Hello, Donors and Patrons alike!
As we come to the end of 2017, I want to share my full gratitude to each of you for supporting MiraclesOne this year. When last I wrote you Paul was just about to leave for deployment. All is going well where he is but he is rather busy, busier than he has been on deployments in the past. He sends his love and thanks to all of you.
My last message I share with you how my heart is calling me more to the silence and connection with God. This continues of course and I have been working away on my new book called Mindful Miracles. It’s been almost five years since I last produced a written book. The last few books have been based on class series I have presented with excerpts and transcripts. But now to write what is in my heart and what I have been learning has been transformative.
As you can see by the lovely logo I engaged for this venture, the book is about bringing the Light of Awareness to our spiritual practice. That is, meditation, mindfulness and A Course in Miracles as one! When I look at the logo, I see a new element each time: a butterfly, a dove, a flame, and a lotus. What do you see when you look at the image?
As the year goes on, I will be embarking more on the production of this material. Those who are monthly patrons, yo will find I will be sharing with you unique exercises, excerpts from the book, and even workshops. I’d love to have feedback on the material that I am creating and so I will be looking to you, our monthly supporters for that information.
To those who do not currently donate monthly, I will still be sharing articles, videos and podcasts the essence of what I have been discovering for myself this past year. It has been a year of Mindfulness and Miracles for me and for that my heart sings.
If you do want to take advantage of what I am offering to monthly patrons, you can sign up here. Whether it’s a few dollars or many dollars, all of it is appreciated in putting this material together. As you know, we are an all-volunteer ministry and expenses are what they are, expenses, and funds are needed.
If you are already a monthly supporter and are not receiving the Lessons in Light messages I sent out a few times over the month, be sure to let me know that you are interested in receiving these messages and the additional opportunities I will have in working with my new material.
As you know from my last message, I’ve made some changes to our offerings. Even after I decided to put the Unity Show on permanent hiatus, Unity came back asking for my return. However, they raised the price 25% more than it was previously. I am happy I made the decision not to continue. We sponsor and pay for our own podcasting services as is and I still did not believe it was the appropriate avenue to follow with the increase in price.
The good news is that my new podcast will be Mindful Miracles as I indicated earlier. Be on the lookout for it soon. As you can see I’ve been reflecting on this quite a bit!
I have been working on the new Mindful Miracles web design as well. Here is a peek at the new site – http://miraclesone.org/mindfulmiracles/ It still a work in progress but getting close. I will be attaching a domain name to it as well. mindfulmiracles.org will be the site address later. More info as that unfolds.
I am tickled with what is coming forth from Spirit as I write, practice and jot down ideas. I can feel already this new essence, an evolvement of my spiritual journey.
I shared this in my last message to you, and it bears repeating:
With A Course in Miracles, more and more I find I step away from the words and into the beingness of its truth. You know that my mandate has always been for the practical application of its teachings and the importance thereof. There is a line in Lesson 189 (I feel the Love of God within me now.), that states these words:
- Simply do this: Be still, and lay aside all thoughts of what you are and what God is; all concepts you have learned about the world; all images you hold about yourself. Empty your mind of everything it thinks is either true or false, or good or bad, of every thought it judges worthy, and all the ideas of which it is ashamed. Hold onto nothing. Do not bring with you one thought the past has taught, nor one belief you ever learned before from anything. Forget this world, forget this course, and come with wholly empty hands unto your God.
I continue to feel a resonance with this passage as my Guiding Light. All I can be is a demonstration of Love. Everyone has the Wisdom and Love of the God within them.
My friends, we have so many FREE ACIM Resources on our website that I hope you will take advantage of them. There is just about everything you could ever want or need about ACIM. I’ve just set up on the Media site video playlists of specific topics like forgiveness, relationships, guilt/innocence, Voice of God/Holy Spirit, inner peace, and how to practice ACIM, for starters. I plan to add more categories as time allows me to do so.
In January, I will be offering meditation and mindfulness classes. I am very much looking forward to teaching meditation again. There will be two online classes and one in-person class. These will be held every other week. See my meditation site – www.meditationsteppingstones.com. There is a 21 Day Meditation Challenge you can take right now for the new year!
I look forward to this time with great expectancy. I am ready to use my creative powers and talents to express my spiritual soul. I am enthusiastic for the transformations to arrive.
I have always maintained that we are equal partners on this journey and I will continue to share that with you. I hope you will take part in what I have to offer and share your experiences with Mindful Miracles with me. You will be in my thoughts and always in my heart of Love.
Thank you for reading this message. I offer you Love, Peace, Light, and Joy today.
