Love cannot condemn

Rest in Love, Rest in Truth

You are loved!  Most of us do not allow ourselves to feel it.  Why?  Don’t we believe we are lovable?  You ARE loved, warts, gifts and all!  Give yourself the gift of feeling it.  Really feel it.   Go to a silent place within, close your eyes and feel yourself being held, as if you were a small child again.  Feel …

Can we ever agree?

Yes we can agree and it happens when we find common ground on SOMETHING! The gift is in finding what that SOMETHING is that we can agree upon! When we are in agreement there is peace.  Where is peace when we disagree? Eventually when we master the Course In Miracles we will have PEACE even when “disagreement” is …
