Yesterday’s lesson was made easier by the fact that I read Anita Moorjani’s book DYING TO BE ME. While reading the book, I kept thinking…if this is true, it is easy to believe that I don’t understand anything. I guess we all have things that speak to us. This book, in particular, spoke to me because Anita experienced spontaneous remission of cancer, specifically lymphoma, a disease that took my father over to the other side.
Spontaneous remission is a miracle, and the Course tells us there is no order of difficulty in miracles. I was thrilled while reading of this miracle. I have often wondered why we do not hear of more of them. The Course gives us the blueprint to follow to live a life where the miraculous is the commonplace. I am so looking forward to that experience, and am grateful for all the miracles I already experience in my life.
What is the essence of Anita’s message? Love. The Beatles gave it to us all those years ago…Love is all there is. And Anita tells us of the importance of loving ourselves. And for everyone who tells me it is hard to do that…my answer remains the same…it is harder not to. The image of people suffering and in pain is enough to keep me going on Course lessons…it is harder not to.
