With work piling up on my desk and for clients, I could think I am the victim of all the appointments and tasks that I have. Or, I could realize it is only my thoughts that imprison me.
Of course, the world would teach us to blame and continue feeling victimized and pressured and overwhelmed. Yet I can look at all of this differently, and I have. That is, I could see peace instead of what I would see.
I walk the middle path no matter what is occurring. I can have peace even if the world as collapsing all around me.
My interpretations are what gives rise to any discomfort I may feel. I must always be willing to say to myself, “There is another way of looking at the world.”
When I do this, and I have had to the last few days, then yes, my life flows more easily. Sure, I do have the times where I get stuck on what I would like to see as the outcome to any particular situation but with the letting go process is just as I said, a process.
Be gentle, be kind and compassionate with yourself. Isn’t that what Holy Spirit would want? He sees only our holiness, shouldn’t we?
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.
