In quiet I receive God’s Word today.

This morning I was up at dawn. It was a time of stillness and quiet listening, save a cat who insisted on carrying on a conversation, but it was okay. Once settled on my lap, the purring commenced. In our mantra together, we spent time being as One. I relish in this experience with a cat, just feeling the gentle vibration. Yet, the vibration of God is even more profound.

I love the quiet. I love being quiet. I love an atmosphere of quiet. That is truly my preference in all the world. I can’t imagine a life without spending time in the quiet. Some I watch are so busy in there lives. Don’t get me wrong I can be busy too, but I am busy in an atmosphere of quiet. I told the story in my book, I am Entitled to Miracles! that I was not raised with quiet. In fact, it was much noise with radios, police scanners and TV all the time. I suppose it is why I liked the scene with the Grinch (book/animated) where he doesn’t like Christmas because of all the NOISE, NOISE, NOISE. That was me. And I’m born on Christmas. I guess I had a lot in common with Mr. Grinch.

I came to realize it was the NOISE in my mind that disquieted me. Yes, the noise outside is a contributing factor but my own thoughts can dissuade peace. I always have the power to choose the teacher I will walk with during my day. I choose Holy Spirit. He will keep my day running at a gentle purr.

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.
