Day 15 Urtext ACIM W.T. Witness&Text=Consciousness

*I am delighted to share this excerpt from Bill Thetford’s Life Story about the bumpy start both he and Helen had in bringing A Course In Miracles to us: “And while the Course came in a form, which I never anticipated, I did regard this as the answer to my question that there must be another way and that I was determined to find … Read More Day 15 Urtext ACIM W.T.

A Letter to a New Found Writer Friend

21 February 2019 Ace Backwords / Peter Labriola, born September 1956, really fascinates me: I just met him yesterday and upon reading his blog https://acidheroes.wordpress.com/2019/02/04/my-basic-spiritual-outlook/ I commented (and it is still waiting for his approval, so I record this at my own discretion): Damn, you hit it on the head bro, and I suspect you never even heard of ACIM. Have ya? I spent … Read More A Letter to a New Found Writer Friend

Strange Things Happen In This World

2007, that is when I noticed the attention of an older man at the singles group I attended. His attention was special and loving. He was a warm, big-hearted family man, whose loving wife had passed several years before. We had chats and visits through email and on the phone. He touched my heart in a special way. A family is something that seemed … Read More Strange Things Happen In This World

A Human Love Story…

I recently finished reading the autobiographies of the two people who acted as scribes for A Course In Miracles, Helen Shucman, PhD. and William Thetford, Ph.D. Helen’s visions and the possibility of prior lives that they may have shared, gives me reason to reflect on the relationship they had here, especially in what is recorded in the last few years of Helen’s life for … Read More A Human Love Story…

Makeup or No Makeup That Is the Question… ;) Part 2

Makeup or No Makeup That Is the Question… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Part 2 In trying to come to terms with how to write about this, and allow the growth and understanding that I desire to continue, I have been pressed with the opposing philosophies or theories that rest on my heart and mind at this time. A part of me leans to stating the “facts”, well, … Read More Makeup or No Makeup That Is the Question… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Part 2

A Series on Makeup, Beginning With The Epiphany Part 1…12 September 2014

The Epiphany: I realized the reason that a woman doing her best to look as good as she can, in whatever culture she is in, and being aware of what she was saying to the world of the ego that mankind currently dwells in, is to state that this is not life and that there is something greater that we were born to or … Read More A Series on Makeup, Beginning With The Epiphany Part 1…12 September 2014

In Remembrance…

It is good to look at the leaders in freedom around us. We lost one today in Nelson Mandela. His legacy of forgiveness and leadership will continue to inspire us. http://www.deseretnews.com/top/1635/1/-The-23-best-Nelson-Mandela-quotes-in-pictures.html Here are a few of my favorites: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” โ€œThere is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself … Read More In Remembrance…

Sustaining Others While Honoring Your Own Witness…and a Caution About Meditation

A few days ago I wrote this on my description for my “Courage To Be God’s Daughter” program on blog talk radio: “I have been to the temple recently and seen the new film. The Spirit continues to pour out his enlightenment and I am beginning to feel that I must hold back on what I am learning as I read and share my … Read More Sustaining Others While Honoring Your Own Witness…and a Caution About Meditation

Freedom…Family…Church…

Freedom begins with me living true to the principle of freedom and this begins with me learning to trust my own inner voice in any given matter. This is not something that is easily done or allowed. Following the commandments of God gives us confidence in ourselves to be able to trust that we will do the right and be true to who we … Read More Freedom…Family…Church…

Third Week In A Row and Counting….will I be able to stand the test?…

Last week when I was trying to sort out my relationship with the people who were trying to decide what was freedom of speech for me and others in our congregation I kept thinking of “I Am A Child Of God” and I wrote this poem to follow its beat to remind me how grateful I am for all people and circumstances in this … Read More Third Week In A Row and Counting….will I be able to stand the test?…

Family Continued… We Are Here To Work It Out And Testify of Christ

Functionality in this earthly realm is not the ultimate state that the human being is able to achieve. To stop there in the place of “comfort” or lack of “stress” is a sad state of affairs. We were sent here to do great things in the name of the God who sent us, even as Christ was. Even more sad are those who live … Read More Family Continued… We Are Here To Work It Out And Testify of Christ

Family…Just The Beginning

Family statistics or circumstances do not need to define us. Neither does our personal history need to define us before God, even though it may to the world. Some of what you will see here may not be easy to read. Remember they are just circumstances in a life. I do not need to claim my circumstances as my identity as a child of … Read More Family…Just The Beginning
