those false projections on ourselves. THIS IS EQUALLY FALSE. We are as innocent as the brothers and sisters we forgive. Tonight we will read from Lessons 193 and 198 and remind oursleves that "Only my condemnation injures me. Only my own forgiveness sets us free." (198) Let's commit ourselves to forgiving not only the world outside of us, but ourselves as well. We have all erred and made mistakes. But God does not condemn mistakes --of any kind--nor need we.
In tonight's episode, we will look at today's lesson (240) and find the great comfort that it offers us; "Fear is not justified in any form." Whatever form your particular fear may take, it is "but witness to your own illusions of yourself." It is not true or real! We can train ourselves to look past these illusions to the truth and be freed from the effects of illusion/fear--which in truth can have no real effects , since they do not come for the level of Cause. We can choose to remember that "There is no fear in us, for we are part of Love Itself." ANd we can choose to focus on that truth in each other as well. We will also read from chapter 17, section 8 (in the original editionof the Course published by the Course in Miracles Society) "The Need for Faith."
This week, we read from and discuss Lessons 189 and 190. Noone wants to suffer pain, but we have forgotten how much power we have over the experience of it. As stated in lesson 190 (I choose the joy of God instead of Pain), "Pain is a sign illusions reign in place of truth." How can we let those illusions go and welcome truth? By changing our thoughts-""It is your thoughts alone that cause you pain." As we change our thoughts, we change our world, both inner and outer. The very world we perceive is a "representation of our thoughts." These metaphysical principles are basic to the teachings of the Course. And we can truly benefit from them as far more than just pretty intellectual exercises as we share them and practice them.So call in tonight and experience the healing and peace that comes from actually sharing them --experience your Self--radiant in this holy joy...forever."
The Course in Miracles is a powerful transformational tool to assist us in changing our perceptions of this world so that we might experience greater peace in every experience and every encounter. The daily lessons gently undo our habitual, conflict-laden ways of thinking and of seeing the world and help us to acquire a new kind of perception based on love and foregiveness.
Together we will explore how we can apply the wisdom of the Course in our daily lives, and become more availalbe to help, heal and uplift others and ourselves. I have been a student and teacher of the Course for over 20 years and love more than anything exploring these these teachings with others. I look forward to sharing the journey to joy through the Course with you whether you are brand new to it or a seasoned student.
In tonight's episode,we will explore the text in Chapter 30 about the "the only purpose" of the world. It will come as no surprize to Course students that it is forgiveness. And we will learn that it is in joining with our brothers and sisters in shared purpose that we become aware of "the real world' and the will we share with God.
We will also read and discuss Lessons 168 and 169 in the Workbook on that mysterious subject of grace. Please join us and call in with your thoughts on these topics or anything else going on in your world.
Join us tonight as we review and discuss two startling and provocative lessons in the Course in Miracles; Lessons 135 and 136. How might we actually be making ourselves sick when we set up defenses and make plans to protect and defend ourselves against percieved threats? And what is it that we feel is threatened and needs defense? How can we learn invite perfect, effortless health and happiness into our lives? The answers are linked to what we believe our "self" really is; do we accept a bodily identification, and therefore see ourselves as fragile, limited and easily threatened, or do we identify ourselves as Mind--unlimited, one eternally with Source and with every Mind in creation? And what could possibly be meant by "The healed mind does not plan"? (Lesson 135) Explore with me how it is that our true safety and freedom lie in our defenselessness. I hope you will call in and say hello and share your thoughts.
Tonight we examine three lessons that will help us in bringing more joy (truth) and less pain (illusion) into our lives. We start with today's lesson, 233 "I give my life to God to Guide today" and also discuss lessons 190, "I choose the joy of God instead of pain," and lesson 228, " God has condemed me not. No more do I." Together we can strengthen these truths in our lives so that each day is filled with more and more peace, as we offer our willingness to "lay down our arms" (of self judgement and the like) and choose the peace and joy of God, and to experience the "countless gifts and mercies unto us" from a "Love Whose tenderness (we) cannot comprehend."

What does salvation mean? What would we need to be saved from? A Course in Miracles teaches that “Salvation is undoing in the sense that it does nothing, failing to support the world of dreams and malice. Thus it lets illusions go.” It is a promise given to us by our Creator that we would find our way back home to peace and Love.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos, and the guidance of Lessons 231-240 of A Course in Miracles, we explore the salvation definition and why irregardless of religious beliefs, when we let go of illusions, or self-concepts of what we are, the truth is revealed to all that seek it. Lesson 229 says, “I seek my own Identity, and find It in these words: ‘Love, which created me, is what I am.’”
The road to salvation is not just for a few. Salvation is the healing of our split mind through the undoing of the ego thought system which is unreal. It is our decision to stop believing fear based ideas that support hate and guilt that seem to separate. Lesson 235 reminds us, “I need but look upon all things that seem to hurt me, and with perfect certainty assure myself, ‘God wills that I be saved from this,’ and merely watch them disappear.”

In tonight's show, we will read from and discuss Chapter8--"The Journey Back," as well as briefly discuss this past weeks Review lessons 201 through 205. We are truly not alone here; the "light of the world " goes with us. Does it ever feel like when you step forward towards God's will/your will for yourself you are beset with difficulties or fears/? That is because the ego finds it so threatening to realize it is being left behind that it becomes retaliative. This can be very uncomfortabel for us! But we can take comfort knowing who walks with us and leads us on this path to our /God's will--our elder brother the Christ. As we learn to join our minds more and more with him who has overcome and left behind the ego already, we will be free from the seeming attacks of the frightened ego mind. We will return more and more easily to the joy and peace that is God's will for us.
What is atonement according to A Course in Miracles? What is the Atonement? It is the Holy Spirit’s plan for salvation. It is the journey of the fractured Sons of God, guided by the Voice for Gode, from enslavement in the Egypt of materiality through the desert of purification to the Promised Land of abiding oneness with God. It is the process of forgiveness, the return to true sight, the dis-identification with the body and the ego. It is the way Home.

Can something aimed to save our life really save it when it also imposes a threat to it? The (stress) survival mode response embodies this contradiction. Modern medicine has now made it clear that there are detrimental effects of stress on health. Must we now survive the threat posed by our very own instinct of survival? Clearly this approach cannot save us as it only imposes more threat.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos and the guidance of Lessons 131-158 of A Course in Miracles, we attempt to move beyond survival and attack, exploring the cause of stress and why survival as a plan to defend ourselves from danger and death only reinforces the fearful belief that we are weak and vulnerable bodies/egos; thereby increasing the stress associated with the fear that only the strongest or fittest will survive.
Lesson 135 says, “Enslavement of the body to the plans the unhealed mind sets up to save itself must make the body sick. It is not free to be the means of helping in a plan which far exceeds it own protection, and which needs its service for a little while. In this capacity is health assured.”
We look at Lesson 136 which says, “Sickness is a defense against the truth” and why “No one can heal unless he understands what purpose sickness seems to serve. Being causeless and without a meaningful intent of any kind, it cannot be at all. When this is seen, healing is automatic.”

What is forgiveness? What is our mind doing when it forgives and when it does not? A Course in Miracles teaches that “Forgiveness recognizes what you thought your brother did to you has not occurred.” It distinguishes it from pardoning because in pardoning the sin or trespass is still there and made real in our mind.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos, we explore the definition of forgiveness with the guidance of Lessons 221-230 in A Course in Miracles seeking the experience of only truth. We want to understand how forgiveness clears or releases the perception of the “wrong” someone did to us, or that we did to our self. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) can show us this process in action.
Unforgiveness keeps us stuck in unreality and internal suffering, “It sets about its furious attempts to smash reality, without concern for anything that would appear to pose a contradiction to its point of view.”ACIM.
We look at what sin is and why “He who would not forgive must judge, for he must justify his failure to forgive. But he who would forgive must learn to welcome truth exactly as it is.” ACIM.
