Jesus, the mind that authored A Course in Miracles, is the same Jesus that was walking around 2000 years ago.
Way back then and right now in A Course in Miracles, Jesus is saying that if we are asking ourselves how we can be more successful in the world, we are asking the wrong question.
I was reading the Forbes Magazine list of the top 100 greatest living business minds-these are very successful people-and I was amazed to read that these successful people said the same thing that Jesus said: “How can I be more successful?” is the wrong question!!
So if that’s the wrong question what are we supposed to be doing?
Jesus and the greatest business minds agree on the following things:
Number One: BE HAPPY.
To quote one of the great living business minds:
“Making money is happiness, but making people happy is super-happiness.”
In ACIM Jesus says that God’s will for us is PERFECT HAPPINESS, and that our only function here is to be happy!
Number Two: A great teacher is a game changer.
The world’s top business people talked about teachers who changed their lives: the ones who were strict and stern and were not willing to compromise on the vision they held for their students.
Jesus says in A Course in Miracles we should all resign now as our own teachers. We need to stop trying to teach ourselves and let somebody (like Jesus) who knows who we really are, who knows that we are ONLY LOVE, teach us and take an uncompromising stand for us and our truth.
Number three: Trust your inner guide.
Many of the people who made it to this list of the top 100 greatest living business minds were people who trusted their gut feeling, the intuitive voice that told them to go left when everyone else was going right. Listening to their inner wisdom and following it was the key to their success.
In A Course in Miracles, the voice of our intuitive gut feeling is called the Holy Spirit.
Jesus designed the Course to teach us how to hear the Voice of the Holy Spirit as our primary voice, and to trust the guidance that we hear. When we do that, we are not only aligning ourselves with Love, we are also acting in alignment with the highest and best for everyone.
Are You Asking The Wrong Question?
If “How can I be more successful in the world?” is the wrong question, then what is the right question?
Both Jesus and the top 100 greatest living business minds say that the best question we can ask ourselves is,
“How can I be more useful?”
Jesus included a section in the text of A Course in Miracles called “Being Truly Helpful”.
In that section there’s a prayer that Jesus wrote for us to use all the time, and especially when we don’t know what to do, but we want to be of service. When we use this prayer, we are claiming our alignment with God, with the greatest and highest love and truth there is.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the prayer and A Course In Miracles, I’ve included a link to a presentation called “What is A Course In Miracles and why do people love it so much?”‘
This presentation is a little gift for you as a thank you for reading this blog. If you click on the link below, you’re going to get an email in your inbox with the video. It is only 7 minutes long, but it tells you all about the different sections of A Course In Miracles, and about why some people love the Course, and why some people find it complicated (as well as how to simplify it for best results).
And now I’d love to hear from you.
