Things I Love to Do
by Sybil Beulah Maus

I love to walk in dripping woods
When raindrops drum on leaves,
Where sodden footsteps tell of streams
Beneath the roots of trees;
Where violets grow, and snow-white trilliums
Lift their heads in countless millions
...In spring.

I love to loll upon a bank,
And watch the puffy clouds
Shape maps and woolly forms of sheep
That melt away in shrouds;
Where brown-eyed daisies and Queen Anne's lace
Flaunt their petals in my face
...In June.

I love to tramp a dusty road
When August days are mellow,
When noontime heat in shimmering haze
Turns goldenrod to yellow;
Or hear cicadas lost in trees
Shrill their tunes in myriad keys
...In summer.

I love to tread a golden path
When aspen leaves are falling,
Or listen to the quiet dirge
Of blue jays softly calling,
Or sit upon a country fence
And breathe October's sweet incense
...In autumn.

I love to see a crystal world
All sparkling in December
When brilliant skies and frosted earth
Have blotted out November;
When every shrub and tree is dressed
In silvery lacy loveliness
...In winter.

There is no time, no place,
no state where God (Love) is absent.
There is nothing to be feared.

(I inserted "Love" as God is Love)

9 I who am host to God am worthy of Him. 10 He Who established His dwelling place in me created it as He would have it be. 11 It is not needful that I make it ready for Him, but only that I do not interfere with His plan to restore to me my own awareness of my readiness, which is eternal. 12 I need add nothing to His plan. 13 But to receive it, I must be willing not to substitute my own in place of it.

Of course, that reads "Put all your faith in the love of God within you..."

Put all your faith
in the love of Goe within you;
eternal, changeless and forever unfailing.
This is the answer to whatever
confronts you today.

This song that came to me was inspired by Lesson132 in the "Playbook:"
I loose the world from all I thought it was.
I loose the world from all I thought it was
So it can be what it is.
It can never be more than I allow,
Or, for that matter, less.
When I loose the world from all I thought it was,
Dreams can start coming true.
I had made the limits it had to obey.
Now I know that I can give them up today.
Try it yourself and you'll be on your way--
Loosing the world from all you thought it was.
Try it yourself and you will see
Thiings will start turning out,
You'll have something to shout about,
Your life will start working effortlessly.
Because the world can never be
More than I allow it to be for me.

Hi to all members of the group. I've been a student of "The Course" for many years and I'm very excited to find this group. I am also a long time Reiki practitioner. I look forward to connecting with others who share the same interests.

"Let me remember that my goal is God.

All that is needful is to train our minds to overlook all little senseless aims, and to remember that our goal is God. His memory is hidden in our minds, obscured but by our pointless little goals which offer nothing, and do not exist. Shall we continue to allow God's grace to shine in unawareness, while the toys and trinkets of the world are sought instead? God is our only goal, our only Love. We have no aim but to remember Him."

In remembrance of the Source our attention and identity are mutually shifted. The Holy Instant is the momentary pause wherein all thought of self is replaced with remembrance of God and as God is all ~ we become that All-ness. This "event" has the effect of expunging the memory of a flawed identity that we've miss created (creation apart from our Divinity)... our ego identity. As the idea of our flawed self is diminished in small bits, we are healed. Often this healing is manifest in physical form (re: the healings of Mary Baker Eddy, Joel Goldsmith & Ernest Holmes, to name but a few) and is the advance toward total surrender of the little self...

The shift of identity does begin to occur in this realm, often forgotten in the moment of the experience, by degrees,... otherwise what is the purpose of working toward that goal while here in corporeal form? Countless numbers of people have had the brief Satori that draws them forward, leaving a trail of guideposts and road-maps for our edification as to the process.

The Course is an alive and vital part of day-to-day life and we are enhanced and uplifted by every application of it to our lives. To begin and to arrive are the same in the place where time has ceased to be, but within the illusion of time... we can begin to "fade" from one realm unto another.

At least, this has been my experience ~ the goal is to get beyond having a goal and slip into streaming consciousness ~ and ultimately, loose all consciousness. God is the unconsciousness state of unfolding Being ~ beyond a condition of "self-awareness" and transcending all sense of person or identity... as the Master said, "God is Life". Bit by bit, we take tiny steps into the Kingdom while escaping the material experience.

A short rumination ~ not as an opposing view but, perhaps, as a suggestion of a higher expectation ~
