One of my favorite lines in A Course in Miracles is “to heal is to make happy.”
I find that a lot of people think this means to make “other people” happy (and it can mean that) but I find that many people have forgotten about making themselves happy.
The love that you have withheld from yourself will heal you.
If you have a condition other than perfect peace and perfect love, then the way to heal is to make yourself happy. This might sound way too simplistic but I have found it IS this simple. Love is the answer to every problem, difficulty and sickness you experience.
To me, the very fast track to healing and happiness is A Course in Miracles – not just to read it, but to make a commitment to do what it says, to do all 365 workbook lessons and to practice and apply the ideas to every situation in your life.
A Course in Miracles is a systematic way to train your mind to get out of the energy fields that are making you sick, tired, afraid, depressed and in a seeming experience of lack.
These can seem like bold claims but you will know they are true when you try them out in your life and see that they do, in fact, work. You will know that you can heal yourself when you see yourself doing it.
How can I make such statements with certainty? I have seen every aspect of my own life transformed as I had a willingness to keep an open mind and try these ideas in my own life. I have seen alcoholism, sickness, depression and food addiction disappear.
What I have discovered that a lot of spiritual people do is make themselves guilty for being sick or having problems. This is not helpful. They make themselves guilty for having cancer or no money, and the guilt is precisely the thing that is making you sick, and the very thing that needs to go.
Jesus in A Course in Miracles in the Manual for Teachers tells us:
“You do not love yourself.”
Think about that and see if it is true for you. Do you love yourself?
He goes on to say:
“But in his (Jesus) eyes your loveliness is so complete and flawless that he sees in it an image of his Father. You become the symbol of his Father here on earth. To you he looks for hope, because in you he sees no limit and no stain to mar your beautiful perfection. In his eyes Christ’s vision shines in perfect constancy. He has remained with you. Would you not learn the lesson of salvation through his learning? Why would you choose to start again, when he has made the journey for you?”
You, who are reading this, are wholly lovely and flawless – an image of God here on earth.
That’s a whole new way of looking at yourself! Imagine if you were to think of your holiness all day long instead of the attack/guilt/judgement thoughts you normally think about yourself! Think how differently you would show up if you began to acknowledge your innocence and perfection.
All healing is release from fear, release from the past and release from lack of love (towards yourself and others).
In this video today, I talk about my own personal method of healing. I get people talking. I find it helpful to know where you think you are located in your own belief system in time and space and the way I do this is to get you talking. Within a sentence or two, I know exactly where you think you are by the words you use.
Now, this location is only a temporary spot and it is not where you really are in reality, but for a moment you have trapped yourself in a location and you will know exactly where you are by your words, thoughts and beliefs.
Obviously I am not able to talk with everyone, and that’s not necessary.
You can begin to pay close attention to your own words, thoughts and beliefs and discover your location on your own, and then you can make a commitment to train your mind through A Course in Miracles.
In today’s video, I invite and encourage you to ask yourself two questions:
What are your thoughts about yourself?
What is your state of mind?
Then what? Pay attention and move your location out of fear.
One of the best ways to love yourself is to stop being guilty.
Once you notice guilt, you can stop it. Once you notice any emotion, you can stop it. It is no longer the boss of you. You recognize that you have the power to think differently, to see differently, to show up differently.
You find out that you are no longer a victim. Things still occur the way they always did, but they no longer have power over you.
This is a miracle, which is a shift in perception.
You see that in the middle of whatever seems to be occurring, you can be happy.
You can be in a state of mind of grace and gratitude. You suddenly know that you are responsible for what you see and that you get to decide and choose the feelings you experience.
The mind-training of A Course in Miracles is brilliantly designed to bring all that is unconscious in you (unconscious guilt, unconscious self-sabotage, unconscious attack) to your consciousness awareness where you actually SEE what you are doing to yourself and then you can choose to see things differently.
