Season’s of Love – A Course In Miracles New Year

December 31, 2007

Season’s of Love

So will the year begin in joy and freedom. There is much to do, and we have been long delayed. Accept the holy instant as this year is born, and take your place, so long left unfulfilled, in the Great Awakening. Make this year different by making it all the same. And let all your relationships be made holy for you. This is our will. Amen. Jesus Christ ~ A Course In Miracles

Enjoy our New Year’s eCard which includes a performance of Seasons of Love by Teachers of A Course In Miracles at the Miracles Healing Center Sunday service this morning (December 30th).

Christmas Advent Calendar – Day 25

December 25, 2007

Tuesday December 25th

Give us a new birth . . .
as we celebrate the beginning of your Son’s life on earth.

-Christmas Vigil Mass

The holy Christ is born in me today.

Watch with me, angels, watch with me today. Let all God’s holy Thoughts surround me, and be still with me while Heaven’s Son is born. Let earthly sounds be quiet, and the sights to which I am accustomed disappear. Let Christ be welcomed where He is at home. And let Him hear the sounds He understands, and see but sights that show His Father’s Love. Let Him no longer be a stranger here, for He is born again in me today.

Your Son is welcome, Father. He has come to save me from the evil self I made. He is the Self That You have given me. He is but what I really am in truth. He is the Son You love above all things. He is my Self as You created me. It is not Christ That can be crucified. Safe in Your Arms let me receive Your Son.

A Miracle in Woolworths

December 24, 2007

angel2.jpg

This is a real miracle story. My Dad is a compere/quiz master but his true career is lifting people’s spirits. At the age of 78 he shows no sign of retiring! Many years ago in Anderson’s Bay, Dunedin, New Zealand… in a supermarket called ‘Woolworths’ he was doing his usual give-away show….

These are his own words (an excerpt from his book):

One dream ending to a give-away occasion happened at a Woolworths Supermarket opening at Andersons Bay Dunedin. My roving commission took me up and down the aisles to locate winners for a variety of prizes, some supplied by Woolies others from my stable of sponsors. I suddenly espied this old tramp of a character, sporting a great pack on his back, and about a years growth of beard sprouting from a ruddy smiling face. Here was an instant target. Hitting my mini hooter I loudly proclaimed he was standing in the Lucky Spot zone and due for a Jackpot pay-out. The crowd gathered around as prizes were piled in his direction – Colgate Toothpaste, Palmolive Soap, chocolates, cigarettes, canned fruit, biscuits, bacon, sausages, the more that was pushed into his pack and into his pockets the broader his smile became. And slowly, tears started to trickle down his cheeks. As he trudged away totally laden with goodies (even a Gillette razor) all the sales ladies within earshot were bawling their eyes out too. That without any doubt was my most pleasurable moment over a lifetime in this give-away game. Other contestants had won houses, holidays, motor-cars and every kind of household appliance – but never had anyone looked as elated as the man we labelled the Back-packer Champion of New Zealand. He’d surely have died since but hopefully with that smile still on his face.

Christmas Advent Calendar – Day 24

December 24, 2007

Monday December 24th

Let that love, that beauty, which was the message to the shepherds, be thine today:

‘Unto thee is born, yea, unto thee — each one — if offered a knowledge, an understanding of the life of the Christ that will renew thy life, thy purpose — if ye will but sing that new song, ‘Love One Another’.”

“Then, as ye give so do ye receive. As He hath given, the love of the Father to the children of men is manifested in that spirit of Christmas that which may now be raised to that consciousness, that level above man’s way of thought, man’s concept of force, power or might; and that the real strength, the real hope, the real contribution is in that still small voice within.”

-from Edgar Cayce’s Christmas story

Christmas Advent Calendar – Day 23

December 23, 2007

Sunday December 23rd
The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness.

See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within, and accept it as the sign the time of Christ has come. He comes demanding nothing. No sacrifice of any kind, of anyone, is asked by Him. In His Presence the whole idea of sacrifice loses all meaning. For He is Host to God. And you need but invite Him in Who is there already, by recognizing that His Host is One, and no thought alien to His Oneness can abide with Him there. Love must be total to give Him welcome, for the Presence of holiness creates the holiness that surrounds it. No fear can touch the Host Who cradles God in the time of Christ, for the Host is as holy as the Perfect Innocence which He protects, and Whose power protects Him.

This Christmas give the Holy Spirit everything that would hurt you. Let yourself be healed completely that you may join with Him in healing, and let us celebrate our release together by releasing everyone with us. Leave nothing behind, for release is total, and when you have accepted it with me you will give it with me. All pain and sacrifice and littleness will disappear in our relationship, which is as innocent as our relationship with our Father, and as powerful. Pain will be brought to us and disappear in our presence, and without pain there can be no sacrifice. And without sacrifice there love must be.

-A Course in Miracles Text, ch. 15 “Christmas as the End of Sacrifice”

Saturday December 22nd

The light has come. You are healed and you can heal. The light has come. You are saved and you can save. You are at peace and you bring peace with you wherever you go. Darkness and turmoil and death have disappeared. The light has come.

Today we celebrate the happy ending to your long dream of disaster. There are no dark dreams now. The light has come. Today the time of light begins for you and everyone. It is a new era, in which a new world is born. The old one has left no trace upon it in its passing. Today we see a different world because the light has come.

Our exercises for today will be happy ones, in which we offer thanks for the passing of the old and the beginning of the new. No shadows from the past remain to darken our sight and hide the world forgiveness offers us. Today we will accept the new world as what we want to see. We will be given what we desire. We will to see the light; the light has come.
