Maturity isn't acquired necessarily with age.  We can be advanced in years and still think and behave immaturely.

Maturity comes with understanding Life, having a relationship with It (God), and through this relationship know ourselves.  Being honest with ourselves is primary, as we look within with non-judgmental yet clear vision, so we can let go of beliefs and thoughts that keep us in fear.  

As I deepen my faith and relationship with the Divine, I find that I trust more, am more at ease and let go of the need to control.  I am also less "reactive" to life's challenges because I know I'm loved and cared for.  

This maturity comes with knowing myself through the eyes of God.  

As I willing choose to see others through this Vision, the sense of separation, the resentments and unforgiveness I hold in my heart begin to give way to oneness, true forgiveness, and ultimately love.

"I Am Everything and I Have Everything"


I love this idea from A Course in Miracles.  It's a concept that I had never encountered before.

God has given us everything through His Spirit as an intrinsic part of us.  Nothing can change that.  Imagine, His spirit is always with us, no matter what we do or say or think.  

And God Is:  Love. Truth. Peace. Joy. Light. Strength. Eternal.  And much more.

God created each of us with all His attributes....but we have forgotten.

Holy Spirit (God's Voice within us) is always reminding us of this truth.  As we remember this moment to moment, that we have everything and are everything in Him, the old self-concepts fall away.  

The ego (our false sense of self) keeps itself alive in our awareness through anxiety, fear, and feelings of unworthiness (as we believe we aren't enough) But this is not what we are.  We need to remember this truth.  God says so.  We are everything and we have everything.

I'm not going to argue with the Almighty!!!

The World I See Holds Nothing I Want.


Our experience has already shown us that the world doesn’t deliver what we want. We know this deep inside us.

Today's Course Lesson 128 is a good reminder of this truth: "The World Holds Nothing I Want."

This is so true. How long does the romance or happiness last when que finally have the house, the car, the job, the relationship, money, power? It's quite fleeting. After a while, we want more or something else.

Only God's Love can satisfy. Why? Because it's real, changeless, it has no degrees, it doesn't judge and is ever present. That seeking we have inside our hearts that nothing seems to fill it? God's Love can and will. Be still. Know God. Within.
