Thought for Today"Every time you state what you want or believe, you're the first to hear it. It's a message to both you and others about what you think is possible. Don't put a ceiling on yourself."
Mary McCarthy - "We are the hero of our own story."
Wendell Willkie - "Free men are the strongest men."
A Course in Miracles, Lesson 260
Often, we act as though we are solely autonomous beings, connected to nothing and no one beyond ourselves. In this lesson, we are taught to remember our divine source. And with that memory, inner peace returns.Let me remember God created me.Father, I did not make myself, although in my insanity I thought I did. Yet, as Your Thought, I have not left my Source, remaining part of Who created me. Your Son, my Father, calls on You today. Let me remember You created me. Let me remember my Identity. And let my sinlessness arise again before Christ's vision, through which I would look upon my brothers and myself today.Now is our Source remembered, and Therein we find our true Identity at last. Holy indeed are we, because our Source can know no sin. And we who are His Sons are like each other, and alike to Him.
Quote of the Day"Spiritual practice supports the development of personal power. Spiritually powerful people are not necessarily people who do so much, as they are people around whom things get done."— Excerpted from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
