Thoughts with Mari: Lesson 64

“Today, then, let us practice with these thoughts: Let me not forget my function. Let me not try to substitute mine for God’s. Let me forgive and be happy.” I have not memorized the order of the lessons, so I did not remember that this lesson is about the function I have–my true nature and […] Read More

Thoughts with Gayle: Lesson 63

Good morning, How in the “world” can Chicago experience a Friday, this past one, that was almost 50 degrees in temperature and three days later, have it be 17 below with wind chill? Ah, it’s those dramatic, sudden, unexpected, overwhelming and disconnecting occurrences in our lives, whatever form in which they may appear, that catch […] Read More

Thoughts with Deb: Lesson 63

I added more to these Lesson Thoughts when I went to record it today. I hope you will listen to the podcast episode version of it. See link below. Forgiveness, it is a choice and when I made the decision for forgiveness, I am making the decision for peace. I can look at everyday occurrences […] Read More

Thoughts with Mari: Lesson 63

A word used in the Course which has bothered me from time to time is “function”. Somehow it sounds cold, like referring to a machine. Not wanting to be close-minded, I looked it up and found this: “An activity or purpose natural to or intended for a person or thing.” Well, if I let go […] Read More

Thoughts with Gayle: Lesson 62

Good morning, Interesting, a sentence from the text just popped into my mind, “Do you want to be right or happy”.  Hope I didn’t misquote here, if I did, forgive me. There are all too many times I forget how inextricably forgiveness and happiness are linked. Given I can be quite unhappy on any given […] Read More

Thoughts with Deb: Lesson 62

Thoughts with Mari: Lesson 62

“Illusions about yourself and the world are one. That is why all forgiveness is a gift to yourself. Your goal is to find out who you are, having denied your Identity by attacking creation and its Creator. Now you are learning how to remember the truth. For this attack must be replaced by forgiveness, so […] Read More

Thoughts with Deb: Lesson 61

Here are the subtle thoughts coming to me with this lesson as I look out upon the world. I am indeed here to share my light with others. I am a demonstration of the Love of God. I am here to continue to be God’s demonstration of Love by my forgiveness. Yes, the ego could […] Read More

Thoughts with Gayle: Lesson 61

Hi everyone, Not sure what to write about this morning.  Hmm…. Well, perhaps it relates, this indecision, to my conflict about believing today’s lesson.  “I am the light of the world”?, what?  This is clearly not the first time Jesus is telling us we are not guilty, sinful and beyond redemption. Why is it that […] Read More
