a web site dedicated to EXPERIENCING miracles NOW
the gifts of God cannot be dependent on time and therefore would have to be made available to His creations NOW
by cultivating a peace which surpasseth all understanding we make ourselves ready to give and receive miracles.
And the peace of God, which surpasseth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
This web site will provide practical TOOLS which can be used to enhance anyones day-to-day life
and will present information from A Course In Miracles perspective.
A Course In Miracles can be summed up very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exits.
Herein lies the Peace of God.
In fact the concepts and ideas of the course are so simple, elegant and logical that anyone can understand them.
In REALITY there is ONLY the PEACE + LOVE & JOY of God in Heaven,
and that REALITY can never be threatened
and that REALITY can NEVER change.
There really is nowhere ANYONE can be but at One with God in Heaven. Nothing else exits.
At times when we are experiencing something other than the Peace + Love & Joy of God ... are the times when we may need help in remembering Who we are and Where we are. In those times God has given us an Answer, a Comforter Who can translate the world we've made from our illusions of fear back into the REAL WORLD of peace + love & joy.
In REALITY there is nothing we do ... since there is nowhere we can be but at one with God and His creations. The Course In Miracles is simply a tool we can use to save time until the awareness of God + peace + love & joy returns to our awareness.
The Comforter is ALWAYS at work in EVERYONE'S life gently guiding them HOME. A Course in Miracles will resonate with those who have eyes to see and ears to hear this astonishingly simple message.
There really is no need to wonder off into the desert of thousands of meaningless words and terms to describe something other than peace + love & joy. All we need to be aware of is that we are not at peace. Nothing more.
When we are not at peace ...
we are in need of healing ...
and we have a Comforter Who we can always call upon.

gratitude based on comparisons
almost every self-help and spiritual speaker and/ or author talks about the importance of gratitude or thankfulness. The perspective most people think about gratitude is based on some kind of comparison. Some people are thankful for clean water to drink, Some people are thankful for something to eat today, Some people are thankful for food shelter and clothing, Some people are thankful they have a job, Some people are thankful for their new BMW, Some people are thankful for their $500,000,000 house on the French Riviera, Some people are thankful for their new cardboard box house under the interstate overpass, Some people are thankful for their spouse, Some people are thankful for their children, Some people are thankful for their health, Some people are thankful to be alive ...
the laundry list can go on and on.
"Gratitude is a lesson hard to learn for those who look upon the world amiss.The most they can do is see themselves as better off than others. And they try to be content because another seems to suffer more than them. How pitiful and deprecating are such thoughts! For who has cause for thanks while others have less cause, and who could suffer less because he sees another suffer more? Your gratitude is due to Him alone Who made all cause of sorrow disappear throughout the world. (L195 link) "
"Him alone Who made all cause of sorrow disappear throughout the world" ... is talking about putting on the Mind of Christ. It is the ULTIMATE gift God has given us. With the Mind of Christ no matter where we find ourselves along the sliding scale of success or failure in the ways the objective world may judge ... we can KNOW the peace of Christ.
the flaw in engaging in gratitude based on comparison is that it strengthens the idea of separation and strengthens illusions.
By being grateful for the solution, we strengthen the magnitude of the LIGHT ... for the LIGHT has come !
"Do you want freedom of the body or of the mind? For both you cannot have. Which do you value? Which is your goal? For one you see as means; the other, end. And one must serve the other and lead to its predominance, increasing its importance by diminishing its own. Means serve the end, and as the end is reached the value of the means decreases, eclipsed entirely when they are recognized as functionless. No-one but yearns for freedom, and tries to ﬁnd it. Yet he will seek for it where he believes it is, and can be found. He will believe it possible of mind or body, and he will make the other serve his choice as means to ﬁnd it. (T: FREEDOM AND THE HOLY SPIRIT link) "
