I write these posts knowing that if I found something thought provoking, inspiring or helpful, then someone else will too. A Course In Miracles reminds us that we teach what we need to learn, and so in sharing things that speak to my heart, they become more real to me too.
Sometimes here I share my own insights – and sometimes I share what I’ve read, or heard, or discovered from someone else. I have learnt so much from Marianne Williamson, and despite resisting the fact that I should need to read “The Age of Miracles – Embracing the New Midlife” (I’m not that old yet. am I?) it has a considerable amount of underlining in my copy.
And so she asks a question that resonates with me, as it should:
What will I do with the time I still have left?
She continues: ” We were all born carrying a promise – a promise to make the world better – and there’s a yearning to make good on that promise that none of us can suppress forever.
Will we repudiate the glamoroug meaninglessness that has marked our generation so far? Will we recognise the dark and corrupting patterns of our past and rise up to change them? Will we wield the power of lessons learned?
Will we align with the creative pulse of the universe, preparing the ground for a glorious future in which no one can say that we simply gave up – but everyone can say that we finally got going?
Wherever you’ve been, and whatever you’ve done so far, your entire life was building up to this moment. Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness – a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you’ve gone through. You are right on time.
And you are better than you know.”
Today, that brings be peace – and hope – and joy.
