Beginning a new year with the Course’s Workbook is a wonderful way to engage in mind training and right-minded perception. Our mind and inner state of being will benefit greatly from comitting ourselves to such a project. It is with the guidance of the Holy Spirit throughout the 365 lessons that we can begin to see through His Vision and in doing so, we begin to perceive the world and each of our sisters and brothers with kindness and compassion. The Introduction to the Workbook outlines the specific intention that students will undergo over the course of a year (or longer) in order to accomplish the curriculum of the Course. It is advised to do each lesson with our Higher Mind, in that we relinquish any room for doubt as we engage in the application of each lesson (see WB-Intro.9).
Sarah and Matthew once again unite to discuss their week as students of A Course In Miracles. Our meetup group is currently reading Chapter 8. We meet bi-weekly to discuss what we have read. Sarah is on Lesson 284 and felt that many others could benefit from a discussion on it, at this time. We are in mercury retrograde and in between eclipses. It is a powerful month for growth and Lesson 284 has a great theme along those lines. Plus, (I'm not going to lie, I really want to hear what Matthew has to say about it! :)
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
Loss is not loss when properly perceived. Pain is impossible. There is no grief with any cause at all. And suffering of any kind is nothing but a dream. This is the truth, at first to be but said and then repeated many times; and next to be accepted as but partly true, with many reservations. Then to be considered seriously more and more, and finally accepted as the truth. I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt. And I would go beyond these words today, and past all reservations, and arrive at full acceptance of the truth in them.
Father, what You have given cannot hurt, so grief and pain must be impossible. Let me not fail to trust in You today, accepting but the joyous as Your gifts; accepting but the joyous as the truth.
Are you part of an ACIM discussion group? Ever wonder about how to keep it healthy and growing with a long term plan? What types of philanthropic endeavors can a group do to create long term positive growth?
Sarah and Matthew from ACIM.LivingWithLove, a group in Southern Ontario, will be discussing group dynamics, health, growth and getting involved in the community.
If you have a group that is growing, you will definitely benefit from joining us and having a listen. Please join us as we talk about how to create harmonious flow and hopefully you will learn something to enhance your group as well.
Such a great question to get clarity on, and the way it is described in ACIM is sure to give listeners and readers some new insight.
An unforgiving thought does many things. In frantic action it pursus its goal, twisting and overturning what it sees as interfering with its chosen path. (how many times have we felt justified in our unforgiveness only to hold onto it so tightly and painfully?
Forgiveness, on the other hand, is still, and quietly does nothing. It offends no aspect of reality, nor seeks to twist it to appearances it likes. It merely looks, and waits, and judges not. He who would not forgive must judge, for he must justify his failure to forgive. But he who would forgive himself must learn to welcome truth exactly as it is.
Join me Sunday evenings to talk about ideas from 'A Course In Miracles.' ACIM is a profound teaching that helps you understand your deepest sense of Self, why you are here and what you must learn.
Rev. Jean Weston completed studies to become an Ordained Ministerial Counselor through Pathways of Light. She spent a year studying with Dr. Kenneth Wapnick, has given numerous talks and led study groups.
Christ's Second Coming gives the Son of God this gift: to hear the Voice for God proclaim that what is false is false, and what is true has never changed.
This is God's Final Judgement: "You are still My holy Son, forever innocent, forever loving and forever loved, as limitless as your Creator, and comletely changeless and forever pure. Therefore awaken and return to Me. I am your Father and you are My Son."
The above are the first sentnce and the last paragraph of the topic What Is the Last Judgement? on page 455 of the Workbook For Students of A Course In Miracles.
Anytime we have an ego reaction to something that we are observing in our outer world, it is an opportunity for healing. They are Holy Instants that allow the miracle to occur as we shift our thinking from fear to love.
Please join us as we discuss this, maybe you will gain a new perspective :-)
Why listen to us? Who are we?
We are students of A Course In Miracles who are dedicated to allowing love and healing into our lives and the lives of others. We meet weekly in Whitby Ontario which is located about a half hour east of Toronto. Our intention is to create a highly healing energy space for like minds to connect and expand.
How to find us in person?
We are on meetup - http://www.meetup.com/Living-with-Love-ACIM-Discussion-Group/

We love meeting others on this similar journey and I hope to connect with all who feel to :-)
Christ's Second Coming, which is sure as God, is merely the correction of mistakes, and the return of sanity. It is a part of the condition that restores the never lost, and re-establishes what is forever and forever true.
Pray that the Second Coming will be soon, but do not rest with that. It needs your eyes and ears and hands and feet.It needs your voice. And most of all it needs your willingness. Let us rejoice that we can do God's Will, and join together in its holy light. Behold, the Son of God is one in us, and we can reach our Father's Love through Him.
The real world is a symbol, like the rest of what perception offers. Yet it stands for what is opposite to what you made. Your world is seen through the eyes of fear, and brings the witnesses of terror to your mind.
The real world cannot be perceived except through eyes forgiveness blesses, so they see a world where terror is impossible, and witnesses to fear can not be found.
The Holy Spirit mediates between illusions and the truth.
The goal the Holy Spirit's teaching sets is just this end of dreams. For sights and sounds must be translated from the witnesses of fear to those of love.
If you but knew how much your Father yearns to have you recognize your sinlessness, you would not let His Voice appeal in vain, nor turn away from His replacement for the fearful images and dreams you made.
Accept your Father's gift. It is a Call from Love to Love, that It be but Itself.
Christ's is the vision I will use today.
Today belongs to love. Let me not fear.
We will de discuss what the Christ is and in our own sharing we learn, for as two or more are gather in His name, the energy amplifies and Spirit is able to speak through us.
The Word of God is given me to speak. Creation's freedom promises my own.
Everything looked upon with vision is healed and holy. Nothing perceived without it means anything. And where there is no meaning, there is chaos.
The world you see but shows you how much joy you have allowed yourself to see in you, and to accept it as yours. And, if this is its meaning, then the power to give it joy must lie within you.
There is no need to learn through pain. And gentle lessons are acquired joyously, and are remembered gladly.
These are just a few sentences from the first 2 pages of Chapter 21 of ACIM. We will discuss these ideas and more, so please do have a listen as Sarah, Matthew and Peter converse.
