Right now, I am deep into the book A Return To Love (which are reflections on the Principles of A Course In Miracles) and will be sharing the “aha” moments that I read from this book. Aha moments that will shape my life and that I want to continue to be in the forefront of my life.

Here is some meat to chew on for the day:

“We think we authored God, rather than realizing that He authored us. The Course says we have an authority problem. Rather than accepting that we are the loving beings that He created, we have arrogantly thought that we could create ourselves and then create God.”

“We set aside our normal mental habit patterns and allow them to be superseded by  different, gentler mode of perception. That is when it means to let a power greater than we are direct our lives.”

“Love is real. It’s an eternal creation and nothing can destroy it. Anything that isn’t love is an illusion. Remember this, and you’ll be at peace.”

“Closing our hearts destroys our peace because it’s alien to our nature. It warps us and turns us into people we’re not meant to be.”

“Let’s not just ask for  new job, a new relationship, or a new body. Let’s ask for a new world. Let’s ask for a new life.”

“You are a child of God You were created in a blinding flash of creativity, a primal though when God extended Himself in love. Everything you’ve added on since is useless.”

“The ego is quite literally a fearful thought.”

“Sometimes people think that calling on God means inviting a force into our lives that will make everything rosy. The truth is, it means inviting everything into our lives that will force us to grow–and growth can be messy. The purpose of life is to grow into our perfection.”

As I continue to read and allow my spirit to eat, I will share on a weekly basis.
