What is Reality?

Through my studies of A Course in Miracles I've encountered over and over the teaching that the world that I see is not reality.  Its effects aren't real either.  Hmmm.  This has been challenging since it all does seem so real.

But, at some point in my (and our) time here, I have asked this question.  If I am created in God's image, as love, limitless, powerful, spirt (not form), then, what is it that I am seeing and experiencing?  

It seems I give meaning to all that I see and experience.  And as I choose differently, trying out these new principles, what is going to happen??  I am going to have a different experience for sure.  

It has taken me some time to open my mind to this but it is already having its healing effects on my mind.

This World is Not My Home

This world is not my home, and I've known this, sensed it, since I was a young girl.  Haven't you at some point realized that this world makes no sense?  That there is injustice, inequality, struggle, etc.?  It's just plain hard (and insane).

And I used to blame God for it.  

But, through my search for truth and clarity and wanting to understand, I have found answers.  But, not in the world.  I have found them within, as I open up to spiritual principles and practice them.  Studying and practicing the principles of A Course in Miracles consistently has taught me to "see" with clarity.

Heaven, Peace, Love, God are all within each of us.  And it is in moments of deliberate stillness and quiet, in our desire to know the Truth and ourselves, that we find Home.  Yes.  Home is there, waiting for us to make a stop from all the stuff of this world that keeps us busy, worried, fearful.  Can you imagine?  It's always been there.  Waiting.  

We can begin by just spending a few moments at a time going within.  Breathe. Ask.  Practice gratitude.  With each moment, we come a bit closer to experiencing Oneness.
