Benevolence

One of my most favorite quotes from A Course in Miracles asks,
why be angry at a world that “merely awaits your blessing to be free?”
(Quantum God, Chapter Nine, “Judgment…”)

 

What with not feeling great, concern over my mom and the cost of gas to visit her plus loss of income during the trip, and the joyful distraction of being with family, I have been forgetting to bless this week.

 

Oh, there’s no forgetting how blessed I am! I have not, however, remembered my nightly blessings, much less blessing often and indiscriminately.

Whatever we eat and drink, whatever we think or imagine, every emotion we feel—they all have a physical affect within us, and those changes cause chemical, electromagnetic, and para-physical waves to ripple outward, ultimately influencing everything that exists. This is how prayers and blessings work. (Quantum God)

Will you join me in the coming week in blessing—merely wishing others well—now and then, here and there? This beautiful world and all its inhabitants can only benefit by our gift of benevolent energies.

Thank you, dear heart.

love and blessings,

The Keys to Well-Being

I was listening to Abraham talk about healing this week. The points covered were nothing new, but we all—or I do—need reminders for just about any area of living. And these points do apply to any area of life. The material, in fact, was very Quantum God-ish, and included:

■ Well-being is the very nature of the body.
■ Do your best to feel as good as you can emotionally, at every moment.
■ Focusing on what’s wrong makes you, well, focus on what is wrong,  which magnifies the hurt or illness or problem.

Your cells know exactly how to ask and what to do. If you could completely get out of the way and trust, you would become well again, because the cells know what they need and they are asking their direct Source of Life. If you’re not in the way of that, that cell’s going to find its recovery. And if that cell does, the other cells can, and if enough of them do, you’re going to feel really good.

If you can find a way to convey hope and trust and faith…the natural resources will take care of everything else. (Abraham)

I have seen how trust works in the area of finances; I once attended a substitute teachers meeting where we were instructed on how to apply for food stamps during the coming summer. I fretted for a couple of days until Spirit got through with the message, No need to worry—you won’t need food stamps. No more fear and no more problem; trusting Spirit opened the channel for abundance, and I allowed “enough” to come in those non-teaching months.

In any area of life these are the keys, in order: Hope. Faith. Trust. Knowing. Allowing. Accepting.

Another key? Love—which, dear heart, I send to you.

Oh, Look! A Dog Show!

At this time, I’m still recovering from rotisserie chicken I tried to keep too long. Tad is (barely) living with a broken heart. Elaine has not posted her progress on Facebook since her last round of chemotherapy a month ago. This country that was colonized by immigrants is in an uproar about its diversity. And I could go on…

Elements of depression
Sometimes each of us feels lonely, helpless, at a loss.

BUT

■ You are not alone, no matter how isolated you may feel.
■ You are not insignificant. Rather, you are supremely unique, and the universe needs you.
■ You don’t have to go through this by yourself. Get out of the house. Call on a friend. Share a hug.
■ You don’t have to suffer, feeling desolate and lifeless and hopeless. Don’t think thoughts that make you feel bad! And know that time will help, and life will get better.

Often Jenny or Cecilia would run inside crying, “Mama Chelle, I have an owwie,” and she’d hold out a finger with a barely discernible pink mark on it. “I need a Band-Aid.”

“Are you dripping blood?” I’d ask, kissing the finger. “You’re okay.” Then I’d engage her in washing green grapes for treat time or watching Sesame Street or Teletubbies. The key was to shift her focus from hurt to fun. (Quantum God, Chapter 20, Change…)

While fun may be too far a stretch, distraction is perfect. Distractions change the direction of our thoughts and the quality of our emotions.

Oh, look!

No matter how bad we feel at any moment, it’s really important to work on thinking about things that help us feel better. I’m not talking about shifting from depression to joy, but maybe depression moving into hope. Anger moving into understanding. Irritation moving into peace. Why? Because what we habitually think and feel becomes the life we live, the events we attract.

Think only the thoughts you choose to materialize.

That is so important: Think only the thoughts you choose to materialize.

And you are not alone, no matter how isolated you may feel! If you need a hug or a kind word, dear heart, know that no matter what condition I’m in, I’m always available for a hug, and always sending you

love and blessings,
