I begin. Again.

Through various teachers as well as being with the text directly I have been reading, learning, exploring, sharing A Course in Miracles for well over 2 decades. It has supported me through so much in my life. 

I am participating in a course with Alan Cohen, as we work through his book A Course in Miracles made Easy. It's another approach to receiving the material, in addition to reading the print book, attending the webinars, taking notes I am also listening to the audiobook, again. 

And today have once again decided to begin the workbook again. 

It appears March is a time I head back in. Hmmm

February is behind me now, thankfully. This last week has been incredibly hard on my heart and I need these words, this teaching to keep my spirit and my heart high.

So I will do my mental first aid, and ACIM is on top of the list. 

Lessons - I am here! 
Last visit through the lessons - I made it through about 2 months...let's see how far I go this time. 

I have read the text often. Yes, all of it and many pieces more often, as needed. However maybe with the lessons integrated I can keep my heart high and in the light, more often. 

So maybe I start in March as maybe I need to spring clean my heart. 

Love is our natural state, yes and it is up to us to maintain and look after it, cherish the light and be happy. 

From Chapter 18 

"Happy dreams come true, not because they are dreams, but because they are happy."

Choose again

This is my view right now as I get back to basics. 

Reading nourishing words, writing and studying ♡ 

The tripod is here as this is spot I have been doing live videos for The Happiness Studio this past week or so.

Live video # ~ 85/100 🦄

Yesterday during our live webinar with The Happiness Academy ( certificate program -  Happiness Facilitator ) we spoke about getting back to basics. 

These are some of my basics:

Rich soul nourishing words
I read them and I write them 
Study/learning 
And connection

This week, once again, (by someone who lives in a different world view than mine) I was told I was selfish, narcissistic, delusion and hurtful to all those around me - gosh it was a hard Tuesday/Wednesday.  

I had to pick myself up and DECIDE to do my work-my work which keeps me in the light, in the truth of love. Love is a powerful force, stronger than fear or anger - however because we are both human and spirit we need to make a consistent effort to keep our light shining, by polishing and refining our hearts and minds through forgiveness and love. 

On Wednesday, needing softness and love I watch - A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - Mr. Rogers movie - and in the movie, we learn - Fred Rogers sticks with what works for him, his basics; prayer, nourishing words, exercise, routine and love - he also had to make effort to stay in the light of love and kindness. 

It can be done. 
It requires a decison, when things are dragging us down, when darkens arrives, we can decide to choose again, as ACIM says, we can always choose again. 

Choose to see love 
Choose not to be a victim of the world we see or what is thrown at us
Choose to envision a world of our hearts, a world of love. 

Once we begin to see the world through love - our perception shifts

As Wayne Dyer said: " You will see it when you believe it" - he was a great ACIM teacher 😉

So today I am fiing up my cup (aka heart) with the richness of love and forgiveness. 

May your world be blessed through the love and kindness you extend 💜

I begin. Again.
