Be sure to listen below to today’s podcast episode on this lesson (only a couple of minutes long) as I expand on what I have written here. See link below.

Sometimes it seems difficult to believe that “there is another way of looking at this.” Other times it is easy as our hearts are open.

Isn’t that the key, that our hearts and minds are open?

With our hearts open, we realize we don’t like what we see or experience and are willing to allow love in its place.

This comes to me in various circumstances. A younger person I was mentoring stopped communication. I can unknowingly reach into my past and previous relationships with individuals and believe I know the back story on why communication has stopped.

An injury to my arm and hand that has arisen with pain, once again, I can reach into my default mode of research and resources and believe I have diagnosed the problem and up to the point that I believe I need surgery!

A mind that has lost confidence in a few areas of my life. I compare to past situations and believe I know what is underneath.

How about “there is another way of looking at this” and resting here.

And I do, I sit quietly closing my eyes and repeat this as a mantra. Jesus knows what he is doing and so I trust him.

Amen.

Peace,

Deb

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
