4.1.14

 

 

Not sure what feels so significant about today, but I just feel…different. And ready. And willing. I had a really gnarly night with food last night, and today without even missing a beat I am on the Vegetable Train. T minus 5 days until Fuhrman! I feel more relieved than fearful, and that is a good place to be.

I was reading online about Lesson 22 of ACIM, and I found this quotation from Marianne Williamson. I just changed it around a little bit to reflect my own concept of a Higher Power. Today I was messaging one of my sponsees on Facebook, and my new cell phone tried to autocorrect “God” to “Godzilla”! It was a great and amusing moment for me. God/zilla is everywhere!

“Every situation we find ourselves in is an opportunity, perfectly planned by {God/zilla}, to teach love instead of fear. Whatever energy system we find ourselves a part of, it’s our job to heal it—to purify the thought forms by purifying our own. It’s never really a circumstance that needs to change—it’s we who need to change. The prayer isn’t for {God/zilla} to change our lives, but rather for {Her} to change us.

— Excerpted from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

  1. Oh, I love this! I love hearing you’re feeling so peaceful and calm today on Team Vegetable. I love that you’re eagerly anticipating the Immersion. And I also love that quote. . . I think it’s so true. .It’s never the thing itself, it’s our response to it. I’m going to write more about this as I start my live updates blog post today; but today, a Tuesday trigger day and I’ve already had some quite unpleasant urges, is an opportunity for me to practice love instead of fear. Thanks for the reminder 🙂 XO

  2. 5 days til Furhman!! I’ve been finding it’s getting easier to get back on the vegetable train after a stray. I guess practice makes perfect. 🙂

    Hope the rest of your Tuesday is awesome!
