Nothing can hurt the real you

Pam Grout is amazing and has an amazing miracle to share with us. READ IT!!!

“Control your own mind. Or somebody else will.”—Tony Robbins 00001b

Thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been using to keep me from jumping on the fear train.

1. Needless to say, I turn to A Course in Miracles where I’m assured that my claim to miracles is not dependent on the rituals of medicine, economics, religion, government, etc. I get miracles for free because of who I am, because of what (not who) the Dude is. And I remember my mantra:  I could see peace instead of this.

2. I practice gratitude. For example, how cool is it that, right now, all that is not essential is being stripped away. Who can even look at ads for tanning beds or smart wash carpet cleaners?

Although Greta Thunberg got a jump on most of us when she refused to comply with society’s accepted structures (school, business as usual, etc), she…

A Short Funny Post

I have mentioned before that I am an answerer on Quora.com.  This is a site where someone in the world asks a question and another person/people answer the question.  The asker as well as anyone else can upvote or downvote with/without comment.

I skip a lot of questions, but, sometimes, you just HAVE to answer a ridiculous question to make a point.  Here are two:

  1. Questioner asks how to download and play games for free that are expensive and high-play.  My answer: Really? Are you seriously asking me how to break into a game on a public site?
  2. Questioner asks what games are you going to play while being forced to stay inside during the virus outbreak?  My answer:  All of them (video games)

Life can be fun – keep smiling.

Namste,

Scott

 

The last book on Planet Earth

Love it when a simple idea really takes flight and is skewed beyond logical reasoning!

Wordifull

It had first been released with very little fanfare and to very little interest.  Critics and readers agreed that it was a painful read; slow, pedantic and really no more than propaganda.

Sometimes the things that end up have a huge impact come in with a whimper instead of a bang.  This book was one of them.  Slowly one came to realize that it was everywhere.  In every store, on every billboard this book was now being lauded as a book everyone Must read.  People scoffed.  Late night comics made jokes about it…for a little while.

Then all of a sudden the same comics were giving it ringing endorsements, “The Book is the last book you will ever need to read.” “Your guide to being a true member of our great society: The Book.”.  Children in high school were given it as assigned reading.  Copies were in every doctor’s and…

Judgments deter miracles

Pam Grout

“The mind continuously creates hypotheses.”—Marilynne Robinson
knight

A couple days ago, at a wonderful vegan pizza restaurant in Ajijic, Mexico, I saw a sign that said, “Listen to your heart, not your habits.”

That could just as well be ACIM Lesson 342. Our brains are on autopilot. They’re wired to look for threats. To automatically mobilize around anything we judge to be scary.

The Course says it’s all a bunch of bunk.

James Twyman made a great point at Satsang yesterday. He brought up medieval knights. With all their breastplates and helmets and other assorted armor, you have to wonder—how did they even move, let alone guard their castles?

And that’s us. Walking around with way too much armor. Our judgments, our hypothesis, our masks make it kinda hard to move. They keep love away.  They deter miracles.

So today, instead of galvanizing myself against something horrible coming at me, I’m…

Help of the Vile

She stepped onto the balcony overlooking the square. Her people, she wasn’t their queen but nonetheless, milled about, oblivious to the danger. How long had she feared this day? How true was the vision? She knew the answer. Regardless, she had to try.

She looked up, as if she could, literally, see the impending doom falling from the heavens. There was no Zeus to stop this, only her tiny body to block the cataclysm.

She began the incantations, putting the ingredients from her vision into the incense burner. She inhaled deeply, continued the old language speech. Her body twisted and lifted into the air.

Her incorporeal form shot through the sky, becoming a barricade to the hurtling meteor. The 300 ton rock deflected, missing Earth. Neither it nor the witch Magnemna would trouble the planet again.

Namaste,
