“This world you seem to live in is not home to you.  And somewhere in your mind you know that this is true.  A memory of home keeps haunting you, as if there were a place that called you to return, although you do not recognize the voice, nor what it is the voice reminds you of.  Yet still you feel an alien here, from somewhere all unknown.  Nothing so definite that you could say with certainty you are an exile here.  Just a persistent feeling, sometimes not more than a tiny throb, at other times hardly remembered, actively dismissed, but surely to return to mind again.”

Music has been, since childhood, a bridge to the Divine. It goes beyond words and accesses a place deep within me. Some years ago, I felt its most profound effects. I had gone with a friend to a concert of music by Maurice Durufle, his requiem mass. This piece is neither gloomy nor sad, but has an air of serenity. The day after the concert, which I had recorded on tape, I was listening to it again while mopping the kitchen floor. At one point in the music, I suddenly felt an intense longing for God, and cried out, “Father!” There was no audible reply, but I felt a deep peace, as if I had been answered with “I am here.”

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.
