Aloha from Maui!
We've spent the last week at a retreat being a student of "A Course in Miracles - moving from fear to love" led by Alan Cohen and our prayer is that wherever you are, you will see the miracles in your life today!
A miracle is when we change our perception from fear to love.
When we view ourselves and others with love we dismantle fear and allow our true light to shine.
We were reminded that no one has the power to hurt us, punish us or cause us pain unless we give others the power to do so (big we know!!!)..
When we feel joy, laughter, passion- we are illuminating our light connecting with our true selves. When we shine our light bright, we then illuminate those around us. The opposite is also true- when we come from fear (our ego), we aren't expressing our true self which is why it feels painful and uncomfortable.
To choose not to forgive is only punishing ourselves. To truly forgive is to view it as though 'it' never happened.
What makes your heart sing??? What would you do if you weren't afraid??
We are sitting on the roots of the banyan tree where a gorgeous lady from the course, Chris, whose parents both survived the holocaust, showed us the power and simplicity of prayer. We are so grateful for her as our teacher and for the many others here who taught us.
