“We thank our Father for one thing alone; that we are separate from no living thing, and therefore one with Him.  And we rejoice that no exceptions ever can be made which would reduce our wholeness, nor impair or change our function to complete the One Who is Himself completion.  We give thanks for every living thing, for otherwise we offer thanks for nothing, and we fail to recognize the gifts of God to us.”

 

Even though we are told in the Course that the world is illusion, I don’t think this means looking on it with contempt. True, it isn’t our real home, but while we think we live here, we should look upon it with love and appreciation.

 

Yesterday morning, when I took my guide dog Waylon out, I was reminded of the love I can share with other living things. First, there was the dove, which called in a rather harsh voice, probably some kind of alarm note. Then there was the gray squirrel, scrabbling its way up a nearby tree and barking loudly. Waylon, as he usually does, was calm, and I was grateful to hear these living beings expressing themselves, as well as for the scent of wet grass and the cool breeze on my face. I give thanks for all of them.

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.
