I listened to Marianne Williamson’s brilliant lecture last night from Tuesday, May 9th in New York City. I love it when it seems like someone talking to a room full of people is speaking the exact words I need to hear – as if the message was created specifically for me.
Today I get to pray at every turn, as Marianne and the Course suggest, “What would you have me do? Where would you have me go? What would you have me say and to whom?” Today I get to be a vessel for peace and joy. As I walk through my day I have the opportunity to spread only love.
I have been fighting the tasks that I have before me, begrudgingly moving through them with some resentment. Today I focus on the gifts these tasks bring to me and to others that mean a great deal to me. I get to do what has been asked of me, lean in, trust the process. I get to experience the emotions that come to me and appreciate them as they are cleaning out a wound.
There are two very important meditations I want to do which I have been putting off for weeks. Today I lovingly give myself at least one of them. One is about letting go of the past and one is about manifesting the future that is already unfolding. These are gifts I am divinely inspired to provide myself.
I am blessed to expand my thinking. The Course says, “reverse your view of giving so you can receive. For giving has become a source of fear, and so you would avoid the only means by which you can receive.” For today I get to practice no judgment of self or others, for judgment is a powerful indicator of fear. Marianne reminded me that in the Course, there are only two emotions, fear and love, and they are mutually exclusive. Judgment lets me think I am separate instead of one with the Universe. Today I get to practice offering peace and joy that I may have them too.
