Miracles, Water-Skiing, and Dancing Our Way Out of the Rabbit Hole
I've been looking at the ego in my mind -- with many teachers internally and seemingly external -- for 20+ years.
I can describe the ego (which does not even exist....I'm laughing now, but that's getting ahead of myself) in great detail....I can lecture for many hours on the subject. I can identify its many disguises and tricks and strategies. I can give you "best practices" for early detection, and then some proven methods for dis-arming it. I can share many anecdotes from personal "war" stories to illustrate. I can share my passion and conviction and hope that it will translate for you and become another reinforcement for your own motivation to look within.
In other words, I have a super-duper, triple, Plus-sized Ph.d. in Ego-ology.
(Is the irony ringing for you now like it is me?)
Let's go waaaay back and look at the title of this book again...the one on this course we've been taking. It says, "A Course In Miracles." That's no misnomer or editing oversight. It says, "Miracles" not "ego." MIRACLES. You know....fishes and loaves, water into wine, making the blind see.....the GOOD stuff.
There's even a name for when you live in the Miracle -- The Happy Dream. The word Happy is not meant as a poetic metaphor. It's LITERAL. I kid you not. This is GOOD news!
I'm belaboring a point here because I'm integrating a profound experience that I have been having for the last few weeks. Something "clicked" as I say. After a couple decades (lifetimes?) of studying what the Truth is NOT, I feel like I slid gently into a warm, flowing stream of Miracles. From this place, LOVE commands and I follow joyously, kicking my heels up in laughter all the way.
There's so much to share.
For now, let me just extend a few lessons I received consciously as something much deeper in my Mind was accepting the Holy Spirit as a single point of focus:
