“What could you not accept, if you but knew that everything that happens, all events, past, present and to come, are gently planned by One Whose only purpose is your good?” A Course in Miracles, Lesson 135, Paragraph 18
That passage in ACIM Lesson 135 is a great comfort to me. It’s been an important tool in my spiritual practice. There have been times when I’ve had to use it like a flashlight to try and get some kind of understanding of WHY things were happening the way they were.
It takes great willingness to accept this statement as true. If you’re willing to accept this statement as a guiding statement, a comforting truth, then it can have a profound and miraculous effect in your life. It IS done unto you as you believe. Accept the good. Trust in the Good. Do not allow yourself to be swayed by perception.
The light IS within – it’s never in the world. Look within – seek the kingdom first, and all else WILL be added unto you, because it’s already been given and all it takes is your willingness to remember it. The keys to remembering?
None of these cost you any money.
You don’t have to have any time to acquire them.
You don’t have to climb a mountain or run a race.
These are your natural skills and talents if you’re willing to activate them Go for it!
