choosing love over fear

Ready For A Miracle?

Ready For A Miracle?

As you know, I’m a big fan of the book, A Course in Miracles (ACIM), which is often described as a self-study curriculum designed to help the reader experience personal transformation.

In Chapter 1, it literally defines miracles. (I know, isn’t that so cool!?) 

There are 50 points, or ways that miracles are described but today, I thought I’d share my top 5. 

Here’s my list:

1. Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle. (3)

hat last sentence is balm to my heart, the gentle reminder that love heals all.

Love: The Antidote to Tragedy

Love: The Antidote to Tragedy

 know I’m not alone in feeling despondent about the tragic and brutal murder of 49 innocent people on Sunday morning in Orlando.

For two days I was in denial about it. I just didn’t want to feel it, believe it was real. That someone could voluntarily harm innocent people right here in my own back yard.

And yet daily, the news is filled with stories like this. Of violence in every country, and city, affecting all walks of life.

So how, as sensitive, loving people, do we face tragedy and not shy away, give up or become hostile?
