March 25th 2018 “Palm Sunday” Unity in Edinboro service. The week prior to giving this talk I had a few intense forgiveness encounters that encouraged me to practice deep Self-Inquiry and ask for help from Spirit more frequently. I became very conscious of all the judgments still present in my mind and how important it is to examine these false beliefs, because God will not undo them without my consent. Learning how to receive Spiritual guidance is important but actually listening to it is vital to our health, happiness and awakening.

There is no fear in love. Fear leads to feelings of punishment and hurt. Special relationships are incomplete thoughts of love, created to distract us from the real stuff. However, all relationships can be brought into alignment with Spirits purpose of forgiveness. This is the purpose of the world, to correct our belief that fear can’t be removed. Only Perfect Love can cast out fear and when Love is brought to full awareness then there will be no fear at all. This understanding of how Love removes fear was a pivotal turning point in my life 15 years ago. Sincere prayer and the lessons contained within ACIM showed me the only Real alternative to my panic, paranoia and emotional terror. I have been listening to this “inner call” ever since and my world has turned upside down, but in the right way!
Paths to peace. “I AM AWAKE”, said the Buddha. “I AM”, said Jesus. Is there a difference? Celebrate the ancient non-attachment teachings of Buddhism and the radical forgiveness teachings of A Course in Miracles. Are they the same? Does it even matter? Build a foundation for peace anywhere you plant your roots. Commit fully to the direction of your heart. Do the practices and mind training asked of you. The form matters not, but the means of accomplishment provides purpose and brightness to the highly individualized journey.
Listen to this Unity celebration and participate in a meditation on building a foundation for inner peace with the mortar and clay of A Course in Miracles. Remember the ego has devised a plan for peace that is made on sand and Spirit has created one that is sustained by the indestructible energy of the Children of God. The only reason the sand hasn’t blow away yet is because the little children of God still like to play in the sand box. However, all the grains can be filtered out when the silly game is seen for what it is.
Enter an experience with me on ACIM, Manual for Teachers Chapter 10 “How is Judgment Relinquished?” by listening to spontaneous wisdom, instead of mental judgments. Wisdom is not judgment; it is the relinquishment of judgment. We don’t really need to give up judging because we never actually possessed the ability in the first place. It’s all about becoming aware that we cannot judge. This can be accomplished through practicing forgiveness, self-inquiry and questioning our beliefs,both good and bad. Another method of coming to the understanding that we cannot judge is through actively judging everything we see and evaluating the results. For many there seems to be a cycling in and out of these modes of relinquishing judgment. Consciously choosing to let go of judgment through practicing lessons in A Course in Miracles is the easier, kinder and softer way. What we don’t deliberately address in the light of awareness will manifest itself in our life eventually, often in less than desirable ways.
This celebration service reinforces the blessed message of Supreme Happiness promised to us by Jesus during his Sermon on the Mount, thousands of years ago. The same message is delivered by Jesus in A Course In Miracles just in what I believe to be a more direct and clear way. Listen to this Unity service commentary about how sincere prayers of the heart awaken direct experiences of purity, abundance and supreme happiness. This has always been the message of Christ.
